Hey guys! This is my first ever topic after recently joining, and I don't think it has been discussed! Hope to get some feedback!
I have recently ordered an Akribos XXIV watch online. So now while waiting for my watch to arrive, I wanted to ask if anyone has owned these watches? How have your experiences been?
I didn't even know where the watch was made in so I sent a general enquiry form on their information lacking website and the reply I got was "Akribos XXIV watches are Swiss engineered watches manufactured at our state of the art factory in Hong Kong."
I am really excited to get the watch, but I just hope its not a disappointment.

Quoting cpd (Reply 3): I would have recommended buying a Swiss Engineered watch made in Switzerland.
How much are you paying for one of these things?
Yeah, I know I would usually be very particular where it is made in, but I liked it and ordered it. (Spur of the moment) I paid about $190 US and I got it today and it seems to be a very good watch! The leather belt is quite thick and spongy, it looks exactly as pictured, and works. The build quality seems very good, so it seems to be quite good.
