I missed out on this! How much was it?
It is a very nice watch but does anybody think this is a great price?
I was looking at the AN line on Ashford’s site. This model M-02 is priced substantially lower, especially the ones that are shop-worn, end-of-stock, etc. Also, pictures showed the back as well, with its clean but sparsely decorated ETA movement. (Decorated better than Hamilton, which are generally base ébauches.) I have bought from them before and really enjoyed the customer service. They threw in free FedEx to Canada when I discussed the deal I wanted with them a couple years back on a discontinued Perrellet Jump Hour (beautifully decorated movement and rare complication, $1.7K for $8K MSRP at the time).
Great looking watch and well built....loving this "look."
Does anyone have pictures of the case back?

The watch doesn't appear to exist on their website. I wonder if it is discontinued, or what?

Screen shot showing back (and deal!). In hand, the case is nicely finished on the back with deep engraving and a ‘coin edge’.
Sad that the watch face designer felt the need to place the overly redundant text "DAY & DATE" just over the actual day and date displays. This gives it a cheesy cheap watch look IMHO. I presume it's using a ETA/SW movement with an alternative name?
This is a very beautiful watch. The details on it are amazing. To bad I can not have one. To much Mula!!!
This is a Swiss company continuously operated for over a century, but in recent years managed by an Italian guy, with design offices in Italy. They concentrate on the European market, like a lot of German watchmakers. They were mostly known throughout their history for supplying eloaborate, high-quality movements to other companies.
Their line of $2,500-$3,000 list price divers is interesting: 300-meters with rotating bezels, but they don't look like divers at all, thanks to the Italians.

One thing I like about the Armand Nicolet diver series is that they all have only a 12 and 4 on the watch face. Most companies would figure, "No room for any other numbers than 12 and 4? Then let's just drop all numbers and go with indices everywhere." Not Armand Nicolet. The 12 and the 4 stay. You get the feeling that Nicolet's birthday might be December 4. And in truth, there is plenty of room for more numbers, say 10 and 2. Why just the 12 and 4? That's the mystery of Armand Nicolet.

Interesting. That design is distinctly Italian; that is to say, bold, likely to be loved by some, but equally likely to be hated by others.
It's cheaper on ebay
Vosegus
And possibly fake too.
The "Automatic Day and Date" on the face is their version of Orient's "Water Resistant." Too much, not needed.
Why put a rubber strap on a dress watch and doubly why would it cost 50$ more than a leather strap?
Absolutely beautiful watches, but about 5-6mm too large for my liking, with a lug-to-lug of 53mm.
Same M02 Day & Date range is going for $625 to $800 at Ashford this week (as of 12/1/2017), as part of a 'cyber week' sale.

The model number of the watch we're discussing. It's available in many different color ways, but they're all 43mm in diameter.

I Think the same. Beautiful watch but this is not a good offer, for example in Ashford is cheapest, so please repeat it with a better price.
any shots of the display back? it’s mineral?
We need a Bell & Ross drop.

Good points man. I agree actually, I think I'm just in a twattish mood today. Nice one on the Omega. I'm a PO man myself but I might get a speedy one day.
An original Rolex submariner (no date), adjusted for inflation, would cost $1500 today. A far cry from the $8000 Rolex is asking. Even as recently as 2007, it used to cost half that, $4000 for the exact same watch.
A $3000 submariner would be a nice price correction, after the price bubble, supported by Chinese nouveau riche and Russian oligarchs, bursts.
Too bad they are not a well respected brand. They make some beautiful watches.

You have your opinions, and I disagree--on both MSRP's used in the industry....and I own this watch--it is very nicely finished. I am not going to change your mind, good luck with your watches. Best regards.

I own 2 of them, and you're right. They are very well made beautiful watches. They catch criticism from watch snobs because they use ETA movements, and their list prices are ridiculous. But to be blunt, ETA movements are better than a lot of in-house movements , they have a great track record, are very accurate, and can be fixed by any good watchmaker. But these are not collectable watches from a re-sale standpoint. Buy them because you like a very nice watch.
I'm pretty sure the case is not available in rubber, only stainless. If it is that is probably a world first and one very good mechanism.
any previous buyers care to comment?
Could anybody tell me how much was the M02 in this drop? Not sure if it is worth it waiting for the next one.
Looking for a clean well designed, "smart casual with a dash of adventure/sport" watch in the $400-800 range and I have a thing for blue hands. Don't care too much about brands and movements. Any tips welcome. Thanks!

You can get a beautiful Orient Star for $500 or so. They are first rate. I own two. At the upper end of your range I would check out Stowa. Their Bauhaus watches are gorgeous and well-priced.

I have $3,000 that I can spend on a watch, should I get this swiss made watch and save the rest? Or is there a better watch for the price?

Tudor, omega and a Rolex date just have better heritage, resale value and a better reputation for building a good watch.
ytsu12
Hey! If you want to spend 3k on one watch i can recommend the omega Speedmaster Prof. , Tudor Pelagos, Tudor Black bay, Rolex Datejust maybe if you can get your hands on one a Panerai. Or even a Grand Seiko! you could also go for IWC. If you want 2 you can get a speedmaster reduced and a Nomos. or maybe some tag heuer (not my first recomendation).
Very handsome watch!
Beautiful. Found a great review on it . I'm not 100% sure how this site works but I assume the price drops as more people agree to purchase. Is the lowest price drop hidden until enough people order?
Jon_K_wpg
No, generally any price points the group can reach will be shown already. The only time I've seen a new price point being added, mid-'drop', is when the people at Massdrop managed to secure a better deal with the vendor.

Why this picture in listing shows twenty three jewels and entire description says it have 25 ?
Another mistake in listing, pathetic, especially looking at the price point
Lovely watch thought

There is nothing wrong with pointing out mistakes, but you don't have to behave so immaturely.
SickMeds
What is that, an ETA 2824? Selita 200?
Fantastic watch
So what is the difference between this one and the one from this website? I see some design differences like the numbers and the location of the day, but i am thinking more of the movement and overall quality. As far as i can tell they are similar but i am no expert and the one fromt he below website is ~$800

I would love it if we can have a $800 drop for the complete calendar version of the MO2, don't care whether it's in-line or older.
cincin
Agree, if i can buy it for half the price and because it happens to be last season or so that is great! I think most of us probably dont really care very much about last iteration of a watch but more about its style, qualty, and accuracy. For $1,299 + tax + shipping I can get the AN MO2 in the above link, a Steinhart Ocean One Black (no VAT due to last years EU regulation including shipping from Germany), and the Orient Trooper.
Wow. That is a sharp watch. Funds low this time of year, but need to see if I can make this happen
