I ordered the watch the first time it was offered by MD. Then the drop was cancelled due to issues with delivery. I was really disappointed. When the watch came back on MD, I ordered it again and no problem this time. Delivery was quite fast. But if you live in Canada like me, you have to pay ridiculously high duty fees. 48$ (CAN) in my case. That's a lot of extra money.
As the for the watch itself, I really like it. I don't mind the red stiching on the strap, but I'll probably change it enventually. This is my first moonphase and the instructions for setting the time and the moonphase are pretty straightforward and well explained. The month and day subdials are easy to read, but the numbers on the day subdial are really, really small. But that's the price to get a reasonably sized watch, I guess! Also, the pictures on MD didn't show it well, but the watch face has a guilloché pattern which gives it a classy look (see pics).


All and all, excluding the duty fees, I'm quite happy with this purchase.

Is the Carnot brand Canadian?
Last time, after months of delay with no update, the brand never delivered. Massdrop refunded me but it was disappointing
this is ugly bro.
i could care less about the strap.. never look at the strap that comes with the watch when i buy one as i can and generally do replace them.. but the face is lacking while searching for that minimalist look. should of done the 1 2.5 5 on the face for seconds..
case does not belong with this face.
the red stitching on strap was the least of the poor choices made here
Red stitching on brown leather with rose gold? Holy crap someone failed design school.
What's with that red stitch, I wondering as well. I don't see anything on their site that looks like that.. Anyone?
What's with the red stitching on the brown strap? Looks kitschy.
Dont recognise the brand . some mushroom brand aka micro brand?

This appears to be their only model. Couldn't find any information about where they're located, where the product is made, etc.
A little confused here. The narrative speaks of an automatic movement, but the specifications list it as a quartz movement. Those two are mutually exclusive of one another. Automatic means it's spring actuated movement and automatically winds with the motion of your wrist and/or a winding crown. Quartz means that it runs on electricity from a watch battery, using the pulsations of a quartz crystal to keep time. Perhaps someone here can resolve this contradiction.

Yeah, they screwed that up. It's a quartz.

" If moonphase watches are uncommon, moonphase calendar watches are unicorns in the world of watches—especially if we’re talking about automatic movements. So, to get one, typically you’ve gotta spring for quartz. The Carnot Riviera, a 40-millimeter quartz dress watch..."

I read that differently. I think what they mean to say is that moonphase calendars are either automatic and expensive, or quartz and inexpensive. I would've written this copy differently, but they're not tricking people into thinking it's an automatic.

Thanks for the update -- wow, sounds like someone in customs liked the watches...

And I really wanted this one too!!!

Very disappointed I didn't get this watch
An Update would be Appreciated and Professional. One e-mail saying delayed is not enough.
I emailed MD last week and they said they would update us when it ships?????
Any update on the shipping? Can someone from MassDrop or Carnot respond? When MD says you can cancel due to the late shipping, it makes me think this might be a long term thing...

Still nothing? Can we get an update, please?
Has anyone received any watch so far?

I`ve asked for a refund and bought instead a beautiful Thomas Earnshaw https://www.thomas-earnshaw.com/collections/moon-phase/products/es-8031-03-maskelyne that looks great and the finishing is awsome for the money (found it with 100 usd)

As good as that looks I'm not very big on white dial watches, the one I was getting from this drop was a black dial, I decided to use the money that I was given back since the drop was cancelled on https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0044XDZII/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1.
If they get their stuff together and make another drop I might get one as I really wanted it
