The new and improved Freiheit. Built with additional security, replacing the double domed mineral glass with domed sapphire glass as used on our other watches. The watch still sits at a respectable thickness and still empowers the principles of our original design.

This is my first automatic watch and I love it. The design is smart and minimalist and, personally, I think that the black option is the best. It's exactly as I expected, except that the black dial is not so black as in the pictures. That's because it has a very sutile texture that actually works very well in the design.
A good thing for me is that this watch work with all kinds of clothes. I usually wear sport or casual clothes and this watch is perfect for them. It's in a medium term between a very elegant and sofisticated watch and a more "normal/casual" one.
On the other hand, the strap is very comfortable and the "windows" in the back is pretty cool. You can see part of the pieces working.
The worst things for me were:
1- It was stopped in the customs and I had to pay high taxes and do some bureaucracy management. It's not the seller's fault. When I asked him for some extra information, James replied very fast (thank yoi, James).
2- I'm not sure if my unit has any issue, but the battery doesn't last 42 hours. I work in home, so every night the watch stops. But when I have a more "normal" day, having some walking moments, etc, the watch just lasts about 20 or 24 hours. I suppose that maybe the movement needs some maintenance. It's not a big issue at all, since I like the process of set the time, but probably it will need some adjustments from a watchmaker soon.
On the other hand, the watch gets ahead about 5 seconds a day.
As I said, these are small issues. The watch is nice, it uses nice materials and the design is awesome. I'm very happy with it and I recommend it.
It's a nice watch at an interesting price point, but the finish is not what I hoped. What kind of ruins it is the lack of reflective coating on the cristal. Let's just say I have a number of pieces at the same price point with better finish and better calibers. But so far it seems to work just fine...
This watch is beautiful and the price is on point.
For the most part I think this watch punches way above it's weight with only 2 minor gripes.
I have medium sized wrists and that being said most watches I purchase have a lot of strap / bracelet to spare. This one, not so much. The strap seems of good quality and the signed buckle is nice, but this is a surprisingly short strap. Large wrists beware.
There are also a couple of black marks on the visible rotar of the movement making it look less pleasing to the eye. Case polishing, sapphire crystal and dial are beautiful. Four stars! Well worth the $200 USD price tag.
I received the watch in time and I love it. It works just as it should, is readable in the dark and looks just stunning. Even came with 2 different coloured leather straps. Love it and would buy again.
