These are the first pictures of the Pinion Revival 1969. Rather than the computer renderings we have seen this far, these are pictures of the actual watches. The watch features a Valjoux 7734 movement, a NOS (new old stock) movement. In the case of this watch, they were originally manufactured in 1969. A LE of 100 pieces, the watch follows the notion of practicality starting with the case. 43mm in diameter and polished, it does the job and does it well. The dial continues this trend with a simplistic design that allows for quick and easy reading. With the design of the watch, it can be worn in most any situation. That's the definition of practical, right? The leather strap completes the look of the watch with a texture that is simple and reminds me of an old leather jacket (which would make sense). Although they do not specify the source it doesn't change anything about the appearance. The prices are as follows (at the current exchange rates):
UK: £4,950 (including VAT)
On the higher end, but if 100 people are willing to buy it, then it's not overpriced. Regardless, it's another strong offering from Pinion that retains some DNA from older models such as the Axis. More information can be found here. They will ship late 2014 and into early 2015.
