Presently VicenTerra began conveyance of the primary membership request batch.
If it wasn’t for web-based media, the brand VicenTerra would likely not have existed and the new GMT-3 would not be in excess of a thought and a few drawings. Up until half a month prior, all press data and the site were accessible in French just, so I do trust spread the word in English currently too (again).
After this first bunch of 100 pieces made for membership just purchasers (at the uncommon cost of 5,000 CHF) the GMT-3 will be accessible through vendors for 15,000 CHF. Furthermore, surmise what… after the GMT-3 there will be more models coming from VicenTerra! Vincent previously educated me concerning thoughts he has for other watches, again with captivating complications. Later more about that, presently the GMT-3…
The GMT-3 highlights an enormous three-dimensional globe that turns around one hub experiencing the two shafts. The pivoting globe can be seen from the dial side, from the back and through a port-opening in the side of the case!
