Did Furlan Marri and Auro Montanari create the best sub three thousand dollar Swiss flyback chronograph ever?

We think so.

Yes, it’s a bold statement, but we think this limited edition collaboration with Furlan Marri and watch collecting legend Auro Montanari not only looks amazing, but also punches way above its weight!

 

Here are five reasons why:

1. Furlan Marri is one of the hottest small independent watch brands around. In 2021, it won the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) Horological Revelation Prize and Revolution magazine’s award for Best Design.

2. These chronographs have the perfect retro-modern design created in collaboration with watch collecting legend Auro Montanari. Check out the amazing multi-level dials with applied Roman numerals, and the unique, curved leaf-shaped hands. Look at the olive-shaped pushers used on the blue and taupe gray models and the famous Borgel-style round “Tasti Tondi” pushers on the salmon version. It’s the details that make these three watches so sublime.

3. It’s the right size. We see a lot of mechanical chronographs, but somehow most brands make them too big. These watches are exactly the right dimension at 38mm in diameter and just 13.2mm in thickness and sit perfectly on all wrists.

4. The quality of the watches is awesome! Check out the domed sapphire crystals. The vertical brushing on the dial is perfect. All hands are CNC-machined and NOT stamped for incredible three-dimensional volume. The concave bezel is mirror polished by hand. And, yes the watches are made in Switzerland.

5. It’s Furlan Marri’s first-ever mechanical chronograph. But more than that, it’s the first watch in the world to use Sellita’s manual wind, column wheel flyback chronograph movement. This movement features a special bridge and a beautiful rose gold finish exclusive to Furlan Marri. There’s even a micro-engraving of Furlan Marri’s motto, “Crafted with care, designed for details,” around the column wheel. At CHF 2,750, it’s the best value Swiss mechanical flyback chronograph on the market.
