The Time Bum has posted the first hands on review of The Metropolitan, and we're pretty happy with it!
Some of our favourite excerpts:
"...striking though the dial may be, I think the Metropolitan’s real strength is its cushion-shaped case. It measures 44mm wide and just a touch over 51mm long. Most striking is thickness, just a scant 10.5mm from sapphire crystal to sapphire cashback, which makes it appear almost pancake flat."
We were really adamant on not sacrificing the slimness of the case for a cheaper movement, so are really pleased it is being appreciated here. A super slim swiss movement would have been two to three times the cost of Miyota, too much for a first entry to bear.
Had we gone with a thicker case and cheaper swiss movement, we'd have more of a crowd pleaser on our hands... but we know that once people have The Metropolitan on their wrist, they'll appreciate the case and the decisions that have been made here.
