Lol, when I saw this I actually thought the watch guys would be positive. Well, it's not being eviscerated so it can't be that bad. You are the toughest crowd to please. If I could, I would probably go for it. A grand for a Swiss Chrono seems pretty good to me and it has that look like every other dive watch, playing it safe. I'm content with my Freelancer and Certina. I want to sell my Oris Artellier small seconds pointer date though, never wear it.

I like the Daytona Newman looks, not the price of the Rolex, would prefer automatic, not hand wind like the original or cheap Alpha copies: what do these cost? Apparently they stopped making this watch a few years back and used examples sell for over the $2900 price tag to almost three times; thought of a one of the best made homage watches available. But it does have a 37 mm diameter, rather small for this style of watch.

"Reminiscent of the New York City skyline, the Gevril Wall Street Collection" I don't get it, can someone please explain similarity between this watch design and NYC skyline/ Wall Street?

No I still don't get it!!!
View the watch with the crown at the 12 position. Picture the sky behind it. Now imagine that your watch is a fisheye lens through which you are viewing the NYC skyline and that's why it's round looking. For good measure, you should also try to lick your elbow.

Gevril is a good brand overall, but instead of this ugly model, I'd buy a Ball Marvelight, a Ball Fireman Clou de Paris, a Fireman Enterprise, or a Fireman Victory! Such gorgeous pieces! (for approximately the same price or a little bit more)

Similar to Revue Thommen. Fine enough watches but they don't offer anything new or special. They are old brands with quite interesting history but unfortunately only connection to present is the name. Someone has bought these trademarks and only purpose is to make money with the name by offering stock model valjoux aparatuses as an entry level premium watch with premium price. If one wants something similar it's better to look for example Sinn, Longines or Tissot watches. Many of them have the same caliber, are about the same price, hold value much better if that is important and they use similar ETA caliber (eta has bought valjoux) - compared to Gevril. How ever every one of above mentioned companies have made modifications to this valjoux caliber. So they have not taken short cuts with their designs and on my opinion they have quite a lot of interesting watches in their catalogues. Tissot, longines and movement manufacturer ETA are within the same organization.
If you count slapping a rotor on the back as customization, then sure those companies you mentioned modify their watches. Sinn does modify certain 7750s to have a running chrono minute hand counter vs a sub dial or even a column wheel vs a clutch engagement. Longine does the same with certain models as well. Tissot modifies the 2824 by dropping the beat rate from 4hz to 3hz to get a longer power reserve. Newer versions may also have a silicon balance. @BKnutti Sorry but no, Swiss built limited editions do not tend to go up in value, and obviously this Gerbil didn’t as it’s being sold for 20% of MSRP. If you’re concerned with resale value, your options are specific stainless steel sports models from Rolex, Audemars, or Patek. There is always the outlier like Snoopy, but most Omegas are money losers as well. Ditto for Breitling, Panerai, JLC, and Cartier. If you buy this watch at $1k, you’re getting a decent value for the money, a watch that should be serviceable by any competent watchmaker, but you’ll never see that $1k again.

OMG! A good looking watch on MD?! Am I on the right site? Can't say I know much about the brand, or that I'm in the market for thousand-dollar watch just now (or a $5,500 watch), but I do like the design, especially in the grey color-way--and damn it, haven't we been starved for good looking watches around her long enough?! However, the fact that this one is packing a "better movement" is nice, but if what my good buddy @Watchyoutalkingabout is correct regarding a $500 servicing cost (and I have no reason to doubt him) that could take some of the fun out the equation--which brings up a good point about higher-end watches in general: if they have to be serviced to keep on being high-end watches (and I assume they do) what's so good about high-end watches anyway? Then again, depending on one's age, that servicing might become the obligation of one's heirs, in which case, one might just buy the watch anyway and say screw it to the servicing concerns.

I do check Nordstrom, currently this Gevril is $1399 usd. so Drop has a good price. They claim a 13 mm thickness as well!!

Yes , I guess it is all relative, if you make $300 usd. plus per year then maybe you can justify it; I sure don't. Maybe I should buy one of those Alpha Daytona homage watches!! Just joking, rather buy a Mido, or something in the same price bracket. I don't mind these out of fashion brand watches like Gevril or Revue Thommen ;they are probably better value than Rolex and company.You never know what's coming from Drop next.

It’s an established fact that all the high rollers on Wall Street wear Gerbils nowadays, and you know you want to be like them. Also $5000+ for a Valjoux 7750-powered watch is an absolute steal. I would wait for the price to reach that before pulling the trigger to ensure you’re being fair to the manufacturer.

I'd much rather buy a ball fireman racer for $895 over this watch! Js!

I have a couple of Ball watches and think they're excellent. That said, a comparison with a watch that has a chronograph complication is not apples to apples.

Jacques Gevril was an up-and-coming watch and clockmaker in 1758 when he accompanied his colleague Pierre Jaquet-Droz on a trip to Madrid. There, the men presented a selection of complex musical automata to King Ferdinand VI. The king was so impressed he bought every piece. Jaquet-Droz returned home the following year but Gevril remained in Spain to fortify his reputation as a master watchmaker and was appointed Royal Watchmaker by the king. Gevril lived in Spain for many years thereafter, refining his craft and producing watches for the Crown. Gevril Renaissance In the 1990s a Swiss distributor acquired rights to the Gevril name, eventually launching a series of Gevril watches at the Basel Fair in 1995. But the brand’s true renaissance occurred in 2001 when a Swiss businessman with a passion for watches, purchased the Gevril brand. He understood the significance of the Gevril name and wanted to see it prosper in the world of contemporary watchmaking. He was determined to return the brand to its previous brilliance. The factory – Gevril Horlogerie – was kept in Switzerland, where the company continued to assemble approximately 6,000 strictly Swiss made mechanical watches each year, primarily limited editions in either 18 kt. gold or stainless steel. Gevril headquarters, however, was moved to New York. Gevril is actually a good watch. Listed on the Watch Rankings as an entry level Luxury Swiss Watch.
