From The Trenches - Vario 1918 Trench Watch

Just One More Watch

With 580+ orders already in the bag, it just goes to show that there is a big demand for somethign other than dive watches. Ivan at Vario has long ploughed his own furrow, and if the success of the 1918 is anything to go by, he'll be a fixture on the micro scene for a long time to come. I have issues with the movement and the length (or lack thereof) of the Bund strap, but the enamel dial looks amazing and $250USD is a very fair price, I think. Cheers, Jody

I have several trench watches, and the OP pays homage to this style in quite a relevant way.
Great thread.

Sweet Venturo, Buzz!
yeah i got that BUZZ VENTURO GRUPO GAMMA BLACK DIAL...killer homage 1941 ROLLIE...just thinking on VENTURO today...as much as DEEP BLUE BLUE FRIDAY $199 T100 NH 35 is killer...on the DEEP BLUE my crown stem is kinda rough gotta put a teensy squirt of lube on it...but IN CONTRAST THE VENTURO SCREW DOWN CROWN STEM IS LIKE VIRGIN ICE RINK SMOOTH AS BABY BUTT... i luv it... my coupon on the VENTURO was so much money as BELLA DINO says i got it at a stupid price-

i love GRUPO GAMMA for the quality FIT FINISH MACHINING ( in contrast the DEEP BLUE is solid & gr8 value but like a hunk of SS with T100 tubes strapped on ) ...but all the other models are big for me TWSS

as for the VARIO I really luv the FACE-DIAL...but...weak lume- awkward crown at 4.25 dictated by movement - meh to me movement- strap decisions not a BUNDT fanboy- and MISREAD THE KS CONFLATED SINGAPORE DOLLARS 350 with USD $250 so i continued chaste meditation in the NO BUY ZEN
