M 3 Prototype

Before purchasing please note the PROS & CONS of buying prototypes.

CONS

  • Prototypes do not go through the same level of Quality Control the Full Production Watches go through - so they may or may not have imperfections that show up with a macro camera lens like Gary from I Like Watches pointed out in his Review of the M3.

PROS

Additional Information | The process of finding the right manufacture was a very long process but in the end after getting proposals from 60+ manufactures I was happy to land with the one we have now since 2021. My wife is from Germany so them having a TÜV Rheinland certification was the final cherry on top. They continue to be a pleasure to work with and help keep the pushing the boundaries of quality per dollar performance in each M series.
