Currently, we only have about 10 pieces available. This was done before the summer holidays in Germany. And we had a launch party in our boutique yesterday. And so far a few has been sold. So we have a couple more we can send NOW(to the few lucky owners)!
But then again - this is just a quartz movement. So it's debatable about the price...
The Sparta 1 Mini comes with two foam bricks. They are in two sizes depending on the size of your watch strap, you'll know which one to use. For me, I used the smaller brick. You can easily squeeze the brick into a closed watch strap or bracelet or close the watch over the brick. The foam material of the brick won't scratch your watches. Placing the brick in the winding unit is easy and it fits in there snugly. I don't worry about it slipping out, nor does it stick inside stubbornly. More expensive unit "house" watches more. This helps protect them from dust and from coming in contact with other things that might damage or cosmetically harm your watch. The Sparta 1 Mini has watch more or less exposed. Again, this is only a problem in certain situations and for select highly expensive watches. If you have a watch that you don't want collecting much dust or needs to be utterly protected, there are closed unit watch winders available - but realize that a "housing" just gives you one more thing between you and your watch possibly making it less convenient to use your watch winder, and watch winders are all about convenience. Also, remember that the same type of winding (via the RotorWind system) is being increasinly used in more and more Orbita watch winders, even the very expensive winders that accomodate many watches - it is just that good of a system.Read more ›
