Pride.

Hi gang...
Since I had a sneak peek last week, I wanted to wait to let
you all drool over these incredible photos for awhile before posting.
All I can say is, I had such an incredible sense of pride when I saw them
and I was so happy to see that the old school of American watch making
is still alive. I can't wait to have one of these beauties on my wrist!
Big thanks to John and Dennis for bringing this fine company to our Forum
for all to enjoy! :thumbup:

Just noticed this today (there are still a few forums I haven't checked out yet) and it blew me away. Thank you,John, and thank you Roland G. Murphy for the tour. Hard to believe that was once a bank except for that huge honkin' vault. It looks like the NAWCC is my next target for a summer vacation.

+1 from me! John, another great viewing experience. I believe I read on Rene's site that RGM has recreated a likeness of a couple of vintage Hamilton's for him...

Thanks for the tour. Absolutely stunning watches. :drool::drool:I will own one someday-just not anytime soon. I especially like the Signature Series with the modified Hamilton movement. Nice to see someone carrying on the American watchmaking tradition. :thumbup1::thumbup1:

I admire their guilloche work, but their "completely in house designed and produced" caliber 801 has an awful lot of similarities to an eta 6497. Or maybe I'm wrong but they have the same mainplate, escape bridge, winding bridge, and wheel layout on both dial side and bridge side. To me it's a 6497 with a new train bridge and click. Hardly a new design.

I still like to believe I'll own an RGM some day. We can't wait to see pics of it after it arrives.

Very nice! Congrats a little early! I can not wait for the unveiling! I have admired RGM for awhile now and am planning a road trip to visit their shop.
Hah! Me either! One of the nice things is that since they're basically making your watch for you, you can specify it however you'd like. You'll just have to pay for anything beyond the "default." So, you can get a custom engraving, or special case materials, barrel motor, etc. But you'll have to pay for it...
