Boscoe, I know you got one so I wanted to hear it from you. I am REALLY thinking about pulling the trigger on the silvertone one with the Roman numerals. Whats your overall impressions and do you STILL have it? Thanks in advance.

I still own my SWI LE. It's a great watch with a wonderful bracelet, amazing fit and finish and a very handsomely decorated movement. I have the "later" version with the Arabic numbers. The dial work is incredible.
I was watching that TV show last night and decided the fit and finish on the SWI LE actually rivals 3K watches I own. Very nicely done. Great CS.
I recommend it.

I went back to the old forum to find my initial impressions, but gave up after about 10 minutes of hunting.

Here are some photos. Hope this helps:

Thanks Boscoe! I ordered the SWI LE in Silvertone with the ROMAN numerals since I am more of a Roman numeral type of guy...:thumbup1:


I figured it was a nice overall package with winder and strap. The watch looks VERY solid and looks VERY expensive. So I assuming its still in your rotation and its a lifetime keeper, right? Thanks again Boscoe! :thumbup:

By the way, thanks for the pics unfortunately I cannot see them from my work computer due to filters!!! I will see them tonite though! Thanks again and the watch looks awesome!!!

Love that watch! If I had the funds right now, I'd be all over the brown one. Nice thing is that as a limited addition, you'll have a very unique timepiece from a niche brand. Very little chance of running into someone else with the exact same watch.:thumbup1:

BTW, what is the MSRP of these? They look nice.
They say its between $2499 to $2999 and by the looks of it, I believe it...:thumbup1: LIOR the owner SWI, said the watch was sourced from different high end manufacturers to produce this elegant, high end and great F & F watch. Cant wait to FINALLY get it!!:D

Boscoe, finally saw your pics!! Awesome watch and superb dial!! You gotta LOVE that bracelet!!!:thumbup:

I'm very impressed with your comments on this watch and I'm starting to consider getting one. Is there any difference betweent the roman numeral and arabic version other than the dial? They seem to be the same as far as case, movement, xtra band and winder. Looks like S...C is the only place that includes the extras. Any advice?

@seandavid, I've only seen these sold on 2 sites and as you mentioned, only one has the extras and multiple payments.
The 2 versions are identical except for the dial. They're all supposed to be LEs so this gives them latitude to produce more. I think the LE stuff in this case is BS but I love the watch and the movement.
