Blancier makes handmade watches to order. You go on their cool flash builder and you select a case, movement, face, and strap. Your piece is then hand-assembled and engraved. I have one and it’s quite striking. Well, now they have a pilot’s model with large, luminous numbers and a bright hands. It comes in 42mm or monstrous 55mm models. This model looks great on a leather strap in steel and costs about $1,000, depending on your choice of movement and case. This stuff is truly one-of-a-kind, so it makes that whole “a grand for a watch” thing go down a bit easier.
