Finally got my Neptune!

I鈥檝e been thinking and plotting to pick up a Lorier Neptune IV for a while for two reasons. First, I am coveting a Black Bay 58, especially after trying one on at my AD, and thought a Neptune might deflect that need at least for a while. Second, this is a gorgeous watch from an interesting microbrand that only seems to improve.

This watch comes to me second hand from a seller on Reddit for the grand price of $290. The fit and finish is excellent. Bracelet feels a little light but has microadjust so that鈥檚 a wash.

If you like gilt Lorier has done a beautiful job with the dial. The hesalite crystal has lovely vintage distortion. My husband鈥檚 beater is a seiko 5 so I am already friends with polywatch and don鈥檛 mind some crystal polishing now and then.

Not sure if it will appease my BB yen yet but it鈥檚 definitely going to get a ton of wrist time. If I had paid over retail for it I think it would have been worth every penny.

Congratulations on a beautiful watch!

In all honesty, I think it looks better than the BB. And I鈥檓 not a Tudor hater. Quite the opposite.

You got a great deal! Congrats!

Very nice watch and great price. I had the same BB hunger and ended up buying an NTH Barracuda with the snowflake hands. Found it on Reddit also! Like the gilt as well.

I like the clean round minimalistic 60s style. The perfect pair with this would be a Timex Marlin 34mm dress watch.

You will not be disappointed. I love my Neptune
