Atticus review

I only found out about Atticus a month or so ago but I was pretty drawn to them after seeing one for sale on reddit.  From browsing their website they have several different dials all based around a nice looking 38mm case.

My particular model, Icarus date, has a similar look to a Sinn 556 which was part of the draw for me.   It is reasonably thin at 11mm, has a lug to lug of 46mm, and has 100m of water resistance.

The watch features a miyota 9015 with a 6 o'clock date.   I generally like the movement and the rotor noise isn't too bad unless you really touch your wrist and hold it up to your ear. I will say I wouldn't mind if the crown was a bit larger though it is a screw down so that's a nice touch.

Lume on this watch is quite legible and I like the lumed model name. While the second hand could be brighter that doesn't really matter to me.

The bracelet has a 20mm to 16mm taper and features a locking clasp with 6 micro adjustment points.  It starts out with a female end link h bracelet and transitions to an oyster style halfway to the clasp.  The bracelet wears really nicely and while I haven't tried the watch on another strap I can tell it'll look nice on several different styles. 

All in all I'm really happy with this watch and I'm considering getting another watch from Atticus.

On a side note, I'm mildly afraid of getting this watch too close to the sun...

Buying a watch on Reddit....now I have heard it all! But in seriousness, as someone who wants a Sinn but may not be able to pay the Sinn price tag, this seems like a great option. Great pick-up!

I got this one directly from Rusty at Atticus.  ThoughI've bought, sold, and won watches on reddit.

Excellent review. I have a couple of their watches. A Pharos and a Pelion. Some of my favorites. Rusty absolutely nailed them.
