In a thread a few days back, the question of Chotovelli and Figli watches came up. These watches are sold by Ernie www.watchuseek.com. If you don't recognize the name or website, Ernie and WUS are a Authorized Welder dealer and a great horology forum.
There has been a great deal of chatter on the boards about the best watch under $1000 and under $500. The piece of choice under $500 seems to be the Nixon. The styling isn't really my cup of tea, so I thought the Chotovelli might be interesting to check out.
So I sent an email to my friend Ernie Romers and asked him about the quality of the pieces, as they are fairly inexpensive and realitively unknown.
Much to my surprise Ernie offered to ship me a sample for me to check out.
So I promised everyone a review of the watch, and here it is.
