Thread: Tiger-Concept Big Crown Watch Review

    Tiger-Concept Big Crown Watch Review

    Here is my review for my new Tiger-Concept Big Crown Watch, 7924 Sub Style Version 3 with DG2813 automatic movement.

    Ok, well as for the quality it's no Steinhart, I'd say it compares with Parnis for build quality.It has a full stainless steel case and back, the finish is very neat and tidy, no rough corners, highly polished case back and sides. The tops of the lugs are brushed and it has drilled through lugs.
    The bezel lets it down a little and has no clicks and turns either direction and is a little loose The glass looks to be reflective, not sure if there is any AR coatings but has a nice dome which seems to keep the reflections quite small.
    The gold snowflake hands and markers are all lumed and look nice and neat, I'm not sure how long that will last though. And finally the dial, I've just had my eye glass out to have a close look and it's printed well, all the text and minute markers are clear, the lume is quite flat so maybe that is printed too? forgot to mention the case is 38mm across, 42 with the screw in crown, 20mm lugs.
    For 76 it's a nice watch, 38mm is bordering on what I feel comfortable wearing but worth the risk as it looks so nice also comes supplied with 3 zulu 4 ring straps, blue, black and grey!

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Thanks, bookmarked! I really love the bigcrowns, and the chance for me owning an orignal is slim to none....
    I think I did see them on ebay a few years ago, but cannot find a trace.

    Thanks for the review, it's a neat little package, any comments on the movement? Accuracy, rotor noise, etc. TIA
