This watch comes with a moving personal story. The first of a run of 200 'Mark 1' models that are keenly being awaited by their future owners, it was actually a present from Sydney watchmaker Nicholas Hacko to his wife: "It is a very special watch for her, and she is parting with it in both sadness and joy that the money will go to a good cause." The watch is in mint condition with a new kangaroo strap fitted. The Mark 1 is assembled from the components of 11 part manufacturers who make components based on Hacko's design drawings. Once components are received, the MK1 will be completely assembled in the Nicholas Hacko Castlereagh Street workshop. Accordingly, the dial is proudly signed "Assembled in Australia". The caseback is also signed '67 Castlereagh St' a proud statement of the place where your watch was born and took its first breath. Again, each MK1 will be completely assembled by Nicholas Hacko, leaving only minor tasks to assistants (strap and buckle installation, water resistance testing, timekeeping checking, packaging, etc). The Nicholas Hacko Mark 1 is a Limited Edition production of 200 pieces, with this being the first piece from the production…
