It is basically an A-1 Auto (silver case) with a prototype dial made by 3dc.ing.

But the case used here is actually one of the A-1 Auto prototypes! So on the case back the engraving reads "A-1 PT. mkII" meaning "A-1 Prototype Mark 2"! And this one has the "A" logo printed on the case back crystal (the A-1 Auto production edition doesn't have that!)!

The case and the bracelet is patinaed, rather rough looking (well this one was used and tested as the prototype so). 

Because I personally modded this, and I am not a confident modder, plus the "patina" on the case and the bracelet, the price is rather low compared to other complete watches.


  • Dial: "Eyes-of-the-Beholder" prototype dial by 3dc.ing made in Germany!
  • Assembly: Assembled in Helsinki, Finland!
  • Movement: NH36 (so there is a "ghost position")
  • Bracelet: Unbranded metal bracelet, but with quick release, for quick bracelet/strap changing action! It's size would fit for 17 cm to maybe 18 cm wrist. It also comes with a previously-never-sold prototype metal endlink which would extend the bracelet/strap size.
  • It also comes with a standard A-1 Auto straps!
  • Package: It will be shipped in the normal A-1 Auto package
Here is the image of the full set.

1-Year Manufacturing Defects Warranty

I have been wearing one of the functioning prototypes for almost 6 months. So far, it's functioned with no problems, and I am confident that it would for at least the next 6 months.

The reason I made sure that it's specifically 1-Year warranty for "Manufacturing Defects" is that I believe that most of the people who have never utilized the warranty of a product don't realize that the warranty only covers Manufacturing Defects. Some watch brands offer a longer warranty, such as 5 years or 10 years—but by then, how would you know that your broken watch suffered a manufacturing defect, or normal wear-and-tear? And would you ever be able to convince the brand's customer service that it was indeed a manufacturing defect?

Their warranty doesn't cover wear-and-tear, or user error, and neither does this warranty. But I do think it is important to clarify that it is a warrant for manufacturing defects, instead of just issuing that it is a vaguely worded "warranty" which sounds like something that might cover something more than manufacturing defects. And 1 year is enough time to warrant manufacturing defects.
