It's been a long hesitation on the dial choice, but finally settled on the blue one. Reason being to be difficult to define the exact color online, even though watching GalvinWatch website or youtube channel or several reviews online. First of all, very easy ordering process, even for customs clearance through DHL (though they add their own fee on top of the applicable official taxes, which makes customs taxes higher than the 20% applicable in France). Flawless delivery, with a well-appreciated personal message. The watch by itself: All the watches I own are there because they have an history or a technical / cosmetic specificity. Having a Loimu just made sense: courageous decision to open its own brand, beautiful design and colors for a very balanced price. Great finishing with details not systematic on other watches (owning 15 currently from "basic" seiko 5, Lip, Tissot Powermatic, Perrelet, Tag Heuer...). Strap easy to adapt to the right size (though proposing to add the necessary tools for a litlle premium could be welcome for the ones who do not already own the right tools ?). Lightweight on the wrist, the 38mm is good having a small wrist. Based on my other watches, a 39mm is better, but that's a purely selfish comment. Lume less effective to my expectations, and compared to what appeared on the reviews , but in some way it saves distraction by the hands (that remain pure white in natural light) from the blue dial. I will check if there is any difference with today's ordered Loimu Polar :) The dial is very lisible, its color evolves from almost black to blue with violet flares. Some reviews showed gold logo and hands (?) , I would be interested in seeing these in more details ;) or proposed for ordering ! Looking forward to have in my hands the loimu polar to compare the dial and the lume intensity. The hands shape go very well with the overall design, all very delicate, seconds hand well balanced visually. The watch has been worn several times, noticed a +4 seconds deviation per day maximum, which is very good (remains within COSC boundaries). Thank you Susan for setting up each mechanism individually. That is also a pleasant difference in choosing between different brands and adds a personal touch and customer satisfaction/ consideration. Minor lowside though: the 19mm strap dimension which prevented the use of my existing stock of 18mm and 20mm of straps. Had to buy dedicated ones (from NATO blue and mustard to suede or plain leather in different brown shades). Very satisfied, with this minor lowsides on low bright lume and 19mm strap. Best evidence ever : I just went for a second Galvin watch with the Loimu Polar ! Should it be of interest, some ways of improving the service: - Propose bundle by adding leather strap and/or tropic - Propose meetings with owners in certain locations ? - Propose to customize the watches, adding engraving for example. Once again, thank you for the watch, for the service and for the attention brought to your customers. Looking forward to seeing the future development of the brand.
A quality timepiece from a microbrand that provides excellent customer service! Owner Susan Galvin is a pleasure to deal with! I highly recommend their watches.
Nimensä mukainen, hieno kello! Kiitos Susan! :-)
I am delighted with my purchase, this Loimu watch has a very nice design, beautiful details and beautiful finishes. On the other hand, the leather strap with a folding clasp is not practical to mount and wear. fast and neat delivery
