Watchfinder & Co. presents: If you decided to build a watch, a really good one with some kind of complication, where every last piece—up to and including the smallest screw—was custom-made just for it, how much would it cost? Thousands? Tens of thousands? It’s hard to say at a guess, but this much is true: the Richard Mille RM011, a flyback chronograph in rose gold, costs £100,000. Let’s find out why.

After many requests from the good Gentry to check out Undone watches, today I finally take a look and review the appropriately named "Urban" vintage inspired chronograph.
This is no ordinary watch, or watch brand for that matter! With a totally new approach to affordable watches, they give their buyers the option to customise almost everything via their fun and easy to use website. No matter if you want something like an Omega Speedmaster, perhaps a classic 60s Heuer, or the Rolex Daytona, all the styles are there to choose from, best of all, you can add your own special touch too.
You can create your own design, and in this video I try it out for myself, as well as taking a look at an already pre-designed model called The Mercury, from their Mystique line.
I also discuss how this brand came to be and the man behind this unique approach to bespoke watches. Before Undone, this level of customization was only available through Seiko modification or super high end luxury brands.
