The Madison is a watch unlike any other. A tribute to the history of watches and a celebration of Mercer's fifth anniversary as a brand, it takes traditional styling and mixes it with some exceptional and unexpected components. First off, the Madison features real glass enamel dials, a detail rarely seen at the price point. As such, the dials are exceptionally clean and sharp in either pure, virgin white, or deep, chasmic black. Both offset by a gray sub-seconds dial at six, cleverly placed on a lower level.
Second, and perhaps even more unexpected, is the use of new old stock (NOS) vintage movements from France Ebauches. A conglomerate of several French movement manufactures established in 1965, France Ebauches later went on to become part of Glashütte Original. The FE 233.,68 caliber inside of the Madison is an elegant manual wound movement with a sub-seconds at six. It has 15-jewels, a, a ferquency at 18,000 bph and a power reserve of about 40hrs. Though uncommon today, it was a workhorse movement in its time.
Lastly, you'll find a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, always a welcome detail, Ostrich skin straps, for a touch of decadence, clean and precice finishing, and special, blue enamel filled stamped case-backs. All in all, the Madison is a remarkable watch and truly one befitting of Mercer's anniversary. For the discerning collector, the Mercer Madison is a truly unique offering. Limited to 300 units.
