Its fair to say Sebastien at Brellum has been busy over the past couple of years since he launched, he never stops in fact, his range of chronometers has grown, he has launched several Limited Edition (LE1, LE2, LE3) models, and whilst all this has been going on he has been working on a completely different ‘3 hand watch’ with a beautiful 5 day, manufacturers movement, The Wyvern.
There is also however a new DLC Duobox available as well, which has taken centre stage within the Pandial collection.
The new Pandial with DLC finish completes this collection wonderfully, and adds another piece too many peoples wish lists. We have only seen this DLC case version before on the LE2 Ghost, now long sold out.
The Wyvern has now officially launched and its a beautiful 3 hand watch.
Available in two models currently with the movement you can read about here , and as they say a picture says a thousand words.
The Wyvern is priced at CHF 3’990 excluding taxes with 23 units per Limited Edition available worldwide.

I can not really think of any other brand that is quite like Brellum, I am sure they must be out there, but non spring to mind. Sebastien is a one man band, does not sell in shops, and really explores the depths a model can be taken too before moving onto something else.
I am referring to the 14 Duobox models on regular release, and 3 Limited edition models over 18 months before we see a long requested 3 hand model ‘The Wyvern’.
When the Wyvern story broke a couple of weeks ago by me by mistake (sorry Sebastien), there was a lot of talk about the movement, in-house vs manufacturer, the roots of the Wyvern’s movement. Personally I found the Nah saying slightly distasteful as it removes the focus of what Sebastien has accomplished with the BR-18 movement.
The truth of the matter is that I can list of big brands that use of the shelf movements and just rename them. Sebastien has gone a lot further than this and his watches are ‘Objet D’Art’ and extremely good value for money in a watch collectors world.
