Citizen Campanola, custom made ...just for you

Citizen Campanola
If you cannot find a watch that truly matches your taste, you might want to look into getting a build-to-order watch from Citizen’s Campanola line. Available at the Tobu Department store in Ikebukuro, Tokyo and the Daimaru store in Shinsaibashi, Osaka, this unique watch line is highly customizable. Using a special computer, shoppers build a virtual 3D model of their ideal watch by selecting from 12 types of watch faces, four types of outer rings, 32 varieties of hands, and seven options for bands, adding up to a total of 10,752 possible variations. When everything is satisfactory, the order is placed, and the finished watch is delivered in around one month. Prices range from 336,000 yen to 357,000 depending on the options chosen.

Is all about options, the more the better in my book....aside from that, 4G's and change is not too bad for a custom made Campanola.

If you really think about it, this should be an option for any watch in the 4 figure and above range.

Couldn't agree more. Is Campanola the only watchmaker that does this in the rarified world of >$4000 USD watches? If so, then I'm very surprised; after all, we can order automobiles with everything made to our liking, along with business wear, home decor, and even non-watch jewelry. I seem to recall Rolex offering this service, but am not absolutely sure... alien

There was an article in a watch rag mag last year that described the custom watch programs that are in existence. If memory serves, I remember several high end brands that have the option available to special clientele, Vacheron comes to mind.
