It's been a couple of months I'm wearing my Meridian and I have to admit - it brings pleasure. Winding the watch is my everyday ritual for a good start of the day and it really bonds you with the timepiece.
The bracelet was replaced by the company (it was super hard to resize it myself (see: with the local horologist) but the new one works great - it's incredibly comfortable with the micro adjustment feature (I believe that every bracelet should feature such a great micro adjustment, it really boosts the experience).
The only downside I find (which didn't prohibit me from buying Meridian in the first place) was the polished sides of the case. It really makes no sense (unless you like the way it looks - I don't) - it just catches every finger print or scratch it can.
The service was great - I got my bracelet replaced eventually. The sad surprise was that I had to pay ca. 50 USD of customs fees, which doesn't feel super-fair given circumstances.
All in all, it's a fantastic watch, can't wait to see more from Vero.
Just unboxed my watch, so this is a first impression review. The detail, from the wrapping to the leather pouch is extremely pleasing. That said, I bought the watch not the pouch…and all I can say there is wow. Fits like a glove, if a glove were a watch. Size is perfect. Admittedly, I have small wrists 6.75” on a hot day, but it is so right on. Thank you, Vero!
I have to say that the watch looks amazing on the wrist in both the leather strap or bracelet. It is a breeze to swap to the other strap if you want to switch it up. The leather case that the watch came in is a beaut. Got several compliments first day wearing it.

Wind It Up
There is an appreciation one gets from the tactile response of the Meridian Manual Wind's Sellita SW-210-01 mechanical movement.
The exhibition caseback lets you take a closer look at the movement plates coated in black rhodium, along with iridescent blued screws, and snail finished ratchet wheels.
Bracelet + Strap
Each Meridian watch comes with an articulated stainless steel bracelet and a genuine leather strap. Both strap options have built in spring bars for a quick and easy strap swap.
The bracelet can be custom sized before shipping to ensure it fits your wrist upon arrival. Built in to the push button clasp are micro adjustments (up to 1/2").
