I think they are really great. Especially to get it from the horse’s mouth makes it all so much more interesting. You can tell he is not a salesman but talking with the perspective of a creating person. I think he did very well.

Talking to the folks at the Boutique the Watch has become a bit of a darling, and we’ve seen that even here on our forum. There is a lot of interest in the 48, especially the treated Titanium case, so much so it seems the Boutique cannot keep up with dema... 

I heard Paris has more than 6 months waiting list now

I also think many people see it as a first flirt with the brand. Similar to wat the CB was in the beginning. It is relatively affordable and accessible. You don’t get a truly mechanical watch, but you get something very unique and interesting in terms of ...

I find it to be a very versatile watch and fun to wear. Had to wait about 6 months to get one but I'm glad I did.

Congratulations on getting one

I really like it a lot. The case is just so comfortable and light.

Thank you

I too like it a lot. An interesting watch that you just don't have to worry about.
