After a year of timeout …. finally a new one

May 13, 2022,19:36 PM

The current watchmarket somewhat made me loose my interest in purchasing new watches (with the exception of one or two independents I‘m still following). So I didn‘t buy a new watch in a year, something that hasn‘t happened before in my 11 years of collecting watches. But then I found this. Don‘t have a desk watch yet and I‘m really happy about adding this MB&F and L‘epee Destination Moon to my home. Finally something really new to me.

I know how you feel and I absolutely agree with you on that. The watch market is getting out of control imho .

Love it! Desk clocks are great fun! MB&F Sherman says "Hi" as he's working on another desk clock. ...

Year for year. Every year i buy one new watch. My reason is not the crazy situation the world faces, but i decided for an odd reason to do so. I have no unlimited resources and buying one watch gives me the time to dig my latest watch and to desire my nex...

Horofatigue. Didn’t know there’s even a word for that, haha. Should’ve known. I‘m kinda tired of going off the beaten path actually.

Been doing that for years and 2-3 years after I got into a new brand those brands took off as well. Even LF can‘t be considered off the beaten path anymore, lol. And tbh, I‘m not that much into vintage. I got one, that‘s from my birth year and I‘m happy t... 

Which 2 independents?

Cool MB&F!

Not gonna tell ;-)

I‘ll just say, that it‘s two brands, which seem to honour so far, that I bought from them while they were still easily available and that both brands offer very good and friendly service, delivering what I consider to be the independent experience.

Very much agree.

Both MB&F and L'Epee 1839 are very honorable companies. As you say, very much an independent experience as they truly care and are very passionate too. 👍
