Exactly and excellent points!
Especially about Philipe Dufour! I thought he handmade his watches? Lolz I did not know about that!

These remind me a lot of Atelier de Chronometrie lol
Nothing wrong against that! I have heard that amoung watch nerds that their reputation has fallen! I appreciate what they are doing but their watches are way to simple for my taste. Having said that, beautiful movement but if I had to pick between LF or R...
The AdC vibes are VERY strong
I don't mind that so much--those are good vibes! But LF does seem to spread themselves AWFULLY thin on the various limited editions...
Revolution has a collab with them.
LF has an issue with distribution and moving stock. These collabs will certainly help, Bc it puts the onus on the retailer (or, in this case, auction house) to do the marketing and pushing and selling
I heard something along those lines and that they had fallen in favour amoung watch collectors for that reason. Again, dont know to much as I dont follow the brand a lot as I am not the biggest fan but i heard scuttlebutt about some major problems/issues ...

I think the same but dont know
We could go into a very long discussion about this as handmade is a very ......complicated term in watch making! I am also curious tho if the handmade title can be given to people like Masahiro Kikuno or other such people (Christai...
They are one of , if not the, best watch journals out there! will def check it out!
That makes sense!!
I think i heard something similar before! thanks for doing the reserach to find out! Now we know for next time!
Collaboration watches are now like pop-up shops....
even brands collab with famous watch blogs starting from Hodxxkxx, Fraxxllx, Time&Txxx, Revxxxxxn, etc. It's all about making money, come on....be nice, everyone wants to have more $ in their bank accounts. In the end, only us, "the collectors", who a...
