It must have been with such wonderful watches and fine company.

thank you for a great report.

Agree with you on the trio its amazing. I was very surprised once I tried it on, didnt get it beforehand. Incredible piece. Karis stuff is amazing as well. In my eyes I think he is a match for Dufour. I know not everyone agrees. And he is an incredible nice and modest person as well.


kind regards

You're absolutely right. I have to confess that I don't know a lot of things about Indepedants, and this is a Pity! Thanks for your answer. Best. Nicolas

And for such a heavily over the horizon watch, not over the top, but way off the GPS system......the design has stood the test of age, The Antiqia continues to have a wait list, and Vianney has recently designed into the perpetual a new leverage system th...
