Pleasure is Mine (",)

Nicolas , when one is enthusiastic, the passion is out. To like independents is to understand them. I progress from curiosity to interest to like to understand and finally to pursue more learning about it. It is challenging, really. For example the KV with the blue dial has movement with twice the speed of the KV with the sunburst dial (not salmon or orange or brown hee hee). 36000 rpm versus 18000 rpm. He is testing it and planning to enter it into next year competition. I admire him for keeping it up and wanting to improve more than his present achievement. Cheers and thanks for telling me your interest about KV.

Nicolas , to be in the room with the presence of one independent watchmaker is an overwhelming contentment for me but to be with three of them? I was seeing stars... KV is a very humble master, simple, sweet and humorous too if one manage to spend time wi...

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

Note that the Antiqua has remained unchanged for over 10 years

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...
