thanks again for taking the time to have all of these wonderful photos. I really love your reviews because of all of the photos you take with the detailed description. best of boths world!

I am in support for these types of watches because I personally believe that watches, especially mechanical watches, have moved away from a functional piece of equipment to more of an art form/artistic form of expression for artist or watchmakers. This is, I think, the way the watch industry is moving forward and how it is still remaining prevalent. As such, inline with this thought, I really like how this artist creates a new form of expression in watchmaking but I do not exactly like it. Just like in the art industry, there are those who find new forms of expression that are more controversial and require a long time of concentration before deciding if one likes it or not (cough cough Mark Rothko/colour field abstract expressionism ,cough cough Robert Rauschenberg) and this is, to me, one of these pieces of art. I personally have always favored a slight twist/combination of old and new styles, like De Bethune, but have generally shied away from very avant garde watches like modern Roger Dubuis, Urwerks, Audemars Piguet (royal oak) etc..  Now for the disclaimer wink this is all just my personal opinion and it is ........

Hands on review of the Genus GNS 1

What I appreciate above all in independent watchmaking is its ability to develop the most ambitious projects that explore new ways to display the time. I will not tell you stories: there is nothing more legible and understandable than the two good old han...  

By the time I figured out what time it is

I would be VERY late to whatever I am supposed to be on time for.

I like to consider myself as open-minded...

Thx for this great review.

I’m quite open to new concepts so this is interesting. I don’t think you can read the time on this watch though. But who cares? Dirk

Needs a big step up in finishing plus a dial so we can read the time.

The taiji ("yin-yang") layout is awesome, why obfuscate that?

From the prospective of the movement, dial and price, but the decoration on the central bridge is very disappointing.

Cool concept, interesting.

so with that said, this watch (to my eyes) can be summed up in a single word… junk! Why do I say that, and without any reservation whatsoever? The price is an utter joke. The movement used and finishing is so far removed from the price being demanded that...
