it reminds me something...

But I think it's accidental. ...  

As it was with Franck Muller...

When Richard Mille launched is brand... Wasn't expecting this comparaison as I don't see similarities there but we have all our biases, don't we ? If we are following your comment, could we then conclude that Richard Mille mixed a Franck Muller and a Roya...  

What's your bias?

 By: piccolochimico (aka dsgalaxy1) : February 11th, 2024-12:47
Do you own/ work/have any interest in this brand? Just guessing, silent for 12 years (last time talking about RM, accidentally) and now here you are. We can pretend to be either naive or blind, to each his own.

I find really weird answering this kind of questions. I am not having any biases, as a fan of beautiful things, I am interested by new brands and visions: hence my recent post of Lederer CIC or a couple of years ago Richard Mille. You know time flies... T... 

Could you compare a McLaren and a Pagani ?

I wouldn't but why not

Omega sea master did the shape in the 70’s and then a small brand (Brew Watches) also used it more recently imo

I guess the first Tonneau shape was Cartier

And afraid that it will turn on the infinite debate as the 'chicken & egg".

That angular look with soft edges

Was a theme in 70’s design. A number of brands did it. There were varying degrees of arcing and bulging the basic form that resulted

I quite like this period

Patek Philippe were also doing bold designs

I think it was generally under appreciated and perhaps the dawn of the quartz movement completely overshadowed what was going on in terms of design and really the introduction of color to a degree that really hadn’t been seen before. I think it also usher... 

Exactly !

Generally speaking, we need more cases which are not round.

 By: Jay (Eire) : February 11th, 2024-15:12
So on that basis alone I’m interested to see this. Unfortunately, due to the success of RM over the last decade or so, any brand that comes to market with a case remotely similar or pitched in a similar way, will draw comparison and potentially negative t... 

A difficult task indeed.

 By: daniel_coste : February 11th, 2024-15:54
Thanks for your constructive comment and not biting my wrist as someone else did You're absolutely right: any tonneau case is related to Richard Mille, usually by lack of historical knowledge. Franck Muller popularised it a lot in the 90s, then came Richa... 

This case actually looks nothing like an RM...OR a Franck Mueller.

If anything it has some similarities to the Patek posted recently by Ivan5...but even then they are distant cousins at best. ...  

Reminds me of Subey Schaldenbrand

Looking forward in seeing the final result ...
