Saw a beautiful trio of Romain Gauthier (HMS Prestige), Debethune (DB28 Black Matte), and Bovet (42)!

So while in London, I went to two fantastic watch shops, one was William and Son, the other was Aspery. The staff at both were extremely nice and allowed me to try on many beautiful watches even though they knew I could not afford them. Extremely respectf

The importance of a well-designed screw

I’m in a small neighborhood sushi bar sitting across the wooden table from two of the watch industry’s movers and shaker. The first – Tim Jackson from Passion Fine Jewelry – is one of the finest dealers for several impressive independent watchmakers. The

Always sad to say goodbye

Hoarding is keeping everything you’ve ever bought, never selling or getting rid of anything. Collecting is a managable array of items which can be subject to being sold as and when circumstances or desires dictate. You know me, never one to sit on the fen

Long read – an analysis of my collection, and some thoughts on brands

Extremely interesting read that evidently a lot of us will appreciate; something I suspected when I spotted your collection. I'd think an Independent would be a good foray for you as a next buy as I think a lot of the elements which you're indicating you

Long read – an analysis of my collection, and some thoughts on brands

Friends, First a warning: this is a long read and I will not feel bad if you skip it altogether! Hopefully, some may find it interesting. I got the idea from one of you, who recently, in a post about my new RO asked if I could expand on my collection. I s

Is anyone planning on going to the Watchtime Los Angeles show? KV, FPJ, ALS, Romain Gauthier, and others will be there.

Just found out about this show from ABTW... Has anyone gone to the New York one? I really want to see KV 28ti and the new De Bethune diver... It's on May 3-4. Also it looks like Saturday tickets are only $10 with the code ABTW... () Full brand list pulled

Which row would you prefer??

I can’t raise any enthusiasm whatsoever for the Platona, even though the colour scheme is quite agreeable. Likewise, the 5131 WT, and the Openwork RO – so they’d all go. You could almagamate the 5168 and 5968 into a 5164, adding the GP Laureato Ceramic sk

IMHO these two are stunning gorgeous

but here, at least for me it does not work. There are other independent watchmakers out there that can do that kind of job better than KV. A matter of an too clever client who absolutely wanted to have something that others haven't? I am sad seeing Kari e

Review of the Romain Gauthier Logical One

Hello everyone, I have never written a watch review so I’m excited to do my first one on the Romain Gauthier Logical One. I have a basic understanding about most complications in watchmaking knowing some are game changers so nuanced it’s really as much ab
