How does the movement finishing rate on the Atelier de Chronometrie watches?

The types of finishes I try to look for first on a movement are the most difficult ones. I think these usually fall into three categories, but someone correct me if I'm wrong: 1. Free-hand engraving 2. Well-rounded anglage on the bridges, with bonus point

Any thoughts on this Urban Jurgensen

I have always been in awe of the finishing at Moritz Grossmann which is said to be better than that of Lange, which is high praise indeed. Arguably it offers a more finely finished movement than the Urban Jurgensen but it is like saying that a Lange offer

Grossmann v Grossmann

This year I have been impressed with two watches launched by the under rated Glashutte brand, Moritz Grossmann. Both are 41mm in diameter and share a similar case but that is as far as the similarities go. The Hamatic launched a couple of months ago in Mo

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
