A Time For Transparency

And I have to admit I quite enjoy reading your thoughts. One thing is sure, as I happen to make parts by hands, no one can do a pinion without a motor (you can use a steam engine if you want, but still). So IMHO any watchmaker out here that makes his part

A Time For Transparency

And looking at where the original insta post comes from, I belive it was not targeted for "Brands" but rather for "watchmakers" (Cramain, Dufour, Coyon, AdC etc). I guess this was intended to shed some light on what is "handmade" and what is not. A lot of

Perfection!

The retirement gift was a straight fight between a RW Smith and a Voutilainen. Dufour was only producing the Simplicity to very special customers and the closest I ever got to Philippe was when I managed to get his autograph at the SIHH! Christian Klings

Perfection!

I guess I like simple watches anyway so any two or three handed watch tends to sway it for me. I believe Roger does arguably one of the most refined and best made three handed watch in the market today. Yes it is an English finish rather than a Swiss and

Credor Eichi II

My first Credor. The Eichi I was released in 2014 in platinum, but at 35 mm in diameter, I was not tempted as I found the watch too small. So when Credor released the 39mm Eichi II, I made the plunge. Similar to the first generation, the dial is made of p

What do you look for in independent brands?

Independent watchmaking rhymes with either HH or in-house production. Let’s say you buy a movement, then design a case, hands and dial, what sets that apart from all of the kickstarter microbrands? You’d be financially independent (i.e not part of a group

What do you look for in independent brands?

For me, I love independent brands but my taste are more peculiar. So, when I look at an independent watch, I look for uniqueness. So while I prefer to have a independent watch make everything and thus create an exceptional unique piece of art (like Bovet

What do you look for in independent brands?

I have never seen so many independent brands as there are currently in today's market which is great for collectors but not so good for the independents. For me, I am looking at the opportunity cost - what other watch I can buy for the same amount of mone
