Horological Meandering: Totally a personal preference...

If you're a collector, there is no optimal number of watches - the size of your collection should always be changing. If you're the sort of person who wants to wear all your watches, there's a reason to choose quality over quantity. I'd say two watches is too few though. Let's say you go to the extr

Horological Meandering: Marketing will make the difference...

One key difference between grandfather clocks and mechanical watches would be the amount of money spent on marketing new mechanical watches. I’ve never seen an ad for a new grandfather clock in my life (that I can recall). Creating social desirability through marketing will keep the mechanical watch

Automotive: Performance Oriented Rolls

Isn’t there a way to convince me that I’d rather waft through traffic? Realistically, this car should be comfort oriented, even if it is dressed up with a performance package. I’ll fall for the performance version every time, but all it tempts from me is uncivil, boorish behaviour.

Independents: How many watches have been conceived as self portraits?

This one seems quite special to me, such a different approach taken to the Joker series. A fun watch yes, but it’s a wholesome joke with a watchmaker’s soul. Much cooler than painting a self portrait on the dial, right? Possibly my favourite Only-Watch of all time. Excellent Instagram promotion as w

Horological Meandering: This is a great bag

Besides being a creative and find object of its time, it’s also an LVMH product sticking it to a competitor in their space. Thanks for sharing and congratulations.

A. Lange & Söhne: The perception is that Lange chose commercial success over artistic integrity

The watch itself is quite solid, but the criticism is an emotional response to a brand, perceived as being “above the frenzy of mass luxury”, releasing a watch designed for mass luxury appeal. Whether fair or not, it is perceived that a conventional bracelet would be more suited to the lug design an

Glashütte Original: Glashutte Original Bracelet Supplier - Shared with Lange?

I've noticed that the new Lange Odysseus has a bracelet with the same style quick-release as my Glashutte Original Pano and the clasp design is very similar to the newer Pano clasp. Does anyone have information on the bracelet and/or clasp supplier? In the photo below, the marking is "Patented BRO".

A. Lange & Söhne: I love the photo!

These are all nice watches in a vacuum, but they are all the same. To me, it echoes a truth. We respect and admire individualism, but most of us find our happiness in community. We want to be ourselves, but we do not want to so unique as to be alone. This is reflected in the watches we choose to col
