Independents: A Tremendous Achievement

I am the proud owner of two Habring^2 watches and have always been impressed with their combination of practicality, chronometry, and individuality.

Horological Meandering: Profit Margins Wide on Watches, Narrow on Service

We hear so many stories about apparently-poor service from very high-end brands.

Independents: Why Independents Are So Wonderful!

I love both versions of the dial. Both of them show so much richness and character. It is also wonderful that you have the option of using two dials with the same watch. I can see why this watch would get so much wrist time. Regards, Jon

Independents: Excellent craft!

What I love about these watches is that they represent a hand-made craft that doesn't try to be anybody else's work. The aesthetic is personal to Mr. Kikuno. The labor-intensive process of creating the dials is one that no businessman would ever choose, but artists have compulsions sometimes. Among
