Independents: Agree

Every watch needs to be evaluated individually. Gauthier’s finishing is definitely a larger part of the package than for other watches. But Gauthier shines also in movement architecture and case design. He’s one of the more talented case designers out there in my opinion, albeit classical in style.

Independents: Movement finishing is one (small) component I look at

Although I own all of the Loupe Systems from when such things were more important to me haha

Independents: Case design is very much overlooked

Especially among the modern day independent watchmakers. Too much emphasis on movement finishing these days, in my opinion.

Independents: Exactly.

They borne of childish imagination, in the best possible way.

Independents: A very high quality coating

They may be the only ones who have ever done this. The way the case reflects the light is mesmerizing

Independents: The case designs of Urwerk are my favorite part of their offerings

My 202 in black platinum is the strangest watch I own but the case finishing and complexity of design is executed at the very highest level.
