Following up on the last review, here's another watch that doesn't use traditional hands and indicators to tell the time. Using rotating discs instead of hands is actually nothing new, but when I first laid eyes on this 'German Inspired' watch from Prince Gera, I was immediately entranced, a bit confused, but overall extremely interested.Read More
In terms of modern and complicated high-end Chinese watch brands, Ebohr is definitely topping the list.

When I was touring the Rossini factory a few weeks ago, a few watches stood out from among the others. While most of the Rossini watches are designed (and rather well) by their in-house designers, they did partner with a team of Swiss designers for a few watches in their most recent collection.

Since I started this little project I've met some awesome people and been able to wear some watches that would normally go right over my head. Rarely do I have the opportunity to sit down and really enjoy the beauty and the craftsmanship that goes into creating something as elegant as a Koncise watch.Read More
Stopped by a gallery / watch & clock repair / meetup place for watch people this week and had the chance to get up close and personal with some beautiful and historic movements.
Here are a few of the more visually stunning movements with engravings that stood out.Read More
