What’s So Special About Independent Watchmakers?

What’s So Special About Independent Watchmakers?

Postby Racer-X » May 23rd 2017, 1:52pm

by Łukasz Doskocz "Whenever I think about a watch made by an independent watchmaker, a certain recollection comes to mind – one that could explain my passion (and for that matter, most likely the passion of the entire Quill & Pad team) for timepieces created by masters with diminutive production but gargantuan horological expertise.

This particular story involves a watch brand, a trip to Switzerland, and what is normally a very casual thing: lunch.

I was on one of the many watch trips to Switzerland most serious watch journalists take to remain current in the field, and between visiting two manufactures our charming host took us for lunch."

In answer to the last question in the article:
I'll take the burger every time.

I'd like to order a pizza to go with no anchovies.
No anchovies? --- you've got the wrong man. I spell my name "Danger".

Like that but cat-F. Sklodowska
