THE RETURN OF GUINAND

Postby koimaster » August 13th 2017, 10:44am

Guinand is back!

For the unaware, believe me when I say this is most welcome news. With a catalog of superbly built watches boasting interesting complications at fair price points, Guinand thankfully remains one of Germany’s best-kept watchmaking secrets. Guinand also has a connection to someone we here at worn&wound admire–the great Helmut Sinn, who ran Guinand for over a decade after selling his eponymous brand back in 1994. And like Sinn, Guinand’s focus on relatively affordable tool watches makes it a brand to watch. Today, we take a closer look at the Frankfurt-based firm, its storied past, and what will undoubtedly be its exciting future.

I think the Series 31 (the time-only pilot's watch) is quite lovely- besides, while it's only a Unitas, it seems nicely finished, and an indirectly driven sweep second is anything but common in contemporary watches.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Nice to see then back even though I never knew they were here in the first place.
