Avatar
foversta
Much has been said and written about the Navitimer 8 collection since its presentation earlier this year. It is to date the most visible embodiment of the strategic orientations of the new management team of Breitling, with Georges Kern at its head. The fact that many speak about this collection is a first win for this team: Breitling is back on the front of the stage with a renewed ambition and increased visibility. The path however is not strewn with rose petals...Story

If only my watch could collect Air Miles. I picked-up this Chronometre Royal as a non-runner, which is a situation I generally recommend others avoid. But I knew a secret about the watch and it was just too much to resist. So it crossed the Atlantic for the first time and arrived into my waiting hands...Story

Quick BaselWorld: Vortic Watch - (cleverly) reviving those wonderful old American Railroad Grade Pocket Watches

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
The Vortic Watch Company , based in Fort Collins, Colorado, (USA) is a rather unusual watch company: created to preserve and put again in action as many as possible of the numerous, excellently made American pocket watches, or better: their movements. In doing so, they utilise vintage technology (watch movements) and high-tech production methods such as 3D printing (cases). During Baselworld I had the opportunity to sit down with Vortic CEO R.-T. Custler to get a first-hand introduction into the company, .....Story
