Books from Basel

Written by the former Executive Director of Richemont Group this book presents in lavish detail the history of JLC. One of my favorite watch companies, I have had my eye on this tome for a few years now. Given its size and weight I had to bide my time before pulling the trigger. This book is more than just a history of JLC describing the ethos of an amazing organization. The production value and information surpassed my expectations. You get the impression that this book was written by someone that cared deeply for the company, its history and its future.

Sea Fighter Sold Out

Back to work….

a little worse for wear because of the jet lag but the best I have felt after a trip overseas.  Baselworld was interesting and productive. In short though not a lot of new watches launched from my perspective but still a few goods ones were announced. More on that later.

Maxmadco Pen

Maxmadco Pen

What can I say about the Maxmadco pen? It’s a pen. However it may possibly be the last pen you ever own. Clean, modern, disarmingly simple, the pen design is the product of years of thought and consideration. The result is that in your hand the pen feels like you could use it to anchor… Read More

Kingston pre-order shipments

near completion. As noted before we still have two pieces (C61 and C52) that won’t be completed until I return from Basel. While that is quite frustrating for myself and the customers involved all of the remaining watches in the Pre-order and the parts kits that were delayed have shipped today. If you did not… Read More
