A quick note to add that we should have the first 10 pieces completed some time next week. Progress should pick up fromĀ  there.

Cie. Bracelet Montre – Strap Store, Paris

Store Front

  I stumbled across this shop while walking through the St. Germain area during our latest layover in Paris. The brainchild of Hady Ouaiss, a local vintage Rolex dealer, Cie. Bracelet Montre specializes in high-end watch straps for customers that might describe themselves as strap collectors rather than watch collectors. This latest venture was just… Read More

2014-05-01: 369 date dialed Nassau, ordering open

We have just posted the new 369 date dialed Nassau in the E-boutique. This watches features a dual plated black/silver dial with a glossy finish like the Kingston.

2014-04-25: Project GMT Date Wheel

We have completed the font for the date wheel and will be finalizing the formal purchase order for the part. There are still some stages left where we will have to go through confirmation of the order and design, after which we will get a sample for confirmation.

“Heartbleed”: Mk II E-boutique/CSP is secure

We have updated our systems where necessary to safeguard your information. The potential for issues such as “Heartbleeed” is one of the reasons that our system does not store any credit card numbers.

2014-04-11: New Update Procedure

2014-04-10: Proj. GMT Design Update

We are still working on the date wheel design. We created a font for the date wheel that alludes to the original date wheel design.

2014-04-10: P300 Design update

The technical drawings are progressing. I have essentially finalized the details of the design. Normally at this point I would, personally, begin creating the 2D technical drawings for the case body. In order to try to save some time I have contracted a company to create a 3D model of the design and the technical… Read More
