Because a Beautiful Watch Shouldn't Cost a Fortune

The more I look at what Auguste Reymond is offering and the price points at which they are operating, I have to say that this might be the next wave for aspiring watch collectors living within their means!

A singularly beautiful study of a moonphase with day, date and month all elegantly displayed on a striking blue dial.  They make a lot of beautiful time keepers, but this one?  This one I WANT!

  1. I agree with you. There are many Brands making good "normal" watches at affordable prices, but they haven't the appeal of a Big Brand well known over the world because of many reasons:power of marketing, power of advertisement and finally people to want to show more their money power than true love for watches. From another point of view if you invest in research we have to divide expenses on all products (and sometimes they are not many).
