The New Romantics

You will notice a new section on the Tempus Fugit site - The New Romantics

It will start getting populated over the next few days, and is meant to be an additional resource for smaller, independent brands to discuss, share, promote and yes, even sell their watches.  

Now, unlike my more well-heeled (somewhat slipperier) colleagues who "painstakingly curate" "exclusive collections", the New Romantics section is something (I hope) a little more straight-forward and will not rely so heavily upon slippery language.

These are brands that are actually owned by actual people who are actually working on unique ideas.  These will be brands at several price points, and while some are more expensive than others, the concept is not about "exclusivity" or any other douchy hyperbole that some other blogs-now-retailers might spew. 

In many cases, the brands will have direct links that you, the customer can go through to make your purchase directly from the brand.  In some other instances, you will can also be directly connected to the authorized retail partner.  

Most importantly, I will be working hand in hand with the brands to assist with after service, etc.

It will be a part of Tempus Fugit, but it has it's own little home.  And this will be a "curation free" zone.  The simple criteria are:
1.  I have personally met the owners, and are the type of people I'd enjoy having a beer with (and most I have).
2.  I have personally tried the watch, strap, etc. and feel that it is a good product at a fair price.
3.  The product, whatever it may be, is interesting to me, and I hope it will be to you as well.

As mentioned before, I do work with some brands as a consultant and that will be clearly disclosed and all of those brands will be clearly identified.
