Interview Léopoldo Celi – Founder of Fugue Watches

Interview
A few weeks ago we had the chance to sit down and speak with Léopoldo Celi, Founder of Fugue Watches. Now, let's jump into the story of this young brand... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNeGy-2_NcE Could you tell us a bit about you and about your story with watches? My love affair with watches started 12 years ago with a very special gift from my parents, an Omega Speedmaster. This gift came with a condition: I had to find the watch myself aftermarket with a maximum budget of 1000€ which was, even for the time, very challenging. After I succeeded finding this gem the hunt changed me forever. I became a vintage watches collector (on a budget) and was instantly drawn to the creativity and soul of vintage pieces. I later became interested in…

Watch I love: Hamilton FLINTRIDGE

Watch I love: Hamilton FLINTRIDGE

News
I have to admit that my first love from Hamilton was the PAN EUROP but for today I want to present, from the American Classic Collection, the Flintridge which is seriously appealing to me. This really interesting watch was inspired from the design perspective of the 1930s Flintridge. This one was originally created as a sports timepiece but honestly you can wear it whenever you want as it's a very classy timepiece. Available for both genders, this lovely design will make a big impression. Well, I'm impressed... The catalogue price is 1075 Euro and it's certainly someting really intersting. The only problem is the availability since it is a new model and not all retailers will have it in their stores.... But more than that - Both version are limited to 999 pieces.…

The new classic – Straton Syncro

The new classic – Straton Syncro

Uncategorized
I see, more and more in the last years, a comeback of the classic watches designs. I could not be happier to have the opportunity to choose between a wide range of new, modern ideas and reiterated classic designs, most of them iconic, especially when these come with an affordable price tag. A modern watch with a classic design comes from the Straton Watch Co., a company that already had two successful campaigns on Kickstarter and made a new one which raised more than 250,000CHF with a watch named Straton Syncro. Following a classic chronograph design, inspired from the successful names from the 70’s as the Seiko Speed-Timer, Bulova Deep Sea or Breitling TransOcean Blue Dial, this watch has the advantages of the modern technique and a warm, vintage look.…
