Isotope Goutte d’Eau Compressor Diver Watch

Isotope Goutte d’Eau Compressor Diver Watch

Review
We start the year with a new contributor and here is his first article…. Oh yes, welcome Giuseppe ;-) We already talked about their really cool Rider Jumping Hours, but here we will present something different ! Today I would like to present you a really cool Diver watch from Isotope, The Goutte d'Eau!  This watch has a nice concept history and a design approach that is quite timeless. In fact, The Goutte d’Eau shape takes inspiration from the design of the 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS Coupé, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cars ever built. This watch has also another interesting feature, a bespoke and exclusive stainless steel bracelet with a discreet extension clasp mechanism that allows you to quickly change the bracelet size to wear over a…

Interview
These last days I had the chance to speak with Yong Keong Lim, Founder of Feynman Timekeepers. You know that I really really like his job so I wanted to know more about him and about his brand.

I started serious watch collecting in 2010. Prior to that I had only a few watches which were gifts from my family. The interest actually grew when I first saw the Rolex Air King which my dad had. I started searching for information of the Air King and I ended up joining SGROC (Singapore Rolex Owners Club) forum. From…

The really special Atowak Windows

Review
Something new today… Our friend Michał Dziubiński from Katowice in Poland gives us his thoughts about one of his new watches… And let's say that it's a really nice one. So yes, he wanted to present us a new microbrand from HK named Atowak. Let's go Michał it's your turn ;-) I'm really happy because I have the chance to be with the ATOWAK Windows from already some weeks and I have to say that love this watch! I saw this piece on Kickstarter and I directly fell in love with it. They have 2 models: Window and Window Pro. I like both but for me the version Pro is harder to read time, despite this, it looks awesome and I wanted it so much! I have chosen the blue…

Vario Empire Emerald Green Watch

Vario Empire Emerald Green Watch

Review
Some weeks ago I found out the Vario White Tuxedo on Facebook and I directly wanted to try it. The style of this piece is all what I like. Small size, bi-color dial, guilloché finishing... Well, what you want more? Well, unfortunately it was already sold out but, I had the chance to receive at my office the Empire Emerald Green.It’s already a chance because the watch is really really nicely made.In green, with its small strap fits better my girlfriend’s wrist than mine, but I have to admit that I really love it… and for many reasons. Vario is the brainchild of Ivan Chua, a graphic designer from Singapore. We know him from the super cool straps that he produce under his Vario brand, and now with these really…

The WOW effect of the Kaal Multiverse

The WOW effect of the Kaal Multiverse

Review
These last days I had the chance to try the Kaal Multiverse and honestly it’s a stunner. If you want a conversation piece at reasonable price, then this one is for you. You can find the different variations of the Multiverse collection on their website at the Super Early Bird price of 380$ (then it will be retail at $699). It’s honestly a good deal compared what you already have on the market… I talk of course of « special design pieces » only. Each of the three watches presented on the Kickstarter camapign are representative of one of the three main aspects of our solar system: the Earth, its Moon and our Sun (or better named Earth for Gaea, Sun for Sol, and Moon for Artemis).  Alvin Lew, co-owner of the brand,…

Stop everything, here’s the Feynman Cove

Stop everything, here’s the Feynman Cove

Review
I think that the title of this article says it all… The Feynman Cove is just a bomb. Some months ago I wrote a review about the One Eclipse and I was already speechless about the quality and the beauty of this piece. But now, the Cove… oh guys this watch is a stunner.I received the piece some weeks ago and I can't take it off my wrist anymore. It’s probably one of best watches I had the chance to try this year. The watch that Yong Keong Lim sent me is the Cove Vintage. At first I would prefer the Founder’s Edition (green) or the Eclypse (blue) because I really like colorful watches. But when I opened the parcel and saw this deep black watch, I immediately fell in…

So let's jump on the interview :-) Could you tell us a bit about you and about your story with watches? Hi Jonathan, thanks for inviting me to this interview. I was born in China but at a young age moved to the UK for a number of years before coming to Ireland where I grew up.

My first watch that I researched and bought was a Sea-Gull M171s (and you’ll see my username on the WatchUSeek forums still refers to that…

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…

Interview Clément Meynier – Founder of Depancel Watches

Interview
As a lover of beautiful mechanics, I kept an eye on a young French brand which offers watches inspired by cars. I had the chance to interview Clément Meynier who is the founder of Depancel Watches. Hi Clément could you tell us a bit about you and about your story with watches? Hello Jonathan, and thank you for this interview! Originally, I trained as an engineer and worked in a research laboratory in Geneva, called the CERN. I am from the Jura region, near the Swiss border, and I have always been passionate about fine watchmaking and curious to understand how mechanical watches really work. Then, I enrolled at a training center in Geneva to learn watchmaking. It was supposed to be a simple hobby to satisfy my curiosity, but…

Interview Adriaan Trampe – Eza Watches

Interview
Today we have the chance to share with you an interview of Adriaan Trampe (Co-Founder of Eza Watches). I hope you will like it and that the latter will make you want to discover a little more about this brand. - Could you tell us a bit about you and about your story with watches? My interest for watches started during high school. I was mostly interested in the mechanical movement itself. Also the romantic pictures of watchmakers in the Swiss mountains working on their watches while the snow was falling outside captured my imagination. We didn’t have much of this in The Netherlands (where I come from) but still, the passion for watchmaking grew. I wasn’t a very good student in high school. Always passing to the next year…
