We get many, many people writing in about this issue. The argument for a new vs pre-owned Rolex is very much like that of buying a car. With careful research a used car can give you years of faithful service at a fraction of the cost of the same vehicle bought brand new, the difference is, a well looked after brand new Rolex watch is much more likely to hold its value, while the car takes a big hit in depreciation the moment it rolls off the forecourt, up to 11%.

In a world of monotonous mass production, Manu Propria founder and owner Martin Pauli still makes his high quality pens and watches entirely by hand. In the case of the new Susutake Bamboo Pen he even cultivated and selected the bamboo in his parent’s garden in Switzerland. The process is elaborate and time consuming.
