What a collection! My favorite would have to be the Classic Artisan Sport Tortoise. Everything about htis watch exudes class and sophistication from the antique tortoise shell to the golden plumed hands and the staybrite case to the gorgeous crown with cabochon Onyx. Even better is the movement that Martin has breathed new life into, the authentic FHF 96. With so many watches being mass produced and machined, it is very inspiring to see that Martin still continues to craft by hand. Martin's watches are wearable works of art from a visionary.

Ruthenium Antique - The hands that are immaculately detailed are set against a gorgeous dial that does not overpower the clear centerpiece of this work of art - those hands. Pure beauty in its subtlety.

I really like divers so my fav has to be the Illum Aqua (water sports watch) ref. 5010. Of course the biggest draw for me is the dial, made up of enamel and non-radioactive substance which they call the Email Lumineuse. I'm a lume junky so the thought of the dial being able to glow for 35 hours after being exposed to light for only 10 minutes is amazing. a 3mm sapphire crystal and a 42mm case rated at 200m just rounds it off.

I absolutely LOVE the Tage Olsen Classic Silver watch in your Technical Timepiece collection. It brings me back to the vintage watches of the 50's and 60's and I am very keen on those watches (I have a couple of those vintage models). Yet it is a new timepiece and will last for years. Great looking watch!

I really can't pick a favorite. The No 1 watch is very cool with the rotating discs, the Ruthenium Sport has a great dial with the unique coloring and great hands and lume positions/shapes, the Illum Aqua pictured above in #10 is so clean and futuristic while still being easy to read. All of them look very well built and finished nicely.

No brainer: Dive Tec 500. It's been in my sig forever.
Font Graphic design Logo Graphics Clock


Beautiful and unique Staybrite 1.4435 NCu case with special laser-cut tactile edge on the bezel that is both slightly raw looking while also being quite refined. People throw stones at this one because of the big crown and bezel, but they obviously did not take the time to complete proper research, as this can be removed for a "dressier" appearance. To top is all off, the dial is covered in email lumeinescence, which is the best in the business, hands down.

I'd proudly own and wear this one for all those reasons and more. Silicone strap and transparent caseback options for me please.

I love this one here:

Tage Olsen Classic Ref. 7010. Simple yet elegant dress watch with a throwback handwind movement. Subdial at 6 makes it look sophisticated. Love the dauphine hands and the sapphire crystal that completes the look. A real looker!

My choice is Tage Olsen Classic



Its a classic dress watch. What strikes me most about this watch is very well balanced dial. The undersized seconds secondary dial at 6 o clock balances the company name at 12 o clock in a very harmonious way. Also the way the outer rim of dial slopes back in old school nice :)

I tried looking for the watch that's displayed on your entry page to your website, however I'm not sure which series it belongs to.



All of your timepieces are Exquisitely well done and are works of art that a person is able to wear on their wrist, but the reason why I love this particular watch is it reminds me of my friend "Sugarfoot".



If I owned this timepiece (or even better, if I could afford to send you a photo of her so you could paint a rendition of her profile on my watch), it would always be with me.

Thanks for the opportunity!
