Brief impressions of three independent watchmakers

Date: Feb 02, 2010,09:11 AM -  (view entire thread)

It has often been debated, on this forum and elsewhere, what exactly independent watchmaking means. I still don’t know what it means. But I do know that understanding a timepiece from an independent watchmaker – whatever that term signifies – requires understanding the person behind it. There is always a person behind it; the product is wrapped in the personality of the maker....


But the most valuable experience I had over that week was the interaction I had with various independent watchmakers, Maximilian Busser and Peter Speake-Marin, both of their eponymously named brands, and Guillaume Tetu, co-founder of Hautlence. Though I’ve met them before on several occasions, I rarely had the chance to talk to them at length over the course of the week. It was a privilege.
