Catching Up

It has been a while since I have posted anything, I am sorry if you are a returning visitor and found nothing new. My only excuse is that I was away for a weeks holiday which meant I had a fair bit of catching up to do on my day job.

Whilst I have been absent a couple of interesting articles have come up in the press about British watch brands.

The most recent being Hodinkee’s piece on the relaunched Vertex brand.

Personally I like the look of the watch and the idea of relaunching a family brand is somehow more “authentic” than inventing heritage. Some Hodinkee readers have made less favourable comments. But for the moment Don Cochrane ,the brands’s owner, only has to please 60 people.

Earlier there was an interesting interview wth David Brailsford of Garrick Watches on the Mrwatchmaster blog.

So that is a little catching done. This week I have my first Redbar event which I am looking forward to.
