When it comes to extravagance and the watch industry, there appear several paths that can be picked. There’s the way of antiquated manual work on tremendously excellent finished developments, and there’s the way of marketing. There anyway another way that I really wasn’t mindful of until I met with Beat Weinmann, very a few years prior. Along with Ludwig Oechslin he made the unbelievable MIH Watch , and later they began Ochs und Junior that adopts their strategy even above and beyond. In today’s Weekly Watch Photo we’ll show you probably the most recent models from Ochs und Junior, which are the ideal instances of their interpretation of luxury.
As our patron Max Reddick so impeccably explained, extravagance doesn’t need to be all gold, sparkle and fabulousness ( read his anecdote about Luxury 2.0 here ). There’s another kind of extravagance that can even component a corroded dial, an untreated metal dial, or a yearly schedule that comprises only 5 sections instead of the 100+ parts utilized in essentially every other yearly schedule. This is likewise a kind of extravagance without a delightful cleaned and satin-finished case, and without faceted hour markers, hand-guilloche dials and greatly finished developments. This is anyway the kind of extravagance that permits each client to pick whether they need a titanium or strong silver case. They can pick any shade of dial, hands, and tie. Also, if that’s sufficiently not, there’s an assortment of medicines that you can browse to get a rusted and in any case patinated dial.
It’s the advantage of decision! Ochs und Junior’s style is crude, no finishing, and complications must be accomplished with as little as potential parts. I for one succumbed to their appeal and own the Two Time Zones, as it’s called now-a-days. At the point when I got it, a few years prior, it was called Due Ore, and it had different dial and hands. A full survey of my ‘old’ Due Ore can be perused here , and soon our patron Robin will do an audit of exactly the same watch now it has been refreshed with another patinated dial.
Last summer we asked a few little indie watch brands to send us some photographs, for us to use in the Weekly Watch Photo. They have just been included many occasions in this arrangement, so enough to appreciate. Anyway here’s Ochs und Junior’s new arrangement of photographs, featuring their most recent models.
