Default Prospecting for Watches

All,

In my never ending online excursions for watches, I got to thinking
about those brands we may have heard of, but never checked out - or
maybe some micros that you just plain forgot about that may deserve
a re-visit. Add something to this thread that you believe others
may find interesting. Doesn't necessarily have to be obscure or
high $$$ - just different, cool, previously forgotten - or may maybe all of the above?

To get us started:

https://martenero.com
https://www.mercerwatch.com
https://vorticwatches.com
https://www.scurfawatches.com

Here's a sort of aggregate collection of some micros as well at Fratello:

Prospecting huh?
Do you have a burro carring a frying pan, coffee beans and a canteen?
Bought from yer local General Store? Right outta the film "Treasure of
the Sierra Madres"?

Never saw that but the list I posted was from another similar thread on this site. Clearly there is quite a bit of microbrand information available here

That's true, as I have just re-discovered to my surprise. I think it was Friedrich Nietzsche that said "the advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time".
