Doin research on them they only built 99 watches in 1997 their first year in business. In 2005 only 3000. How crazy that they actually use a lit candle to singe and seal the ends of their leather straps together and they literally hand carve and scoop their cases out of blocks of steel rather than stamp them.

The strap makers are a family whos parents are like in their 70's and still involved in making the straps from what I read. I had no idea watches were still made this way.....I guess that puts into perspective how they justify the pricing on their pieces.....INVICTA/RENATO Hand made ones must go thru the same process, no??? LOL Click the link to the article below the pic, pretty cool read

That's a really cool read, thanks! It's nice when you can be passionate for a watch company that has some real history. That's one thing I love about collecting watches is the history behind them.

~Cheers
