21st century edition watches

Since 1992


After the break

When I suspended my watchmaking activities to focus on other creative work back in 2008,
I had in mind to only produce a new watch line if irresistible ideas would present themselves.
Such new ideas actually arose as early as two and a half years ago but I chose to take the time to see if these ideas would in fact become irresistible.
As it turned out, they did, and I had to realise them. Many trials, prototypes and refinements later I am happy that we finalised this colourful but distinguished line of watches. Shades of Grey.
