  1. Hi all, I posted some time ago about my curiosity of starting a microbrand and developing a design, mainly around whether quartz or Auto would be the route to follow. I’ve been working on a design for the past few months and have learnt a lot from this about watchmaking in general which if nothing else, I’ve taken enjoyment from. However, I’m now looking into the next stage which is working with a supply partner to understand how costs might stack up and what hurdles I would need to jump though. I would really like to hear from people who have successfully

  4. Exactly why I’m hesitant in trawling through too much so that I don’t lose too focus and enthusiasm too soon! I know it’s all a bit of a long shot and in reality a pipe dream, but I’ll not get any satisfaction from giving up early doors. My thoughts on choosing quartz over automatic to begin with were that the amount of capital needed to raise would be less as a start up due to the product being less expensive (obviously marketing aside). Am I missing something there do you think or is it entirely how people buy into you and your product?
  5. Hi, I’ve been starting to take an interest in micro brands recently and some of the companies which have taken off in the last few years. Being a designer, I’m starting to look into the possibilities of working up a design. I’m just wondering what people thoughts/opinions on whether a quartz or an automatic is the better product to proceed with. brands like MVMT and the Camden watch company seem to have had great success with quartz watches at a cost effective level for what seems like a bigger market.
