Seen a couple of brands that I know nothing of and can't find anything on here through the search function, so does anyone know anything about and of these three brands:

Bernhard H. Mayer

San Martin

Richard Legrande

Thanks for any pointers to where I can read up on these other than their own websites.

Google is very useful, for example a couple of minutes searching I found that Richard Legrande is a Singapore registered company founded in 2016, San Martin is a Chinese company based in Dongguan and Bernard H Mayer is owned by Mayer's Mint GmbH who started making watches in 2006 prior to which they made medals, coins and pocket watch cases

San Martin (the only of those I have experience of) make good quality "homage" watches along the lines of Steeldive - If anything, the San Martin ones are slightly better quality & like Steeldive, offer great value for money for those on a budget - I've bought one of each & would definitely buy another - There's a couple of UK based sellers for each too, so other than scouring eBay, you can buy from them & not worry about importing from the Far East ...

I'm confused about who is actually behind Bernard H. Mayer's jewellery and watches. They're being promoted by QNET, a Hong Kong based "direct marketing" company. This video implies that QNET is behind the design.

They have been linked for the last 20 years or so, underlying owners or partners?
