BUILD YOUR VERY OWN WATCH

 by ROMAN BUSCH

Do you remember the beginning of the '90s, when pop singer Madonna has called on to express yourself? In today's digital age, individualization is the daily exercise for every modern citizen. These words sound familiar, especially for a watch nerd like me, always hunting for the next extraordinary timepiece to express my personal taste and style. Roger Loosli from Limmat Watches goes one-step further and is offering the ultimate watch experience; "build your own, high quality, mechanical watch in only three hours". Wow, to choose my preferred design, combined with the emotional experience of assembling the watch by my own hands, sounds like the next level of individualization. Let's do it...

ROLEX DATEJUST YELLOW GOLD IN CASUAL

ROLEX DATEJUST YELLOW GOLD MAN IN TIME

ROLEX DATEJUST YELLOW GOLD REF. 1601 36mm

This time MAN IN TIME is breaking the casual rule. During the weekend I had the chance to spend some sunny hours in bella Italia - on the wrist, a good friends vintage Rolex Datejust in yellow gold. For private trips like this, I usually prefer an easy, casual dress code and most of the time I combine jeans, t-shirt with a vintage tool watch in steel. But this weekend I was breaking the casual rule - twice! A 36 mm dress watch instead of a 40 mm sporty tool watch and yellow gold instead of stainless steel. What a surprise - I won't go back to steel.

HIPSTERS AND THE WATCH ROLL

 by ROMAN BUSCH

OMEGA SEEMASTER CHRONOSTOP MAN IN TIME

Today you can meet trendy hipsters just around every corner. In terms of style, everyone likes to be unique but by the end of the day we all tend to copy some visionary opinion leaders. Consequently we are riding the same, to the max reduced bikes, wearing the same trapper style full beard and the same full arm tattoos... We all like to be different but finally we all look the same. The sheep follows the shepherd. It just reminds me of the Daytona SS hype during the 90s. But on the other hand there is this cool type of man were you can feel that everything is real - no show just flow. This type of man that never would sell his soul just to be painfully different. He is what he is - authentic...
