In recent weeks, we have had the pleasure of featuring one of the premiere houses of watchmaking, Leroy and several other notable brands. We spoke a lot about experience and a legacy of excellence in timepiece craftsmanship in our first article in this series, where we featured Laurent Ferrier, Greubel Forsey, and F.P. Journe. A couple of weeks ago, with our second article, Guy Ellia, Breguet, and Patek Philippe offered a more diverse but almost as historic comparison with Leroy.
Today, we are pleased to complete this series with a few more houses of note…
Blending the rigorous culture of Swiss-German watchmaking and the more traditional culture of Swiss-French watchmaking, URWERK maintains a goal and standard of horological excellence. Contrary to the more traditional and classic designs of timepieces we see from Leroy, URWERK’s luxury watches look highly technical, with mechanisms that hold a definitively masculine, gadget-driven aura. These timepieces are definitely innovative in craftsmanship as well as design.
Since master watchmaker Christophe Claret began his work in 1989, his dedication to invention, innovation, and creativity with his luxury timepieces has been palpable. Christophe Claret’s horology with traditionally crafted timepieces offers masterful complexity and a fresh approach – each is skillfully designed with three-dimensional appeal. The watchmaker’s Extreme and Gaming collections offer something new and exciting in their luxury timepiece offering.
Several centuries of watchmaking history go into the design for each timepiece from the house of De Bethune. According to the watchmaker, “Like the classic chef d’oeuvres of historical master-watchmakers, De Bethune creations are authentic sculptures in which every component is designed to occupy all three spatial dimensions.” Their innovative creations offer their own perspective and craftsmanship with a flavor that fans of Leroy’s recent collections will certainly appreciate.
Thank you for joining us on this journey, exploring some of the notable names in watchmaking – we hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have. If you are interested in browsing through some of the outstanding Leroy watches in our offering, please click here.
