SIHH 2015 preview....
This new Cartier is a masterpiece featuring a flying tourbillon, guilloché dial, and 46mm white gold case. Inside ticks the caliber 9458 MC which features 21,600 BPH and a power reverse of approximately 50 hours. You can see more pictures and read the whole story at Perpetuelle here.
I browse Kickstarter quite a bit (99% of the time it's looking at watches) and I recently came across Peren. The Classic Chrono is a timeless, yet innovative design with a "direct-to-consumer" approach. This approach is not at all uncommon and we are seeing many common marketing elements in the Peren campaign. These include, the highest quality for the lowest price possible. While I may not agree with marketing methods similar to these, it appears that (if you look through the fluff), Peren is actually providing these watches at a very good price. With watches starting at just 190 CAD (around $170 USD) Peren is providing a quality watch for a good price. The case is 40mm in diameter with a leather strap or bracelet. You can view everything else here.
**Note that the watch is not Swiss Made, but is designed there and the watchmaker was trained there. I am in no way validating any claims made in the Kickstarter campaign and I am not to be held responsible for a project gone wrong.
