If you’ve been following The Horophile for a while now, you will have no doubt noticed my fascination with watchmaking of the quirky, nontraditional genre; something independent brands and watchmakers tend to excel at.


Problem is, most such watches cost far more than what a more modest watch buyer such as myself is able or willing to fork out.

Well, it just so happens thatI recently started writing for The Hour Glass blog, Singapore’s leading retailer and long supporter of independent watch brands, and one of my first posts is about five reasonably priced (relatively speaking of course) watches from established independent watchmaking brands.

So which five pieces of disruptive watchmaking do I think are a bargain and great way to enter the world of alternative horology? Find out here: http://www.thehourglass.com/5-entry-level-watches-independent-brands/
