Revolution meets Rolex Submariner Replica Watches's half-brother after his appearance at the London Horology Forum's Dubai Watch Week.
You attended Dubai Watch Week (DWW), London. It was amazing to see the number and quality of British watchmakers. Your opinion on the UK watch industry today?
DWW is a wonderful initiative for the watch industry and it was a great opportunity to show British watchmaking in London. It shows there is interest in watchmaking all over the globe and it is not just a Swiss specialty.Rolex Submariner Replica Watches Peter SpeakeMarin, Richard Stenning, and I witnessed the end of London watchmaking as the London School of Horology moved from Hackney to Epping College. In the early 2000s, funding was cut but fortunately a group semi-retired students founded the Epping Forest Horology Centre with the support of the BHI. Today it is a charity.

British watchmaking is slowly recovering and we have the rare opportunity to use an English style that dates back to pre-industrial times. Our unique history is something we can draw on.Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica There is no shortage of ideas or resources worldwide, and sometimes all it takes to drive growth is a few people. A small group of people created the Time Aeon Foundation. There have been many workshops all over the world that have reached to Mexico, Dubai, and the US.
You stated that independence gives you freedom and allows you to create your own products without being sold. Is there really no need to consider commercial considerations?
None that I know of. Robert [Greubel] starts with an idea. If we hadn't thought about a price point, Robert and I wouldn't have been able to make it. Our projects must be financially viable, but there are limits to what can be done. Independence is a right to freedom. Frodsham just unveiled the Double Impulse Chronometer Wristwatch. It took them ten years to create, but they stuck with their guns and did it their way.
