There’s a lot more to modern watchmaking than what you see from the big guys. It’s not that Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe, and the like are doing anything wrong – they’re showing a ton of great watches this year, believe us – it’s just that they represent a certain perspective and approach. But a whole crop of independent watchmakers are offering an alternative take. Here, Stephen and Arthur take a look at some of the most creative watches at this year’s Baselworld, including the Grönefeld brothers’ 1941 Remontoire and Kari Voutilainen’s Vingt-8 ISO, and discuss what the independents can add to the larger conversation.
