WBOTD 7/27/2012 DAVOSA

Post by Ocean on 2012-07-27, 08:41

Some interesting watches some look like hmmm, take a look for yourself. Prices seem to be not to bad.

1993 marked the beginning of the sustainable development of the DAVOSA brand. 1993 was also the year in which Hasler & Co S.A. began cooperating with watch distributor, Bohle GmbH, who has been active in the German market since the 1960s.

The mechanical watch was already experiencing something of a renaissance in Germany, where a high-quality, limited collection of mechanical timepieces under the brand name DAVOSA was a resounding success. Watch retailers and watch aficionados alike appreciated the combination of superior workmanship, high mechanical precision and a contemporary design that is classic enough to endure. The success of this first collection prompted further successful series and the cooperation between Hasler & Co. SA and Bohle GmbH became ever closer over the years.

In 2000, Corinna Bohle took over responsibility for strategic brand development, and both marketing and distribution are now managed from Germany. The contours of the characteristic DAVOSA design were further honed and brand quality was optimised through the acquisition of new specialist suppliers. One result of this repositioning was the production of the first limited series, the DAVOSA Panamericana, in 2002 – a particular milestone in the brand's history. The entire series can now be found in the portfolios of private watch collectors.

Today the DAVOSA brand, carried by an independent, family-run company, has a global presence and is an integral part of the mechanical watch world.

Davosa also makes watches for the d. freemont brand which I find more visually appealing, especially the airbatic



This one is for sale over at wus, if I wasn't saving for the rado d-star 200 I would have snapped it up.

I love my freemont:





Dave McCeady's stuff used to be relatively inexpensive (I got this one a couple of years ago for around $600). Now, with the Swiss Franc kicking the dollar's ass and the price of ETA movements going through the roof, his prices have pretty much doubled. It's cool dealing with him, though. You call him up and chat for about half an hour, then he sells you a Swiss-made watch that he's personally regulated.

Thanks! It's number five of eleven made. The watch, not the lace table cloth.
