MB&F machines

MB&F machines MB&F I am a firm believer. Why? Because I believe in the people who trusted me when I was a nobody. Max trusted me, just as Vianney Halter, DuFour, IWC’s two Asian MDs, Rolf and Blumlein, when I had no money to buy their watches. I had no advertising leverage in those days. I owe a lot to TheHourGlass. It was a time when the MOST expensive watch I could buy was the Freak and the Antiqua. Greubel Forsey was being handled by another retailer, now gone down.   Today, I am buying both used old watches, second hand watches, at market prices. Not because I don’t want to buy new….fact is, for me, it is easier and just as inexpensive to buy new…but because of the leverage of a dynamic created by luck, of my owning a...

Leica ? The rare brass Leica from TheHourGlass & watches

Leica . More than a piece of desire. This Leica will not be easy to hide, or be inconspicuous at all.  It will be uncommon to see, if at all…  http://www.lhsa.org/raregallery/show/50/ and https://luminous-landscape.com/leica-m240-impressions/ Only thing is getting the right lenses with the right color…and vice versa, this brass lens is not going to be mounted aesthetically well but on a black body…hmm. Not a big issue…but a beautiful camera, which I suspect will hardly be used. I will never waste it…it will partner well with uniquely colored Leica M ‘s…..it almost sounds silly.
