Havaan Tuvali Watch

This time we talk about a microbrand from Taiwan called Havaan Tuvali!

These watches suprised me a lot the first time i have seen them because of their super cool vintage style and all their details with an affordable price!

The brand name, Havaan Tuvali was originated from the Taiwanese aboriginal Burun tribe language meaning “The deer’s sunset”.

The ancient Burun people believed that at suns down, when the deer came out from the forest to browse for food and water, that’s the time for the people to finish up their day of work, in some ways, it is also how they tell time.

This is a story about Eric Yeh, while he was visiting his case factory a while ago hoping to score some free gaskets and he saw this dusted box sitting in the corner of the warehouse that has export markings on it.

The factory owner said they made these watchcases for a French brand (now closed) back in the 70s but never sold them due to financial reasons.

So…. some begging and bargaining later, they become in the possession on Eric.

Specifications and movement

Since these are cases made some 50 years ago, of course he has to pair them with vintage movements as well, and what better choice than the popular and reliable Swiss automatic A. Schild 5103 movement.

THE SPECS

~ Swiss A. Schild AS5103 automatic movement

~ Case diameter 36x39mm

Hawchester Watches Microbrand

Today I want to present to you an exciting British microbrand I’ve just discovered, Hawchester London.

Hawchester was inspired by the legacy of British clock and watch making history.

From the 16th to the 18th century British clock and watchmakers pioneered several aspects of this industry and were regarded as the best the world over.

Hawchester watches is a dedication to this legacy of Great British watch making. Their very first collection was designed in a quintessentially British style, taking design inspiration from both luxury British automobiles and the pristine and varied landscapes of the British Isles. 

They named their first collection the “Clerkenwell” collection as a dedication to the watchmakers of Clerkenwell, London.

You can find both quartz and automatic watches.

Hawchester Clerkenwell Automatic

The automatic version of Hawchester watches are all the Clerkenwell Automatic model and houses a genuine Japanese Miyota automatic movement.

The watches are available in different colours (Dover White, Cannock Black, Oxford Blue, Tudor Red , Cumbrian Green)

Gane Watches Microbrand

Here we are with a new microbrand to discover that is called Gane Watches!

GANE is about old school cool automatic timepieces. 

Raymond (the founder) formed a partnership with a trusted company from Switzerland, a member of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH, to manage the execution of the watch project.

Their watch cases are manufactured using medical/marine grade 316L stainless steel with solid, boxed sapphire crystal lens.

Secondly, they brought in a reliable, easily serviceable automatic movement while keeping it cost effective.

They chose the Citizen Miyota automatic heartbeat from Japan.

Every single watch is tested for function and autonomy in Switzerland.​

With these bases covered, he started the design process and ended with the Type C – C being the starting note of the musical scale – as his first launch.

Design philosophy is based on timeless aesthetics with vintage cues, unique and intentional design, while making artistic and functional sense.

Brushing brings out the essence and the perfect look of steel, while keeping it robust against scratches, wear and tear. It is the most beautiful method of texturing the steel surface.

Towson Watch Co.

Time to talk about a new microbrand that is cold Towson Watch Co!

TWC was established in 1998 by George Thomas and Hartwig Balke, two German engineers that moved to America with the dream of starting a watch company.

While initially built on the custom production of timepieces for select clientele, TWC has established four signature collections (Silver, Limited, Chesapeake, Mission) over the past two decades that remain freshly updated.

Every model ref. is limited to the handcraft production of 50-500 pieces.

Martin-M-130 pilot chronograph

The Martin-M-130 pilot chronograph is named after the famous flying boat Martin
M-130, also called the China Clipper, built at the Glenn L. Martin Corporation in
Maryland.

It was a plane that shrunk the world, skipping across the Pacific like a rock across a pong in an astonishingly fast sixty hours.

The timepiece’s boldly colored dial was designed to replicate cockpit instruments of the 1930’s. A plush engraving of the famous China Clipper adorns the case back.

This timepiece is powered by a high-grade ETA/Valjoux Cal.7750 movement that has been decorated and adjusted by TWC watchmakers. Production is limited to 100 pieces.

The Cockpit Moon Chronograph

The Cockpit Moon Chronograph is a moonphase timepiece featuring one of Towson
Watch Company’s most decorated bezel designs.

The blued steel Breguet-style hands rest upon an intricate white color dial that features a stunning hand-guilloche pattern decorated with silver indicators for the time, day, month, date, hour, minute, second, 24-hour span and the moon phase.

All encapsulated in a 38mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystals on the front and open caseback.

This timepiece is powered by the same workhorse movement found in the rest of the “Mission Collection’s” moonphase chronographs, a high-grade ETA Cal. 7751 automatic movement that has been decorated and adjusted by TWC watchmakers.

The Cockpit Moon is water resistant to 50 meters and exclusively available for purchase on this website. Inquire for further custom options.

This variant of the Cockpit Moon is limited in production to 100 pieces.

Half-Skeleton

This unique half-skeleton timepiece was specially designed in conjunction and constant
communication with the components manufacturer in Germany before our inhouse
modifications, embellishments and assembly.

The solid sterling silver dial, consisting of two circles for minute/hour and second, complements the Guilloche decorated, black-coated main plate.

The specially treated gears and skeletonized and engraved bridges create a tasteful contrast
to the black background. A Guilloche pattern on the crown, ratchet wheel, and blued screws add
a striking finish to make this watch a work of art.

The stainless steel case has a diameter of 42mm and width of 12mm, encapsulating the beautiful guilloche dial that was hand-turned by our rose engine inhouse. The watch is powered by a high-grade ETA 17 jewel half skeleton Cal.

6498 manual wound movement, regulated to five positions. Additional features made inhouse
include a crew balance and swan neck fine regulation.

Sapphire crystal on the front and back allows for clear readability and durability. Functions include: second, minute, and hour.

The piece is water resistant to 50m and the strap width is 22mm.

Each collection retains its own unique characteristic, but they all share the feel, attention and build of TWC quality, communicating our traditional and personalized approach to the horologist’s craft.

Towson Watch Company specializes in the craft-production of mechanical timepieces.

They design, prototype, assemble, and perform most elements of the watchmaking process at their workshops in Towson, MD.

Components are sourced strictly by their partners in Switzerland and Germany.

All Towson watches are powered by high-grade Swiss movements that have been decorated and modified by their watchmakers.

They work closely with every one of our collaborators to produce a guaranteed quality, design, and exclusivity that exceeds the standard of American fine watchmaking.

All Towson watch models are exclusively sold on their website or at their store in Baltimore City located at101 W Dickman St. Baltimore, MD 21230. 

This allows them to offer you an accessible price point unmatched by any other high-grade mechanical watchmaker.

Each model ref. in our Silver and Chesapeake Collections are limited to 50-100 pieces while custom and gold watches range in production quantity from one to five total pieces.

Once a model is sold out, it will never be produced again.

TOOL WATCH CO. Microbrand

In primo piano

Today i want to present a new microbrand that i just discovered!

This new microbrand is TOOL WATCH CO. and has just developed a new interesting timepiece, the Arctic!

The Arctic is a robust, technical timepiece designed for accuracy and legibility, drawing
inspiration from the adventurous spirit of the early polar pioneers.

This new watch will be launched through Kickstarter on 2 November 2021.

The Arctic is a refined 38mm titanium, field-style watch for men and women and will be
available in 3 versions; the Signature Series blue meteorite dial, the Limited Edition black
meteorite dial, and the One of Ten white/grey meteorite dial.

The Arctic One of Ten is limited to ten units worldwide, and owners of this exclusive timepiece will have the option to work with Tool Watch Co’s design team to personalize their case back engraving.

Tool watch co. INSPIRATION

Tool Watch Co. takes inspiration seriously in its design process. Every aspect of their watches,
from colour choice to their components is thoughtfully considered.

The choice of the natural meteorite dial represents Greenlands Hiawatha Glacier – the first meteorite impact crater ever discovered under Earth’s ice sheets.

Cutting and finishing a meteorite dial requires time and skill.
Each Arctic dial is made from a solid slice of the Muonionalusta meteorite (found north of the
Arctic circle), and treated to bring out its natural crystalline pattern.

Swiss Super-Luminova GradeA BGW9 lume is used on the signature hour and minute hands, Arctic hunting-tool seconds hand, and dial indices for exceptional low light legibility.

They have developed a specific dial text methodology that will carry through to further models.
About the model designation sits at the top of the dial, and the subtext below acts as a summarised spec sheet of the core attributes of the watch in line with their tool watch aesthetic and the DNA of tool watches in general.

MOVEMENT

Tool Watch Co. has chosen Sellita’s SW200 to power the Arctic, a premium Swiss movement
known for its precision, accuracy, and reliability. Tool Watch Co’s choice tin using Sellita’s Swiss
movements is influenced by using watch movements that resonate with the region of inspiration,
in this case, northern Europe.

Luxury brands that use Sellita movements include IWC, Tag, Hublot, and Breitling.

CASEBACK

The case back features an original engraving of a polar bear on Tool Watch Co’s signature pattern,
symbolic of the harsh environment and enduring spirit of the Arctic.

STRAPS

Each Arctic will include a Saffiano strap, drawing on the heritage of using leather straps in cold
conditions, and a signature in-house designed titanium h-link bracelet. Watches and h-link
bracelets use HV1200 scratch-resistant coating. A half-link will be included with each bracelet so
customers can size it perfectly.

PACKAGING

They have engineered their packaging using environmentally-friendly foam. It is non-toxic,
lightweight, impact-resistant and, 100% recyclable. Its core purpose is to offset the CO2
generated by shipping heavier items of the same size and reducing non-recyclable waste.

a difference, especially in a marketplace saturated with greenwashing.

Sustainability forms the basis of their watches, and they are committed to setting an ethical example in the watch industry
by producing premium and sustainable items.

They are committed to finding sustainable solutions to wasteful production by incorporating overstock leather in their straps and recyclable materials to emphasize durability and an extended lifespan.

Standing by reliability and precision, they oversee their entire manufacturing process from design
to craftsmanship and use innovative materials and ethical manufacturing practices to merge their

They are those dreams that are still alive when you are old, and that will always be alive, producing you that joy that only a child can understand.


Their dream began with the common passion for watches that two cousins had.

They were both absolutely amazed by the orology and the exceptional timepieces that were built, however, the overpriced value made it impossible to acquire any of them. 


Such was the obsession to acquire those unaffordable watches, that at a family dinner in August 2020, the inspiration reached both of them out and decided that they were going to make exceptional watches such as the same that they admired, but with a slight difference, they were going to be affordable to everyone.

Watches that would express the passion that both cousins had for horology. 

At that moment, the PANUACH family was born, and with it, the aim of gathering and unifying all people around the world through the same thing, a timepiece.

The cities will be maintained in secret until the launching of each model, which means that you will not be able to know the whole PANUACH trip until the last destination is announced.


The aim of this collection is to connect the world through the most important metropolitan cities, making people all around the globe more knowledgeable about the different cultures and ethnicities.


Moreover, this collection will bring you the opportunity to discover the most awesome and exclusive places these metropolises are hiding.
