My Business partner and I have been commissioned to design and make a customised high end watch for a prominent Australian businessman. I am a CAD designer and my business partner a Jeweller. We have never made a watch before. To put it all in perspective our client has set us a budget of $250K USD.
With a budget like that we do not wish to use just any watch movement. We need to find a watch movment worthy of such a price tag.
Can anyone suggest a supplier of quality, high end mechanical watch movements? or even better can they suggest (if they still exisit) a custom hand made watchmaker?
If not then you can help by telling me what movement you would buy with a budget of above $25K ?
