    Which Others have such a high quality?

    Guys,

    Recently came across 2 Watch Brands..

    They were ::

    Monta

    Ginault

    I'm not sure if I categorised correctly by calling them microbrand's!

    I personally think the build quality fit & finish including wrist presence are superb.

    Was wondering are there any other brands out there with such great quality in a category I know very little about?

    Thank you...

    There's tonnes of high end microbrands

    Have a look at this

    The ones mentioned in this vid are really nice but there's a lot more, just depends on what style of watch you're looking for.

    There are far too many Microbrands to count. It is also hard to define Micro-Brand

    There are many High Horology Independent watchmakers. By the strictest definition they are also micro-brands given their limited runs and they have no owner company.

    I've always been a fan of Helson,

    Especially thier Shark Diver Series, that smartly accomidate 38mm, 40mm, 42mm and 45mm in SS and TI as welkl as JPN and Swiss movements.

    I own a 40mm in Turquoise, and can attest thier fit and finish is excellent for the $600 price range.

    Also like their Skin-Diver but could never pull the trigger due to 51mm Lug to Lug

    Would eventully like to buy a Gage just for the crazy novelty of it. Wouldn't likely get wrist time unless I'm going swimming or something.
