    Pierre de Roche anyone?

    Has anyone had any experience with this watch brand? Saw it on the net and was intrigued.

    I'd not heard of the brand before, but I must say I personally quite like that one and some of their other models. I think a number of the "split rock" and "grand cliff" watches are very nicely designed with a fusion of modern avant-garde and traditional elegance, a bit like some Tag Heuers and Perrelets. Plus they're Swiss Made and have Dubois Depraz movements so they have pretty solid engines too. I bet they cost an arm and a leg though .

    There's a price list at the bottom of the watch that you can click on. It's not as bad as I thought. ;)

    Very nice original design, from what i understand an inhouse movement, and some interesting history. I give them a thumbsup. I really like the dial of the watch above, not a huge fan of the bezel.

    This is why I don't buy quartz.
