    Polpora watches

    So, after years of absenteeism from watch making scene, finally there is a company that in 2006 started watch manufacturing in the old county, Poland. So what do you guys think about their current offering.

    We’ll see what will happen with them as the time progresses, maybe one day they will be as big as one of the other Polish brain-child’s, Patek-Philipe , even their logos look similar.


    There are only two kinds of people in the world, the ones that own Sinn U1, U1W, U2, UX, U212 and U-Unlimited, and ones that don’t.

    I am the ruler of the attunement to my inner self.

    Polishammer! You shouls Email them and tell them to use a more widespread format (pdf for example) for the pics.
    I am too unable to open the pics.

    (And do not forger that Patek would be forgotten in the Horological field was it not for his first watchmaker, the Czech born Frantisek Capek!! )

    What a culturally poor and sad world it would be without the Slavic people......

    OK Janne, since you are demanding the notion...

    I had no problem opening their pics, but oh well. Here is a pdf with some of the examples

    Yes, Polishammer, sometimes the World must be enlightened !
    Many thanks for the accesible file!
    I had to check out the steel 316 LS. Higer percentage of Chromium, Nickel and Molybdenum. Higher rust resistance and softer than 316L.
    Used in surgical implants. Also sold under the name " BioDur".
    Nice to see a fullsized movement in those 42mm watches!

    interestingly enough i have been looking for a polish watchmaker recently.i am lucky enough to be going out with a lovely polish girl now for the last 2 years and i travel to poland when i have holidays to see her . she lives in cracow and i live in ireland and im there 4 times a year i love walking around the old jewish part of town kazimierz and looking at the stalls on the weekend you never know what youl find there but ive never seen a polish watch before. these watches look quite nice and i wish them the best of luck hopefully with the rise in the polish economy they will make some money and prosper ps polish must be one of the hardest languages to learn

    My wife is of Polish descent, it'd be great to be able to get a watch from Poland. I took a look at the pictures and am liking the Saksofon quite a lot. Anyone have an idea how much these watches cost?
