    Mooren an independent watchmaker?

    Hi,

    As you'll can see, I'm new here. I have a long interest in watches and a special appreciation of independent watchmakers. Now I know that there is not an objective understanding of what makes a watchmaker an independent, but I think that saying the members of the AHCI are, is probably rather non-contentious.

    What surprises me, is to find Mooren classified here as an independent. I have read his story and find it highly inspirational, but would not call him an independent watchmaker nevertheless. Why do you think he qualifies as an independent watchmaker ?,

    Regards,

    Pom.

    Not high-end and not independent.
    Kind regards

    No offense to Mick Mooren , but I believe his sub-forum sort of is parked here in lieu of an other forum where it could fit.
    But you're right, this is a "Forum dedicated to the independent watchmakers and their high-end watches" and it's neither.

    MOOREN is not an independent watchmaker. The MOOREN watches are made by Ickler in Germany (the company who manufactures also the LIMES and ARCHIMEDE catalog).

    I would put this brand in the "watch label" or "micro brand" category.
    Have a wonderful time...
