I see from their website that Hoptroff have changed tack and no longer appear to be in the watch business.
Given how little Morgenwerk's stock levels have changed, I wonder how much longer they will hang on for.
The De Havilland site does not seem to have changed for a couple of years but I presume they still have watches for sale.
Of all the niche businesses to go in for, when the watch world is awash with Kickstarter projects sticking inexpensive, readymade mechanical or low-grade quartz movements into an array of cases to suit (almost) all tastes, what sort of business plan could make developing a new, in-house HAQ look like a viable proposition?
If anyone knows of a successful HAQ microbrand then please do share!
