The Tissot NBA Roadshow is Coming to Chicago

I like talking about local watch makers, and I also like bringing you word of cool watch-related events that are coming to my neck of the woods. Tissot is making a lot of noise around their new partnership with the NBA. At the moment, we do not have much in the way of new designs or team-specific watches, but they are working to get the word out about the relationship.

WatchBuys Road Show Report, Fun Times in the Rose City

WatchBuys is an on-line retailer of German Watches, where the watches they represent have a limited or non-existent retail presence. With limited ability to go into a store, it is tough to really get a feel for the quality and, frankly, beauty of these watches. Hence, a road show. The events are invitation only, but all you have to do in order to get an invitation is ask. There are no sales whatsoever at the WatchBuys road show events, it is all for watch lovers to check out these smaller brands. This past weekend they were in Los Angeles (Pasadena to be exact), and I checked out the wares.

Want Input into a Watch Design?

You know you do. The next question is, can you make it in person to an event in Montreal? If you answered yes to both of those, and you can spare $1 CAD, or you can’t do the 1st two and want to get on the mailing list for a new watch, check out Division Furtive’s new kickstarter campaign. Patrick took a look at their last kickstarter project, the Type 40 back in 2012.
