Help create a watch design? You know you want to! 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.
For this campaign, Division Furtive is not offering a watch, but rather the chance to sit in on a design focus group to provide input into their next watch, the Type 50. If you attend the event, you also get a keychain, and by supporting the event ether way, you will get updates on the project, which will be launched on a Canadian-based kickstarter platform. The event is stated to take place in June, which I don’t think will happen since the campaign will end in July, but it will be this summer. The event will be at ETOH Brasserie in Montreal (Yelp page), a nice looking spot with local beers, other drinks and nibbles. division-furtive.com

Patrick, the dude who literally saved this site from destruction about a year ago and kept it alive, just welcomed a new little girl to his happy family in Chicago. Let’s all give her a warm WWR welcome and I’d personally like to thank Patrick for being such a trooper.

I was just poking around when I noticed that WWR was born in June, 2006 and, having missed the big day, I thought I’d celebrate now.
It’s been a long couple of years, many of them dry and desiccated thanks to my many intervening gigs including EIC of Gizmodo and now TechCrunch. But I founded this site to learn more about watches and now, it seems, that I’ve gotten my money’s worth. I’ve written nearly a thousand posts on this site and also written 100,000 words on watches for other sources. I’ve also recently started working with Ariel Adams and we’re already at episode 86 of the Hourtime Show. Pretty nuts.

I’m going to guess we won’t be able to make this one, but FYI:
Dear watch-collectors and watch enthusiasts,
on September 3rd the former pilot, rallye driver and well known watchmaker from Frankfurt, Helmut Sinn, or as his friends do call him, the “fast Helmut”, celebrates his 90th birthday!
For this reason Helmut Sinn invites you for a small snack and a drink on
Saturday, the 2nd of September 2006, from 10:00 to approx. 16:00
in his office rooms of JUBILAR UHREN in Schultheissenweg 40, 60489 Frankfurt am Main. The office is in the district of Rödelheim, close to the old water tower.
Watch lovers will have the opportunity to see the entire Jubilar-, Guinand- and Chronosport-collections, or have a interesting chat with the watch master craftman Helmut Dietz, for all others there will be plenty of time to talk to Helmut Sinn himself.
So, come along, Helmut Sinn, or better: the “fast Helmut” is looking forward to seeing you!
P.S.: for our planning it would be very helpful if you could please answer to this invitation unti the 14th of August 2006. Please send us an e-mail under “email@example.com” or give us a call under 49 69 78 00 99. Thank you.
Meet by the old water tower!
Helmut Sinn proudly invites you! – Watchuseek Watch Forums [WatchuSeek]
