Over this weekend several of us Purists based here in Singapore had the great fortune of meeting Mr Romain Gauthier as well as enjoyed inspecting and photographing his new timepieces during his trip here to meet his new Authorised Dealers.
I personally found Romain a very patient amiable friendly gentleman and it was heart warming to see how geniunely well he got along with collectors (like myself) who asked dozens of questions to which he tried effectively to explain. I also found that it is in the very small details that he has innovated on his watches. I wish I could recall all he said and shared it here but I will leave that to others who actually interviewed him.
In the meantime, I would share a few images here and share the images I have of the watches later in December when I can surface again after my professional duties are complete.
Seen here in these images is the White Gold edition of his first watch with a beautiful olive grey strap.
