The Micro-Brand WATCH thread!

Dear all,

Been lurking around for sometime and I feel that there isn't much attention to the lesser known watch brands. Hence, I would like the community the post and donate their great photographs of their watches that are not of the major brands.

I will start soon after taking photos of my existing watches.

Post away my friends!

Huh? I think the main watch thread a lot of people quite like microbrands leh. It's not just Seiko or Rolex.

Actually I know quite a number of people who appreciate both mainstream brands and microbrands, it's also why Singapore has so many watch microbrands, be it Zelos and the whole Elshan stable, Boldr, Gruppo Gamma, or even more niche brands like Movas or Azimuth.

Anyways, here's a Gorilla that I wore today (and also posted on main watch thread earlier):

I saw some other models of this brand from watchwonderland. Not really my style but Balticus stardust stole my heart with their aventurine watch dial.

Hmm, I'm not sure I want a sparkling dial on my wrist though. But the watch is nice.

A microbrand is defined as a small-scale brand recognized only in a certain geographic location or by consumers in a specific micromarket or niche market. The majority of microbrands are owned by a microbusiness, but this trend is beginning to change due to the expansion of the internet and advancement of micromarketing tools. The process of identifying and micro-segmenting customers into more refined targets is becoming an efficient and rewarding operation for larger companies and corporations.
