Basel World 2015 - Eye on Basel

March 24, 2015

Your own Mr. Timepiece, watch enthusiast and founder of Timescape, is jetting his way to the big event. Yes, the place to be if one loves watches: Basel, Switzerland.  And if you are into yodeling, chocolate and great scenic vistas, also a good place to be. I am always awestruck upon entering the exhibition hall. It is a sense akin to being clothed in the aura of horologic history and legend, that stunning first impression of timepiece nirvana. And there are thousands of adherents like myself, advancing mere feet at a time, jostling to continue their pursuit of fantasy.                                                                                                              

I will be forwarding images and video from Basel. 

More to follow when I return.

“Watches Are a Personal, Emotional Endeavor”

March 23, 2015

In the interest of enlarging the discussion, TimeScape will continue to host occasional interviews with members of the local watch enthusiast community.  I know Brian through #REDBARMSP and as a client interested in customizing his private pieces.  We exchanged a few notes by email regarding where he fits in the ecology of enthusiasts, and his perspective may surprise you.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                "A watch isn't just the timepiece; it's the history, tradition, and branding.  Many companies can make a solidly engineered product...that has no soul."  "You want my watch money, you need to be proven."

When “No” Means “No”

March 03, 2015

Here at TimeScape we make it our mission not just to service your particular watch, but as many varieties of timepiece as possible but every once in awhile, to my shame as a technician and Student of Horology, I have to tell a client “No can do!” . Our “heirloom” pocketwatches were the Swatch watches of their day: stylish, mass-produced, shoddy items, priced to sell to people of varying means. Does this make such things impossible to repair?  Of course not.  It makes them impossible to repair at a reasonable price, commensurate with the value of the piece itself.  Parts are often unavailable, or made in such a way that they cannot be installed, so I must reluctantly council the client that to proceed would be folly.

Watch Spa 101

February 24, 2015

When I was young my father spent every weekend washing and waxing his British racing green Triumph TR-7.  Actually it was a red Volkswagon Rabbit, but keeping it pretty was the next best thing to owning the car he wanted.  When your majority stake in that tech start-up finally pays off, TimeScape will be happy to curate monthly additions to your collection of fine timepieces.  But until you can be with the watch you love, we advise: Honey, love the one you're with.
