While on vacation with my family in Paris, I had an appointment with Etienne at Baltic Watches earlier this morning. Great guy with interesting vision. He's young, energetic, passionate and inspired by the past. His father's collection was an inspiration as he looks back to the 40s with this launch. Tried on the new watches of this French microbrand over coffee at their office. Watches are available on Kickstarter and priced under $500. They quadrupled their goal within 4 hours!! While all Early Bird specials are gone (super early birds were gone in minutes) if you order before May deadline you still save $170 Euros on the chronograph before they go full price this summer. Cool stuff. Also you can hear an interview with him on Worn and Wound podcast #6 as well as a Hodinkee write up yesterday. While the black and cream dials have been the most popular according to Etienne, I was surprised at how warm the blue dial was in the sun. Also the grey dial with blue hands was tempting. Going to be hard to narrow this down. I'm definitely getting the black and gold three hander with the green perlon strap. As far as the chronograph, that's a tough decision! Anyway, here are some photos from my visit. Hope you enjoy!
