    Ben you're an inspiration to anyone with a good idea and the drive and passion to make something beautiful. Like I said, other countries are climbing that same mountain and have put their "new" and "cheap" reputation far behind them. China will eventually do the same, and you will be one of the first I'm sure. You're absolutely right to draw on China's rich artisanal, cultural, artistic and even industrial history as the basis for a new reputation.

    By the way, of all the novelties you've shown, your porcelain example was really something. I would love to see that in your collection one day because it is inherently beautiful, quintessentially Chinese, and even the makers who use vitreous ceramics just haven't gone anywhere near that direction It's a brilliant idea and one of my favourite expressions of Chinese art. Do it!

    Ben,

    The midnight blue would be an excellent color, not sure you could have picked a better alternate color frankly. Your passion will likely have me seriously considering a watch, in fact PM is on it's way as I'm interested in more info.

    Still love that face. What are your opinions of the case?

    The case is, in my opinion, one of the HUGE selling points. It is one of the most gorgeously designed cases I have ever seen, ever. It is multi-faceted, and just downright gorgeous.

    That's really beautiful. Sometimes less "stuff" seems to give more dress watch. I love the texture of the dial. That is a peach.

    Very kind of you. Just checking. By the way, do you ever sell on SF for your employer? And if not, why not?

    Lovely! Congratulations. :)

    Hi guys, I would really appreciate any insight you may have about MKII or Sinn. Trying to decide between the two companies and want some expert opinion between the two companies. One is US while the other is made in Germany and I know that depending on my personal taste and style, that will be the biggest deciding factor but I like both brands and feel that they both have something to offer in terms of my style. Thanks guys!

    Sinn.

    Sinn has heritage, MKII makes homages.

    If its between these two, all other things being equal, the answer is clear.
