At Supra-Quintessence, we love vintage watches, so when we have learned about Baltic Watches, we were positively surprised.
Baltic Watches in a new vintage inspired watches company.
Baltic Watches is a family of watch connoisseurs with a passion for traditional craftsmanship. They believe the most timeless and desirable watches are often the simplest however, it seems many modern watch brands add unnecessary complexity to their designs.
For this reason we decided to create Baltic Watches. They want to focus on a more authentic approach, bringing together the purest watchmaking techniques to create a vintage-inspired timepiece for your wrist.
The results are neo-vintage, 1940’s-style watches with mechanical movements and well-proportioned cases inspired by the traditional Step Case watch (recognisable by its distinctive ridge or step surrounding the hesalite glass).
A negative point is that most of the Baltic Watches movements are Made in China. We are sure that those movements aren’t bad but if you already assembling all the watches in France, why not buying Swiss movements ?
For sure the watches would have been more expensive, but on the other hand, people agree to pay more for real quality….
Baltic Watches are for the moment on Kickstarter.
