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.







It’s been now two, three seasons that we see a comeback of French young brands/labels.

Brands like BWGH, Ami, Monsieur Lacenaire, La Panoplie and others are sold all over the World.

One of those new comers is Maison Labiche. Maison Labiche was founded in 2011 by two friends, Jenny and Marie.

The concept behind Maison Labiche is to create clothes that will last for long in terms of styles and quality.

The main product of the collection is hand embroidered tee Made in France.

We like “The Dude” one 🙂


When we found out about this new Parisian Hotel we could have say “another one in Paris”…. But that’s just not another new hotel in Paris, that’s a great Parisian Spot !

Imagine a great location in the 10th District (next door to Vivant and to the New Morning), a great design, a very friendly Staff (yes, a friendly Staff in Paris) and a perfect room service (directly from Vivant), not forgetting about the rates (as from 138€)….

That’s what the Paradis Hotel is all about….

This great concept was created by Adrien Gloaguen, son of Le Routard Founder. When we see the Hotel, we believe that Gloaguen have learned from his Father what hotels are all about !

If you visit Paris, don’t miss that one.
