This month, FratelloWatches blog exists 5 years already! For 5 years, I have been ranting almost watches, the watch industry, Basel, SIHH, watch paperbacks, accessories, boutiques, jewelers etc. etc. During the final 5 years, I have made a lot of friends in the watch commerce. Some of them became real friends and I am seeing amenable to encounter more interesting (watch) people in the coming years.
Just recently, I met on-line with the people over at Plaza Watch. After a short e-mail, I received a cluster of Plaza Watch magazines at home to get one motif of their go. I was amazed, not had watched it before and the quality of the articles and photos (-wowed me-) are fair terrific. I am used to the fussy German magazines with endurance tests and in-depth reviews, very factual. The Dutch watch magazines are a morsel more glossy, but in-depth articles are infrequent and photos are mainly press-kit photos that are available on the watch manufacturer’s website for well. This Plaza Watch magazine is a Swedish magazine, written in English and have a lot of amazing photo reports.
Plaza Watch started in 2006 and release 3 issues each year, one of them principally for BaselWorld, one nigh Christmas for the SIHH period and one in the autumn (late September). As I wrote on, their photographing is wonderful, done by globe level rewarded photographers favor Chris & Gael and Tomas Monka. As for the critique line-up, these include outstanding horological editors like Elizabeth Doerr Patek Philippe, Nicholas Foulkes, Maria Doulton and Claire Adler and extra..?Ǭ� The magazine is available in 45 countries and English language merely.
As Anders Modig (Editor in Chief since September 2007) mailed me, he believes that a good (watch) magazine should show true artistry of not only watchmakers, yet also of photographers, illustrators and designers. Both the editors and photographers should be able apt dare the manufacture! This shows in their magazine.
Especially for the readers of FratelloWatches, Plaza Watch gives away 3 subscriptions! Please react in the comments field whether you are amused in appropriate a subscription in what I trust namely 1 of the maximum interesting watch magazines obtainable. I guarantee you that you ambition find yourself amplifying it by the end
Big thanks to Jay Gullers and Anders Modig of Plaza Watch to make this likely and for their kind and interesting e-mails.
Update! Johan, Luigi G and Roald, you are the fortunate victors!
