If I had unlimited funds I would be a watch nerd. I love watches. I love watches I can't afford. But even if I owned a ton of watches I can't afford I'm pretty sure this one would be my forever favorite. I wear it every day.
1701 Pontchartrain exhibition - 39 mm.
I love the old English D. I love the weight of it (it almost feels too heavy when you start wearing it but you get used to it quickly and now my wrist feels naked without it). I love that their watches are limited and numbered, so you know you are getting something truly special. And I love reading the Detroit history of what inspired this watch. You can read the story on their website.
It's a functional piece of art that makes you feel more connected to Detroit.
The Detroit Watch Company is a husband and wife team, Patrick and Amy Ayoub, who have a passion for watches and for Detroit. They design gorgeous pieces with Swiss technology that characterize Detroit history; the only watches designed and assembled in Detroit.
