Neither had I until, on Friday, I found out that Page & Cooper have been appointed ADs in the UK.

They are though on our Watch Brand List, been around since 1857 Dodane1857 and have an interesting history.

That was my immediate thought too, as I've often much admired Dave / Winnie Bloo's Breguet, and they're no doubt a bit cheaper.

i really like the classic simpliciity. i like the placement of the logo and text - even the 12 and 6 are slightly positioned right to create that imaginary line down the centre. crisp and quirky. and helvetica is the name of the font, which is cool. i don't think i can do without a date window on my watch, but otherwise this one really catches my eye. 8)

watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment

Quirky, for sure!

I'm dreaming of one of these today, and it's not the first time. Next year one of these could be on the cards if I can sell some of my other watches, and try to stay in the black. (That's a big if.)

Certainly not to everyone's taste, but I rather like these two as "out there" watches. (And yes the second one has nano wires operating the hand!!!!)

^^^^ The ideal would be a mint condition one, worn in rotation, picked up from a comprehensive sales post, complete with top quality pics and a forum stalwart as the seller.....
