With the wiping out of all significant watch occasions, it was at that point a beautiful strange beginning of the year ( Watches & Wonders dropped and Baselworld deferred .) Countries like Italy have been in full lockdown mode for quite a long time, Spain too, and now other European nations follow after accordingly. Schools are shut, sports clubs, rec centers, bars, eateries, galleries, zoos, theaters, show lobbies, everything, aside from the minimum essentials like grocery stores, drug stores, and medical clinics. Throughout the next few weeks, we will be “confined to our homes” and it would seem that a large number of you, our perusers, will be in a lovely comparative circumstance. Here’s what you may expect from us. Since we’re not abandoning you!
According to the most recent news, we’re all restricted to our homes until early April. MONOCHROME doesn’t have a major office where we all work consistently. We generally telecommute or from “somewhere on the road”; which could be a watch produce in Switzerland or Germany, an occasion some place/anyplace or while voyaging. We’re computerized wanderers and we’re used to that. Yet, these are bizarre, dreamlike times.
Rebecca lives in Madrid, a city she depicted today as a phantom town. Individuals are just permitted to go out to visit the grocery store and drug store, however running in the recreation center is taboo. Brice lives in Tours, France, where it’s possibly somewhat less exacting (for the time being), yet in addition abandoned and individuals just go out for necessities like staple goods. Same for Xavier, who lives in Switzerland, around Neuchatel to be exact, and his standard excursions to makes are generally dropped as practically all brands have a severe no-visitor strategy. In Switzerland, as in the Netherlands, schools are shut, which means both Xavier and I have the children home.
Of course, we as of now have a great deal of information arranged, from watches that we had in for audit or news we previously had under ban. So for the present moment, there are some new watches from Breguet, another blue Porsche Design Flyback or a few cool watches from Hamilton coming. Xavier is visiting Bvlgari today (one of only a handful few special cases for the ‘no-visitor policy’) and he will see Bovet not long from now, so there will be some ‘fresh’ news in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. Other than this news, we have a long two-section story about pocket watches, from Erik, and we’re setting up certain stories about watches in our own assortments, just as additional top to bottom articles that we ordinarily don’t have the opportunity to cover. Simply saying, on the off chance that you’re limited to your homes, and you’re tired of one more Coronavirus update, we have enough horological news for you!
But in particular, from the whole group at MONOCHROME, stay safe!
