Tony from Reactor Watches Q&A. Please post your Questions

Post by Ocean » Thu May 10, 2012 5:33 pm

Tony from Reactor Watches is coming to do a Question and Answer with our Forum. If you have any questions please take the time to post them as Tony is taking his time answer them. In my last email it looks like he will be coming in on Monday to answer the questions. I would like thank Tony for his participation.

Tony, I will be the first to ask:

Why and how did you choose the 9015 to be your first automatic?

Why do you think it has been so difficult for the watch industry to adopt a culture of transparency? In this era of instant information, subterfuge is bound to be discovered (for example, Tag using reworked Seiko 6S37 movements, or DOXA cases being manufactured in China by Walca).

Reactor has a reputation for creating distinctive case and bracelet designs. Many are bold, chunky and have a dash of mechanical/industrial-style elements.

1) What are your artistic influences for such models?
2) How influenced is Reactor by fluctuating industry trends such as case sizes and materials when new models are on the drawing board?
3) As a pre-watch company owner and only a collector, what one watch model design can you personally point to that prompted you to think, "I would like to build watches!"?

Would be really interested in a automatic (only) sized down to around 42mm. Single rotating bezel (or non-diver), something less bulky.
Question------> Anything planned like above?

Do like your dual illumination concept btw.
