How to begin another watch brand on the off chance that you don’t have the financial plan, yet you do have a thought, the experience and required information? Vincent Plomb, a watch constructor by profession, did it in an extremely special way. He began his image VicenTerra and dispatched his first watch by subscription.
It was August 2010 when I originally enlightened you concerning this new brand , just subsequent to discovering some data on Facebook. After I expounded on this astonishing activity I connected with Vincent Plomb and we sent about his recently begun watch brand and the new GMT-3. Late 2010 he was near beginning creation . Presently VicenTerra began conveyance of the main membership request batch.
If it wasn’t for online media, the brand VicenTerra would presumably not have existed and the new GMT-3 would not be in excess of a thought and a few drawings. Up until half a month prior, all press data and the site were accessible in French just, so I do trust spread the word in English currently too (again).
After this first group of 100 pieces made for membership just purchasers (at the unique cost of 5,000 CHF) the GMT-3 will be accessible through vendors for 15,000 CHF. Also, surmise what… after the GMT-3 there will be more models coming from VicenTerra! Vincent previously educated me regarding thoughts he has for other watches, again with captivating complications. Later more about that, presently the GMT-3…
The GMT-3 highlights an enormous three-dimensional globe that turns around one hub experiencing the two posts. The pivoting globe can be seen from the dial side, from the back and through a port-opening in the side of the case!
Furthermore the GMT-3 has a day/night pointer (situated at 12 o’clock), a subsequent time region GMT hand (situated at 7 o’clock) and a retrograde date (situated at 2 o’clock). Furthermore, obviously there are the focal hours, minutes and seconds hands.
