    Episode 18: Horoloupe

    Our guest on this episode of the Revolution Watch Podcast is none other than Austen Chu, a young but prominent collector, known by many of us as @horoloupe on Instagram, and a familiar face amongst our pages.

    When we sat down with Austen just before Christmas, we were only keen to learn more about his collecting habits, how he has helped grow the community of watch collectors through his social media accounts, and the burgeoning role collectors today have in bringing their dream watches to life as unique pieces. He also shared a little about a passion project he's working on — designing a new line of accessories and jewellery called Seraph.

    What we didn't know then, was that Austen was secretly working away with Audemars Piguet not to create a unique piece like most collectors do, but to create a limited edition series of watches exclusively for the Chinese market. An incredible milestone to say the least!

    The news is out now of course, and Austen was kind enough to share some of his thoughts on the process.

    Episode 13: Felix Baumgartner

    Episode 13: Felix Baumgartner

    Felix Baumgartner is the co-founder of Urwerk, whose approach to high horology is like nothing else on the market. In its short 20-plus years, its unique ability to marry traditional watchmaking and clockmaking expertise in extremely contemporary designs quickly established the independent company as one of the most ingenious and unique brands in today's industry.

    A third generation watchmaker, Baumgartner grew up in his father's workshop, watching him restore antique clocks, which greatly influences his creative process today. When he met Martin Frei in 1995, they realised their interests in objects of time measurement were aligned, and Urwerk was born.
