It has been exciting to watch Ian Schon's progress on his Instagram feed over the last several years but the day has finally arrived and he has officially launched his brand Schon Horology.
Ian started out in industrial manufacturing with an affinity for high quality products. His pen company Schon DSGN has been successfully manufacturing pens in the United States for several years. I have been using a stainless steel Schon DSGN pen for almost 2 years now and I absolutely love it.
The introductory watch model, The Dot, is a reasonable 38mm which fits comfortably on my small 6" wrist but is large enough not to look out of place on ordinary 7-8" wrists as well. The Dot will be available in a limited run of 100 watches each with a NOS Doxa Swiss made movement. The movements are completely refurbished and installed in the cases which are manufactured in the United States.
The Dial, Hands, and case are all hand finished in Ian's studio and are made to order so some customization is available.
The price is more than what you would pay for a mass produced manual wind watch but that is to be expected when you get hand finishing and the level of attention offered by Schon Horology.
