Amazing Custom Engraving!

Kindler & Thorpe.

This company does some of the most amazing engraving I've seen! They customize cases from every brand from Officini Panerai, Hamilton to Rolex. Below is the companies profile from their official website.

K&T was established in 2010 by two long standing business associates Herman Kindler and Paul Thorpe.

Herman Kindler was born in 1937 and lives in Munich along with his family. He is a keen collector of modern, sports and vintage Rolex watches and his collection is believed to be one of the finest in Europe.

Herman is a retired civil pilot and businessman and still flies his own light aircraft when time permits. He has studied Bavarian history, art and architecture.

"Having collected and studied Rolex watches for more than 50 years I consider that what we are about to achieve will go down in horological history".

Paul Thorpe has been in the fine watch business since 1975 after being introduced to the business by his parents.

Born in 1961, Paul lives with his family in Sussex and spends much of his time in London around the horology scene. He is vastly experienced with most high end watch brands.

He has a keen eye for rare antiquities and has studied British Heraldry, early English engravings, silversmithing and British hallmarks.

His ambition is to leave a horological legacy that survives for hundreds of years, just like many of the fine objects that he has owned, admired and studied.

"It is my sincere hope that collectors will be holding our watches in a hundred years time, admiring them, in the same manner in which we admire the fine work of previous generations."
