Since I write for WorldTempus (bi-weekly chronicles), I receive one of their publications by the name of ‘Revolution’. I guess the watch adepts know about the magazine 🙂 In their latest edition, my eye felt on a photograph of Laurent Picciotto. Mr Picciotto is the owner of Chronopassion, a true heaven for watch freaks. His shop at the rue Saint-Honor?ɬ© in Paris is amazing and filled with watches from Alain Silberstein, Audemars Piguet, De Bethune, Greubel Forsey, Hautlence, MB&F, Richard Mille, Urwerk and many many more. I have to admit that I walked passed this shop a few times, but never entered. I always feel a bit guilty when taking up someone’s time when I am not buying anything anyway. Perhaps you know the feeling (or not). On the other hand, perhaps I should get used to it, since I write about watches for this blog and a few other media.

Anyhows, I just received a mail by Maximilian B?ɬºsser of MB&F, whom I consider friend of FratelloWatches, sending me this great photograph that I just saw a few days ago in the French/European Revolution magazine.

Mr Picciotto’s website (www.chronopassion.fr) is as amazing as this photograph. The website is filled with information and photographs of their haute horlogerie collection and even better, Laurent Picciotto is starring in a few on-line watch videos as well. In his videos, he will give you more information about the watches that Chronopassion carries in their collection. I think this is one of the examples on how a 2009 e-tailer’s watch website should look like.
