Some people say it really hasn't happened without pictures, so here is proof of my visit this afternoon with Olivier watch founder/designer Roland Oliver Tetenbaum.

Roland was kind enough to spend some time with me discussing watches in general and specifically the Olivier Watch Company and the upcoming Olivier Bronze Diver. I got the chance to try on the prototypes, and hear Roland's thoughts about his design. I now know that watch designing and watch building are in his blood, and that he has the passion and drive to transform his ideas into reality.

Be advised that the designs will be produced in limited quantities, so pre-ordering is advised.

If these prototypes are any indication, I believe you can expect good things from Roland and the Olivier Watch Company, now, and in the future.

They look great, but I don't care for the open date aperture @ all, otherwise I'd be on it..Olivier Watches 831531

I need to add a Bronze to my collection..& @ these prices he's offering it's a good buy IMO.

Good luck to all who r pre-ordering

I prefer no date at all, and Roland and I discussed it. I found that while the triple date window is prominent in pictures it's not nearly so in the metal. Roland likes the minimalist look, so a no date model may appear in the future. Very Happy

Man oh man, this is just fantastic Rick ! Very Happy What a nice comparison here. You can really see the design, along with
quality of the Oliviers. The look of the cases, but also the bezels is very rugged. While at the same time nice, and
classy. AWESOME dials, and straps TOO !

Must have been something special having the chance to actually talk with, and meet up with a watch company owner
like that. It's neat hearing how someone like Roland comes up with ideas, and then actually makes them a reality sir.
Thanks so much for the pics, and everything ! Smile

Thanks Tom,

You will be hearing more from Roland and the Olivier brand. He is a man on a mission, and as he is only 25 years old he has the energy ( and time ) to accomplish it.

Thank YOU Rick ! Smile

All of this is OUTSTANDING to hear about. Can't wait to see what Roland has up his sleeve over the
coming year, and years with Olivier.
