I’ve been keeping my eye on this Dutch brand for some time now. I didn’t had the time to delve in to it until a short while ago. “Fromanteel” from Amsterdam. A watch brand from my home town. My first encounter with Fromanteel was about 3 years ago while walking around in “De Bijenkorf” Amsterdam, what stood out was one of their watches with a yellow crown, something special, something different. At the end of this blog you will receive a little present from me.

Before I conclude, I must write down a few more thoughts. The arrival of my watch was accompanied by an unique packaging, which alone is reason enough to make a purchase, I assure you. Encased within a splendid leather case, the watch exudes exceptional quality even before unveiling its contents. Surrounding the leather casing, there is a distinctive “Jute zak” (the translation eludes me, but in the photo, it appears as a beige-colored bag). Those bags were once used in Amsterdam’s packing houses, reflecting Fromanteel’s meticulous attention to detail. A commendable touch, indeed.
