The first link for Artego watches is just a list of links to other watch sites. Dead end.

The second on the list, Bali ha'i watches has a link that says "account suspended".

Third on the list is also a dead end for bathys watch.

Benarus, fourth on the list, is still going strong with their dive watches. Including that hideous Mako that looks like the mouth of a lamprey to me.

Boschett still has a functional website.


more later.......

Still in business

Damasko, Dievas, DeepBlue, Halios, Lüm-tec, Magrette, Mk II, NFW, Ocean7, Resco, SAS, UTS, Steinhart, Wilson, Zenton.

Not in business
Debaufre, DWatch, Helson, Irreantum, Korsbek, Kremke, Orsa, Roguewarrior, Serket,

Not sure
Kazimon(probably out of business), Prometheus has a website but everything says 'sold out', Sonic watches is no longer a German company but a US based one that sells cheap smart watches.

The real and more interesting question is how many of those brands did/do you own?

I counted 9, none were terrible.

I own none of the above microbrands.

I have a watch from Elliot Brown: https://elliotbrownwatches.com/

Undone watches: https://www.undone.com/hk/

Dan Henry: https://danhenrywatches.com/products/19 ... hronograph

Islander watch: https://www.longislandwatch.com/Islande ... s/2006.htm

No complaints with any of them.

I don't remember the details but I believe Debaufre became Steinhart. I own a few micros, no complaints here. I am selective enough that several of the micro brand models I did have were sold for more than I paid.

From what I remember Steinhart had a legal issue over the name then changed to Debaufre, then later became Steinhart again.
