G. gerlach watches

Post by koimaster » March 11th 2018, 11:08am

The idea of a foundation was born during some long conversations about the Polish industry, design and products.

We realised, that even though many products are produced in Poland, very few of those products were invented and designed in our country. Poland is one of the largest manufacturers of cars in Europe – so what if all of those cars were designed abroad.They’re just made in Poland. The same goes for airplanes, fridges, TVs and many more items.

Poland has one of the lowest factors of money spent on research and development in relation to a single citizen or the GDP. Our economy is not innovative – its just reproductive.

What’s happening with young inventors and engineers? Supposedly, we are so creative. Where are those ideas? Is it easy to develop a new, innovative idea nowadays? How can we help the Polish engineers and designers get recognition for their work?

And most importantly – the promotion of a country is most effective by associating products with the given country. The more innovative, advanced, good looking the product is, the stronger the association with the country it was made in. Ikea, Lego, Nokia, Mercedes-Benz, Sony – those keywords describe not only companies, but also the countries of their origin.

This is how the idea of creating a foundation was born. An institution,which will help to promote the Polish technical innovation and help Polish designs come to life. We want to show that both in Poland and abroad, products with the proud „Made in Poland” are of the highest quality and we can be proud of them.

We also want to support Polish engineers, technicians, specialists in design and ergonomy and help them put their ideas into production.

We chose our patron to be a Polish industrialist, who has produced measuring equipment and manometers of highest quality in his factory. More information you can find on our website

Mostly Sea-Gull and Seiko movements. Bit of a pity, that they didn't develop any movement of their own.
Then again, even the Polish watches of the 1950s and 1960s (Błonie/Blonex, Bałtyk) used movements by Poljot, so I don't really mind them using Japanese and Chinese ones now.

I like the "Squadron 303", with the design clearly based on the Omega 6B/159 milwatch.

Looks like they manage to cover the market for vintage-style watches, sports watches, as well as for Wagnerianly and Ozymandianly ghey watches. Commendable approach to diversification.

Slightly more tempting than Balticus, watches by whom usually have a low-grade Miyota 8215 in a fancy package, for more than 500 euro.

Gerlach has a terrific design team. In my view, one of the best of *any* modern brand.

Once a Pollack went to the State Library of Warsaw, to read the book.
In regards to Mr. Bloke's heritage, I wanted to apologize for this tasteless joke.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

Eeeeasy, Mr. Conjurer. I'm bitching and joking about my folk often enough.

Hey, the Polish Army defeated the Soviet Union in 1920. Their air force was particularly effective.
Two of my great-grandfathers served in the uhlan (cavalry) regiments back then, one fought in the Battle of Warsaw in 1920. As for the air force, you mean it as it was in 1920? Back then, it was indeed well-equipped - some of the aircraft were French and British, some were taken over from the Central Powers.
Speaking of the Battle of Warsaw and the Polish-Soviet War, I've got to tip the hat to the Americans here - there was an entire air force unit (7th Air Escadrille) consisting mostly of American volunteers, two of whom managed to earn the Virtuti Militari - the Polish equivalent of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
