Steven Holtzman founded Maitres du Temps (i.e. Masters of Time) in 2005 to create a brand that enabled some of the most acknowledged individual watchmakers to overcome their own technical and aesthetic limitations and collectively develop timepieces that they never would have conceived on their own.

This is one of the most unique high-end daily wear timepieces I think I have ever seen. From Maitres du Temps, this is the Chapter Two TCR watch. “TCR” stands for triple calendar round. This is the (sorta) round-cased version of the original Chapter Two watch that has a tonneau style case. The triple calendar part of the name refers to the fact that the movement has an annual calendar and displays the date, day of the week, and month.
What do the Maitres du Temps Chapter Three Reveal and the MB&F Legacy Machine Number 1 watches have in common? First of all, they both celebrate high-end independent watch makers. Second, they are collaborative works based mostly on the efforts of two men. The MB&F LM1 combines the talents of Jean-Francois Mojon and Kari Voutilainen, […]
Round watches are certainly in again this year. Well round watches are pretty much ALWAYS in – though for high-end brand Maitres du Temps a 42mm wide round-cased watch is a bit unexpected. Nevertheless, that is exactly what the new Chapter Three Reveal watch looks like. For their third creation Maitres du Temps goes super […]
Even some of Maitres du Temps’ dream team of designers didn’t think this could be done. How do you take a watch like the Chapter One with its top and bottom mounted cylinders and make it round? The tonneau shaped version is large enough as it is. You might be able to make it square, […]
A little while ago I got the opportunity to have some hands-on time with the venerable Maitres du Temps Chapter One watch. The experience was incredible, as a timepiece like this really stands out above and beyond most other super luxury watches. It is really all the little things when taken together that are awe […]
Putting together a watch like the Maitres du Temps Chapter One or Two is not an easy effort. You don’t just do a quick drawing and get it over with or pick pieces from a parts bin. At the same time you can’t just draw it up in a CAD program and then build it […]
Appreciating the Maitres du Temps Chapter Two watch gets even easier seeing stunning live video of the watch. Founder and owner Steven Holtzman discusses the luxury timepiece in this new video by aBlogtoRead.com content partner TheTimeTv.com. He takes a good approach to discussing the “volume” line (still only about 200 a year) of Maitres du […]
The second watch from the still new Maitres du Temps watch brand is the Chapter Two (which of course has followed the Chapter One). The term “triple date” comes from the fact that the calendar features, 1) the day, 2) date, and 3) month. Interestingly enough, the watch went from ultra complex, to something more […]
New watch brands are appearing more frequently these days, and I am not sure what that means. Have existing brands run their course? Or does starting a new brand give a special value to a watch? The reality is that many brands have the same (or some of the same people) behind them. If you […]
