As a fan of their work, we try to promote the products of boutique German watch maker Temption whenever possible. The very niche brand offers up some unique creations which we’ve loved in the past. New for 2013 Temption will debut the simple CM01 watch. A minimalist three-hand automatic with a serious cyclops magnifier for the date.

German brand Temption is a boutique watch maker that I like to follow. With very few new releases each year, this is one of the ultimate “in the know” brands that won’t require your life savings to buy. For 2012 the main new release is a slight update/variation on the long standing CGK range. This […]
In a little room underneath Basel I sit with the humble and talented Mr. Klaus Ulbrich of Temption Germany. Temption is one of those underdog watch brands that I have been rooting for, for years. I have written about their watches a lot on aBlogtoRead.com – and reviewed a few as well (such as the […]
Temption is one of my favorite boutique German watch brands, and will release this new version of their CGK collection soon. The CGK205 is the follow up to the CGK204 (based on the CGK203 – which I reviewed here). The collection houses a decorated Swiss ETA Valjoux 7751 automatic movement (a 7750 with an annual […]
I have a really strong affinity to the small, independent German watch maker Temption. I have two of their watches, the CGK203 and the Cameo (click on those links for my reviews). Each year they try to release a new model, and I eager await what they have to share. Last year it was the […]
Before looking at a Temption watch you need to understand what goes into their watches…
Temption watches will present a twist on the still new Cameo model at Baselworld this year. The new model is called the Cameo S (for silver) and has the popular new Cameo watch with a revised face. The dial is silver colored with different hands and some red minute markers to add color to the […]
Temption and Fortis are two admirable watch makers who share nary a sneer or historic competition. Interestingly, they now have what I consider to be closely matched competing watches with the new Temption Cameo and the Fortis Square. Through what I believe might be no fault of either company, a battle between these watches now […]
Last summer I told you about the new watch from Temption called the Cameo. It is their first square cased watch, and certainly unique. As is the case with most new watch announcements, the Cameo was announced long before actual release. Well, Temption has just announced that the Cameo is finally available. Actually, the watches […]
You are in luck! One of my favorite watches (that I happen to own) is available on eBay right now. If I didn’t already have this watch, I’d most likely not inform you and try to get it myself. This is a rare Temption CGK203 watch that I reviewed here. Temption is a German based […]
Tag Heuer’s marketing slogan is “Swiss Avant Garde…” Maybe I understand avant garde differently, but while a lot of Tag Heuer watches are really nice, I would not consider most of them to be avant garde. The term avant garde is one I use with particular frequency, and the concept is simple. The phrase itself […]
Though I have mentioned Temption Cherubin watches before, I’ve never featured the Cherubin GDA model. Another limited edition (500 pieces) Cherubin model. This is likely to be one of the most sophisticated Cherubin watches, and this model is beautiful with its red trimmed parts. The watch also comes in different trims including blue, green, and […]
About once a year or so, maybe less, a Temption CGK203 watch becomes available for purchase on the market. The good news is that people who own these watches tend to be serious watch lovers who treat the attractive German watches with the pride and care they deserve. That does not suggest that Temption watches […]
Klaus Ulbrich of Temption watches in Germany is moving on up, Stuttgart Style. This lovely little watch maker’s new villa could be right out of Santa Monica, CA circa 1987. New digs for Temption likely mean more employees, higher production, and more watches, all good things from a company that consistently keeps providing up good […]
Due to the fact that Temption is such a small watch maker, you don’t see new offerings from them with any frequency. Instead, you are lucky that they even make enough watches at all so that you can hope to own one someday. Temption watches are an incredibly high value at their relatively low prices. […]
This is probably the first time I have ever seen ones of these watches for sale. There are perhaps a few thousand of them in the world for the entire Cora series. This diamond studded limited edition is one of only300 on the planet. I would classify the Temption Cora as a woman’s watch that […]
