Welcome To Quill & Pad
Welcome to Quill & Pad, a professional and welcoming online destination aimed at all levels of horological enthusiasts. If this is your first visit or you are new to the art of watchmaking, you may want to read this before going on to peruse the rest of the site.
Quill & Pad focuses on high-end watchmaking − also known as haute horlogerie − where we feel the most interesting developments are taking place. This doesn’t mean we will ignore interesting developments taking place in the lower-priced segments, it just means that we will generally be discussing the compelling and the artistic rather than the everyday, for the simple reason that that’s what interests us the most.
If you are curious about the name Quill & Pad, it came about as we started with the premise of offering old-school journalism published on a modern digital platform. “Quill” sounded like a good candidate to represent traditional writing, and we toyed with “iPad” to epitomize the modern, but “Quill and iPad” just didn’t work for us. So it became “Quill and Pad.”
We hope you enjoy our new horological home as much as we do. Welcome to Quill & Pad.
With our very best regards, Elizabeth and Ian
