Heuer 510.501 Chronograph glass fixed by Peter Gernsberger – RLX5513:
Used, abused and finally I fucked up the glass by dropping it twice on the floor. So this tough dude was on rest for about half a year now. On my recent trip to Frankfurt I was glad to meet Peter Gernsberger from RLX5513. He said he can fix it, so I gave him the chrono without any receipt and hardly knowing him, apart from some messages and spending some hours with him on that day. Precious to me, not just be-cause of it´s “steetvalue”. Peter fixed the Heuer within a bit more than 24 hours. No worries about the chrono being lost by DHL and probably to see my face in joy and disbelieve when he gave it back to me. Agreed was he will fix it within 2 weeks due to his busy schedule. The surprise hit me without any clue.
I´m hardly able to thank him enough for that favour. But in the trustful network of friends and friends of friends which I expanded also via be-cause there are ways to payback “debts” and favours.
Nicely put into words the Overview from their website:
With the help of a traditional knitwear manufacturer based in the German Swabian Mountains, vintage fashion aﬁcionado Peter Plotnicki revived the “old way of crafting clothes”.
Driven by his passion for traditional fabrication processes, he and the team created a collection garments solely made by 1920s-1950s circular knitting machines. All tops are based on authentic working man’s apparel ranging from the ﬁrst decades of the 20th century to army shirts of the sixties — some slightly modiﬁed, some copied from the original piece down to the last seam.
Peter Plotnicki sets great store by the label “Made in Germany“: the trimming’s cotton fabrics, buttons, labels, hangtags, and packaging are German-made.
High quality traditional products — manufactured in Germany — without compromises!
