Happy Second Anniversary MOS!

 

 WE CAN THINK of no better occasion on which to thank you, the loyal Mechanics of Style reader, than the second anniversary of our launch. 

MoS’s mission is simple: to complement the lifestyle that goes along with owning a Girard-Perregaux — accentuating, that is, the cast of a polymath’s mind. Often, the best way to describe MoS is to call it “everything but the watch” (though we write about those every now and again, too).

In short, MoS is an exploration of connoisseurship — a mutual journey on which we’re honored to have you along. Thanks for being there with us for two years . . . and counting.  —The Editors
