Tribute to the Banana Vs. L’ocean
If there is one “Boutique” brand that has achieved a cult status over the years that is CREPAS. At a rate of one edition per year and 300 (+/-100) units every time it is no wonder that in the resale market these fetch at least their sale price and in many cases go well over that. Finding older models in unworn/perfect conditions can cost you double of what they initially where.
There are two of my favourite “fun summer beach watches” are without a doubt the Tribute to the Banana – 1969 and the L’ocean by CREPAS. Despite being very “loud” in their style, especially the Banana, these are surprisingly elegant. Mixing modern day manufacturing and 60’s historical designs surely has a lot to do with this.
