"I purchased the first ancient mariner from you a number of years ago…
I have many watches…Uylsse Nardin, Rolex, on from there….but I'll tell you the quality and attention to detail, looks and workmanship in your watches…is so far above these others its almost laughable.  For the heck of it,  I took part in a kickstart of a new company LUXURY watch…I don’t think people understand what luxury means…its not PRICE its workmanship, its what makes the watch.. you all have nailed it.. from many years of work and detail….I enjoy and appreciate my watch more every year…"  R A

d.freemont, the Albatross and "Rhyme of the Ancyent Marinere"

The Albatross is featured on nearly all d.freemont watches… It was taken from the “Rhyme of the Ancyent Marinere”, an epic poem by Samuel Colridge, wherein Coleridge shows the folly of mankind under the influence of superstition. The poem tells of a sea voyage around South America in a 19th century sailing ship…The crew began to debate and argue about the presence of an Albatross that was following the ship. Many of the seamen spoke of the curse of such a bird, while others clung to the ideal that the bird was a mascot of good luck and smooth sailing… However, the Ancient Marinere, leader of the superstitious crew, shot the bird with a cross-bow. The cruel weather of the south Atlantic with turbulent water and winds proved to support the notion that the Albatross was indeed a bad omen. After the slaughter, the weather turned less hostile and the ship began the upward tack into the South Pacific. Agreement spread among the crew that the bird nearly cost them their lives and the ship itself justified the slaughter. Now, as the Ship and crew enter the more pleasant waters of the Pacific, a reversal of opinion stalks the crew. The wind stops and a calm and silence drift the ship into a dead doldrum. Anger swarms around the Ancyent Marinere for slaughtering the Albatross. Now considered a good omen, the hostile crew tied the dead bird around the Ancyent Marinere’s neck. As the doldrum persists, all the crew does perish, except for the Ancient Marniere who moans the immortal lines, “Water,water everywhere and not a drop to drink”. The poem ends with The Ancyent Marinere’s salvation and divine rescue as he professes to all that will listen - that it is man’s purpose to be kind to man, beast and bird alike. d.freemont believes this to be the noblest calling of man… so he repeats the Albatross image on his watches to reinforce the message time after time.

Customer Comments:
"My compliments on yet another stunning time piece (Voyager).  It was well worth the wait.  I particularly love the contrast between the sumptuous mocha dial, the jet black of the hands and markers, offset by the lustrous steely glow of the engine turned bezel.  Really stunning.  And the dark brown ostrich strap is the perfect compliment, I'm so glad I chose it.  Of course, the glimpse of the watch's internal 'beating heart' - ringed with gold - really makes it an eye stopper.  The teak wood gift box is the perfect housing for this varied and stunning collection.  A cherished collector set!
Thanks so very much!"  TV

"I have some great Seiko divers (SKX 007, 0011, 0013, etc.). But, those are "tool watches”. And, I have some very nice micro brand divers, too. But, my favorite brand is d.freemont. I appreciate the taste and artistic feeling that went into the design of these watches. You may remember my order the year-before-last of several COSC watches for presents when we took the gang to Hawaii. Right now, I am wearing my white-dial Voyager on a d.freemont bracelet. Of all my watches, this watch probably gets the most wrist-time. My Omega tonneau and bracelet in solid gold is second — and my Seiko SKX-011 probably is third. I am an old trial-horse lawyer, and the Voyager gives the right image — classy, but not ostentatious, and vulgar — to jurors (i.e., unlike my solid gold Rolex)."  BW

"The Ancyent Marinere watch I purchased arrived within 3 days! It is stunning, and I am honored to have the opportunity to own a piece of your work. Many of your past customers praise you for maintaining a high standard of quality, value and outstanding service……..and now I know why.  Beautiful workmanship, prompt attention to inquiries, and very fast service. Over the past 25 years, I have collected well over two hundred Swiss watches. Finally, I have my first (of many, I hope) d. freemont watches! Well done. VERY well done. With gratitude and best regards."  DH

"David, just a quick note of thanks. Received my Voyager watch  sooner than expected. This is my third dfreemont watch, and as always, the quality  of this  timepiece and the service have exceeded my expectations. Absolutely love this unique watch. over the years, I have owned Rolex, Ebel ,Tag, Cartier and Mauboussin watches. I can tell in just a few short days that my Voyager will out-perform these expensive watches. Thanks again for the great service and an even greater watch!  All the best" SS

"I absolutely love my new Voyager watch!  It is a fantastic timepiece and a joy to wear. My 2 (soon to be 3) year old daughter loves it as well.  She has seen me wear watches before in the past, but the first time she saw this one, which was literally within minutes of the first time I put it on, it caught her attention and fascinated her.  This is without me even announcing my new watch or drawing any sort of attention to it whatsoever.  I had just merely put it on and was wearing it for the first time. Many thanks also for the great personal service."  SV

"I have purchased 5 of your watches [including Panama, Regulator, and Voyager] and have always been pleased with never a case of buyer's remorse."  BM
