A few words about the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Perpetual Calendar

Avatar
foversta
I had the opportunity during my last stay in Geneva to discover in preview a new Girard-Perregaux Laureato which will be officially presented at the next SIHH. This watch will propose a complication that is not present today in the current Laureato collection: the perpetual calendar. However, it is not the first time in the history of the brand since the Laureato EVO3 gathered a chronograph with a perpetual calendar. Of course, it was out of the question for Girard-Perregaux to reproduce a clone...Story

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Where the unusual is commonplace – revisited (again)

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
From the Jaeger-LeCoultre 125 Year Jubilé 1958: In 2011 I posted this ad: English – “ Where the unusual is commonplace”… In 2016 I posted this ad: Spanish – “Los altos lugares de la alta precisión”… …and said that “if I ever find this ad in a third language I might pass”… Yeah right, we all know that would never happen! So now, 2018 I post this ad: German – “Ein Hochland der Präzision”… One interesting detail here is that the watches are not drawn as on the other two, but actual photos of the watches. So ... ...Story

Lange und Sohne Langematik Anniversary. It could have been for ten years in my collection...

Avatar
amanico
If only it didn't left me in some sad circumstances. I was hunting this watch for several years before being able to find one in Paris, on the 7th of November... 2008. I was totally crazy for that Langematik, for some good reasons: Its 37 mm case, which is big enough for me, a platinum case which offers a nice density, the superb enamel dial with its gorgeous Red XII and a very pleasant depth and warmth, and a nice looking automatic movement with a three quarter rotor...Story

Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement – some history and facts

Avatar
crown comfort
Friends, There has been some recent discussions here in the forum on the Constant Escapement and claims on by whom it was developed as well as speculations that the CE is not going to be further developed. Let me be clear, I will not participate in any future speculations as the future by nature is not determined and there are always events that can change even the most solid plans. But as far as plans are concerned, GP does plan a future for the CE and there are developments ongoing. Whether we will already .....Story

Identifying future classic Rolex from the 1990-2018 era - Part 6/6: Rolex Submariner 168000

Avatar
Baron - Mr Red
The Rolex Submariner 168000 represents a different style of addition to the “future classic” concept. The 168000 is, in fact, essentially identical to the Submariner 16800 that had been produced in very high numbers. The 168000, however, differs in two very specific ways that make it one of the rarest production Submariners ever made. Not “THE” rarest, but certainly one of them...Story

Hands on review of the Richard Mille RM35-02 Rafael Nadal

Avatar
foversta
Everyone knows the power of Rafael Nadal's shots, whether on the forehand or backhand sides. So when I learned that the Spanish champion was going to play Roland Garros 2016 to conquer his tenth title on the Paris clay with the RM35-02 on the wrist, I was starting to be worried! But yes, it was the first Richard Mille automatic watch dedicated to Rafael Nadal. So, I wondered if the winding mass would not damage the movement because of an excessive rotation speed after a big topspin shot? There wasn't any ... ...Story

Revisiting all the History of JLC Diving watches is a passionate Dive into the Beauty. Even if I'm a Polaris Lover, there is not only the Polaris to consider, as some other very interesting watches existed, before and after this Cult Watch. For those interested by the Polaris, I will brievely speak of it, here, as I did a Review you can read here: The main purpose of this post is to : 1/ Give some justice to these models which lived and still live in the shadow of the Polaris. 2/ To enhance the fact that .....Story

A visit to the Omega Manufactures. Part II: Bienne.

Avatar
amanico
After the technical aspects discussed in Part I with the visit of the Manufacture in Saint Imier, we went to Bienne. There, we could see how the watches are totally assembled, controlled and packaged, but don't expect pictures, as photos are not allowed. A lot of processes are made by robots, and we saw them working, but humans are still present, at the key stages. But I had a secret hope, when coming to Bienne.....Story
