I never owned a car for such a long time! 9 years! I just made 60, 000 kilometers with it. And the magic is still here, like the very first day I took the steering wheel. Vintage cars can be a nightmare. This Volvo never let me down, on the road...Story

Alpine A 110: My second stage of improvements is done.

Avatar
amanico
I will basically have four stages. The first stage, I already reported, was about the chassis, mainly: I put the Chassis of the S version in my Legende: Bigger anti roll bars, stiffer suspensions, new light rims, different geometry settings, and some other delicacies, such as a light lithium battery... The second stage is more mechanical: four changes have just been made, in July: - A titanium exhaust, which has a superb sound ( 89 Db with the closed valves, 102 Db with the open valves ), which is very nice ... ...Story

Patek Philippe Moonphase

Avatar
Horology_Ancienne
Vintage Patek references up until the 3970/3940 boasted a very rich enamel moonphase with handcrafted accompanying gold stars and moon disc. For reference, slide 2 of this post shows a 2499 moonphase and slide 1 is of a 3970 moonphase. The enamel moonphase of the 2499 is a very rich navy blue that has a wonderful and radiating texture. The blue is engraved and filled with the gold stars and moons so they don’t sit on top of the disc...Story

An in-depth and on the wrist review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner.

Avatar
amanico
As you know, the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner was issued one year ago, in September 2020, more precisely. I have always been surprised by the timing issue of a diving watch by Jaeger Lecoultre. Indeed, to me, it would have been more appropriate to release the first watches at the beginning of the summer, or late spring, to offer the possibility to their owners to enjoy it in the best time of the year, and not just after summer... So, it took me ten months before receiving one, on loan, for an .....Story

A few words about the Patek Philippe Calatrava 5296 Limited Edition Hausmann

Avatar
foversta
The Patek Philippe boutique in Rome has quickly become one of the most popular locations on Via Condotti since its opening in 2019. Located on the former site of the Hausmann multi-brand boutique, it is of course managed by the retailer's team. The reception on the ground floor gives access to the lift to the seventh heaven... in fact the first floor, which includes the shop windows, the points of sale and the watchmaker's workshop...Story

Hands on review of the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Limited Edition Rome Boutique

Avatar
foversta
The Hublot boutique in Rome opened in 2019. It is ideally located, almost opposite the Trinità dei Monti stairs (the Spanish Stairs) and a few steps from Via Condotti. Unsurprisingly, Hublot presented a limited edition watch dedicated to this boutique a year later. As a lover of Rome, I tend to have a very subjective point of view about anything that refers in any way to the Eternal City...Story

Hands on review of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Tourbillon in steel

Avatar
foversta
No one can deny it: Vacheron Constantin's Overseas collection is enjoying growing success and the waiting lists for the various models are getting longer and longer. There are several reasons for this phenomenon. First of all, there is a very specific market context. The rising interest in versatile, practical watches with styles derived from the models created in the 1970s by famous designers such as Gérald Genta or Jorg Hysek has led to a shift in demand from collectors who are tired of waiting forever .....Story
