Hands on review of the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Fragment

Avatar
foversta
I would like to come back to one of the watches in my collection: the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Fragment. In fact, beyond the fact that I appreciate it very much, it symbolizes, in my opinion, a very interesting approach of the neo-retro style. Tag Heuer could have been content to clone the reference Carrera 2447 NT which was used as inspiration for this model but the brand decided to collaborate with the Japanese designer Hiroshi Fujiwara to give it a touch of originality and a more contemporary atmosphere. .....Story

Hello dear friends and Hublotista, The Geneva Days, the LVMH Group's annual presentation of new products, which took place parallel to the SIHH in Geneva, is history. Geneva Days will now be replaced by LVMH Watch Week, which is currently taking place in Dubai. And Hublot again presented great new products. The really big technical novelty was not there (they are traditionally shown in Basel), but there were some exciting new products...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Vintage Double Date Ref 2701. Some pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
We know the Vintage Jaeger Lecoultre Triple Dates very well here, as several of us own or owned one. The Triple Date is certainly one of the nicest vintage Jaeger Lecoultre with its tear drop lugs, its superb movement and its timeless dial. Add the " big case ", which is 36 mm, and you have a hit. Ref 2721: Less well known and sought after, but absolutely charming, the Double Date which was in production from 1935 to 1945 is a sweet candy...Story

Vintage Rolex Booklets - Spotting the fakes

Avatar
Bill
Vintage Rolex booklets are great part of a full set. It adds another dimension to how the watch was intended to be used. The booklets are half owners manual and half advertising presentations. Sometimes we are lucky to find full sets from original owners and those are the standards that we go by...Story

Hands on review of the Hamilton Khaki Aviation Pilot Pioneer Mechanical

Avatar

Hamilton is a brand that works very well within the Swatch Group. Thanks to its history and its positioning, it offers watches at reasonable prices that appeal to both watchmaking enthusiasts looking for reeditions of classic models and customers who wish to acquire well-made mechanical watches without breaking the bank. It cannot be said enough: Hamilton's role is fundamental to the Swatch Group. The production volumes are not those of Tissot or even Longines but Hamilton has a key mission: to give taste .....Story

A few thoughts about the Panerai Radiomir 3 days Acciaio 47mm with brown dial

Avatar
foversta
I had the opportunity to see again the Panerai Radiomir 3 days Acciaio 47mm with brown dial a few days ago. This Radiomir with bears the reference PAM687 is one of the recent Panerai watches that I prefer. It was unveiled in the pre-SIHH 2017 context as part of a limited series of 1,000 pieces with its alter ego with black dial, the PAM685 (which is less appealing to me). In fact, every time I see it, I feel that I like it a lot...Story

Our first 2020 Parisian GTG with our new member Waitlisted!

Avatar
amanico
James, aka Waitlisted, decided on a " coup de tête " to come for a few days in Paris and asked if it was possible to meet some local members. After a few phone calls and private messages, we could organize something spontaneous with the usual suspects which was quite a performance since it was Xmas Holidays. At the notable exception of Fx who couldn't come, we had James, Bill, Mahesh, Rascal, Mike H and myself, plus 2 wonderful wives, N and I. A nice place, known by some of you: And some very cool watches, .....Story

We are in the first day of 2020... but I would like to come back to one of my best memories of 2019! Actually, I had the privilege to attend a prestigious football game at Manchester, in the famous Old Trafford stadium: the BIG GAME between Manchester United and Liverpool. Actually, this opportunity came thanks to Tag Heuer which is the current sponsor of the Red Devils team. When Tag Heuer proposed me this quick trip to Manchester, I couldn't resist...Story

Hands on review of the Audemars Piguet Automatic Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin 26586IP

Avatar
foversta
We could guess it, the prototype RD#2 presented during the SIHH 2018 was not going to remain without continuation and it is in all logic that the final and marketed version was presented a year later. It was certainly not a small matter because there is always a big difference between the creation of prototypes and the homogeneous production of a certain number of pieces especially when the watch we are talking about is the thinnest automatic perpetual calendar in the world . In any case, as long as the watch ... ...Story
