Hands on review of the Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers - La Caravelle 1950

Avatar
foversta
It is a little paradoxical to speak of a watch that evokes the great explorations in full confinement period. But I couldn't wait any longer to present this unique Vacheron Constantin piece, Les Cabinotiers - La Caravelle (The Caravel) 1950. I have always thought that the best from the Geneva manufacture was expressed when it brought an artistic touch into its watches . It has a real know-how which allows it to combine the charm and the poetry of the crafts with the rigor and the technique of watchmaking...Story

2020 Collection: Breguet 7137 and 7337.

Avatar
amanico
This year, Breguet decided to revisit these two references from the Classique Line. The 7137 and 7337 are both available in white gold and rose gold. The white gold 7137 and 7337 come with a blue dial, while the rose gold has a more classic silver dial. These 2 references have a 39 mm case, 8, 65 mm high for the 7137, 9, 9 mm for the 7337, with fluted side case...Story

Dear Friends, at this time of global concerns, which are causing travel restrictions all over the globe and particularly in my beautiful Italy, what can be better than taking all together a two-stop, virtual trip to Rome, thanks to our favorite watch brand? So let me briefly present to you these two new, superb Patek rare handcrafts, both less than 6 months old and both 'pieces unique': Reference 5089G-081, whose enamel dial in 22 different colors brings us to Piazza di Spagna and the iconic Trinita' dei ... ...Story

Covid-19 means it's rubber strap time!

After lots of hand washing and cooking while locked down in NYC these last few days I finally dug up the rubber strap for the EL2. This strap is awesome! I can't believe I never even took it out of the bag until now 🙄. This is how luxury rubber straps should be done. The biggest surprise is that the straps are vented! The rubber has recesses in the underside that vent out the sides of the strap, wow...Story

Hands on review of the Girard-Perregaux Quasar Light

Avatar
foversta
Girard-Perregaux unveiled the Quasar during the 2019 edition of Watches & Wonders Miami (that seems very far away ...). This watch can be defined as the reinterpretation of the Neo-Tourbillon Skeleton with a sapphire case. The ambition of the manufacture was clear: it was a question of giving a contemporary dimension to what makes the identity of the brand, the 3 bridges, in order to give it a new dynamic and rejuvenate its image. The Quasar is undoubtedly a beautiful watch with a significant contrast between .....Story

Dear friends I am sure you all have to deal with the situation that is going on in the world right now - one way or another. We are all affected to various degrees by what has happened and what lays before us. I apologize for my absence in the last few days, as I have myself been very busy, trying to reorganize (most of) my life and plan the best I can for the situation ahead of us. Discussing expensive watches, in this moment of global events, can seem like a meaningless and superficial undertaking - when .....Story

Lecoultre Compass Camera.

Avatar
amanico
As some of you may not know that, Jaeger Lecoultre sometimes explored other fields than watches only. They made some tools such as the millionometer which allows a great accuracy in the making of some watch parts and some other things such as this Compass Camera. This camera was not conceived and designed by the Company from the Vallée de Joux, but by Noel Pemberton Billing, who was an adventurer and a businessman among other things. But the project was achieved by Jaeger Lecoultre for the Company Compass .....Story

Patek Philippe Chronograph 5070G: 10 years of ownership!

Avatar
amanico
On the 16h of March 2020, it is 10 years that I own this reference, the 5070, in white gold. The first time I saw it, it was in the window display of the Paris Boutique, in 2005, and it was love at first sight. Curiously, it stayed a good month in the window display before someone bought it. I missed the opportunity to get it, but, it was just the beginning of the story...Story
