F.P. Journe Monopusher Split Seconds Chronograph – a Movement Analysis

Avatar
skyeriding
Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist. Credit where its due that FP Journe made a new split-second watch for Only Watch 2017, and (unlikely) might see the possibility that this may appear as a regular production piece! With the recent announcement of Only Watch 2017, it comes as no surprise to expect a feast of interesting timepieces up for viewing. Typically, most brands ... ...Story

Just one picture: the "Karl" - Royal Oak.

Avatar
HSTE
Karl Lagerfeld And His Famous All Black Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Cheers, HSTE I wonder that it has not been more widely discussed yet in specialist Forums or Blogs that Karl Lagerfeld is a very long time owner of an AP Royal Oak Jumbo A-Series. First hand evidence is given by himself in an interview in the "AD - Architerctural Digest" Sept/Oct 2011, page 64-66. KL is asked, whether he has an obsession about particular design objects. His answer (losely translated from the original French interview): (...) .....Story

Hands on review of Karsten Frässdorf's Spirograph Tourbillon

Avatar
foversta
I have known Karsten Frässdorf for many years, in fact since the adventure of the Fabrication des Montres Normandes (FDMN) whose first steps had been presented at the Salon Belles Montres 2008 in Paris. Time flies! There is no need to beat around the bush at this point: I know that the name of Karsten Frässdorf is associated with brands (FDMN, Heritage Watch Company) or projects (Sauterelle de Chronoswiss) that have disappeared prematurely, even before any chance to see the watches on the shelves. All of ... ...Story

PRE BASEL 2019: Breguet Classique 5177 Grand Feu Blue Enamel.

Avatar
amanico
Here are some pictures I received from my contact at Breguet of this year novelty, the Breguet Classique 5177 Grand Feu Blue Enamel. My first feeling is very positive, and I think this is the kind of watch which deserves real pictures ( which I will take as soon as possible ) and most importantly, which has to be discovered in the " metal ". This is the kind of Breguet I like. The dial and the case have a lot of DNA of the brand, exquisite, refined...Story

Come on, cheer up, little by little we are approaching Spring and a milder weather. And it is during the Spring that classic cars racing events are back to the forefront, including the most famous of them: the Mille Miglia, which will make its traditional loop from Brescia to Brescia via Rome in May. The opportunity is therefore right to wear during the competition one of the Chopard Mille Miglia Racing Colours watches that were presented last year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the brand's involvement ... ...Story

SIHH 2019. Audemars-Piguet Code 11.59 line. Some thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
When Audemars-Piguet unveiled the 11.59 line, some weeks ago, the least we can say is that it received a cold welcome. I for one don't think it is justified. And I suggest we reconsider our feelings about it. First of all, the 11.59 is not one watch, or two, but a whole line of 6 watches: Time Only, Chronograph, Perpetual Calendar, manual winding Tourbillon Openworked, Flying Tourbillon Automatic and Minute Repeater...Story

SIHH 2019: Ulysse Nardin

Avatar
foversta
Ulysse Nardin was in my opinion one of the most convincing brands of the last SIHH. It has indeed managed to offer attractive new products while maintaining a certain pricing moderation, thus pursuing a strategic orientation initiated in recent years. This successful cocktail of audacity and reason can be summed up in one letter: X. X as Freak X...Story
