Box Play part #1: Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E 871

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
Let’s start small, with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E 871. Since I finally got the last detail sorted on my E 871, I thought it would be appropriate to start with this one. You may read about it here: We who grow up during the 1970’s will always have a soft spot for these old TV shaped watches… Growing up in Sweden, there were only two TV channels and only one serious sports program, “Sportspegeln”. The blur thing to the right was their show logo… We have seen it from many members here, posting big, bulky, .....Story

Patek Philippe Split Seconds Chronograph, Ref 5370. A quick view.

Avatar
amanico
There are some complications which make watch aficionados dream: The Minute Repeater is certainly one of them, a several axis tourbillon, perhaps, a sophisticated perpetual calendar, an Equation of Time, an astronomical watch, and, last but not least, the Split-Seconds Chronograph. I have a fully intact souvenir of one of my horological discussions with a gentleman in charge of the product development for Jaeger Lecoultre, some ten years ago and he taught me that one of the most " complicated complication ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Rexhep Rexhepi Chronomètre Contemporain

Avatar
foversta
One of the most complicated exercises in the High Horology segment is the creation of a classic three-hand watch. Indeed, such a project seems to offer little room for maneuver both in aesthetic and technical points of view and it appears as a main difficulty for any watchmaker to bring a truly new vision of the topic. Yet I have the feeling that Rexhep Rexhepi has succeeded in his project thanks to his Chronomètre Contemporain which has just been presented during the last edition of Baselworld. This watch .....Story

One week with the Black '60A

Avatar
Joepny
It has been a joy to wear this 5960A. One thing that has become even more clear to me is that watch dimensions on paper vs. on the wrist have many other factors in play. 40mm width x 48mm length x 13.5mm thickness...Story

Welcome to the big Tudor Black Bay fashion show!

Avatar
Marcus Hanke
When I purchased the Tudor Black Bay Steel + Gold two weeks ago, a major factor in my immediate fascination for that watch came from the pre-aged leather strap that perfectly matched the matte golden elements of the case itself. Unfortunately, it was rather short, so I decided to order one in XL, which will take its time to arrive, unfortunately. Packed in the watch box also came a very nice NATO strap: This, too, is suffering from the length issue, but I did not order a longer original strap, since the after ... ...Story

Patek Philippe ref: 5227 A quick Review

Avatar
Miranda
With all the noise from the grand complications, Aquanaut hysteria and Nautilus obsession, it is easy to forget perhaps, the most elegant and probably most important piece in the collection- the , automatic Calatrava with date. Ref 3445 Its origins go back to 1961, with the ref 3445. This was the first waterproof, automatic wrist watch with date from the house, and the movement was “amagnetic”. It was the only watch you would need most of the time...Story

foversta
Thanks to the team of the Cartier boutique of Paris Opéra, I could attend the event dedicated to the new Santos collection which took place in another Cartier boutique of Paris: the one located on the Champs-Elysées. Actually, I was very happy to be invited for several reasons. The first one obviously to attend the event by itself: there is a kind of Cartier Know how when it comes to this type of party. Second reason to spend the evening inside the Champs-Elysées boutique...Story
