Baselworld 2019: Rolex

Avatar
foversta
Despite its significant production, Rolex presents finally few novelties every year. The ratio of number of novelties / annual overall production must be among the lowest in the industry. A sign doesn't deceive: when I leave Basel, I have a clear vision of what Rolex has presented. On the other hand, I find it difficult to recall with the same precision what the other actors with important production volumes presented...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater Perpetual. A quick review.

Avatar
amanico
After the introduction of the masterpiece of the year, the Gyrotourbillon Five, at the SIHH in January, Jaeger Lecoultre comes back, 4 months after, with another big piece, the Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater Perpetual, which I will call the " Minute Repeater Perpetual ". This new watch is an unexpected challenge. Indeed, you certainly remember what I wrote about Minute Repeaters using automatic watches. In short, I complained about the fact that the Minute Repeater was such a prestigious complication .....Story

A visit at the Paris Breguet Boutique. Part Two: A review on The Breguet Classique Triple Calendar Moon Phase reference 3330.

I had six goals when I visited the Paris Breguet Boutique, and I was lucky to score all of them, thanks to the kind collaboration of the Boutique Team, my contact at Breguet, and Mr Emmanuel Breguet. One of them was to review the Classique 5177 Blue Enamel, which I recently put on line, the other was to see the Ref 3330 and its ancestor. Why the 3330? Simply because it is one of the most exquisite and romantic Breguet watch I know, and, in my opinion, an icon. The one I will show you here is in white gold...Story

I already reviewed this Classique 5177 in white gold with its blue dial, and told you that my feelings were very positive about that watch. Yesterday, I had a meeting at the Breguet Boutique in Paris, with my contact at the Manufacture, and Mr Emmanuel Breguet. I could take some pictures about the Classique 5177, and my feelings were confirmed, it is a really nice watch. Nice, and elegant, with the case proportions which are just perfect for a watch of this kind and of this spirit...Story

The Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar saga started not a long time ago, as the first ones came in 2013, followed in 2016 by the steel case black dialed version which is a star. We had steel versions, rose gold, white gold, all over these last years, with different dials, but this year, the Master Ultra Thin received some deep and special treatment... The Steel Silver grained dial : The Steel Black: First of all, the dial, of course, as it is the main interest of this version: The dial , like for the MUT ... ...Story

SIHH 2019: Lange & Sohne Langematik Perpetual Honey Gold. A quick review

Avatar
amanico
The Langematik Perpetual was a superb watch, and one of the most desirable perpetual calendar since its introduction in 2001. 18 years after, Lange comes back to this watch in a different metal version, honey gold. Honey gold was used by Lange since 2010, with, among others, the 1815 Moon Phase Homage to F.A Lange. This Langematik Perpetual Honey Gold is the 8th watch to use this metal which doesn't only have a very special hue, somewhere between yellow and rose gold, but which also is harder, due to its .....Story

Dear All, With immense pleasure, I announce the completion of the 5131 set of quadruplets !

GLau
This journey of six years is one that I could never have dreamed of ! Along the way involved highs and lows and discovery of my horological preferences. Furthermore, tremendous help and advice from some serious PuristS Patek collectors (KC, JK and Singapore "lurker") and staff members at my AD carried me to this peak! Above all, it was "FBI" that helped me to secure my first love and for that I will always be grateful ! Once I had the G, the enamel dreams or nightmares began and I just blindly charged ahead. ... ...Story

Baselworld 2019: Tudor

Avatar

Tudor did it as usual this year at Baselworld: simply and efficiently. In fact, Tudor always aims to find a good balance between the "talking pieces" and commercial watches dedicated to volume markets, while limiting the number of novelties. This year is no exception to the rule, with the new pieces are focusing exclusively on the Black Bay collection with a heavy trend: the two-tone style. I invite you to discover the watches that make up this collection 2019...Story
