Hands-on with the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph 42mm, Ref 81020

Avatar
crown comfort
Finally, I have been able to take the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph hands-on and report on it with my personal impressions. Ever since it’s rebirth in 2016 with the Anniversary Laureato, the Laureato has quickly become a key successful line for Girard-Perregaux. We know of course that GP is much more than only Laureato, take the classic Vintage 1945 or 1966 line or the Haute Horlogerie pieces, but the Laureato has hit a sweet spot where it gets much attention. At SIHH 2018, the Chronograph was added .....Story

My deepest apologies...


andrewluff
Hi Gang, I must start by sending my apologies... I have been overwhelmed since BaselWorld with mix of work, travel, family and life... this has left me very little time for my passion. It has also left me with a hard drive of Basel images and with little time to even look through them...Story

Reservoir: the Longbridge collection

Avatar
foversta
Step by step, the young French brand Reservoir manages to impose its singularity on the watchmaking landscape. Its visibility grows, its distribution network expands and above all, its collection becomes larger as evidenced by the presentation of the Longbridge collection during the last edition of Baselworld. Reservoir offers first and foremost a very simple and effective starting point: the coherence between the design and the time display. The latter, based on the principles of jumping hours and retrograde .....Story

Breguet Type XX Transatlantique Platinum Salmon Dial, Limited Edition 14th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
Yes, you read well, I had to check the date I purchased this watch as I couldn't believe 14 years have passed, already. In May 2004, during a trip in Sicily, I was fortunate to fall on this Breguet Type XX Transatlantique in platinum, with its gorgeous salmon dial which is made in rose gold. That was a totally unexpected encounter, truth to be told. I was aware that such a version existed, unveiled the same year or in 2003, but I never saw one in the flesh...Story

The top 10 iconic watches from the last century: in my very humble opinion

Avatar
Miranda
Santos In 1904 Louis Cartier made a wrist watch for his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont, it was the first wristwatch made for a man (Patek had made wristwatches prior- but these wristlets were made for women). This square watch featured an extra long leather strap so the Santos-Dumont could wear it over his flying jacket- in a sense it was the first pilots watch. Santos-Dumont who wore it every time he flew and this visibility enhanced Cartier’s reputation but also garnished popularity for a wristwatch and in ... ...Story

Box Play 1940’s: Omega Officer reference 2299

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
Back in the 1940’s, watches were smaller than today’s fashion and so were the boxes as well. Today we see a lot of very large, luxury boxes that would easily fit ten watches or more inside, made for just one watch… Back in the 1940’s many boxes were made by paper… Like this special made box for the Omega Officer reference 2299: Small in size, both watch and box. The ref 2299 is only 30.5 mm in diameter. The box, 50mm x 139mm and 20mm high...Story

My collection of modern Rolex, and my projects.

Avatar
amanico
By modern I mean from the 90's to nowadays, the Rolex before the 90's are neo vintage for me. So, what do I have? The Daytona 16520: The Explorer II 16570: The Yacht Master 16222: The Milgauss 116400 GV: And the Air King 2016 Edition, the 116 900: The funny thing I noticed is that in that selection, there are only Un-Rolex references. At the exception of the Daytona 16520, of course. But the others are not typical Rolex: The Milgauss and the Air King are totally crazy with their splashes of colors...Story
