Fx in Rome: visit of the new Hublot boutique

Avatar
foversta
One can be surprised by this frenzy of openings of boutiques in Rome. Indeed, just like Panerai, Hublot opened its boutique in the eternal city a few weeks ago in a prestigious location, at the 79 Piazza di Spagna. This is the fourth Hublot boutique in Italy and it reflects a change in brands' behavior towards Rome. Indeed, for a long time, they considered that the city was a preferred destination for mass tourism and that finally few potential customers would have wished to buy an expensive watch during .....Story

I was really lucky to come upon this Timex Marlin Snoopy completely by chance. It is not that it is rare. But its production is truly limited. And it's hard to know in advance when Timex makes it available on its website...Story

Fx in Rome: visit of the new Panerai boutique

Avatar

Rome is a city on the move from the watchmaking point of view. In a few months, the capital of Italy has been the setting of the openings of a Rolex boutique, a Patek Philippe boutique (both operated by Hausmann, the famous Roman dealer), a Hublot boutique and therefore a Panerai boutique that I propose you to discover. This boutique is interesting from several points of view. It strengthens the presence of the brand in its mother country which is one of its important markets...Story

Ulysse Nardin Sonata 15th Birthday.

Avatar

Now, that is an Anniversary which counts as much as it surprises me to see how well this watch ages, all along or despite all these years. Well, the only thing which shows its age is the case, in my opinion, but for the rest, it is a kind of horological Dorian Gray, an eternal youth. I am still puzzled and in awe when I admire it, when I put it on my wrist. Its dial is very much my taste, as well as its controversial hands which are loved or hated, but which don't let anybody indifferent...Story

A few weeks ago, Panerai unveiled a series of Radiomir 1940 Green Dial. The two which caught my eyes are the 995 we already saw, and the 997. The PAM 995 for the record: Two very different watches, despite their green dial. The 995 is 45 mm big, 12, 2 mm high...Story

31th of July 2007 / 31th of July 2019. 12 years, it's been 12 years that this Master Minute Repeater is on my wrist! It is not the oldest watch still present in my collection, but it is a magic and a cherished one. This is the kind of watch which was a fantasy which turned into reality. When it was released, in 2006, I was totally mad about it, thinking that I will never be able to find a solution to get one...Story

Hands on review of Theo Auffret's Tourbillon in Paris (Tourbillon à Paris)

Avatar
foversta
The trend is confirmed: France gradually regains its place as a country that counts in the world of high-level watchmaking. What gives me the greatest pleasure is that this growing credibility is the result of the work of young watchmakers, which augurs well for a very promising future. In my opinion, the person who created the spark for this revival was Jean-Baptiste Viot. His chronometer in Paris (Chronomètre à Paris) largely defines the main characteristics of a French and contemporary Haute Horlogerie .....Story

Some observation on a couple of colored gold Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic E 168.

Avatar
amanico
I think I saw a bit of everything when it comes to the Geophysic. Steel, rose gold, yellow gold classic dial, yellow gold crosshairs dial... The only versions I didn't see in the metal, yet, are the Geophysic De Luxe Ref 2985 in rose gold and in yellow gold, with a different dial, hands and case, and an ultra rare E 169 in gold, with an integrated bracelet, but I am still on the hunt to find them and to take some pictures. The Geophysic De Luxe 2985: And the E 169, on the right of the leaflet: Here is a rose .....Story

I was very fortunate to be invited by Chopard to attend the LUC event which took place yesterday in the prestigious venue: the Automobile Club de France. Actually, I wasn't able to remember when the latest big event organized by Chopard took was organized in Paris. Of course, Cannes remains a big spot on the agenda year after year and some dinners related to the festival are organized in Paris in this respect. But I think that yesterday's event had been the first one from a quite long time dedicated to the .....Story
