Jaeger Lecoultre Geographique watches. A good example of the Manufacture Diversity

Avatar
amanico
When the Master Géographique was unveiled in 1989, it was an original, friendly, sophisticated and beautiful watch, displaying a complication which is somewhere between the GMT and the World Time. Indeed, when you select the city you are traveling, the time zone of this city is displayed in the dedicated sub dial. Easy to use, complex to achieve. Here is the " Ketchum " Edition, in platinum, belonging to our dear friend Sandgroper...Story

Hands on review of the Genus GNS 1

Avatar
foversta
What I appreciate above all in independent watchmaking is its ability to develop the most ambitious projects that explore new ways to display the time. I will not tell you stories: there is nothing more legible and understandable than the two good old hands that rotate on a 12 hours dial. But creative mechanical watchmaking is not only practical. It offers much more than that: it offers a new relationship with the flow of time and it is in this territory that the new brand Genus is committed...Story

A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time ( 2017 collection ).

Avatar
amanico
After the Tribute to Geophysic unveiled in 2014, and the True Second / Universal Time in 2015, Jaeger Lecoultre came, at the beginning of the year 2017, with another member of the Geophysic Family, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time. Is this a bigger Geophysic Universal Time with a tourbillon? Not really. The Geophysic Universal Time on Bracelet. Compared to the Universal Time, this " Tourbillon Universal Time " ( which I will call T.U.T ) presents some huge differences...Story

Blancpain: 2019 novelties

Avatar
foversta
For me, things are very clear: Blancpain was the most convincing brand of Time to Move, the event organized by Swatch Group to present the novelties of its high end brands. In fact, little by little, Blancpain seems to find its way after going astray in strange strategic directions like the launch of the L-Evolution collection. Blancpain relies on two fundamental pillars of its catalog (Fifty Fathoms and Villeret) and does so with reason. On one side, casual chic watches with a neo-retro trend...Story

I had the opportunity to attend the event organized by Jaeger-Lecoultre which took place a few days ago at the boutique. It was a spectacular event with a strong focus on engraving. A photographer was present to shoot the engraved watches of the guests. It is the reason why it was a bit mandatory for me to bring mine! Please browse the pictures I took during the event...Story

Crazy Watches Roll Call.

Avatar
amanico
When we think Crazy Watches, we have some mad creations from Independents, in our mind... Such as: Max Busser and Friends: Urwerk: De Bethune: But not only! Even the generalists made or still make some horological UFOs. Ulysse Nardin is the first I am thinking of, with the Freak and the Innovision: Innovision 2007: Innovision 2017: Girard Perregaux, with the Laureato Tourbillon with Spinnel Bridges; Vacheron Constantin, with the Sputnik: And Jaeger Lecoultre, with the Extreme Lab: Blancpain: This is not a ... ...Story
