Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso. From the Soixantième to the Quantième Perpétuel: 10 years of a Saga.

Avatar
amanico
1991 - 2000. A saga of ten years, housing the most classic, traditional horological complications. At that time, the universe of fine watches, at Jaeger Lecoultre, was rectangular, not round. Not that there were not great watches, from the early 90's to the early 2000's.....Story

Panerai: a few words about the Luminor Sealand Year of the Rat

Avatar
foversta
It's come full circle. Panerai has just unveiled its twelfth watch dedicated to Chinese zodiac signs with the one celebrating the year of the rat. And of course, this watch is based on the same recipe used previously, namely a steel Luminor 44mm base, powered by an automatic P9010 caliber with a 3-day power reserve and released in a Sealand context, i.e. with a lid hinged at 12 o'clock...Story

Grand Seiko will open a boutique on the Place Vendôme end of March

Avatar
foversta
It had been known for many months and the brand has just confirmed it by means of a press release: Grand Seiko will open "its first boutique in Europe" (as expressed in the press release) in a prestigious location previously occupied by Fred, at the number 7 on the Place Vendôme, right next to the Jaeger-Lecoultre boutique. Maybe Grand Seiko has already integrated the Brexit but to my knowledge this boutique will not be the first in Europe since a few weeks ago I had seen one in London in Burlington Arcade. ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Van Bricht Old Mind

Avatar
foversta
I am wondering if Belgium is not becoming a country that counts in the watchmaking world. We can legitimately ask the question since Belgian professionals have distinguished themselves for many years and in very different segments. We obviously think about Ressence, Ice-Watch ... without forgetting the talented Belgian watchmakers who work within a lot of brands...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Tourbillon Platinum Skeleton. Some fresh pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
One of our friends came with this splendid Reverso Tourbillon Platinum Skeleton, during an event in Paris. The probability you fall on someone wearing this watch is close to zero, as it was issued as a true limited edition, a batch of 35 pieces, in 2004, and I only saw two for sale in these last 10 years. I would also add that this is the third I had the opportunity to see in the reality, in these last 15 years. This Reverso is pure magic...Story

Hands on review of the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Fragment

Avatar
foversta
I would like to come back to one of the watches in my collection: the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Fragment. In fact, beyond the fact that I appreciate it very much, it symbolizes, in my opinion, a very interesting approach of the neo-retro style. Tag Heuer could have been content to clone the reference Carrera 2447 NT which was used as inspiration for this model but the brand decided to collaborate with the Japanese designer Hiroshi Fujiwara to give it a touch of originality and a more contemporary atmosphere. .....Story

Sascha
Hello dear friends and Hublotista, The Geneva Days, the LVMH Group's annual presentation of new products, which took place parallel to the SIHH in Geneva, is history. Geneva Days will now be replaced by LVMH Watch Week, which is currently taking place in Dubai. And Hublot again presented great new products. The really big technical novelty was not there (they are traditionally shown in Basel), but there were some exciting new products...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Vintage Double Date Ref 2701. Some pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
We know the Vintage Jaeger Lecoultre Triple Dates very well here, as several of us own or owned one. The Triple Date is certainly one of the nicest vintage Jaeger Lecoultre with its tear drop lugs, its superb movement and its timeless dial. Add the " big case ", which is 36 mm, and you have a hit. Ref 2721: Less well known and sought after, but absolutely charming, the Double Date which was in production from 1935 to 1945 is a sweet candy...Story

Vintage Rolex Booklets - Spotting the fakes

Avatar
Bill
Vintage Rolex booklets are great part of a full set. It adds another dimension to how the watch was intended to be used. The booklets are half owners manual and half advertising presentations. Sometimes we are lucky to find full sets from original owners and those are the standards that we go by...Story
