Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Calendar and Chronograph Calendar in Steel. Some real pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
This year, Jaeger Lecoultre had the good idea to revisit the Master Control collection, and started with the Date, the Calendar, the Chronograph Calendar, the Geographique and the Memovox. So, now, the Master Control watches have a new case, a redesigned dial and for some of them, an improved movement. After having reviewed the Memovox and the Memovox Timer, let's now focus our attention on two of them, the steel versions of the Master Control Calendar and the Master Chronograph Calendar . 1/ MASTER CONTROL .....Story

Hands on review of the Tudor Black Bay 58 Navy Blue

Avatar
foversta
The least that can be said is that Tudor has remained focused on its subject in 2020. If I set aside the recently introduced Tudor Royal, which is dedicated at this stage to the Asian market, the brand has unveiled only one worldwide novelty this year: the Black Bay 58 Navy Blue. It is, as its name indicates, a variation of the Black Bay 58 with a black dial that was presented two years ago. The Black Bay 58, it's a bit as if Tudor went to the end of the logic...Story

Hands on review of the Richard Mille RM 72-01 Lifestyle In-House chronograph

Avatar

The RM 67-01 Extra-Flat is one of my favourite Richard Mille watches. I like its finesse, its slender side, its contemporary style which in a way reinterprets the classic and elegant watch. This is surely why I particularly appreciate the newest reference from the Manufacture located in Les Breuleux: the RM 72-01 Lifestyle In-House Chronograph. Indeed, I find many common points: this fluidity, this approach more in refinement than in demonstration of power and above all.....Story

Rolex 2020 novelties: Part 2 (Oyster Perpetual and Sky-Dweller)

Avatar
foversta
As stated in the first part, this year Rolex has gone well beyond the "simple" renewal of the Submariner collection. In fact, the new features of the Oyster Perpetual are certainly even more important from a strategic point of view for the brand. Indeed, this collection, due to its wide range of available diameters and a varied choice of colour dials, plays an essential role in the catalogue. It appeals to both men and women in any market...Story

Rolex 2020 novelties: Part 1 (Submariner)

Avatar
foversta
When Rolex presented a complete collection of new models on 1 September, the size of which differs little from that of a "normal year", it immediately answered a question: no, 2020 is not a transition year and this late presentation did not lead the brand to reduce its volume of new models. Submariner, Datejust, Oyter Perpetual, Sky-Dweller, these collections are either renewed or completed, which finally testifies to an active year. It is the symbol of the Rolex way of doing things. Whatever the circumstances, .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Cal 101 and 849: 2 great movements from La Grande Maison.

Avatar
amanico
Of course we could mention many great movements from Jaeger Lecoultre. They made,since 1833, more than 2000 movements, so the list can be endless, such as the Cal 889, the 38x from the Duometre line, the Gyrotourbillons, and, of course, the vintage calibres such as those of the Geophysic, Futurematic, the Memovox... Here, I would just show two of them, one which is the thinnest, the Cal 849, and the smallest, the cal 101. Being the smallest and the thinnest movement is a true technical and horological defy, .....Story

An encounter with the Astronomic Souveraine and a conversation with Francois-Paul Journe.

Last week, during the salon at Montres Journe in Geneva, I was so lucky to finally see the Astronomic Souveraine. I have been wanting to see it for ages, but circumstances have kept me out of reach. This high-end watch, has been building up in my mind with a mixture of anticipation, high expectations and also questions about its concept. And so, it was a great pleasure to finally encounter this watch and form my own impressions...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Memovox Timer: An in-depth and on the wrist review.

Avatar
amanico
After a first introduction made some weeks ago, let's come back to the new Memovox, called Master Control Memovox, and most specially the Memovox Timer, now that I could test it for some ten days. Indeed, the press files and official pictures are not accurate enough to give a faithful idea or perception of a watch. You really need to see it, and better, to feel it, before any final or complete judgement. So let's discover this new Memovox in the details, now...Story
