Patek Philippe chronographs part 2

Avatar
Miranda
Serial production of chronographs began with the esteemed – and is perhaps the most recognised of all vintage Patek Philippe chronographs. Production started in 1934, and the movement was a heavily modified Valjoux. Production ended in 1964, with approximately 1500 pieces in all metals being made. Made in both precious metal and steel (and very rarely combinations of steel and gold), there are some rare and extremely valuable variations within the reference- the most desired versions being in white gold .....Story

Girard-Perregaux and the Ferrari connection

Avatar

Friends, we all know of the connection between Girard-Perregaux and Ferrari and the Girard-Perregaux Pour Ferrari collection. However, let’s have a closer look at how this all came about and what were the most remarkable creations during that partnership. The partnership with Ferrari and the idea to create a branded watch collection roots back to Luigi (Gino) Macaluso and his personal background and passion. When in 1992 Gino Macaluso bought the Maison Girard-Perregaux, he had already been part of the advisory .....Story

At the SIHH, this year, there were a few watches which deeply impressed me: The Jaeger-Lecoultre Gyrotourbillon 5, the Girard Perregaux La Esmeralda in white gold, the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Twinbeat and... This Montblanc 1858 Split Second! Let's say it straight, Montblanc did it again, after the 1858 Tachymeter from 2016, and the Montblanc 13.21 Green from 2018. 1858 Tachymeter, 2016, in steel or in rose gold: The " Green " from 2018, Cal 13.21: This year, Montblanc unveiled the king of Chronographs, ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42mm in Titanium

Avatar
foversta
The new Code 11.59 collection was under the spotlights but Audemars Piguet presented many more pieces during the last SIHH. I wanted to highlight the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42mm in titanium because it is different from the rest of the collection. In fact, it embodies a new stylistic approach for the Royal Oak Offshore 42mm. I consider it as a sort of "synthesis" watch...Story

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59

Avatar
crown comfort
Friends, there has been a lot of debate and negative comments about the new Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 collection, but frankly not that many posts with a detailed look at the watch. I had the privilege to handle the 3-hander Code 11.59 in the 41mm white gold case and black lacquered dial. What is very obvious to me is that AP tried to go a different route. The watch is not really a classic dress watch nor a sports watch...Story

Ultraman - This or that?


andrewluff
Its amazing to think there are 50 years between the 2 of these Ultramen and yet side by side they seem like brothers (rather than father and son). I think they really did a great job with the Speedie Tuesday Ultraman, but in my mind the original holds the edge... even with all its battle scars from wearing over the years. Cheers Andrew ...Story
