Hands on review of the David Rutten DR-01 Streamline

Avatar
foversta
Foreword: The pictured watch is a prototype and some details will be improved. In particular, a plate is missing on the caseback and the contrast between the numerals and the discs will be increased. David Rutten claims that he was born in Belgium but I do not think so. He comes from a very distant planet...Story

It is not a mystery I am a huge fan of the Mercator.

If I am more fan of the Enamel Champlevé dials, I cannot deny the charm of the solid gold dials. Here is an enemel Champlevé, " Germany "...Story

Tudor Submariner 7924 Big Crown. The first pictures I took and a story about this watch.

Avatar
amanico
I found the very first pictures I took when I finally convinced the owner to sell this Tudor 7924 to me. And immediately, the feelings resurfaced and also the story behind it. I remember how I harassed him for months before he decided to let it go. And how excited I was to finally get it! Can you imagine? There were not that many made, in 1958, which is the only year of production, in the last quartal, moreover...Story

I had the opprtunity to attend a few days ago an event organized by the Seiko France team in the Seiko boutique of Paris. We are very fortunate in France to have several Seiko boutiques in Paris or in other cities. They give the proof of the ambition of the Seiko Group in this country. The aim of the event was to attend a presentation of the assembly process of the Spring Drive movement done by a watchmaker coming from Japan: Takuya Nishinaka...Story

Avatar
foversta
Longines reserves a very nice surprise at the end of the year with the Heritage Classic model. This is certainly not the most spectacular or the most original watch. But it demonstrates once again the ability from Longines to reinterpret certain models of the past effectively. The Heritage Classic is inspired by a watch from the 30s which it takes the silvered sector dial characteristic of the time...Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Odysseus

Avatar
foversta
An important event was required (if not mandatory) to celebrate fittingly the 25th anniversary of Lange & Söhne. And the presentation of the new Odysseus watch, the first of the 6th family of the catalog is a milestone one. The 24th of October, 1994 will remain for ever the date of the rebirth of the brand, the day when were presented the first 4 watches which were concretely testifying the restart of the activity of the manufacture. The 24th of October, 2019 may become a significant new date in the history .....Story
