Incoming 5088/100P engraved in Platinum --- What's your favorite Rare Handcraft technique...miniature painting, enamel, wood marquetry, or engraving? :-)

Avatar
FabR
Dear Friends, let me (officially) share the joy of the latest addition to my Patek collection, ref. 5088/100P....an in-catalog Rare Handcraft first introduced in 2015, which features a stunning engraved dial (and case, and buckle)! This beauty in a sense also "completes" my collection of Rare Handcraft techniques, since engraving was the only "main" craft I was unforgivably missing until last night....I was glad to receive it to view when I arrived in Italy back in May (I since learnt that Italy only gets ... ...Story

Myth or Legend: Curating the Past at Vacheron Constantin

Tick Talk
Vacheron Constantin “It is not important what we have, only what we have done.” Reinhold Messner Hoping everyone is enjoying a great summer! I’ve returned briefly to get something off my mind in hopes that releasing the thought from its cranial cage will allow me to enjoy the rest of this too-brief season. I am always a bit puzzled by our dear Maison and the manner in which they delve into their past to support the present. Like that annoying cousin who habitually exaggerates every achievement just to appear ... ...Story

Ulysse Nardin Sonata: 17th birthday!

Avatar
amanico
I still cannot realize that one day,in a few years, now, it will become a vintage. This watch is so timelessly modern! 17 years ago, it was an UHO ( Unidentified Horological Object ). What? An alarm watch which sounds like a minute Repeater? On 24 hours? With a 24 hours alarm countdown? Which you can set to the minute? With a grande date and a second time zone you can set forward and backward??? There was nothing like the Sonata at that time, in 2003 when it was unveiled, and still nowadays, the only existing ... ...Story

Some thoughts about an old friend: Panerai PAM 199 Regatta.

Avatar
amanico
The PAM 199, the Submarsibe Regatta, was in my collection as soon as it was unveiled, in 2004. It was a limited edition of 500 pieces, and as every LE from Panerai, at that time, a quite hot model. The PAM 199 is a Submersible, with a dedicated case back, signed " Laureus Awards May 2004 " and a hobnail dial. If my memory serves me well, the dots are tritium while the hands and the " 12 " and " 6 " are luminova, hence the patina developed by the dots only...Story

Hands on review of the Zenith Chronomaster Original

Avatar
foversta
Zenith has been extremely (no pun intended) active for several months: some very important novelties have been revealed in a rather short period of time, such as the Chronomaster Sport, the Defy Extreme and now the Chronomaster Original. All this gives the impression that Zenith is accelerating not only the renewal of its catalogue but its profound reorganisation. When I look at the situation today, a few days after the release of the Chronomaster Original, I can't help but think that the strategic orientations ... ...Story

Hands on review of the MAD Edition 1 (MAD Gallery & Max Büsser)

Avatar
foversta
The big event of the last few weeks is undoubtedly the discovery of the MAD Edition 1, a watch sold by the MAD Gallery exclusively to MB&F clients who have registered as members of the "Tribe" and Friends (people who have collaborated on projects for the brand). In other words, the MAD Edition 1 is not available to the general public and it is the reason why I use the term "discovery" and not "presentation". Because there was no official presentation with fanfare, except for the direct communication to the ... ...Story
