Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Three Meteorite. Pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
Jaeger Lecoultre unveiled, a few days ago, another version of the Gyrotourbillon Three. Let's remember that the Gyrotourbillon Three was born in 2013, and that it offered the combination of a Gyrotourbillon and a digital minutes chronograph, the night and day indicator being anecdotal. In 2014, the Manufacture came with a " Hybris Artistic " version, with some notable differences: A tantalum case instead of platinum, a darkened decoration of the movement, and a black opaline dial. The bad news is that it .....Story

Here is the new Ulysse Nardin Hour Striker " Phantom " Devialet Limited Edition. Devialet is a french company which makes loudspeakers. You will understand the link between such a company and the Hour Striker quite easily. The main problem of a striking watch is to offer a sufficient level of sound of good quality ( pitch / richness )...Story

Hands on review of the Louis Erard Excellence Regulateur Alain Silberstein

Avatar

Louis Erard offers us a very nice surprise during this last quarter by presenting a breathtaking version of his Excellence Regulateur. I almost wrote: "unexpectedly" and finally I changed my mind. Because when I think about it, it is not surprising to see Louis Erard act like this. The brand is indeed taking its destiny in hand under the impetus of Manuel Emch who is much more than a special advisor sit on its bedside...Story

The inauguration party of the Breitling boutique, rue de la Paix in Paris

foversta
After several weeks of work, Breitling has reopened its boutique located at the number 10 of the rue de la Paix. In fact, Breitling had hardly left the place during the works since the temporary boutique was located in the same street, on the same side and a few steps from the Place Vendôme. The reopening of this important boutique for the brand is interesting in many ways. First because of the nature of the inauguration party and then because of the architectural codes and the interior layout used to renovate .....Story

Exactly one year ago, some people of the RAID ( the french equivalent of the SWAT ), a few friends and Antoine De Macedo ( one of the most famous watch shop in Paris ) had a trip in Bienne to meet the Omega Team for a project around a special Speedmaster for the french Police. The idea was to work from a normal / regular Speedmaster and to personalize it. 9 months after, the first watches landed. Most of the watches will be delivered to the RAID, and only a few will be available for sale...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre grey dialed watches. Is grey the new black?

Avatar
amanico
Traditionally, we think that a watch must have a white / sliver or black dial. We see more and more watches with salmon or blue dials, which seems to be nowadays tendance for the brands, even if some brands had blue or salmon dialed watched in their catalogues for some decades. Red dials are also used by several brands, and of course, brown / chocolate / tobacco. For instance, Jaeger Lecoultre had blue dials in the catalogue for a very long time...Story

Hands on review of the Ultramarine Morse UTC

Avatar
foversta
If you remember well, I published a few months ago a wristshot of the Ultramarine Morse UTC which was the materialization of the project led by French entrepreneur Lionel Bruneau. The project guideline was to offer a 100% Swiss Made watch, that is to say without any concession at the fairest possible price. During the presentation of the prototype I saw last year, I had no doubt that Lionel Bruneau had won a big part of his challenge. But a prototype remains a prototype and I wanted to view again a year later .....Story

Hands on review of the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de Vache in steel

Avatar
foversta
I prefer to go straight to the point. There is one detail that I don't like with this new release from Vacheron Constantin, it is the strategy of the brand which surrounds it. In fact, I find it hard to understand why Vacheron Constantin has partnered with Hodinkee in 2017 to release a limited edition of the chronograph Historiques Cornes de Vache, explaining its exceptional character because of its steel case ... And two years later, here is the come-back of the very same case in another context...Story

A view on the Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication in white gold ( 2010 ) and in rose gold ( 2015 ).

amanico
If you are following me during all these years, you know that I have some obsessions, such as the date, the straps...And the case. For some years, it seems that Jaeger-Lecoultre decided to revisit the case of their watches. They launched some new ones, such as the Master Ultra Thin " Jubilée " in 2013, the Geophysic in 2014 and the Polaris this year... And, since 2009, the Master Grande Tradition...Story
