As announced, this year won't be the year of the Duometre. We'll have to wait till 2020, most probably, to see something new in this line dear to many of us. Still, there are some offers, this year, which are worth some serious consideration. I will arrive at the SIHH on Tuesday late afternoon, so the first live pictures will come on Wednesday morning...Story

Hands on review of the Chopard L.U.C All-in-One 2018

Avatar
foversta
For many years, Chopard has established itself as one of the most technically creative and innovative Swiss Manufactures thanks to a very large catalog of complications available in the L.U.C collection. In 2010, to celebrate its 150th anniversary, Chopard presented its most complicated watch, the L.U.C All-in-One, whose name was ideally chosen. Indeed this watch was a demonstration of the know-how of the Manufacture by gathering many complications displayed on both sides of the case. The problem with "demonstrative" .....Story

Box Play: LeCoultre Reference 3072

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
New year, same game – Box Play! This time it is the LeCoultre Memovox reference 3072. As far as I can remember, the 3072 were only made for the North America market. An odd-looking bird with oval case, cupola crowns, diamond shaped hands and rectangular marker on the seconds hand! Together with all these different shapes you have the round alarm disk and indexes. The different sized indexes are polished with a brush pattern and not angled in the same horizontal which gives a very strange perception of them .....Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Datograph Up / Down Lumen

Avatar
foversta
It is maybe a way to illuminate the long winter nights but Lange & Söhne is used to unveil its "Lumen" watches at the end of the year. The Datograph Up / Down Lumen, which was presented in the last quarter of 2018 is the fourth watch of its kind from the Saxon manufacture and is, like its predecessors, very successful. The name Lumen (not to be confused with the old appelation Luminous) applies to watches that undergo a special treatment of the dial. The traditional dial is replaced by a semi-transparent .....Story

A retrospective view on my year 2018.

Avatar

A rich year, this year, with some excellent and a few less good moments. All starts, for a watch lover and moderator, with the SIHH and its series of novelties. Was it a good SIHH? In terms of novelties, there were some highlights. Jaeger Lecoultre with the new Polaris line of watches, of course...Story

Jaeger-Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface. Some real pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
When the Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface was unveiled, in the first days of September, I couldn't see it, and I had to do with press pictures, to write a quick review on it. Here is the link to this review: So, two weeks ago, I asked the Manufacture to let me see this new Reverso in the metal. The first impressions were positive, even though I am far from being a strong fan of Tourbillons which make a hole in the dial. I much prefer when they are part of the dial / movement, such as the Reverso Platinum .....Story

Girard-Perregaux: Review MIMO CENTRIC – An Early Regulator

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
As you may know in the early part of the 1900, Girard-Perregaux and MIMO were managed by the same owners. Due to that the brands shared several models with just the name on the dial different. Like the Large Date from the 1940s: GP Catalogue 1940 – MIMO 1940s – Another example of these models which were featured by both brands was the GP Regulator or MIMO CENTRIC. Not too far apart you can spot these for sale in bad shape or with repainted dials… But to find one in good original condition takes time… I have .....Story
