A day on the track with the Alpine A 110.

Avatar

I was invited by an Alpine Authorized Dealer to test the Alpine on the track. I already tested it on the small roads of Normandy, and on the highway, too, I had to go farther and have some fun on the track to test its limits, and to get some notions on how to pilot a car on a track, too. We had an appointment at 9.00 AM, and I arrived a bit earlier, the Volvo C 70 T5 being a pretty fast car. The first surprise? The cars in presence...Story

Hands on review of the Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Patrick Mouratoglou Ultimate Tennis Showdown

Avatar
foversta
It is interesting to note that at Zenith, it is one of the most technical watches in the collection that spearheads the brand's "lifestyle" approach. The Defy El Primero 21, whose chronograph function is distinguished by its ability to display 100ths of a second, is being used more and more frequently in the context of collaborations that allow different styles and universes to be explored. I'm thinking, for example, of the Carl Cox version or the Land Rover model. The latest collaboration to date is the .....Story

Hands on review of the Nomos Tangente ADM (Antoine de Macedo)

Avatar
foversta
The Tangente is Nomos' great classic, directly inspired by the Bauhaus type watches made by Lange and Stowa in the late 1930s. It is characterised by its round case, slim bezel and Arabic numerals with recognisable font. I owned a Tangente a long time ago and it was a watch that gave me a lot of pleasure. It was elegant without being too formal and timeless without being too classic...Story

Today is a beautiful sunny autumn day and the leaves are turning a million colors. I usually wear my CB in the summer time because it becomes alive in the sunlight. However this beautiful day inspired me to put it on after a few months in the bank. What a great piece...Story

Mission 321 - by Cpt Scarlet

The Omega Speedmaster is a design classic and should be viewed in the same way as the Leica Camera, the Eames Chair and the Corvette Stingray. All of these iconic designs are still in production today, being made in modern factories and subtly updated to remain as relevant today as the day they were launched. Let’s take a trip back to the era where it all started and give the Speedmaster some context. Things were very different when in 1958 The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was established .....Story

Hands on review of Remy Cool's Tourbillon Souscription

Avatar
foversta
I met Rémy Cools for the first time two years ago, during the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the FP. Journe boutique in Paris. The location of this meeting was hardly surprising since Rémy had just won the "Young Talent Competition" organised on the initiative of François-Paul Journe, whose vocation for several years now has been to support and reward talented young watchmakers. Rémy Cools had won the prize thanks to an entirely hand-made tourbillon table clock, but it was a wristwatch that caught .....Story

Posting this as my wife is mixing me a gin tonic, I wish you all a happy weekend! - Please join me in posting your FPJ watch 🍸 I love to go back to the Chronometre Souverain. It is a cornerstone in my watch collecting life. I still think this is one of the best time only watches around. I remember my first visit to Montres Journe in Geneva in 2007 how It just “clicked”...Story

Hands on review of the Breguet Tradition Quantieme Retrograde ref. 7597

Avatar
foversta
Inspired by the Souscription watches of the late 18th century, the Tradition collection is, in my opinion, the true cornerstone of Breguet's catalogue. Indeed, it has given a dynamic impetus to the brand thanks to its various models whose mechanisms are visible on the dial side. These watches, while greatly respecting the heritage of Abraham-Louis Breguet, are part of an approach that I would describe as contemporary, and by the same token, a rejuvenation of the classic range. The first Tradition watches .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication 2020 Edition. Some thoughts and real pictures.

Avatar
amanico
I wrote an article on the Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication 2020 Edition, some months ago. Here is the link to the thread: I was impatient to see it in the real life, to judge the benefits of the new case and the sound of this watch. Without surprise, the sound is as good as the former models, rich and powerful, which is a true challenge. I consider the 2015 Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication edition as one of the best sounding Minute Repeater I've ever heard, and this 2020 version is .....Story
