We are having tropical nights these days. It’s hot, humid and the Scandinavian summertime the sun sets so late. I was sitting outside reading a book until well beyond 10.30 pm last night from the natural light. I love this time of year more than anything...Story

A quick view on the new Breguet Type XXI Flyback Chronograph 3815 Ti.

Avatar
amanico
Here is the new Type XXI from Breguet, in titanium, with two different dials, each of them limited to 250 pieces. The Green: The Orange: Here, you have a 42 mm case, in titanium, which is 42 mm big, and 15, 2 mm high. While I love the choice of titanium for that kind of watch which is a light material, very pleasant to wear, I am more circumspect about the thickness, first, and also about the size, which, per se is not too big, but when you compare it to the movement size, you may rightly think it is too ... ...Story

Some fresh thoughts on the Jaeger Lecoultre Amvox 2 DBS.

Avatar
amanico
Don't get me wrong, I am not discovering the Jaeger Lecoultre Amvox 2 DBS, I am rediscovering it, thanks to a friend who bought it some months ago and who had the good idea to bring it with him. No, the main purpose of this article is to re evaluate it, 14 years after its release. Indeed, when I first saw the Amvox 2 DBS in 2007, at the SIHH, my first feeling was not really positive, which leads me to a point: When you are a moderator, you have to fight against subjectivity, and let your biased feelings " ... ...Story

Some thoughts on the Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire, White Gold / Black Dial.

Avatar
amanico
It has been a very long time since I saw this Duomètre in the metal, several years, for sure. I must confess that it is not my favorite version, as the one which stole my heart is the 40, 5 mm white gold version / Enamel, which I find supremely exquisite, not to say precious. Though the white gold / black dial has a lot of charm and appeal, and we'll see that in the details. First of all, I also have to say that the QL is my third favorite Duomètre...Story

But first, an explanation of model numbers. Image credit Vacheron Constantin unless otherwise noted. By The Numbers Vacheron & Constantin employed three formats over the years to identify timepieces: photo reference numbers, catalog numbers, and model reference numbers...Story

An interesting journey into the Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso and the Complications.

Avatar
amanico
Jaeger Lecoultre just sent me some pictures of the Reverso since 1991 and the Reverso Soixantième to 2008 and the Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2. An opportunity to revisit the Reverso which housed some of the most thrilling complications, and a pleasure to see some good pictures of these marvels. The historical patents: The Reverso Soixantième is a very important watch, as it reintroduces the Reverso in the catalog, in a brilliant way, as it is the first of the " GT Saga " and the first to house complications. .....Story
