Watches and Wonders 2024: Some thoughts and wishes about the CHOPARD MILLE MIGLIA CLASSIC CHRONOGRAPH JX7.

Avatar

Chopard comes with a new version of the MILLE MIGLIA, called CLASSIC CHRONOGRAPH JX7, which is a limited edition of 250 pieces Nothing really new under the sun, with the exception of a superb deep dark blue dial and a nice decoration on the case back. Even if I would have preferred a solid case back for some reasons I will mention below, mainly because of the movement. As for the dial, I would have gone for a " no date " version. At 4.30, this date kills the purity and the symmetry of this very cool looking .....Story

Press release: CHRONOGRAPHE FB Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Boutique F.P.Journe Tokyo

Avatar
ChristianDK
At a time when watch brands favoured retailers for their distribution, François-Paul Journe chose not to follow convention. He was the first to open a subsidiary and a boutique under his own name in Aoyama, in central Tokyo. Just a stone's throw from the Nezu Museum, in the Omotesando district, the Boutique F.P.Journe Tokyo opened its doors in September 2003 inside “La Collezione”, the work of Tadao Ando, the architect of spirituality. The layout was entirely imagined by Seihachi Sagawa and François-Paul .....Story

New Jaeger Lecoultre Duometres. Some thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
Some of us pushed the Manufacture to work on a new Duometre, since 2014. Ten years later, Jaeger Lecoultre comes with three " New " Duometres, the Quantième Lunaire, The Chronograph Moon, and the Heliotourbillon Perpetual. Let's see the first two, here, through some questions: Are they really new? Are they true Duometres? Before answering these questions, let me confess that I see these two watches through the eyes of a fanatic, a hard core fan of the Duometre since Jaeger Lecoultre issued it in 2007, which ... ...Story

A review on the Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT.

Avatar
amanico
Finally! When Tudor introduced the Black Bay GMT in 2018, I was under the charm of this watch which immediately made me think of the Rolex GMT MASTER 6542, the legendary GMT from the crowned sister. The Black Bay GMT was and still is 41 mm big, and... 14, 6 mm high, which, objectively, is quite thick. Not a deal breaker for me, but, since 2018, I was hoping, each year, to see a new version in a smaller AND thinner case...Story

Gino´s Dream

Avatar
ChristianDK
This year marks the 10 th anniversary of the Elegante watch. And so, this year’s Salon was dedicated entirely to the watch that has grown from controversy in to an enormous success for the brand. I was able to see and try the “Gino´s Dream” in Geneva. I got a sneak peak of the prototype for “Gino´s Dream” in the beginning of last year, so I have been excited to see how the production piece would turn out...Story

which one is your personal favourite in your collection ?!

mahesh
couple of years ago I ordered this timepiece...I asked the watch maker to keep only hours hand and take-off the sub-seconds.... I gave him a hand sketch made by my son and asked him...if he could do something with it ! and this is what he did ! also having 1 lug makes it different - like wearing a dial gauge or instrument and not a timepiece ! Not the most expensive but emotionally the most valuable timepiece in my collection ! end of the day...this hobby is all about emotions, friendship, personal milestones ... ...Story

Hentschel H1 Chronometer P 20 / Zenith CP2 P15... And WatchProSite 25?.

Avatar
amanico
As you well know, these are two of our creations, made and issued to celebrate the 15th and 20th Anniversary of our website. We started from an existing watch and tried to " spice it " a bit, in order to make it according to our taste and the taste of our Community. Yes, these were watches made by us, for us, but mainly for our Community, for you all. For the Zenith CP2 P15, we worked on a detail on the dial, and a personalized decoration on the movement...Story

Rolex Air King 116 900 6th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
The Rolex Air King was issued in 2016 and discontinued in 2022, to be replaced by the Air King 126 900, basically adding a protection to the crown, a Zero before the " 5 " minute marker, luminous in the 3 / 6 / 9 applied hour markers ( called Chromalight ) and different movement, the Cal 3230 which offers a power reserve of 70 hours, versus 48 hours for the Cal 3131. The Air King 116 900 versus the new Air King 126 900: I remember the lukewarm welcome the Rolex Air King 116900 received in 2016. I was among ... ...Story
