Report of the Hublot Paris Sapphire Night

Avatar
foversta
We tend to forget it but Hublot has developed a wide range of sapphire models. Even if Hublot was not the first brand to offer such type of watches, it is now becoming a very credible flag bearer of this trend. Hublot took the opportunity of the release of some recent sapphire pieces to organize a party a few days ago in Paris. The objective, beyond the pleasure to see again these pieces, was to gather in the same place journalists, clients and VIP to celebrate the end of the year...Story

Avatar
foversta
The partnership between Bucherer and the brands that are sold in its stores is growing, and new models are being featured on a regular basis in the famous retailer's Blue Editions collection. Moser is one of the brands that have already contributed to this collection and is back on stage at the end of this year with two new pieces: the Endeavor Diamonds Bucherer Blue Editions and the Heritage Bucherer Blue Editions. I want to go back with more details to the latter because it marks an important step for Moser ... ...Story

The Hublot Meca 10 Power Reserve Mechanism

Avatar
Sascha
Dear friends, My passion for mechanical watches is largely based on the small and fine technical and mechanical solutions that engineers and watchmakers find to make our watches so special. And so the Hublot Meca 10, more specifically the HUB1201 caliber, is a good example of what makes my passion for watches and mechanics so special. The idea for this unusual timepiece came from Mathias Buttet, the ingenious spirit of Hublot, around the year 2011. Mathias is the man who developed the scratch proof 18K Magic .....Story

Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk for over seven decades, what I have collected so far

Avatar
crown comfort
Friends, Let’s have a closer look at the Sea Hawk family from GP. As the name gives it away, the “Sea Hawk” has some connection with water, but as the Sea Hawk as a model dates back all the way to the 1940s, you should not expect that those early Sea Hawks were any kind of a Diving watch. There was a sister model from around the same time, the Sea Scout and both the very early Sea Hawk as well as the Sea Scout claimed some basic water resistance and given the times, had more of a military theme then a Diving ... ...Story

The Asian Snowflake Seiko SBGA211G This dial is really cool when you come close to it. The Grand Seiko Snowflake is a unique watch. The blue secondhand made a great contrast to the dial. The titanium case and bracelet and the size of 41mm diameter and 12,5 mm thick feels well balanced in the hand...Story

On the sidelines of the SalonQP 2018

Avatar
foversta
When the SalonQP takes place, you always have the ability to meet watchmakers or brands which take advantage of the event to show their latest creations to people who go to London. I was able to take advantage of my stay in London to discover other watches that did not emanate from the official exhibitors of the salon. A visit to the Charles Frodsham boutique on Bury Street was a must and is mandatory if you travel to London soon. The Double Impulse Chronometer Wristwatch is indeed one of the most ambitious .....Story

Each year, the Maison Chopard unveils a highly personal variation on the theme of the peony. Revered since antiquity, this intensely colourful, fragrant and symbolic flower finds worthy expressive territory in the L.U.C XP 35 mm. Alongside the Fleurisanne engraving that endows it with an aura of splendid refinement, Chopard Manufacture enhances this new edition with a .....Story

Spotted in Paris: Universal Genève Space Compax Ref 885104 and Tri Compax Ref 222100 and 885101.

Avatar
amanico
During my Saturday watch shopping in Paris, I could see a bunch of eye catching vintage Universal Genève. The Space Compax, first, dating from the second half of the Sixties, reference 885104/01 It is claimed that this Space Compax was conceived to challenge the Speedmaster as a moon watch, which would explain the name of this watch, while it seems that it is, naturally, a diver chronograph, with its 250 meters water resistant case, its prominent crown and pushers, and its bezel. It is a rather big watch ... ...Story

The watches that shouldn't be missed at SalonQP 2018

Avatar
foversta
The last edition of SalonQP has just taken place in its usual place at the Saatchi Gallery in London. This edition marked a turning point for the event: new owner (Telegraph Media Group having sold its shares to Hearst UK), new dates (the show was postponed by 3 weeks), a general context which is currently rather unfavorable (the brands are wandering about the relevance of their participation in this type of event), the real question was whether SalonQP would regain a new lease of life. In fact, I expected ... ...Story

Blancpain X Fathoms. The " Epithoms " of the Fifty Fathoms?

Avatar
amanico
Invited by some friends from Red Bar ( Yes, Adam Craniotes, you were in the conversations, and in good terms, of course! ) we had a nice moment around the Fifty Fathoms, modern and vintage, at the Blancpain Paris Boutique. Among the watches I wanted to see and feel, there was one, which always had a special place in my heart and imagination, the X Fathoms. When I saw the first pictures, I immediately thought it was the Epitome ( the spelling on the title was just for fun and provocation ) of the Fifty Fathoms. .....Story
