Covid-19 means it's rubber strap time!

Avatar
Fastwong
After lots of hand washing and cooking while locked down in NYC these last few days I finally dug up the rubber strap for the EL2. This strap is awesome! I can't believe I never even took it out of the bag until now 🙄. This is how luxury rubber straps should be done. The biggest surprise is that the straps are vented! The rubber has recesses in the underside that vent out the sides of the strap, wow...Story

Hands on review of the Girard-Perregaux Quasar Light

Avatar
foversta
Girard-Perregaux unveiled the Quasar during the 2019 edition of Watches & Wonders Miami (that seems very far away ...). This watch can be defined as the reinterpretation of the Neo-Tourbillon Skeleton with a sapphire case. The ambition of the manufacture was clear: it was a question of giving a contemporary dimension to what makes the identity of the brand, the 3 bridges, in order to give it a new dynamic and rejuvenate its image. The Quasar is undoubtedly a beautiful watch with a significant contrast between .....Story

Dreaming of ....

Dear friends I am sure you all have to deal with the situation that is going on in the world right now - one way or another. We are all affected to various degrees by what has happened and what lays before us. I apologize for my absence in the last few days, as I have myself, been very busy, trying to reorganize (most of) my life and plan the best I can for the situation ahead of us. Discussing expensive watches, in this moment of global events, can seem like a meaningless and superficial undertaking - when .....Story

Lecoultre Compass Camera.

Avatar
amanico
As some of you may not know that, Jaeger Lecoultre sometimes explored other fields than watches only. They made some tools such as the millionometer which allows a great accuracy in the making of some watch parts and some other things such as this Compass Camera. This camera was not conceived and designed by the Company from the Vallée de Joux, but by Noel Pemberton Billing, who was an adventurer and a businessman among other things. But the project was achieved by Jaeger Lecoultre for the Company Compass .....Story

Patek Philippe Chronograph 5070G: 10 years of ownership!

Avatar
amanico
On the 16h of March 2020, it is 10 years that I own this reference, the 5070, in white gold. The first time I saw it, it was in the window display of the Paris Boutique, in 2005, and it was love at first sight. Curiously, it stayed a good month in the window display before someone bought it. I missed the opportunity to get it, but, it was just the beginning of the story...Story

Hands on review of the Louis Vuitton Tambour Curve Tourbillon Volant

Avatar
foversta
Louis Vuitton has been working since 2002 to develop its watchmaking offer and make it credible in order it becomes consistent with the other components of its catalog. The acquisition of La Fabrique du Temps in 2011 demonstrates this ambition and provides the means to act in the high-end segment. The brand's greatest success is to have built a collection around a recognizable case (Tambour) and a favorite theme (travel). Being able to build an identity in such a short time is not given to everyone and, moreover, .....Story

Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter: 4th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
Ordered when I saw it at the SIHH in Geneva 2016, I took delivery of my 1858 Tachymeter one month and a half after, on the 8th / 9th of March 2016, in Hamburg. My first photo of the 1858 Tachymeter: Since the first time I saw it, furtively in 2015, then on pictures at the end of 2015, it was love at first sight. I knew I had to get it. What I didn't know was that it became one of the watches I would wear the most! We even had a contest a few years ago about the watch we would wear in the longest time, and .....Story

Hands on review of the McGonigle Tuscar Banu in white gold

Avatar
foversta
I couldn't go to Dublin without saying hello to Stephen McGonigle. And I was very lucky: he was in Ireland during my visit and not in his workshop in Switzerland. I met Stephen and his brother John for the first time in Paris at the Salon Belles Montres in 2008, two years after the founding of the McGonigle Watches brand. I am very nostalgic for those good times when the Parisian salon was a big event and the only one truly dedicated to end customers...Story

A recent trip to Dublin gave me the opportunity to take these few photos of the F.P. Journe Elegante on my wrist. I particularly like to travel with it. I find it practical and without real constraints...Story
