SIHH 2019: A review on the Jaeger- Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds Boutique Edition.

Avatar
amanico
First of all, please allow me to call it Reverso Burgundy. Jaeger LeCoultre always had the bad habit to choose very long name for their watches... The Reverso Burgundy is the second chapter of the Tribute Small Seconds, which was born, last year, with a blue dial. The Reverso Burgundy has everything in common with the " Blue ", at the exception of the dial...Story

Breguet: 2019 novelties

Avatar
foversta
Forewords: the prices below are available in France with VAT. 2018 was an extremely important year for Breguet considering the launch of the new Marine collection. 2019 seems to be quieter and can be considered as a year of consolidation for the brand that brings small changes to its collections. I'm not going to blame Breguet for introducing a limited number of novelties: on the contrary, I think it's the right strategy, especially in this segment...Story

Jaquet Droz: 2019 novelties

Avatar
foversta
The 2019 novelties from Jaquet Droz were presented in the context of the Time to Move event organized by Swatch Group, which brought together its high-end brands. I found the new Jaquet Droz collection particularly convincing. Certainly, the pieces presented are not surprising because they are part of the usual stylistic trends of the brand. In fact, some of them are evolutions of existing models...Story

I was making a Sunday roast and while it was finishing, I had a few moments to play with the CB. The Chronometre Bleu has become my favorite summer watch. Easy to wear and playful. The dial is so much more attractive in bright light than on a gloomy day, where I prefer the CS...Story

Laurent Ferrier Tourbillon Grand Sport On The Wrist review.

Avatar
amanico
Announced a few weeks ago, I was impatient to discover this new opus from Laurent Ferrier. Could you imagine that one day, Laurent Ferrier could release such a watch? Why not, after all? At first sight, this Tourbillon Grand sport disorients the Laurent Ferrier Aficionado who is more used to classic designs with round, cushion or rectangular shapes. Here we dive right into the Seventies, with a case which makes you think to some Genta Creations, such as the Patek Nautilus, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, and ... ...Story

The Reverso Tribute Duoface is a superb, interesting and friendly watch. The concept is simple: The Reverso Tribute Duoface is a " two watches in one ". On one side, the classic time, Hours Minutes and Seconds. On the other side, a second time zone, for those of us who travel and who have to adapt themselves to two different time zones...Story

Baselworld 2019: Rolex

Avatar
foversta
Despite its significant production, Rolex presents finally few novelties every year. The ratio of number of novelties / annual overall production must be among the lowest in the industry. A sign doesn't deceive: when I leave Basel, I have a clear vision of what Rolex has presented. On the other hand, I find it difficult to recall with the same precision what the other actors with important production volumes presented...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater Perpetual. A quick review.

Avatar
amanico
After the introduction of the masterpiece of the year, the Gyrotourbillon Five, at the SIHH in January, Jaeger Lecoultre comes back, 4 months after, with another big piece, the Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater Perpetual, which I will call the " Minute Repeater Perpetual ". This new watch is an unexpected challenge. Indeed, you certainly remember what I wrote about Minute Repeaters using automatic watches. In short, I complained about the fact that the Minute Repeater was such a prestigious complication .....Story

A visit at the Paris Breguet Boutique. Part Two: A review on The Breguet Classique Triple Calendar Moon Phase reference 3330.

Avatar
amanico
I had six goals when I visited the Paris Breguet Boutique, and I was lucky to score all of them, thanks to the kind collaboration of the Boutique Team, my contact at Breguet, and Mr Emmanuel Breguet. One of them was to review the Classique 5177 Blue Enamel, which I recently put on line, the other was to see the Ref 3330 and its ancestor. Why the 3330? Simply because it is one of the most exquisite and romantic Breguet watch I know, and, in my opinion, an icon. The one I will show you here is in white gold...Story
