Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Cartier Privé Tank Chinoise Skeleton Lacquered.

Avatar
amanico
I will say it straight, this Tank Chinoise Skeleton is one of the watches which pleased me the most, this year. I must confess that I don't know a lot about Cartier and that only a few watches from this brand have caught my attention, but here, I have strongly fallen in love. And, second surprise, the yellow gold version too! Almost every detail is exquisite, here. The case, first, which is a sublime contrast between polished ( the side case and lugs ) and brushed ( the bezel and the upper part of the lugs .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Date and Master Control Calendar Blue Dials.

Avatar
amanico
You certainly kept in mind that when we saw the new Master Control Line in 2020, we were hoping that, one day, a colored version would come. Some thought, logically, that a black dial would " land ". Logically as for more than 20 years, steel cases were associated to black dials, and we have in mind the " Black Series " from the late 90's, early 2000's, such as the Master Perpetual Calendar, Memovox, Ultra Thin 34, Geographic and so on. In that vein, we had a more recent wave of Master in Steel with black .....Story

WatchProSite Jaeger Lecoultre Manufacture Tour. The thread.

Avatar
amanico
For many years we wanted to organize a Manufacture Tour with Jaeger Lecoultre. Because Jaeger Lecoultre is one the most interesting watchmakers, because our site celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, because our relations with the brand are long and friendly. We wanted to make it happen in 2018 and in 2019 we were on to make it, it was in the tube and... The Covid came...Story

2022 Watches and Wonders: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Cal 948.

Avatar
amanico
If you are an avid reader of our Jaeger Lecoultre forum, this Master Grande Tradition Calibre 948 will remind you something, and more specifically, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time issued in 2017. The Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time, which was limited to 100 pieces. Indeed, the Master Grande Tradition Cal 948 shares the same concept,a flying and a tourbillon which makes one rotation all around the dial in 24 Hours AND a world time function, but expressed in a different way, should I say more... .....Story

Avatar
amanico
This year, Montblanc revisited another jewel from the Minerva Patrimony, with the 1858 Minerva Monopusher Chronograph Red Arrow. Here is the original chronograph, issued in the very late Thirties. Credit picture: Christies. It was a giant chronograph for that era, with a 46 mm case, housing a not-less giant movement, the Cal 19-9 CH, 19 Lines ( 42, 15 mm diameter ) beating at 18, 000 vibrations per hour...Story

MB&F Sequential EVO Chronograph - THE GREATEST CHRONOGRAPH INVENTION IN 100 YEARS!

Avatar
patrick_y
What's better than a Split Seconds Chronograph? The new MB&F Sequential EVO Chronograph! I had the distinct pleasure of seeing this watch last week in Geneva and all I can say... This is REVOLUTIONARY. An ALL NEW Chronograph Concept! A truly great contribution to Horology! What makes this watch special? Yes, you can see that there are two seemingly independent chronographs. But what is that button at the 9 o'clock position? Here is where the magic happens...Story

WS edition for weekend starting Friday 27th is Open Now! Theme: "Three Watches that never fail to make me Smile!"

Avatar
Subexplorer
... Hello dear friends! I'll have the pleasure to host this edition of our classic event WS starting today Friday 27th and ending Sunday 29th afternoon around 5 PM UTC. I'm sure all our friends own at least one (and most probable several) watches which never fail to bring a big smile to their faces every time they strap them to their wrists. The challenge is to share no more than three watches and tell us briefly the reasons they bring such a smile: probably a watch always provoking a big smile relates to .....Story

Ref. 5950A-001


lavrentivs
Introduced in 2010, the CHR 27-525 PS movement in this reference is a marvel of engineering being only 5.25 mm in height. This is all the more impressive considering it incorporates spilt seconds functionality. On top of this, it is a monopusher design with the pusher coaxial with the crown. Patek Philippe’s manual winding chronographs have always been special but this one dials it up to an eleven and to my mind, is one of the most beautiful chronographs made from any manufacturer...Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: Lange & Sohne Richard Lange Minute Repeater.

Avatar
amanico
The Richard Lange line certainly is one of my favorites among the different Lange & Sohne families. The first Richard Lange, classic, simple, beautiful, then the Richard Lange Pour Le Mérite, with its hidden sophistication ( fusée and chan, enamel dial ) and ... The Jumping Seconds, in platinum, in 2017, and in white gold, in 2019 are indisputably superb choices. This year, Lange comes with a masterpiece, sober, sublimely cold with its platinum case and its enamel dial, AND with one of the most prestigious .....Story
