It is that time for our weekly ritual. Post a shot of your FPJ time piece to say happy weekend. To my regret, I haven’t had much time the past couple of weeks to hang out with you guys. My work has demanded all of my attention and energy and my power reserve is running low...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre 2020: The New Master Control Memovox and Memovox Timer have just been unveiled. A brief view on both of them

Avatar
amanico
1950 - 2020... Jaeger Lecoultre is celebrating the 70th birthday of its icon, the Memovox. For that significant birthday, the Manufacture decided to unveil two models, the Master Control Memovox, and the Master Control Memovox Timer. Let's first start with the MEMOVOX: The new Master Control Memovox is the heir of three watches, the reference 3150 for the dial ( 1950 ), the reference 3151 for the case ( 1950 ), and the reference E 855 which was the first to use an automatic movement AND a date ( 1959 )...Story

SIHH 2019: Hands on review on the Girard Perregaux Neo Tourbillon with three bridges QUASAR.

Avatar
amanico
The Quasar, hidden during the SIHH and unveiled at the 2019 Edition of Watch and wonders, is the fourth opus of the Neo Tourbillon with titanium bridges. Indeed, the first Neo Tourbillon was a revolution when it was introduced in the 2014 catalog. No gold bridges, but some sensual, even if less refined, titanium bridges, all in curves, but quite powerful, contrasting in an eye catching way with the warm 45 mm rose gold case. It had its charm, but for those who wanted to go farther in the concept watch look, .....Story

Hands on review of the FP. Journe Chronomètre à Résonance 2020

Avatar

I sometimes wonder what is the most emblematic model of the F.P. Journe brand. The Tourbillon Souverain most often comes to my mind because it is in line with the first wristwatch created by François-Paul Journe in 1991. But on reflection, I could consider the Chronomètre à Résonance as the most representative piece of his approach...Story

Another view on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater ( 2009 ).

Avatar
amanico
If there is a watch which is almost never discussed, the Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater is certainly one of them. Unveiled in 2009, 4 years after the Master Minute Repeater in platinum, it came as a surprise. And surprisingly, its case and dial didn't receive any variation the years after. Yes, this is a " one of its kind ", in yellow gold, limited to 100 pieces, inaugurating the new Master Grande Tradition case and line...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Jubilée / 1907 White Gold Enamel. The best Master Ultra Thin?

Avatar
amanico
Finding my Jaeger Lecoultre Ultra Thin watch is a work in progress for some years, now. The easy way would be to find a MUT 34 in platinum with its superb grey blue dial or a steel black dial. I am fine with the 34 mm case, the Cal 849 which I really love, but in 2013, I started to have my heart beat faster when I discovered the MUT Jubilée. Better than the MUT 34? THAT is the question! There are some big pros for the MUT Jubilée: - The " couteau " ( knife shaped ) case, which is truly spectacular and which .....Story

Watches & Wonders 2020: Panerai

Avatar

Panerai was one of the most active brands during this edition of Watches & Wonders. This is hardly surprising: Jean-Marc Pontroué wants to boost a dynamic and this must be seen. The year 2020 is placed under the sign of the 70th anniversary of Luminor, it is also logical that Panerai structures its main novelties around this theme. In fact, when I think about it, I believe that it should not be easy to develop new products at Panerai...Story

Watches & Wonders 2020: Roger Dubuis

Avatar
foversta
At least now with Roger Dubuis, things are easy to understand: the collections that are too far from the message of dynamism and of audacity that the brand wants to convey are gone. If the Velvet collection still exists to offer a proposal to female customers, the strategy is clear: Excalibur, Excalibur and Excalibur. I fully understand this strategy. The brand produces only a few pieces per year, has a specialty among others (the flying tourbillon), so it is better to focus on what it can do best with watches .....Story
