Show us your Journe, or whatever you’ve got today. My go-to featherweight today; pretty much the only Journe I’ve been wearing the last year or more. Weather is cooling here, coming into autumn my favourite season. ...Story

Newsflash: Jaeger Lecoultre Tribute Minute Repeater. A new Reverso, a new Minute Repeater.

Avatar
amanico
A new Reverso and a new Minute Repeater? Certainly not, for two reasons: We cannot forget that in 1994, Jaeger Lecoultre issued, for the first time, a minute repeater in a Reverso, which was quite challenging, at that time, because a minute repeater needs some space to fully expresses its melody. And that was a bit the problem of this Reverso, as it was not the best sounding one. The other Reverso which is worth being mentioned is the Reverso Minute Repeater à Rideau, unveiled in 2011. Here, the sound was .....Story

My selection of the watches around the 2021 edition of the Geneva Watch Days

Avatar
foversta
One of the main successes of this Geneva "back-to-school week" was to gather a number of meetings and presentations around the Geneva Watch Days. The line-up was therefore much broader than that of the brands officially participating in the event, which enabled visitors to have a representative view of the year's new products. There were three types of alternative presentations: those made in the Baselworld pop-up, those made in the boutiques (like Purnell's showroom or the Salon des Horlogers for independent ... ...Story

The 2021 edition of the Geneva Watch Days was a welcome opportunity for the watchmaking community to meet again with great pleasure. Beyond the joy of the reunion, it gave to the brands the opportunity to present their latest novelties as well as the watches that were unveiled since the beginning of the year. The event was a sort of crossroads between, on the one hand, this review of the last few months and, on the other, the projection towards the end of the year with, for certain brands, the prospect of ... ...Story

Alpine A 110: My second stage of improvements is done.

Avatar
amanico
I will basically have four stages. The first stage, I already reported, was about the chassis, mainly: I put the Chassis of the S version in my Legende: Bigger anti roll bars, stiffer suspensions, new light rims, different geometry settings, and some other delicacies, such as a light lithium battery... The second stage is more mechanical: four changes have just been made, in July: - A titanium exhaust, which has a superb sound ( 89 Db with the closed valves, 102 Db with the open valves ), which is very nice ... ...Story

Patek Philippe Moonphase

Avatar
Horology_Ancienne
Vintage Patek references up until the 3970/3940 boasted a very rich enamel moonphase with handcrafted accompanying gold stars and moon disc. For reference, slide 2 of this post shows a 2499 moonphase and slide 1 is of a 3970 moonphase. The enamel moonphase of the 2499 is a very rich navy blue that has a wonderful and radiating texture. The blue is engraved and filled with the gold stars and moons so they don’t sit on top of the disc...Story
