Independent Master Watchmakers in between Book Covers

Avatar
BjoernM21
The internet is a wonderful information source when looking for details on subjects not covered by main stream publishing. About two years ago I spent some time to gather information on independent master watchmakers from websites, particularly reports about atelier visits (to copy and print for more convenient access when researching, or for reading at a convivial place). It looks like a good move, because in the meantime many photos on the web are no longer accessible since Photobucket has changed licencing ... ...Story

The first watch from Cyril Brivet-Naudot: the Eccentricity

Avatar
foversta
I am very proud to present the first watch from Cyril Brivet-Naudot because it testifies, like the chronometer from Jean-Baptiste Viot a few years ago, the resurgence of ambitious projects in France in the segment of independent and creative watchmaking. I'm not afraid to write it: Cyril Brivet-Naudot's watch is a real French watch for several reasons. Cyril Brivet-Naudot is French, based in France (and far from the Swiss border) and is the worthy heir, on his mother's side, of a watchmakers' family. And .....Story

Nicolas posted about it yesterday: last Wednesday, Breguet organized a party to close the Classic Tour day organized in Paris. But what is the Classic Tour? Actually, it was organized in Paris after a first edition in London several months ago. The aim of this Tour is to invite clients and journalists to discover the key locations which symbolize Breguet's life and achievements and which create a focus on high-end craftsmanship. It is the reason why the guests could visit the mythical Breguet locations in .....Story

Vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms: A story of Tornek Rayville.

Avatar
amanico
I got my first Tornek Rayville in 2008, after some years of searches and hunt. You can imagine that the moment was quite intense. A Tornek Rayville! Mine! Finally! A military watch which made and still makes a lot of watch aficionados dream. I owned it for four years, till the day I was given the choice to make a trade between my Nr 103 ( All the TR 900 are numbered, at the exception of a very few, but the question remains to know if these " sterile " were issued or not, and the Number 20.....Story

Girard-Perregaux WW TC Small Seconds Versus 1966 WW TC.

Avatar
amanico
Here we have two very nice world time watches by Girard Perregaux, the WW TC Small Seconds, and the 1966 WW TC, WW TC standing for world wide time control. Girard Perregaux didn't wait to see Patek releasing its iconic World Time, in 2000, with the reference 5110. The very same year, they unveiled a world timer + a chronograph in the same watch/ But we had to wait till 2009 to see Girard Perregaux releasing a simpler and more sober version, the Small Seconds, which also came with a superb dark grey dial: ... ...Story

Identifying future classic Rolex from the 1990-2018 era - Part I: Rolex 16610LV

Avatar
Baron - Mr Red
I was recently chatting with a friend. He was bemoaning the fact that the current “hot” steel Rolex were just impossible to get from an AD and were now trading at a substantial premium in the grey market. A steel Daytona 116500 is now fetching $18,000+. I saw the new GMT Pepsi offered at over $20,000...Story

A review on the 2016 Rolex Air King Ref 116 900.

Avatar
amanico
The Rolex Air King 116 900 is not a strange watch, it is a strange Rolex. When it was unveiled, at the 2016 Basel Fair, it generated some strong comments: " The dial is too messy " was one of the comments we could most often read. It is not every day you can see a Rolex reference which doesn't look like another one. The GMT MASTER has its own personality, so is the Submariner, the Sea Dweller, at the exception of the Deep Sea Dweller James Cameron, the Daytona and so on...Story

Hands on review of the Breitling Navitimer 8 Unitime

Avatar
foversta
Much has been said and written about the Navitimer 8 collection since its presentation earlier this year. It is to date the most visible embodiment of the strategic orientations of the new management team of Breitling, with Georges Kern at its head. The fact that many speak about this collection is a first win for this team: Breitling is back on the front of the stage with a renewed ambition and increased visibility. The path however is not strewn with rose petals...Story
