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

My top 15 selection of Baselworld 2019

Avatar
foversta
Now time is coming to look at the main course of the menu I mean the watches which were presented at the 2019 edition of Baselworld. I will write a quick report per main brand before doing reviews in more detail of the watches that I like the most or which deserve a more precise analysis. In the meantime, here is my selection, inevitably subjective, of the 15 most attractive watches in my eyes. To make this selection, I only considered brands that were officially in the Baselworld fair and not those that .....Story

A few days ago a very nice event took place in the Breitling boutique of Paris, rue de la Paix. An event organized by Breitling France and Red Bar Paris. And the focus was clear: let's speak about vintage watches! Actually, this topic was not chosen by chance. Of course, it is the fav topic of Simon, the leader of Red Bar Paris and of some very distinguished members of the French watch community...Story

Doxa SUB 300T Sharkhunter bites the dust! :)

Another one bites the dust! This time the Doxa SUB 300T Sharkhunter. The Synchron version with meter on the bezel instead of feet and without the Aqua-lung. If I understood Bill correctly, this must have been a watch for the European market hence the meter scale and missing Aqua-lung/U.S. Divers Co...Story

A retrospective view on my year 2018.

Avatar
amanico
A rich year, this year, with some excellent and a few less good moments. All starts, for a watch lover and moderator, with the SIHH and its series of novelties. Was it a good SIHH? In terms of novelties, there were some highlights. Jaeger Lecoultre with the new Polaris line of watches, of course...Story

Overview of deadbeat seconds watches and calibres (please contribute)

Avatar
KMII
Every now and then I find a topic or theme in horology that awakens my curiosity (high frequency watches: has been one). The latest one are deadbeat seconds watches, also known as jumping seconds or seconde morte pieces. Unlike the high frequency topic, which has been a collecting theme of mine for a while, this is more of an Umberto Ecco style ‘anti library’ for me so far - something yet to get into. I find the idea of a mechanical watch that to the uninitiated looks like a quartz quite appealing and such .....Story

foversta
The partnership between Bucherer and the brands that are sold in its stores is growing, and new models are being featured on a regular basis in the famous retailer's Blue Editions collection. Moser is one of the brands that have already contributed to this collection and is back on stage at the end of this year with two new pieces: the Endeavor Diamonds Bucherer Blue Editions and the Heritage Bucherer Blue Editions. I want to go back with more details to the latter because it marks an important step for Moser ... ...Story

The Asian Snowflake Seiko SBGA211G This dial is really cool when you come close to it. The Grand Seiko Snowflake is a unique watch. The blue secondhand made a great contrast to the dial. The titanium case and bracelet and the size of 41mm diameter and 12,5 mm thick feels well balanced in the hand...Story

On the sidelines of the SalonQP 2018

Avatar
foversta
When the SalonQP takes place, you always have the ability to meet watchmakers or brands which take advantage of the event to show their latest creations to people who go to London. I was able to take advantage of my stay in London to discover other watches that did not emanate from the official exhibitors of the salon. A visit to the Charles Frodsham boutique on Bury Street was a must and is mandatory if you travel to London soon. The Double Impulse Chronometer Wristwatch is indeed one of the most ambitious .....Story
