Hands on review of the SUISSEMECANICA SM8

Avatar

I wish to come back today on a watch that was presented in 2012: the SUISSEMECANICA SM8. In fact, I have followed the brand since its first steps (I remember our appointments at the Salons Belles Montres and QP) and I always found that the SM8 was a singular piece that deserved more attention. The SM8 may appear at first sight as an imposing chronograph, with a very masculine design. And yet, by going into details, discovering it in use, it becomes much more subtle both from a technical point of view as well .....Story

There are some positive accidents, in life. I noticed a strange vintage diving watch in the window display of a famous parisian watch dealer, in... 2010. Two years after, the watch was still here, like if nobody wanted it.....Story

Hands on review of the Trilobe "Les Matinaux"

Avatar

The French watchmaking sector has been experiencing a real revival for several years. Well, to be more precise, I should rather talk about the dynamics driven by French creators and entrepreneurs because in most cases, their watches can't be considered as "French watches". Now, what matters most to me is not the country of attachment but the interest and the power of seduction of the projects. A watchmaking approach only makes sense if it brings something new...Story

Smaller brands, micro brands especially, reach a considerable audience online, in blogs, social media and the like. But as watches are entirely tactile objects their full character reveals itself only if touched and put on one’s wrist. Here the smaller producers face the barrier of lacking contact points (i.e. dealers) or networks that faciliate direct contact to their clients...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

Reservoir: the Longbridge collection

Avatar
foversta
Step by step, the young French brand Reservoir manages to impose its singularity on the watchmaking landscape. Its visibility grows, its distribution network expands and above all, its collection becomes larger as evidenced by the presentation of the Longbridge collection during the last edition of Baselworld. Reservoir offers first and foremost a very simple and effective starting point: the coherence between the design and the time display. The latter, based on the principles of jumping hours and retrograde .....Story
