WatchProSite Challenge: Fantasy GPHG 2022

Avatar

In America, we have a little game called "Fantasy Football" and basically it goes like this... You predict which team will win the National Football League. Some people even go deeper, choosing their players and determining what each player scores and tabulates them. Using computer recorded statistics of the performance of all the players, you can determine if your dream team would win or not...Story

WatchProSite Interviews: Vincent Deprez - The Next Great Watchmaker

Avatar
patrick_y
Moderator Patrick_y interviews rising star independent watchmaker Vincent Deprez. A watchmaking prodigy who started working at Vacheron Constantin at the age of 15, to determine how thoroughly Vincent Deprez makes his watches on his own. Would I make a nice wrist model? I think so. I'm enjoying a lovely Vincent Deprez timepiece on my wrist...Story

MB&F Sequential EVO Chronograph - THE GREATEST CHRONOGRAPH INVENTION IN 100 YEARS!

Avatar
patrick_y
What's better than a Split Seconds Chronograph? The new MB&F Sequential EVO Chronograph! I had the distinct pleasure of seeing this watch last week in Geneva and all I can say... This is REVOLUTIONARY. An ALL NEW Chronograph Concept! A truly great contribution to Horology! What makes this watch special? Yes, you can see that there are two seemingly independent chronographs. But what is that button at the 9 o'clock position? Here is where the magic happens...Story

C'est le weekend! It's the weekend! Time to shrug off the work week, and now focus on the weekend and what we personally like and enjoy! With W&W recently past us, we're all focusing on the new things... Focusing on what to call our favorite ADs, and beg them for a watch that we will add to our collections and probably only wear once or twice a year. Few pieces this year inspired me tremendously at W&W, so I find myself looking into the past... The things that got away.....Story

From 1942 to 2022... A celebration of the famous Angelus Chronodato which became, for its 80th birthday, the Chronodate. There is much more than the final letter which changes, here. Angelus totally revisited its icon, to make it much more modern...Story

A possibly interesting visual history of a certain military pilot/racer chronograph aesthetic…

Avatar
Stoikos
To some, what I’ve put together below is no secret; but for me it’s been a truly fun ride and learning process. This story/post begins here: 2 mos ago I spotted and felt suddenly and bizarrely compelled to buy this 90s Speedy Auto Date MK40 (3513.53), issued only in Japan for a year as I understand. It looks nothing like a Speedy Moonwatch or Racing watch, other than the lyre lugs and the broad white & black pencil hands used in some Speedys over the years. The subdials are oriented 6-9-12; no hesalite; .....Story

Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage Manufacture, 2021.

Avatar
amanico
I wanted to share with you a new release from Alpina, which I find very interesting, the Startimer Pilot Heritage Manufacture. Interesting it is, for three reasons. First and most important, a reminiscence of the Past, with this modern bumper movement which belongs to a bygone era, as it disappeared at the end of the 50's, early 60's, replaced by the rotor we all know, now. The vintage: Here, a picture of the Cal AL 709, which is automatic, of course, beating at 28, 800 vibrations per hour and with a 38 hours .....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
