Hands on review of the MAD Edition 1 (MAD Gallery & Max Büsser)

Avatar
foversta
The big event of the last few weeks is undoubtedly the discovery of the MAD Edition 1, a watch sold by the MAD Gallery exclusively to MB&F clients who have registered as members of the "Tribe" and Friends (people who have collaborated on projects for the brand). In other words, the MAD Edition 1 is not available to the general public and it is the reason why I use the term "discovery" and not "presentation". Because there was no official presentation with fanfare, except for the direct communication to the ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Louis Erard & Alain Silberstein "La Semaine"

Avatar
foversta
It is a real firework display that Louis Erard proposes to us this month of June with the presentation of 3 watches resulting from the collaboration with Alain Silberstein. This triptych is, in my opinion, a great success because it manages to renew this approach already implemented a year and a half ago with the Excellence Régulateur. The key to this success lies in the brand new case which defines a new style, radically different from the previous watch. Yet there can be no doubt: whichever watch makes .....Story

Hands on review of the reissue of the Jacques Bianchi JB200

Avatar
foversta
The big day has come ! The Kickstarter campaign dedicated to the re-release of Jacques Bianchi's JB 200 has started on June 15th and it is already very successful what is not a surprise for me. Indeed, I have the impression of witnessing a real alignment of planets. The watch has many assets that go far beyond the pure quality of the product. This quality is undeniable and I was able to verify it thanks to the test of the prototype that I had the chance to test for several days...Story

Hands on review of the Louis Erard Excellence Email Grand Feu

Avatar

It cannot be said that Louis Erard is short of ideas. Under the impetus of Manuel Emch, it is finding opportunities to put its collections in the spotlight through partnerships with independent watchmakers or through products that highlight the crafts. In all cases, such approaches are a win-win situation for all parties involved: the work of the watchmaker or craftsman receives media coverage and gains visibility, while Louis Erard gains credibility by strengthening the watchmaking content of its watches. .....Story

Hands on review of the Squale 1521 Militaire Blasted

Avatar
foversta
I wanted to go back to one of the watches I own, the Squale 1521 Military Blasted. The 1521 collection is the base of the Squale catalog and its best-seller. The watches from this collection are distinguished by their case designed by Charles Von Buren and by their water resistance of 500 meters. This case could be purchased by other brands and one of the most famous examples using it is the Blancpain "Bund"...Story

Hands on review of the Trilobe "Nuit Fantastique"

Avatar
foversta
Note: the pictured watch is a prototype and the grained finish of the dial will be different from the one shown in the pictures. I remember my first meetings with Gautier Massonneau and Volcy Bloch, respectively founder and general manager of Trilobe. That was only two years ago and yet I feel that the young brand has come a long way since then. To measure this, one only needs to analyze the different iterations of the "Les Matinaux" collection, which show that since the launch of its inaugural model, Trilobe .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2021: Nomos Club Campus Orange and Grey, and Nomos Neomatik 41 Blue.

Avatar

Nomos never attented the SIHH nor Watches and Wonders. It is a first for them, and I must say that I am happy to see them joining in. Why? Because Nomos is one of these rare Manufactures to offer some decently priced products and which demonstrates that decent priced watches can go hand in had with quality and attractiveness. I still have to post a review on the Club, which I had the pleasure to see in the real life, but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you the 2021 novelties...Story

“No man is an island” (except one) - Reprise!…

pplater
This story really begins – as so many stories do – in a bar. A very expensive bar; in a very expensive hotel; in 2013. John McGonigle has travelled from his workshop in country Ireland to chilly Geneva in order to deliver a new watch. Quite conveniently for all concerned, his visit coincides with SIHH, so the town is awash with celebrity watchmakers, brand ambassadors, retailers and collectors...Story

Hanhart: reedition of the chronograph 417 ES

Avatar
foversta
Hanhart is one of those brands that are appreciated but whose notoriety does not go beyond the small circle of watchmaking enthusiasts. The situation could change, however, with the reissue of one of these emblematic models, the chronograph 417. The history of Hanhart began in 1882 when Johann A. Hanhart started its activity in Diessenhofen.....Story
