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!…

Avatar
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

Furlan Marri: Chronograph Kickstarter Edition

Avatar
foversta
I had met Andrea Furlan during the SIHH 2019 during a discussion with Dominique Renaud. It gives me great pleasure to exchange with him again in a completely different context: that of his own project, carried out in collaboration with the collector Hamad A. Marri. Not surprisingly, the name of the brand that will be truly launched in a few days via the Kickstarter campaign starting on the 10th of March brings together the surnames of the two founders: Furlan Marri...Story

Hands on review of the Czapek Faubourg de Cracovie California Dreamin'

Avatar
foversta
A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since the presentation in 2015 of the Quai des Bergues, the first watch that marked the true launch of the new Czapek brand. Polish watchmaker Franciszek Czapek was known for having founded the Patek & Czapek & Cie brand with his compatriot Antoni Patek in 1839. Their collaboration lasted only a few years and Franciszek Czapek founded his own company in 1845. The disappearance of Czapek in 1869 and the interruption of the company's activities meant that his .....Story

Hands on review of the Regulator Louis Erard x Vianney Halter

Avatar
foversta
It seems that Louis Erard has found the right formula. Thanks to recent collaborations with watch designers or makers, the brand is gaining significant visibility and strengthening its watchmaking legitimacy. Indeed, the announcement a few days ago of the release of the Regulator, designed with Vianney Halter, was perceived as an important event, relayed through the main information channels of the watchmaking community. Such media coverage and the success of the watch (the 178 pieces of this limited series .....Story

Hands on review of the Nomos Tangente ADM (Antoine de Macedo)

Avatar
foversta
The Tangente is Nomos' great classic, directly inspired by the Bauhaus type watches made by Lange and Stowa in the late 1930s. It is characterised by its round case, slim bezel and Arabic numerals with recognisable font. I owned a Tangente a long time ago and it was a watch that gave me a lot of pleasure. It was elegant without being too formal and timeless without being too classic...Story

The fireworks of wristshots of the Geneva Watch Days

Avatar
foversta
I'm back after 4 days spent in Geneva in the context of the Geneva Watch Days. This event was organized to give an opportunity to the brands to physically present novelties to the press (and the public during the last day) able to travel to Geneva. Jean-Christophe Babin was very instrumental in this organization and for him, it was very important to show that business remains active even during the Covid-19 pandemia. I can't agree more...Story

Introducing: The Parmigiani Fleurier Tondagraphe GT Annual Calendar and Chronograph Timepiece

Avatar
patrick_y
Introducing: The Parmigiani Fleurier Tondagraphe GT Annual Calendar and Chronograph Timepiece Parmigiani Fleurier is a top quality Swiss watch producer with in-house manufacture movements that are decorated to the highest quality. Originally a ultra-haute-horlogerie brand that at one point only tackled the most difficult projects like automatons, minute repeaters, and restoring historical timepieces (for the Patek Philippe Museum among other big institutional clients), it is a true pleasure to see Parmigiani ... ...Story
