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

Watches & Wonders 2020: everything is here but it lacks the essential

Avatar
foversta
Finally, the current health situation will have made it possible to test in a certain way what a virtual watch fair can be. After all, that was what some wanted when the question of the future of fairs was raised, not just that of Baselworld. But what is the purpose of these big events when an online presentation is enough? But yes, after all we don't see their aim since the pictures on Instagram, the videos can be considered as enough to fairly present the products? Well, the demonstration has just been ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Louis Vuitton Tambour Curve Tourbillon Volant

Avatar
foversta
Louis Vuitton has been working since 2002 to develop its watchmaking offer and make it credible in order it becomes consistent with the other components of its catalog. The acquisition of La Fabrique du Temps in 2011 demonstrates this ambition and provides the means to act in the high-end segment. The brand's greatest success is to have built a collection around a recognizable case (Tambour) and a favorite theme (travel). Being able to build an identity in such a short time is not given to everyone and, moreover, .....Story

Hands on review of the Hamilton Khaki Aviation Pilot Pioneer Mechanical

Avatar
foversta
Hamilton is a brand that works very well within the Swatch Group. Thanks to its history and its positioning, it offers watches at reasonable prices that appeal to both watchmaking enthusiasts looking for reeditions of classic models and customers who wish to acquire well-made mechanical watches without breaking the bank. It cannot be said enough: Hamilton's role is fundamental to the Swatch Group. The production volumes are not those of Tissot or even Longines but Hamilton has a key mission: to give taste .....Story

Hands on review of the Dietrich DD-1 (Dietrich Device n°1)

Avatar
foversta
Step by step, Emmanuel Dietrich is winning his bet, which consists in building a coherent brand with a recognizable identity. The Organic Time presented in 2014 had laid the foundations and surprised by its audacity, the Time Companion in 2017 had placed the brand on a Swiss made basis and the trajectory continues with the launch of the Dietrich Device in December 2019. I could also mention the Perception which is the top-of-the-range model but its price places it in a different dimension. That said, its .....Story

Hands on review of the Corum Coin Watch Year of the Pig

Avatar
foversta
The year of the pig ends on January 20th, so there are still a few more weeks to enjoy the pieces dedicated to this Chinese astrological sign. One of the most interesting watches around this topic is the Corum Coin Watch. Corum applies a well-mastered recipe: one that uses a silver coin to create the dial and the caseback to house it in a silver case. The interest of the watch lies in the 10 euro coin that comes from the Monnaie de Paris...Story

Avatar
foversta
I have just come back from Luxemburg after having attended the "Les Journées de la Passion" event which aim is to present the latest offer from a lot of brands to end customers. This event takes alternatively place in Luxemburg and Brussels and is always successful because the organizer manages to involve the local retailers. I always like this type of event during the last quarter because they allow me to do a kind a wrap-up of the year, to discover some of the latest novelties from the brands and of course ... ...Story

Hands on review of the David Rutten DR-01 Streamline

Avatar
foversta
Foreword: The pictured watch is a prototype and some details will be improved. In particular, a plate is missing on the caseback and the contrast between the numerals and the discs will be increased. David Rutten claims that he was born in Belgium but I do not think so. He comes from a very distant planet...Story

Hands on review of the Longines Heritage Classic

Avatar
foversta
Longines reserves a very nice surprise at the end of the year with the Heritage Classic model. This is certainly not the most spectacular or the most original watch. But it demonstrates once again the ability from Longines to reinterpret certain models of the past effectively. The Heritage Classic is inspired by a watch from the 30s which it takes the silvered sector dial characteristic of the time...Story
