I was really lucky to come upon this Timex Marlin Snoopy completely by chance. It is not that it is rare. But its production is truly limited. And it's hard to know in advance when Timex makes it available on its website...Story

Crazy Watches Roll Call.

Avatar
amanico
When we think Crazy Watches, we have some mad creations from Independents, in our mind... Such as: Max Busser and Friends: Urwerk: De Bethune: But not only! Even the generalists made or still make some horological UFOs. Ulysse Nardin is the first I am thinking of, with the Freak and the Innovision: Innovision 2007: Innovision 2017: Girard Perregaux, with the Laureato Tourbillon with Spinnel Bridges; Vacheron Constantin, with the Sputnik: And Jaeger Lecoultre, with the Extreme Lab: Blancpain: This is not a ... ...Story

Jaquet Droz: 2019 novelties

Avatar
foversta
The 2019 novelties from Jaquet Droz were presented in the context of the Time to Move event organized by Swatch Group, which brought together its high-end brands. I found the new Jaquet Droz collection particularly convincing. Certainly, the pieces presented are not surprising because they are part of the usual stylistic trends of the brand. In fact, some of them are evolutions of existing models...Story

Now time is coming to look at the main course of the menu I mean the watches which were presented at the 2019 edition of Baselworld. I will write a quick report per main brand before doing reviews in more detail of the watches that I like the most or which deserve a more precise analysis. In the meantime, here is my selection, inevitably subjective, of the 15 most attractive watches in my eyes. To make this selection, I only considered brands that were officially in the Baselworld fair and not those that .....Story

And the focus was clear: let's speak about vintage watches! Actually, this topic was not chosen by chance. Of course, it is the fav topic of Simon, the leader of Red Bar Paris and of some very distinguished members of the French watch community...Story

Another one bites the dust! This time the Doxa SUB 300T Sharkhunter. The Synchron version with meter on the bezel instead of feet and without the Aqua-lung. If I understood Bill correctly, this must have been a watch for the European market hence the meter scale and missing Aqua-lung/U.S. Divers Co...Story

A retrospective view on my year 2018.

A rich year, this year, with some excellent and a few less good moments. All starts, for a watch lover and moderator, with the SIHH and its series of novelties. Was it a good SIHH? In terms of novelties, there were some highlights. Jaeger Lecoultre with the new Polaris line of watches, of course...Story

Overview of deadbeat seconds watches and calibres (please contribute)

Avatar
KMII
Every now and then I find a topic or theme in horology that awakens my curiosity (high frequency watches: has been one). The latest one are deadbeat seconds watches, also known as jumping seconds or seconde morte pieces. Unlike the high frequency topic, which has been a collecting theme of mine for a while, this is more of an Umberto Ecco style ‘anti library’ for me so far - something yet to get into. I find the idea of a mechanical watch that to the uninitiated looks like a quartz quite appealing and such .....Story
