An on the wrist review of the Hentschel H1 Chronometer.

In December 2019, I had the opportunity to discover a new brand, Hentschel, during a dinner we organized with the Hentschel Team. We could see some of their watches, the H1 Chronometer, the H2 and the H2 Sport, but better, they let two watches for some 6 months to Mike H and myself, for us to live with them. Well, 3 months later, we faced an unexpected situation with the Covid and we couldn't do what we planned for them, mostly travels, but it was enough time to judge these two timepieces. I first had the .....Story

Hands on review of the Laurent Ferrier Galet Square LE Antoine de Macedo

Avatar

The Galet Square collection is my favorite within the Laurent Ferrier catalog. Introduced in 2015, it gave the brand the opportunity to use a steel case for the first time. I think this material is perfectly suited to this context. Indeed, the cushion-like "Galet Square" shape is particularly successful, embodying a chic yet casual style...Story

As we all know, there has been a strong trend in watchmaking for several years now: the versatile sport-chic steel watch with integrated bracelet. There are many reasons for the explosion in demand for this type of watch. I see two main ones. The first reason is linked to the success of the Nautilus or other Royal Oak watches, which may have encouraged certain brands to ride the wave and hope to benefit from a possible deferral of demand...Story

Hands on review of Pascal Coyon's Chronomètre Calibre 19 (Chronometer Caliber 19)

Avatar
foversta
Pascal Coyon cannot be blamed for spending too much time communicating to the detriment of his workbench activity. Because Pascal is rather discreet about his latest movement, the caliber 19. But does he really need to be visible? After all, the quality of his work is recognized by connoisseurs and his best ambassadors are the customers who were seduced a few years ago by the Chronomètre 1900 and its magnificent caliber. The most curious among us had, however, seen pictures of the caliber 19 that had been .....Story

Hands on review of the Urwerk UR-220 "The Falcon Project"

Avatar

The Urwerk watch I prefer is the UR-202 which stands out for its reinterpretation of the principle of wandering hours thanks to its telescopic minute hands. The time runs continuously, with the central carousel making a constant and permanent revolution. I also really like the UR-210 even though it has a different concept: the large retrograde hand. Basically both watches share the same central carrousel that carries three satellites, each with a rotating cube...Story

Hands on review of the Voutilainen Vingt-8 SC (28SC)

Kari Voutilainen's 28SC (central second) has just won the men's watch prize at the last edition of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. I had the opportunity to see it a few weeks ago during the Geneva Watch Days and I was very impressed by it. I can therefore understand the jury's choice. It is obviously not the most surprising watch of the year...Story

Hands on review of Remy Cool's Tourbillon Souscription

I met Rémy Cools for the first time two years ago, during the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the FP. Journe boutique in Paris. The location of this meeting was hardly surprising since Rémy had just won the "Young Talent Competition" organised on the initiative of François-Paul Journe, whose vocation for several years now has been to support and reward talented young watchmakers. Rémy Cools had won the prize thanks to an entirely hand-made tourbillon table clock, but it was a wristwatch that caught .....Story

Hands on review of the McGonigle Tuscar Banu in white gold

I couldn't go to Dublin without saying hello to Stephen McGonigle. And I was very lucky: he was in Ireland during my visit and not in his workshop in Switzerland. I met Stephen and his brother John for the first time in Paris at the Salon Belles Montres in 2008, two years after the founding of the McGonigle Watches brand. I am very nostalgic for those good times when the Parisian salon was a big event and the only one truly dedicated to end customers...Story

Hands on review of the Van Bricht Old Mind

I am wondering if Belgium is not becoming a country that counts in the watchmaking world. We can legitimately ask the question since Belgian professionals have distinguished themselves for many years and in very different segments. We obviously think about Ressence, Ice-Watch ... without forgetting the talented Belgian watchmakers who work within a lot of brands...Story
