10 Years of Bulgari Octo - The Factory Tour Part I

Avatar
patrick_y
I want to write about music. Actually I really want to write about the best watch someone can buy in the 10,000 Euro range, but let’s talk about music first. Music produced by bands today are often “manufactured” meaning a record label identifies a segment missing in the industry, and then “starts” a group specifically structured to appeal to its target demographic; they cast musicians that look the part and find writers that fit the genre. Enter watches...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Septantième 15th Anniversary.

Well, to avoid any confusion, this Reverso has been with me for 15 years. I got it in August 2007, it was released in 2002. How to describe this watch? Formal and precious, it is, with its elegant ruthenium dial and its sensual floral numerals, made in silver powder. Without forgetting the rare rectangular case, made in Platinum and the movement plates and bridges in.....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater Titanium: 15th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
When we look back at the Jaeger Lecoultre Catalogue, the Master Minute Repeater in titanium was, in my opinion, one of the most thrilling releases, in 2006, two years after the wonderful Master Gyrotourbillon One, and one year after the Master Minute Repeater in platinum. To be honest, I was in awe when I saw the Gyrotourbillon One introduced in the catalogue, but I was even more impressed with the Master Minute Repeater in platinum. Of course, the Gyrotourbillon One is horologically superior ( if we accept ... ...Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: Jaeger Lecoultre Master Memovox Timer Rose Gold.

Avatar
amanico
In 2020, Jaeger Lecoultre introduced the Master Memovox Timer, a new Memovox, using the new Master Case, totally revisited, refined should I say, thinner ( 12, 39 mm high ), even though it has the same diameter than the former one ( 40 mm ). The key points of the Memovox Timer were: - The blend of coolness and elegance, with a superb sunburst blue dial contrasting with the polished applied indices and an eye-catching alarm disc with engraved numerals. - The generous bevels on the lugs . The case gains in .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Cartier Privé Tank Chinoise Skeleton Lacquered.

Avatar
amanico
I will say it straight, this Tank Chinoise Skeleton is one of the watches which pleased me the most, this year. I must confess that I don't know a lot about Cartier and that only a few watches from this brand have caught my attention, but here, I have strongly fallen in love. And, second surprise, the yellow gold version too! Almost every detail is exquisite, here. The case, first, which is a sublime contrast between polished ( the side case and lugs ) and brushed ( the bezel and the upper part of the lugs .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Date and Master Control Calendar Blue Dials.

Avatar
amanico
You certainly kept in mind that when we saw the new Master Control Line in 2020, we were hoping that, one day, a colored version would come. Some thought, logically, that a black dial would " land ". Logically as for more than 20 years, steel cases were associated to black dials, and we have in mind the " Black Series " from the late 90's, early 2000's, such as the Master Perpetual Calendar, Memovox, Ultra Thin 34, Geographic and so on. In that vein, we had a more recent wave of Master in Steel with black .....Story

For many years we wanted to organize a Manufacture Tour with Jaeger Lecoultre. Because Jaeger Lecoultre is one the most interesting watchmakers, because our site celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, because our relations with the brand are long and friendly. We wanted to make it happen in 2018 and in 2019 we were on to make it, it was in the tube and... The Covid came...Story

2022 Watches and Wonders: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Cal 948.

Avatar
amanico
If you are an avid reader of our Jaeger Lecoultre forum, this Master Grande Tradition Calibre 948 will remind you something, and more specifically, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time issued in 2017. The Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time, which was limited to 100 pieces. Indeed, the Master Grande Tradition Cal 948 shares the same concept,a flying and a tourbillon which makes one rotation all around the dial in 24 Hours AND a world time function, but expressed in a different way, should I say more... .....Story
