My thoughts after Audemars and Richard Mille decision to leave the SIHH in 2020

Avatar

The path is traced out for Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille Let's be honest: the news of Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille departure from SIHH is surprising even if it is implacably logical. Personally, I didn't expect it in such manner and so quickly. It would be wrong, however, to consider in the same way the decision of these two brands and that of the Swatch Group (or others) with respect to Baselworld. The consequences are the same and a big watch fair is weakened again...Story

Box play: Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E 875 Speed Beat

I have started to share some boxes with you here in the JLC forum… Let’s continue with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E 875 Speed Beat. The players: White, With and Blue, Blue and Blue turned into copper AFAIK, the E 875 only came in three colour combinations, White-White, With-outer Blue-inner and Blue-Blue. I have seen some Blue-outer with White-inner dial but not very confident that combination ever existed originally. Except for the different dial colours, there were at least three different case backs...Story

Some pictures I could take thanks to our friend Holdemchamp I had the pleasure to meet after so many years exchanging points of view on the net! Bruce came with his Duometre à Chronographe, in platinum, which comes with an original grained grey dial, made in... Platinum, and a superb custom made blue strap, much better looking than the original black crocodile strap. The platinum Duometre à Chronographe is an old love for me, as I owned one like this with a different dial, though as mine was white grained ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Urwerk UR-111C

Avatar
foversta
The great strength of Urwerk is to have built an identity based on the wandering hours time display. Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei have created watches that are distinguished by the perfect coherence between design and display. But this strength can become a weakness. Despite the different evolutions of the concept that have marked the history of the brand, the risk is to give the feeling that Urwerk is struggling to get out of this way which raises questions about its ability to renew itself...Story

How to properly deal with heritage timepieces: a visit to the Blancpain Vintage Atelier

Avatar
shortys home
On my wishlist for further exploration, a visit to the Vintage Atelier at Blancpain in Le Brassus was very high up... and now I had the chance to meet with the team that takes care of all Blancpain timepieces prior to 1981. And of course I’d like to take you along by sharing my impressions... Located in the old farmhouse in Le Brassus, the heart of the Valleè de Joux, the Vintage Atelier occupies only one room with 4 watchmaker workplaces, but it has the opportunity to reach out to all Blancpain facilities .....Story
