Avatar
foversta
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

Jaeger-LeCoultre asked me to hold a presentation about their watches and history…

blomman Mr Blue
Been a month of travelling for me… Family vacation, work trips and in the middle of everything, Jaeger-LeCoultre asked me to hold a presentation for some of their customers. Always good when you are invited as a guest speaker - no pressure, just fun! And to be asked to present something you are very passionate about, then even better. Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches and History – what could be more fun?! So earlier this week I flew over to Helsinki to meet up with the Jaeger-LeCoultre team. Helsinki is a very beautiful .....Story

SIHH 2019: A review on the Lange & Sohne Richard Lange Jumping Seconds in White Gold.

Avatar
amanico
With the unveiling of the Richard Lange Jumping Seconds in white gold / black dial, this year, I smiled. I smiled because when Lange introduced the first version of this watch in 2016, with its platinum case and its silver dial, I wrote: " The only thing I would have liked is a black dial, something more powerful, strong looking, maybe, or an enamel dial. " The 2016 version: Lange made my wishes come true. We don't have an enamel dial, that's fine, but we have a superb black dial made of silver, while the .....Story

SIHH 2019: Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetual, aka Gyrotourbillon 5. The review.

Avatar
amanico
INTRODUCTION Jaeger-Lecoultre has a curious habit... They give some very long names to their watches too often. So, please allow me to call the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetual the Gyrotourbillon Five, which is an appropriate name since it is the fifth chapter of the Gyrotourbillon saga which I reviewed here: A Saga which started in 2004, with the Master Gyrotourbillon One, followed by the Reverso Gyrotourbillon Two, in 2008 ( first unveiling in October 2007 ), then the Master ... ...Story

The following is a part of a longer conversation during a meeting between Mr Journe and myself as I was, at the end of the day, very kindly offered the opportunity to ask him a few questions. I of course grabbed this chance and asked him about where the collection is heading now. We had an interpreter translating between English and French. Please, have this in mind...Story

One of the top Baselworld surprises for me - Zenith El Primero A386 Revival


andrewluff
After spending the last few days in Basel, I have to say that one of the highlights and surprises of the whole 2019 show for me was the A386 Revival! On paper, this watch should not appeal to me as it not my normal style being quite classical and 38mm... however after getting a close up look at the trio, I must say that I think it is a stunning re-edition and one of the set will be destined for my collection. I was lucky enough to be able to compare the new versions against the original, other than now being ... ...Story
