“No man is an island” (except one) - Reprise!…

Avatar

This story really begins – as so many stories do – in a bar. A very expensive bar; in a very expensive hotel; in 2013. John McGonigle has travelled from his workshop in country Ireland to chilly Geneva in order to deliver a new watch. Quite conveniently for all concerned, his visit coincides with SIHH, so the town is awash with celebrity watchmakers, brand ambassadors, retailers and collectors...Story

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

Avatar
foversta
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

Some thoughts on the Breguet Hora Mundi Ref 5717, " Asia " in platinum.

Avatar

At the contrary of what its name suggests, it is rather a " Géographique " than a world time. Indeed, you have a window, at 6 o' clock, with the hour of the city which you can select through the crown / pusher at 8 o' clock. The date is subtly integrated at 12 o' clock, and you have a night and day indicator, to show you if the time zone selected is PM or AM. The dial is made of gold, " wave guilloché ", with a lacquer...Story

Hands on review with the Chopard Mille Miglia 2020 Race Edition

Avatar
foversta
Many of us don't want to think about the year 2020, but at least Chopard is giving me the opportunity to do so in a positive way with the Mille Miglia 2020 Race Edition Chronograph. While my tastes run much more towards the manufacture's LUC collection, I've always enjoyed the casual chic style of the watches from the partnership with the very famous Italian motor race. I think there is a real know-how on Chopard's part that is largely due to Karl-Friedrich Scheufele's passion for motorsports and classic ... ...Story

A few words about the F.P. Journe Chronomètre Optimum

Avatar
foversta
I wished to come back to the Chronomètre Optimum by François-Paul Journe. As we have been able to observe for many months, there is a growing interest around the brand founded by the French watchmaker. This is reflected in the strong performance at auctions and the high demand for watches from the current collection. The near-impossibility of obtaining a Chronomètre Bleu is reflected in the Chronomètre Souverain, and there is a kind of phenomenon that affects the entire collection...Story

Those who know me well know can witness that the 1858 Tachymeter is an important watch for me. Today, after 5 years of ownership, this love has even increased. There are two reasons behind the fact it is a very interesting watch for me. 1/ It made me change my point of view on watches...Story

Hanhart: reedition of the chronograph 417 ES

Avatar
foversta
Hanhart is one of those brands that are appreciated but whose notoriety does not go beyond the small circle of watchmaking enthusiasts. The situation could change, however, with the reissue of one of these emblematic models, the chronograph 417. The history of Hanhart began in 1882 when Johann A. Hanhart started its activity in Diessenhofen.....Story
