Hands on review of the Audemars Piguet Automatic Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin 26586IP

Avatar
foversta
We could guess it, the prototype RD#2 presented during the SIHH 2018 was not going to remain without continuation and it is in all logic that the final and marketed version was presented a year later. It was certainly not a small matter because there is always a big difference between the creation of prototypes and the homogeneous production of a certain number of pieces especially when the watch we are talking about is the thinnest automatic perpetual calendar in the world . In any case, as long as the watch ... ...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre A Chronographe, White Gold. 3 years of joyful ownership.

Avatar
amanico
The Duomètre à Chronographe certainly is one of my most important watch, I would even say inside and outside Jaeger Lecoultre. I said it many times, but since its unveiling, it has been an instant love affair, at the point I ordered it, in platinum, at the SIHH, in 2007. At that level of price, 40, 000 Euros for the platinum in 2007, it was not only a bargain, but most importantly, it had a level of finishing and decoration which I would dare to call incomparable in the Jaeger Lecoultre universe, AND, still ... ...Story

If you are lucky enough to visit the Jaeger Lecoultre Manufacture, ask your guide to show you the Heritage Gallery. There, you will have a small but impressive " aperçu " of the absolute richness and diversity of the legendary perpetual clock, best known under the name " Atmos ". The Wall of Atmos: There are two ways to treat this topic: - The Atmos is quintessentially an object of Design, which is totally true. Since 1927, yes, 1927 and probably not 1928 as generally admitted, and the first prototype of .....Story

Avatar

That's it, the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Lange One has just ended with the presentation of the tenth watch created in this context. From January to September, Lange & Söhne unveiled once a month a Lange One in a limited edition with the same decorative style. It was a way for the Saxon manufactory to pay continuous tribute to its most famous watch, which has always been included in its catalogue since 1994, the year of the brand's rebirth. On a personal level, despite my great love for .....Story

Hands on review of the Dietrich DD-1 (Dietrich Device n°1)

Avatar
foversta
Step by step, Emmanuel Dietrich is winning his bet, which consists in building a coherent brand with a recognizable identity. The Organic Time presented in 2014 had laid the foundations and surprised by its audacity, the Time Companion in 2017 had placed the brand on a Swiss made basis and the trajectory continues with the launch of the Dietrich Device in December 2019. I could also mention the Perception which is the top-of-the-range model but its price places it in a different dimension. That said, its .....Story

Indeed, the watches in question, which are evolutions of existing models are all referring to legendary motorsport drivers: Juan Manuel Fangio and Ayrton Senna. This is obviously not the first time that Tag Heuer .....Story

SIHH 2019: Girard Perregaux Esmeralda White Gold.

Avatar

Esmeralda: A magic name given to a pocket watch in the second half of the 19th Century. A rose gold Tourbillon Chronometer with gold bridges which received superb finishings: This legend saw the light, once again, in 2016, but in a wrist watch, this time. The 44 mm big, 14, 55 mm high case was in rose gold, sublime, even for the non colored gold watch I am. In 2018, Girard-Perregaux went farther in the homage, with the Esmeralda à Secret, a rose gold version with a decorated case this time, and a hinged case .....Story
