So tomorrow we should have our traditional Francois Paul Friday. Inspired by Daandeluxes post, I have decided to change the concept this week to see what FPJ you are wearing for Christmas. Here in Denmark as well as some other countries we celebrate Christmas with a big dinner on the eve of the 24th. Since I am the chef in our household I will be moving to the kitchen in a few minutes to continue the preparations...Story

Rolex GMT MASTER 6542. THE census.

Avatar
amanico
The GMT MASTER 6542 is a relatively rare watch. How many were produced, it is hard to say, but if you keep in mind that, according to Rolex is a document dated from December 1959, only 605 of them were imported in the US, we can reasonably guess that for the rest of the world, you can multiply per 4 or 5 the production and sales of this reference, during its life ( 1954 / 1959 ) The Rolex document in question: So, we had circa 2500 / 3000 ( once again, it is a guess estimate ) Rolex 6542 made, which is too ... ...Story

Audemars Piguet: new 2020 references Code 11.59 Automatic and Chronograph

Avatar
foversta
As we all know, the Code 11.59 collection has generated a great deal of comment following its presentation at SIHH 2019. A lot of water has flowed under the bridge and the situation is now much calmer. I think we need to analyze the situation from a pragmatic point of view. Even though obviously the Code 11.59 collection is not as popular as the various Royal Oak references, my sixth sense tells me that it still works better than what I've been told...Story

Hands on review of the Czapek Faubourg de Cracovie California Dreamin'

Avatar
foversta
A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since the presentation in 2015 of the Quai des Bergues, the first watch that marked the true launch of the new Czapek brand. Polish watchmaker Franciszek Czapek was known for having founded the Patek & Czapek & Cie brand with his compatriot Antoni Patek in 1839. Their collaboration lasted only a few years and Franciszek Czapek founded his own company in 1845. The disappearance of Czapek in 1869 and the interruption of the company's activities meant that his .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Fagliano Rose Gold Burgundy. 2020 Novelty.

Avatar
amanico
A new watch? Not really, but a nice iteration of the Reverso Tribute Duoface, in rose gold and with a sublime Burgundy dial. Here, you will find the slider which is dedicated to the setting of the second time zone, hidden on the side of the case, at 6 o' clock. The combination of a rose gold case and the burgundy dial is sublime, in my opinion. The applied indices are golden, the red lacquer is very deep...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Hybris Artistica Duometre Spherotourbillon Pocket watch.

Avatar
amanico
In the Hybris Artistica line, born in 2014, there were three Duometre Spherotourbillon. A White Gold Sapphire case, limited to three pieces, a White Gold Blue Enamel, and a White Gold Blue Enamel pocket watch! This is this last one I invite you to rediscover, here. First, let me share a sketch of this watch, which is a good description: And another one, even more artistic: This is the first and the unique Duometre to be used in a pocket watch. The case is big, with a diameter of 48 mm, but since it is a pocket .....Story

A stay in Rome with the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Sandblasted Steel

Avatar
foversta
From the moment I became the proud owner of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Sandblasted Steel, I had only one idea in mind: to spend a few days with it in Rome. Simply because Bulgari is a brand founded in Rome and the influence of the Eternal City can be felt in the style of the watch. So, what better way to spend a few days in Rome than to come back in the city that inspired it? The Octo Finissimo Automatic is for me one of the most important watches of recent years. It's not the watch that launched .....Story
