Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Perpetual Calendar in Steel and in Rose Gold.

Avatar

In 2018, Jaeger Lecoultre decided to widen the scope of the iconic Polaris, which since 1965 and the unveiling of the first model is, basically, a diving Memovox, re-edited in 2008. So, 4 years ago, Jaeger Lecoultre came to the SIHH in Geneva with a whole family of Polaris, and not only a water resistant alarm watch. Since then, we had the Polaris Automatic ( no date, no alarm ), the Polaris Date ( No Alarm ), the Polaris 50th Anniversary ( Alarm and Date ), the Polaris Chronograph, the Polaris Chronograph ... ...Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A view on the Montblanc 1858 Unveiled Secret Minerva Monopusher Chronographs.

There are more and more fans of Montblanc Minerva Chronographs, with years passing, and rightly so. Basically, you have two gorgeous manual winding movements, the Cal 13.21 and the much bigger Cal 16.29 whose level of finishings is among the best, IF NOT the best. If you are a fan of fine movements, you might have been tempted to wear your beloved watch upside down, I mean with the back side instead of the front side,which is not very practical nor comfortable, except if you have a skeleton watch or a watch ... ...Story

My friends, For some years now, I have wanted to organize a visit to the Jaeger Lecoultre Manufacture. It was first planned in early 2020, but you know too well why it couldn't be achieved. Since then, we have tried to find the good moment. And this moment has arrived! It will be on the 9th of June 2022, for the whole day...Story

I love this watch. I keep thinking of the dial as a type of art piece. The way it has infinite depth and at the same time takes on the surroundings bu the mirror dial. Anyone else wearing a Journe to celebrate Friday? I wish you all a great weekend...Story

The incredibly rare titanium Pateks: Only 12 ever produced? [Answer updated on May 5, 2022: They are now 13! :-)]

Avatar

If Patek limited editions are reasonably rare, and unique versions produced for special collectors are (in modern times) even more exceptional, titanium pieces appear to be among the most exclusive and prestigious of the entire Patek production. So for some reason my friends, I got very curious about this topic during the past couple of days, and made my small "research" on the web. Here's the stunning result: It appears that only *12* (twelve!) titanium Patek wristwatches are known to have ever existed. .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Star.

Avatar

The Rendez Vous is a line which was born in 2019. A line which gave birth to some marvels, such as the Celestial or the Moon. This year again, Jaeger Lecoultre decided to give to the Rendez-Vous a new complication, dedicated to the Celestial Universe, which they strangely call Dazzling Star, while I would have rather called it Shooting Star. I will say it straight, this watch is a summit of poetry and romanticism...Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the new Ulysse Nardin Freak S.

Avatar
amanico
Aaah, the Freak... Here we are facing an Horological UFO which was born in 2001, a real stroke of genius from Ulysse Nardin, a watch which was and still is unique in its kind. The original Freak on its way to meet the " S " Sister: Frankly speaking, I consider all the versions from 2001 to the latest one, the Freak S, as real Freaks, with the exception of one, issued in 2019, the Freak X. Let's first remember what a Freak is: It is a watch without hands, without a dial nor a crown and with a Carousel movement, .....Story

C'est le weekend! It's the weekend! Time to shrug off the work week, and now focus on the weekend and what we personally like and enjoy! With W&W recently past us, we're all focusing on the new things... Focusing on what to call our favorite ADs, and beg them for a watch that we will add to our collections and probably only wear once or twice a year. Few pieces this year inspired me tremendously at W&W, so I find myself looking into the past... The things that got away.....Story
