Friends, When it comes to Quartz watches, I usually try to stay away as far as possible. However, we cannot ignore the Quartz development especially as it had such a huge impact on the Swiss watch industry in the 70s and 80s, ending many smaller manufacturers long history. The idea seemed striking at that time. More accuracy, lower maintenance, easy user operation etc etc etc., but not many saw the dire consequences...Story

A Nice Way to Address Connoisseurs: Report from Page & Cooper’s Independents' Day in London (attention: image-heavy!)

Smaller brands, micro brands especially, reach a considerable audience online, in blogs, social media and the like. But as watches are entirely tactile objects their full character reveals itself only if touched and put on one’s wrist. Here the smaller producers face the barrier of lacking contact points (i.e. dealers) or networks that faciliate direct contact to their clients...Story

Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater Titanium: Time to celebrate its 11th birthday.

Avatar

Unveiled in 2006, it took me 1 year and a half to find a solution to get it, which I achieved to do on the 31th of July 2007. A quick trip in Belgium, to pick it, and a total excitement since the first minute. I don't count the times I played with the minute repeater, the hours I spent admiring the details of the dial. Sometimes, I had to refrain, because the family and friends wondered why I spent so much time looking at the dial.....Story

Hands on review of the Richard Mille RM11-03 Le Mans Classic

Avatar
foversta
Le Mans Classic is an event of extreme importance for Richard Mille. At each edition, the watch brand unveils a commemorative piece, but its commitment goes far beyond the presentation of a novelty. First of all, Richard Mille is not a mere sponsor but the partner and the official timekeeper of Le Mans Classic. Then, the history of the brand is intimately linked to the automobile event one since Richard Mille has been committed since the very first edition...Story

I already wrote that... You remember the first moments of ownership of some watches in a very accurate way. This is the case for my Breguet Type XX Platinum, Salmon dial, for my Patek 5110P, for my Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater, Reverso Septantième and Duometre à Chronographe, for the Polaris 1965, and, among others, my Ulysse Nardin Sonata. In 14 years, I had the time to live many, good or bad, moments with that Sonata...Story
