An in-depth and on the wrist review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner.

Avatar
amanico
As you know, the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner was issued one year ago, in September 2020, more precisely. I have always been surprised by the timing issue of a diving watch by Jaeger Lecoultre. Indeed, to me, it would have been more appropriate to release the first watches at the beginning of the summer, or late spring, to offer the possibility to their owners to enjoy it in the best time of the year, and not just after summer... So, it took me ten months before receiving one, on loan, for an .....Story

A few words about the Patek Philippe Calatrava 5296 Limited Edition Hausmann

Avatar
foversta
The Patek Philippe boutique in Rome has quickly become one of the most popular locations on Via Condotti since its opening in 2019. Located on the former site of the Hausmann multi-brand boutique, it is of course managed by the retailer's team. The reception on the ground floor gives access to the lift to the seventh heaven... in fact the first floor, which includes the shop windows, the points of sale and the watchmaker's workshop...Story

Hands on review of the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Limited Edition Rome Boutique

Avatar
foversta
The Hublot boutique in Rome opened in 2019. It is ideally located, almost opposite the Trinità dei Monti stairs (the Spanish Stairs) and a few steps from Via Condotti. Unsurprisingly, Hublot presented a limited edition watch dedicated to this boutique a year later. As a lover of Rome, I tend to have a very subjective point of view about anything that refers in any way to the Eternal City...Story

Hands on review of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Tourbillon in steel

Avatar
foversta
No one can deny it: Vacheron Constantin's Overseas collection is enjoying growing success and the waiting lists for the various models are getting longer and longer. There are several reasons for this phenomenon. First of all, there is a very specific market context. The rising interest in versatile, practical watches with styles derived from the models created in the 1970s by famous designers such as Gérald Genta or Jorg Hysek has led to a shift in demand from collectors who are tired of waiting forever .....Story

Jaeger-Lecoultre fine chronographs. An assessment and a duty.

Avatar

Here we are talking about modern manual winding chronographs, which are outstanding from an horological point of view. Jaeger-Lecoultre came back with the Reverso Retrograde Chronograph, in rose gold, in 1996. To be precise, the minute are retrograde, here. Classic on the recto: Spectacular on the verso: The Cal 829, made in 14 Kt Rose Gold...Story

..and so I decided to pull out my old Resonance. It always takes some time to wind it, set the time and then finally sync it to a reference time. Not particularly user friendly but a process I really enjoy. Handeling the piece, this watch has so much SOUL...Story

Francois-Paul Friday - #FPJFRIDAY - new straps!

Avatar
n0wjsti
My straps have finally arrived, from FPJ HK! Because they do not provide any shipping, I had to get help from a friend to walk in to boutique to purchase, then ship to me. It is tough when there is no boutique or presence in my country; nearest in Singapore but borders are still mostly closed. Took some weeks to finally get them, but I am super happy! And some quick attempts (which remained mostly that... attempts only!) at macros: Have a good Friday, and fantastic weekend friends ...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Septantième: Happy 14th Anniversary!

Avatar
amanico
2007 was a rich horological year for me, as I got the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater in July and the Reverso Septantième in August, 2 " heavy " pieces in my collection. The Reverso Septantième was one of my targets as soon as it was announced, in 2001. It took me 6 years to find and fund it. Each time I tried it on my wrist, I was more and more convinced that it was a watch for me, despite its three " cons " which were the size of the case, the luminous hands and the retail...Story
