Avatar
foversta
I have just come back from Luxemburg after having attended the "Les Journées de la Passion" event which aim is to present the latest offer from a lot of brands to end customers. This event takes alternatively place in Luxemburg and Brussels and is always successful because the organizer manages to involve the local retailers. I always like this type of event during the last quarter because they allow me to do a kind a wrap-up of the year, to discover some of the latest novelties from the brands and of course ... ...Story

Some Mare Nostrum pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
Sergio and myself are disagreeing on the Mare Nostrum. I am a big fan of this model, while Sergio doesn't like it. I think that the Mare Nostrum is a superb alternative / interesting option to or for a Panerai collection. The original was a prototype, made in 1942, housing an Angelus movement ( Cal 215 if my memory serves me well ), while the Pre Vendome versions ( 5218-201/A, 5218-302 and 5218-304 ) housed an ETA movement with a Dubois Depraz module, as well as the PAM 6, 7 and 8 and the latest PAM 716...Story

Avatar
foversta
Foreword: The pictured watch is a prototype and some details will be improved. In particular, a plate is missing on the caseback and the contrast between the numerals and the discs will be increased. David Rutten claims that he was born in Belgium but I do not think so. He comes from a very distant planet...Story

It is not a mystery I am a huge fan of the Mercator. A special, refined, original and poetic piece from Vacheron which basically, made two versions, one with solid gold dial, and the other one with Enamel Champlevé dial. If I am more fan of the Enamel Champlevé dials, I cannot deny the charm of the solid gold dials. Here is an enemel Champlevé, " Germany "...Story

Tudor Submariner 7924 Big Crown. The first pictures I took and a story about this watch.

Avatar
amanico
I found the very first pictures I took when I finally convinced the owner to sell this Tudor 7924 to me. And immediately, the feelings resurfaced and also the story behind it. I remember how I harassed him for months before he decided to let it go. And how excited I was to finally get it! Can you imagine? There were not that many made, in 1958, which is the only year of production, in the last quartal, moreover...Story

An event with Seiko in Paris

Avatar
foversta
I had the opprtunity to attend a few days ago an event organized by the Seiko France team in the Seiko boutique of Paris. We are very fortunate in France to have several Seiko boutiques in Paris or in other cities. They give the proof of the ambition of the Seiko Group in this country. The aim of the event was to attend a presentation of the assembly process of the Spring Drive movement done by a watchmaker coming from Japan: Takuya Nishinaka...Story
