My crazy summer selection of 12 watches.

Why 12? Some may wonder. But it is quite simple. Most of the rest of the year, I wear the same watch for at least two weeks. Sometimes for a a full month. That's the way I like to enjoy my watches. And to be honest, I don't have the time to go at the bank taking watches off the safe. Banks are close

Hentschel H1 Chronometer P20. Happy Second Anniversary!

In late June 2022, the first Hentschel H1 Chronometer P20 landed on our wrists. I got mine a bit later in late July, but it is time to celebrate our " Baby's " second birthday! With time passing, I love it more and more, I have to say, and I wear it quite regularly. The Hentschel is not a show off w

Best Watch Collaboration Pieces

Watch collaborations are almost always a bad idea. How many brands has Ferrari partnered with? GP (who's now with Aston Martin), Panerai, Hublot, and now Richard Mille? Not only are collaborations fleeting and "in-the-moment" but they're rarely done well. Some collaborations are a match in one area

Where are we with watches? Some thoughts on the current watch world.

That may sound like a strange question on a watch forum. We are all here because we are watch fans and lovers, but the question remains. I had this discussion many times, with a lot of friends, through private message or in person, recently. Indeed, for some years now, the watch fair(s) are less and

Here are some relatively good photos I found on the net about this " Le Mans " Daytona, from 2023, which was produced only one year in white gold.

Breguet 3237 Chronograph " Tuxedo " Onyx dial.

We can objectively say that the 3237 with this Onyx dial is rare. I only saw 4 during all these years, 3 in photos, one in person, which led me to take some photos to share with you. It seems that there is a 5th one hidden in another collection, as well as at least one in yellow gold. The 3237 Onyx
