smallest hint of how data can be leveraged

Apr 02, 2024,13:30 PM

So far I've captured data about 50 details for each of 350+ Breguet Classique, Blancpain Leman and Villeret references - case sizes, movements, metals, functions.

The data is surely still full of issues - for instance, does anyone know what strap width Breguet means by "X"? - but there's enough to illustrate the kind of perspective gathered data can bring.

Here is a plot of the diameters of references for those three families with the spikes at 36 and 38mm quite visible. 

With more data (to come!), it would be possible for instance to search for a watch with specific features.  Granted, one can do that in Chrono24, but that's limited to what's available at the moment....and fraught with data issues about how individuals characterize their watches - is it rattraprante or split seconds or multi-chrono!

remember, raw data here!

The one that I keep thinking about is the F. Piguet cal. 71, which was definitely a Blancpain favorite movement in the past, but which seems to be fully out of their repertoire and is now a favorite at Breguet
