It’s quite nice and aged beautifully. Thanks for sharing!

In the beginning of enabling different colours to lumina (remember this project started in 2000 and the watch was released on 2002) Richard (Page, owner of TimeZone) in cooperation with Michael (Schmutz. the Minerva importer to the US) and Jean-Jaquers (F...

o. Why a six is not complete? Minerva was to lazy to make a good dial. I understand your anger against a bad six Nicolas. I dislike the small seconds dial. A normal seconds hand had let room for a proper 6.

I chatted a couple of years ago with Richard Paige about how these Timezone LE’s came about: fascinating history of how 3 opportunities came together. I borrowed this shot years ago as none of mine came close to capturing how beautiful this watch is. I st...

Damn, I miss that watch. I still regret the sale. Being young and naive is tough business sometimes. I hope it's been loved and taken care of....lol!

Superb, Le Chef. Superb. [nt]

This one was cal 49 (indirect driven centre seconds) - while the first TimeZone LE was equipped with the direct driven small seconds caliber 48.

A lovely watch indeed!

This slightly larger cousin must be about the same age

I really, really like this watch, which has a special place in my heart. ...  

A beauty! [nt]

Keeper

I still have mine, along with my TZ LE and they’re both keepers. Occasionally I question keeping them and then I come to my senses.
