Royal Oak Offshore movements are machine finished and not hand finished?

This example below, taken from the deconstruction by The Naked Watchmaker , showcases two defined interior corners on the 777 movement. While admittedly not the cleanest execution, shows some of the effort needed by hand to execute the anglage. The anglag

Blue Patek

The smoke fume blue dial of 5205G is very special and rare among patek dials. While the 5370P blue enamel dial you probably need to see it in person to find out if the blue colour suits you. Best, Henry Photo credits to website

Doctor Strange Jaeger LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar - 4 years!

This is an IWC kurt klaus movement that JLC used. They updated it recently with their blue enamel series so expect it to go into regular production one day and replace your model , notably it moved the offputting off centre year window inside.

Gronefeld Principia Automatic.

Breguet Classique 5177 blue enamel

I took it to the door in order to catch it with sunlight. The 5177 is superb, "even" with the date window, which does not bother me at all. You are right about the quircky shape of the date, that makes the date window even more likeable.

More impressions from my visit today to the Breguet boutique

New La Tradition blue dial Tourbillion extra plat 5367 with its fantastic (!) blue enamel dial. On the picture below how you would expect it to look like: BUT on the next picure you can see that the blue is not bluntly blue, but with a purple sheen too!:

A picture of my small Breguet collection.

I have always been strongly attracted to the specific aesthetics of the Breguet watches. These are "different" from the majority of what can be found on other watches. The quality is superb with a great attention to detail and their movements are of top

Was 2019 a good year for Jaeger Lecoultre?

Three points. 1/ Jaeger Lecoultre invested the high horology segment in a brilliant way: 2 new movements, the Cal 184 ( Gyrotourbillon Five ) and Cal 950 ( MGT Minute Repeater Perpetual ) and used the Cal 946 in the MGT Tourbillon Celeste, an evolution of
