An outstanding chronograph, the quality feel and the attention to detail is just on another level.

I had to catch up on various heated discussions on Minerva as MB, lack of marketing etc, value retention etc So few very personal opinions. I think it is time to move on on the branding and focus on the watches. Right or wrong a decision was made to not u

For vintage Omega buffs: who can spot . . .

. . . but I couldn't think of another description. Perhaps 'metamorphosis' (or metamorphosed) or 'transmuted' would be more fitting. In any case, I don't think it's realistic a cal 344 would be modified with both wheels and regulator enhanced to chronomet

Review of all the novelties from Watches and Wonders with live pictures

It was a fantastic year for Patek Philippe, with the release of new references and the introduction of a fantastic new complication. Let us begin with the new Calatrava reference 5226 and the new novel complication combining for the first an annual calend

Cal 16.29 finishing...

And also, that Villeret architecture and how they do chronographs, is the best. Better than even the Lemania movement architecture in some ways. Of course, the modern movements are easier to adjust, easier to service, and easier to assemble. The Patek Phi

Cal 16.29 finishing...

I've seen some of the most expensive Patek Philippe timepiecess. And they're well finished. Even the lower end Patek Philippe timepiecess are still well finished. It's not fair to compare finishing between Patek Philippe and Minerva Villeret. The Villeret

Honestly how could you not like this watch?

Grand feu enamel dial, Ti case with beveled lugs, gorgeous movement and Rattrapante. It literally has just positives screaming in it. I’m a big fan of the orange touches makes the watch a lot more playful. I apologize for my bad pics which is my MO. Needl

Montblanc Villeret Exotourbillon Rattrapante. A Masterpiece of fine horology.

Maybe the finest watch from Montblanc Villeret. Here we have: - A manual winding chronograph with a Rattrapante which is not modular, but integrated. - A sublime Tourbillon with its hyper finished bridge which requires one week of work. - Enamel dial. - O

Lasting impression (and needing your advice): A watch that almost knocked me off my chair...

I can’t go wrong. But this is a very „important“ decision for me. And it’s about a lot of money… so I don’t want to make a mistake. Like you I am not the greatest tourbillon fan. A tourbillon today horologically doesn’t not really make sense in wrist watc

I am after refinement AND coolness. I think the term "coolness" is very flexible and subjective, mon ami. The Montblanc Star Legacy Suspended Exo Tourbillon (this is the full name) is definitely the more "classic" watch but no less "cool" for me. Look at
