Adding my first Montblanc - Montblanc Villeret 1858 Vintage Pulsographe

Rewind to one year ago at an amazing GTG when I first saw a beautiful pulsometer chronograph which belongs to fellow Purist Beerstyle. It was love at first sight when I held the watch in my hands, 39mm WG case, Grand Feu enamel pulsometer dial, blued hand

H edition - 25 pcs - steel case Monopusher

Conceptually, it's a bit bananas. Take one of the finest chronograph movements in the world and turn it into a knockabout watch. Throw it on an appropriate strap, get the seals checked every year and you can theoretically wear this watch while cannonballi

H edition - 25 pcs - steel case Monopusher

She is waiting for me...

A Midwestern Unboxing...

A Midwestern Unboxing...

This is a re-print/summary of some technical information I contributed at that time - after the Gnutti take-over and might be biased by my relationship with JJ Frey. (I am do not believe that has been shared at this forum, if I am wrong, bear with and old

Grossmann v Grossmann

This year I have been impressed with two watches launched by the under rated Glashutte brand, Moritz Grossmann. Both are 41mm in diameter and share a similar case but that is as far as the similarities go. The Hamatic launched a couple of months ago in Mo
