The men that made HM1 possible

One of the things that struck me as unique was the set of people or shall I say, a set of brilliant watchmakers and wonderful human beings that collaborated and worked together to make the HM1 a reality. Rarely have I seen or read about maestros coming to

Christophe Claret

I was recently looking at some Christophe Claret watches, and I'm surprised we don't see more of this brand on the forum. Any thoughts as to why? The X-Trem 1 is probably my favorite, I think it's easily one of the most creative and unique watches out the

"Steampunk" / technical watch: MB&F vs. Urwerk vs. ?

The MB&F movements are well finished with black polish and anglage, where Urwerks look more machine finished. MB&F even gives you a custom box that's specific to the model, there was a post on this a while ago if you want to search for it. But for

Need some help identifying a common base movement!

Hi All, I wonder if any our experts can help me identify the base caliber used in these two watches? Up first is the beautiful manual-wind Bulgari L'Ammiraglio del Tempo with a 4-gong Westminster Chime Minute Repeater and Detent Escapement. Here's a pictu

Hands on review of the Genus GNS 1

so with that said, this watch (to my eyes) can be summed up in a single word… junk! Why do I say that, and without any reservation whatsoever? The price is an utter joke. The movement used and finishing is so far removed from the price being demanded that

Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon. Another dream piece.

41 mm platinum case. Christophe Claret was involved in the creation of the movement. And a superb creation playing with transparency, light, colors. Not a fan of Tourbillons, but here, this is a very notable exception. A dream watch, for me. Best, Nicolas

Is anyone planning on going to the Watchtime Los Angeles show? KV, FPJ, ALS, Romain Gauthier, and others will be there.

Just found out about this show from ABTW... Has anyone gone to the New York one? I really want to see KV 28ti and the new De Bethune diver... It's on May 3-4. Also it looks like Saturday tickets are only $10 with the code ABTW... () Full brand list pulled

**LONDON** final stop for the Watchmakers "The Masters of Art Horology" Exhibition - June 18-26, 2018

Waste of time? Hmm, that was pretty much the opposite of my take. It was fantastic! For one, the fact that it is not crowded is a plus. Each watch/grouping of watch is in a case and the cases are arranged in such a way that you can see both all the angles
