Montblanc: Unusual watch

Great release this year, it's a reedition of chronograph that is very charming. One thing I noticed when looking at the scales on the new version's dial is that the subdials are positioned more towards the centre with the re-edition, compared to the original. I recall seeing with the Vacheron Cornes

Independents: Great pickup!

Silberstein and Ressence were made for one another. It's great to see that Ressence's dial layout looks quite fresh with different designers contributing, as even a brilliantly innovative company can't afford to rest on its laurels. The new dive watch looks great too.

A. Lange & Söhne: How many of us imagine ourselves with the same watch collection in five years? Or a downsized collection with no upgrades or changes beyond selling?

The quote is not scandalous, just a bit honest. We can assume Mr. Schmid is interpreting the data available to him and drawing from his own perspective in arriving at his view on collectors. Insatiability and a lack of contentment are characteristic of a driven person. Application pieces, forging bo

Independents: Lovely version

I'm not much of a golfer, but appreciate your analogy. It's strangely pleasant that blogs have answered the call in terms of offering the most appealing versions of great watches. The Monochrome post shows a red-tipped hand, was it customizable?

Glashütte Original: This is a cool release

Interesting execution of a useful mechanical complication. To me that is definitely part of Glashutte Original's DNA and what separates their best watches from crowd. Due to the nature of this complication, I don't mind the gold and platinum choices for this release. The increase in power reserve is

Girard Perregaux: Reminds me very much of the forged carbon APs

The dial is certainly its own thing though and quite cheerful. It's not my cup of tea, but I don't dislike anything about it beyond the high price. To nitpick...why is the subdial hand at 6 o'clock white, while the other chronograph hands are yellow?

Horological Meandering: Ulysse Nardin is my choice

Very subjective if you are aiming for the most natural display or the most historical provenance or the best functioning. The Ulysse Nardin does not have the best dial layout amongst all of these and the date changes are gradual, but you can set it forwards and backwards via the crown and it's reada

Omega: Love it!

The museum collection kind of exists in its own world. This one happens to be my favourite, I love the dial, hinged lugs and olive pushers. Size is good too for a watch (modern or otherwise).

Horological Meandering: Great looking piece!

Dial has everything I'd need from a time only watch and I'm a sucker for texture.
