Vacheron Constantin: One of these found me a few days ago.

It's even better in person, and I agree it wears larger than 37mm. Also, this might be ultimate Lemania 1872 execution. The things I encounter at work... Best, Tim

A. Lange & Söhne: I wouldn't go that far. The brand still is a reference point for quality

There have been reams of fun, desirable, and very on-brand watches from Lange in the nearly two decades since Blumlein died. Even in the last three years -- tough years for Lange as a brand -- there have been a number of glorious pieces that would be capstone/exit watches in many collections. Even t

A. Lange & Söhne: I have no problem with this.

Changes in auto style are driven by fashion and short attention spans. I have no problem with a solid product changing in ways that are practical, relevant to its use, and subtle in appearance. Last year's Zeitwerk Date was a huge change. So was the 2012 Datograph redesign -- which a ton of people h

Rolex: I love this one.

Most of the literature on these watches suggests this dial is blue MOP, but the examples I've seen are a far more intense lacquer-like surface. The yellow and pink MOP dials aren't as sharp and vivid as this one, and it might be my favorite of the four. Congratulations on a bold and awesome choice o

Horological Meandering: If you want a competent machine, Rolex and Omega are hard to beat.

If you want something tangibly made by a human being, you'll look elsewhere. If we elevate industrial production prowess and manufacturing consistency to higher esteem than imperfect but clearly handcrafted results, then we reopen the fundamental question about why anyone needs a mechanical watch ra

Automotive: This isn't a huge problem

Germany went from local rutted rural roads and few paved road networks to a nation-spanning and highly organized autobahn in a few years. Now they need to a few parking spots to install high-voltage chargers? I think they'll survive. The charging technology on the infrastructure side uses hardware t

TimeOut: Question your sources

First off, this was in the New York Post, which is known in its local market as little more than a political tabloid. Second, most of the people who forwarded this to me seemed to have encountered it on Facebook or comparable social media; politically tinged stories -- especially sensational and inf

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Thanks for sharing

I like the timer. The standard Memovox doesn't feel different enough from the 2010 revision to feel new or warrant a replacement. As for the date, I have no objections other than the use of a contrasting date disc. A blue metallic disc would have been more attractive and more coherent. AP realized t
