A. Lange & Söhne: The cleanest dial lay-out possibly..

The historic flagship model Lange1 had the cleanest dial. Add to this the calendar indicators without diluting the harmony of the timeless design; you have the Lange 1 Perpetual. The emphasis on the large date continues; the day indicator beautifully placed to balance the time indicator dial ; and t

A. Lange & Söhne: A pure classic

This first version of the Datograph Perpetual, with its roman numerals is a pure classic. A watch that deserves greater appreciation, but sadly still remains a hidden gem. The unique corrector at 10’0 clock is a robust mechanism that makes the adjustment of the date function easy and safe. Fabulousl

Horological Meandering: A collector is..

1. a person who does not buy a watch on the idea that the watch is an investment for profit 2. a person who buys a particular watch because of pure horological passion 3. a person that would never sell a watch unless it is for an upgrade to a grail piece or change of collection-theme 4. a person tha

Seiko: It is getting monotonous..

The releases are getting alarmingly monotonous, with a few dial tweaks and virtually the very same calibers . Hardly anything that stands out to distinguish one model from the other. Am wondering whether there is any need at all for such prolific model releases..

Montblanc: Still.. it would have helped if..

They had created the Minerva line as a distinct sub-brand for better identity and recognition of these fantastic calibers. Similar to the Toyota and the Lexus categories Grand Seiko also suffers from an identity crisis as it is not very differentiated from the mass produced Seikos ; and thus affecti

Horological Meandering: A seconds hand adds to setting accuracy

IMHO having a seconds hand makes it convenient to not only set the watch accurately, but also measure the accuracy on an on-going basis.
