Chopard: A fantastic under-the-radar watch

I really like the applied numerals, which are curved on top, instead of flat. It gives a wonderful play of light and visual interest to the dial. Total class — understated, discrete and impeccable. And the blue cashmere strap gives a wonderful air of insouciance and casual elegance. This is my idea

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Love my Atmos, but you need to like tinkering to regulate it...

I made 4 regulations over a 4-month period to get my Atmos to its current accuracy of a 1-minute gain over 1 month. You make an adjustment and then wait 4 weeks before making any next adjustment. And then wait another 4 weeks, etc. It started nearly 20 minutes fast (over a 4-week period) fresh out o

Cartier: Ah, Tonneau not Tank Cintrée, of course! Silly me.

Thank you for the diplomatic correction. I’ve taken to typing without thinking. Some would say that’s been my usual practice for years. When I tried on the Tonneau, I was surprised by its effortless and comfortable fit, because watches with long lug-to-lug distance typically don’t work on my wrist.
