Patek Philippe: Kissing cousins...

considering that Patek's reference 124 in the 30's was supplied the 8-day movement from JLC, and PP's first world time watches had JLC movements. These days, they are 2 of the only companies making their movement, case and bracelet (both buy straps and glass), and both save tools. "You know, you nev

Horological Meandering: The LeLocle is a classic!

And Tissot is the best bang-for-the-buck in the business. If you like collecting a lot of styles, they even still make musical pocket watches! -Dean

Jaeger-LeCoultre: I have the Orient World Time...

With the reverse-panda layout. It has guilloche dial, power reserve, is 43mm with sapphire crystal and in-house (though completely NOT decorated) movement, and it is gorgeous!

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Thierry Stern talked about 7-year cycles....

But I think JLC's use of "ruthenium" dials for white gold (after the slightly darker than the steel model in 2000 flopped) was quite nice. And they were always "low production." The beauty of gray dials is that on rose gold cases with brown straps, they can look "chocolate," as they did with the fir

Jaeger-LeCoultre: I still remember Bill Clinton...

wearing it to the Democratic National Convention in 2012 when he gave his speech on national TV. All of the Navy Seal watches were great. I wish JLC would re-visit the aesthetics (when they re-launch the Compressor line). ;-) -Dean
