Today I have the pleasure of reviewing an amazing watch, the Carl F. Bucherer (hereby CFB) Patravi. This watch is as beautiful as it is fascinating. Not only does it have an in house movement, it’s a fascinating movement that lacks a conventional rotor.
Today we get to look at a striking example of Ball’s collection, the aptly named Ball Red Label Chronometer.
Today I have the pleasure of reviewing a watch inspired by the race cars of the 1950s and 1960s. When I look at that powder blue dial, it reminds me of my father’s old Corvette, which to my mind’s eye, was exactly this color.
Today I review two Nomos watches, the Club Automat and Tangente Gangreserve.
Today we have the pleasure of looking at two models from Jean Richard, the aggressive, yet refined, Terrascope and the 1681, one of JR’s dressiest models.
The Astron is something of a legend in watch history. It is easily one of the most influential watches of the 20th century, the one that ushered in quartz wristwatches. It changed everything.
Carl F. Bucherer, or CFB, is a great watch maker that has flown under the radar of North American collectors for too long. This company has long established itself as a major contender in the luxury watch market, bringing with it a 125 year heritage and true manufacture movements.
The market for diving watches is extremely crowded. Many companies make their bread and butter on dive watches. Some of those companies even make more than one. So how does a watch manufacturer differentiate itself from the sea of sameness? Oris does it with the new Oris Aquis Depth Gauge.
Today we have a very special comparison—one that puts two leading Grand Seikos against each other. It’s amazing how these two watches can be so similar and yet so different—the same ultra-high quality hand finishing, the same company, even the same price.
Today I have the pleasure of introducing the Maurice Lacroix Skeleton, or technically, the Masterpiece Squelette New Design. This beautiful watch features a skeletonized, in house ML134 movement with very fine finishing.
