Jaeger-LeCoultre «Grand Sport»

Here is a brief photo essay of what is my absolutely favorite Reverso ever made, the Grand Sport. After so many years it still baffles me that so much can be placed inside such a small case. A true testament to what «Haute Horlogerie» is all about. There is no doubt, when I look at the Jaeger-LeCoultre...

Sea-Dweller​ «FRIENDS ONLY»

This is quite a unique edition, to say the least.  The «FRIENDS ONLY» takes the whole «tunning» concept a step further than Bamford or Pro Hunter.

tactico TC2 vs. TC2 Expedition

My favourite tactico is hands down the TC2 series. Few watches give you the vintage look with a modern manufacturing feel. The TC2 was the first of the line and early this year the TC2-Expedition came along. Both based on the same case and bezel yet both very different look. As always with t·a·c·t·i·c·o/CREPAS the finishings, both...

Ximenez-Spinola vs. Montecristo 1935

Hace poco se presento en sociedad la linea “1935” de la casa Montecristo y gracias a la generosa donación de un amigo presente (por falta de asistir a tan magno evento) he podido hacerme con la vitola más voluminosa de los tres. Por cierto, todavía me tiene que explicar para que se presenta un puro que no estará...

Lang & Heyne «Heinrich»

Aquí­, una de las piezas más memorables del casa el Lang & Heyne «Heinrich». Aparte de su belleza evidente lo realmente memorable es lo que es menos evidente. Después de disfrutar con la extraordinaria belleza de esfera y superlativos acabados, hay que detenerse a observar el segundero con más detenimiento.     Para el aficionado...

Czapek «Quai des Bergues – nº 23bis»

A photoessay of a one of a kind – bespoke piece, the Czapek «Quai des Bergues – nº 23bis». For many connoisseurs, Czapek has been making a very notable appearance in these last two years. Since its «unorthodox» resurgence to the presentation of their Tourbillon and winning the Public Prize at the «GRAND PRIX D’HORLOGERIE DE...

Lang & Heyne «Friederich II»

Simplicity has never been so attractive as with the Friederich II. Three hands, no complications, pure horological poetry. Something «aparently» so simple yet so special that it is only recognized and appreciated by those truly initiated. The Friederich II by Lang & Heyne is a watch for those that reached the end of a long journey and...

Davidoff «Escurio – Gran Toro»

Desde la desaparición llevo buscando sustitutivo a mi añorado Davidoff «Puro D’Oro». Todavía me cuesta entender su desaparición puesto que este era un puro realmente extraordinario. Desde entonces han aparecido varias y nuevas series como el «YAMASA” y el «ESCURIO». En teoría el Yamasa debería ser el elegido puesto que el Puro D’Oro llevaba esa...

Lang & Heyne «Georg»

If there is something that really is appreciated by a real watch connaisseur in a rectangular watch is a rectangular movement. This means that the movement was specifically made for this case. The more I look at this watch the more I think the hands should have been placed in the back so as to wear it...
