Fratello Friday: Reviewing the Gold Patek Philippe Nautilus

Some of you may know that I have a weak spot for watches designed by Gérald Genta in the 1970s, a list that includes the Royal Oak by Audemars Piguet and the Ingenieur by IWC (it is a common misconception by many that the ‘222’ and the Overseas by Vacheron Constantin were also designed by...

Panerai’s latest version of its Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica, this week’s Watch to Watch, blends history and modernity — with a contemporary, matte-black ceramic case and a minimalist dial inspired by the brand’s history as a supplier of timepieces to the Royal Italian Navy. The material used in the case of the Panerai Radiomir...

Who Needs Constant Force? An Insider’s Look at F.P. Journe (Part 2)

1977. Paris. A young watchmaker of 20 embarks on an odd quest – to make his own tourbillon. Not to sell, not to show, but simply to prove that he can do it. Passionate and determined, equipped only with George Daniels’ book, “the Art of Breguet,” Francois-Paul Journe sets to work. 1983. Paris. Francois-Paul Journe...

Temptation Thursday by Escapement: Nomos Glashütte Lambda Roségold

Recently, I flew to Berlin and traveled onwards by car to the German home of watchmaking, Glashütte. The German town is located in Saxony and isn’t the easiest place to get to. However, within moments of arriving at the small atelier, positioned adjacent a railway platform, I knew my rationale for making the journey was...

Longines Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros Celebrates the French Open

If you follow lots of sports, you’ve probably seen the Longines winged-hourglass logo on TV quite a lot recently. Not only is the Swiss watch company the official timekeeping partner of horse racing’s triple crown races, culminating with this weekend’s Belmont Stakes; it is also the official timer of the French Open, the second tournament...

Bovet Fleurier introduced the first two pieces in its Complications collection in 2014. The third makes its debut at this week’s JCK Watch and Jewelry show at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Sponsored: Power or Precision? An Insider’s Look at F.P. Journe (Part 1)

Ten years ago, when F.P. Journe introduced his Chronomètre Souverain, his goal was to achieve a true Chronometer status. Precision has always been the essence of Mr. Journe’s quest. His two first attempts were the Remontoir d’Egalité that regulates the flow of energy in his Tourbillon, and the Resonance movement that compensates for the movement...

Monochrome Monday: Reviewing the Parmigiani Tonda Metrographe

Parmigiani is a relatively new name in the world of high-end timepieces. The brand has remained a niche player for its first 18 years, and has focused exclusively on the absolute top end of haute horlogerie. Just think of Parmigiani’s Bugatti watches, its minute repeaters (see here and here) and the recently introduced skeleton version...

Fratello Friday: Reviewing the A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater

In my book, a minute repeater is the ultimate complication. Of course, a tourbillon is a feast for the eyes, and a perpetual calendar dial filled with apertures for day, date, month, year and moon phases is brilliant, but a minute repeater, to me, offers the most sensational experience. Most minute repeater movements have hammers...

The Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Manufacture Gets 2 New Looks

For years, one of the signatures of Ulysse Nardin has been its fine GMT watch. The Dual Time models have a legible dial with just two center-mounted hands, making for a simple, intuitive reading of the time in multiple locations.
