[SIHH 2012] Officine Panerai, after the bomb.

World Poker Tour. Last year, I had announced flat out (no bluff at PifPaf’s) that it would be the Officine’s best year.
Incidentally, the title of the article was « the apogee ». Unless there‘s a miracle (but it is just a business), one would inevitably be disappointed.
This year’s disappointment is relative, because we are far from the perigee, and it is even the most interesting SIHH of Panerai since 2006 (except for 2011, of course).

Panerai PAM127 1950 "Fiddy", rewiew & analyse.

The PAM127 is the most mythical PAM of the Richemont years, cheaper than the PAM203, more typified than the PAM232, more bestial than the PAM249, it imposed itself, not without difficulties, as the sexiest PAM in the heart of the «Usual Paneristi».

[BaselWorld 2010] Corum for wait the report on 2011.

I'am currently writing the article about the Corum BaselWorld 2011, to wait, remember 2010:  

You can comment this article on the WForum:



I was welcomed by Corum at Basel.

The major novelty (by any means) is the “Diver”, 1000m, titanium, I find it is a very fine piece, and even the overly wide inter-lug of 24mm is compensated by the great design of the case.

100% People, Christie's Auction 15/05/11.

After the post on the best watches in the Geneva Auction of 15/05/11:
Alex realized for use a live report directly from the auction.

The purpose of today's post is to share with all of you a bit of ambiance of the afternoon session of last Christie's auction! Enjoy!

Christie's auction of may 16. Sci-fi watches and bids.

This report was realized on May Friday 13, 3 days before the auction, in Geneva.
We had chosen the watches by interest, and were trying to keep variety, between the brands, the modern and the vintage, the sport and the dressed, of this selection:

LOT 19, a crazy Rolex 6542 GMT, 38mm, SS case, Used Bakelit bezel, tropical burned dial by the radium and the sun... The dial is amazing, the GMT hand is weird...
And we are in the absolute myth of the Rolex GMT. The watch has been retired before the sale...

The following pieces will be sold in Geneva on the May 15:

A Rolex Submariner 6538 full Guilt, Aka "James Bond" (Sean Connery period), the most famous Rolex, in the flesh, very rare:

[BaselWorld] Ulysse Nardin, entrée dans la légende.

C'est délicat d'écrire un article d'actualité horlogère, alors que patron-gourou de la marque concerné vient de décéder.
Rolf Schnyder, visionnaire, qui avait su insuffler un renouveau technologique dans Ulysse Nardin, qui inspirera sans doute, la nouvelle vague indépendante, du milieu des années 2000.

[BaselWorld] Linde Werdelin Toolwatches 2.0

We are welcome by Sky at BaselWorld to check out the products of Linde Werdelin:

[BaselWorld] De Monaco: The Princely Surprise.

Recently, I spoke to Patrizia Ameli who works for Ateliers De Monaco and who made me come back to this watch brand, which I observed from the distance, dissuaded by a non-Swiss name, I frankly had not paid attention enough to it.

Having crossed Patrizia at BaselWorld made me visit the booth of De Monaco, with blow of “Mawashi-Geri”, 8 teeth spit; I had one of the biggest surprises of the entire exhibition.

Nous sommes reçus sur le stand à BaselWorld par Sky pour nous y faire présenter les modèles de Linde Werdelin:

[BaselWorld-GTE] Heritage watch manufacture.

An improbable encounter.

Some duets can be so full of creativity and bright ideas that one would believe that the duettists met each other at the childbearing center. I think of Renaud& Papi, Greubel& Forsey, Chip&Dale or Nicolas Sarkozy and his discrete shoe-heels.

[BaselWorld] Patek 2011 novelties, live pics.

There are the big movie festivals like Césars, Cannes or the very small ones i.e.Cognac or Sundance.
Here I come to attend the Oscars. Quite simply. The stars, spangles, flashes awaking epilepsy, and luxury before all.
Patek Philippe. I walk out with my traditional Zegna tie, but especially with plenty of photographs of so much awaited Patek Philippe hot watch news.
