Some of the best brands that make watches today were around back then…
If you look at many of the most popular watch brands, you’ll notice that their collections usually contain a few (or many) classics whose names have been around for years. Brands like Rolex don’t really release new models, but rather continue to improve on their core collection over time.
Tourbillons have come a long way during the past 200+ years of their existence. That time has proven sufficient to provide major ups and downs – and more than one full life cycle for this fairy invention.

We battle it out over the coolness or lameness of the Morgenwerk Satellite Precision watches. We then talk about the final versions of the HYT H1 hydromechanical watch, as well as the awesome new Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX 7 Chronograph. Then we try to understand and sum up the new watch brand by, and featuring his royal undeadness, Karl Lagerfeld.
Jaeger-LeCoultre announces the seventh version of their Aston Martin automobile collaboration watches with the AMVOX 7 Chronograph.
