If there was such a thing as a ‘pedestrian watch’ at A. Lange & Sohne then it would surely be one of their “more basic” watches priced under $50,000 like this 1815 Up/Down. Anything over that simply could not be considered “ordinary.” There of course is jest in my words as A. Lange & Sonhe is among the most exclusive high-end brands in the world that given their volume…

This cute ladies watch from Cartier is called the Secret Panda. I don’t use the term “cute” all that often to describe timepieces, but this one certainly is. In all 18k white gold clad in diamonds, black sapphires, and two emeralds for the eyes, this little panda is literally humping the watch…
Panerai is an often polarizing brand that has, in recent years, has seen a massive spike in popularity and has become a somewhat household name in men’s luxury wrist watches. Now often included in the brands that your non-watchnerd friends are aware of, they hold rank in upscale jewellery boutiques alongside Breitling and Rolex. Personally, I have loved the Panerai Radiomir as long as I have loved watches but both the price and the case size has often been too much for my reality. While SIHH saw quite a few new models from Panerai, none were as intriguing to me as the Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio (PAM00526).
Pretty much any timepiece from Parmigiani Fleurier that has the term “Toric” in the title is going to be spectacular. This watch is the Toric Quaestor Labyrinthe (that I will refer to as merely “Labyrinthe”), a limited edition of five piece set for 2013. These pieces rank toward the top of the Parmigiani wrist watch ladder.
Perhaps IWC’s new 40mm wide Ingenieur dress watch was the most talked about new Ingenieur piece for 2013, but for those who like larger sport watches these more simple-dialed Ingenieur pieces will fit the bill. Whether it is a phase or just because I like loud watches, I fully appreciate smaller dress watches, but simply have so little time in my life to wear them.
Looking for a new dress watch? Be sure to check out the range of options presented by the new Baume & Mercier Clifton line. Encompassing both three-handers and two stunning Complete Calendar models, the Clifton was inspired by past B&M models from the 1950s and is a continuation of the Baume & Mercier Classima line. With the Clifton, B&M have created what looks to be a very versatile and understated line of everyday dress watches that offer a range of sizes, case metals, and dial designs.
Not one to let SIHH’s spotlight simply pass them by, Richard Mille announced a limited edition model called the RM 58-01 Tourbillon World Timer Jean Todt Limited Edition. That rather long name suggests a lot about the watch but may leave some people questioning – who is Jean Todt? Jean Todt is the current President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and has been a notable figure in international professional racing for many years.
The term “mystery” (whether in English or French) as applied to a clock or watch means that some part of its mechanism or operation is hidden from the user. In this case it means that you can’t immediately see how the hands are attached.
John is under the mistaken belief that I have a groupie when what I really have is loyal contributors. The line can blur of course. Inasmuch we talk about what it is like to cover SIHH as a blogger…
A few years ago when I first had an opportunity to lay my hands on De Bethune watches I quickly realized that this was one of the few brands destined to earn my money when and if the time came when it their products were within my financial means.
We wore a new Montblanc Timewalker model for a little while during SIHH, so we thought you should know a little bit about it. There seems to have been a resurgence in world-timer watches these days among many brands.
We talk turkey about SIHH 2013, some of the watches, a lot of the people. And what it is like as a watch blogger to be there. Oh, and more…
Cartier, an essential name in the luxury sport watch world, announced a series of 2013 novelties at SIHH this year. Among the fray is the interesting and notable Tortue XXL… offers what at first may seem like a fairly conventional GMT complication until you view the watch from its side…
Ever wondered what it is like to work with Ariel Adams? I certainly did, and in the last four months, I have been treated to a spectacle beyond my comprehension, leading to a vague understanding that perhaps I have stumbled into a place that I was meant to be.
SIHH watch week in Geneva, the third week in January, has become an exhilarating, exhausting onslaught of watch love, filled with astounding, jaw-dropping displays of design, engineering and skill found at SIHH, the Geneva Time Exhibition (GTE) and in hotels along the Quai des Bergues where independents display their wares.
Today I received an interesting press release from the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) regarding the end of the 2013. Interestingly enough the title of the release very much mimicked the most positive way I could interpret my feelings about the show. But more on that in a moment.
