First show discussing the lengthy experiences I had at SIHH and GTE. This will be continued in future shows as there were just too many watches to discuss at once. Having a hands-on look at the watches in addition to personal communication with the brands opens up a whole new world of information.
Dueling reviews: We talk about the Praesto Aviator Watch – Ariel’s review can be found here, and John’s review can be found here. On to Panerai, Ariel reviews the complex Panerai Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica 48mm Lo Scientziato Watch he met at SIHH 2010, so we talk about that and Panerai‘s shy tourbillon.
Yvan Arpa is a topic for 10 minutes; his very unique, crazy approach to design and watch making, his departure from MB&F and his new brand Artya. Ariel loves it and we decide John just hates art. We get into JLC – Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Automatic Navy SEALs Watch. Lastly, we learn about the handmade Cabestan Nostromo Watch.
