10-DAYS: Glashütte Original "Sixties PanoDate"

KronosBlog | 1. Feb 2012 10:03 |

INTRODUCTIONMany already are familiar with Glashütte Original and possibly the "Sixties" models. I have always wanted to have something that my grandfather could/would have worn, yet the standard sizes in the 60's ranged from 32mm to 36mm for gentlemen's watches make them …

Patek Philippe: Regulator "5235G"

KronosBlog | 1. Feb 2012 10:03 |

It has been a while since I posted something from Patek. The reason being that there is a lot of rumors regarding the dismisal of hand finishes in all movements except for the very BIG pieces, the blatant manipulation of auctions and an alleged overlooked poor/irregular …

F.P. Journe "Centigraphe Souverain"

KronosBlog | 1. Feb 2012 10:03 |

INTRODUCTIONWhat can I say? To be honest I feel that I should spare you my blabber and jump straight to the video. However, a proper introduction is in order. The "Centigraphe" has been open debate and discussion on many forums regarding its ability to indeed measure or not …

RESSENCE "Zero Series"

KronosBlog | 1. Feb 2012 10:03 |

INTRODUCTIONThese days there are very few times where you can really say that there is something "new" in horology. Whenever there is a new complication or method to display time somebody somewhere has done it before. Either directly mimicking an old invention or simply …

All good things...

KronosBlog | 1. Feb 2012 10:03 |

... come to an end, yet not today! What I will be doing is moving to a bigger place. Over time blogger has given a great service in sharing my rantings regarding horology on the net. As with real life itself there is a time when one outgrows his/her car, his/her home an …

Porsche Design "P'6920"

KronosBlog | 15. Feb 2009 13:02 |

I wonder... there is nothing really extraordinary about this Valjoux rattrapante, apart from sharing the only good looking "Porsche Design" design by Eterna. At what price will the P'6920 be presented at? Similar products range at around 5,000 € with the IWCs going close to …

MB & F "HM2 Ceramic"

KronosBlog | 11. Feb 2009 12:46 |

Almost forgot! I was finally face -to-face with the new HM2 in its ceramic variant. As expected, it's a great piece!I must admit that I am a bit disconcerted. I am not really a big fan of "horizontal" watches yet the HM2 has me sold. Maybe because it is actually thin and …

RM004v2: What legends are made of...

KronosBlog | 10. Feb 2009 15:56 |

Regardless of what I think of the RM025 "hockey-puck" (sorry, couldn't help it...) there is one aspect here that I find particularly interesting. The removal of the "rattrapante" function from this variant of the RM008 calibre. Oddly, few have commented about that calibre …

Jaeger leCoultre "Grande Reverso"

KronosBlog | 10. Feb 2009 05:51 |

The other pleasant novelty of this years SIHH is the oversize and ultra-slim Reverso. I can't begin to tell you how happy I was when these where first rumored to be in the pipeline. At last I had the chance to see them in the flesh. Finally a Reverso that would fit a large …

Linde Werdelin "SpidoLite"

KronosBlog | 9. Feb 2009 12:31 |

There sure is a lot of stuff going on at Linde Werdelin lately. Considered the ultimate gadget watch by many, Linde Werdelin is moving into a hole new league with their latest introductions. To be honest, it is hard to look away. The "Sea Instrument" is a great piece of kit …

URWERK "Cobra"

KronosBlog | 9. Feb 2009 07:51 |

Going to visit URWERK has become one of the highlights of every SIHH. I am still amazed that such a small watchmaker is capable of developing and presenting new things every year. While giants like Jaeger or AP have a wast amount of resources and brainpower, small …

URWERK "Tarantula"

KronosBlog | 4. Feb 2009 13:01 |

Apart from the Cobra, the star at URWERK this year was the very anticipated "Tarantula". It was worth the wait. I don't cease to be amazed at the versatility of the 103. The options seem to be endless. The 103 is an incombustible machine. The Tarantula is stainless steel …

Panerai

KronosBlog | 4. Feb 2009 11:21 |

Some so much and others so little... Panerai, unlike Lange, have got their press kit completely wrong. Two discs, one USB key and a whatever gift (that I gladly passed on to my neighbor). No pictures of their two new calibers and many pictures of stuff that looks all the …

Enamel...

KronosBlog | 31. Jan 2009 11:35 |

For those with special requests Jaeger is pushing its "Enamel Special Request" division more than ever. The pieces are simply breathtaking, even under a 10x loupe. Having people with these skills it would be a shame not to. Reversos with only one side have been personalized …

Jaeger leCoultre "Navy Seal Diving Alarm"

KronosBlog | 30. Jan 2009 18:20 |

There is no sense hiding that Jaeger leCoultre are amongst my favorites. This year instead of presenting a battery of ultra complicated and expensive pieces Jaeger have decided to go with the lover range and p 58a roduce an offer that will work quite well in these times.The …

A. Lange & Soehne

KronosBlog | 30. Jan 2009 00:46 |

I must say that Lange made first place in the best/smartest/useful/intelligent press gift/kit this year. Unlike the useless garbage and tons of paper that you are given at the end of the product presentations (really convenient if you still have miles to walk and seven …

FERRARI by Panerai

KronosBlog | 30. Jan 2009 00:15 |

Now, this could be just another chapter of the X-Files. Taneenoneenoneee... After THREE, yes THREE previous and unsuccessful attempts (Longines, Cartier, Girard-Perregaux)... somebody decided that they HAD to give it another try. What in the name of good would lead one to …

SIHH 2009

KronosBlog | 28. Jan 2009 05:20 |

I was going to wait until the end but it makes sense after a request to have a short summary of the general feel of the situation of this years SIHH.Here is the final Press Release by the SIHH:Summed up it says that they went in fearing the worst yet things not being as bad …

Ralph Lauren

KronosBlog | 27. Jan 2009 20:15 |

It becomes very apparent to me that some people in the business think that we as consumers are just a bunch of brain dead morons. Now, that is understandable since there are things out there that get sold no mater what. This year, Ralph Lauren has raised the bar to a whole …

Limited OVERKILL II

KronosBlog | 27. Jan 2009 19:05 |

I can't shake the feeling that the OffShore is going where I don't want it to go. Limited Editions have been going insane and the way the OffShore is marketed simply does not relate to me. Every year I hear the same ol' story that the indiscriminate LEs will be stopped and …

OffShore

KronosBlog | 26. Jan 2009 21:42 |

Like last year's RoyalOak Chrono facelift, the Offshore has just been granted two new faces. Love them, both. Surprising is the black Luminova used. A first at AP. Black luminova is not the greatest performance-vise but it is so beautiful when you drive into the darkens of …
