East West® by Tiffany & Co

Reading Time: 3 minutes A Tiffany travel clock from the 1940s serves as an inspiration for this interesting wristwatch. A classic design, but with a touch of difference. It’s a watch that always catches our attention when we (Mrs. and me) visit the Tiffany’s boutique. It’s simple, lovely and has that “je ne sais […]

Sevenfriday V Series

Reading Time: 3 minutes An industry revolution? You can say that… Sevenfriday, when launched in 2012, started something, maybe not a revolution, but a big wave for sure. I’ve met Sevenfriday watches between non-collectors, low budget collectors and haute horlogerie collectors. It’s a watch you just love, it doesn’t matter if it’s your only […]

Perrelet as a collecting item

Chaumet HORTENSIA “AUBE ROSÉE”

Reading Time: 3 minutes When it comes to ladies watches, the market is not so full of choices. But the main issue is that a lot of the ladies models are just quartz. My wife told me she is always frustrated that for her, the usual (to read the only) choice must be, in […]
