Watch Spotting – London

So while we were waiting for a meeting with a watch brand in London (it’s not often we are early!) we decided to partake in a touch of acceptable voyeurism on London’s New Bond Street…here’s what we saw.                         Anish Wears: Watch – Panerai 359 […]

Live – Rare calendar Audemars Piguet

Wow! What a watch!     Audemars Piguet started to manufacture full calendar timepieces in the early 1920’s. This particular example was made in early 1943 and given as a gift, going by the inscription on the back reading, ‘Ted Atkinson for unselfish service Jockeys’ Guild Sept 26th 1959’.       The dial is […]

An afternoon with Jorn

The good thing about London (well there has to be something to make up for rain in the summer and 20% VAT) is that it’s a buzzing city and quite often when you ask someone to visit they more than likely say yes. We didn’t actually invite Jorn, he just showed up. But then I […]

Uncovered – The most Important timepiece ever made by Audemars Piguet

There are a whole list of superlatives I was going to type out to start this article, but to save you having to read through them all (and the obvious clichés) I’ve deleted them and will instead illustrate my thoughts initially through the use of a picture or two…       What you see above […]

Most of them are from different banks, law firms, […]

Some leather from Rolex

For part two of the watch accessories series, I have chosen to write a few words on a Rolex notebook I recieved quite some time ago. I have come across a few of those over the years, but I still believe it to be quite rare. The light mint greenish box (not pictured) tells you […]

Rolex – Bags of time

As this is my first article here, I will begin with a short introduction to myself… My name is Carl, and I’m a watch-oholic. Well, to make things even worse, I love most luxurious things, be it watches, cars, pens or menswear. I’m also (I think) the only non-native English speaking contributor to the site, […]
