Re: Pics from the walkers

A local walk yesterday, and some ‘mood’ pictures.

Three articles showcasing JLC

Jaeger-LeCoultre is of course known to most watch nerds, but not everyone knows what JLC is capable of. Hodinkee’s Jack Forster (now departed to Watchbox) wrote three articles back in 2016 about different aspects of JLCs capabilities. They might be of interest to some of you. Enjoy! Part 1 The tourb...

Re: Long Term Test

Missed the story first time around. Thanks for the update. Wonderful! Long time review indeed. A bit sad you sold it, but happy you got a great result.

An honest watch

That depends what you compare it to. Here you get a watch with a (small) degree of handcraft from a top independent watchmaker. But it’s a subtle watch, I grant you.

Thanks Lindsey. His main line is something else indeed. I’ve handled one, and it was stunning. And that was without the moonphase.

Re: An honest watch

Sorry about the orientation of the pictures. They turn 90 or 180 degrees by the forum editor software.Edit: now fixed. Thanks Steve (@AVO).

An honest watch

The new year was only seconds old when I bought the S.U.F 180N. The limited run of 25 watches (and 25 with black DLC case) went up for sale just seconds prior to my purchase. I had been waiting. S.U.F is Sarpaneva Uhren Fabrik, Stepan Sarpaneva’s more accesible range. The 180 is Sarpaneva’s field wa...

Re: 20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90

I turned 60 in 2021, the same year my favourite watch, the Reverso, turned 90. So I planned to get the jubilee model, if it was a model meant for non-billionaires.

Re: Number of Watches in Collection Question

1. How many watches are in your collection: More than I would ideally prefer.
2. Do you have a strategy or just buy what you like? My strategy is to buy what I like.
3. What is the best number to have in your collection? n+1
4. How do you manage your yearly purchases? By stealth.
