Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon Astronomical

Photo Cred: Graham Baselworld is coming up quickly, so I thought I’d give you guys a sneak peak at what we can expect. From one of the lesser known manufacturers comes a complete masterpiece that’s riveting, exciting and completely captivating. Here is the Graham Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon Astronomical, a watch that defies what we associate with typical watchmaking. It’s an amalgamation of ingenuity, splendore and wonder, and it works so damn well. Occasionally a manufacture will try and overdo it by combining complication on complication with different finishing techniques and the like, but rarely do they pull it off....

Bell & Ross BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon Sapphire

Photo Credit: Bell & Ross Bell & Ross BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon Sapphire   As a brand, Bell & Ross isn’t one you would necessarily relate to anything haute horlogerie. Typically producing solid, daily beaters, Bell & Ross have released their first timepiece encased in a solid Sapphire block. And damn does it look good. There are a fair few brands now experimenting with Sapphire as a viable casing material. Some manufacturers can pull it off, while other trials have been a bit of a hit-and-miss situation. And while I’m not the biggest advocate of square-shaped watches, the BR-X1 is...

Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 370

Photo Credit: 1 of 1 World Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Type 370 As a brand, Parmigiani Fleurier aren’t the most well known or popular amongst the tight-knit circles that make up our small collective watch community.

I enjoy brands who don’t shed too much light on what they do, instead relying upon their craftsmanship and finished products to do the talking....

De Bethune Dream Watch Meteorite

Photo credit: De Bethune  De Bethune Dream Watch Meteorite De Bethune’s latest masterpiece, the Dream Watch Meteorite (DWM) is just that, a dream watch made from a meteorite. A piece unique utilising the rarest of materials: that of an extraterrestrial meteorite. A true enigma, and one that is as polarising to the masses as it is impressive, the DWM is the kind of timepiece the world never expected. Its an amalgamation of a daring passion coupled with extraordinary watchmaking that really defines not just the DWM, but also De Bethune as an identified high horology atelier. Beginning with the...

Parmigiani Fleurier Pershing Tourbillon

Photo credit: Parmigiani Fleurier. Parmigiani Fleurier’s Pershing Tourbillon From a brand whose name is synonymous with refined haute horlogerie, Parmigiani Fleurier’s Pershing Tourbillon is an embodiment of everything a true house of high watchmaking should reflect. Its not the kind of watch you’ll likely see any time soon, and it certainly isn’t going to be something you’d be able to purchase on a whim. It is, however, the kind of timepiece you’d expect from such an illustrious and exclusive watchmaking company. Starting with the oddly designed case which screams uniqueness and personality and manufactured in Palladium, it reflects the...
