    All Books Great and Small

    When it comes to watches, they come in all sizes. Bigger is not necessarily better. There are dainty dials, shining with miniature detail above equally minute movements, marvels of micromechanics. There are huge slabs that look like they need their own checked luggage tags. And there are medium-sized watches that try to be all things to all people–as ubiquitous as a Toyota Camry. high quality replica watches The same goes for books. Today I’ll share with you some of the biggest and smallest specimens in the HSNY library.

    Formula 1 Legend Michael Schumacher’s Watches

    Sometimes, it’s not really about the watch; it’s about the story. Paul Newman’s “Paul Newman” Daytona wasn’t the best example of the model, but it was his “Paul Newman.” And then there are times – like this week at Christie’s Geneva sale – when you have watches that are a little bit of both. That’s because Christie’s isn’t just selling watches that belonged to a legend; they’re selling watches made by legends, and ordered by another legend, as a gift to celebrate one of the greatest of all time in their sport: Michael Schumacher. high quality replica watches Christie’s auction this weekend is actually titled “Rare Watches Including the Property…

Hosted in a lovely space deep within Cartier’s palatial booth at the fair in Geneva, I and some 13 Cartier-obsessed guests were given the chance to sit down with Pierre Rainero and other leaders from Cartier to talk about the brand’s direction, the latest novelties, and the classics that make the brand so appealing.

    Christopher Ward The Twelve Titanium Nebula Purple watch

    Priced at under high quality replica watches but also boasting a wealth of features, expectations around the 2023-released Christopher Ward The Twelve watches were very high in the timepiece enthusiast community. When the English brand’s integrated bracelet watch came on the market, brand devotees were keen to see how well the spirited Christopher Ward company would approach its answer to a popular wristwatch style archetype. Most hailed it as a success. The Twelve was released in steel and titanium forms (they are actually distinct watches rather than being the same case in two different metal choices), and later as a smaller 36mm wide model. In 2023, when Christopher Ward originally…

    Chanel J12 X-Ray In Pink Sapphire

    Chanel is in a league of its own when it comes to brand recognition across Ready-To-Wear, beauty, watches, and jewelry. The design language and incorporation of Gabrielle “Coco’s” codes stand strong across all of the aforementioned categories. These key visual pillars that “Coco” created for the brand: the little black dress, the quilted bag, the tweed suit, two-tone shoes, camellias, pearls, and Chanel No. 5 perfume, have been repackaged, repurposed, and reframed into a modern context by each individual creative director appointed at the helm of a category. Watches at Chanel began with Jacques Hélleu (and the launch of the Première) in 1987. It has since morphed into a vast…

    Cartier Tank Mini Keeps Small Watch

    Tiny watches have become ubiquitous within the collector community over the past couple of years. A wide breadth of social media content has led to a voracious appetite amongst collectors (old and new) for smaller, design-led watches. Celebrities have embraced the trend (see Timothée Chalamet wearing a ladies’ Crash), and in turn have caused the wider world to pay attention to “men in small watches.” Furthermore, the notion of gender at brands like Cartier and Audemars Piguet is no longer presented as a strict binary when it comes to new product releases. You could say that the watch world is loosening up a little. high quality replica watches The new…

    Rolex Perpetual 1908 Platinum

    Last year, Rolex introduced the Perpetual 1908, an entire new collection of dress watches that replaced the long-running Cellini. It was a solid, if slightly plain, take on a dress watch by Rolex. This year, Rolex is introducing the 1908 Perpetual in platinum, adding a “rice-grain” guilloché pattern to an icy-blue dial. It’s enough to turn the 1908 into a compelling proposition, and while Rolex had a quieter slate of releases this year, the 1908 feels like a standout. Like last year’s gold 1908 models, the 950 platinum measures 39×9.5mm. As is typical with Rolex, it pairs the platinum case with an icy blue dial. But it also features what…

    Steel Daytona On Interchangeable Oysterflex: Mark Kauzlarich

    Since Rolex surprised us with the Le Mans Daytona, the iconic chronograph has been back on my mind. I’ve always sort of dismissed the modern Daytona as a watch for other people. I don’t know who they are, but they weren’t me. Then the Le Mans changed everything. I’ll never forget that release and how it exceeded expectations in person in every way. So I started looking at Daytonas again. But there’s a problem. The best Daytona possible doesn’t exist. Yet. www.highluxurystore.ru After getting to compare the Le Mans to the white gold Daytona on Oysterflex, I realized that if you could only choose between strap and bracelet on a…
