Monsieur Jean Dujardin: A Return to Hollywood’s Golden Age Glamour

February 28, 2012

2

In case any of you were wondering, no I was not watching the Oscars in support of any film or celebrity and lest I expose my dishonesty by rambling on about The Artist and its titular lead actor, I must admit that prior to catching up on entertainment news my only interest in the Oscars lay […]

Cartier Watches: A Luxe Investment? Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon Says Yes.

February 21, 2012

1

I’m not being snobbish when I tell you that I’ve never considered Cartier as a watch manufacture. In fact, I believe that you would be hard pressed to find watch enthusiasts who would classify Cartier timepieces as haute horlogerie; and while aficionados will be spitballing premiere marquee names like Patek Philippe (the inventor of the […]

MB&F Thunderbolt Given New Life: HM4 Razzle Dazzle Watch

February 20, 2012

0

I was talking about watches for Top Guns not too long ago. And then someone like Maximilian Busser & Friends comes along and outright builds a watch that is a “Top Gun” itself rather than just worn by one. If the original MB&F number four didn’t steal (and own) your gaze this one will. Cold […]

February 5, 2012

To those of you born in my era, I can almost hear the collective grown at the obvious “Danger Zone” pun. To you I say- HUSH. I’m referring to the Danger Zone only in terms of how close I am to spend money set aside for the mortgage on one of the new IWC Pilot […]

Homages. They’re often a point of contention; to a watch snob- there’s a thin (mostly non existent) line between a homage watch and a cheap fake (some might be expensive but seriously, they’re all cheap copies); to others and dependent on where you fall on the watch connoisseur spectrum, you’re either a collector who appreciates […]

Independent Watchmaking: Speake Marin Spirit Pioneer

January 5, 2012

As the wife will attest, beyond my love for her, there will always be that special place in my heart (and holes in my wallet) for established watch maisons; but lately I’ve been finding myself in the quiet caress of the independent watchmaker. They say the wandering eye has been the downfall of many relationships […]

Movie Watch: Ryan Gosling’s Watch in Drive – Patek Philippe (sort of)

October 9, 2011

2

I managed to catch “Drive” over the weekend and the movie was everything I expected it to be; and while many will feel that Ryan Gosling steals the show portraying the quiet smoldering stunt driver “Driver” in the movie, the real star was really on Ryan’s wrist- A Patek Philippe. Ryan Gosling’s Watch in Drive […]
