TUDOR REF. 7924

This is one of the important Tudor Submariners to own. The Ref. 7924, dubbed the ‘Big Crown’, due to its large 8mm crown and similar to its big brother, the Rolex Submariner 6538. New to this model when released in 1958, was the increased depth rating, doubling that of its predecessor and also sporting a thicker case. The no crown guard look for a tool watch, with its simplicity and symmetry is a look that is admired by many collectors. I tend to agree that there is certainly a purity with Rolex/Tudor swiss sports watch models without crown guards, both in its design and primitive functionality. read more

Geneva Top Lots from the May 16 Christie’s Rare Watches Auction

This time around, my inner collector geek faced an even greater challenge. This is not a theme-driven auction, nor does it revolve around any particular brand, era, or genre of any sort. Instead I came face to face and caseback to wrist with some seriously rare pieces of hardware to be left with the same mighty question of what got my heart beating and palms sweating.

With barely enough time to clear my head of all the grand steel chronographs on the block at the Phillips Start, Stop, Reset auction this weekend, I soldiered on to yet another important auction preview with the folks from Christie’s. read more

Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface Pink Gold

Those who’ve met me, and those who’ve stumbled across my Instagram account, know that I’m by no means a traditional watch guy. If it’s bold, obscure, colorful, or simply any shade of weird, I’m typically into it so long as it’s well executed and not the size of a dinner plate. I don’t lust after an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak A-Series, nor do I long for a black dial Rolex Submariner. Before I can begin waxing poetic about my time with one of no less than 81 current Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso models available, there are a few qualifiers that need to be laid out. read more
