Roger Dubuis viste de rojo su salvaje Excalibur Aventador S

Es el hermano del Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S, pero con detalles rojos. Más hiperrelojería salvaje sin límites. Con esta nueva versión del potente Excalibur, la firma retoma la exacerbada mecánica a bordo de Lamborghini Squadra Corse. La manufactura apuesta por la complejidad tecnológica para recuperar su sofisticado diseño con la forma del calibre “duotor” —con cinco patentes—. Excalibur Essenza SCV12 es otra metáfora perfecta llevada al pulso del lenguaje hiperbólico del motor de Lamborghini. Un alter ego que luce dos espirales inclinadas a 45 grados, barras de suspensión y…

Gincredible! How And Why Gin Went From Murderous Swill To 007-Level Cool

The drunkard sunk more in disgrace, Had a look of brutality scowling; In his soul, in his heart, in his face, The gin like a demon was howling. So went a popular song from several centuries ago. Many years ago, far more than either of us would care to remember I suspect, not long after I met our esteemed Ian Skellern, we were in Damascus (as in the real place and not on some journey of revelation, although it was certainly that). Travelers relied upon word of mouth in those…

In-Depth: The Classic A. Lange & Söhne Datograph

The Datograph houses the Lange in-house flyback chronograph caliber L951.1 – a movement that was part of a changing landscape in terms of how enthusiasts, collectors, and the industry think about chronographs. Before its debut, little had occurred in the way of development of classic high-end chronograph movements for many years. We take it for granted that “high horology” is synonymous with “in-house,” but historically, it’s not true. Patek Philippe’s first in-house chronograph movement, for example, the CH R 27-525 PS, was only introduced in 2005. There were developments in more widely produced calibers like the Valjoux/ETA 7750, which came out in 1973, and there were, of course, the first automatic chronograph calibers of any kind, in 1969. We should also remember the F. Piguet ultra-thin chronograph calibers, 1180 and 1185, which came out in 1987. But mainly, high-end manufacturers relied on supplied calibers from chronograph specialists like Lemania. The Royal Oak Offshore is one example of this and illustrates the standard practice during the 1980s and 1990s, and even before. From launch, it used a movement based on the Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 889 with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module.

Oris has gotten behind a Seoul-based clean-up project on South Korea’s mighty Hangang River with the newest member of their Aquis diver’s watch family, the Hangang LE. The recent partnership with the pioneering Seoul KFEM, part of the Korean Federation for Environmental Movements is certainly a worthwhile move from Oris. The Hangang is South Korea’s second longest but most important river because it supplies water to the 10 million inhabitants of the country’s capital, Seoul. However after years of neglect,…
