Review: Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 with Blue Grand Feu Enamel Dial

Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 Breguet and tourbillons. You can’t really speak of one without mentioning the other. This is unsurprising given that it was Abraham-Louis Breguet who invented (and patented) the mechanism at the dawn of the 1800s. Some of the brand’s most breathtaking timepieces today are tourbillon watches. Take for example the Tradition Fusée Tourbillon, or the Marine Tourbillon Équation Marchante, both of which are titans in the industry. In 2013, Breguet introduced the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 and at that point in time, it was the…

Review: Hands-on with the Rolex Milgauss Ref. 116400GV

The Rolex Milgauss is an interesting timepiece in the Rolex collection. First launched in 1956 for scientists and engineers, the timepiece derived its nomenclature from the words “mille” and “gauss” (the latter being a unit of magnetic measurement) – literally translating to 1,000 Gauss. There were two iterations of the Milgauss in the early 50s and 60s – namely the Reference 6541 and 1019. The latter was produced until 1988, where it was discontinued due to the lack of popularity of the model. The Milgauss follows the concept of using…
