“The body regulates the soul, and, like the balance-wheel, it is submitted to regular oscillations” – The new MB&F x Eddy Jaquet LMSE are watches extraordinaire

“The body regulates the soul, and, like the balance-wheel, it is submitted to regular oscillations” – The new MB&F x Eddy Jaquet LMSE are watches extraordinaire Jules Verne once said: “The body regulates the soul, and, like the balance-wheel, it is submitted to regular oscillations”.

Epitomising the cool ‘no worries’ vibe is the recently launched Bausele Vintage 2.0 Editor’s note: Bausele generously loaned us the Bausele Vintage 2.0 that we are reviewing today. Released recently, it is different to any watch I have personally owned or handled (given it’s a hybrid watch) and although it is not the usual mechanical watch we are used to, it is a handsome, great value for money bargain.

41 is the new 20 – Going hands-on with new Rolex Submariner 41 and Oyster Perpetual 36/41 We figured given there was so much talk about the increased 41mm sizing for both the new Rolex Submariners and the Oyster Perpetuals, this was a good time to look at them in person and see what we felt.
