Sports watches – two interpretations: Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Chronograph and LAURENT FERRIER Sport Auto 40
It is rather difficult for a watch lover to select their favorite watches. A clash of opinions and facts is inevitable when several watch enthusiasts get together. When passion takes over, the discussions can become heated. In the watch world, this usually means a lot of fun, laughter, and positive vibes. The Lifetime Awards Gala 2023 watch selection process was no different. I was honored to be part of the jury with a select group of nice people. For me, the struggle was not about fighting for my favorite piece but about the selection process. A fight is easy, but the reasons behind it are complicated… And we all know this from the world around us.
At the end of August and the beginning of September the watchmaking world was in the spotlight for a new edition of the Geneva Watch Days. Born in the midst of the pandemic as an alternative to the former SIHH (now Watches & Wonders), which was cancelled due to the obvious problems associated with the terrible disease, the GWD has grown strong as an independent event. This year’s edition gathered nearly forty brands, offering both exhibitors and journalists/collectors the chance to enjoy a much more relaxed environment.
