Fortunately, I became more acquainted with a ton of them pretty almost immediately, and today we have an extraordinary show for you that incorporates two of them.
First up is our visitor, Mr. William Massena, who you may recall from his scene of Talking Watches back in 2015 . You additionally may know him from his days at Timezone or Antiquorum or Bonhams, or possibly from his spot on the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneva. He’s been profoundly dug in the watch community for quite a long time and he’s somebody that I’ve since a long time ago known and appreciated. Regardless of whether we’re discussing watches, fitting, French verse, or some new eatery, I realize I will come out of the discussion better for having had it.
Then we have our own manager in-boss, Jack Forster. He’s right up there with William as far as legend status, and when we chose to have William on the show it was an easy decision that Jack co-have.

I sincerely can’t recall having at any point seen one of these abnormal watches in the metal previously. What you’re taking a gander at is an Audemars Piguet Tradition Perpetual Calendar from almost 20 years prior. This is a bizarre half and half of sorts, utilizing a pocket watch development in a wristwatch case that is styled after vintage square/pad pocketwatch cases from the AP file. Due to the development measurements, the platinum case is 47mm across however 8.5mm thick, giving it a truly novel presence on the wrist. While these were not especially well known when they were first delivered, they’ve become something of a religion exemplary among a specific type of genuine collectors.
