Tim Mosso’s “Watches Tonight” returns with a focus on micro editions from top luxury watch brands! Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Laurent Ferrier lead a line of impressive timekeepers from past and present, plus Tim discusses the most impressive watches that he encountered at Dubai Watch Week 2019. All of this and your watch collector wrist shots will feature tonight on “Watches Tonight!”
Micro-edition watches are limited editions – only more so. Tonight, Tim discusses four spectacular luxury watches from premier luxury watch brands.
First, we review the rare and exotic 1970s Rolex Day-Date 1831, a platinum micro-series of eight watches that was conceived for and sold to Middle Eastern clients of the Rolex crown. Second, Tim recalls the still-revered 2011 Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A-010 edition of twelve pieces, the first “green” Aquanaut and still the only green Aquanaut in stainless steel.
Third, our program focuses on the 2011 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo 15201TS, a 10-piece series for online watch collector community “PuristSPro,” also known as watchprosite.com; the stainless steel and tantalum Royal Oak PuristSPro 10th Anniversary watch sports a magnificent hand-engraved and skeletonized caliber 2121, a custom “P10” rotor, and a 39mm stainless steel case with tantalum bezel and bracelet links. Panerai’s six-piece Luminor 1950 Eight Days PAM 267 and its Angelus SF240 8-day movement also make the cut.
Finally, Tim transitions to his Dubai Watch Week 2019 coverage with an overview of the 12-piece limited edition Laurent Ferrier Tourbillon Grand Sport, a 44mm sports tourbillon that represents Laurent Ferrier’s first sports watch.
The best watches from Dubai Watch Week 2019 are those in the eyes of the beholder…. But this isn’t a democracy, and Tim’s picking winners!
An extraordinary 1970 Rolex 5100 Beta 21 vintage watch leads the line; it was the first Rolex quartz watch and the only Rolex designed by Gerald Genta. Next is the Charles Frodsham Double Impulse Chronometer, a traditionally executed British chronometer featuring combined contributions of A.L. Breguet, George Daniels, and Derek Pratt. The Chronometrie Ferdinand Berthoud FB1R6 regulator is fresh off a GPHG 2019 Chronometry Prize win, but Tim loves it for its indestructible carburized steel case.
The Mortiz Grossmann Hamatic is the Glashutte-based independent watch brand’s first automatic watch, and MG is reviving the ancient “hammer” automatic mechanism with modern-day luxury panache. H. Moser & Cie is a longtime house favorite and fan favorite on this show, but the new Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine surpasses even Moser’s lofty standards for beauty and imagination.
