My Collection
A. Lange & Sohne, Lange One, (2001). The first mother-of-pearl dial engraved with a technique called “guilloche,” done by a special machine. Previous to this, it was thought impossible to engrave the thin irridescent mother of pearl. In order to accomplish this, Lange starts with a 2mm thick slice of the pearl shell. This is most beautiful dial I’ve ever seen on a watch. At this time only 25 of these watches have been produced.
Blancpain Aqualung (2000) One of my favorite watches. Simple execution with White Gold markers, numerals and hands plus a display back. A brushed stainless steel watch that is light as a feather. SOLD
Blancpain Flyback Chronograph (1999) One of the thinnest automatic chronographs on the market and a stunning dial. Plus this has the added complication of a flyback mechanism.
Blancpain Perpetual Flyback Chronograph (2000) A very rare piece in Red Gold, more than 390 parts which together mechanically track the passing of time one moment, one day, one month and one year at a time until 2100, when Pope Gregory decreed that 2100 will not be a leap year, giving us a chance to catch up on our fractionated days.
