Helloooooo to myself and four others! Well I guess you have to start somewhere, so here we go Instagram! I launched Chronolux Fine Watches in 2005, and in that time I’ve seen some huge changes in what I do, how the watch industry has responded to the digital age, and how the independents have staged a remarkable rising to become almost mainstream, and probably mostly in how the internet has evolved from its infancy, through its dangerous, spiky haired adolescence and finally getting a little more sensible and regulated as it has matured. A lot has surely changed. So I’m starting this Instagram page with one of the finds of the last couple of years, a super cool little company called Lundis Bleus and this stunner, the ref. 1100-03 with galvanic rose gold dial on eggshell suede strap. #lundisbleus#independentwatches#independentwatchmaking#chronolux#watchesofinstagram
Rolex is a Swiss luxurywatchmaker. Founded by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in @london , England in 1905 as Wilsdorf and Davis, Rolex moved its base of operations to Geneva Switzerland in 1919 to avoid heavy taxation from a recovering post war Britain. The company is currently owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a private family trust. . DM For Repost . @designer.maxx @baselworld_watch
A lacquer, créme colored dial with extraordinary depth, a unique case shape with enormous presence, grand feuille watch hands and applied, black polished Breguet numerals. How can you not love the Sympathie from Roger Dubuis! 😍😊 Thanks to @a_collected_man for sourcing this for me! #pre03dubuis#rogerdubuis#sympathie#lacquerdial#chronograph #theydontmakethemliketheyusedto
Launched in 2005, the Ref. 5959 was Patek Philippe's first completely in-house designed and built chronograph movement; it was also the world's thinnest column-wheel chronograph. . 📸 by @sothebyswatches .
About that dial..... Take a look. What do you think? Beautiful huh. Rose gold chapter ring. Listen to the Keeping Time Podcast, Episode #33 to learn more about how Josh Shapiro creates his dials. Interested? Email email@example.com.
Live now. The early 1970s was a time of great change within the watch industry, where the concept of a luxury watch in steel was a truly revolutionary idea. As a result of this, @audemarspiguet introduced both the ‘BA’ (solid gold) and ’SA’ (steel/gold) variants of the Ref. 5402, shortly after the initial steel pieces, owing to client demand. This 5402SA carries the ‘AP’ logo at 12 o’clock, typical of later examples (from mid-400 serial onwards). The polished screws, bezel and case edges fantastically-contrast with the brushed surface of the case and bracelet. At 39mm in diameter, and only 7mm thick, the outer-case back correctly displays the unique serial number (No. 5XX), of only 951 steel/gold pieces produced in total. Powered by the ultra-thin AP caliber 2121, this watch comes fully-equipped with its original two-tone bracelet and clasp (end-links stamped D4, clasp signed 'AP’), original box and Archive Extract from Audemars Piguet. Available now. #audemarspiguet#ap#calendar#royaloak#5402st#5402#vintageap#steelwatch#jumbo#genta #independentwatchmaking#swissmade #rare#montres#watches#uhren#orologi#horology#watchporn#watchgeek#womw#watchanish#watchesofinstagram#hodinkee#acollectedman
The Faubourg de Cracovie - Dione et Rhea hand guilloché dial. The moniker Dione et rhea is borrowed from two Saturn’s moons, the two sub dials standing out in the darkness of the dial like moons. #czapek#chronograph#watches
