Anyone know?

Looks great with a leather jacket.

They have also been involved in Cartier's Tourbillons, for their Fine Watchmaking collection.  The watch that comes to mind is the Pasha Tourbillon Chronograph with 8 day power reserve.  Chanel also has a Tourbillon that was created by Renaud et Papi.  There may be others but I'd have to look at some of my reference materials to be sure.

Thanks, Dino. Any clue if they do the movements for H. Moser as well?

Fourth day of the Chinese New Year - wearing my charismatic Celadon Imperial with a cashmere Imperial Red shawl collar cardigan and orange linen shirt (reminiscent of auspicious mandarin oranges of course!).

Pepsi + leather = looks good, cyc.

Sorry.  I really haven't looked into H. Moser closely, so I do not know.

Man, it's quiet in here lately.

 

Just to follow on with the RP/Moser thing:  as far as I know, APRP make 90% of their stuff for AP (as their ownership would suggest), but make some very high complications for others, notably Cartier and Chopard in recent years.  But it would surprise me if they made anything for H Moser & Cie: firstly because Moser are a small, specialised manufacture - priding themselves on making their movements in house.  And secondly, because I'm not aware of Moser making unusual complications for special editions and trade fairs - the kind of thing that others might outsource for an expensive one-off marketing promotion.  I could be wrong of course.  Maybe they have had some input into their own movement designs?  But manufacture, I doubt very much.

 

Anyway, another subject: the transformative effect of a strap on a watch.  I bought my Longines Column Wheel Chronograph a couple of weeks ago, and I liked it.  But I didn't love it.  The polished steel case, steel-grey dial and polished bracelet are all quite smart, and very comfortable to wear.  But the lack of contrast in the dial combined with all that polished surface made it at once both a little flashy, and lacking in personality.  The other day, the strap I ordered at the same time from Hirsh, finally showed up.  Now the new watch I only liked, I can love properly.

Here's to the redemptive powers of the American alligator. Especially blue ones.  This also solves the problem of overlap with the other steel-on-steel watch I'm expecting some time soon - my second unauthorised purchase.  Now it all makes perfect sense. :)

Did you just get it? I remember seeing a Cartier purchase recently from you, is this another new acquisition? Looks nice and wear in good health, I debated between BLNR and Exp. II 216570 black dial and this will go with Exp in the end.

I like the BLUE, mimo.

Very inspired choice!

Suits that Longines quite nicely, methinks.

And I really hate to trump all these awesome Rolex sports models that have been recently posted, but I spent most of my weekend wearing this uber-exclusive timepiece right here:
