  2. When the A. Lange & Söhne Grand Complication was first announced at SIHH 2013 it got the entire watch industry's attention – as you would expect an extremely complex, 50mm diameter, $2.6 million watch to do – though only a handful of people were able to actually see the watch in person. Large scale models and official press photos had to suffice for most. But a few weeks ago a prototype Grand Complication made its way to New York City and we sat down with CEO Wilhelm Schmid and Director of Product Development Anthony de Haas to get a closer look at exactly what this astounding watch means for the future of A. Lange & Söhne. Full story here: hodinkee.com/blog/in-depth-a-lange-sohne-grand-complication

  3. John Goldberger doesn't play in the NBA (though, in his younger years, he could dunk a basketball – I've seen proof). He hasn't won a Grammy, nor has he dated Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, or Katy Perry (that we know of), but even if he had, he wouldn't talk about it. What John Goldberger is is a true horological scholar and serious collector of the highest order. In episode three of talking watches, this true connoisseur of the finest watches in the world unmasks a small portion of his remarkable collection for the very first time. Included are more than a few true dream watches, including two pieces that have never been seen anywhere in the world before today. This is talking watches with mega-collector and horological author John Goldberger...

  5. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph. This is a watch that is so known to many of you, it may not need much of an analysis – but this is HODINKEE and you can believe you're gonna get one. The Royal Oak Chronograph is a watch that has thousands of lovers the world over, and a few detractors, too. The ROC, as I'll call it henceforth, is something of a middle ground between two completely distinct Audemars Piguet buyers – the collectors, and, well, everyone else. The Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore families often appeal to very different people, but I'll get to that shortly. In this review, I tackle a mainstay in the AP lineup, and an interesting piece of haute horology, though one without its own in-house movement. I will look at how this 41mm column-wheel, vertical clutch chronograph wears, and if the matter of where the movement came from is even something worth noting at all. This is your HODINKEE Week On The Wrist with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph, and it's one worth spending some time with.
