A Blog to Watch: Hands on with the Girard-Peregaux Tri Axial Tourbillon White Gold

Almost a year after Girard-Perregaux unveiled the Tri-Axial Tourbillon complication in 18k pink gold (hands-on here), the company has just released its more modern twin in white gold. You may have missed last year's quiet entrance as Girard-Perregaux placed much attention on the new Constant Escapement series; however, with the introduction of the timepiece in white gold, the focus is now once again on the Girard-Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon.

Hodinkee: Introducing the Frederique Constant Worldtimer, A New Navy Blue Motif on the Original In-House Caliber

Frederique Constant is well known as the solid Swiss watchmaker that offers quite a few complications at accessible margins. One of said complications is their World Timer. We covered the original Limited Edition Frederique Constant Worldtimer a couple of years ago in a hands-on review. Now, Frederique Constant is reintroducing the model with a refinished dial in navy blue and updated accents. The new model is well balanced between complication/time-keeping, and, best of all, it continues to offer a lot of value by employing an in-house caliber.
