Naturally, Rolex is represented by the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 16520 “Zenith” and Rolex Submariner 116610. We start with Patek Philippe’s 5270R perpetual calendar chronograph to consider the scope of excellence produced within Geneva’s bounds at a level Rolex never attemps. We offer examples of Patek’s finish and watchmaking craft on a far smaller scale from Geneva’s Laurent Ferrier, a small watch brand whose Galet Micro-Rotor and Galet Square Boreal are under the lens tonight. Rolex’s great historic rival, Omega watches, are present in the form of a classic Omega “James Bond” Seamaster 300M albeit with a twist, this is the Omega Seamaster 2231.80.00 titanium Seamaster 300M with the electric blue dial that Bond never knew. What better alternative to Rolex than its in-house rival, Tudor watches? We have a Tudor Heritage Black Bay 79230 on the table tonight for comparison’s sake. Oris watches receive careful consideration thanks to an Oris Big Crown Pointer Date D26-286 HB-RAG limited edition vintage pilot’s watch tribute. Finally the Vallee de Joux receives its due courtesy of two Audemars Piguet Royal Oak models: references Royal Oak 15400 and Royal Oak 15202. For good measure the Gerald Genta Solo Biretro flies the flag for the watch brand once known as Gerald Genta and today known as “Manufacture Bulgari.” We're holding court with live questions about luxury watches and giving away free watch related SWAG. Tonight, we're sharing and discussing a cross-section of the best luxury watches in the Watchbox inventory. This is Watches Live, episode 22.
