Grand Seiko, Patek Philippe, &... Devon? Audemars Piguet Royal Oak to Seiko Presage & Tudor Watches

Watch buyers and watch collectors join Tim Mosso for a night of discovery and discussion; premier brands on hand include Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Tudor Watch, Grand Seiko, IWC watches, Vacheron Constantin, and Zenith watches. This evening’s program includes a broad range of complications including GMT watches, chronographs, power reserves, and flyback chronographs. A strange visitor from California arrives in the form of Devon’s otherworldly Tread 1 belt-driven watch. The IWC Big Pilot’s Watch family is alive and well in the titanium limited editions Big Pilot Heritage 48, and we investigate one of the world’s most affordable enamel dial chronographs in the Seiko Presage Chronograph SRQ019. IWC’s all-time best seller, the Portuguese Chronograph 3714 makes an appearance in stainless steel, and we discuss the stunning IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 5023-07 in white gold. Grand Seiko is present and correct thanks to the glorious ivory dial of the SGM221 automatic GMT.
