Win a Rolex Submariner 16610 F-series: Watch buyers, watch collectors, and even those who occasionally sell watches know that Watches Live with Tim Mosso is the place to look, dream, and browse for your next luxury timepiece. Tonight’s array of premium watch brands includes an annual calendar flyback chronograph and a minute repeating perpetual calendar from Patek Philippe. Jaeger LeCoultre sports watches receive special attention thanks to a stunning triplet set including vintage watch tributes and modern watchmaking technology. Greubel Forsey of La Chaux-de-Fonds, arguably the premier watch manufacture for finish and complications, is represented by an extraordinary double tourbillon; one tourbillon makes 60- second circuits, and the other makes 240-second rotations. Excruciating hand-finish and extraordinary sightlines make this Greubel Double Tourbillon a feast for the eyes; bring a loupe! Not to be outdone, grail watch specialists De Bethune offer a DB28 “Kind of Blue” six-day power reserve with floating lugs, and 3D moon phase with Independent horology of the modern era is further represented by a pair of collectible FP Journe manual wind complications and a Laurent Ferrier Cloisonne Enamel Galet Traveller in white gold flies the flag for the second of our two upstart Geneva watch brands. Accessible watches from Omega and Zenith round out the evening’s offerings. • Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon 30 Degrees Technique 01 855 • Breitling Navitimer 01 Limited Edition AB0121C4/C920 • De Bethune DB28 Kind of Blue DB28BTIBN • FP Journe Tourbillon Remontoir Ruthenium • FP Journe Vagabondage III • Grand Seiko Spring Drive Automatic USA Edition Kira Zuri SBGA385 • Jaeger LeCoultre Tribute to Polaris 1968 Q2008470 • Jaeger LeCoultre Tribute to Deep Sea Q2028470 • 2018 Jaeger LeCoultre Polaris Automatic Q9008480 • Larent Ferrier Galet Traveller Cloisonne Enamel LCF012.G1.USAII.1 • Patek Philippe 5213G Retrograde Perpetual Calendar Minute Repeater • Patek Philippe 5960/01G-001 • 2018 Omega Seamaster Diver 300M • Omega Seamaster Professional 1200M PloProf • Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Meteorite 116519 • Zenith El Primero Captain Winsor Annual Calendar Chronograph
