Watches Live: Chronographs PLUS! Audemars Piguet, Rolex, Omega, Jaeger LeCoultre Complicated Chronos Tim on Instagram: Tim_Mosso Tim Mosso joins the online luxury watch community for a deep dive into several of Watchbox's best pre-owned Swiss luxury watch inventory including Audemars Piguet, Rolex, Omega, Panerai, IWC watches, Zenith watches, and Ball watches. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona meets the Omega De Ville Chronoscope Rattrapante on the field of battle. Additional food for though comes from the second of two entries within the Omega chronograph extended family. There Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Moonphase offers a Master Chronometer certification and a photo-realistic moon phase display. Audemars Piguet brings two Royal Oak chronographs to the discussion in the form of the Royal Oak Chronograph 26331ST - the 2017 edition - and the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 26170ST Safari, a classic model that ran from 2007 to 2015. Blancpain is a luxury brand that builds fine luxury watches but often gets overlooked when watch buyers aren't seeking the Fifty Fathoms dive watch family; we examine a Blancpain Leman Flyback Chronograph on the X71 bracelet to see what a Blancpain watch looks like above the waves. Tonight's discussion covers two different eras of IWC watches in the IWC GST Chronograph 3707 and the IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph Top Gun Miramar Ceramic 3890-02; one is large and ceramic, and the other is compact and titanium. If you like the IWC GST Chronograph 3707 on the show tonight, you'll love its authentic tritium-patina dial and classical "International Watch Co." signage. Jaeger-LeCoultre may have taken a conservative course with its 2018 Polaris collection, but the Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2 reminds us that La Grande Maison can impress when it chooses to flex its muscles. Finally two Panerai watches provide two very different looks for fans of the Italian-inspired Swiss brand. The PAM 503 is a complicated Panerai Radiomir 1940 chronograph; the PAM 332 is a Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante. We're holding court with live questions about luxury watches and giving away free watch related SWAG.
