Munichtime, the one and only watch exhibition in Germany, is still open until Sunday 18:00. I highly recommend you to come to Munich if you have the time and possibility.
Here at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich today the 5th edition of the privately organized watch exhibition Munichtime opened its doors. I invite you to take a first look.
The Nicolas Mathieu Rieussec Seconds Chronograph was the inspiring example for the Montblanc Rieussec Chronograph. I have pictures for you showing the original chronograph from 1821/1822.
Many of you have seen the Montblanc Rieussec Chronograph. But did you know where its design originates from? I had the chance to take pictures of the 1821/1822 original that belongs to the Patek Philippe Museum.

As promised here is my first update with additional information about the new Nomos Glashütte movements DUW 1001 and DUW 2002, some new pictures and finally the official prices of the watches.
NEW! What a sensation! Nomos Glashütte Lambda and Nomos Glashütte Lux. Two new timepieces powered by two new, very, very sophisticated in-house produced calibers.
One would not believe that this is a Nomos! Just stunning! Have a look and discover the next big step forward of the privately owned manufacturer in Glashütte / Saxony / Germany.
In my eyes this is one of the most remarkable watches IWC presented in the last years; it combines beauty, elegance and mechanical craftsmanship done in-house.
