Twin caged, double tourbillon inclined 30 degrees

Twin caged, double tourbillon machines These Twin caged, double tourbillons are so rare, the first 6 out of 10 took several years, nobody was counting in 2004. Greubel Forsey was creating Opus 6 for Harry Winston. Arguably or not, in gold, 6 of these plus 22 will make 28 in gold. 11 done in platinum. Over a series of photos, and I hope that the 38 other owners…will share better ones, I hope to explain, no…encourage…that to obtain even 1 in today’s low market, at any price just above 1,000,000 if found in working,...

Personal Leica M240 and Leica Q

Personal Leica M240 and Leica Q

  MY very own Leica M240 and Leica Q After 6 months…The Leica M240 is a status symbol that can cut both ways. Personal advice, since I have been using one with ALL the options on, even to the leather colors is to think of the price. In dollars, it will cost $10,000 sgd to have it functional. Add another $10,000 to make it useful. Minus 20% off all if you can find a good used piece. It is so powerful and mind bending as a tool, that it will now split my main hobby (which I was not good at), which is photography into my blog. It is...

Leica M240, Pentax 645 on Greubel Forsey

Leica M240, Pentax 645 on Greubel Forsey Leica…but then http://www.kenrockwell.com/pentax/645d/I’ve been using this Pentax 645D for two years. Only the Leica M240 and the Sony’s ability to share all my Summilux, crons, etc..moved me to request for a Sony. Unlike my Greubel Forseys, I don’t pay for cameras…only the Leica I have to buy. My previous cameras were 4×5 film systems, Pentax 67 and the Mamiyas. I moved to digital Canon 1Ds for quite a number of years, enough to produce 3 paid books. So…this is...

Clutter at Home is arguably desired

Clutter ? My home , my or our house, zen and clutter Chinese New Year is where almost all the Chinese community do some house , home , and clutter cleaning. Well , my clutter is both my peace with Zen and my home. I can’t clean it by anything over a factor of maybe 10%. With 6,700 of indoor area..erm that’s almost 2 to 3 sizes of most homes here…I wasn’t rich, just blessed with good friends who then in 1989, knew I needed a BIG place with a low price. They also knew I was sentimental. The man who will not sell his...

Vianney Halter, Jules Verne rivets

That Jules Verne rivets and steel experience Vianney Halter and watch makers took 300 years to put rivets and make them so small, ant head size, to create that Jules Verne rivets and steel , steam punk aesthetic. More, it’s an experience. All three watches here are no longer made. Neither can any of the three be remade or duplicated at their original costs. How rare can things get, if you don’t go above $300,000 ?  ...

Cameras in World War Two ? New cameras Sony RX?

Cameras ? Cameras ? Thinking of new cameras SONY RX or Leicas ? That’s me taking my own selfie now…by placing by camera, a Sony RX1 35mm with a hi contrast BW setting, manual focus to the support, an exercise rower, then placing the RX1 on it. But…Journalists were issued Speed Graphics till after the Korean War. Robert Capa used a HUGE camera, probably so, for his famous shots on Omaha Beach. Journalists used Speed Graphics till after the Korean War. There were also a lot of Graflex Speed and Crown Graphics cameras used by...
