SIt’s Basel time and a couple of our buddies are in Switzerland looking at fancy watches and reporting back on some of the coolest ones. For example, take a look at this L-Evolution Tourbillon by Blancpain. It’s an automatic watch with a twist: the power reserve is actually on the rotor, a feat (at least in watchmaking) akin to riding a horse backwards while juggling plates.
It’s obviously not a huge deal, but it’s a cool, quirky way of reading the power reserve in an industry that is, at best, resistant to change.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
