Some time on the road this week might mean a reduced service, so my apologies for that.
We’ll do what we can to keep you up to date:-)
Michel Jordi has released an ‘Icons of the World’ Collection, celebrating eight notable locations, namely:
- China’s Great Wall
- India’s Taj Mahal
- Japan’s Mount Fuji
- Brazil’s Mount Sugarloaf
- Switzerland’s Interlaken with the mountains of the Eiger
- Switzerland’s Jungfrau, with its fountain Jet d’Eau
- America’s Statue of Liberty
- Russia’s Kremlin
Three pieces for each location will be made.
In titanium and an unusual red gold, this is a 46mm case.
Each location is revealed at 10 o’clock courtesy of the day/night indicator.
