In this week’s collection review, Christian takes a look at the collection of a T&H fan named Giovanni. Giovanni has an interesting approach to his collection, specifically gravitating towards pieces that interest him both mechanically and aesthetically.
His first piece is, interestingly, the antithesis of this kind of specificity, being a piece left to him by his grandfather – an Omega Seamaster, which his grandfather received as a gift on the occasion of his retirement. His name is engraved on the back, which he happened to share with Giovanni, adding to the piece’s already MASSIVE sentimental value.
Next, we get into two JLC Reversos (one, a Tribute to 1931; the other, a Grande Date). From there, we have a modern Rolex Submariner that, although simple, is still an incredible watch. In keeping with the Rolex theme, we have a Coke GMT from 1999 that serves as a surrogate for Giovanni’s desire to own a so-called “Fat Lady” GMT Master. For Giovanni’s next piece, he and Christian are in full agreement: the JLC Geophysic.
