I would soon arrive back at the lodge knowing I had to face a post-Veyron existence that would assuredly be a more enlightened but perhaps less exciting path. I had met a hero, and I had eaten the forbidden fruit. It's not necessarily that the Bugatti Veyron is a new standard among supercars (which was certainly true when it was released), it's that the expanse that exists between the sorts of cars that have been my daily drivers (think: '89 Blazer S, '94 V6 Cavalier Wagon, '91 Mazda 929) and a car like the Bugatti Veyron gives me a true and literal understanding of the term "supercar". If Clark Kent were a car, he may well be a Jeep Cherokee or an Oldsmobile Alero, but Superman is of a different planet, and the Bugatti Veyron is simply out of this world.
But this quality of the Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710BLNR can also work against it, especially if what you want is a more serious and somber timepiece. In my opinion, the Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710BLNR is definitely more casual and fun and if that is not your thing, then you might be better off with the Ref. 116710LN's black bezel. The Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710LN is a bona fide modern classic that can do no wrong in my books.
"Fantastic!" Jack Khorsandi says that word so often, you'd think it was his middle name. The always "up" Khorsandi, in fact, has many things to be happy about - hundreds of them. Literally hundreds. And most of them have a certain distinctively horseshoe-like letter of the Greek alphabet stamped on them. Yes, Jack Khorsandi is one of the world's preeminent Omega watches collectors, and he's built a temple to his obsession like none other with Jackmond - the jewel-like Beverly Hills boutique filled with everything and anything having to do with that beloved horological concern from Bienne, Switzerland.
For the MB&F HM6 watch MB&F worked with David Candaux Horlogerie Creative to design the movement. I recall with the HM4 that when MB&F released it, they first showed off the movement and then the final timepieces. They did that because the movement was in and of itself a work of art, and seeing it really didn't give you a good idea of what the overall timepiece was going to look like. The situation is the same with the MB&F HM6. The movement has a life of its own and is meritorious as a mechanical creation without a case. It is produced from 475 parts and is unlike most other movements I have seen.
