Zach’s top 5 Watches & Wonders novelties with an unlimited budget

This is the time of year I wish that I owned the patent for the coffee cup sleeve or happened to be the son of an oil baron.

EVENT: 5 rare high-complication watches from Jaeger-LeCoultre in a stunning vineyard setting

Jaeger-LeCoultre are known as the watchmaker’s watchmaker with good reason.
