Yesterday on “Watch A Day” I presented my first mechanical watch. Today I’m presenting my first Swiss mechanical. This Maurice Lacroix Grand Guichet GMT has an excellent Swiss movement, a useful complication, and Swiss build quality. But it’s not a GMT and the big date isn’t very big at all.
We’re not huge fans of today’s Rolex lineup, mainly because almost a million are produced every year, making them rather common. And, despite protestations to the contrary, mainstream Rolex models sell below MSRP all the time. But there is one big exception to the Rule of the Common Rolex: The Rolex Milgauss “Glace Verte” or GV.
