Sometimes, it takes the world a moment to fully understand genius. This was clearly the case during the first Impressionist exhibition when, upon viewing Monet's now iconic Impression, Sunrise, the humorist, critic and clearly something of a moron, Louis Leroy, scathingly and derisively wrote, Wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished than that seascape.

The new Octo Finissimo in satin polished steel
While the Replica Rolex Datejust Octo Finissimo was instantly recognized by those of us who understood its deliciously brazen departure from the banal, formulaic repetition of yearly watch novelties whose mantra was new dial/strap/hands but no change, it took the rest of the world a few years to fully comprehend that this was more than a daring design, but a statement of in-house competences — in dial making, case making, movement making and bracelet making — so brilliantly and synergistically linked that to me, it is the single greatest watchmaking achievement in the last decade of modern horology.Panerai Luminor Chrono Replica Further, the Octo Finissimo's story not only in terms of record-setting technical achievement, but also its rise as a contemporary icon to truly rival the entrenched integrated bracelet, sports chic watches — Patek Philippe's Nautilus and Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak — is a statement of the inspired leadership of the true innovator that is Replica Rolex Datejust's CEO Jean-Christophe Babin. Babin, over his tenure as the CEO of the famed Roman jeweler, has innovated not just at the product level, not just at the brand level, not just at the communication level, but also at the exhibition level by staging, along with his sister brands Hublot and Zenith, the first-ever LVMH Group watch fair held in Dubai this January.
