Watches capable of indicating the time in all the official 24 time zones of the world usually come with a first-class price tag. Faithful to its philosophy of ‘accessible luxury’, Frederique Constant’s steel Worldtimer retails at an economy class price of under EUR 3,500. First launched in 2012, the Worldtimer is one of the brand’s […]
If a conservative bastion of watchmaking like Rolex proposes a 42mm white gold watch on a black rubber strap as the epitome of sporty elegance, well, you’ll have to admit that times have changed. Rolex seems to have tapped into the zeitgeist for larger luxury sports watches doubling up as watches that can be worn […]
When it was introduced in 2011, the Annual Calendar Regulator 5235G raised some eyebrows among Patek Philippe’s more conservative collectors. Associated with elegant, 3-hand dress watches, the Calatrava suddenly appeared with a complication and a most unusual dial inspired by historic regulator clocks – a first for a Patek Philippe wristwatch. But there were more surprises, […]
Chronoswiss unveiled a new collection of regulators at Baselworld 2019 with three dial options and two case sizes, totalling six pieces to choose from. These are evolutions of the original Classic Regulator line with updated dials, hands, cases and bracelets, taking on new personalities without abandoning the original formula. The new watches have a sportier, […]
H. Moser & Cie. introduces the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine, a limited edition of 50 pieces in red gold or steel. Like all the Concept watches at Moser, the dial is stripped down to its bare essentials. Set against a majestic dark blue aventurine sky, the Moon is the undisputed star of the show […]
Yesterday, we introduced the new standard, modern, classic Monaco watch, now equipped with in-house calibre Heuer 02 replacing the now-discontinued blue-dial Monaco Calibre 12… The end of an era. Is it, really? Well, before permanently turning the page on the Calibre 12, TAG Heuer has a special surprise, with a new limited edition… Meet the […]
The 50th-anniversary celebrations of the iconic Monaco watch and its early automatic chronograph movement aren’t over yet – it’s still 2019 after all. Yet, after a series of super-limited editions, one for each decade, it is time to come back to regular production watches. On the occasion of this commemorative year, TAG makes an important move on its classic blue-dial, 3 o’clock-crown Monaco – the modern one, not the Steve McQueen-inspired model. Say goodbye to the Monaco Calibre 12 and its outsourced movement. Say hello to the new TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02, with the brand’s own chronograph movement.
During Time To Move, Swatch Group own event to present the new collections, Glashütte Original has presented several watches totally in line with its usual conception of watchmaking, such as the facelifted Senator Chronometer or an engraved PanoInverse. Yet, the star of the show, the watch that the Saxon brand presented first, the main novelty for 2019… is a watch none of us actually expected from the brand; a dive watch collection named SeaQ. Following our first look right after its presentation, it is time to now have a closer look at the modern SeaQ Panorama Date, to see if this Saxon dive watch is convincing (or not).
For the third year in a row, following the very original and arty Orion “De Stijl” and the sporty Club Campus Amsterdam, Dutch retailer ACE presents a collaboration watch with Glashütte-based watchmaker Nomos. And for the third year in a row, they hit the right note. The already existing Zürich World Timer (Weltzeit in German) was […]
Jean-Marc Pontroué was appointed CEO of Panerai in 2016, invigorating the brand with new energy. Change was needed but with a brand like Panerai, whose fame is based on a unique concept (1930s to 1950s military dive watches), evolution can be the enemy. We took the opportunity of the launch of the Panerai Luminor Marina […]
