Back in March I wrote about my experience hanging out on the IWC Plastiki with its crew in San Francisco. This was prior to the ship’s maiden voyage, which was to be an ambitious journey from San Francisco to Sydney. Please refer to the original article there for all the details on what the Plastiki […]

Here it is, hands-on coverage with a close to final production ready prototype of the highly anticipated Devon Tread 1 watch. While it tells the time and is a luxury item, the Devon Tread 1 shares very little with the rest of the high-end watch world. Despite the fact that it has plenty of moving […]
First thing I thought of when I saw these new watches from Breitling was “wow, these are pretty big.” They even wear larger than their ‘mere’ 45mm wide steel case would suggest. Probably because the case is on the flatter, broader side of things. This is Breitling’s newest watch to bear the ETA SuperQuartz COSC […]
The end of the month is almost here and you have just a bit more time to enter for a chance to win one of two beautiful mechanical chronograph watches from Marvin. Your choice of their 103 or 107 models. Retail priced at about $1,800 each. Click here to get to the giveaway page. It […]
The Magrette saga continues with two new watches. These new pieces serve a very specific purpose. They offer the beauty of Magrette’s hand-done Maori style engraving, but in a more subtle manner. Allowing most of the visible PVD black case to be masculine and strong in appearance. Each comes in a limited edition set of […]
This watch isn’t real… yet. But it likely will be. VicenTerra has an interesting offer for the first 100 people who put down money for one of these interesting GMT-3 watches. If they pre-order, it will cost them only 5,000 Swiss Francs as opposed to the anticipated retail price of 15,000 Swiss Francs. The catch […]
This could easily be your first episode of HourTime ever. We talk about the basics of watch collecting as a hobby, as well as dive into what a well-rounded collection should be all about. It is just chalk-full of watch lover on watch lover action. A must hear battle of the wits for all. Listen […]
Pierre DeRoche is one of those interesting indy luxury watch brands you could go your whole life without noticing, but you’d be missing out on some interesting stuff…
For 2010, two of Edox’s new models are meant for people who wish to measure speed. Dedicated to the World Rally Championship (WRC), these two quartz movement based watches look a lot like sophisticated modern stopwatches that go on your wrist. Just look at the large red chronograph pusher. Very serious looking instrument like pushers… […]
While there isn’t a whole lot new about this watch, it does have a great black and blue motif to it. This is a special limited edition version of the IWC Big Pilot watch that will exclusively be available in IWC’s North American boutique stores. There are still very few details about the watch, such […]
I am not always a fan of Invicta watches, but with the number of pieces they release, there are bound to be some cool ones. Lately I have been fascinated with watches that have wood in them. Some watches are all wood, while others use the material for the dial, or other elements of the […]
Oh Louis, how you tease us. Going back and forth between fascinating watch releases and not quite innovating enough for most watch heads to love you. I however have been a fan since the days when Tambour was a fresh name. Now the Tambour is the mainstay model for the brand, that is in need […]
Bar none, my favorite new watch for 2010 from Eterna is this wonderful heritage re-release model of the classic Super KonTiki from 1973. While the new and older version of the watch have some differences, the character of the original classic remains (thankfully). I first wrote about the original Eterna Super KonTiki watch here, discussing […]
It is cool, it is crazy, it is almost $420,000. “Piece Unique” watch maker Jean Dunand presents the Palace watch. A pretty incredible looking timepiece. In addition to my article over at Haute Living (see link bel0w), I have for you what I believe are the very first live photographs of the watch, that I […]
Tissot has a goal to always be associated with the racing circuit in America. Other brands follow things like Formula One and other types of motor sports that people in the US don’t really pay attention to. Tissot has been partnered with NASCAR (click here to read about their Danica Patrick watch), showing that it […]
Here are two fresh TechnoMarine Cruise Sport watches for you to enjoy. I first covered the 2010 Cruise Sport collection here hands-on while meeting with TechnoMarine. Now, after having some more intimate time with the watches I am proud to offer a full review of the new Cruise Sport collection…
