Mr. Claret, I will take five! That ought to do just fine… Here is another super high-end, experimental, and unique exotic luxury watch designed to stimulate the masses and end up on the wrists of just a few. It is true that including variations on the word “extreme” as part of the name of something […]

“Well ain’t that pretty” I thought when checking out this new high-jewelry piece from Cartier this year. “Too bad it is a woman’s watch.” You could almost mistake it as a men’s piece given its 42.8mm wide size. Called “Temps Moderne de Cartier,” this watch is a high-end testament to the classic film “Modern Times” […]
Just a couple more days to enter to for a chance to win the cool Prometheus Baiji watch. Enter here.
In case you may have forgotten a wrist watch is a tool. Yea, I know… weird right? Originally these items were meant to be convenient ways of viewing and reading the time while you were doing other things. This was of course before all that fashion and style stuff rained on utility’s little parade. The […]
Originally released a couple of years ago, 2011-2012 sees new color variations for the Perrelet Skeleton Chronograph. It took a while for me to warm up to this unique style of timepiece but I am liking it now especially thanks to the refreshed dial and prices that don’t shock the heart. The biggest question I […]
Fortis F-43 Flieger Limited Edition Chronograph Alarm GMT Chronometer C.O.S.C. Dual Power Reserve Watch
The excessively long name of this reference number 703.20.92 LC05 Fortis watch pretty much says it akk. This is among the most complex and expensive Fortis watches I have ever seen. Limited to just 100 pieces the F-43 is a tour de force in its own right. Is it a good watch for you? Well […]
This is the third time I have written about the Clerc Hydroscaph Limited Edition Chronograph watch, and there is an interesting lesson to be learned here. Normally I would have stopped at two articles, but the third one is merited for an interesting reason. What you see here is the final production version of the […]

We also discuss the aBlogtoRead.com Limited Edition Watch Winder by Wolf Designs (that you should probably get), Hublot, A. Lange […]
One of the most notoriously difficult to find German watch brands is Damasko. They tend to make cool, high-function tool watches for a fair price. If you are a fan of Sinn, you’ll also like Damasko – and it goes without saying that Damasko’s designs are highly inspired by Sinn timepieces (which are also less […]
In a recent interview with Hublot’s CEO Jean Claude Biver he mentioned to me how Hubot will put a lot of focus into Asia (namely China) in 2012. Boy, he wasn’t kidding – and I expect a full of series of spectacle style events to ensue in the next few years that only Hublot knows […]
Like all industries, the world of timepieces is an ecosystem. Watches are designed, produced, and eventually purchased. That latter part of the necessary cycle is one that is complex and difficult to understand – especially for watch writers and enthusiasts who typically have only their own experiences to reference. Most of the time, the relationship […]
While it is true that before Bell & Ross became famous for being the “square watch brand” they were making really nice round watches, it still feels novel for them to be making nice round watches…
“HyperChrome” sounds like a pretty cool name if you ask me. That could be the name a neat video game or anime TV show. But no, for 2012 the HyperChrome is going to be a new collection of watches from Rado. In this article I am debuting two of the new HyperChrome watches, but according […]
On Jan 27th, I had the pleasure of talking to Beat Weinmann of ochs und junior, as a follow-up to my review of the selene tinta. Allow me to thank Mr. Weinmann for his time. PH: One of the things that came up in the comments on my review is the cost of ochs und […]
The limited edition aBlogtoRead.com Watch Winder by Wolf Designs is now available for purchase while pieces last. As previewed a few days ago, this useful winder is a necessary accessory for most people who own automatic mechanical watches. I’ve worked closely with Wolf Designs to bring dedicated aBlogtoRead.com readers a special item that celebrates our […]
No doubt it is cool. It is also wildly expensive and a showpiece above all else. This new highly limited edition watch from Richard Mille is the RM 056 and comes in an all sapphire crystal case. It is very visually intriguing and costs a mere $1,650,000. Probably easier to laugh about the price rather […]
