Welcome to “My First Grail Watch,” a new interview series on aBlogtoWatch that explores the first major timepiece lusted after by important people in the watch industry. Today, we’re hearing from Magnus Michelsen, Marketing Director at Michelsen Watches.
2013 has been an interesting year for Chopard. On one hand they officially unveiled a new collection of Classic Racing SuperFast watches with in-house made movements, and on the other hand they have released this curious new collection of very well-priced Mille Miglia models that are purported to be a limited edition for 2013 alone. Is that the deal or is this an experiment for the future?
All-black and delightfully “mean”, the Breitling Super Avenger Military is a rare example of a 24 hour watch. In the United States we refer to 24 hour format time as military time. That is because here it is primarily the military that uses this format while civilians use a 12 hour format. We are partial to our AMs and PMs. Many who live or travel outside of the US know the the 24 hour format is used heavily all over the world for a range of purposes from television schedules to movie times.
Did you know that in a store deep in the streets of Hong Kong is a Rolex Oysterdate watch with a pot leaf dial? Whether or not it is aftermarket or authentic, it does exist. John and I are almost officially Rolex fans at this point and we discuss our current feelings about the brand. Omega gets some love as we discuss the Seamaster Aqua Terra 15,000 Gauss with its highly anti-magnetic movement.
While its everyday necessity undoubtedly is questionable, its splash of blue, its constellation of stars and the Moon’s humble but recurrent domination collectively enable this small window to lend a unique charm to any watch dial. Since its restart during the early 1990’s, A. Lange & Söhne has presented twelve models with this complication, but for the most part they did not entrust it with a more important role…
Looking at the Garmin D2 Pilot watch from the perspective of a watch lover and highly active person. This watch has a range of aviation and GPS features.
It is December and that means it is the season of giving once more. To help plan your Christmas shopping, we will be taking a look at a couple of gift guides and wish lists.

SalonQP 2013: A Most Personal Exhibition Of Fine Watches, Remarkable Brands And Astoundingly Difficult Crafts
My destination was the 2013 SalonQP fine watch exhibition, held between the 7th and 9th of November, in the Saatchi Gallery in the fabulous city of London…
Now here is a watch that requires an introduction being from Australia and in honor of Doctor Who. We’ve mentioned OWC watches before, but this is a new twist on dive watch designs.
OWC, formerly known as Orange Watch Company, is a small operation in, you guessed it, Orange, Australia. Founder Dan Fock is one of the most detail-oriented and perfectionist people I know, so it’s no surprise that customers are willing to wait a year or more for one of his watches.
Do you know what happened to Glashutte-based watch brand Tutima over the last few years? They underwent a major corporate pivot and completely changed their entire production of watches and also replaced all the ETA movements they used to use with in-house made movements. Yea, and they did all this in a relatively short period of time. ..
Interested in a convenient way to store your watches that is also incredibly secure? If so you’ll want to be familiar with the German luxury safe manufacture Stockinger which has been producing beautifully designed private safes since 1978. A reputation for excellent quality and craftsmanship has even led them to exclusive partnerships with discerning brands such as Bentley and Bugatti.
The latest model to be announced by Mk II is called the Fulcrum and it’s being advertised as an “American Milsub” and it’s Mk II’s vision of a theoretical milsub made for the American military.
