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.
Are you ready for something new and fun at aBlogtoWatch? It is a fresh type of watch giveaway contest that we think you’ll enjoy. It combines this post page on aBlogtoWatch with the image sharing social media platform Instagram. The giveaway involves two elements, and to participate you will need to have an Instagram account. Further good news is that there are THREE watches we are giving away.
It is not often that we at aBlogtoWatch write three articles on the same timepiece, but the UTTE gets that treatment. At Baselworld 2013 Arnold & Son released this watch as the world’s (current) thinnest tourbillon. We debuted the UTTE watch for you here. “UTTE” stands for “ultra thin tourbillon escapement,” and it certainly is. Arnold & Son narrowly beat Piaget to production of the thinnest tourbillon ever. Being the most thin isn’t really that important to us. What is important is that the watch is very wearable, and very attractive.
Now widely available for purchase as the Omega Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss, this new Aqua Terra uses their calibre 8508, making the >15,000 Gauss the world’s first completely anti-magnetic watch.
For the 2013 aBlogtoWatch holiday giveaway, the lucky winner will accompany me (Ariel Adams) on a several day trip to RGM for a unique experience at how watches are made in America. We will spend two days at the RGM manufacture learning about how they make American watches the original way…
Helson is one of those brands that I’ve often viewed from afar – I’ve been well aware of them and the love their products have gotten from various watch forums. I say from afar, as I’ve not had the chance to review any of their seemingly excellent lineup. Today, though, we’ll kill two birds with one stone – I’ve got my first hands-on review of a Helson model, and it also happens to be the first bronze watch I’ve had on my wrist this year.
Second only to the common jest of placing a sundial on the face of a wristwatch is the suggestion that there be an hourglass. Yes, the timing device of antiquity has a very low occurrence of actually being referenced on modern timepieces in any significant way. That perhaps is due to the fact that incorporating sand in a watch dial isn’t always the best idea. Nevertheless, the enterprising mind behind the Russian watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin decided that he wanted to be the first person to do it.
As the winner of the October 2013 aBlogtoWatch giveaway, I can tell you the Egard Black Shade limited edition watch fits in well in the city of Los Angeles. Dress codes are a rarity in LA, however, being functional as well as stylish is still the name of the game. The Egard Black Shade watch beautifully captures both of these elusive qualities while working as an elegant dress watch or a casual sport piece.
The newest addition to the highly functional ProTrek family is the PRW3000 and it is a jewel with no jewels. As a mechanical watch aficionado I tend not to wear quartz watches… maybe it’s snobbish of me or simply realizing that with limited time in each day, I just want to have something on my wrist that I appreciate and I find has soul. However, since I am also an active and practical person, I also make three exceptions to this rule: Garmin sports watches; Swatch watches; and Casio watches…
We’ve been rather popular this month, with aBlogtoWatch giving away a $4,400 Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Chronograph watch. You have just a few more days to enter for a chance to win it (here) before time runs out…
Earlier in 2013 MB&F announced its first non-watch item, the MusicMachine produced in collaboration with the last remaining music box maker in Switzerland, Reuge. Anyone who has been around the watch circuit knows about Reuge because their products often appear at watch trade shows and in some high-end watch stores.
