It feels like quite a long time since we first saw the Omega Seamaster Bullhead at BaselWorld this past spring. Now officially announced, this quirky new chronograph was inspired by the 1969 Seamaster Driver (aka the Bullhead) and sports only a few changes when compared to the original, and very rare, Omega Bullhead.
Not long after the introduction of their latest ProTrek flagship, the PRW3000, Casio has announced a new entry-level model that also features the updated Triple Sensor V3 technology.
Available this November, the Lux and Lambda represent a new direction for the conservative Glashütte brand as they move into small batch production of gold watches that are powered by a new range of in-house movements…
Hot on the heels of the incredibly cool El Primero Lightweight, Zenith has launched another limited edition El Primero, dubbed the 410 LE. The 410 is based on a very rare vintage El Primero model from the 70′s that looked almost identical, save for the original model’s smaller 38 mm case.
The Victorinox Infantry Mechanical watch was a new model for 2012 and offers a relaxed and casual wrist presence that should suit a wide range of dress and tastes.
I find a certain amount of comfort just knowing that De Bethune exists. I like that no matter how formulaic and PR driven the watch world may be, brands like De Bethune have found a foothold and are continuing to offer eccentric and exciting designs that help keep the often conservative luxury watch industry fresh.
Here we have one of my favorite chronographs from Baselworld this year. While it is certainly tough to beat Omega’s stunning Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, if you’re looking for something a bit more under the radar while still offering the charm of a Moonwatch, it’s going to be hard to deny the appeal of a titanium Speedmaster with a beautiful blue dial and Omega’s excellent 9300 co-axial chronograph movement.
The new high-tech Zenith El Primero Lightweight offers a number of cutting edge enhancements all made in the name of saving weight. With a movement crafted from silicon and titanium and a case in carbon and aluminum, this is essentially the El Primero Superleggera.
In honor of the Watches and Wonders show in Hong Kong, A. Lange & Söhne are premiering two new limited edition pieces. Launching additions to both the Lange 1 and Saxonia family, these new models are not to be missed and offer top tier complications from one of the world’s premiere watch manufacturers.
A new watch and brand from the guy that brought us GasGasBones straps. Take a look inside the introductory model from 6B Watches, the limited edition MK1 Pilot’s Chronograph.
Watches that emerge from the Voutilainen workshop in Môtiers, Switzerland are the kind of creations that can weaken the knees of any watch nerd. Their entirely handmade watches are the result of one Kari Voutilainen, a Finnish watchmaker trained at WOSTEP with a specialization in restoring complicated and rare wristwatches.
Zeitwinkel is a somewhat unknown brand making a range of dressy mechanical watches from their home in Saint Imier, Switzerland. While Zeitwinkel, whose name means “time angle” (in reference to a sundial), is only a few years old, they have managed to develop their own in-house movements and a range of watches in both 42.5 and 39mm sizes.
In its nearly three decades of existence, the Formula 1 has always been one of Tag Heuer’s entry level products and relied on quartz movements to keep prices as accessible as possible. Recently, Tag Heuer announced the first men’s mechanical Formula 1 model, a chronograph powered by their Calibre 16 automatic movement.
Schofield Watches, based out of Sussex, England, is a young watch brand that exhibits a very distinct and emotional sense of style. Their old world nautical aesthetic stems from the vision of owner/creator Giles Ellis and is interpreted by the landscape and heritage of England in a very charming, passionate and singular manner.
