Hands-on with the ArtyA Son of Sound was an experience with one of the more interesting watches from one of the more interesting brands at Baselw0rld 2013. We first debuted the Son of Sound guitar-style watch here. Certainly polarizing the Son of Sound is a further effort by ArtyAs Yvan Arpa to connect with the rock and rollers his brand does so well with.

It is not often that one gets to handle and spend time with a watch of such horological importance. In my recent visit to the Isle of Man with Roger Smith (that you can read about here), Roger asked me if I wanted to see something special. I did not know what he had in mind, being that I thought that everything he produced at his studio was special already.
When I hear the name “Calatrava” I think of Patek Philippe, and when I think about Patek Philippe I think about tradition. Tradition in the sense of a watch means a lot of things. It usually implies timeless design, and often a retention of values that your father or grandfather would have probably recognized.
Always a fan of a well-sorted diver, these new models from Sinn have been flirting with my wallet since we first saw them at BaselWorld last week. The all-new Sinn T1 and T2 divers offer a different perspective on the tool diver platform we’ve come to expect from Sinn after such hits as the U1, U2 and UX divers.
aBlogtoWatch takes you inside the new factory of Detroit-based Shinola. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several months, you’ve undoubtedly heard the buzz about a new watch brand, one that hails from within our own shores – right here in the good old US of A..
The Perrelet Turbine Chronograph was announced more than a month ahead of BaselWorld and we got the chance to see this interesting and dynamic watch in person while in Switzerland for last month’s show.
For 2013 the newest member of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean collection is the long-awaited GMT. Just before the annual Baselworld watch trade show event we debuted to the world the new Planet Ocean GMT GoodPlanet watch here. That blue and orange version of the new GMT watch bears the GoodPlanet foundation name…
The past decade has seen a dramatic uptick (pun intended) in impressive horological innovation. From constant-force escapements to hydro-mechanical movements, mind-blowing complications are the name of the game. And, like timepiece enthusiasts everywhere, I get giddy with excitement learning about each new breakthrough as they are revealed- generally in grand fashion – by manufacturers…
Hands-on look at the Rolex Daytona 116506 platinum watch with brown ceramic bezel and ice blue dial.
This cute ladies watch from Cartier is called the Secret Panda. I don’t use the term “cute” all that often to describe timepieces, but this one certainly is. In all 18k white gold clad in diamonds, black sapphires, and two emeralds for the eyes, this little panda is literally humping the watch…
Mondaine is a brand that I quite like from a design and price standpoint, but unfortunately, the last several years have seen very little new from the typically strong brand. A few years ago, they started to test with sport models, and had even started to include tritium gas tubes into the hands of a lot of their watches…
Casio has been busy updating some of their most popular lines and we are seeing that work come to fruition when looking at all their Baselworld 2013 releases. Welcome in the great-looking Edifice EQW-A1200 timepiece family. Not only are the G-Shocks getting new editions, so too, are the Pro Trek watches we’ve covered and the Edifice…
Hands-on look at the 2013 Citizen Satellite Wave-Air GPS syncing watch with Eco-Drive technology.
Bell & Ross had a strong collection of new watches for 2013 at Baselworld this year. My personal favorite model is the BR 126 Blackbird, a limited edition model with a personality that is meant to honor the original of Bell & Ross as a brand.
The good news is that new watches in 2013 are better than ever, and take it from people who’ve seen the watches. Top 10 lists are great, but a few we’ve seen are written by people who haven’t even seen the products…
The TAG Heuer MikroPendulumS has just been announced and it looks to be a technical tour-de-force. Finally TAG Heuer has been able to perfect their pendulum magnetic escapement concept enough to put it into a production timepiece…
