I am still counting up the times Burberry uses the terms “heritage, tradition(al), craftsmanship, innovative, ” and other similar adjectives brand commonly use when describing their new creations.
You recently got a first look at the new BMW by Ball watch collection here on aBlogtoRead.com. There you learned that Swiss Ball watches was to be a major timepiece making partner of the Bavarian Motor Works car company.
A few months ago Ball Watches & BMW jointly announced that they would enter into an agreement to produce high-end watches from Ball for BMW.
Some people call it “LUM-TEC’s best watch yet.” This is the LUM-TEC M26 limited edition watch. Out of the M collection it sports an automatic movement with a power reserve indicator and a solid tungsten carbide case…

It is rare that they release a totally new product, and for Basel World, that is just what they […]
I have been fascinated with this Breguet watch model since I wrote an article on Luxist a while ago about how it was seen on the wrist of Russian president Dmitri Medvedev. By the way, the above image is from Antiquroum via this webpage here. You can blame Breuget for not having enough images of […]
My opinion is that it takes years of learning about watches to really appreciate the little details that Perrelet puts into its watches…
I recall first learning about the Orient Diver Automatic Ref. CFD0C001B watch a while ago on a Japanese watch website…
More with the gray watches it seems. I’ve been writing about this trend pretty extensively on Luxist.com, but it has finally come to Bell & Ross. Actually I knew this since Baselworld back in March, but only now it connected with me that this is all part of the gray watch conspiracy – and watch […]
