For 2013 Chopard will release a new version of the L.U.C Engine One watch that was originally debuted back in 2010 (we have some hands-on pictures here). The new watch is called the L.U.C Engine One H, “H” likely standing for “horizontal,” which is exactly what is new about this timepiece.

Unique Swiss watch maker MCT is sort of back on the scene after being quiet for a few years. The brand’s famous Sequential One timepiece was developed by movement designer Denis Giguet, who later left the brand. When I last spoke to him he told me that he would be working full time at Van Cleef & Arpels of all places.
For 2013 Perrelet will be adding a chronograph version of the Turbine to the popular watch collection. Originally released several years ago as a sort of test sport watch, the Turbine became quite popular and has since spawned a lot of versions, including the original 43mm wide size and a later Turbine XL 50mm wide size…
This is the Hublot watch for people who don’t traditionally like Hublot. It is in the Classic Fusion collection and has a skeletonized tourbillon movement. To be honest, I sort of get a sense of glee when I post a picture of an Hublot watch on my wrist, share it on Instagram (aBlogtoWatch), and people battle on whether it is wonderful or hideous in the comments.
Linde Werdelin must have been working overtime through the holidays as they have announced a new two version run of the Oktopus II Moon. Three years ago, LW launched the Oktopus Moonphase and these new models build upon the same platform but will be limited to just 59 units.
Want to dive deep into the minutia of an often over-looked Seiko diver? The Seiko SBDC007 (aka the Shogun) is yet another JDM model that you likely won’t see in any North American stores.
Linde Werdelin has announced three new entries into the SpidoLite II family of limited edition sport watches. The new SpidoLite II Titanium releases include Red, Blue or Black Gold versions which offer you a choice of either bright colors or a modern take on the two-tone aesthetic.
We get asked for advice on buying watches all year long but we can’t answer everyone. If you still aren’t sure what watches should be on your shopping list this holiday season, let’s see what the aBlogtoWatch writing team has to say.
Those of us who coveted the limited edition, super-expensive Seiko Spacewalk watch have a new hope. Check out the Seiko Prospex Landmaster Alpinist SBDB007. The Spacewalk was beautiful and desirable, but extremely expensive at $28,000 for the consumer version.
Not to be outdone by Audemars Piguet and their claims to Formula 1 racing, Hublot has announced the F1 King Power Austin as a tribute to the United States Grand Prix which will be held Austin, Texas this November (of 2012). Hublot is also the official watch maker of the F1 series.
I recently discussed Urwerk’s brand new UR-210 watch with their interesting new “winding efficiency indicator” complication. The idea of the new complication was to tell you if you were winding the movement enough, or if you needed to be more active.
Linde Werdelin likes to call themselves a watch lab. The notion suggests an image of scientists sitting around in a white room dreaming up the next cool timepiece. Is this sexy sounding concept true? Yes actually, but Linde Werdelin is not alone in their experimentation. Most small brands have lab style product development processes which […]
This is a good example of why a hands-on article makes a lot more sense for curious watch lovers than relying on marketing images provided by the brands. Perhaps I should discuss what that is all about first. Excuse the tangent, but let me share something with you about the watch industry (and many others […]
This Blancpain X Fathoms watch is a piece I was really excited to get on my wrist (at long last!). Not only is it large and very complex, but Blancpain claimed that it was fitted with the most complicated rubber strap ever made for a watch. That alone made me curious about it. The X […]
Cartier recently wowed watch nerds with the rather impressive Cartier ID Two concept watch. Those with the budget to even theoretically purchase one are likely to be disappointed that the ID Two (like the ID One watch) will never be for sale. However, at the same time Cartier announced the ID Two, it also announced […]
This is a new model from Helson, the Titanium Gauge, and we have an exclusive first review . This one takes the cool look of their 3500m gauge, scales it down to a mere 1000m, and goes to a full titanium case for a more wearable design. Let’s take a look. Titanium case with helium escape […]
