- TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Caliber 36 RS Caliper Chronograph Watch Review Posted by: maximilien Posted on: December 28, 2012
Hands-on review of the TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Caliber 36 RS Caliper Chronograph Watch
- Glam Rock SoBe Tachymeter Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: December 24, 2012
Last I checked "Glam Rock" was a musical genre from the 1970s that involved flamboyant hair, clothing, and performance styles to go with progressive rock and roll sounds. Basically think David Bowie.
- Marvin Malton Cushion M119 Watch Review Posted by: James Stacey Posted on: December 21, 2012
Marvin watches can trace their history back as far as 1850 and the Marvin name has been on the books at the Federal Institute of Intellectual Property in Berne, Switzerland since 1893. Marvin has an interesting and notable history which eventually saw the brand joining the MSR group (Manufactures d'Horlogeries Suisses Réunies) in the 70's before essentially disappearing altogether. Fast forward to 2002 and the Marvin name was relaunched after being purchased from MSR by Jean-Daniel Maye and his wife Cecile.
- MB&F HM5 Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: December 17, 2012
It was not until recently that I was able to even discuss the MB&F HM5 watch (which we debuted here). I encourage you to visit that post to learn more about the HM5's technical specs and see an aBlogtoWatch video presentation by MB&F discussing the watch. I probably won't repeat too much of the tech specs in this piece.
- Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: December 10, 2012
The Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT was not a timepiece I immediately sat down and wrote a review on - as is often the case with the watches I review. I mean, with at least one hands-on watch review a week, I don't exactly have a lot of time on aBlogtoWatch to delay these things.
- CT Scuderia Corsa Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: December 3, 2012
What we don't suffer from in any short supply are modern wrist watches made to look like vintage sport watches. What we have a lot less of are modern watches meant to look like sport stopwatches. I don't really get why that is. Most serious sport or event timers use dedicated stopwatches to measure time versus a watch on their wrist.
- SevenFriday Watch Review Posted by: WatchAnish Posted on: November 30, 2012
A couple of months ago I received a press release via email. Whilst most communications like this are filed away not to be seen again by me, I really took notice of one in particular from SevenFriday. The release text wasn't particularly exciting, but the images showed a range of watches that looked very appealing.
- Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: November 26, 2012
In the United States Omega is to a very large degree the "Seamaster" and "Speedmaster" watch brand. Those two timepiece families mostly dominate the image we think of when someone mentions Omega. Let's think about some of the more noteworthy things Omega is known for.
- Breitling Navitimer 01 Watch Review Posted by: maximilien Posted on: November 23, 2012
The Breitling Navitimer 01 is the first Navitimer with the new in-house Breitling B01 movement. The Navitimer is maybe one of a handful of original classic aviator watch designs and Breitling can claim that it's the only wristwatch chronograph in continuous production for more than 50 years. With the B01 movement, Breitling has recently extended the guarantee of the Navitimer 01 to five years from the typical industry standard of two years.
- Devon Tread 1 Steampunk Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: November 19, 2012
2012 sees the release of the special limited edition "Steampunk" version of the Tread 1, and I am happy to offer this exclusive review and first ever hands-on look at it. It is Devon's answer to an artsier version of a mechanical art watch, and it is something which I am happy they decided to make.
- Bell & Ross WW1-90-S Review Posted by: Paul Hubbard Posted on: November 16, 2012
This is the Bell & Ross WW1-90-S, a recent model inspired by WW1-era pocketwatch conversions, where the lugs were loops of wire soldered onto the case.
- Girard-Perregaux 1966 Chronograph 42MM Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: November 12, 2012
Girard-Perregaux is a solid name in high-end watch making. They produce their own movements in Switzerland, that are even used as base movements for other brands (even MB&F). Their movements are pretty spot on, but what does that mean in a world where it takes a nice movement and nice design to sell an expensive watch?
- IWC Big Pilot Top Gun Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: November 5, 2012
IWC fan boys (of which there are many) have a serious love affair with the Big Pilot watch family - and it is easy to see why with its large masculine looks and action-ready stance. For review I have checked out one of the new Big Pilot pieces that comes in an all ceramic case and is part of the Top Gun collection.
- Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: October 29, 2012
The Grande Seconde dial made the modern Jaquet Droz watch brand famous. Taken from an interesting 18th century pocket watch with a lovely figure eight style dial, the Grande Seconde wrist watch dial was not only visually appealing, but also resonated well with the Chinese consumer who has a penchant for the number "8."
- Tissot SeaStar 1000 Chronograph Valjoux Limited Edition Watch Review Posted by: Ariel Adams Posted on: October 22, 2012
If you are in the market for a new mechanical Tissot dive watch then this is the model you probably want. Tissot released this limited edition model as a higher-end version of the standard SeaStar 1000 Chronograph (which we covered here).
