HomeWrist Game or Crying ShameWrist Game Or Crying Shame: Omega Speedmaster X-33 Wrist Game or Crying ShameWrist Game Or Crying Shame: Omega Speedmaster X-33 Are you ready to blast off for €2,109? by Michael Stockton June 03, 2020 MIN READWrist Game Or Crying Shame: Omega Speedmaster X-33Welcome back to Wrist Game or Crying Shame, the weekly all systems go or all systems NO serial. This time around, we go digital with the Omega Speedmaster X-33. But first…
Last week, I brought the metal with a first generation Panerai Luminor Submersible. And while our comments section showed stark divide, the big clunker took home a more than respectable 55% Wrist Game win. With today’s Omega Speedmaster X-33, we’ll also look at a first generation model. This happens to be a timely one as well as we’ll soon see.

The Astronaut’s choiceThis past Saturday night, my wife and I joined a friend at a restaurant — that’s allowed here in Germany — and we streamed the SpaceX launch. It was absolutely fantastic..

Revolution × The Rake Covid-19 Solidarity Auction

HomeIndustry NewsRevolution × The Rake Covid-19 Solidarity Auction Industry NewsRevolution × The Rake Covid-19 Solidarity Auction A charity auction of prototype and unique watches by Robert-Jan Broer June 03, 2020 MIN READRevolution × The Rake Covid-19 Solidarity AuctionOur friends over at Revolution and The Rake will be holding a charity auction in the week of June 15th. The proceeds of the auction will go to the countries affected the most.
Covid19 has taken over our lives, at least for most of us. It has affected a lot of us. Whether that’s by illness or loss, or decline in income, this virus has taken a lot away from us. I did not see my parents for the last four months — but I consider myself lucky that I at least still have them in good health — and our business is definitely affected by the lockdown. For a lot of people, things are a lot worse though. And for those people, Revolution and The Rake are trying to raise funds to offer some help.

Undone — King Of Collaborations

HomeWatch TalkUndone — King Of Collaborations Watch TalkUndone — King Of Collaborations Blockbusters and highly respected creators. by Gerard Nijenbrinks June 03, 2020 MIN READUndone — King Of CollaborationsUndone likes to present itself as one of the world’s major custom-watch labels. According to the brand, the team tries to help you find a personalized watch that truly expresses your individuality and taste.
That’s all well and good. However, I don’t consider myself a better designer than people who made it their profession. As a result, I’m not such a fan of custom-made watches by non-professionals. What I do like, however, is that Undone used its ability to customize watches for the production of some excellent collaborations. Therefore, for me, Undone became the King of Collaborations!
Undone — King of CollabsEstablished in just 2014, Undone almost immediately started to collaborate with well-known and respected brands, artists, designers, and comic figures. Let’s shed some light..

Speedy Tuesday — Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker “Gen 3”

HomeSpeedy TuesdaySpeedy Tuesday — Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker “Gen 3” Speedy TuesdaySpeedy Tuesday — Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker “Gen 3” The Skywalker and earlier generations by Paul Dezentjé June 02, 2020 MIN READSpeedy Tuesday — Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker “Gen 3”Some people are wondering why the SpaceX crew isn’t wearing the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker. It’s a fair question. Not only is the X-33 Skywalker the latest digital Omega Speedmaster, but it was also designed with exactly this kind of mission in mind. So what gives?
It all comes down to the launch site’s location. Had this flight been launched from Russian soil, Roscomos would have provided the crew with an Omega Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker and a Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. The same courtesy is afforded everyone launching from Russia. Astronauts from NASA or ESA and Cosmonauts from Roscosmos itself would all receive the same treatment. But NASA prefers the tried and tested Speedmaster X-33 Gen 2. And that’s a prett..

HomeWatch TalkCasio G-Shock, Square, or Third Eye? Which Watch Is For You? Watch TalkCasio G-Shock, Square, or Third Eye? Which Watch Is For You? It's voting time! Make your favorite G-Shock style heard! by Gerard Nijenbrinks June 02, 2020 MIN READCasio G-Shock, Square, or Third Eye? Which Watch Is For You? Square Third EyeConsidering a G-Shock with conventional looks and functionality? What would be your preferred style? Square or rounded?
From previous articles, you might have learned that the original DW-5000C-1A G-Shock, presented in 1983, had a more or less squared case design. After that, in 1987, the first round-cased G-Shock model, the DW-5700C, was released. However, it was already 1995 before another truly iconic design would see the light — the DW-6900-1V nicked the Third Eye.

Hands-On With The Norqain Freedom 60 Chronograph

HomeIn-DepthHands-On With The Norqain Freedom 60 Chronograph In-DepthWatch ReviewHands-On With The Norqain Freedom 60 Chronograph Familiar good looks from a new kid on the block by Jorg Weppelink June 02, 2020 MIN READHands-On With The Norqain Freedom 60 ChronographEver since I first laid eyes on the Norqain Freedom 60 Chronograph, I struck me as exactly what a retro-inspired chronograph watch should look like. And after wearing it for some time, I must admit it ticks a lot of boxes. But is it also exciting enough to set itself apart from competitors? Or does it feel all too familiar? After a week of wearing the Freedom 60 Chronograph, it’s time to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
Let me start by saying that the Norqain name is quickly picking up in recognition. Most watch enthusiasts have heard of the brand by now. But, for some reason, I struggled to commit the name to memory. I read the stories and knew about the brand, but the name just didn’t stick in my brain. Don’t ask me ..
