With the introduction of the new Grand Seiko SBGP001, SBGP003, SBGP005 models, the brand introduces three new regular models. All of them are powered by the new Grand Seiko 9F85 quartz movement.

#TBT Omega Reference 2639

HomeTBT#TBT Omega Reference 2639 TBT#TBT Omega Reference 2639 Possibly the most overlooked vintage Omega out there by Balazs Ferenczi June 25, 2020 MIN READ#TBT Omega Reference 2639When I look at the vintage time-only Omega watches that I own, I see a pattern. Most of them are from the ’50s. They have a larger 35mm+ case size and a second’s sub-dial at 6. I don’t know why, but I’m just drawn to these timepieces like this excellent reference 2639(-14) with golden stardust dial and Dauphine hands.
Today’s subject is not my first 2639. Throughout the years I’ve been collecting watches, I came across a good few examples. Still, I have to say; this is the most beautiful example I have ever had. There is just something special about watches with black dials. Although I’m not a big fan of gold indexes and steel cases, it just works well with this 2639.
Reference 2639PostThe first thing we should do when looking at vintage watches is determining their ages. In today’s world, this is relatively..

A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Watch Gets A New Caliber

HomeWatch ReleasesA. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Watch Gets A New Caliber Watch ReleasesA. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Watch Gets A New Caliber The German maestro updates an oft-ignored classic by Rob Nudds June 25, 2020 MIN READA. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Watch Gets A New CaliberNew releases from A. Lange & Söhne are rare. When they do come along, they should be given the respect and attention they deserve. While the latest A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone is not a new model per se, it does feature a new caliber, which thoroughly bolsters this model’s presence in an already star-studded catalog.
The Lange 1 model first emerged in 1994 as the soon-to-be icon charged with establishing the brand as a major player. It was the piece that put the Lange family name back on the map. Since then, it has remained (in several forms) a mainstay in the Lange catalog.
Thanks to its defining role, the Lange 1’s memorable layout has remained largely unchanged since inception. Differen..

At last, some sort of normalcy has returned. Two auction houses will host watch auctions in Geneva before the end of June. Antiquorum and Phillips return to action. Meanwhile, Sotheby’s has opted for bi-weekly online auctions since March instead and Christie’s pushed back its sale for a second time to the end of July.

Hands-On With Louis Erard × Alain Silberstein Regulator Watch

HomeWatch ReviewHands-On With Louis Erard × Alain Silberstein Regulator Watch Watch ReviewHands-On With Louis Erard × Alain Silberstein Regulator Watch A playful beauty you have to take seriously by Tomas Rosputinsky June 25, 2020 MIN READHands-On With Louis Erard × Alain Silberstein Regulator WatchA collaboration of the highest order. It is so good, you can’t tell for sure who is helping who here. Contributions are equal. You can see both parties’ influence, but the end product feels different. It’s just better. Louis Erard × Alain Silberstein Le Régulateur combines best from both DNAs in a unique piece that doesn’t have competitors. Why?
I always respected and admired Louis Erard for its obsession with regulators. Since the brand’s rebirth in the early 2000s, watches with three separate hands became its primary focus. That was a shame, but it was understandable. I can imagine it needs a lot of persistence to go against the mainstream.

This week, we’ll discuss a unique blip on the Breitling radar with the Superocean Heritage Chronoworks. But first…
Last week, I did my best to take you back to the era of Boyz II Men with a look at the TAG Heuer Link chronograph. Sadly, it was the end of the road for this ornate sports watch as it fell to a crushing 68% crying shame loss. Let’s see if today’s watch can bring some of that Motown Philly magic because our Breitling Superocean Chronoworks happens to sit in a showcase near the ..

Jorg’s Top Five Iconic Watch Case Designs

HomeWatch TalkJorg’s Top Five Iconic Watch Case Designs Watch TalkJorg’s Top Five Iconic Watch Case Designs Where does different become accepted and where is it labeled as weird? by Jorg Weppelink June 24, 2020 MIN READJorg’s Top Five Iconic Watch Case DesignsEver since getting into the world of watches, I have always loved the discussions about watch design. The recurring topic is often progression. The arguments are as much about the lack thereof as they are about the ongoing quest for finding that new instant classic. Creating something genuinely new that meets with immediate acceptance seems to be the hardest thing there is. Especially when it comes to case design. But the excitement of seeing something novel is excellent.
The thing that has intrigued me most over the years is the shape of a watch case. It is often the most crucial element for an immediate “yes” or “no”. And a well-designed case can make a design become a proven classic. But the real appreciation of good design tak..
