Panerai Celebrates 70 Years Of The Luminor With Exciting New Models

What started 70 years ago as an extraordinary watch for elite forces of the Italian navy during WWII has become one of the most recognizable and popular sports watches. The Panerai Luminor paved the way for oversized watches and has earned its position as an icon. However, Panerai never allowed the Luminor rest on its laurels, but instead used it as their preferred platform to push the envelope, either with complicated movements or with innovative materials. The latter is also what they used for the three special models of the Luminor that Panerai created to celebrate its 70th anniversary. READ MORE

Citizen Of Japan Aims For Space As It Celebrates 50 Years Of Industry-Leading Titanium Watches

Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser
In 1970, just one year after NASA’s Apollo 11 mission to the moon, Citizen watches of Japan introduced the world’s first consumer wristwatch produced from titanium.

As Citizen celebrates 50 years of producing titanium timepieces, the conglomerated company also suggests that its Super Titanium material has urgent applications in industries outside of wristwatches — namely private rocket and space shuttle companies. (More on Citizen’s space aspirations below.) First, a brief look at highlights along the chronology of Citizen’s long investment into the study and improvement of titanium wrist watch technology.

Moritz Grossmann Super Bowl Watch Celebrates Kansas City Chiefs’ Victory

HomeWatch TalkMoritz Grossmann Super Bowl Watch Celebrates Kansas City Chiefs’ Victory Watch TalkMoritz GrossmannMoritz Grossmann Super Bowl Watch Celebrates Kansas City Chiefs’ Victory Another niche entry in the MG catalog marks the result of the Big Game by Rob NuddsFebruary 04, 2020 MIN READMoritz Grossmann Super Bowl Watch Celebrates Kansas City Chiefs’ VictoryI’ve been a fan of the movements produced by Moritz Grossmann for a long time. Longer than that, however, I’ve been a fan of the NFL. As the German manufacture marks another Super Bowl with yet another unique piece, I ask myself the obvious question: Do I want it?
Last year I had the pleasure of sitting down with Moritz Grossmann CEO Christine Hutter. Invariably, I turned the subject of our conversation towards the spate of, as I would term it, “odd” limited and unique editions being turned out by the brand. My question was personally motivated by last year’s Super Bowl watch.
That model commemorated the New England Patriots ..

Bell & Ross Celebrates Its Top Three Watches Of 2019

Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser
Bell & Ross, the brand that made cockpit instrumentation the coolest thing in watch wear, had a great year in 2019. In September, it launched the wildly successful BR 05 series, an evolution of its iconic BR03 model but with a more urban interpretation of the instrumentation aesthetic. This was followed in October with a stunning blue-dialed version of the popular bronze BR 03 Diver, which was introduced exclusively to the Americas.

The BR 05 is one of the dressiest models in the Bell & Ross oeuvre. The idea behind the design was to move from the professional world of the extreme to the urban landscape — transitioning from the off-road to the in-road. The new design retains an element of the dashboard aesthetic, with a case in round and square forms, the basic geometric shapes of the Bell & Ross identity. On the BR 05, however, the dial is inset more flush with the case rather than raised slightly, in the cockpit style, resulting..

Grand Seiko Celebrates 60th Anniversary With Four New Limited Edition Models

Beyond just expanding Seiko’s offerings into the realm of luxury watchmaking, since 1960 Grand Seiko has pushed the bounds of horology with innovative new technologies and design techniques. To celebrate 60 years of the brand, Grand Seiko has created four new limited-edition timepieces that each highlight a different aspect of the brand’s ethos — these will be released from February to April of this year.

TAG Heuer Carrera Silver Limited Edition Celebrates 160 Years Of The Iconic Timepiece

TAG Heuer is celebrating its 160 years of fine watchmaking history with the release of the new TAG Heuer Carrera Silver Limited Edition.
The limited edition only has 1,860 pieces, as a nod to the very year the company was founded by Edouard Heuer in Saint-Imier, Switzerland.
The new design revives the 1960s Tag Heuer Carrera line, featuring “One of 1860″ and “LIMITED EDITION” engraved on the case-back of every watch in the collection, and powered by 21st-century innovation in watchmaking.

In 1962, then-CEO Jack Heuer heard of the South American race, the Carrera Panamericana, and knew “Carrera” (Spanish for “road”, “race”, “career” and “course”) was the perfect name for a new timepiece, which was debuted in 1964. The Heuer Carrera is a perpetual presence on the wrist of drivers around the world. The silver-dial model (known by horologists as the “2447S”) is being re-introduced in the new edition with new updates.

The new Carrera Silver Limited Edtion has its predecessor’s dial an..
