Introducing The Montblanc 1858 Automatic 24H

HomeWatch TalkIntroducing The Montblanc 1858 Automatic 24H Watch TalkIntroducing The Montblanc 1858 Automatic 24H Montblanc has created a watch for the true explorer by Jorg Weppelink May 22, 2020 MIN READIntroducing The Montblanc 1858 Automatic 24HFor its new introductions for 2020, Montblanc puts a lot of focus on expanding the 1858 collection. The 1858 collection is inspired by the Minerva watches from the 1920s and 1930s. Tool watches that were created mostly for military use and mountain exploration. The all-new Montblanc 1858 Automatic 24H fits perfectly in the 1858 collection and adds its own dose of quirkiness.
The first thing that came to mind when I saw the Montblanc 1858 Automatic 24H was the thought of me flipping through the pages of the Grote Bosatlas as a young boy. It’s the Dutch equivalent of the British Oxford Atlas of the World and was first published in 1877. The Grote Bosatlas is a Dutch institution that still captures the heart of many young Dutch boys and girls. ..

Introducing: Gyre SeaCleaner

HomeNewsIntroducing: Gyre SeaCleaner NewsGyreIntroducing: Gyre SeaCleaner A watch made from fishing nets left in the sea by Gerard Nijenbrinks May 02, 2020 MIN READIntroducing: Gyre SeaCleanerMeanwhile, we all know what trouble disposed of plastic in our oceans causes. Much of this plastic – if not most – comes from lost and left behind fishing nets. The Gyre SeaCleaneris here to do something about that.
Gyre SeaCleaner – one watch at a time
The Gyre SeaCleaner is the world’s first sports watch made out of recycled ghost fishing nets from the Indian Ocean. The new brand focuses on raising awareness of the plastic soup problem and contributes to stopping the flow of plastic into the oceans and removing it. It works like this. Local fishers collect the fishing nets from the sea and deliver them to the recycler. They receive a fee for this, which means Gyre also contributes to the local economy. The nets are then cleaned and made into pellets for the watch case.

But it doesn’t mean everything is a distant memory. Last year saw Hermès release one of the best watches of the SIHH 2019 with the Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune. A little over a year later sees Hermès introducing five new Hermès Arceau L’Heure de la Lune models.
In a string of excellent releases last year at the SIHH, the Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune stood out. Despite its classic looks, it gave us something fresh and new, as you can read in Robert-Jan’s article. The concept, technique, and execution are all incredibly well thought out. The Arceau L’heure de la Lune showed that Hermès is..

Introducing The New Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Collection

HomeWatch ReleasesIntroducing The New Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Collection Watch ReleasesBreitlingIntroducing The New Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Collection The new-old Breitling Chronomat gets the Kern treatment by Ben Hodges April 16, 2020 MIN READIntroducing The New Breitling Chronomat B01 42 CollectionIntroducing the new Breitling Chronomat that takes design cues from the future-classic 80s watch. The new Chronomat continues a burgeoning trend of revisiting heritage models from Breitling’s esteemed back catalog.
Under the leadership of Georges Kern, we have seen the Ref 806 from 1959, and Ref 765 from 1953 get the revision treatment. Also, the recently announced Top-Time with bow-tie dial. But these come from the Willy Breitling era. For some collectors, Breitling didn’t begin until the 1980s.

Legendary FutureFirst, a little bit of history. Breitling, during the 70s, was in a bit of a rut. This was true for many Swiss brands, left reeling from the onset of the quartz crisis. Rolex..

Introducing The Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Double Rainbow Flying Tourbillon

Technically challenging and aesthetically daring, Parmigiani has ever since it was founded in 1996, shown a passion for combining both. This is especially true for the new Tonda 1950 Double Rainbow Flying Tourbillon. The watch is powered by caliber PF517, a movement that not only impresses with its complications but also with its finish. It has a height of 3.4mm, which is very thin, considering that it is not only equipped with a flying tourbillon but also features automatic winding. Creating such a movement in-house is something that Parmigiani only achieve because it is a fully vertically integrated manufacture. READ MORE

Introducing – The Revamped Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph (Reside Pics & Worth)

Ulysse Nardin is clearly in the middle of an import restructuring process and updating most of its emblematic watches. After new watches in the Marine collection, it was time for the Diver to get a fresher look. Following last year’s evolutions on the 3-hand models, the brand now comes up with three new yet instantly recognizable Diver Chronographs. Still imposing, still bold, still unmistakably Ulysse Nardin, the new chronos benefit from the latest design upgrade and jettison a lot of ballast in favour of a lighter, more streamlined and contemporary look.

The new 2019 Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph 44mm is available in two regular models – 18k rose gold/blue and titanium/black – as well as a limited edition “Hammerhead Shark” in titanium/blue
What’s new?
Last year, Ulysse Nardin unveiled its redesigned Diver Chronometer, a pared-down and more contemporary approach to its flamboyant Divers of the past. If you look back at this limited edition Monaco Yacht Show 2016 Diver Chronograph,..

Introducing – Oris Massive Crown Bronze Pointer Date 40mm

If you’re into watches, the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date should be no stranger to you. In a few years, this watch has become the signature element of the pilot-oriented Big Crown collection, with its nice vintage design and practical function. Still, this apparently simple watch has a lot to tell, as it is far from a new design, and second, it actually helped to make Oris what it is today. After multiple editions in steel or in bronze, Oris presents a new Big Crown Bronze Pointer Date 40mm, with its typically patinated case and now a matching bronze dial. Overview.

History of the Big Crown Pointer Date
Oris has a well-documented history in the world of aviation, having made its first pilot’s pocket watch in the early 1910s. This was followed by the company’s first pilot’s wristwatch in 1917, a watch that could only be adjusted when a button above the crown was activated – something featured on the 2017 re-edition. Eventually came the creation of the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date in 1938,..

Let’s start with the shop. For us, the shop is a (new) way to keep our magazine growing in the best possible way. Traditional advertising is slowly fading away, and we don’t want to have paid editorials like most other titles out there do. It is something I‘ve always said to myself and others: as soon as I have to write about watches that I don’t want to write about, I’d rather find myself doing something different. We wan..
