#SpeedyTuesday — Top-5 Limited Edition Omega Speedmaster Watches

HomeSpeedy Tuesday#SpeedyTuesday — Top-5 Limited Edition Omega Speedmaster Watches Speedy Tuesday#SpeedyTuesday — Top-5 Limited Edition Omega Speedmaster Watches Gerard's Top-5 Limited Editions Speedies by Gerard Nijenbrinks June 23, 2020 MIN READ#SpeedyTuesday — Top-5 Limited Edition Omega Speedmaster WatchesLimited editions are not to everyone’s taste. Sometimes, the sheer volume of limiteds can be overwhelming. With the #SpeedyTuesday editions we’ve contributed to that as well. While limited editions may be more common these days, that’s nothing new. Let’s have a closer look at my Top-5 of earlier NASA/Apollo dedicated Limited Edition Omega Speedmaster models.
In 1969, Omega introduced a numbered series of 18k yellow gold Speedmaster Professional watches. We did a review of that model here. These were more or less Limited Editions avant la lettre. They weren’t limited, but they were sequentially numbered — we learned that only 1,014 pieces were made, of which #1 was offered to ..

Oris Hölstein Limited Edition Watch For 2020

HomeWatch ReleasesOris Hölstein Limited Edition Watch For 2020 Watch ReleasesOris Hölstein Limited Edition Watch For 2020 Happy birthday Oris! by Andreas Ahrens June 15, 2020 MIN READOris Hölstein Limited Edition Watch For 2020Oris celebrates its 116th birthday by dedicating an extraordinary full-bronze timepiece to its hometown
On June 1st, 1904, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian founded Oris in the village Hölstein at precisely the place where the brand still is located today. They borrowed the brand’s name from a local creek — The Oris.
Hölstein, lying 25 kilometers south of Basel and hence far away from the center of the Swiss watch industry, knows a thing or two about solitude. It is not only geographically separated from the rest of the industry, but it is also independent. Its location has become an expression of Oris’s individuality and independence. Oris plans on highlighting this special bond with a series of limited edition pieces named in honor of Hölstein. Yes, that’s righ..

Louis Erard La Sportive Limited Edition Bronze Watch

HomeHands-OnLouis Erard La Sportive Limited Edition Bronze Watch Hands-OnLouis Erard La Sportive Limited Edition Bronze Watch An inviting colorway makes for an interesting aesthetic on the wrist by Rob Nudds June 15, 2020 MIN READLouis Erard La Sportive Limited Edition Bronze WatchBrown is a contentious color when it comes to luxury watchmaking. A strap staple, moving the color to the dial has had some remarkably successful runs in the past, but it isn’t as easy as classics like the Rolex “Root Beer” watches of old made it look. Here, Louis Erard employs a warm shade on the dial of its La Sportive Limited Edition Bronze Watch. The result? Find out below…
Whether bronze is “here to stay” or not, isn’t really the point. The point is that the “trend” has, by now, hung around long enough to have carved itself a definite niche in the industry. Plenty of people were skeptical of its longevity. Those voices are quieter now. And for good reason. Brands are becoming more and more adept at findi..

HomeHands-OnThe Seiko Presage Porco Rosso SNR047 Is A Proper Limited Edition Hands-OnThe Seiko Presage Porco Rosso SNR047 Is A Proper Limited Edition An homage to the Porco Rosso film for the true collector by Jorg Weppelink June 10, 2020 MIN READThe Seiko Presage Porco Rosso SNR047 Is A Proper Limited EditionIt is not too often at Fratello that we dive into the world of Japanese anime. However, it is a phenomenon that attracts many fans and enthusiasts worldwide. In partnership with Studio Ghibli, Seiko honors one of the most legendary animated movies ever made. Seiko honors the 1992 animated film Porco Rosso with a set of two limited edition watches. Both watches bring the story of Porco Rosso to life perfectly and are therefore pieces for the real collectors. In the first of two reviews, we go hands-on with the Seiko Presage SNR047 “Porco Rosso”.
We have already seen quite a few good releases from Seiko in 2020. The number of watches the brand has shared is impressive. A large numbe..

SPB171 Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Dial Limited Edition Watch

HomeWatch ReleasesSPB171 Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Dial Limited Edition Watch Watch ReleasesSPB171 Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Dial Limited Edition Watch The moon on the water… by Rob Nudds June 09, 2020 MIN READSPB171 Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Dial Limited Edition WatchIn the olden days, long before Covid-19 swept the globe leaving a trail of heartbreak and disruption in its wake, I used to have friends. Really. Well, at least, I knew people who would willingly spend time with me if there was beer involved. One of the places we — the founding members of @RedBarMcr — used to meet to discuss our next group meetings was The Moon Under Water on Deansgate. In the egocentric fantasy land I like to occupy as often as possible, Seiko has therefore released the SPB171 to commemorate one of the former watering holes frequented by my friends and me. That is, of course, nonsense. But the watch is anything but…
I’ve never been to Japan. As soon as lockdown is over, I’d like to change t..

HomeWatch ReleasesNOMOS Glashütte × Ace Jewelers Tangente 38 Amsterdam Limited Edition Watch Watch ReleasesNomosNOMOS Glashütte × Ace Jewelers Tangente 38 Amsterdam Limited Edition Watch The fourth collaboration between the German watchmaker and Dutch retailer by Rob Nudds May 23, 2020 MIN READNOMOS Glashütte × Ace Jewelers Tangente 38 Amsterdam Limited Edition WatchThe release of the NOMOS Glashütte × Ace Jewelers Tangente 38 Amsterdam Limited Edition Watch marks the fourth time the Saxon manufacture has collaborated with Amsterdam’s most visible and active retailer. And what can I say? They’ve hit the mark again.
I was involved with the first NOMOS/Ace limited edition way back in 2017. Back then, we celebrated 100 years of De Stijl with a 38mm Orion. I still wear mine (16/100) with pride. In fact, I was so proud of that project I didn’t think I would ever be able to distance myself from it enough to objectively analyze any future editions in the Ace × NOMOS line.

But here we are. It..

HomeWatch ReleasesOmega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition Watch ReleasesOmegaOmega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition Celebrating its role as official timekeeper by Robert-Jan Broer May 20, 2020 MIN READOmega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited EditionI am not the experienced sailor that our editor Gerard is, but steering one of the racing boats in 2018 is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

It was a home game for us when the Volvo Ocean Race was held in Scheveningen in The Netherlands. Omega had a little surprise for us, that we could join one of the boats entering the harbor of Scheveningen. I often feel lucky that I am doing this job at Fratello. It makes it possible to visit places and do things I would otherwise never have done.

America’s Cup Limited EditionAround 20 years ago, I just started watch collecting. I remember Omega releasing their special Seamaster 300M America’s Cup, with white gold bezel. I still ha..

HomeWatch ReleasesNew Release: Breitling Superocean ’57 Limited Edition II Watch ReleasesBreitlingNew Release: Breitling Superocean ’57 Limited Edition II Breitling Moves Quickly to Support Frontline Healthcare Charities by Michael Stockton May 19, 2020 MIN READNew Release: Breitling Superocean ’57 Limited Edition IIIf you missed your chance at the most recent Breitling Superocean ’57 Limited Edition, you now have a chance at a slightly different follow-up model. Significantly, proceeds will aid charities that support frontline healthcare workers in the battle against COVID-19.
Just over a month ago, we shared news of Breitling‘s latest capsule collection. The Superocean Heritage ’57 was announced during a video stream led by Georges Kern. While the watch could be considered as a somewhat niche offering, I threw my money behind it within a couple of hours of its release. After all, this watch recalls one of my all-time favorite vintage watches while adding some modern twists such as si..
