Let’s see if you’ll award the royal crown to the Rolex Air-King. But first…
Last week, I tried to present value to you in the form of a rare Breitling Superocean Chronoworks. It turns out that this rarity was caused by its initial price of nearly €40K! Even a reduction down to roughly €15,000 wasn’t enough to save this science experiment as it fell to a thundering 73% Crying Shame loss. That Breitling was once the brand’s veritable head of state, but was quickly deposed. Now let’s focus on a monarch with a far longer reign, the Rolex Air-King.

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 ..

Last week, I showed you the Glashütte Original Senator Navigator. Even though that watch used a design heavily inspired by WW2 bomber watches, you felt it was “Original” enough to land a 58% Wrist Game win. For the proponents, I agree with you — great watch! This week’s subject won’t take its inspiration from anything nearly that old, but the TAG Heuer Link Chronograph has certainly inspired me to travel back in time. Let’s go for a..

Last week, I showed you a freshly serviced Omega Speedmaster Professional X-33. It turns out that a service, boxes and papers, and a super geeky Speedy are a recipe for success. As such, the X-33 returned to orbit with a healthy 58% Wrist Game win. Not bad for a quartz watch, is it? Well, today, we take to the air in lieu of space with the Glashütte Original Senator Navigator.

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.

I’m on a roll. Perhaps my roll is down the hill of despair, but I’ve now featured two losers in a row. Last week’s Patek Philippe 5524G Calatrava suffered a tight but ultimately decisive 52% Crying Shame loss. While I quietly applaud the Patek entrée into more adventurous realms, most of you do not and, therefore, it appears that a Brioni suit still trumps a Givenchy tee (as if…). Moving on, let’s see if today’s Panerai Submersible w..

Last week, I showed you what has to be the most polarizing Speedmaster Limited Edition to date with the Apollo XVII 40th Anniversary model. Polarizing means that you like it or not. Or, in the case of sunglasses, it means you can’t see sh*t on your heads-up display. And folks, you did not see or like this watch. This Speedy was routed in an 85% Crying Shame loss.

Last week, I brought something bright and bulbous with the Chronoswiss Timemaster. It turns out that a wrist lantern and massive onion-shaped protuberance for a crown do not a winner make. The Chronoswiss got pummeled on the way to a 59% Crying Shame loss. That’s a real shame because I find it rather unique. Today’s pick is far more common and I know some miesepieters will whine about yet another Rolex.
