HomeWatch ReviewCzapek Antarctique Terre Adélie Secret Alloy Watch Is A Game-Changer Watch ReviewCzapek Antarctique Terre Adélie Secret Alloy Watch Is A Game-Changer The established order of luxury steel sports watches is under threat… by Rob Nudds July 01, 2020 MIN READCzapek Antarctique Terre Adélie Secret Alloy Watch Is A Game-ChangerI woke up one morning, about two weeks ago, to a press release from Czapek. That’s normally a good way to start the day. But what I found within that press release — news of the Czapek Antarctique Terre Adélie Secret Alloy automatic watch hitting the market — was enough to put a spring in my step for the next week. Obviously, I had to get it on my wrist as soon as possible.
Oh. My. Goodness. It has finally happened. Czapek & Cie, a brand I have followed ardently since its reestablishment in 2011, has finally made a watch that I don’t just admire, but actively want. The Czapek Antarctique is not just cool; it is a contender to a throne that has been wa..

The movie is Tenet, and the watch is the Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO.
Many of us remember Agent Jay and Kay in the 1997 sci-fi comedy Men In Black (played by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones) sporting the quirky/futuristic-looking Hamilton Ventura watches. Who can blame them? Even Elvis loved the Ventura, after all. Or how can we forget the most popular Hamilton of recent years, the Murph? This very model took its name from one of the main ..

HomeWatch ReviewExclusive Hands-On With New Yema Watch Superman 63 Watch ReviewExclusive Hands-On With New Yema Watch Superman 63 Another hard to resist vintage inspired release by Tomas Rosputinsky June 29, 2020 MIN READExclusive Hands-On With New Yema Watch Superman 63When you say Superman, most of the population see handsome Clark Kent dashing to the bathroom to don his cape. When I hear it, I see a vintage divers‘ watch by French brand Yema. Today, Yema hits us with a re-edition of the 1963 OG with the shiny bakelite-like bezel. Enjoy it with us in an exclusive hands-on review.
Months ago, I heard from the Yema communications team that a vintage-inspired skin diver was in the works. I instantly thought about early Yema Superman watches with framed lumed indexes big enough to drown in. If you don’t remember them well enough, you can read Mike’s piece about the LeJour-branded Yema Superman 87062 for the US market. His piece is quite unique as it came with an original leaflet, which p..

A Record-Breaking Weekend At The Geneva Watch Auctions

This weekend in Geneva, the traditional watch auctions took place. Things were different than before, as many Covid-19 precautions were still in place. Also, a lot of collectors and dealers could not travel to the auctions themselves due to various travel restrictions. This also meant that they could not examine the watches themselves before the sale, although various digital initiatives tried to give them as much information as possible. That made it that the auctions could definitely be seen as a test on how the outbreak of Covid-19 would impact the vintage watch market. READ MORE

I shouldn’t be writing this. But social distancing measures on trains mean my travel partner is sitting a row in front of me and more concerned with the bag of cherries we stashed for the journey than my company. And, more to the point, this is the release I’ve been building up to all year. Today, the Laventure Transatlantique GMT hits the shelves. Move quickly. With just 100 pieces available, I don’t think this one will hang around for long…
I am the proud owner of the first two Laventure watches. I have the Marine (with a green dial), and the Sous-Marine (with a bronze case and a black dial). Had a blue or brown dial been included in the Transatlantique’s debut I would own one..

It is the catchphrase Oris has chosen for their new series of Hölstein Edition watches. Like many of you, I love 007, so a good Bond reference is always welcome. But what does it stand for? Well, Oris shows us with a new series of limited edition watches. The first in the series is the visually stunning Oris Hölstein Edition 2020. It’s an all-bronze version of the well-known Oris Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph. The moment I took the watch out of the box, I thought: “Now this is something I will enjoy!”.

Before I get into the details of the watch, I would like to get back to “From Hölstein w..

Audric SeaBorne 500 M Dive Watch Prototype Review

HomeWatch ReviewAudric SeaBorne 500 M Dive Watch Prototype Review Watch ReviewAudric SeaBorne 500 M Dive Watch Prototype Review A task that raised some interesting questions… by Rob Nudds June 26, 2020 MIN READAudric SeaBorne 500 M Dive Watch Prototype ReviewWorking as a watch journalist is obviously a massive privilege. It’s something I am reminded of in myriad ways on a daily basis. Probably the clearest example of this privilege is being privy to new releases before they hit the market. In many cases, this means having the chance to see, wear, and review groundbreaking releases from some of the most prestigious brands in the world. At the other end of the scale, however, is the opportunity to see fledgling brands come to life. We are frequently sent watches for review from makers hoping to catapult their efforts into the limelight. Recently, I spent a few days with the new Audric SeaBorne 500 M. The model I received for review, however, was a prototype, which made for an interesti..

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..
