HomeHands-OnHands-On Review With The Grand Seiko SBGW257 And SBGW259 Watches Hands-OnHands-On Review With The Grand Seiko SBGW257 And SBGW259 Watches A couple of sleeper hits from the Japanese giant by Rob Nudds July 01, 2020 MIN READHands-On Review With The Grand Seiko SBGW257 And SBGW259 WatchesI never get tired of getting new watches in hand. Even after thousands of timepieces have passed through my possession, I remain surprised at how surprised I am still able to be. The more watches I encounter, the more I must remind myself to keep an open mind and to get them on the wrist. If I’d ignored that sage advice, I might still be sleeping on the Grand Seiko SBGW257 and SBGW259.
The Grand Seiko SBGW257 and SBGW259 watches would not have been watches I’d have gravitated to in the boutique. “Why not?” I hear you cry. “Do you not think they’re beautiful?” Well, yes, actually, I do think they’re beautiful. In fact, I would go as far as to say that their beauty far outstrips almost anything ..

Perhaps, when luck is on your side, you might run into one for that kind of money. But, in general, I will say that those days are behind us.
In this article, I want to share 5 Omega Speedmaster watches that can be had for under $3000USD. These are the Speedmaster models I would (and in some cases I did) purchase with a budget of $3K. Perhaps not the best, wildest, coolest, or most popular references, but I happen to find them interesting Speedmaster watches.
5 Speedmaster Watches Under $3000I went with $3000USD, as this used to be the budget for a nice pre-owned Moonwatch. I’ve have picked up Speedmaster watches for mu..

TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Montreal Limited EditionOur first entry in this variety edition comes from TAG Heuer. I got a bit excited when the press release came in and I saw a 1972 Montreal chronograph. Well, it turns out that we’re getting a 39mm Carrera with the familiar “Glassbox” construction in the guise of a Montreal. This 1,000-piece limited edition features blue, yellow, and red highlights on its dial and a blue leather alligator strap. The in-house Calibre 02 automatic powers the three-register chronograph. The €6,400 watch will begin hitting boutiques and online in July. I woul..
HomeYou Asked UsYou Asked Us: Can Watches Be Recycled? You Asked UsYou Asked Us: Can Watches Be Recycled? The circle of life… by Rob Nudds June 27, 2020 MIN READYou Asked Us: Can Watches Be Recycled?Believe it or not, this one has hit our inbox on several occasions. With more and more people tuning-in to the challenges facing our environment today (and the potential cataclysm awaiting humanity in the not-so-distant future) it is perhaps unsurprising. Sustainability is key. The responsible disposal of waste has never been more important to so many people. Reducing consumption by reusing old products is a proactive hobby sweeping the globe. And so that’s probably why you asked us, “Can watches be recycled?”
Well, the simple answer is yes, they could be. Pretty much every watch component is either recyclable or “upcyclable” in some way. It is not that common for watches to be recycled, however, as the majority of the components, once worn out, do not have much residual value. This is di..
HomePreowned PicksPre-Owned Picks — Discontinued Oris Watches Preowned PicksPre-Owned Picks — Discontinued Oris Watches A vintage selection from Oris for week 26 by Ben Hodges June 26, 2020 MIN READPre-Owned Picks — Discontinued Oris WatchesThis week, I am checking out some intriguing watches from Hölstein’s premier independent. Yes, I am talking about the plucky soloist Oris. In its heyday, Oris was outputting up to 1.2million watches and clocks per year. The onset of the low-cost and reliable quartz timepieces from Japan in the ‘70s and ‘80s, however, took a toll on the brand.
The choice was either to follow the herd and produce quartz with a Swiss twist or, like so many Swiss watch-makers, fold and fade into obscurity. For a time, Oris did produce a range of quartz pieces. But fortunately, a management buyout in 1982 changed the fate of Oris. The brand became Oris SA and swore never to make a quartz-operated wristwatch.
Oris Diver Sixty-Five released in 2015

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 ..

Corum LAB 02First up this week is the Corum LAB 02. If you want more skeleton, this just might be your watch! Just remember to bring at least CHF 180,000 because that’s where life with this manual wind flying tourbillon (cal CO 300) begins. The massive 45mm case is available in several shades of gold and with or without diamonds. Corum calls out 10 of each style, but they will also allow you to choose colorful gems and other modifications. A power reserve and date function also show on this piece. When I think of older Corum, I think of the Golden ..
