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.

I’m not entirely sure how comfortable I am with acknowledging that, but in hindsight I’m sure it must be true. I hadn’t realized how easy I’d had it until I started to analyze the position of the (three) Nezumi Voiture watches in my collection. At last. I’ve found my kindred spirit…
Everybody has things in their lives that don’t make much sense when stacked next to the rest of one’s existence. These little erraticisms make us interesting. They are very often the best bits of us. The weird streaks of madness that make our otherwise beige existences pop with color. From outside the industry looking in, it would be understandable to suggest that an obsession with watches was my..

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..
