NOMOS Celebrates 175 Years of Glashütte Watchmaking With Three Colorful New Automatic Clubs

Sponsored post presented on aBlogtoWatch by advertiser
For most brands, anniversaries tend to be an opportunity to release a precious metal version of a popular watch, a rare complication, or an extremely limited (and often expensive) watch, effectively appealing to only the most dedicated collectors — or those with the deepest pockets. NOMOS has taken the exact opposite approach in celebrating 175 years of watchmaking in Glashütte. In late 2020, the German brand released three new models in their flagship Lambda watch. Previously only available in precious metal, the anniversary editions of this elegant, minimal dress watch come in stainless steel at a much more palatable price. For their latest limited edition celebrating Glashütte’s dodransbicentennial, NOMOS brings back their entry-level automatic Club in three gorgeous new colorways – onyx, navy, and olive green.

Marathon Watch Company has been making military watches for 80 years. The Toronto-based company has been on the aBlogtoWatch radar for a few years now, and our team visited its headquarters in Canada, as well as its wholly-owned watchmaking facility in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland to produce the film below.

Marathon knows what they are doing, and, as a result, has been applying their particular style of making watches for 80 years now.
Today, Marathon can claim that they are the last official military supplier of military watches to several important countries, including the U.S., UK, and Canada. Until the early 2000s, anyone who had a Marathon military watch received one while “in the service.” It was only more recently t..

Panerai Celebrates 70 Years Of The Luminor With Exciting New Models

What started 70 years ago as an extraordinary watch for elite forces of the Italian navy during WWII has become one of the most recognizable and popular sports watches. The Panerai Luminor paved the way for oversized watches and has earned its position as an icon. However, Panerai never allowed the Luminor rest on its laurels, but instead used it as their preferred platform to push the envelope, either with complicated movements or with innovative materials. The latter is also what they used for the three special models of the Luminor that Panerai created to celebrate its 70th anniversary. READ MORE

Having a watch from your year of birth is something to which many enthusiasts aspire.
In my opinion, the best thing is when your parents bought one in your birth year and looked after it for you. But I guess not everyone is so lucky (I wasn’t). then you will need to find your own watch. This does mean that you can purchase the watch you really fancy, of course.
This article is about my own quest for a birth year watch. One that took me about 15 years to find the perfect piece.
Year of Birth 145.022-76Ever since I have been bitten by the Speedmaster bug, it was my goal to find a reference from my year of birth (1977). Already in 2003, I s..

55 Years Of Seiko Prospex Excellence: Four New Takes On The Classics

The name Prospex carries a significant amount of gravitas in the watch community. It literally means Pro Specs or Professional Specifications. Seiko used this moniker to delineate watches in its catalog that were meant to do a job or meant to perform in the harshest conditions. Five-and-a-half decades ago, Seiko released Japan’s first dive watch, the 6217-8001 (62MAS). It proved itself by accompanying the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition while they were drilling ice cores from the Antarctic. The 62MAS paved the way for more diving watches to come from Seiko. For the 55th anniversary of this accomplishment, Seiko has decided to release three new and updated versions of its pivotal dive watches.

Each of these three models will be released in limited editions of 1100 pieces. All three are modernizations of pivotal Prospex dive watches from the 1960s and 1970s, starting with the 39.9mm SLA037, which commemorates the 62MAS, and followed by the 44.8mm SLA039 based on the 1968 Hi-Beat..

Citizen Of Japan Aims For Space As It Celebrates 50 Years Of Industry-Leading Titanium Watches

Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser
In 1970, just one year after NASA’s Apollo 11 mission to the moon, Citizen watches of Japan introduced the world’s first consumer wristwatch produced from titanium. Since then, the renowned timepiece and instrument maker has been an innovator in the field of not only designing robust and lightweight titanium metal watches but also in the manufacture and production of precision titanium components.
As Citizen celebrates 50 years of producing titanium timepieces, the conglomerated company also suggests that its Super Titanium material has urgent applications in industries outside of wristwatches — namely private rocket and space shuttle companies. (More on Citizen’s space aspirations below.) First, a brief look at highlights along the chronology of Citizen’s long investment into the study and improvement of titanium wrist watch technology.
