Uncovered – Completely unique and rare vintage Audemars Piguet 40mm chronograph

It’s not everyday we get the chance to play with something deemed ‘priceless’!     Today was such a day..! This is a one-off Audemars Piguet yellow gold mechanical chronograph from 1946, the only known AP chronograph in a 40mm case.     All other AP chronographs at the time were 36mm…40mm was considered too […]

Live – The MB&F x Sarpaneva MoonMachine

You probably know the details of the collaboration between Max Busser of MBandF and Stepan Sarpaneva of, well, Sarpaneva, by now (if not then you can see them here), so instead look at some eye candy we made for you!             ;     Adam Wears: Lightweight cotton jacket by Gilberto […]

Ultra rare Patek Philippe Gondolo

A very quick post for today, and a quick peek at an ultra rare Patek Philippe     This is a Gondolo in an 18k yellow gold case from 1924. The watch has no reference numbers, but it does have verification from the Patek archives confirming it’s authenticity and existance. At 52mm tall, it’s the […]

Live – Hublot’s Magic Gold Ferrari Unico

So if you’ve been following the watch scene for a while you may have heard of a new alloy developed by Hublot. This alloy is a supposed mixture of gold with ceramic and it promises to be the first version of something every clumsy show off like me has prayed for…scratch-proof gold! [Click images for […]

The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion

This being my first post here on Watch Anish, I suppose I should introduce myself! My name is Otis Blank, I’m a photographer who has a passion for not just watches but cars as well. Anish was kind enough to ask me to be a part of this new website to provide some additional content […]

Uncovered – The Greubel Forsey they didn’t want you to know about!

Shhhhhhhhh…..     Ok so horological hide-and-seek is a bit of a funny game to play. Why would you go to the trouble of manufacturing a whole new watch, movement and all, to then just not bother releasing it?! A bit of a moronic move on the surface, but there is probably more to it […]

Futureproof – The Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps (MCT) Sequential One

You have to see the video of this thing!     Like honestly, it is one of my favourite technical pieces. We are quite lucky here in that we get to personally handle and work with some exceptional watches, from tourbillons (single, double and quadruple), perpetual calendars, minute repeaters, the works! But for me personally, […]

The pics…new Hublot King Power Unico ‘King Gold’

A sunny day in London calls for an impromptu photoshoot! The watch: Hublot’s new “King Gold” King Power Unico. I think they should have put ‘King’ a few more times in the model name. The gold is a new warmer shade of rose/red/pink gold (everyone calls it something different…isn’t that right ‘Everose’ Rolex!) due to […]

Bat shit mental or all-round Genius? The Christophe Colomb Equation of Time by Zenith…

You see it too, right?! Yup, that big clear bubble thing coming out of the bottom of the watch dial. What is that!? A defect in the glass surely? Well no, it’s actually there on purpose…let me explain why. Where to begin. Well if you aren’t familiar with Zenith as a brand, let me fill […]
