We’re used to jumping hours…

But have you ever seen a watch with a jumping horse complication? Russian Konstantin Chaykin have made a watch in honor of Eadwaerd Muybridge that has an aperture that shows a jumping horse if you press a button. It jumps for 21 seconds if fully wound, but its more than enough to give you a […]

Ressence Type 3

Liquids seem to be the new thing in watchmaking. Ressence have filled their watch with one that makes the “hands” seem like they are projected on the sapphire crystal. A very cool effect that somewhat resembles those of compasses in boats. No crown is used; you simply turn the case back in order to wind […]

Anish’s Basel outfits

Which one do you prefer?

A special Portuguese!

It’s so nice to meet people who share the same interest and Basel is really the best place for such encounters if you love watches. writing personal statement Jitesh from @NewCavendishJewellers was wearing this special IWC Portuguese Rattrapante made for the 25th anniversary of the boutique. One of five pieces made and I got to […]

MB&F HM3 Megawind

The new MB&F Megawind seen in the flesh during Baselworld. We love it! Apart from the new and bigger rotor, you can now read the time on top of the spheres.

We found Mr. Bamford in Basel

Basel is over for Team Watchanish but we will make sure you get to see all we saw down there. If you’re not doing it already, make sure to follow @watchanish and me, @whatchs, on Instagram. Here’s one of my highlights from Basel… Meeting @bamfordwatchdepartment and seeing this lovely Deep-Sea of his!

Chopard or go home…

A very nice Chopard LUC Chronometer in rose gold with a full rose gold bracelet. A subtle way to make your friends go quiet!

New Breitling Emergency

We were invited to the Breitling party yesterday and you did (of course) see quite a few Breitlings on peoples’ wrists. This one we had to photograph; the new, 51mm big, Breitling Emergency on the wrist of the company’s Vice President. He wore it really well! With all the free drinks it was probably a […]

Show time in Russia

A watch brand from Russia? Yes, they do exist and they do a really good job, too. We got to see several watches from Konstantin Chaykin and the “Cinema”, a tribute to Eadweard Muybridge, was the one that really catches our eyes. As the name suggest, it has an aperture at 6 o’clock that, when […]

Nitro by MB&F and Urwerk

A watch with the name C3H5N3O9 (chemical name for nitroglycerine) is bound to look good. We had a chance to check it out yesterday and it is simply stunning. 110,000CHF and it’s yours!
