Highlights from WatchTime New York 2015 Exhibition

It is quite surprising that New York, a city loved by so many collectors, doesn’t really offer any big watch exhibitions… Or at least that’s the way it was until this year, when our friends at WatchTime Magazine decided they’re going to organise a fair. We had spoken to them a few times back when it […]

Introducing MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual – The Legacy Continues

After Legacy Machines 1 and 2 were released as big fans of the collection we were anxiously waiting for the third model. Instead, we were all surprised when we saw MB&F release the LM101. It took a while to get used to due to its small size, but eventually we realised it only made sense […]

Emperador – The One Million Dollar Cigar Humidor by Imperiali

We often get asked – What’s the craziest thing we’ve ever seen in the watch industry, or what’s the most valuable thing we’ve ever held in our hands or took pictures of? While the ‘most valuable’ is a very tough thing to determine with so many watches and creations worth a mililon dollars or more nowadays, […]

Phillips x Aurel & Bacs: The Glamorous Day Date Sale

When you ask your average Rolex fan to list out their favorite models more often than not the humble Day-Date, aka the “Presidential”, comes some way down the list, if at all. Sure it’s a well built, classically styled dress watch suited to just about any occasion but it’s kind of boring right? Not so […]

A. Lange & Sohne comes of age in New York with new flagship boutique

Ask any mechanical watch fan to list their top five brands and invariably German watchmaker A. Lange & Sohne – or Lange, as it’s affectionately referred to by fans – will figure in the mix.

New Customized Rolex Daytona from Titan Black – Bespoke Watch For Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, President of UAE

Surely, we see customised Rolexes, APs, Pateks and even some less famous brands all the time: blacked out, coloured purple or engraved with initials, etc. Sometimes it looks nice, maybe even better than the original, and sometimes we just want to find the person who had the idea of customising that watch and smash that […]

Patina – the precious provenance. Or not. – by Kristian Haagen
