Montblanc Summit

Montblanc Summit   Ordinarily when we write about watch brand collaborations they are almost exclusively with car companies. It has a well worn synergy. One lends the other a sense speed, the other in return, a sense of precision for measuring that speed.     The Montblanc Summit is not a car collaboration. It is […]

Girard Perregaux Laureato

Girard Perregaux Laureato   I’m going to perform a magic trick, I’m going to guess exactly what you’re thinking. “That’s just a Royal Oak wannabe” Was I right? Was that what you were thinking?     On some level it’s an understandable observation, but one we at Watch Anish are not prepared to agree with. […]

All The Feels

All The Feels While shooting for SEVENFRIDAY in the Fame Gallery in Zurich, we were confronted by a huge array of textures against which to contrast the pieces, and we created some really striking images, but it also made us think.

MB&F HM7 Aquapod

When you open a press release from a brand, one of the first things you are confronted with is a paragraph of florid prose about the “inspiration” for the watch in question. Sometimes it’s well written, sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it’s about motor racing, or aviation. Sometimes it’s about heritage or innovation. Quite often it’s […]

The RM 50-03 Tourbillon Split Second Chronograph Ultralight McLaren F1

The RM 50-03 Tourbillon Split Second Chronograph ultralight McLaren F1 With all stories that brands tell you about their watch, there is an element of romance that is crowbarred into the narrative and frankly, we don’t mind. We’re romantics at heart, but in the case of the RM 50-03 there is the ring of truth […]

SIHH 2017 Day 2 – RECAP

  It was a late start for Team Watch Anish, exacerbated by people having to charge phones and laptops and cameras and hair straighteners and God knows what else while sharing one Swiss adapter. This has lead to a discussion about why Switzerland doesn’t share plug format with the rest of Europe, or any other […]

SIHH 2017 Day 1 RECAP

  Vacheron Constantin   It is one of the accepted ironies of life that nothing at watch shows happens on time. Our first appointment of SiHH 2017 is no exception. The hushed and venerated tone of the Vacheron Constantin booth is a welcome tonic for the Watch Anish team who are a little shell shocked […]

WatchAnish HYT-38

HYT H1 Colorblock

Article by Reve Dagher for WatchAnish.com   We’ve seen brighter colors. But brighter isn’t always better. Or is it? From the cover of this post you’ve probably seen what we’re going to discuss here. It’s not a classy dress piece, nor is it very practical. So before getting into the ‘what and how much’ let’s […]
