Panerai Lab ID Lunimor 1950 Carbotech

Panerai Lab ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech Black is the result of the absence, or complete absorption, of light. We looked this little factoid up after having a play with the Panerai Lab ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 days.It sounds silly to say but this watch is a really dark black, like really really dark. It […]

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. The feel of a watch is an essential element that is so often over […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ulysse Nardin Marine Deck Tourbillon Launch in Abu Dhabi

Unveiling the MB&F HM8 in Dubai’s M.A.D Gallery

Every once in a while MB&F releases a new creation. And I’m sure to say this without even checking my facts, they release a lot more watches than 99% of independent brands do (while producing a lot less). And I’m not talking about limited edition this, or special edition that, black dial, blue dial, orange strap […]
