HYT H1 Colorblock

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 talk about the ‘why?!’ – Why would […]

Ulysse Nardin Marine Deck Tourbillon Launch in Abu Dhabi

Ulysse Nardin revisits its origins. Sailing that is. If you followed my Instagram feed last week then you saw how much I fell in love with the novelty. If not, you’re about to find out now. Last week I and my team were invited all the way to Abu Dhabi to see the unveiling of the […]

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 […]

Viva Las Vegas – Best Gambling Watches by Christophe Claret

There are classy watches. There are chunky watches. Sporty watches. Pilot watches, diver watches, apple watches, technical watches, alien watches. And there are also gambling watches. If you haven’t seen what’s cooking at Christophe Claret’s manufacture you ain’t seen jack sh*t! We’re about to show you some of the sickest interactive mechanical wristwatches that’ll make your […]

MB&F Balthazar – Part Man Part Machine

Not sure what went through Max Busser’s head when thinking of the name for his new creation, but Balthazar is considered to be one of the most notable Shakespearean baby names. There are different meanings to it, but in my book (the book of a guy who’s into the ‘Supernatural’ tv series) Balthazar was one kick […]

The New Age of Zenith – The Rise of a Watchmaking Star

We’re 100% sure you’re familiar with the brand. Zenith has been around, pretty much forever. A watchmaking firm with a very long and interesting history. A brand responsible for the ‘El Primero’ and ‘Pilot’ collections, which simply became iconic. But we can safely say that these past few years have probably been the most crucial for […]

The Weirdest Watches That Will Cost You a Fortune

Earlier this week we took a close look at our favourite watches with skulls. This time it’s about much more than that. It’s about why you should spend $100’000 or more on a watch that looks nothing like a watch. If we got a dollar for every time there was a comment saying ‘wtf is […]

Skeltons in the Closet : Skulls in the Watch Industry

There are two types of people: there are ones who like pretty much anything to do with skulls, and then there are ones who really don’t get why the imagery of a man’s skull is so iconic. If you’re the second type you should probably skip this post. Otherwise enjoy! Over the past 10 years […]

Arnold & Son 2016 Novelties and Why We Love Them

Our love for Arnold & Son started a few years back when we first saw the HM Perpetual Moon watch, featuring a very elegant dial with one distinguishing detail – a beautiful hand engraved indication of moon phase. A moon phase like no other moon phase. But you probably know what I’m talking about here. Three years […]

Shooting Emmanuel Bouchet in a £13 Million unique freehold house in Knightsbridge

Ever since we have first discovered Emmanuel Bouchet’s Complication One we’ve been meaning to get our hands on the watches outside of all the expos and boutiques to shoot them in natural light and take them out for a spin in the heart of UK’s capital. To help us with the location we’ve asked our friends at […]
