Hublot Ferrari Techframe

Hublot Ferrari Techframe Watch brands collaborating with car brands is pretty standard stuff to be honest, which is what makes Hublot’s Ferrari colab so fascinating. Instead of simply putting a second logo on a standard release watch designed by the watch brand, Hublot invited Ferrari to the drawing board and gave them free reign. You […]

Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Chronograph

Full disclosure; I’m a pretty big fan of Zenith, so I was a little concerned when the buzz in the bars and cigar clubs of Basel was that the new Defy El Primero 21 Chrono was a departure from the status quo. Industry people who’d visited Zenith’s booth, complete with old time barber and shoe […]

SEVENFRIDAY S1/01

SEVENFRIDAY S1/01 The team at SEVENFRIDAY have once again come up with something a little different in an industry that can sometimes be a little repetitive. The S1/01 is an homage to industrial processes without abandoning a sense of luxury or environmental responsibility. The animation ring on this piece, which is SF speak for the […]

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. 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 […]
