The pics…new Hublot King Power Unico ‘King Gold’

A sunny day in London calls for an impromptu photoshoot! The watch: Hublot’s new “King Gold” King Power Unico. I think they should have put ‘King’ a few more times in the model name. The gold is a new warmer shade of rose/red/pink gold (everyone calls it something different…isn’t that right ‘Everose’ Rolex!) due to […]

Are the chips still down for Zenith (it's a rubbish caption I know...but I'm tired and hungry so #DealWithIt)

Bat shit mental or all-round Genius? The Christophe Colomb Equation of Time by Zenith…

Piaget Polo Chronograph in rose gold and diamonds

(R)evolution Piaget

OK let’s be honest, what do you know about Piaget? Sure, they were (at least up until a couple of years ago) the makers of the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, but what else…?
