Borrowed Time: Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture

It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced the world to the Apple Watch. The new-age wearable promised to revolutionize the way we communicate, provide intimate health tracking, and streamline the way we interact with technology. Its introduction was hailed in Silicon Valley as the vanguard of a new...

Hands-On: Luminox Scott Cassell Deep Dive Automatic 1520 Series

There are dozens of watch brands, at price points across the board, that produce timepieces inspired by or even developed in cooperation with military units, from Panerai’s divers to IWC’s pilots to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Navy SEALs field watches. There are, on the other hand, just a small handful of brands — most of them on the...


Taking a Look at Romain Gauthier’s Influential Use of Titanium

When Romain Gauthier released his first titanium timepiece, the Prestige HMS Natural Titanium, in 2011, the reaction he received wasn’t quite what he was expecting. “Collectors knew me as an exponent of traditional Vallée de Joux watchmaking, presented in precious metal cases,” he says. “When I unveiled the Prestige HMS Natural Titanium, people said: ‘Why?...


Girard-Perregaux Adds to its Firmament With 1966 Blue Moon Edition

When Girard-Perregaux won the chronometry prize at the Neuchâtel Observatory in 1966, it would still be three years before mankind would set foot on the moon. Nevertheless, the introduction of the 1966 Blue Moon, the newest addition to the manufacture's vintage-inspired 1966 collection, in this, the 50th anniversary year of the 1969 moon landing, seems apt indeed. Here is a closer look at the new model.


An Interview with Davide Traxler, CEO of Parmigiani Fleurier

Parmigiani Fleurier is one of the most comprehensive Swiss watchmaking firms in operation today. The company — owned by the Sandoz Family Foundation — has built up what is perhaps the most horologically potent lineup of workshops and factories in the Swiss industry since it was founded by Michel Parmigiani in 1996. In need of...


Breguet Officially Launches New Marine Collection with Titanium Bracelets in Tow

Over the past three years, Breguet has placed a large amount of focus on rebuilding and redesigning its Marine collection. Historically, the Marine line is directly influenced by the brand’s background in marine chronometer production, a practice that dates back to October of 1815 when Abraham-Louis Breguet was christened the official “Watchmaker to the Royal...

Deeper Into the Green: Panerai Introduces Four New Radiomirs with Military Green Dials

Panerai has traditionally been one of the most straightforward watch brands when it comes to color options, but in recent years the Florentine watchmaker has not been immune to the growing color trends, adding blue, brown, and even green dials to its repertoire. This year, Panerai grows its selection of timepieces with military green dials with a quartet of new models from its Radiomir family.


Red Hot Summer: A Look at the Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X Magma

With Fourth of July celebrations officially behind us in the United States and a record-setting heat wave spreading across mainland Europe, I think it’s fair to say that we’ve arrived in the dog days of summer. With all the discussion over the hot weather taking place on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s reminded me...


MeisterSinger Adds a New Golden Moon to its Award-Winning Lunascope

Germany's MeisterSinger unveiled its first astronomical timepiece, the Lunascope, in 2018, combining the brand's hallmark single-hand timekeeping system with a photorealistic moon-phase display. The latest version, introduced this year, uses a golden-colored moon disk on a dark blue, starry background for an even more elegantly cosmic look.


Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: Laco Navy Cuxhaven And Bremerhaven

Germany’s Laco isn’t a brand we frequently feature in this series. Part of the reason for this has to do with the brand’s relevancy in the American market, while another part has to do with its being overshadowed by numerous other German brands with stronger messaging. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean Laco isn’t offering good watches,...

Happy Tourbillon Day! Here’s Another Look at the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Squelette 5395

The most compelling release for Breguet this year is the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Squelette 5395, a watch that combines the most emblematic of all Breguet inventions, the tourbillon, with a unique skeletonized dial architecture. The new watch takes the extra-thin, tourbillon-equipped Caliber 581 — a movement that has powered watches like last year’s Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique...

Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: Yema Rallye Andretti Limited Edition

This week we return to the French-based Yema and one of its most recent releases in the Rallye Andretti Limited Edition — a homage to one of the brand’s most famous historical designs now a part of its Motorsport Rallygraf Collection. The new piece commemorates the watch worn by racecar driver Mario Andretti during his unlikely...


Examining the Nomos DUW 6101 Caliber

In 2018, Nomos introduced a number of intriguing novelties; however, the real story was not the timepieces themselves, but the new movement inside. Cased within the new Autobahn and Update collections was the DUW 6101 caliber, the first neomatik movement featuring a date complication. Before getting into the steps that Nomos took to release what...


Borrowed Time: Tutima Tempostopp Chronograph

“Defiantly elegant.” That’s the phrase that settled into my mind as I attempted to boil down the appeal of the Tutima Tempostopp, a chronograph that features a sizable 43-mm rose-gold case, a vintage-look bicompax dial, and a new, lavishly finished in-house movement, whose architecture was inspired by a historical chronograph caliber. The Tempostopp is not...


Roll Out the Red Carpet: TAG Heuer Launches the Second Monaco 50th-Anniversary Limited Edition

Following the release of the first of five limited-edition Monaco watches intended to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic square-shaped TAG Heuer model at the Monaco Grand Prix in May, the LVMH-owned brand announced the second watch in the commemorative series late last week. The new TAG Heuer Monaco 1979-1989 Limited Edition was introduced...


Borrowed Time: MeisterSinger Lunascope

MeisterSinger, the German horological purveyor of single-handed timepieces that are read in five-minute increments, operates in a zone by itself. It has no true competitors, yet its stringent loyalty to the one-handed pursuit of timekeeping has often made me wonder if it’s a limiting factor to the brand’s overall development. This year, the 17-year-old company...
