Feature: Five Unusual Watches
Watchmaking can be a little unadventurous at times, a little safe. Outside the realms of companies like MB&F and Urwerk, it's not often that a watch brand takes a risk with something unusual. Every now and then, however, something unexpected happens. Whether the accountant was off sick or simply wasn't paying attention, sometimes a designer gets something through the system that's a bit more interesting. Here are five examples.
Feature: Patek Philippe vs Omega
Let's get straight to it—the Patek Philippe 5170P in my right hand is worth almost 20 times as much as the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch in my left. With the Omega clocking an RRP of just over £4,000, that places the 5170P at a whopping £73,000. While some of that cost gets you a platinum case and diamonds on the dial, it's safe to say that most of it is spent on the bit you don't often get to see—the calibre CH 29-535 PS movement. But with the Omega carrying a similar hand-wound manual chronograph calibre 1863 movement for a fraction of the price, what are you really getting when you spend all that extra money?
Review: Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition
It's not every day you turn 60. It's quite the milestone. With the Speedmaster hitting 60 in 2017, Omega could have slapped a birthday badge on the current Moonwatch and been done with it—and we know from experience that they're not above that—but for this particular birthday, they've pulled out all the stops. This watch here may seem like a very well looked after 1957 CK 2915, but it's not—it's the 2017 Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition.
Review: Three Quartz Watches You Should Like
Even if you've only been interested in watches a short while, you'll likely already know that mechanical is king. It's traditional, exceptional, nostalgic; a far cry from the cold, industrial efficiency of quartz. Quartz nearly destroyed traditional watchmaking after all, and is the bastion of the cheap, plastic digital watch that took over the industry in the 1970s.
Review: Omega Speedmaster - Hesalite vs Sapphire
If you're reading this article, chances are you've followed the same journey trodden by many before and found yourself considering an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. And so you should; it's a brilliant watch that offers unrivalled heritage and surprisingly good value.
Review: Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Limited Edition
The release of a new limited edition by Omega probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone. The brand has made something of a habit of releasing special edition models—from Seamaster Bond watches to a plethora of Speedmasters celebrating the watch’s inextricable history with NASA (we recently covered the release of the Speedmaster 1957 trilogy, and have previously reviewed the Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award, as just two examples.)
Feature: Evolution Of The Omega Speedmaster
3,000 tonnes of Saturn 5 rocket, consuming fuel at fifteen tonnes per second, travelling 240,000 miles away from Earth, at a cost equivalent today of £25 billion, is perhaps one of the most ludicrous ideas to ever dawn upon mankind. But as is well documented (and sometimes disputed) that is exactly what happened in 1969. And then it happened again, and several more times too. This is the quest for Earth's nearest neighbour, it's only natural satellite, the bleak but beautiful Luna.
Review: Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award
Snoopy, the iconic cartoon dog from Charles Shulz’s classic Peanuts comic strip, is probably not something you automatically associate with high-end watchmaking. Especially with a brand like Omega, whose distinctions include taking the role of Official Olympic Timing Partner at almost every Games since 1932, and being the creators of the first watch on the Moon. But it’s this latter claim to fame that is the link between Omega and the aforementioned cartoon pooch.
News: Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer
The Speedmaster, otherwise known as the first Omega in space, has a longstanding and dramatic history with NASA. Launched in 1957, the watch has accompanied NASA astronauts on numerous missions — including the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission to the Moon, during which astronaut Jack Swigert used his Speedmaster to accurately time the now-famous course correction of their crippled craft, bringing the crew safely home. But its lunar credentials don't end there: a Speedmaster also accompanied Buzz Aldrin as he stepped for the first time onto the Moon — giving the watch its nifty nickname, the Moonwatch.
Brand Focus: Omega
Omega. The name itself is a symbol of greatness and the quest for perfection. Long recognised as perhaps one of the two most famous and important Swiss watch brands - alongside Rolex - Omega is known for the incredible quality of its mechanical engineering and the trend-setting appeal of its designs.
Feature: 3 Watches That Are Cheaper Than You Think
Money no object, we'd all be wearing Patek Philippes, F. P. Journes and the like, but unfortunately that's not the case. With rising RRPs and a healthy collectors' market, the best watches continue to get further out of reach for many people. But there's hope yet, and we've got three of them right here.
Review: Grand Seiko SBGJ011G
It may surprise you to learn that, in the 1920s, 95% of the cars actually produced in Japan were done so not by Japanese manufacturers, but by Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. Today, by contrast, Japan is the second largest passenger car-producing nation in the world, following only China, with the United States slipping down to fourth. Japan has spanned a century by moving from the production of poor quality domestic-only commercial vehicles to giving the world class-leading gems like the Nissan GT-R and the Lexus LFA. The question is, can the Japanese do the same with watches?
Feature: Nomos vs Jaeger-LeCoultre vs A. Lange & Söhne
A mechanical watch can cost less than £1,000, and a mechanical watch can also cost more than £100,000. For something so small, can there really be such a difference to warrant such a disparity in cost? To answer that question, we've assembled a group of three watches—starting with this Nomos Glashütte—and we're going to see just how much value you get.
Review: H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour
£11,500 is a lot of money. It'll get you a brand new ceramic Daytona and change. It's enough for a lightly used Royal Oak Offshore. With some haggling, it'll just about see you into a gold Patek Philippe Calatrava. So, why would you spend it all on a three-hander from a brand you've never even heard of?
