Feature: 3 Vintage-Inspired Chronographs
Since the whopping $17.8 million sale of Paul Newman’s Paul Newman, the world’s—or what seems like it—attention has been turned to vintage chronographs. Thing is, vintage chronographs can be pretty expensive. There are some great options out there if you’re willing to do a lot—a lot—of research, but even those can be costly. A Longines 13ZN can fetch as much as £15,000 for example. If all that sounds too much like hard work, then perhaps we have the answer for you…
Feature: The World’s Greatest Chronograph
For a very long time, it was possible to count the number of manufacturers that could make a chronograph movement on one hand, and there’s a reason for that—it’s a very hard complication to make. To find the greatest chronograph, however, is about more than just what ticks inside—it’s the journey, the history, the story. With that being said, here are three of the greatest chronographs ever made.
Feature: 5 Watches You Should Avoid
If you’re looking at buying your first premium watch, or even if it’s not your first rodeo, it can be a bit daunting trying to find the one that’s right for you. You may have an idea of what you want, perhaps even a brand or a type of watch, but there are still a whole load of pitfalls to trip up on when you finally take the plunge and enter the market. Never mind what you do want; here are 5 kinds of watches you should most certainly avoid.
Feature: The Breitling Slide Rule Bezel
In a time of calculators, computers, smart phones and the internet, the answer to any question is never more than a few taps of a screen or clicks of a button away. Remember when you had to just know who was in a movie, or what that song was? Before then, before all of that, there was a time when complex calculations were only achievable by hand or with a slide rule. It’s a skill that’s been lost over generations, but today we’re going to find out how, exactly, this mess of lines and numbers actually works.
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.
News: Breitling Colt Skyracer
Breitling's Colt enters 2017 with a variant that seems more adventurer-focused than ever. For a time-only watch it is feature-packed with modern tech geared at making the watch stronger, lighter and more accurate. The headlining detail is the use of Breitlight, appearing for the second time since the release of the 2016 Avenger Hurricane.
News: Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12H
If there’s one thing you can say about Breitling, it’s that the aviation-inspired watch brand definitely has its own distinctive sense of style. Breitling watches ooze confidence, not simply because of the over 100 years of watchmaking experience that goes into every watch, but because of their bold and confident aesthetic. The new Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12H is no exception, with its whopping 50mm case.
News: Breitling Chronomat Jet Team American Tour
If Breitling is known for anything, it’s dedication to the world of aviation. The brand has pioneered a number of high performance pilots’ watches, of which the Chronomat is one of the best known and most popular. This piece dates its history back to 1942, and has since undergone a number of evolutions and upgrades—becoming the first watch produced entirely in-house by Breitling in 2009 with the introduction of the B01 calibre.
News: Breitling for Bentley B06 Midnight Carbon
Smart, streamlined shape, precision engineering, and a sporty combination of carbon fibre and rubber—you’d be forgiven for thinking I was describing a sportscar, but of course, I’m talking about a watch. Essentially, that’s what Breitling has done in their Breitling for Bentley series of watches; taken all the best qualities from both brands, and combined them to make high-performance machine for the wrist.
News: Breitling Chronoliner Limited Edition
Breitling has a long association with the world of aviation, having manufactured precision instruments for aircraft cockpits and tailoring its early timepieces to the needs of professional pilots. This legacy has remained with the brand, heavily influencing its design concepts and aesthetic. It should come as no surprise, then, that this limited edition Chronoliner draws inspiration from Breitling's classic aviator watches from the 1950s and '60s.
News: Breitling Navitimer 1884 Chronograph
Combining the slide rule bezel calculator from the 1950s Navitimer with a pointer date display and dual day and month apertures synonymous with 1940s Datora, the limited edition Breitling Navitimer 1884 Chronograph honours some of the greatest design features the brand has popularised since its 1884 inception.
Review: Breitling Transocean Chronograph
Last issue, we looked at Breitling's flagship Chronomat, and we were undecided on whether it was the right direction for Breitling to go. We loved the calibre 01 in-house chronograph movement, but we weren't so sure about the looks. Well here's Breitling's take two, the Transocean Chronograph. I think we’re going to like this one…
Feature: Classic Chronographic
What is it that makes something a classic? Is it quality, design, being feature-rich - or is it something else entirely, something intangible, indescribable perhaps? We try to solve this seemingly unanswerable conundrum by pairing what we think are three future classic chronographs with three current classic cars, to see if the marriage of speed and time, old and new, can reveal something about what makes a watch a true legend of the ages. There’s no telling what the answer might be, and there’s always the distinct possibility that if we do find out, we'll bottle it up and sell it for millions and not tell you anyway. We'll see.
Review: Breitling Chronomat 44
Breitling is the yeast extract-based spread of watchmaking. Some people can't get enough of them, others wouldn't even wear one on a bet, but either way we've all heard of the brand. Pre-quartz revolution, Breitling watches were the go-to tools of the experts, found on the wrists of pilots, engineers, scientists and even astronauts, but post-quartz revolution, well—let's just say that Breitling seems to have taken a little longer than most finding its groove.
Feature: 5 Watch Facts You Didn't Know
If you’ve clicked on this, there’s a high chance that you have at least a passing interest in watches and timekeeping, beyond simply being aware of the time and wanting to know what the time is exactly. There’s also a chance you’re the kind of person who wants to further their knowledge and understanding of watches and timekeeping, and that’s good, because that’s exactly what’s about to happen.
Feature: New Releases At Baselworld 2019
It’s finally here! Another year has gone by and we’ve got Baselworld fever once again. The Swatch Group’s absence may have left a glaring hole in this year’s show, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still pleased, confused and outright surprised once again. This is part one of our two part special—keep an eye out for part two coming up soon.
Feature: 3 Contemporary Watches
Not every watch should look like an old one. Vintage styling is nice and all, but choice is even more so. The world would be a boring place if we all liked the same thing, etcetera, etcetera. And so, for those looking for something a touch more contemporary, here are three different avant-garde alternatives for three different budgets.
Feature: The Dream Watch Collection
Not everyone has been blessed with a casual means to buy whatever watches they like, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still be fun to dream. The same way you might ogle a LaFerrari or a Leica M, it’s enjoyable to experience incredible luxury watches and wonder, what if? Well, wonder no more as we assemble what just might be the dream three watch collection—one that’s got a bit of a theme.
