Feature: Useless or Not? 3 Watch Features
We’ve covered many of the varied and interesting complications watchmaking has to offer, from the humble self-changing date to the mighty perpetual calendar, but despite the vast iterations of features we have seen, there are always a few more that we haven’t—and some of them are quite unusual. Here are three of them—the question is, are they useless or not?
Review: Hublot Big Bang Sapphire
The steel and gold used to make watches are sourced from the ground and refined into a raw material, which is then shaped and finished into the final product. All pretty standard, pretty normal. But what if you could grow your watch instead?
Feature: 5 Open Dials
The beauty of a mechanical watch comes down to the movement ticking within, and for the most part it’s completely hidden from view. Even with a sapphire case back, it’s a shame to hide the mastery of this centuries-old technology from plain sight, and that’s a thought shared by watchmaker to King Louis XV, André Charles, who cut open his dials to expose the innards. Here are five open-dialled watches that continue the tradition.
Feature: 5 Watches For An Acquired Taste
It would be a very boring world if everybody liked the same steel watch with the same black dial and the same locking bracelet, and that’s why we have brands like IWC and Panerai, to mix things up a bit. But for some, even these more left field brands aren’t quite left field enough—in fact, they’d prefer something completely out of the park altogether. Here are five watches for those people.
Feature: 3 Crazy Watches That Got Even Crazier
Whether we like them or not, big watches are here to stay. Thick, chunky and in your face, these are timepieces that hide under no man's cuff. Like a low, wide car, or a window-shattering concert, there's something inherently appealing about a watch that lets you know you're wearing it. Just as the Bugatti Chiron is too fast for its own tyres, and as the heavy metal band Manowar's 1994 129.5db performance was louder than a jackhammer to the face, there are a few watchmakers out there who want to see just how far they can stretch the limits. Here are three watches that took crazy to the next level.
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.
Review: Hublot King Power Unico GMT
While Blancpain, the oldest watch manufacturer in the world today, was founded in 1735, Hublot... was not. Nearly two-and-a-half centuries separate the pair, and you don't need me to tell you—that's a lot. With so much ground to make up, how can Hublot possibly make its mark?
News: Hublot Big Bang Meca 10 Magic Gold
The expanding list of pre-SIHH 2017 limited edition watches continues with Hublot’s release of the Big Bang Meca-10 Magic Gold. The brand is no stranger to special edition timepieces, and this one will be limited to 200 models, combining both Hublot’s love of fusion and distinctive style.
Feature: Top Four Ceramic Watches
Ten years ago, most people would have associated the word 'ceramic' with potted plants and tea parties. After all, the Greek word that ceramic is derived from—kerameikos—means 'for pottery'. But that's all changed now, and ceramics are once again at the cutting edge of material science, harder, stronger and more impressive than ever before. We take a look at four ceramic watches to see just how good the technology really is.
Review: Hublot King Power Oceanographic 1000
I’m not someone who lives a life of extremes. As uncool as it might be to admit it, more often than not, I keep to the oft-scorned beaten track—but that doesn’t stop me from being able to admire the extreme and the extraordinary. Whether that be the globe-trotting lifestyle of a world-class diver, or the large, overstated watch he might be wearing on his wrist.
Review: Hublot Classic Fusion Extra-Thin
Hublot makes no bones about the fact that its signature style is big, bold and overtly self-confident - it did, after all, name one of its most famous watch lines the 'Big Bang'. In 2012, though, the brand did something that no one was quite expecting by unveiling the splendidly slim Classic Fusion Extra-Thin. It shook up what the watch community expected from Hublot - and proved that the brand wasn’t afraid to try new things. The result was something that encapsulated all of the dramatic impact that the brand is known for, while being enclosed in a stylishly thin and extremely wearable case.
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.
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: Omega Speedmaster vs Rolex Daytona
Walk into your nearest Omega boutique and chances are very high you’d be able to walk out again, wallet lighter, with a Speedmaster on your wrist. Not so Rolex’s Daytona, not unless you’re willing to pay the premium for precious metals. But is history about to change?
