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.)
News: Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe 38
The Fifty Fathoms has a long and distinguished history. A predecessor to both the Rolex Submariner and Omega Seamaster, it was first developed for the French Navy as a military watch in the early 1950s. As such, it was made to be a utilitarian tool, meant to survive extreme environments and to be the ultimate companion for serious underwater operations.
News: Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Artistica Mystérieuse
If there’s one thing you expect your watch to do, it’s probably tell the time—but for its latest watch release, Jaeger-LeCoultre has put time-telling in the backseat, in favour of an elaborate demonstration of the brand’s technical skill. The Hybris Artistica Mystérieue’s main focus is its spectacular orbital flying tourbillon and elaborately decorated dial.
News: MB&F HM7 Aquapod
It might look like something from outer space, but the MB&F HM7 Aquapod is meant for a different kind of hostile environment entirely. This latest Horological Machine is MB&F’s first aquatic-themed timepiece, and so it follows that the watch takes its design inspiration from the streamline, biomorphic shape of the jellyfish.
Review: Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition H78719553
What you're looking at here is the result of one man's life's work—John Harrison. Lured by a prize of £20,000 (the equivalent of just under £3million today), he set aside his entire existence to solve the puzzle of Longitude, or to be more precise, to build a clock accurate enough to calculate a ship's position. Such was the problem of wayward ships that the British Government introduced the 1714 Longitude Act that promised a hefty bounty for anybody that could invent a way of accurately measuring Longitude. It was so difficult that even Newton claimed it to be impossible.
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.
News: Ulysse Nardin Classico Rooster
Sunday 1 January 2017 will mark the first day of the year of the Rooster in the Chinese zodiac. In a practice that’s starting to become something of a tradition in world of Swiss watches, a number of manufacturers have released watches to commemorate the dawning of the new zodiac year, as the monkeys of 2016 give way to the roosters of 2017.
News: IWC Big Pilot's Annual Calendar Le Petit Prince
French aviator and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry leaves two legacies in his wake—one of a skilled and fearless pilot, and the other of a heartfelt and talented writer. During his life, he was able to combine two often mutually exclusive qualities, pragmatism and creativity—so it’s no surprise that it’s this man who IWC has chosen to commemorate in a number of its pilot’s watches, a range of timepieces that also strives to combine utility with artistry.
News: Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter
Historically, Montblanc was most closely associated with luxury pens, the Meisterstück being its most iconic and successful. The brand’s watchmaking debut didn’t come until 1997, when it opened up its watchmaking division in Le Locle, Switzerland. The name of its first timepiece? The Meisterstück. Like its namesake, the watch was a finely finished piece of craftsmanship, but the brand didn’t really find its footing in horology until 2006, when Richemont (who already owned Montblanc) also acquired the esteemed Swiss movement-making firm Minerva.
News: Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Minute Repeater Mysterious Double Tourbillon
In 1912, Cartier unveiled the ‘Mystery Clock’, an iconic creation that amazed audiences worldwide with its apparently invisible mechanism and ‘floating’ hands. In reality, the hands were mounted on clear, rotating disks, creating the illusion of invisibility; it was a clever deception that made the clock incredibly popular, both then and now.
News: Oris Altimeter Rega Limited Edition
Watches have always played a big part not only in adventure and exploration, but also in one of the more unfortunate possible outcomes of those pursuits—emergency rescue. Breitling, for example, released a whole line of watches dedicated to aiding stranded pilots with its Emergency series, and even Apple watches feature an SOS beacon feature.
News: Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt
Roger Dubuis has pulled out all the stops for SIHH 2017 with three new releases: the Excalibur 36, the Excalibur Spider Skeleton Automatic, and arguably the most impressive, the Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt. This latter model, a limited edition of eight pieces, is very much in keeping with the brand’s tradition of unconventional design and innovation, taking the title as the first watch ever to be constructed from a super durable, high-performance alloy called ‘cobalt chrome’.
News: HYT Axl Rose
HYT, pioneer of hydromechanical technology in watch movements, is certainly at home when it comes to being a little bit on the rebellious side. The brand’s designs are ultra-contemporary, shrewdly experimenting with colours, shapes and materials to create surprising and unpredictable timepieces. It’s probably exactly that unpredictably that attracted Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose to collaborate with the watch brand in its latest new release, the HYT Axl Rose. Only 25 of these models have been created, and they were custom designed to the specifications of the rock’n’roll frontman himself.
News: Tudor Pelagos LHD
In a celebration of its past, Tudor has released the Tudor Pelagos LHD—a cool, rigged diver’s watch with a very unique feature: a left-handed crown. The piece is based on a watches made for the French Navy in the 1960s, so it’s technically not a new technology for the brands—but it’s received a handsome contemporary make-over for 2016.
News: H. Moser Endeavour Dual Time Concept
Limited edition watches often come in the form of highly complicated showstoppers—and while I’ll be the first to admit that it’s nice to have your figurative gob smacked by a jaw-dropping new watch, every now and then it’s nice to see a bit of understated simplicity. The H. Moser Endeavour Dual Time Concept is a perfect example of that, managing to incorporate a second timezone into an effortlessly stylish and simple dial. We’ve seen previously what H. Moser & Cie can do with minimalist design with the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar, released least year—now it’s the dual timezones turn.
News: Chopard L.U.C. Full Strike
Chopard has been creating beautiful watches since it was founded in 1860, but it didn’t have its own manufacture until 1996. Between then and now, it’s been making up for lost time, producing some really nice in-house movements—and in celebration of the 20-year anniversary of its manufacture, the brand has gone all out with the release of the Chopard L.U.C Full Strike.

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?
