El mundo de las ferias relojeras ha implosionado y se ha convertido en un thriller apasionante. Watches & Wonders, Dubai Watch Week, Geneva Watch Days, Time To Move, el evento sin nombre liderado por Rolex en Ginebra en 2021… y ahora HourUniverse. Cuando todos habían sentenciado a muerte Baselworld, MCH Group lanza HourUniverse como su proyecto más ambicioso. Una apuesta revolucionaria bien definida que sí plantea sobre la mesa detalles muy concretos frente a otros eventos anunciados que aún flotan en planteamientos generales. “Hay que olvidar la idea de pasillos…Leer más

Armin Strom this week releases a rose gold version of its Gravity Equal Force, an innovative time-only design with an unusual constant-force mechanism. The Armin Strom Gravity Equal Force, now with a black dial and a rose gold case, bridges and hands. The watch, which Armin Strom debuted in steel last year, features an in-house movement that takes a cue from high-precision pocket watches of yore. The watch’s ASB19 automatic movement features a motor barrel (where the mainspring resides) that stays locked after the watch is wound, creating a more…Leer más
Building a watch collection that brings you joy shouldn’t have to break the bank. Setting aside $5,000 to build an ideal 3 watch collection is within reason both financially (with a bit of planning as needed), and from an horological perspective. Not all great watches are locked behind long waitlists and hefty price tags, after […]

The Seiko Turtle is undoubtedly Seiko’s most famous and best-selling dive watch. Its combination of attractive dials, user-friendliness, robustness and excellent quality/price ratio has made the Turtle an all-time favourite. Having a best-selling watch like this is the dream of any brand, but it can also pose a risk. Watches have to evolve and finding the balance between a product that appeals to people and introducing improvements becomes a delicate task since any alterations will be judged more harshly than if the brand were to launch a brand new line.…Leer más
Swiss watchmaker Armin Strom debuted its latest version of the Gravity Equal Force today — in a new rose gold and black variation. The new case measures the same 41 mm x 12. 65 mm as the original Gravity Equal Force System 78, but is constructed of a solid 18K rose gold instead of stainless steel. With the Gravity Equal Force — and virtually all of Armin Strom timepieces — the movement components are openworked and visible on both sides of the watch and protected by sapphire crystals front and…Leer más

Ok, ok – “introducing” is a bit of a stretch, as this is a watch that hit the streets all the way back in April. That said, it’s been on my list to write up because it’s just such a surprisingly cool, sleeper-style watch. Let’s have a peek at what the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon has hiding under the hood. Before I even took a close look at the specs on the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon (all listed below), the dial grabbed my eye. You’ve got those elongated…Leer más
“Often described as the Olympics of endurance motorcycle racing, the ISDT was first established in Carlisle, England and invited five-man teams from countries around the world to a showdown in off-road motorcycle skills. It is well-known that McQueen was at this time one of the United States’ most skilled motorcyclists. Clearly before the era of massive insurance waivers, McQueen even performed the majority of his bike stunts in 1963’s The Great Escape himself. However, the famous jump over the wire fence was made by his stuntman and ISDT teammate, Bud…Leer más
While no official standards are indicating when a watch can be called (ultra-)thin, it is reasonably easy to pass your judgment about it. The heights of both the movement and the watch itself are common knowledge for most watches, and can therefore be compared to the record-holders in a specific category. Especially in recent years thin movements, and watches, have become en vogue again, as many people realized that in a sense they represent the nec plus ultra of the watch industry. Watches like the Bulgari Octo Finissimo also showed that it is not only classic dress watches that can benefit from this. Even the cool-factor of a modern-looking watch for every day, and every occasion, increases significantly when powered by an ultra-thin movement. Leave it to the following four watches to that thin is in. READ MORE
