Embedded in the essence of time, Cleopatra meets Carolijn Brouwer: Introducing the new Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Alinghi

Embedded in the essence of time, Cleopatra meets Carolijn Brouwer: Introducing the new Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Alinghi I love watches and reviewing them is like having my cake and eating it too. But once in a while it’s good to contemplate, and I guess today is one of those days. One of the side-effects of being married to a free-willed modern woman is that issues like feminism and days like International Women’s Day don’t go unnoticed. Later this month, on Wednesday, 26 August, is Women’s Equality Day…

‘Beyond the blue horizon, Joy is waiting for me’ – Introducing the new Carl F Bucherer Manero Flyback for 2020, now in — what a surprise — (horizon) blue

‘Beyond the blue horizon, Joy is waiting for me’ – Introducing the new Carl F Bucherer Manero Flyback for 2020, now in — what a surprise — (horizon) blue This review is going to be like a see-saw: on one hand, I will be praising the new Carl F Bucherer Manero Flyback to bits given I love it in its new blue avatar, and on the other hand, I am not too impressed by yet another blue watch from the horological world and the fact that Carl F Bucherer (CFB)…

Flying to fight the force of gravity with the new Franck Muller Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton

Flying to fight the force of gravity with the new Franck Muller Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton There is a 2003 song by Grammy nominated artist BT (Brian Wayne Transeau), an American musician, DJ, singer, songwriter called The Force of Gravity (that also features JC Chasez). Given the new watch we are reviewing today, the new Franck Muller Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton, is all about defying the force of gravity, it’s only apt we began with lyrics that rung home.  “Remember the words we use to speak; The promises made have…

Pretty in Pink: Introducing the new Hublot Big Bang Millennial Pink

Pretty in Pink: Introducing the new Hublot Big Bang Millennial Pink This review of the new Hublot Big Bang Millennial Pink is perhaps going to run in the form of two short movie reviews. Or maybe not. I haven’t really decided for sure, but the movie critic in me wants to write it like that. If not, at least there would be references to a couple of movies. There would of-course be references to the colour ‘Millennial Pink’.  The Colour  If you run a Google search for the definition of…

‘As some soft chime had stroked the air; And though the sound had parted thence, Still left an echo in the sense’ – Introducing the new Patek Philippe Minute Repeater 5303R-001

‘As some soft chime had stroked the air; And though the sound had parted thence, Still left an echo in the sense’ – Introducing the new Patek Philippe Minute Repeater 5303R-001 Often in darkness, seldom in view, is the minute repeater complication. It is one mechanism that best caters to the sense of hearing, caressing the sound waves as it goes on about its business. Patek for the first time in its long history of creating minute repeaters, now bares open this mechanism on its dial face for the world…

Forces behind the Sources: Watchbox’s Tim Mosso  Editor’s note: We all love to read about watches, and from a variety of sources.

Say Hello To The New Christopher Ward Website

Say hello to the new Christopher Ward website Introducing the fresh looks of the new Christopher Ward website. Ever felt that watch brands should enter the present age and have a digital presence that’s not only easy to navigate but also fresh and contemporary on appeal? How many have you visited a watch brand website, or any retail fashion website for that matter, fully intending to part with some cash, and left without any transactions as the website just won’t cooperate? I know I have.  In an increasingly fast-paced digital…

It took Omega 7 decades to come up with a Constellation that finally made me swoon – Introducing the new Omega Constellation Gents’ Collection 41

It took Omega 7 decades to come up with a Constellation that finally made me swoon – Introducing the new Omega Constellation Gents’ Collection 41  I could start this review off like most other sites; all mechanical, no emotional. But the new Omega Constellation Gents’ Collection 41 is a slightly more personal watch for me, given it’s one of the first 2020 releases that I would love to call my own. So let’s ignore the practical side, and instead, here’s more of an emotional review. One of the reasons I co-founded…

Coming out of the depths of darkness that 2020 has ushered on us, shining the light is the new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Full Lum

Coming out of the depths of darkness that 2020 has ushered on us, shining the light is the new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Full Lum It is apparently the dive watch season. You know it would have been easier to tell that here in Australia as well if it wasn’t the Covid-19 season and winter taking grip, but going by the plethora of new watch releases that have either been a lesson in diving like Tudor’s Black Bay 58 “Navy Blue” or a homage to summery colours like…

Preserving the past with a colourful contemporary attitude – Happy Tuesday with the TAG Heuer Carrera Review of the new 160 Years Montreal Limited Edition

Preserving the past with a colourful contemporary attitude – Happy Tuesday with the TAG Heuer Carrera Review of the new 160 Years Montreal Limited Edition One of my watch industry pet peeves is when brands keep on releasing the same watch over and over again with minute changes under the garb of a limited edition celebrating something or the other. It’s not to do with one specific brand, pretty much most are guilty of that. This trend has lent its unwavering arm to crush my enthusiasm, and I now often…
