Watch over the prairies with some new Bulova Frank Lloyd Wright watches

For myself, I’ve always liked the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Something about all those crisp lines – even when curved – just really speaks to me. Of course, having his studio here outside of Chicago to be able to tour certainly helps as well. If you’re like me, and like Wright designs, these new watches that Bulova just announced are probably going to be of interest. First up – and to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation – is a 500-piece limited edition watch called…

Just released: the Oris Hangang Limited Edition

We’ve seen quite a number of brands releasing watches to support various environmental issues over the last year, and Oris is no stranger to that effort. We’ve seen them focus on reef restoration, Movember, and ocean cleanup. Now, they’re looking to help clean a river in South Korea with the Oris Hangang Limited Edition. The Hangang is a river that flows through Seoul, and is a primary source of water for the 10 million residents. As with so many rivers around the world, though, it’s not been treated kindly, and…

While these aren’t the newest of the new, Projects Watches has still released some interesting new pieces that are worth having a quick peek at.

Now funding: the Vilhelm Prism

As a brand, I’d say that Vilhelm is not afraid to take chances with their designs. We saw that with their inaugural Elemental (covered here) or the Talos (here) which took the Elemental design and mixed up the materials used. Well, now we’ve got a fully new design, along with one of our favorite materials making the debut in the Vilhelm Prism. Let’s start with materials. The Vilhelm Prism is offering up an alternative to the steel sport watch by bringing us a case and bracelet made of titanium, which…

Ran out of things to listen to? Bulova is here to help

Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp How, you might ask? Sure, they’re supporters of the Grammys, but this isn’t about music. No, you see, Bulova is embracing the Mad Men pitch of ““It’s Not a Timepiece. It’s a Conversation Piece” and launching a brand-new podcast, The Accutron Show. Who do they have hosting the show? Glad you asked. They’ve got Entertainment Reporter Bill McCuddy, Journalist David Graver (Cool Hunting, New York Times, Vogue), and Editor Scott Alexander (GQ, Playboy) on deck to keep the show on the rails. Along with that crew,…

Introducing the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon

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…

Just launched: The MAALS Giri Ventiquattro

Hey, do remember MAALS? We went hands on with their first model (right here) a little over two years ago, and now they’re back with their latest creation, just launched today on Kickstarter: the MAALS Giri Ventiquattro. While the MAALS Giri Ventiquattro is a wholly new watch, they’ve still kept touches that tie it to the first one – primarily, their silhouette logo (which is the two brothers) and the triangular accent (inspired by Alfa Romeo). Also, if you flip the watch over, you’ll see the astronaut reappearing, this time…

The Giorgio Fedon 1919 Skywalker is so weird it just might work

Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Hanging out on Massdrop I spotted something that is just weird enough – and cheap enough – to be worth a second look. It’s called the Giorgio Fedon 1919 Skywalker and it costs $179 for a 24-jewel SII Japan NH39 movement inside a case that owes allegiance to the Panerai brigade. The watch, which comes in multiple colors, features a standard face with open balance wheel and an odd little 24-hour dial at about 10 o’clock. There is no date window but it has a crown…

Tom Ford is introducing interchangeable bracelets

I know what you’re thinking – because it’s the same thing I thought when I got the press release. That being that, well, changeable bracelets aren’t really an innovation. Sure, quick release spring bars are the newer hotness, but it’s been done. But what it seems Tom Ford has done here has taken the idea of a pass-through textile strap, and applied it to a bracelet. If you take a closer look, you can see that there’s a small black plate that the two sides of the bracelet attaches to.…
