Timeless + Bremont U2/T Review

The Timeless + Bremont U2/T is our first collaboration with Bremont and was inspired by the pilot’s watches of World War 2. To make a vintage version of the Bremont U-2, we took a watch farther from its source material than we’ve ever done before. In addition to adding blued hands and a new color… Read More »

Grand Seiko SBGH047 Review

The Grand Seiko SBGH047 is another great Hi-Beat model, in the same vein as the famous SBGH001 Hi-Beat. While they are, in fact, highly similar, there’s a little more to this boutique-exclusive than the gold seconds hand. The SBGH047 is probably best viewed as a version of the very popular SBGH001, which is, coincidentally, the… Read More »

Grand Seiko SBGH051 Review

The Grand Seiko SBGH051 is a stunning addition to the Hi-Beat lineup thanks to its blue dial and gold accents. The SBGH051 is another variation on the successful Hi-Beat theme, but a relatively provocative one when compared to another of my recent reviews, the SBGH047. The differences between the SBGH051 and the source material, the… Read More »

Grand Seiko SBGJ021 Review

Although the SBGJ021 is the third Grand Seiko I’m reviewing this week, it’s also the one that’s the most exciting. That’s partly due to its relatively rare 9S86 GMT movement, but mostly to its beautiful red dial and cool rotor. The SBGJ021 is unique mostly for its exotic looking dial, and it’s caught a lot… Read More »

Grand Seiko SBGV025 Review

The Grand Seiko SBGV025 is a new boutique-only model with a beautiful blue dial and a super accurate 9F quartz movement. The SBGV025 is a great choice for a pick up and go Grand Seiko, thanks to its dressy, but not boring, looks, its versatile 40mm size, and a movement that will hardly ever need… Read More »

New Omegas at Baselworld 2017!

Omega had another great year at Baselworld, this time focusing on the Speedmaster and Seamaster Aqua Terra lines. The most exciting release, however, was their “Trilogy”, three vintage limited editions. We’ll start with the highlight of Omega’s show, the Trilogy models.

New Astrons at Baselworld 2017!

For 2017, Seiko Astron has decided to pursue a more classical look with alpha hands, a big date complication, and even models with Roman numerals. The first three models we’ll look at are the highest-end of the new Astron collection, including the SSE137, yellow gold-accented SSE139 and black/rose gold accented SSE141. Already we can see… Read More »

New Nomoses at Baselworld 2017!

2017 is a big year for Nomos as they added numerous new beach-friendly options, known as Aqua, as well as an entire new collection within Club, named Campus, aimed at younger collectors. The Ahoi has been a runaway hit for Nomos, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they expanded their lineup for 2017. These are… Read More »

These four new references are the first non-limited Presage watches with… Read More »
