BEST FROM: aBlogtoWatch & Friends September 30, 2016
As September comes to a close, this month’s roundup will focus on a couple of interesting new watches. The first watch that I want to highlight is the Gorilla Fastback watch. New watches are introduced about everyday online, but few with as interesting a design lineage as the Gorilla Fastback watch. It features an unusual design and has a case made of carbon fiber, but perhaps more impressively, it will go for under €1,000. The Gorilla Fastback watch aside, we will also be taking a look at a couple of black-colored (in one way or another) watches, namely Hublot’s new Big Bang Unico Sapphire All Black watch and Omega’s latest Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black GMT watch.
In addition to new watches, we will also be turning our attention to a few vintage icons. Among a couple of vintage Rolex watches is a vintage “Red Submariner,” and we discuss exactly why it is sought-after. The other is Rolex’s GMT-Master 1675, a watch that is gaining attention amongst vintage Rolex collectors and steadily appreciating in price. Then, we look at a newly discovered Panerai Watches Expensive reference 3646, which was found during a home furniture valuation. Learn more about these vintage icons below.
