A purple dial says two things; one you’re a member of the British Royal Family, or secondly, you just love to stand out from the crowd. Sure every man and his sheepdog own a few blue dial watches, but purple? That’s 70s disco, 80s Prince album. Oris do this Holstein edition thing every June 1st, which is their birthday. This year, it’s been 119 years … Continue reading Happy Birthday Oris, Let The Purple Reign
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf has an extra colour option for this summer, which brightens things up a tad. The company says the new light blue and yellow pattern is inspired by the sun rising, but we think it echoes the Gulf Racing car colours. Which is a good thing, classic combo. It makes the Super Sea Wolf a perfect motorsport watch for the summer, … Continue reading Summer Watches: Zodiac Sea Wolf Gets Gulf Spirit
There is no doubt that China loves skeleton dial watches. If you check out Ali Express you’ll see tons of them there, in every case design, every segmented dial, tourbillon, open heart, twin balances etc. Then there are brands like Corum, ostensibly Swiss but very much a China owned brand these days, with a range of skeleton dial watches. So it’s good marketing from TAG/LVMH … Continue reading TAG Monaco Skeleton: Nice Colours, Bit Too China Focused?

Silicone rubber strap, sapphire crystal and a bi-directional bezel finish off … Continue reading Super Limited Edition Bremont Celebrates TT Races

If you like beaches, sunshine and bar snacks from welcoming shacks, then we salute your relaxation goals.

The latest Seiko … Continue reading Summer Watches: Seiko 5 Midi Offers Beachfront Colours
MVMT are one of those fashion watch brands who are trying to up their game. We salute that aim. Maybe these new automatics are an indicator that things are improving. Fore sure, they don’t really offer great value at £309 apiece, with Miyota 8215 auto movements inside the 45.5mm wide steel case. The depth rating is 200m, which is resepctable of course, plus there’s lots … Continue reading MVMT Launches Basic Automatics: Worth £300?
