Race Winner’s Rolex Daytona Makes 88,000 Euros

Has the bubble burst on the Rolex Daytona? Not according to the results from a recent auction in Copenhagen, where a 2017 Daytona watch, won by race driver Michael Christiansen made  very strong money. It was a charity auction to be fair, where prices tend to inflate as people want to signal their virtue, but…

Revamped TAG F1 Trio is Pitlane Ready

Always good to see TAG refresh the F1 quartz range, which are arguably the best value entry level Swiss watches on the market.  Yes £1550 is a huge chunk of cash for a quartz model, but the sharp looks and high build quality mean the TAG F1 watches tend to last decades. That translates into…

A 300m Swiss Dive Watch For £2700 is Almost Reasonable

We don’t make that statement lightly, as Globalists continue to transfer wealth from 90% of the population on Earth into their private island tax havens.  Bills are rising, shortages of essentail goods and services are being created. Winter is coming. We know £2700 is a huge chunk of cash. But consider this; if you are…

Baume & Mercier Riviera, With a Deeper Blue Dial

If you love the style of the AP Royal Oak, then maybe this new Baume & Mercier Riviera, with a wonderful deep blue dial and 12 sided bezel, might work for you. OK, it lacks the sheer prestige of the AP, but the Baume 10616 is still Swiss, looks sharp and has a 42mm case…

Tudor Pelagos 39 is A Sub For Everyman

We have said it before at NWC and we will say it again; you get Rolex level build quality, at an affordable price. Consider the latest Pelagos 39mm. Black dial, titanium case, in-house Calibre auto movement with over 70 hours of reserve, plus its COSC certified. That is a class combo. Add in a ceramic…

Breitling Superocean 42 is On Pre-Order

You know lots of Breitling watches suffer from Range Rover Vogue syndrome. They’re well made, prestige image, loads of heritage too. But they attract a certain wannabe gangsta/dealer element and I really think it has hurt the Breitling name in the UK market. Breitling also stuck to making enormous 45mm plus sized watches for far…

Ball Roadmaster Rescue, Now With Pulsometer Feature

Ball have revamped their Roadmaster rescue watch model. It has that mid-sized 41mm titanium case, the classic Ball gas tube lume on the dial. You also get chrono and pulsometer features. We love the ice blue dial colour, the black dial is OK too. But our fave is the white dial with contrasting blue sub-dials….

Watch Mag Collabs With Brands Are Short-Changing Readers

You see it more and more these days, collabs between watch websites or magazines and watch brands. It’s understandable, as it gives the website some kudos, plus the brand gets access to a ready made, often wealthy customer base.  At NWC mag towers…well, more of a basement flat with meat pies, we can only dream…
