Featuring a Valjoux 7750 Swiss movement, this watch offers amazing value for money at $1570, which sounds expensive … Continue reading Grey Dial P-51 Chrono is Back in Stock at LIV
It’s a rare thing when a Swiss brand launches a new Calibre of movement. Mostly the entire Swiss watch industry tends to update and tweak their movements, which largely resemble the same mechanical and auto movements – as regards the fundamental engineering – from say 25 or even 55 years ago.

Hublot is busy dropping new models in Singapore this week with a variety of vivid coloured cases and tech features. But this Unico Sorai edition of the Big Bang caught our eye as we think it’s a great looker, mixing bright colours with ceramic bezel and case, that statement diameter of 44mm and a flyback chrono movement. Also has a neat little red rhino logo … Continue reading Save Rhinos With The Hublot Big Bang Unico Sorai
The answer is Rod Stewart, who released a single under that moniker ealry in his career before joining the Faces. But let’s consider this super bright green Python watch from LIV. It’s big at 45mm across and has 200m of resistance as well. Sapphire crystal, silicone strap for the outdoors life.

Owners will always get asked `why did you buy a triangular watch?’ Yes, Elvis famously owned a Ventura, but then Elvis also had a bathroom cabinet that resembled a recently burgled Walgreens. Not everything Elvis … Continue reading Hamilton Ventura XXL: Viva La Deco

Remember the compact American cars of the 80s? They were all the rage in a time of fuel shortages and price hikes, just after the Iran hostage crisis and the beginnings of the US industrial sector shutdown, where mines, steelworks, car plants and lots more heavy industry all got abandoned as cheaper imports flooded in. To add insult to injury, after losing your manly Springsteenesque … Continue reading Oris x Cervo Volante: Retro Compact, But Cooler
The latest P-51 models from LIV are well worth checking out. The earlier P-51 was one of our faves, with the ETA Valjoux 7750 chrono movement inside and now it has been upgraded with a titanium case. Plus there are a wide range of colour combos to choose from. The yellow version is cool, the Teal Blue/Turquoise Cripe A’Mighty is the left field choice and … Continue reading LIV P-51 Titanium is a Valjoux 7750 Classic
