Newmark is one of those British watch brands that slips under most people’s radar, pretty apt for a brand involved in supplying the UK Armed Forces for many years in the past. The 6BB Chrono, (above) 71 Sport and 52 Field all tap into that rich military watch heritage, but feature modern movements and touches like sapphire crystals, C3 lume and 316 grade stainless steel … Continue reading Newmark Launches Three Heritage Editions
We love air travel at NWC. Sadly, I don’t have a pilot’s license, although I did get to turn a 1919 Sopwith biplane about 180 degrees over Barton aerodrome one time. Great feeling. So I understand why people like Pilot type watches. Big dials, wide cases, big numbers and huge crowns. Sure, we don’t fly aircraft wearing motorcycle gauntlets anymore, but the romance kinda drives … Continue reading Bremont Fury: Made-to-Order Bespoke Pilot Watch
Do you remember the Williams F1 racing team? Once a byword for winning in Formula One, they kinda got overshadowed by the Merc vs Red Bull battle of modern times.

We only ask the question as the watch is rather plain, black … Continue reading Bremont Williams F1 Racing Limited Edition

The Dirty Dozen movie inspired a generation of watch fans to buy a field watch, or milspec if you prefer. Something functional, unshowy and containing lots of lume so that night time timekeeping was available at a glance. Sure, not everyone is a night shift worker, badger den watcher, or serves in the military, but there are lots of reasons why you want a rugged … Continue reading Bremont Broadsword Recon: Dirty Deeds Done Good
Farer has launched a range of Moonphase watches, which celebrate pioneers in astrophysics, plus offer classic dress watch styling details. The three Eddington, Halley and Burbidge models all have 38mm cases, chamfered towards the lugs in a 1930s Deco streamlined style. They also have a dappled effect on the side of the case. Salmon, sky blue or night sky deep blue are your dial colour … Continue reading Farer’s Moonage Daydream
