Sekonda and Accurist are essentially the same company – they also own Limit too – and it’s no surprise when some Sekonda models are fairly similar to Accurist watches, which tend to cost more. So the latest cushion case Sekonda Airborne is a budget homage to the Accurist cushion case Retro Racer, which was launched…

Baltic has brought back the Bicompax chrono model, and the 002 version has a more retro dial design, plus the ST1901 movement inside the case.

Jack Mason Moto Racing: Handy Fashion Watch?

The vintage style motorsport chrono is one of our fave wristwatch designs here at NWC mag.

Tudor Black Bay Chrono Rocks The 70s With a Gold Dial

It’s amazing what a bit of old school 1970s gold paint can do and we love the Black Bay chronograph with a gold/champagne dial for 2022. Those retro pushers and that classic twin sub-dial look hark back to the Valjoux 7733/34 cal chronographs of the motorsports era when Lauda, Hunt, Stewart and Fittipaldi were doing…
