Locman Ducati Watches: Racing Collab, But Does It Win Superpole?

You love Ducati motorcycles and so do we at NWC mag. So this new trio of Locman watches are worth a look. The logo is there, the carbon fibre-ish finish on the dials, the knurled chrono buttons…it’s all good. The case is vaguely like a handlebar mount for a Satnav, camera or gadget and we…

Ball Roadmaster M Chronograph: COSC Class But Overpriced?

Ball has a brand new Roadmaster M Chronograph and it is a COSC grade, 41mm titanium case model, with gas tube lume and and two dial colour/bezel colourways. We like the blue best. The bezel is bi-directional  by the way. In-house movement and enhanced anti-shock resistance are two features worth noting. On the downside, the…

If You Only Buy One Omega, The Speedmaster 57 Should Be It

Why? Well first, take a look at the clean, balanced and deep blue dial. No fancy logoscript messages, just a bold twin sub-dial layout, classic chrono style, with that graduated blue colour adding visual appeal.

Latest Aviation Themed Watches From Sekonda

Yes, the Omega Speedmaster is a classic dial design. The Moonswatch collabs by Swatch are also beautiful. But even though they are cheaper than an original Speedmaster, you’re still talking £400 plus from one of the many resellers online. Then you have the possibility that the Moonswatch you just bought is a fake… So assuming…

Junghans 1972 Competition; Big, Bold & Bullhead

The Bullhead watch is an acquired taste. Yes, the chrono pushers don’t dig into the back of your hand due to the re-positioning, but some think the watch looks a little odd with all the winding and setting stopwatch style, at the 11-1 o’clock positions. Add in some glorious 1970s motorsport style plus a vivid…

Hamilton have announced a new quartz chronograph, available on pre-order. The Khaki Aviation X Wind GMT has a military green dial colour, plus the usual multi time zone features.
