The Longines range is constantly being revamped and updated and the latest HydroConquest dive watch is a classic example. It now boasts 300m of water resistance, up from the old 200m benchmark. Plus there’s a GMT hand, which makes this more of an all-rounder wristwatch, not just a diver. The new colours also include a nice bottle green which we think is the collectors choice, … Continue reading New Longines HydroConquest Gets GMT, 72hr Reserve & More
Got to admit this Jack Mason Strat-o-timer looks the biz. Love that domed crystal, retro Joker purple and black bezel, lone star Texas detail on the dial, plus it’s an automatic.

This is your classic … Continue reading Jack Mason GMT Joker: Cool Looker But Kinda Pricey

The worldtimer watch is one of those 1950s jet age fashions that defined people as being modernists of their era. They needed to know what the time was in Rekjavik or Singapore, but you Bert Higginbottom, slaving in a factory in Rochdale, did not.
