The Latest Bamford Collab Has The Snob Factor

Bamford London are renowned for doing handsome remixes of Swiss watches and their recent foray into fashion watches with Casio’s G-Shock was another winner for us at NWC mag. The latest TAG collab has the moniker Highsnobiety and it’s very much a yellow and green, youth squad, fashion brand tie-in. Interestingly, the Snobiety website advertises…

The Return of The 36mm Case? Christopher Ward Says Yes

For decades most gents watches were a tiny 33mm across. That was back when men worked with heavy machinery so it was good to have a slim little watch that could be tucked under a protective glove, or a cuff if you were an office wallah. Then in the 60s it kinda went larger to…

Is The JLC Polaris a Green Dream?

Have to admit, I like Jaeger LeCoultre because they go their own way, and they have a thing about engineering, which really, every watch brand should embrace. Even fashion brands. But I’m not that keen on green dials. Maybe I’m not a genius, perhaps I just find it less jazzy than purple, or pleasing as…

Orient Star 1964 Second Edition. Yep, Green is Cool

Here’s the word; Orient Star will introduce two new Diver 1964 2nd edition models to its Sports Collection. Created in 1951, Orient Star has…

Casio MOD Watches: Customise, Personalise, Visualise

We love modded watches here at NWC mag. Why? Because like a cafe racer motorcycle, or a customised Gibson guitar, it’s about re-imagining the factory options, putting your own stamp on things, or just refreshing a classic for the modern era with the best bits available. So here’s a site on Etsy we found, Time…

Ferro One Hand in British Racing Green

Ferro has sent us some info on their British Racing Green watch, which is unusual in that it has just one hand. You can still gauge the time, more ot less from the position of that one hand, but at $455 we are demanding two – no let’s go large – THREE hands. Better for…

Feynman Fjord: ETA Power, Quirky Dial & Kinda Good

Feynman is a Singapore brand keen on making mechanical/auto watches with a twist. The latest model on pre-order is the Fjord, which features a sandwich type dial, with a sort of Hampton Court maze effect. We love that teal green colour too. The second hand looks a bit like a squiggly sperm, but we will…

Ball Engineer Channels That Ol’ Movado Triple Date Magic

If love the classic styling of the old Movado triple date watches then Ball have just the thing for you. The Engineer II Moon Calendar has those elegant day/month windows front and centre on the dial, with a crescent tipped hand indicating the date on the track at the edge of the dial. There are…

LIV Gamma Green 300m Dive Watch Is Back

One of the most popular dive watches in the LIV range is back. The Gamma Green has a Sellita SW auto movement, sapphire crystal and a 44mm wide steel case. Plus it’s extremely very green. Geniuses choose green, that’s the key takeaway from Meet The Parents and we are sticking with it. Priced at £590…
