Honda Fan? Seiko Super Cub Edition is Just For You

You could argue that the humble Honda C50 Cub was the one mode of transport that revolutionised society in the 20th century. Yes, the Beetle was a cheap mass produced car, but it was still beyond the reach of many Germans in the 1930s, it was – like the electric SUVs of today – a…

TAG Mario Kart: Everything That Is Wrong With Collabs in One Watch

Collabs are great. They offer watch brands a chance to team up with an avant garde design house, artist, musician or fashion brand. So look at the Vivienne Westwood Swatchs of the early 1990s, which captured that baggy, mad for it Happy Mondays, house music era perfectly. Affordable for ordinary people too. Or the tie-up…

Race Winner’s Rolex Daytona Makes 88,000 Euros

Has the bubble burst on the Rolex Daytona? Not according to the results from a recent auction in Copenhagen, where a 2017 Daytona watch, won by race driver Michael Christiansen made  very strong money. It was a charity auction to be fair, where prices tend to inflate as people want to signal their virtue, but…

Alpina Alpiner. Does it Make Sense Sense?

A refreshed Alpina Alpiner Extreme makes an interesting alternative to a Swiss prestige brand adventure watch. That name though, sounds odd repeating it. But you have to admit the name is perfect for trekking, boarding and ski-ing fans of course. Plus that waffle dial and screwdown bezel gives this one an AP vibe. At 41mm…

Revamped TAG F1 Trio is Pitlane Ready

Always good to see TAG refresh the F1 quartz range, which are arguably the best value entry level Swiss watches on the market.  Yes £1550 is a huge chunk of cash for a quartz model, but the sharp looks and high build quality mean the TAG F1 watches tend to last decades. That translates into…

Breitling Superocean 42 is On Pre-Order

You know lots of Breitling watches suffer from Range Rover Vogue syndrome. They’re well made, prestige image, loads of heritage too. But they attract a certain wannabe gangsta/dealer element and I really think it has hurt the Breitling name in the UK market. Breitling also stuck to making enormous 45mm plus sized watches for far…

Doxa Army Will Inspire a Legion of AliExpress Homages

This is one good looking dive watch, with that cool checkerboard dial design really standing out. 300m of depth resistance is respectable and sapphire crystal uni-directional bezel and engrave caseback all add to the mix. There’s a steel bezel insert and a bronze insert choice too, and we think the bronze one really adds a…
