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.

Doxa Army Will Inspire a Legion of AliExpress Homages

There’s a steel bezel insert and a bronze insert choice too, and we think the bronze one really adds a…

NWC mag is predicting some Casioak collabs later this year too, which will appeal to flippers. The latest steel case Casioak 2100 editions will retail at £449 in the UK, but expect flippers to start asking…

Breitling Give The Superocean a Modern Makeover

Breitling has given its Superocean range a long overdue makeover. The results are refreshing, a little bit MOD watch dare we say? If you look at the chunky hour markers, the deep dish chapter ring and the little 15min countdown markers on the bezel, you can see a raft of MOD watch details in this…
