Say Hello To The Cerberus Series 1 Skeleton

The result is Cerberus Watches and their skeleton dial automatic is on Kickstarter now if…

Zenith Defy Skyline Skeleton: AP Royal Oak Alternative?

The LVMH group are holding their own watch show in Singapore right now, so new models from TAG, Hublot and Zenith are all making waves. For those collecting luxury Swiss watches, the Zenith brand has always suffered a bit in the UK, standing in the shadow of TAG or Hublot in terms of street cred….

Stuhrling Imperia Skeleton: Black & White Contrast

The new Stuhrling Imperia skeleton comes in black or white dial choises, plus there’s a gold coloured bezel option for some extra bling. It’s a bit like black and white photographs for us at NWC mag, looks cool in some places, but it depends on the imagery and the context. The watch is big at…

Mido Gradient: It’s Skeleton. But Not as We Know It

Yeah as we scoured the web for skeleton/cutaway dial watches after the Hamilton Jazzmaster, we found sister brand Mido had a different take. This time, it’s almost like a veil on the movement, which let’s you see a bit of the workings, but retains dial integrity. This is an old watch, it was released in…

Hamilton Jazzmaster, With That Cutaway Fascination

Attention petrolheads, do you remember those amazing cutaway engine drawings that used to appear in MCN, Cycle World, Autocar etc? They were always so addictive, because you could see a bit of the guts of the motor, the new lumpier cams, the oil galleries, the re-positioned clutch and so on. Even the fragile camchain tensioner…
