Yes my little British chums, just put JULY50 in at checkout and you can get 50 euros off a selection of BBMOD watches until this Sunday, 31st July. Remember there is some UK duty on top of the website prices, just how HMRC like to do things. We like the military spec Seiko Zulu Forest…

Spinnaker Spence 300: Real Slim Diver

Let’s be honest, 10.9mm high on the wrist is super slim for a 300m dive watch. Just think back to the heady days of freedom before the Plandemic, when a typical 45mm wide, bronze case dive watch looked like a Ninja throwing star – and weighed about the same. Big AR sapphire crystals, beefy 14mm…

Reviewed: Ailang Breguet Homage: Lost In Translation

Back in November 2021, your NWC mag Editor was tempted by this Ailang twin escapement tribute to the Breguet Tradition.

Portahl Titanium Peacemaker Is Almost There

We spotted this project on IndieGoGo – it’s also on Kick – and although we loathe the way brands deliberately add capital letters to their name, it’s a good looking titanium watch with a Swiss STP movement. A 40mm case, sapphire crystal, 44 hour reserve and DLC coating all add up nicely to create a…

Bell+Ross Artline Has The Streamliner Effect

Bell+Ross has sent us some info on their new BR-05 model, which is dubbed Artline. This draws inspiration from the early passenger planes of the 1930s and the late 1940s, which often had grooves set in the aluminium fuselage. A great example is the famous Junkers JU-52 which was a workhorse passenger plane across post-war…

Storm have a new minmalist design on sale. The Excepto is available with blue or green dials, has a quartz movement and steel bracelet. In the usual fashion it’s pretty chunky at 45mm wide. Comes with a Milanese mesh bracelet, but the lugs are 20mm so there are a wide range of straps or bracelets…

We Need To Talk About The Rolex Yachtmaster 40

There is a place in the world of watches for statement pieces, crazy-ass blingy timepieces that scream to the populace, `Hey dudes, I’m so rich I have no idea what to spend all this cash on, so check this out.’ It could be a Roger Dubois Excalibur complete with Knights of Ye Rounde Table. Maybe…
