Watch Review: Bremont Boeing 100 Limited Edition Watch on the Wrist

 |  September 16th, 2016

Recently, we borrowed the Bremont Boeing 100 Limited Edition watch to wear and review. The thing about this watch is – to be honest – I am not really sure that I want a watch that celebrates Boeing’s 100th anniversary. I mean, I fly a lot on business and so I appreciate everything Boeing has done to advance jet speed, safety and travel; but this doesn’t mean I would run right out and buy an almost $8,000 watch in its honor. That said, I also recognized that many watch lovers have that keen affinity for the aviation field, with many being pilots who may have a more burning desire for a Boeing celebration than me. And, of course, it is…

Can you see that? The smile on my face? Ear to ear baby! Such is the excitement I felt after having spent a little over a week of quality time  with the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition ‘Antoine De Saint Exupery’ watch on my wrist.

On the Wrist: Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti Scritto Watch with Leather Dial

 |  July 14th, 2016

In stores now, this newest Hublot timepiece will knock your socks off. While it is not the first watch brand to team up with a bespoke menswear or leather house, Hublot is the first to team up wit the 120-year-old Berluti House of custom leather and clothing. Together they have designed the first watch with a bespoke leather dial from the Maison. Since its founding 120 years ago, the Parisian-born Berluti has created some of the most sumptuous leather shoes and treasures in the world – accomplishing an unparalleled patina via hand massaging with specialty oils and waxes. The brand utilizes that same art of patina when it comes to the making of the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti Scritto watch…

Hands On: Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon (with Wood Dial, Ship’s Rigging and More)

 |  July 13th, 2016

Earlier this year at Baselworld 2016, Ulysse Nardin unveiled the revolutionary Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon — a watch that is making its way to stores now.  The incredible scope of ingenuity and pioneering spirit behind this watch is mind-blowing. Reflecting the brand’s rich roots in marine chronometers, the new  Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon limited-edition watch is not only a nautically inspired timepiece with a hand-crafted wood marquetry dial, but also it is the first watch in history to utilize fiber Nano-threads (thinner than a strand of hair and borrowed from the ship-rigging industry) on the dial to resemble a ship’s rigging and to play an integral role in displaying the time. The high-precision watch features a dial that resembles a…

Off the Cuff Review: Philip Stein Classic Watch with Natural Frequency Technology

 |  July 12th, 2016

For the past two weeks I have been wearing and testing an unusual timepiece: the Philip Stein Classic Collection round watch. The reasons I call it unusual: 1) Those who know me know the style of the watch is not really me; 2) It has the Natural Frequency Technology built into it. In fact, Philip Stein Watches made their debut on the market 13 years ago – as a company focused on “feel-good” technology. We will bring you more about that in a few minutes, but first let’s look at the watch. Part of the brand’s Classic Collection, the watch I wore is a two-tone bracelet watch in stainless steel and yellow gold plated center links and bezel. The dial…
