 |  April 16th, 2019

It was in November of 2017 the Montblanc brought a select group of journalists to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to discover the brand’s newest directions in timepieces. One of the big messages: a return to nature. The brand was unveiling watches at the SIHH 2018 that would highlight mountain climbing, hiking and more. This year, with its newest 2019 SIHH introductions, Montblanc continued that theme. Additionally, the brand has just launched an exciting new marketing campaign that highlights the importance of…

Breitling Leaves Baselworld, Tudor Announces Plans To Build New Space, Baselworld Management Speaks Out

 |  April 15th, 2019

In a really not-unexpected move, Breitling announced that it will not be returning to Baselworld in 2020. Just a couple of weeks ago, we posted our Baselworld 2019 wrap-up article. There we mentioned that Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling, indicated that unless he and the show could work out a way for the brand to hold its recently inaugurated “summits,” the company would not be back because to Kern’s way of thinking, Baselworld is too late in the year for…

10 Watches That Played Starring Roles in Iconic Movies Over The Decades

 |  April 12th, 2019

With summer movie flicks on their way to us, I wanted to review some of the great, iconic movies of all time and the watches that we saw in those films. It is a topic I wrote extensively about in other posts, so it is worth taking a look at once again now. Especially since we have seen Captain Marvel in a Citizen, Urwerk in Spider-Man and so much more. Instead of the current movies, though, we take a look…

Hands On With The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetuel

 |  April 11th, 2019

Back in January when the SIHH took place, the Jaeger-LeCoutlre Master Grande Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetuel watch was top on everybody’s list of best watches from the show. Critics weren’t wrong. They  were, however, early. Showing off this watch at its launch is great, however the complex timepiece is only just starting to make its way to markets around the world, with just a few pieces becoming available this summer and fall. For that reason, we held off on our review. Here,…

Hands On: Tutima Patria Admiral Blue

 |  April 9th, 2019

I’ve been a fan of the German brand Tutima for years. In fact, even before the brand was able to set up its state-of-the-art Manufacture back in the Saxony region of Germany once the Berlin wall was down.  I actually find that I am a fan of most German watch brands because I like the clean, functional appeal of the German aesthetic.   Tutima, long known as an amazing pilot’s watch brand, has also made incredible strides in its classically…

Baselworld 2019: A Closer Look At The Hautlence HL Sphere 01

 |  April 8th, 2019

Much of the value and pedigree of a watch manufacture is derived from how long the manufacture has been in existence. There has, however, over the last couple of decades, been a bucking of that trend as newer manufactures have entered the market place with fresh takes and technological accomplishments that rival those of any of the older houses. One such brand is Hautlence, and over the past 15-plus years the independent Swiss manufacture has  regularly launched pieces that  are…
