The Top Five Alternatives To The Current Rolex GMT-Master II

Are there proper replacements for the watch world’s biggest icons? That’s a question that often has a personal answer. A little over two weeks ago, I tried answering the question of whether there are great alternatives for the good ol’ Rolex Datejust. Last week, Robert-Jan did the same for the Omega Speedmaster. In this article, […] Visit The Top Five Alternatives To The Current Rolex GMT-Master II to read the full article.

Money As Motivation: Is Choosing A Watch With Your Brain Better Than Choosing With Your Heart?

The lion’s share of new watches you buy will drop in value like a rock the instant you put them on your wrist. Is that a bad thing? Not if you love the watch, wear it with pride, and start adding emotional value to it. But that will be worthless once you want to resell […] Visit Money As Motivation: Is Choosing A Watch With Your Brain Better Than Choosing With Your Heart? to read the full article.

The Watch/Wrist Size Dilemma — Is There Such A Thing As A Watch That’s Too Big Or Too Small?

This is largely going to be a visual exercise. What you’re about to see is three Fratelli — Sofia, Nacho, and Jorg — trying on a wide range of watches. Nothing new so far, I agree. But what they will be doing is wearing very differently sized watches, ranging from the elegant Cartier Tank Solo […] Visit The Watch/Wrist Size Dilemma — Is There Such A Thing As A Watch That’s Too Big Or Too Small? to read the full article.

Why I Bought The Omega Speedmaster Mark II — A Collector’s Story

The 1969 Omega Speedmaster Mark II was based on the original Alaska Project watch that Omega developed for NASA. For a long time, these watches were completely underrated. They could be had for less than €1000, and sometimes, even for half of that. Those days are behind us, but the Speedmaster Mark II 145.014 is […] Visit Why I Bought The Omega Speedmaster Mark II — A Collector’s Story to read the full article.

The protest at Fratello HQ yesterday started out in good spirits with the more progressive editors marching through the office merrily and optimistically chanting,“We want solar power! We want solar power!” But it didn’t take long for the situation to turn grim.

Omega Flightmaster 910 — Ode To An Icon 

Way before the Speedmaster, my very first Omega chronograph was a caliber 1040. It was the gold-plated Seamaster ref. 176.005, the watch that many call the “Jedi”. Well, it is neither a Jedi nor a “flat Jedi”, but that’s a story for another day. That Seamaster was the watch that spawned my interest in 1970s […] Visit Omega Flightmaster 910 — Ode To An Icon  to read the full article.

When Watch Hype Makes Sense — James Bond And His Omega Seamaster Plus Other Hits And Misses

Merriam-Webster’s definition of a perfect storm is “a critical or disastrous situation created by a powerful concurrence of factors.” That sounds bad. And if you saw Wolfgang Petersen’s biographical disaster movie The Perfect Storm, you know what it literally does and means. The term “perfect storm” was first used in 1998, and besides being used […] Visit When Watch Hype Makes Sense — James Bond And His Omega Seamaster Plus Other Hits And Misses to read the full article.

The 15 Best Droids In Star Wars Ranked

It's a current trend on social media to point out how easily we're willing to bond with anything, even our household appliances. Science fiction, however, has known about our willingness to love our metal friends for decades. In 1977, "Star Wars" leaned all the way into this adorable aspect of humanity, with Threepio and Artoo becoming our guides to a galaxy far, far away. It was a bold move to put the story on the shoulders of these two droids, but despite their metal shells, their humanity has...
