Hands-On With The Montblanc 1858 Geosphere Watch

Trust me when I say that a lot of timepieces go through my hands on a weekly basis. And as soon as this watch landed on my desk it had my attention. While saying that, it is worth noting that to me, like many others, Montblanc is a brand of top quality writing instruments. It […] Visit Hands-On With The Montblanc 1858 Geosphere Watch to read the full article.

Hands-On With The Rolex Submariner Date 126613LN Dive Watch

Last year, Rolex surprised us with a sudden novelty drop. While cynicism surrounding the Crown and its supply chain (or lack thereof), the new designs were themselves rather neat. The Oyster Perpetual models brought us color and class, while the new Submariner brought us the kind of evolution the brand is known for. Subtle tweaks […] Visit Hands-On With The Rolex Submariner Date 126613LN Dive Watch to read the full article.

Ben’s Top FOUR Space Movie Watches From The Last Decade

In this article, I select the extra-terrestrial movies from the 2010s that feature great watches. As you’ll see from the list, I’m not just showcasing the space-faring Omega Speedmaster here (although it does feature). What’s obvious in the last decade is the investment from Hamilton in cinematic product placement. But in no way do the […] Visit Ben’s Top FOUR Space Movie Watches From The Last Decade to read the full article.

Hands On: Zenith Chronomaster Sport - LVMH Watch Week 2021

  The current Zenith Chronomaster range, formerly known as the El Primero range, has been a best seller for almost a decade, and almost unchanged. The classic, original 38mm size as well as the larger modern (at the time) 42mm were a mainstay and a consistent performer. It’s an icon of Zenith, with a distinctive at-a-glance tri-colour oversized sub dials and of course, the high beat of 36,000 VPH of the movement. It’s a style that has been around since the very first El Primero equipped model n...

Hot Take: MB&F Horological Machine N°9 ‘Sapphire Vision’

Haute Horlogerie brands like MB&F to me are a bit like reading about the most beautiful supercars in a car magazine. You love them. You admire them. Maybe you even dream about owning one. But despite all that, chances are very small you’ll actually end up with one on your wrist. But MB&F makes us […] Visit Hot Take: MB&F Horological Machine N°9 ‘Sapphire Vision’ to read the full article.

Three Straps That Totally Changed My Aquadive, Echo-Neutra, And NOMOS Glashütte Watches

Recently, I spoke of my admiration for Forstner bracelets. My newfound love for flipping my watches from one band to another on the regular goes beyond a single brand, though. In fact, over the past year since I joined Fratello, I’ve taken to consuming straps like McDonald’s used to consume plastic straws. As a result, […] Visit Three Straps That Totally Changed My Aquadive, Echo-Neutra, And NOMOS Glashütte Watches to read the full article.

Hands-On With The Farer Pilot Watches Bradfield And Morgan

The design of early “three-hander“ pilot watches never spoke to me. They just looked too much like a dashboard instrument and not enough like a watch. Farer however took that design and transformed it into something that really grabbed my attention.
