The Amida Digitrend Brings Back The ’70s With Its Digital Driver’s Watch

There’s a new generation of high quality replica watches microbrands that’s got me excited. (Side note: I never really liked the term “microbrands” – James recently proposed “boutique brand” as an alternative and I like it). While the first generation of micros gave us a lot of heritage-inspired divers – some of them quite good! – this new generation is more design-forward, and varied. It can be difficult to evaluate…

A Few Words On Lange As It Opens A New Salon In San Francisco

A.Lange & Sohne watchmaker David Weber has been with the brand for almost 20 years. His father was a watchmaker, too. I briefly met him at Lange’s Salon opening in San Francisco where he was giving movement assembly demonstrations as well as performing the impressive party trick that only Lange watchmakers can: as a client took the Lange off their wrist, Weber would look at the hand-engraved balance cock for…

The Watches & Fashion Of Met Gala 2024

The Met Gala has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a philanthropic opportunity for New York high society back in 1948. Today, the first Monday in May is a night for celebrities and their outfits… and watches of all kinds. The dress code this year is “The Garden of Time,” inspired by a 1962 short story written by J.G. Ballard and it celebrates the opening of the…

A Pair Of Special ‘Chameleon’ Black Bays To Match The Visa Cash App RB Livery For The Miami Grand Prix

It’s Grand Prix weekend in Miami, and Tudor has taken to Instagram to tease a special pair of Black Bay dive watches created for the drivers of the Visa Cash App RB F1 Team that mirror a special livery designed for the race in Miami. For those who missed the announcement a couple of months ago, Tudor is a sponsor of the Visa Cash App RB Formula 1 team, and…

H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton Alpine

As both a watch enthusiast and Formula 1 fan, I am acutely aware of the various horological sponsors of the sport, and one of the more interesting developments to occur among these partnerships for the 2024 session is H. Moser & Cie. becoming the official watch sponsor for the Alpine F1 team. When it comes to a bid for the championship, Alpine is hardly off to the best start this…

F.P. Journe’s Élégante ‘Gino’s Dream’

If there’s one thing I should know by now, it’s that when it comes to F.P. Journe, I should expect the unexpected. When I asked several Journe collectors what they expected from the mind of François-Paul for this year’s release, answers varied from a new chronograph to a watch based on the Only Watch 2023 Furtif Bleu with tantalum case and tantalum bracelet. I doubt hardly anyone – myself included…

Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT

After a couple of sleep-deprived days at the fair, the general sentiment seems to be circling the idea that it’s a bit of a quiet year. That’s not hard to understand, either, as this year’s releases lack the pomp and circumstance of celebration dial Rolex, smaller divers from Tudor, a brand new chronograph from Lange, and so forth. From my perspective, this year feels more subtle – more about product…

Cartier Tortue Monopusher Chronograph

This year’s addition to the Cartier Privè collection is one of the house’s oldest shapes, the Tortue. But unlike most years, this time around, we’ve also got a complication: a monopusher chronograph that calls back to the Tortue chronos from the 1920s, as well as the 1998 CPCP edition with ties to some serious indie watchmakers. The 2024 Tortue collection is completed with a trio of time-only models, one that’s…
