Baselworld 2016 – Cosmograph Daytona

Woohoo I was wrong! In my previous article I dreamt along with many others that the ceramic Rolex Daytona would not surface until 2017, I am glad to report that it has been released in both black and white dials with a new reference 116500LN. Funnily enough the reference is the same for both dial […]

New Release : HYT H4 Gotham

It is a tale of the black abyss and lucid red blood. HYT have always done things their way, getting rid of hour hands and introducing liquids inside the mechanism. All bonkers if you ask me. Undeniably they have created numerous fantastic pieces that make a lot of us weak at the knees. That is […]

Baselworld 2015 – Louis Moinet Memoris

A watch complication can often be seen as secondary to the main event. That of course being the telling of time. Louis Moinet sees it differently. With the advent of the Chronograph nearly 200 years ago by one Louis Moinet, (the name the brand is named after) and 10 years since its’ re-introduction as an […]

Baselworld 2015 – Zenith

Zenith are renowned for their Chronographs the El Primero. Of late however, they have started spreading their wings a bit and trying to bring a bit more life to the brand through some smarter and some more akin to Haute Horology too. During Baselworld I saw quite a bit as always when it involves such […]

Baselworld 2015 – JeanRichard

JEANRICHARD is not a name synonymous with ultra expensive haute horology, that is a good thing. JR sits at the more ‘affordable’ end of the watch price spectrum. The offerings as you will know from my previous posts are well designed and offer a different aesthetic to the vast majority of designs often found in […]
