Introducing – The Seriously Technical Cyrus Klepcys DICE Racing Chronograph

The chronograph has since long been regarded as one of the most complex yet fascinating creations in the world of mechanical watchmaking. There’s a profound level of complexity involved when wanting to track elapsed time of any given event, whether it’s a horse race, the boiling of an egg, or just how long it took […]

Introducing – The Orient Star Skeleton Is The Brand’s Latest Luxury Watch

Orient Star is the higher-end tier within Orient’s portfolio, not unlike Seiko and Grand Seiko, although to a lesser extent. The brand is introducing a new piece called the Skeleton in its Contemporary Collection, which is simply a follow-up to last year’s Skeleton in the Classic Collection. That prior model celebrated Orient Star’s 70th anniversary […]

Introducing – The As-Sustainable-As-Can-Get Ulysse Nardin Diver Nørrona Arctic Night (Live Pics & Price)

If anybody outside the watch world were to ask what some of the biggest trends in watchmaking are today, the answer would undoubtedly include ‘collaborations’ and ‘sustainability‘. Ulysse Nardin is no stranger to collaborations, and for its latest Diver, it teams up with Norwegian outdoor sportswear brand Norrøna to produce the Diver Norrøna Arctic Night. […]

Introducing – The Gorgeous Habring2 for THC Erwin ‘THC School Piece’

It will come as no surprise that Habring² is one of our favourite independent watchmakers, as this was the brand of choice for our first-ever MONOCHROME Montre de Souscription presented last year. And given the fact, there have been quite a few collaborations with Habring and others we’ve seen in the past few years, we’re […]

Introducing – The Optical Magic Of The Zenith Defy Extreme Felipe Pantone

Zenith’s Defy Extreme is precisely that: an extreme version of the standard Defy model with a larger angular case and bolder design cues. By extension, you could say that contemporary artist Felipe Pantone also has a very fitting name since we all associate Pantone with the universal language of colour and his artworks and installations […]

Introducing – Speake-Marin Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary With The Ripples Anniversary Edition

Originally founded in 2002, Speake-Marin is celebrating 20 years of watchmaking this year and does so by presenting a special edition of its Ripples watch, aptly named the Ripples Anniversary Edition. This surprising luxury sports watch with an integrated design, the ever-popular category of watches, was launched earlier this year. Pairing Speake-Marin’s signature style with […]

Introducing – Lights, Camera, Action With The Horage Lensman 1 Tourbillon

Horage is an independent Swiss brand founded in 2007 and has already developed three in-house movements. There’s the K1 automatic in models like the Autark and Omnium, K2 micro-rotor in the new Supersede integrated sports watch and K-TOU tourbillon in its second watch, the Lensman 1. This latest piece follows the Tourbillon 1, which was […]

Hands-on – The Girard-Perregaux Laureato 42mm In Striking Green

Sailing in luxury sports watch waters is a devilishly tricky, competitive manoeuvre. Every last detail of an aspiring candidate is invariably compared to the forefather(s) and accusing fingers decry any hint of resemblance or likeness. When Girard-Perregaux reintroduced its Laureato collection in 2016, many indignant reactions and copycat accusations arose. However, the irony is that […]

Video Review – Reviewing The Robust Titoni Seascoper 600 Carbotech Chronometer

Robust, lightweight and thoroughly modern… but at an attainable level, that best describes the Titoni Seascoper 600 Carbotech Chronometer. The brand has a long tradition of producing relatively affordable watches, with a classical style like the Master Series, Airmaster or the Heritage collection. On the more sporty side of things, we find the Seascoper, Titoni’s […]
