Ball Slide Chronograph Review

BALL Watch is a company that's very active in case innovation.  We recently reviewed their awesome Magneto S and its protective metallic iris.  Today's watch, the Engineer Master II Slide Chronograph, focuses on a new approach to operating a chronograph.  Chronographs typically have two pushers, one for starting/stopping, the other for resetting.  On the Slide Chronograph, as you'd expect, all chronograph functions are operated via a sliding mechanism on the side of the case, which gives the watch a much cleaner look.  How well does it work?  Read on to find out.  

Ball Magneto S

Today we look at one of the more innovative and interesting watches we've seen in a long time, the Ball Magneto S.  Ball has really set itself apart from the competition by focusing on their case technology in addition to their obsession with tritium tubes over conventional luminous paint.

Nomos Ludwig Automatik Review

Nomos is a company famed for its understated Germanic designs, particularly those with bold Arabic numerals.  Their Tangente, Tangomat, Ahoi and Tetra designs all feature these trademark number markers.  When not employing Arabic numerals, Nomos uses no numerals at all, like in their Lambda, Zurich or Orion lines.

Bremont ALT1-C/PW

Today we look at a new and dressier incarnation of Bremont's popular ALT1-C chronograph line, the ALT1-C/PW.  The ALT1-C has always been on the restrained side for a chronograph, but aside from a gold model, it isn't offered in a polished case--until today.

Nomos Orion 1989 Review

Nomos released a beautiful new limited edition Orion model, in both 38 and 33 millimeter sizes, to honor the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.  Like all Orions, it's a very classy and understated piece, but the 1989 is perhaps even more understated than the ordinary models.

Why Use An Authorized Dealer?

In the contemporary watch world, there are basically three channels of commerce for new luxury watches:  authorized dealers, the grey market and the black market.  The black market needs no introduction, but many new watch collectors are confused by the differences between the grey market and authorized dealers.  

Nomos Metro Review

Today we look at the very first Nomos with the new swing system, the Metro.  Like a select few other Nomos watches, it features their unique gangreserve (power reserve) complication in addition to a date at 6:00, powered by a traditional hand wound movement.

Damasko Bracelet & DA36 Review

It's an unusual day where I review a bracelet with the watch as an afterthought, but this is one of those days.  Damasko, the popular German watchmaker known for its super tough tool watches and, more recently, for their high-tech in house movements, has never offered a bracelet, despite the demands of their fans.

Seiko Astron GPS Chronograph

Today we look at 6 of Seiko's all-new Astron Chronographs.  Their predecessor was the first watch to sync both time and time zone by GPS signal.  The new version, however, is not only Seiko's first chronograph to sync time and time zone via GPS, but it's also much thinner, smaller and lighter, making for not only a more complex watch, but also a surprisingly more versatile one as well.

How Spring Drive Works

The most discussed, debated and mysterious movement in the world today is the Seiko Spring Drive.  Most associated with the high-end brand Grand Seiko, spring drive movements are now available in many high end Seikos, from Ananta to Galante to Credor.

Grand Seiko SBGV009 & SBGV011

Today I have the pleasure of examining two new limited edition Grand Seikos for 2014. These are definitely the dressiest watches coming out of Grand Seiko this year and they are absolutely stunning. They also tie into Seiko's long and illustrious history perhaps better than any model in their current lineup.

Damasko DA44 & DA45

Today we look at two of Damasko's most affordable options, the DA44 and DA45. Although much lower priced than their in house DK line, they possess basically all the same high-tech features in terms of their case and construction.

Nomos Orion 38

Today I get to introduce you to Nomos' ultimate dress watch, the Orion 38. It takes Nomos' already ultra-clean dial and takes it up a notch while, like any proper dress watch, it loses the date (although a date complication is available).

Nomos Overview

Timeless Luxury Watches is proud to be offering Nomos watches for the very first time. As some of you know, I’ve been a fan of the brand for many years and it’s a dream come true to finally be able to see the entire line up in real life.

Bremont Victory Review


Today I get to look at a very rare and very special watch. It’s not often that a watch crosses my desk that was authorized by the National Museum of the Royal Navy (actually, it’s never happened before). That watch is, of course, the new Bremont Victory limited edition.

Seiko Astron Review

It’s not often that I get to review a watch that genuinely contributes something to horology. Generally I am happy to focus on the aesthetics and execution of a watch. But the Astron is a watch that sees farther than its peers.

Nomos Weltzeit Review

Today I have the pleasure of discussing one of the most sought after watches from Germany’s rising star, Nomos. The Weltzeit is a model I have been looking forward to seeing ever since its release, but they sell so fast I never get a chance to really examine it the way I’d like.
