Damasko DB3 & DB4 Review

The Damasko DB3 and DB4 are the last two models of our DB collection, the first collaboration between the German tool watch brand Damasko and Timeless. There are a number of differences in the DB3/4, both relative to the DB1 and 2, but also compared to other Damasko models.

Omega Globemaster Review

The Omega Globemaster has been hailed as one of the best new Omegas in a long time and it's pretty easy to see why. It brings a very unique combination of dressy, vintage styling at just the right time while simultaneously heralding a new standard in Swiss movement making, the Master Chronometer.

Omega Baselworld 2016

Omega has had a busy Baselworld 2016 with more than ten new offerings. The Seamaster line saw the most attention but the Speedmaster collection got numerous new additions as well. The Constellation line only has two updates but they're relatively significant ones.

Grand Seiko SBGA101 Review

The Grand Seiko SBGA101 is a member of the boutique collection of Grand Seikos, a group of watches that can only be purchased from an exclusive sub-group of GS dealers. Like other members of this collection, it's unusually sporty for Grand Seiko, a brand much better known for its dress watches.

Girard-Perregaux 1966 Steel

The Girard-Perregaux 1966 is arguably the high-end brand's staple, the quintessential collection that probably best identifies the watchmaker. As its name would suggest, it's a very classic design, although not particularly vintage. Instead, it's timeless, looking as good in 2016 as the day it was released.

Bremont AC I Review

Bremont's new AC I is part of a collection of four watches designed to honor the America's Cup yacht race and definitely my favorite of the collection. It is arguably the dressiest watch Bremont has ever made and features a gorgeous textured dial. Read on to learn more.

Tudor Ranger Review

The Tudor Ranger is one of the brand's most cherished models and represents, in my view anyway, something of a turning point of the company. The Ranger, by which I mean the original 1967 model that this one is based on, was one of the first times the company, a very close relative of Rolex, set off on its own.

Damasko DK200 GMT Review

The Damasko DK200 is the brand's first in-house GMT watch. Like its predecessors, it brings with it cutting edge material science for the case, but unlike virtually all other watches in its price range, it also comes with an extremely advanced in-house movement. Read on to learn more.

Nomos Neomatik Buyer's Guide

Nomos is releasing an entire special line of watches to bring in their new movement, the ultra-thin DUW 3001. There are 10 new Neomatik models, all featuring the new automatic, added to several existing lines of Nomos watches like Tangente and Orion. Read on to learn more about these new Neomatik watches.

Tudor Pelagos Review

The Tudor Pelagos is Tudor's highest-end diver, featuring their greatest depth rating, top-notch materials, and in the new version we're looking at today, it also features Tudor's first in-house movement, the MT5612. Couple those with this stunning new matte blue look and you've got an intriguing model on your hands. Join me as I do a deep dive on Tudor's second generation Pelagos, its history and its new movement.

Tudor North Flag Review

The Tudor North Flag is one of, if not the, most anticipated watches from Baselworld 2015. It, along with the new Tudor Pelagos, made waves by announcing a truly in-house movement for the brand. That's interesting for any brand, but it was perhaps most exciting for Tudor fans, as one of the key differences between Tudor and Rolex was the presence of the in-house movement in the Rolex. Today, that difference largely evaporates. But the North Flag is more than just a vessel for a movement, it's also a complete watch in and of itself and is almost as exciting from a design standpoint. 

Seiko Prospex Hi-Beat SBEX001 Review

Seiko Prospex has become almost synonymous with Japanese diving watches ever since its release (though not yet named Prospex) in 1965. Since then, Seiko has emerged as one of the absolute favorite brands among dive watch enthusiasts, thanks to their tough construction and innovative designs. This SBEX001 is the culmination of 50 years of Seiko dive watch development and is, without a doubt, the most sophisticated mechanical dive watch Seiko has ever produced.

Tudor Buyer's Guide

Tudor is one of the most well-loved brands of Swiss watches and is best known for its watches intended for sports and adventure, like the popular Pelagos or Chrono Blue, as well as its close relationship with Rolex. Tudor has only recently returned to America from an extended sabbatical but it's back and stronger th

Damasko DA38 Black Review

Damasko's most popular watch, by far, is their DA36.  It has come to symbolize the brand in the way the Submariner represents Rolex or the Tangente represents Nomos.  It is no surprise, then, that Damasko is attempting to replicate their success by creating a new version alongside it, the DA38.  

Ball JCK 2015

Ball is following up its amazing 2014 with lots of new models for 2015, including new thermometer watches, fully luminous moon phases and even a new anti-magnetic alloy case.  Read on to see all of our first hand impressions.  

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.
