This week: TAG Heuer, AP, and more

2020/09/19 by Dale Vito

This week’s best Watchbase entries

TAG Heuer Carrera 160th Anniversary

CENSORED

I stumbled upon this one whilst uploading a couple of the more classical Carrera offerings – the TAG Heuer Carrera 160th Anniversary CBN2A1D.BA0643. Building upon the template of the Carrera 02 44mm launched earlier this year, this limited edition of 1,860 pieces sports a silver ‘Panda’ style dial. Not a bad look! There’s a blue one too, in the form of ref. CBN2A1E.BA0643.

Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Japan Edition

The Breitling Chronomat B01 42 AB0134101B2 is exclusive to the Japanese market. But what’s different? The red accents on both the dial as well as the hands are now silver, making for a pure monochromatic look. The devil is in the details!


This Week: Omega, AP, Breitling, IWC and TAG Heuer

2019/06/22 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

Skipped a week again, but don’t worry – I still added a ton of watches. As always, here’s a few cool and notable ones;

IWC Pilot’s Watch Racing Green

The IW377726 is a limited edition of 1000 pieces with a Racing Green dial. Pretty cool right?! LINK!

TAG Heuer Monaco Eighties Edition

The TAG Heuer Monaco Eighties is the second model introduced in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Monaco. I’m not sure if you noticed, but it features a bold red dial. LINK!

Breitling Premier B01 Wheels and Waves

Breitling is doing all sorts of cool stuff with brands such as Norton, Colnago, OuterKnown – and now the Wheels and Waves festival. It’s almost as if Georges Kern is living out his midlife crisis through the winged B… LINK!

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep

BOOM – from outer space to ocean’s deep. The Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep -created for the The Five Deeps expedition- has 15.000 meters of water resistance. Sick. LINK!

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph The Hour Glass

The Hour Glass is turning 40 and they’re gonna do a whole lot of limited editions to celebrate. First is this APRO. In full platinum nonetheless. That’s baller. LINK!


This Week: Breitling

2019/05/11 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

This week I’ve been busy updating our Breitling section. I updated the prices and added a lot of missing configurations. I just finished the current collection and I’m now looking to improve the data we have on past collections too. This week’s list is thus 100% Breitling – but don’t worry, I picked the best!

Breitling Avenger II Seawolf Cobra Yellow

I LOVE Breitling’s bold dial colors – and this Avenger II is one of their best. The combination of the cool stainless steel, the yellow dial and the black rubber strap is stellar. LINK!

Breitling Transocean Chronograph

Who doesn’t fancy a good reverse panda? It’s paired with a golden brown calf leather strap on this Transocean, and it looks the business. LINK!

Breitling Emergency II Night Mission

The Emergency II is a wild watch in any configuration, but this boutique exclusive ups the ante. It features a carbon fiber dial with yellow accents, yellow hands and a bright yellow rubber strap. LINK!

Breitling Aerospace Evo

Breitling’s ana-digi expertise but in a more discrete package – the Aerospace Evo. I think this model might be up for a restyling later this year, but I for one hope they won’t mess with it too much. LINK!

Breitling Superocean Heritage II 42

Last but not least – and another one in blue-on-blue. I think the SuperOcean Heritage II is a stellar watch, especially in this latest generation which features a ceramic bezel insert and a Tudor-sourced movement. LINK!


Best of week 18: TAG Heuer, MB&F, price increases for Omega and Breitling!

2019/05/04 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

Missed last week’s post? I’m sorry! Between the days off for Easter and King’s Day there was so little left that it wasn’t really worth putting up a post for. But this week I’m back!

Both Breitling and Omega have increased their prices per May 1st. Omega’s latest price list has almost 1.200 unique references, whilst Breitling’s is 28 pages. Aside from updating prices on watches listed, this also allows me to make up our inventory and see what’s missing. Can you imagine the work? Most of the watches I’ve added are thus not new releases, but rather missing configurations of existing models.

TAG Heuer Autavia Isograph

I finally managed to add the TAG Heuer Autavia Isograph models – not sure why I hadn’t before? My fav is probably the black dial on leather. LINK!

MB&F Split Escapement Titanium / Green

Our MB&F database is a thing of beauty – if I may say so myself. I’m sure there’s some custom and unique pieces missing, but otherwise it’s fairly complete. The latest is the Split Escapement in titanium with a green back plate for the three ‘dials’. LINK!

Price increase: Omega Seamaster 300M

The Omega Seamaster 300M is a watch that was hit quite hard by Omega’s latest round of price increases. This 210.30.42.20.06.001 went from EUR 4.500 to EUR 4.900. Ouch. LINK!

Price increase: Omega Speedmaster Professional

The Speedy Pro already enjoyed a price increase earlier this year. The 311.30.42.30.01.005, just to name one, went up from EUR 4.300 to EUR 4.600. That’s it? No. It is now EUR 4.700. LINK!

Price increase: Breitling Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41

Breitling too has increased their prices, although it’s mostly pre-2019 watches that have been affected. This Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41 for example. LINK!


Best of Week 12: Breitling, Zenith, TUDOR, Rolex and NOMOS.

2019/03/23 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

It’s been a while – my bad! I’m going to try and bring some new life to our blog by doing a weekly segment that highlights a couple of watches that I’ve added to our database. Easy-peasy right? So without further ado, here’s my favorite watches of week 12 – the week of BaselWorld 2019 and Swatch Group’s Time To Move event.

NOMOS Club Campus 36 National Breast Cancer Foundation

Ok, so this is not a BaselWorld release, but it was added this week nonetheless. The NOMOS Club Campus 36 708.S2 is a special edition (not limited) created by NOMOS, Timeless Luxury of Texas, USA, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It says Have Hope where we usually find Made in Germany. How good is that?

Breitling Navitimer Ref 806 1959 Re-Edition

The Breitling Navitimer Ref 806 1959 Re-Edition is a near-perfect copy of the -you’ve probably guessed it- 1959 Navitimer 806. The tech behind it is thoroughly modern though; it is powered by the brand-new caliber B09.

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Adventure

Is it me, or are green dials a bit of a thing at the moment? The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Adventure has one – paired with a bronze case and a wild camouflage-colored alligator strap.

Tudor Heritage Black Bay S&G Chronograph

I expected a Black Bay GMT S&G, but Tudor gave us a Black Bay Chronograph S&G. And I like it! Tudor’s modus operandi is to do the gold bits in a brushed finish, which tones them down just enough.

Rolex GMT-Master II Meteorite

I’ve only just begun uploading the 2019 Rolex novelties. There’s still loads and loads to come. Of the handful that I’ve added to date the GMT-Master 126719BLRO-0002 is a firm favorite. A white gold case, ceramic Pepsi bezel, and a meteorite dial. It’s over-the-top and totally awesome.

See you next week!
