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!


BaselWorld 2018: Breitling - 2018/03/20 by Dale Vito


BaselWorld is opening its doors to the press tomorrow and general public the day after. While most brands still keep their releases a well-guarded secret, Breitling already put its 2018 novelties online earlier today.

There have been so many articles on Breitling and its CEO Georges Kern over the past few months that there was very little left unsaid anyway. Or was there? For the biggest part the new models are not surprising, being slight updates with the newer logo of existing watches, like with this Navitimer;

Some also got a new case size like this SuperOcean Heritage II, which is now also available in 44mm – and also a B01-powered Chronograph!

… though with that being said, some hidden gems remain to be found among the 2018 novelties, like this funky little 38mm Navitimer – which looks particularly good in black;
