This Week: Bulgari, Omega, Tissot - 2019/11/23 by Dale Vito


While the week before was all about TAG Heuer, this week we’ve made some big steps in our Tissot database. Hundreds of watches have been added, and over 900 are waiting to be put live still. Bonkers. It’s not all Tissot though – I’ve also added a few other gems here and there. My favorites?

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tadao Ando

Wow, wow, WOW! The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic is easily one of my favorite watches from the past few years in whatever form, but this one might be one of the coolest yet. The case and bracelet remain unaltered from the original 102713, but the dial now has ridges radiating outwards from the small seconds axis – designed by Tadao Ando no less. It’s furthermore doesn’t have any writings or logos. Stunning!

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Arabic Blue

Another cool Octo Finissimo, this time with Eastern Arabic numerals on a blue base, housed in rose gold. We’ve seen these numerals on the Octo before, but this is a particularly lush execution. More!

Rose gold a bit much for you? it also comes in titanium.

Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond Set

It must’ve been at least a few weeks since the last Omega limited edition, so about time they did another one! Here we have the ‘James Bond Set’, which consists of two takes on the Seamaster 300M – one in stainless steel, one in yellow gold- sold as a set limited to 257 pieces. The design is similar to the 7007-piece 210.22.42.20.01.004 though there’s no date. My favorite of the two is the yellow gold; the contrast with the black dial, bezel and strap is particularly striking. More!

Tissot PR 100

Confession: I CAN’T SEE ANY MORE TISSOT! But there’s still over 900 to go. Anyway, here’s a completely harmless PR 100. 39mm, 100m water resistant, EUR 240 incl. VAT. What more does one really need? INFO!


Best of Week 13: Lange, Bvlgari, Rolex and more Rolex - 2019/03/30 by Dale Vito


Hi guys!

Welcome back to our weekly segment that highlights a couple of interesting additions to our ever-expanding database.

For the past week I’ve been out-of-office for a couple of days, while the others were mostly spent updating our Rolex section with new models and new configurations – which means tons of new Datejust and Day-Dates for example. Still, in this week’s list there are no less than TWO highlights that are not Rolex! Impressive, no?

A. Lange & Sohne Kleine Lange 1 25th Anniversary

Even though this is only the fourth of a total of twelve limited edition watches celebrating the 25th anniversary of the resurrection of the A. Lange & Söhne brand, the formula already feels familiar. A bit too perhaps? This notwithstanding this petit Lange 1 is a stunner. And limited to only 25 pieces! LINK!

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Ceramic

I think the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo is a smashing watch not matter the material in which it is executed. The latest is this black ceramic one and it seems that once again the Roman-based manufacturer has hit a home run. LINK!

Rolex Datejust 36

Ok, so here we go with the Rolex. The Datejust 36 in stainless steel (topped of by a white gold bezel should you wish) was one of the BaselWorld 2019 novelties and it already comes in a wild number of configurations. One of my favs is one of the simplest – this 126200-0003 with a domed bezel, black dial and Jubilee-style bracelet. LINK!

Rolex Day-Date 36

Feeling lucky today? Why not ditch the Datejust 36 in favor of something a bit more, well, everything: the Day-Date 36. One of my favorites is this white gold 128239-0023, which has a fluted bezel and a blue vignette dial (which the R calls Ombré) with diamond-set hour markers. LINK!

Rolex Daytona

Whilst browsing the Rolex website it occurred to me that a couple of Daytona’s had gotten new reference numbers. I’m not sure what separates this new 116518LN-0047 from the earlier 116518LN-0039, but it still looks stunning! LINK!
