This Week: Omega and Jaeger-LeCoultre updated

2020/02/28 by Dale Vito

Quick update from WatchBase HQ, Amsterdam:

I’ve just finished going over Omega’s full current catalogue including the latest price increase. This means over 1400 watches are now up-to-date, ready for the upcoming novelty season. I’ve also put on draft a few upcoming 2020 releases, but those will have to wait until the info is made public 😉 .

A somewhat smaller project also finished is the Jaeger-LeCoultre catalogue, which is now also once again up-to-date. I’ve also added a couple of watches that were either missing or just released;

Stay tuned for many more updates in the coming weeks!


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!


This Week: Patek, Omega, Lange, TAG Heuer

2019/10/25 by Dale Vito

BUDDIES! It’s been a while since I posted an update on our blog – though of course new entries to our database have been plentiful. Anyway, I’m back with a few notable uploads of the past week(s).

Omega Constellation Master Chronometer 39 131.13.39.20.06.002

How about an entirely new full-size Constellation – with Master Chronometer movement nonetheless? I like it! This is my favorite dial, though I’d rather have it on the bracelet. The Constellation deserves another round, especially with all the hype surrounding stainless steel watches with integrated bracelets. MORE!

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer 41 Green 220.10.41.21.10.001

Green is the new Blue. This Aqua Terra looks stunning! MORE!

Patek Philippe Worltimer: Bye Bye Hong Kong

Did you notice? Patek Philippe exchanged Hong Kong in favor of Beijing on all of its worldtimers. Politics! For an example, see 5230R-001 versus 5230R-012.

TAG Heuer Autavia Calibre 5 – but no more Isograph

Well, that’s a disappointment: no more ‘Isograph’ tech for the Autavia. TAG is experiencing some production difficulties and has dropped the tech from the watch that was launched with it – for now. MORE!

A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus 363.179

Another week, another stainless steel sportswatch praised by those flown in, wined & dined to ‘review’ it. MORE!


This Week: Tudor, Zenith, Omega, Longines and Lange.

2019/07/07 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

Over the past week I finally finished my Datejust 28 and 31 update – which comprised an awful lot of watches. Here and there I added a few others too though, and below I picked a few of my favs:

Tudor Black Bay Ceramic One

This week saw the introduction of [nearly all of the] watches for Only Watch 2019. Among them the Tudor Black Bay Ceramic One, the first Black Bay with a ceramic case and bezel insert – though the case back is made of stainless steel, and the bezel itself of titanium. It’s a murdered-out stunner, and I can’t wait to see if any of these traits will trickle down to the regular production models. LINK!

Zenith El Primero A386 Revival Only Watch

Another Only Watch stunner – the A386 Revival in white gold with an added dash of color. LINK!

Omega Speedmaster First Omega in Space The Met

Ok, this one is not that spectacular, but our Speedmaster database is a source of great pride to of course I have to mention it: the First Omega in Space The Met. LINK!

Longines Legend Diver 36

We got our first glimpse of the Legend Diver 36 at BaselWorld 2018 (!) but it’s been awfully quiet since. Until now – LINK!

A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Up/Down for Wempe

The 1815 is back in a (okay, two) limited edition of 25 pieces for Wempe. The navy blue dial with contrasting silver sub dials looks particularly good when housed in white gold. LINK!


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: Vacheron Constantin, Damasko, Omega, Laco and Oris!

2019/05/18 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

In the past few weeks I took on a few major projects such as updating our Omega and Breitling entries, which was an awful lot of work. This week I took things a bit slower – but we have some great watches nonetheless!

Vacheron Constantin FiftySix

I started the week by updating our Vacheron Constantin database, mainly adding prices to those that didn’t have one yet. I also added a couple of new ones, including this FiftySix on bracelet. LINK!

Damask DH 3.0

Our intern Ruben started this week, and first on his list was Damasko. I really like these – especially this green-dialed DH3.0. LINK!

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M

Omega finally released its 2019 novelties – and they’re good. Of course there’s the Speedmaster, but how about this Seamaster 300m in Sedna? LINK!

Laco Rad-Aux LTD

Next for Ruben is another German watch brand: Laco. The first one we uploaded is this Rad-Aux ltd they did with Ablogtowatch. What do you think? LINK!

Oris Aquis Star Wars Stormtrooper

I missed this one when it was originally released, but it’s here now: the Aquis Stormp Trooper. This limited edition of 1300 pieces was created in 2018 for the Chinese (+Taiwanese and Hong Kong) market. 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!


Introducing: Omega Speedmaster Porsche Club of America

2017/11/09 by Dale Vito

Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Grey Side of the Moon / Porsche Club of America

Introduced TODAY, the Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon ‘PCA’ is a limited edition of only 99 pieces created for members of the Porsche Club of America.

Notwithstanding the small number of units produced, Omega went all-out for the Porsche Club of America and this limited edition. It’s based on the Grey Side of the Moon platform, but everything save for the mid-case seems to have been either altered or completely new.

Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Grey Side of the Moon / Porsche Club of America

 

Taking cues from ceramic disc brakes and their yellow calipers found on high-performance Porsche cars, it’s all grey and yellow. The bezel features the word Tachymeter in yellow; the hour, minute and seconds hand as well as the tip of the seconds counter are yellow too. On the [titanium!] dial the Speedmaster signature and five minute markers are done in the same bright color. To finish off the look, the #SpeedyPCA is fitted with a driver style grey calfskin strap with yellow stitching and a yellow rubber backside.

The Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon Porsche Club of America is only available through the PCATime shop.
