Hi there data-hungry watch freaks!
The past week I’ve once again added a respectable number of watches to our database. The big projects we’re working on are Tissot, Certina, Hublot and Longines. To keep things interesting (mainly for myself, that is) I’m alternating between these four brands – though still it can get quite repetitive. Luckily there’ve been a few odd new releases too. What stood out this week?
Longines Avigation Chronograph for Portugal
A bit of a passion of mine is uncovering obscure limited editions, often exclusive to specific markets. The Longines L2.618.104.22.168 is a prime example, being made in 225 pieces for the Portuguese market. More info!
NOMOS Tangente 35 for Antoine de Macedo – Paris Saint-Germain
The NOMOS Tangente 139.S50 for Antoine de Macedo (Paris Saint-Germain) is a limited edition of 75 pieces that’s subtly different from your standard 139. More info!
NOMOS Tangente Sport for Hodinkee
Another limited edition NOMOS introduced this week is the Tangente Sport for Hodinkee, reference 501.S6. The Tangente Sport was introduced in 2001 as one of NOMOS first attempts at a more robust, sportier timepiece. Its succes was fairly limited and it has since been replaced by watches such as the Club, the Ahoi, and the newer Tangente Sport neomatik. It’s a bit puzzling as to why Hodinkee went with this obscure, out-of-production watch – but it looks good if a bit tame. More info!
Certina DS-1 Powermatic
Alright, it’s neither new, rare or otherwise spectacular, but as an overall package I find this Certina DS-1 Powermatic quite convincing. A svelte case, classy dial and a ‘Powermatic 80’ as the source of motivation – at EUR 650 incl. VAT that’s not bad at all! More info!
