Best of Week 27: 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!


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!


10000 watches! - 2015/10/15 by Dale Vito


Omega Seamaster 300m Spectre

 

Yeah guys – finally made it to 10.000!

It’s been some 8 months since the 3k update, so about 1.000 watches a month – that’s taking my holidays into account.

Few points worth noting;

  • Vacheron Constantin current catalogue is (nearly) complete.
  • Glashütte Original current catalogue is complete.
  • A. Lange & Söhne full catalogue is slowly progressing. I’m adding rare references every time I come across a picture.
  • Few smaller brands such as Defakto & Steinhart also have their full current catalogues online. These are including price lists. I will work on that for the others.
  • There are now almost 1.000 calibers in our database – 972.
  • I’m currently working on Zenith which is fun and should be done quite soon; then I’m planning on getting ready for auction season with a focus on vintage and next up SIHH and BaselWorld. Time flies.

That’s it for now – I’ll be in touch soon. And yes, the Spectre wristshot is completely random.
