At the heart of the refined architecture of the Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon Watch timepiece is the UN-171 manufacture movement, its complex mechanics stripped to a bare minimum. The essential beauty of the inner workings is fully revealed by its bold, aerial design. A design which takes the oversized Roman numerals, sword markers and raised rectangular bridge of the Executive collection.
One of the new Swiss Richard Mille watches to be debuted in January for 2012 is this RM 037 timepiece. While not the flagship new product, it is a nice watch that represents another nice and super pricey daily wear. The design evolution is quite interesting. Taken from previous Richard Mille watches are the hour markers and hands. The case is new, being a sort of hybrid between the thin-cased rectangular case models and those with Richard Mille's signature barrel-shaped case design.
Casio’s iconic G-Shock series of do-anything, go-anywhere watches has been a mainstay in watch culture since the release of the first G-Shock in 1983, the DW5000C. Over the years, Casio has constantly updated the G-Shock collection in fashion-forward colorways and with technological advancements to mirror current watch trends. Now, G-Shock have bolstered their range-topping MR-G collection with two new 3-Way Time Sync Casio G-Shock MR-G Connected Watches.
It took Roger Dubuis months to get a proper press release out on this watch with specs. I took images of the new Easy Diver watches back in January 2010, and am only now able to share them with you. I wanted some hard details to go along with the images. Prices will start at $12,900 for the subsidiary second model versions. Here are two different models. The sub seconds version and the chronograph. While the EasyDiver Chronograph is a sexy number, I think the real momentum is with the time only model.
Continuing the tradition of a recent partnership with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), Swiss Seiko has announced a new addition to the line-up known as the Seiko Prospex Special Edition PADI SPB071J1. When aBlogtoWatch announced the new collaboration back in 2016, it was obvious that fans of the brand were excited not only about the new color options, but the ability to commemorate the completion of their PADI certification process with a great watch.
In 2017 Swiss Omega released a slew of new Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M watch models, which offered easy to miss, albeit important changes to the brand's premier sports lifestyle dress watch. Sport-style dress watches are important in many markets such as the United States, where elegance as well as masculinity are key areas of interest for many consumers.
First things first: not to state the obvious but the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Watch (Ref. IW380901) is not going to be for everybody. For a start its 44mm in diameter and 15mm thick, making it, shall we say, less attractive to those with smaller wrists. On the flip side however, the case is constructed from lightweight, super strong titanium, which means the watch is nowhere near as heavy as it may first appear.
French contemporary artist Richard Orlinski is well known for his Pop-Art style beasts, beautifully constructed from geometric facets, but his latest project is actually a special twist to an already impressive watch. You see, Swiss Hublot has teamed up with the talented artist to re-imagine its Hublot Classic Fusion Watch, and the result is pretty close to perfection if you ask us.
It’s getting towards the end of the year and starting to get very cold (or very hot, depending on which hemisphere you live in). The Christmas decorations have already been up for weeks, and the office parties are about to get in full swing. To a watch lover, all of this can only mean one thing: it’s time for some SIHH 2018 previews! Never one to disappoint, MONOCHROME has everything you need to know about the new models coming out next year, regardless of whether you’ve been naughty or nice.
