“No more warpigs have the power…” indeed! Why? Well, because they’re making some tasty brews, of course! With this Afternoon Beer Break, we’re going both more local and more exotic. Why is that? Well, you see, WarPigs is actually an Ameri-Euro collaboration, that results in the tasty WarPigs Foggy Geezer.
Watchmaker Arnold & Son offers watches that are way beyond the commonplace. Their latest Basel introduction, a new piece called the Time Pyramid, is a hand made tourbillon that features a unique pyramidal movement structure that makes it look like something out of Stargate.
Zodiac is one of those brands that disappeared for awhile, and now they’ve been back with a vengeance. Sure, they’re owned by Fossil now, but they’ve got a deep catalog to pull from, since vintage reissues seem to be where it’s at these days (works for the car companies, why not watches?) The most recent watch from them – just announced at BaselWorld – is the Zodiac Aerospace GMT.
The Breitling Cockpit B50 Orbiter is one of those weird Breitlings that are, at once, hard and easy to love. The piece honors the first non-stop round-the-world trip in a balloon, originally achieved by balloonists Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones on March 21, 1999. The watch, which features a SuperQuartz movement, has a handsome engraving on the back celebrating the feat.
As I was on one of my never-ending quests to find new and interesting brands, I came across Aquatico Watch. They have several cool models but the ones I liked most was their Nautilus II diver. Long story short, I was able to get one from them to review and I was pretty happy with what I saw.
ORIS is announcing six watches at Baselworld for 2019, but of those six, this one really captures my attention. This is the ORIS CLEAN OCEAN LIMITED EDITION, a part of ORIS’s campaign to clean up the the world’s oceans.
When the first Breitling Superocean models were launched in 1957, they cemented Breitling’s place in history in the diver’s watch market. These 1957 watches were exceptional performers, and came to typify Breitling design language. With its new Superocean Collection, Breitling has updated and upgraded one of its best-loved and most successful watch families.
As our longtime readers are aware, WWR’s mission is all about covering the great affordable watches that are out there. In that arena, there are brands that immediately come to mind, and then there are others that are dismissed over overlooked. I’m not sure which camp you, dear reader, put Orient into, but they are definitely making solid watches at nice price points. While they’ve got plenty of popular models in their lineup, they’re now introducing some new ones. Just last week they unveiled the Orient Kamasu, their newest dive watch.
Rolex isn’t one to change history on whim. Mostly, they mine their back catalogue, with occasional color or bracelet changes, to tasteful effect. Today, they’re announcing a two-tone Deep Sea Sea-Dweller in two-tone gold and stainless steel.
Last year Citizen announced something called the Caliber 0100, a movement that is accurate to within ±1 second per year. This makes it, in theory, the most accurate mechanical watch in wooooooorld!
