If you did, Casio’s G-Shock One Piece Limited Edition is your watch.

0

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this week is shaping up to be a bit of a Yema week. Yesterday, we talked about a nod to Yema’s dive watch past, and now they’re introducing a new model into their aviation-focused lineup, one that goes by the name Yema Flygraf Pilot.

While we didn’t initially plan it to be this way, this week is turning out to be, well, Yema week. We’ve got two new releases to tell you about, as well as a hands-on review that we just recently wrapped up. Today, we’ve got the first of one of the new releases just hitting, the Yema Superman 63.

Hello, gorgeous. This beast – BR 03-92 from Bell & Ross – is a $4,500 full-lume diver that shines like a spotlight. The diver, encased in ceramic and connected to a rubber band, features a standard calibre BR-CAL.302. Automatic mechanical in a watch that looks amazing.

PAM01313

When you think of Panerai, you no doubt have a very specific design in mind. And, if I had to put money on it, it’s going to be something from the Panerai Luminor lineup.

Apple brings back the tach

0

One of the most popular complications in horology is the tachymeter, a graduated ring around the edge of a watch that usually reads from something like 500 to 60. Apple has recently added a tachymeter function in its new Chronograph Pro face and, given that these Apple Watch faces are things we love to hate, we decided to check it out.

Now Funding: the Peren Hintz

0

Just as certainly as the Earth orbits around the sun, new watches will keep showing up on Kickstarter. This time around, we’ve got one from a brand that’s returning to the well (aka, they know how to actually produce a watch) – the Peren Hintz, which launched a few days ago.

For when your lottery ticket hits – the Corum Lab 02

0

Let’s just get this out of the way up front – for many of us, the idea of a 6-figure watch launching now, with the economy being what it is (and the world falling apart), feels like a bad idea. But that ignores the fact that developing something like the Corum Lab 02 is not a quick process – so let’s see what’s in this visually stunning piece.

The Caliper Slide View II brings an updated edge to the ultimate tool watch

1

Picture it: it’s the year 2030. The Earth is on fire, aliens wander our city streets hunting for human meat, and you’re trying to watch its Always Sunny in Philadelphia when you realize your satellite connection is misaligned. As you climb the empty, burnt-out building in which you live, you find yourself facing a problem: how do you recalibrate the dish when all of the calculators in the world have been destroyed by an EMP bomb?

The answer is simple: the $248 Caliper Slide View MKII, a quartz slide rule watch that will take an apocalyptic licking and still keep ticking.
