Now funding: the Vilhelm Prism

0

As a brand, I’d say that Vilhelm is not afraid to take chances with their designs. We saw that with their inaugural Elemental (covered here) or the Talos (here) which took the Elemental design and mixed up the materials used. Well, now we’ve got a fully new design, along with one of our favorite materials making the debut in the Vilhelm Prism.

Ran out of things to listen to? Accutron is here to help

How, you might ask? Sure, they’re supporters of the Grammys, but this isn’t about music. No, you see, Bulova is embracing the Mad Men pitch of ““It’s Not a Timepiece. It’s a Conversation Piece” and launching a brand-new podcast, The Accutron Show.

Introducing the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon

0

Ok, ok – “introducing” is a bit of a stretch, as this is a watch that hit the streets all the way back in April. That said, it’s been on my list to write up because it’s just such a surprisingly cool, sleeper-style watch. Let’s have a peek at what the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon has hiding under the hood.

Just launched: The MAALS Giri Ventiquattro

Hey, do remember MAALS? We went hands on with their first model (right here) a little over two years ago, and now they’re back with their latest creation, just launched today on Kickstarter: the MAALS Giri Ventiquattro.

The Giorgio Fedon 1919 Skywalker is so weird it just might work

0

Hanging out on Massdrop I spotted something that is just weird enough – and cheap enough – to be worth a second look. It’s called the Giorgio Fedon 1919 Skywalker and it costs $179 for a 24-jewel SII Japan NH39 movement inside a case that owes allegiance to the Panerai brigade.

Tom Ford is introducing interchangeable bracelets

0

I know what you’re thinking – because it’s the same thing I thought when I got the press release. That being that, well, changeable bracelets aren’t really an innovation. Sure, quick release spring bars are the newer hotness, but it’s been done. But what it seems Tom Ford has done here has taken the idea of a pass-through textile strap, and applied it to a bracelet.

Is the Rado True Thinline Anima the watch of 2020?

0

Well, not in the sense of representing the year, given that this year really isn’t in anybody’s top anything given all the problems. But, if you’re going to limit yourself to releasing 2020 pieces of a watch, well, the tie-in is there. This new Rado True Thinline Anima takes everything we like about the True Thinline and dials it up a notch.

You can dive into travel with the Mido Ocean Star GMT

We first got to do a hands-on review with the Mido Ocean Star diver last year (which you can see here). I came away from that hands-on experience impressed, but Mido knew there was another way to up the game, and they have my number. By that, I mean they put my favorite complication into the new Mido Ocean Star GMT.

Manero Flyback by Carl F. Bucherer is just plain nice

To hear Carl F. Bucherer talk about it, this watches designed for the “cosmopolitan man” who enjoys “being open-minded and exuding the confidence and style to succeed, wherever [he is.]”

Closing soon: the Krons Stone Original S

0

Try as we might, sometimes we just can’t give you as much lead time with Kickstarter projects as you (and we) may like. One hidden benefit is – for some slower-moving projects – you can see if a project is funded prior to putting your pledge in. So, without further ado, the Krons Stone Original S.
