When it comes to Corum, most folks think of the Golden Bridge models, or the Bubble lineup. And that makes sense, as they are both iconic designs for the brand that look quite different from anything else out there. That’s giving short shrift to the Admiral collection, though, with it’s yachting-flag inspired dials. Just recently, the brand released a new version of the Corum Admiral AC-One 45 Chronograph.
With the BR 5, Bell & Ross is treading into some new territory. In what looks like the future of high-end watch design, this aviator looks like a cross between a Royal Oak and a Bulgari Octo.
Today, we’re going to talk about a watch from a smaller brand (in a small country) that we’ve not heard from in awhile – Estonia 1918. When we last had them on the page, we talked about a watch that was named after an armored train car that was involved in the War of Independence. Today, the Estonia 1918 Admiral is intended to honor not a machine, but the man who helped bring them to bear.
Watches heading into outer space – that’s almost to be expected. I mean, we just had all manner of celebratory watch releases for the commemoration of the moon landing. And I’m not knocking those, but what if a watch brand could turn some of their knowhow into something used for the trip to space, and not just timing things? That’s precisely what’s going on with Citizen’s partnering up with space.
Panerai is a brand I’ve long had a fascination with. Even before I knew about the Navy or even Hollywood connections (Stallone!), I just liked the look of the sandwich dial set into a cushion case. Well, Panerai knows how to not mess with a good thing, but still refresh things a bit. So, let’s have a look at what all is part of the new Panerai Luminor Due lineup.
Hey guys, just a note to let you know I’m selling my Seamaster Chrono, a 2001 piece I’ve had for about 15 years. It’s one of my favorites but I bought a GMT Seamaster chrono so this guy is hanging out in the watch box.
