We have had more than a handful of articles about Triwa watches, and for good reason. The brand seems to do a good job of mixing (generally) colorful styling, quality builds, and affordable prices. As I mentioned in our previous post on the Stirling Hvalen (link) the brand has been doing more around creating more subdued color combinations. This is a trend we see continued on in the Triwa Partisan Lansen.
I will admit, I am a sucker for a visually interesting watch. If you start exposing the more compelling (and kinetic) portions of the movement, then all the better. While I have only had one tourbillon cross my desk, I have to admit that it was a treat to watch in action. So, when I caught wind of the Antoine Preziuso 3volution Tourbillon, I definitely sat up and took notice.
Ball is a brand that first caught my eye a few years back for its use of tritium tubes in a variety of ways across their catalog. They are not just a one trick pony, though. In the last year or so, they have introduced quite a bit of technical innovations to their watches and movements. One of the latest ones that will be coming down the pike is the Ball Engineer II Magneto S Watch.
Last month, we brought you word of a new addition to the Tissot Visodate line – more precisely, a new bracelet to the lineup. From afar (and the one image that was available), I found myself rather liking the watch. Since then, we were able to spend some time with a sample, so today we are able to bring you a true review of the Tissot Visodate Milanais.
It is no secret that, once I discovered the Icelandic company Michelsen, I was quickly enamored of the products they were producing. While most of our attention has been on…
When it comes to mechanical time keeping, the oscillator is truly what allows the measurement of time. Take, for instance, a grandfather clock – it is the frequency of that pendulum swinging back and forth, at a constant rate, that allows the internal gearing to tell us the time. While things are on a much smaller scale, the same sort of principle applies to watches, be they mechanical or quartz watches. The humble oscillator has some really rather interesting developments recently, and that is what we will talk about in today’s edition of Historical Horology.
Breitling is very likely a brand that needs no introduction for most of us. While I can’t say I’m intimately familiar with all of the lineup, I have a passing knowledge of the brand. And it has stayed passing, because I have not found watches in their lineup that have appealed to be previously. While I appreciate the aviation heritage, the dials have often felt too cluttered for a landlubber like me. That is, until I came across the Breitling Transocean 38.
When it comes to watches, many brands seem to have an iconic model that comes to mind when you hear the name of the brand. For Omega, that watch is (for me, at least) the Speedmaster. This is a watch that started life in the late ’50s, and has seen some interesting developments. Read on for a dive into the history of the Omega Speedmaster.
