BaselWorld, Shinola, and new Argonite Movements

It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were bringing you word of a new collaboration between Shinola and Filson (link). With some of the watches coming out of that collaboration, we saw new functionality that the Argonite movements had not previously offered (specifically, a GMT complication). Shinola was not about to let those go unused in their own lines, and at BaselWorld, they introduced, formally, two new Argonite movements.

Introducing the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch

When it comes to the world of smart watches, one of the big complaints I have heard (and read about) is that they simply are not designed to be appealing to those who appreciate watches. Many of them are gadgets first, and just happen to be able to be strapped to your wrist. That argument is losing a lot of steam now, especially with the announcement of the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch.

We are no stranger to Mr Jones on these pages, as a their designs have pop up from time to time. As of late, they seem to have been getting more into collaborations with other brands.

Introducing the Tissot Vintage – BaselWorld 2015

As should be no surprise to anyone reading this site, BaselWorld is well underway, with all manner of announcements being made about new and interesting watches. This year, Tissot actually had five different collections that were launched or extended. While items like the T-Touch and MotoGP watches get most of the attention, I was intrigued by a different set of watches – the Tissot Vintage.

BaselWorld Introduction: The Junghans Meister Chronoscope

Chronographs are a funny thing, for me. On one hand, I do understand and appreciate the overall look of a chronograph, be it a bi- or tri-compax layout. For all practical purposes, however, I simply do not have a use the complication offers. As such, I generally tend to steer away from chronographs, especially as they are generally housed in larger cases. That all said, I may have found an exception to my rule with a watch being introduced at Basel later this month – the Junghans Meister Chronoscope.

Full Steam Ahead With The Projects Watches “On the Right Track”

Over the years, we here at WWR have developed relationships with quite a number of different brands, ranging from the newest indie’s to some of the bigger, more established names in the industry. One of the newer relationships we’ve developed is with Projects Watches. Along with the obvious affordability the brand offers, they have a unique sense of design, often pushed along by bringing in designers who are not traditional watch designers, resulting in some unique ideas. The latest of these is the Projects Watches “On the Right Track”.
