Deep Blue Divers on Touch of Modern

We like to feature Touch of Modern sales here on WWR, for good reasons. They often have interesting timepieces at pretty decent discounts. The site does require you to sign up in order to buy, so if you have not done so already, you can join here. Right now on the site, they are featuring two interesting watch sales, one on a range of divers from Deep Blue, and the other on high end automatics from Azimuth.

Azimuth Watches on Touch of Modern

A new watch sale popped up on Touch of Modern for Azimuth Watches. The site has three distinct and different designs for this Swiss watchmaker that does things… a little differently. Touch of Modern is a member-only sales site, so if you are not already a member, you can sign up through this link.

Introducing the Breitling Transocean 38

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.

Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase, One for the ladies

For whatever reason (maybe it is because Patrick, John and I are all guys?) we don’t cover a lot of women’s watches here on WWR. For my part, I see a fair number of watches that would qualify as unisex, and most of the women I know (including my wife) tend prefer larger watches, not 50mm big, but at least around 40mm. But if you want something smaller, and with some high end materials (and a high end price tag), then the Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase might be the ticket (Christmas is just around the corner…).

Pssst – Want to Buy a Grail Watch, Touch of Modern Sales

A grail watch, the thing that dreams are made of. We all have them, well out of our price range watches to aspire to… one day. Touch of Modern (a private, limited time sale site, free to join) is running couple of sales right now (various brands, Breitling) on several drool worthy watches, with prices reduced (at least for me) from the stratosphere to the mere upper atmosphere. Maybe, just maybe, a 60% or so price drop will entice someone to pull a trigger.

Introducting the Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro 43

Even though I’ve been covering watches for a decent amount of time now, it is still a pleasant surprise to come across a brand doing something unexpected, especially one that has been established for a bit. That is especially helpful when they decide to apply the appellation of Retro to a new model – at least there is some back catalog to derive from. That is precisely what we have here with the Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro 43.
