Your watch deserves a bracelet friend and Ephori will hook you up

January 20, 2017 . by John Biggs

Apparently it’s a thing now to wear fancy bracelets with watches. I don’t do it personally but damn if these aren’t some nice looking pieces. They’re made by a company called Ephori and they’re completely bespoke so you can put in your initials, your name, or even your Gmail password right on the bracelet. They’re…



Introducing the Graham Chronofighter Vintage GMT

January 20, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Like so many things horological, Graham’s trigger-fired Chronofighter is no longer a functional necessity. Unless you’re a bomber pilot flying high above Europe, you don’t need the added grip that the trigger gives you for starting your chronograph with freezing fingers. But it’s still damn cool.



Boston and Stewill: British-ly Swiss

We looked at the CODE41 a few weeks back and now we seem to have found its classy cousin: the KLYNT. Both have multi-piece dials, both proudly proclaim their Swiss automatic movements, and both seem to be shouting their names. But the KLYNT’s more traditional case shape and more elaborate dial might give it a…

This is a watch. There are many like it. This one is here. And on Kickstarter.



Ringing in the New Year with Greubel Forsey’s Grande Sonnerie

January 11, 2017 . by Jim Manley

This watch costs CHF 1,150,000 or about $1,123,266. Only a handful will be released each year. But I have a working theory that a watch like this is not much different from any other mechanical watch: It does a very particular thing in a very interesting way. The particular thing this Grande Sonnerie does, as…
