Introducing the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Jumping Hour

April 20, 2017 . by Jim Manley

The Malvern Massacre continues, and this time it’s personal. No watch will be spared in Christopher Ward’s march to modernity; their jumping hour timepiece is the next to undergo a makeover inspired by the C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve. The old C9 Jumping Hour MKIII is one of my personal favorites (which I’m coincidentally wearing…



Hands on with SEVENFRIDAY Q2/01 Regulator

April 19, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Since their first watch release of the P1/01 back in 2012, I have always been intrigued by SEVENFRIDAY. Their funky dials housed in odd shaped cases make all their models stand out and call for attention. Up to now I have only seen them in pictures and had to admire them from afar.

As Victor noted in a recent discussion he and I were having (talking about Baselworld releases), this really seems to be the year of the anniversary.  Quite a few brands are celebrating milestones for various watches, and Breitling is another one to join that particular party.  For me, I have a bit of a love/hate…

April 7, 2017 . by John Biggs

Be bop a loo bop, everybody, because Junghans is here to take you for a ride. The Junghans Meister Driver Automatic is a 1950s-style drivers watch that looks like it would go great behind the wheel of a mint green Pontaic. These three hander automatics feature a date window at 6 o’clock and should cost…



Oooh Porsche it monopush it real good

March 28, 2017 . by John Biggs

Porsche Design makes watches that you can either love or hate. This specific piece, the oddly inspiring new MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Titanium Chronograph has won my heart. Obviously based on cars that go fast, the Monobloc has a titanium case and an eminently legible face. Further, it has an odd “mono block” actuator that tilts back…
