Mühle Glashütte Teutonia Chronograph goes racing

March 9, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Their current focus may be “nautische instrumente,” but the first dials Mühle Glashütte produced were for speedometers and rev counters. That means it’s fitting they’ve returned to the racetrack with this facelift of the Teutonia chronograph. The Teutonia Sport I is a redesign of the German firm’s Teutonia II dress chronograph. The family resemblance is obvious: applied stick hour markers; ~42 mm…



Pit-row preview: Introducing the Geckota C-1 Racing Chronograph

February 21, 2017 . by Jim Manley

I have to wonder if Geckota is embarrassed by its new C1 Racing Chronograph. They shouldn’t be; although it’s obviously a Heuer Camaro homage it brings plenty of new ideas to the table. But they seem to want to avoid that inspiration because the Camaro is just about the only chronograph they don’t mention in…

I’m usually cold on quartz because it lacks the whiz-bang micro-mechanized intricacy of a mechanical movement.

First, it tells a lost chapter in the tale of watches and rockets that has been dominated by the Speedmaster for…

Christopher Ward Picks Up Where the C1 Grand Malvern Left Off

January 27, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Christopher Ward ushers in a third-generation today, updating their entry-level automatic dress watch (the C5 Malvern Automatic MK III) and their dressy quartz chronograph (the C3 Malvern Chronograph MK III). After reviewing the flagship C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve, I was excited to see what was next from Christopher Ward. With these two updates, I think…



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.
