1915 Omega Petrograd

I’m thinking this Omega ain’t that hot, but it’s a nice concept. It’s basically a retread of a 1915 piece using caliber 2200 inside a rose gold case.

This Omega Museum watch is an absolute stunner. A limited [1915 pieces] reedition of the 1915 Omega Petrograd watch, featuring the omega caliber 2200 and in Red gold on a leather strap with reference number of 5703.30.0 it is part of Omega’s museum line of classic re-issues.

Holy crap.

Pièce Unique for the “only watch 2005” charity auction. “Cabriolet” wristwatch in rose and white gold; manually wound caliber 215 PS movement with subsidiary seconds. The two-tone silvery dial features rose gold baton indexes and two applied Breguet-style numerals at 12 o’clock. The subsidiary seconds dial at 6 o’clock emulates the square shape of the case.

The Marloe Cherwell – A Personal Relationship

Marloe Cherwell 02OK, you only have a few dozen hours to get behind the crowd-funded kick off of the Marloe Cherwell, but better late than never, am I right?  The brand was nice enough to loan me black and white dial versions, and I really liked them.  OK, I was probably predisposed, since the watches are hand wound minimalist watches without a date window, but just because a watch was built practically with me in mind, that does not mean I would love it, or does it?

Vintage vibes with the Vapaus Veli

As you probably surmised from that title, I have a thing for alliteration. Well, several types of word play, but we have what we have on hand. Know what else I have a thing for? As it turns out, it’s watches with a slick vintage feel. Show me a watch with a thin case, minimal bezel, and a visibly domed crystal, and I am definitely paying attention. This is a style that we see pop up now and again, and I do not get tired of running across it. The latest iteration find itself with a Swiss-made heart, and goes by the name of the Vapaus Veli.

Tic Toc Goes the New TOC Watch

Based in Dublin, Ireland, TOC watch is a new Kickstarter Watch brand founded by two lads by the name of Max and Will. In 2016, deep discussion of what makes a watch great grew into action. Starting on July 26th, 2017 the Kickstarter campaign will begin on their watch, the TOC19. The TOC19 is inspired by the Bauhaus era and uses a hand wound movement for its simplicity. They were kind enough to send me out one of their prototypes to review.
