It’s been over a year since I originally reviewed the Casio G-Shock GA2110SU (also known within watch collecting circles as the “Casioak”). I would have thought by now that supply would have caught up with demand, but many of the colors are still often sold out. Unsurprisingly, Casio has continued to capitalize on the popularity of the series by releasing a new line of slightly smaller Casioaks. The watches are marketed as being for women, but in my opinion, some (or all) of the colors could also be worn by a man with a smaller wrist, or just one who prefers smaller sized watches.
Omega Constellation Globemaster (22.214.171.124.03.001) – $3,700 The Omega Constellation Globemaster (126.96.36.199.03.001) is arguably one of Omega’s most versatile pieces, and is the world’s first Master Chronometer. In short, this means the Omega Globemaster runs within the chronometer specifications (0 – +5 seconds per day on average) and is anti-magnetic up to 15,000 gauss. It’s also […]
Seiko Giugiaro x White Mountaineering (SCED065) – $300 The Seiko x Giugiaro relationship is one of the most notable and distinctive collaborations in the watch world. It all began in 1983 with four “Speed Master” watches, two of which were worn by and subsequently named after the characters “Ellen Ripley” and “Bishop” in the 1986 film Aliens. After […]
The Seiko divers that got us unto this hobby were so unconventional as to feel special despite their low price. You didn’t feel like you were buying them because they were a cheaper look-alike of the watch you really wanted but couldn’t afford. So does a more conventional and also more expensive Seiko diver still capture the charm that got us into this hobby?
Seiko Yachtman UFO (6138-0011) – $385 The Yachtman is no stranger to vintage Seiko enthusiasts. Its better known as the UFO, due to its flying saucer-shaped case. It is a bruiser of a vintage chronograph measuring in at 44 mm wide and 15 mm tall. Bet you didn’t know that the Yachtman is a frequent […]
Anyone who even casually follows watch media probably read coverage of Tudor’s 2021 new releases. Unless you were really paying attention though, you might not have noticed that Tudor also quietly removed a few models from its website. I had been hearing rumors of this coming for a while, but the official cancellation of the North Flag on the other hand did not make sense to me.
Seiko Sportura Kinetic Chronograph (SLQ007) – $1,500 The SLQ007 is one of the most collectible pieces in the Seiko Sportura Collection, and has been nicknamed as the “Jay Leno”, as this was the watch he wore for years on his hit internet show: “Jay Leno’s Garage”. The listing comes with the original papers, but not […]
Christopher Ward developed a “bang for the buck” reputation among watch enthusiasts as is has been “cutting out the middle man” before the term had become a cliché. Its contender in the “retro-dive” category is the C65 Trident Automatic.
Tudor Black Bay 58 Blue (79030) – $3,395 The Black Bay 58 Blue was one of the most hyped watches of 2020, building on the existing BB58 demand while tying in the historically significant Marine Nationale shade of blue. This listing is a close to complete set, and includes the original inner and outer box, warranty […]
A few months ago, we analyzed the pros and cons of buying a watch from a pre-owned dealer versus a private seller. In addition to this, we also shared some interesting statistics: in general, a watch is 13% more expensive when purchased from a secondary market dealer compared to a private seller. Naturally, a follow-up […]
Longines Heritage Sector Dial (L2.8188.8.131.52) – $1,375 When Longines first showcased its Heritage Classic with a sector dial back in October of 2019, critics nearly universally praised it, with Hodinkee saying that it was one of the best looking Longines Heritage models to come out in the last few years. This listing comes complete with the watch on […]
By now, I’m sure that you’ve also noticed another 1970’s trend that has resurfaced. Yes, stainless steel sports watches with integrated bracelets are “in.” It’s to the point that giving five (or more) figures of your hard-earned money to Audmars Piguet or Patek Philippe to buy such a watch from them is considered a massive privilege. Luckily, for the rest of us, more affordable brands are starting to jump on the bandwagon. Tissot is one of the latest, with the (very faithful) reissue of its 1978 PRX model.
