Bell & Ross Unveiled Vintage BR-V2 Steel Heritage Ahead Of Basel 2018

Bell & Ross has been turning out quite a number of new models in recent years, but being a non-industry specific blog, we did not follow up with every single piece, but this duo here is something a little different from what the French watchmaker has to offer. The duo, namely BR V2-92 and BR V2-94, is what we would like call “same, same, but different.” Same because, it is has what makes the Bell & Ross’ design so endearing, i.e. the aerospace-inspired aesthetic. Different because, it has a much weightier vintage flair than most of the watchmaker’s previous design. Continue reading Bell & Ross Unveiled Vintage BR-V2 Steel Heritage Ahead Of Basel 2018

One look, you know you are looking at a beauty. Continue reading This 70-ish Watch Is So Pretty That We Have To Post More Images Of It

CASIO’S NEW EDIFICE Timepieces Offer Accurate Time Thru Your Smartphone

Most traditional timepieces suffer from the same problem and that’s time accuracy. Some watchmakers get around this by designing watches that syncs with either GPS or atomic clock, both of which Casio has explored, but now the Japanese watchmaker has gotten smarter with its new EDIFICE timepieces, EQB501. Not because it uses Bluetooth SMART, but because that short range wireless connectivity module there, together with Casio’s Mobile Link Technology, allows the watch to connect to a smartphone at a push of a button.

Oceania: The First And Only Wooden Watch That’s Waterproof To 10ATM

It is true that wood floats on water, but somehow, wood and water don’t quite mix, which makes waterproofing wrist watches a tricky art. That’s not to say it can’t be done; it can, but limited to just ‘water resistant’. So, it is not quite for wood-loving scuba divers. However, a young watch company by the name of Pacific Standard Time Company wants to change that. The outfit’s first timepiece, Oceania Wood Chronograph Watch, is billed as the first and only wooden watch that’s waterproof to 10ATM (100 meters, or 330 feet).

Breitling’s First Smartwatch Takes On A Conservative Approach

For luxury watch makers, hopping onto the smartwatch bandwagon is like threading on a thin line. Understandably, they have their traditions to uphold. TAG Heuer may have ignored the traditions and went full-on with its first smartwatch, but Swiss watchmaker Breitling has opted for a more conservative approach. The company’s first smartwatch, dubbed Breitling Exospace B55, looks just like another conventional Breitling analog/digital chronograph. In fact, the company didn’t even refer it to as a smartwatch; it is calling it a connected watch. But it is a smartwatch, alright. It does pretty much what a smartwatch does, pulling in notifications like texts, emails and calls, from your smartphone, but with one major difference: it does not have a full LCD display.
