Alpina is a brand that came of age during two important events. First, aviation was just taking off (no pun intended) and wristwatches were just starting to become more popular with the general population and way from the more traditional pocketwatch. In the case of the Alpina Smartime Pilot, you are able to see a true vintage and military inspiration come through with just a few added modern enhancements. The 44mm case size (8mm thick) is an easy to wear mid-size timepiece. The military green dial serves as a fantastic background for the Swiss Made movement that includes a dual disc big date display. Even the aviation inspired caseback helps to set this timepiece apart. You don’t usually see Alpina discounted t this level. However, for a short time you can add this to your collection at a price that is going to be difficult to beat. Act quickly before it sells out!

As this deal is being released, Michael was supposed to have been about 3 hours into a flight over the Atlantic and headed to Switzerland. That was not to be! Instead he is leaving on Thursday and making a four country hop over 36 hours. Having spent a frustrating day at Jacksonville Airport (and a major shout out to the watch geek TSA peeps!), we think he has lost his mind! The never offered before Alexander Aigai Valjoux 7750 Vault Sale is ON! And he has priced this at a level that has NEVER been seen before! When Tim wakes up in the morning, it is going to blow his ugly socks off! You had better get in early before he is forced to pull this deal down! You could, literally, buy one of each and still spend less then most other outlets are selling this timepiece for!
For many collectors, specific watches are for certain occasions. Dress watches, sport watches, dive watches, etc. In the case of this ESQ by Movado Golf Watch, it is just a fun watch.A fitting choice for the golf enthusiast, this sporty ESQ watch shines in brushed stainless steel with goldtone accents. The midsized round steel case and expertly integrated bracelet have a contoured design for comfort and long-lasting wear. Beneath the virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal, the unique “dimpled” or golf ball patterned white dial showcases three goldtone hands and the ESQ by Movado logo. Subtle hour markers on the steel bezel enhance readability and allow a clean minimalist look on the dial. An outstanding timepiece as well as a bit of a conversation piece, this ESQ watch boasts Swiss quartz precision. It’s just fun!
If you are looking for a big, bold watch that will get attention on the wrist, then the Vostok-Europe Mriya is the watch for you.

This is a numbered limited edition (of 3,000) and this is the LAST chance you are going to have to pick one up. We got great pricing on these remaining pieces with an extra strap (total of 3 now) and the dive box. If this is for you, you need to act quickly!
The TW Steel TW313 is the first Special Edition timepiece produced by TW Steel on behalf of Dutch DJ sensation, Mitchell Niemeyer. Niemeyer has been a brand ambassador for TW Steel since 2013. This stunning new model, the first 45mm size with a canteen style crown protector steel bracelet edition, truly reflects the energy and the passion Mitchell brings to his music productions. Also unique to the piece is the exclusive dial, which mirrors Mitchells favorite tattoo design featuring prominent stars. These stars have been subtly incorporated into the dial, which also stands out courtesy of titanium colored horizontal stripes. Along with the orange accents, this truly makes the dial pop and catch the eye!
In the latest edition of our Pre-Basel 2018 series, we cover the new Nord Zeitmaschine CROSSNROLL. We didn't think that Daniel Nebel (the owner of Nord Zeitmaschine) could out do himself. After getting an email from him in preparation for the meeting that Tim and Michael have with him this week in Switzerland, we totally stand corrected. If his new CROSSNROLL doesn't blow your mind, nothing will! If you do nothing else, please do scroll down in the article and check out the videos of this amazing custom made timepiece in action! It really has to be seen to be believed!

The Victorinox Swiss Army Officer's watch owes its name to the first knives that were given to officers of the Swiss Army from 1891 onwards. Combining tradition and modernity, its curved lines evoke the rounded contours of the Swiss Army knife. Quality, masculinity, harmony and refinement characterize this collection. This particular timepiece utilizes two exclusive colors that have never been produced before: medium grey and anthracite grey. Below the sapphire crystal, the textured dial and offset sub-dials help to draw the eye to the timepiece. Given the highly discounted Hotness Pick price with free shipping, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
Talk About Watches is very happy to be able to report that the watch brand Pramzius has launched their Kickstarter campaign for the much anticipated "Berlin Wall" timepiece as a follow up to their debut watch the Trans Siberian. For those that don't know, Pramzius is a brand that is owned and founded by our very good friend Craig Hester. Craig is a long time friend of both Tim and Michael and he has also been a long time supported of Talk About Watches and what we are trying to do with our site. Unlike many in the watch industry, Craig is not a guy trying to make money off of watches. He is a true watch guy that just happens to be able to make his living from this passion for timepieces that we all share. We fully recommend and endorse Craig personally, the Pramzius watch brand and this stunning new Berlin Wall timepiece. And, we also encourage everyone to support him on Kickstarter and be a part of introducing this stunning timepiece to the world.
