Please do check out this post so that you can stay up to date with us. Miss a show? Not to worry! As always, we will have a replay of the show available for you here on the website as quickly as we are able to process it and get it uploaded.

Breitling is a watch manufacturer well known for their thermocompensated and COSC quartz timepieces. Now, via the new Breitling Exospace B55 Yachting edition, they meet that level as well as adding smartphone connectivity/pairing (via Bluetooth Low-Energy technology) and a massively feature rich timepiece via the in-house caliber B55 COSC certified movement. In a slightly larger 46mm case, many will be happy that it has been done in titanium (TI) to save on weight and is also available on a rubber strap as well. Learn more inside!

Beginning in 2013, ETA began making some much needed improvements to their quartz line of movements with the introduction of the PreciDrive and PowerDrive technologies that were introduced. At Baselworld 2018, the new HeavyDrive technology was debuted. While not a new movement per se, this is a technology that is achieved via a new integrated circut (IC) and will not only allow designers and manufacturers to use heavier hands on these quartz movements, but also provide up to a 200% increase against shocks to the movement that would normally knock the hands out of alignment and cause a loss of accuracy. Here's what you need to know about this new technology!
Arnold & Son is a brand that is well know for their contemporary haute horlogerie timepieces. The Time Pyramid (Black Edition) is a new model in their existing Time Pyramid line and it does not disappoint in any respect. The in-house A&S1615 mechanical movement with high end decoration and an implementation of a dual power reserve indicator (90 hours total) makes a bold and beautiful statement on the wrist. We do hope you'll have a look and learn more about this incredible new timepiece.
