Tim, Michael and the entire Talk About Watches team are very excited to announce that the watch brand CT Scuderia has officially joined the ever increasing list of brands represented here. In fact, today, they become the 20th watch brand and 24th brand over all to join the Talk About Watches family (and we STILL aren’t done...look for even more announcements coming soon!). CT Scuderia will have their own brand area here on Talk About Watches (or a "boutique" as we refer to it) and, when ready, will also be doing some special deals with us that you’ll be able to take advantage of. Keep an eye open for this as we should have their products loaded to the site soon. Work is already under way to get everything that we have access to loaded as well as set up an introductory deal at what we think are going to be some of the lowest prices seen!
Panerai recently released a new version of the Luminor Base Logo 3 Days Acciaio (PAM775) as well as two (2) other models in the line as well as the Base Marina. All six versions of these new 44mm models utilize the in-house P.6000 mechanical movement that replaces the ETA/Unitas 6497. In this post, we highlight all 3 versions of the Base Logo as well as the Marina Logo and the P.6000 movement. These are all great new entry points into the Panerai brand and are sure to be hit with with old and new collectors alike.
One of the most important objects a watch collector can have is a real watch box. It helps keep your collection healthy like no other method can short of storing each watch in the box it came in. That just isn’t practical. This watch box isn’t just nice; it’s extraordinary! Many of us have luxury watch collections that are important to us. Now take care of them properly via a huge deal on one of the nicest luxury watch boxes we’ve encountered. Measuring 18.25 x 9.75 x 8, this all wood construction weighs in at over 11 lbs. The padded base makes this show piece safe for the finest of furniture. The soft leatherette interior is color matched and design to protect your collection from scratches and scars while organizing them properly. Two levels of ten slots each total out 20 watches. And note that each slot handles a watch UP TO 62MM! And check this out; rotate the pillow 90 degrees and you can safely store 70mm! But the real showcase is the exterior. Not one, but FIVE genuine exotic veneers are used! Ebony, burl, ice wood, lace wood, and rosewood make up all five sides of the box. We’ve been authorized to offer a SET OF TWO! 40 watches stored properly in showcase luxury. This set retails for $1050.00, but through TAW you can reserve yours now for just $399.00, SHIPPING INCLUDED. The shipping is especially important as the weight is north of 25 lbs! One is available for $279.00, also with shipping included.

The Bulova "Devil Diver" will make a debut at Baselworld 2018 in March. And, we have to say, it is absolutely stunning! There isn't much info out there on this watch (yet). But, we present everything to you that we can. Including how it came to be as well as cover the Bulova "Surfboard" and "Bullhead" chronograps. Please do enjoy the latest installment of our Pre-Basel 2018 series and also please use the commenting system located at the bottom of the page to let us know what you think as well as what brands and watches you want to see Tim and Michael cover when they are at Baselworld next month.
Edox always seems to have something up their sleeve (no pun intended) and it is no different with the latest version of the Sharkman 1000m Swiss Made diver. The beautiful blue dial on a traditional diver timepiece platform is sure to turn heads and the use of a quartz movement makes it not only a daily "grab and go" timepiece, but an affordable option for most collectors. The line up for Baselworld 2018 continues to grow.
Glashutte Original has announced the release of a new Senator Cosmopolite for Baselworld 2018. It is a stunningly beautiful timepiece in the tradition of German productions, primarily the 3/4 plate on the movement (the in-house 89-02) and a double swan neck regulator. This timepiece is perfect for the frequent world traveler as it supports a amazing selection of 36 time zones, including those with 1/2 hour and 3/4 hour off sets. New to the swan neck regulator? Not to worry as we have you fully covered there and show you all that you would want or need to know about it, what it does and how it does it. Sure to be a hit in Basel in just about a month!

The first thing to mention is that this is a true GEVRIL, NOT a GV2. We like GV2’s but to be sure, Gevril is the high end mothership. So when we can get a factory direct deal on the mothership everyone should take notice and act! This Swiss made 316L steel build is 47mm, unusually large for what Gevril has historically built. It houses a Swiss R&S decorated automatic movement showcased via both exhibition back and semi-skeletonized dial which is elegantly textured, complimenting the Breguet style hands beneath sapphire crystal. The bracelet features a dual deployant clasp and the finished piece is tested to 5 ATM and numbered to only 500 limited edition. We’ve confirmed from Gevril that the silver lists for $3,795.00, the goldtone for $3,895.00, and the two tone rose for $3,995.00. We are pleased to offer these pieces in both limited quantity and time for just $499.00 with full factory warranty, shipping included! This offer will go fast; we highly recommend reserving yours now!
The Stuhrling Original Metropolis is another great example of a well made, good looking and extremely affordable timepieces from a brand that many of you know and already own. Join our own Tim Temple as he takes you through a detailed review of the Metropolis. This is a timepiece the he personally owns and has in his collection. So, his experiences with this watch are first hand. The short story on this one? It is a timepiece that certainly deserves a serious look and a place in your collections as well. Enjoy and let us know what you think!
