In our second Pre-Basel 2018 installment, we present for your review the Grand Seiko 25th Anniversary Limited Edition timepiece. We attempt to lay out for you every possible detail of this amazing watch from the "zaratsu" polishing technique to the incredibly robust and complex movement inside of it, the 9F83A. We do hope that you'll have a look. In a world where quartz watches are often seen as cheap buys that end up being thrown away in a short time period (and most of them are!), this Grand Seiko proves that there is still a lot of life and watchmaking craftsmanship left in them. This is truly a timepiece that can be passed down from generation to generation!
After being on the chopping block for quite some time, it was recently announced that US based Tourneau (recognized as the largest US-based luxury watch retailer) has been sold to the Bucherer Group for an undisclosed sum. This includes approximately 30 brick and motar stores nationwide as well as an established eCommerce or online presence. To be clear, this is not the watch company Carl F. Bucherer but rather the parent company. While it is not clear at this time what this will mean for the US based watch market, it is unavoidable that large scale changes are coming.
Are you a watch geek and a fan of the Eagles and still celebrating their underdog Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots? If so, then Timex may have something that you are interested in. They have just recently released their Eagles Super Bowl LII watch as a part of their NFL Tribute Collection of timepieces. At the price point they are offering, it makes this very easy for just about anyone to get into their collection. Additionally, it could make the perfect gift for that Eagles fan in your life.
With the Baselworld 2018 show coming up towards the end of March in Basel, Switzerland, there are many new and interesting watches being announced. Tim and Michael will be checking out as many of these as possible. We wanted to take the opportunity to share some of these new announcements with you in this series of posts.
