In the latest installment of our Pre-Basel 2018 series, we present the new Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Limited Edition. A beautiful watch from a very well known and respected brand among watch collectors all over the world. This new timepiece uses the also new Hamilton H-21-Si movement (which is very special) and is also a COSC certified chronometer. In addition to breaking the watch down for you, we dig into the new H-21-Si movement and also what it means to be COSC certified. Please enjoy and leave a comment to let us know what you think about the watch and our Pre-Basel 2018 series.
Factory direct relationships often pay off. In this case XOSkeleton has delivered on some “new old stock”. These have never been sold and are literally out of the vault. Generation III XOSkeleton is the series built during the brand association with Daniel Mink, who some of you will know from his brand, Renato. These 50mm builds are built in very small numbered limited editions (note the numbers in the selection) and crafted from surgical grade 316L stainless steel. A sapphire crystal on each along with solid link bracelet featuring dual deployant clasp. At the core is the Swiss Ronda 7004.P quartz movement, which delivers a dual disc quickset big date as well as day of the week in retrograde! The finished work is tested to 10 ATM water resistance. These originally listed at $1295.00. But Talk About Watches is able to present these for just $229.00, shipping included! As is usually the case with new old stock, when these are gone they’re gone for good. So please act quickly!
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 second generation XOSkelton (Generation II) is one of the most requested watch lines for us. Especially with the resurgence of the current generation Superlative Stars. These 52mm Ocean Warriors are nearly impossible to get, much less unworn with full warranty. This is the generation built from 904L steel. The only other brand we know of doing this on any regular basis is ROLEX! These two are heavily layered in 18k yellow gold, with glare resistant sapphire crystal, textured dial, Swiss quartz moon phase movement (not an AM/PM indicator) and perfect micro-writing on both outer track and case. Choose between blue or black dial accent. Bracelet fits 8.5” or below. There will be some light shop wear on these but to get them this close to factory fresh (they are literally from the vault) this is a collectors find and a steal at $399.00, shipping included! We have ONE (1) of each! Act quickly!
Confused? DON’T BE! This watch is identical to model 20976 that has sold out. The ONLY differences are in the case back that indicated that this model is for the Carnival Breeze ship and the total number of the limited edition production run. Other than that, they are identical. Please note that we only have a handful available with no knowledge of any remaining inventory. If you missed out on the other version, make sure you act quickly on this one!
Many collectors don’t know that Invicta builds exclusive limited edition watches dedicated not only to a cruise line, but to the individual ships, available only while on the cruise. Well we have a deal for you; we’ve located a handful of the one slated for the Royal Caribbean “Freedom of the Seas”. 48mm x 15mm case with flame fusion crystal and unidirectional bezel, built to 200m water resistance, housing a Swiss chronograph movement, and note that this is the BRACELET model! It’s been difficult trying to pin down the MSRP on this one given it’s very narrow distribution. But we’re quite certain it was substantially more than $99.99! Any collector, especially those specifically wanting the “plate” design on the back of this series should seize this immediately!
Tonight is a very special night with the launch of the Gevril GV2 La Luna Limited Edition Flash Sale! The price that you can get this Swiss Made automatic for ranges from about 50% to 72% less than what we could find on the interwebs! It includes a MOP dial, sapphire crystals, Super Luminova and MORE! For the dollars spent, we think this is the best bargain we have offered you so far. Just remember, 3 days or sellout...then it is off the table.
