Welcome to the latest edition of our Pre-Basel 2018 reviews! This time we cover the Zenith Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 Flyback. We have put a TON of information into this for you. Not only do we cover the new watch, but the history of the model dating back to the "Cairelli" of the 1960s as well as the flyback functionality, the column wheel chronograph complication, the El Primero 405B movement itself, aging stainless steel yourself as a cool DIY project and much more! We think that everyone will find something new, interesting and informative in this post. Please have a look and let us know what you think!
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.
There’s the legendary Invicta Pro Diver (the model that really started it all for the brand) and within that category is the Elite Series. A heavy 45mm x 16mm build with both case and 24mm bracelet built of 316L steel. The bracelet boasts a diver style clasp. Beneath the Flame Fusion crystal is the focal point; a rich rose color textured dial, something most Pro Divers simply don’t have. The 316L stainless steel case has a screwed in case back and houses the ETA G10 1/10th second chronograph movement. The finished piece is tested to 100m water resistance. Note that at this huge discount it is not the strap but the BRACELET model! That alone makes this offer all the more important. Once sold out the deal is gone; reserve yours now!
The Chieftain is perfect for the watch collector that wants a dress watch but love complications to be included. As you may know, most dress watches tend to be understated and more simplistic when it comes to movement complications. But the Swiss made Alexander Chieftain brings the complications and functions full force! The 42mm case and 22mm three (3) piece link bracelet are crafted of 316L steel in your choice of finish (all stainless, yellow gold tone and rose gold tone). The highly textured dial and luminous hands exhibit beneath a sapphire crystal. The complications derive from a 13 jewel Swiss Ronda 5040.F movement and include chronograph, day of the week and month windows as well as an elegant outer track pointer date. Elegance meets Swiss complication and at this introductory price point bears serious consideration!
We have been able to negotiate another great deal from Alexander. This time on their stunning Regalia timepiece with either a sliver/white dial or a black dial. Each dial choice gives you a great dual guilloche pattern to go with the Swiss Made (as is the watch itself) Ronda 6004.D quartz movement (5 jewels). With a sapphire crystal, Super Luminova, 3 piece link bracelet and free shipping, the instant $550 savings makes this an outstanding value on a beautiful grab and go timepiece! This one should not be missed by anyone looking for a classically beautiful and clean Swiss Made timepiece!
If you or someone in your life is a "gear head", then the Gevril Alberto Ascari is a timepiece that you should seriously consider. Heavy automotive influence, especially from the racing industry, makes this Swiss Made beauty from Gevril even more desirable. From the dial design to the case design to the caseback/rotor design, this Swiss Made automatic celebrate the rich racing history of Alberto Ascari and has a presence and personality on the wrist that is second to none. Add to that our brand direct discounted pricing and free shipping and you have a tremendous value as well!
Some of you may recall Cavalli as the brand savvy enough to partner with watch legend Franck Muller! This particular watch is not from that pairing but the partnership speaks to the level that this company builds. 316L surgical steel sculpted case has a captivating rounded bowl style design with exaggerated lugs and contains the famous Swiss Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement, which is viewed via a “crescent” window in the back of the watch. The dial is a rich charcoal black with sharp whites and splashes of bright orange leaping out as wonderful contrast. Sapphire crystal of course, with the finished build tested to 5 ATM water resistance and presented on gorgeous genuine alligator strap, equipped with signed dual deployant clasp! The packaging is very impressive as well. Anyone looking to acquire a beautiful automatic chronograph that defines how stunning a dress sport concept can be will absolutely love this find, especially at this discount while they last!
When do you think you would be able to add a watch designed by master watchmaker and designer Franck Muller to your collection? Better yet, when do you think that you would be able to add a watch designed by master watchmaker and designer Franck Muller to your collection at a price of UNDER $450? Most of the time you would have to say "never". Tonight you can! A beautiful Swiss Made automatic in three (3) different executions with the ETA 2824-2 that have been designed by Franck Muller exclusively for the fashion icon Roberto Cavalli. Don't delay and make sure you secure your choice immediately and while we still have them available!
We are very happy to be able to bring the ISW Infinity Series Chronograph to you. Yes, it has a Swiss Made Ronda movement as well as an extremely low price point as you would would expect from Talk About Watches. But, we really have to ask you to pay some particularly close attention to the "putty grey" option (with the rose gold PVD plating and orange accents that just POP). It is an amazing look on the wrist with an equally amazing low price that is just right for the holidays.
