As this deal is being released, Michael was supposed to have been about 3 hours into a flight over the Atlantic and headed to Switzerland. That was not to be! Instead he is leaving on Thursday and making a four country hop over 36 hours. Having spent a frustrating day at Jacksonville Airport (and a major shout out to the watch geek TSA peeps!), we think he has lost his mind! The never offered before Alexander Aigai Valjoux 7750 Vault Sale is ON! And he has priced this at a level that has NEVER been seen before! When Tim wakes up in the morning, it is going to blow his ugly socks off! You had better get in early before he is forced to pull this deal down! You could, literally, buy one of each and still spend less then most other outlets are selling this timepiece for!
Tim, Michael and the entire Talk About Watches team are very excited to announce that the watch brand Edmond has officially joined the ever increasing list of brands represented here on the site! In fact, today, they become the 21st watch brand and 25th brand over all to join the Talk About Watches family (and we keep telling you that we STILL aren’t done…look for even more announcements coming soon! Especially after our return from Baselworld 2018!). We are still working out the particulars as far as what all will be offered from Edmond. However, we will be meeting with the management team from the brand while Tim and Michael are in Switzerland at Baselworld next week. As soon as we have more information, we will make it available to you immediately.
What many people don't know is that Baselworld is more than just finished timepieces. It also has jewelry, software, tools, and many other categories. Including movements. With Baselworld 2018 rapidly approaching, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier (VMF) has just recently announced the release of their latest high-end movement. The Calibre Seed VMF 6710. It is yet another stunning movement by VMF and we have no doubt that it will be yet another success for the brand. However, in the case of VMF, there is much more below the surface that may be of interest to the watch collector. Let us take you on a tour of this incredible movement as well as all of the other related information that may be of benefit and interest to you.
This is not only the now “infamous” Invicta Subaqua Noma III (SAN III), it’s one of the scarcer builds with the “Stone Distressed” finish on the 50mm 316L steel case. This SAN III is further augmented with the gorgeous black mother of pearl (MOP) dial showcasing the Swiss made Ronda 5040.D chronograph quartz movement with quickset date and is protected by the Flame Fusion crystal. Both crown and pushers are screw down and the timepiece is tested to 500m water resistance. Presented on heavy 29mm chevron stitched leather strap the entire ensemble celebrates gunmetal and black hues which makes the colors of the MOP and the white accents absolutely pop on the wrist. Luminous markers and hands as well. Reserves yours through Talk About Watches for just $199.00, shipping included!
We hope that you will join us for the next edition of Talk About Watches Live! The show will begin at 10pm EST (Friday, 03/09/18) and will be live on the Talk About Watches Facebook page (info below). Tim's special guest will be Craig Hester. Together, they will be presenting two brands that you may not be familiar with. DELTAt and Meccanica Grezza. Both are amazing brands that you should be aware of and you can get a sneak peek of the watches that will be available by scrolling down. Please do note that pricing will not be available until just before the show starts (except for the 20 watch exotic wood collector box). If you can't join us live, we will be posting a replay of the show here as quickly as we are able to.
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.
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!
Sometimes you are just in the right place at the right time. In this case, it was the ability to pick up three (3) much sought after Swiss Made Valjoux 7750 automatic chronographs at an average discount of about $400 to $500 savings per watch. The only catch? We have exactly ONE (1) of each of them available and do not expect to have access to any further quantity moving forward. In the case of the "Kermit" Pro Diver, you are getting #2 of 200 in a Numbered Limited Edition run and you'll certainly never have an opportunity on that one ever! If any of these need to be in your collection, you must act quickly to ensure that you secure it before sellout!
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.
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!
