It’s This Week in Watches for August 31, 2019 and we have heaps of information today!
Well, if a week ago’s This Week in Watches got you down because of the deficiency of information, at that point this week could actually over-burden your senses. It appears summer is genuinely finished and the watch companies have reacted by opening the flood dams. Or, almost certain, it’s been a half year since Basel. Alright, we should venture into some new watch news!
Timex Navi XL
First up on This Week in Watches is another one from Timex, the Navi XL. Inspired by the brand’s first jumper style watch, the Navi XL is a 41mm quartz-controlled watch with a pivoting bezel. It’s water-impervious to 100 meters, however has a snap case back, so this truly is all the more a games watch than a genuine diver. What I like about it is the hour hand that contains an open circle that acts as an oculus. The motivation behind this opening is to see the 24-hour track that runs along the internal parts of the fundamental indexes. It makes for a one of a kind and clean look.
Plus, at 119 Euros, you can choose from a couple of various styles on nylon get through straps. If 41mm is too enormous, there’s a 38mm adaptation is accessible too that has been available to be purchased for quite a while now. If this were an automatic, I think I’d be a purchaser, however the quartz presumably makes for a thin and comfortable day by day wearer. More data is accessible on the official .
Corum Admiral AC-ONE 45 Chronograph
Corum is a brand we haven’t heard from in some time. But, here they are with a recently refreshed 45mm chronograph model that flaunts developmental, yet new styling. The AC-ONE 45 has a 45mm case in one or the other titanium or rose gold and is water-impervious to 100 meters. Inside, the CO 132 automatic powers the watch. This is an ETA base with a Dubois Depraz module. Corum reveals to us that they’ve modernized the case styling while at the same time keeping some trademark qualities of the Admiral that have been around for decades.
For model, the nautical banners that once overwhelmed the dial are still here, yet they’re more inconspicuous in this design. Whether with a white or black dial (both with contrasting sub dials), the AC-ONE contains a “Grenadier fendu” theme that’s clearly hand-worked by Corum artisans. The watches come on black vulcanized elastic ties, however we are informed that titanium or rose gold bracelet alternatives are on the way. The pricing I have is in USD and the titanium costs $9,900 and $18,000 for the rose gold. More data is accessible on the .
Tissot Excellence Gold
Tissot sent expression of some fine looking 18K gold dress watches this week for people called the Excellence Gold.
On the women’s side, we have a 32mm quartz piece that is just 6mm in thickness. The dial comes in blue mother of pearl (1,860 Euros) or dim earthy colored (1,830 Euros) and has 48 little jewels around the border to mean the minutes.
For the gentlemen’, we have a 39.8mm measurement piece in either dim blue or earthy colored on leather. Inside, the Powermatic 80 automatic is effectively utilized and is fortunately here without a date function. Pricing will be 3,050 Euros. More data can be found on the official .
Certina DS-1 Big Date 60th Anniversary
Balazs will probably have a more top to bottom article on our next piece, however we’ll at any rate notice the new Certina DS-1 Big Date 60th Anniversary. We have a 41mm measurement impeccable watch with a lattice bracelet with butterfly closure. Intriguingly, the dial is done in a staggering “Certina” green and has a “major date” window at 6:00. Some chromed subtleties are applied to the dial and it makes for an extraordinary look. Certina worked the Powermatic 80 to add this date functionality and keeping in mind that I regularly don’t accomplish for that, it’s remarkably cool here. Add a sapphire crystal, DS (twofold security) fixing, and we come to a water resistance of 100 meters. Certina calls this a special release, so I’d accept they’ll be moderately available. Pricing should come in around the 895 Euro market. The DS-1 is as of now on the official .
Singer Track1 London Edition
We received word from Singer that they’ve created a special run of 50 pieces of their Track1 chronograph to celebrate the kickoff of , another shop in Mayfair (London) associated with the auction place of the equivalent name. Singer watches will be sold there just as different watches from private exhibitions. The 43mm automatic titanium chronograph London Edition has an extraordinary dull blue dial and matching strap. For 45,000 CHF, the Track1 London Edition is currently accessible for order. We expect more data on the soon.
Parmigiani Tonda 1950
Parmigiani uncovered refreshed Tonda 1950 models. These pieces include 39.1mm 18K rose gold cases and the in-house automatic PF708 movement. At just 4mm thick, the micro rotor development actually figures out how to add a moon stage complication, date and little seconds. The first of the two new models contains a dial actually made of slate. It’s totally staggering in my view and retails for 28,100 Euros.
The second piece is functionally comparable, however contains jewels on its bezel (almost 2ct) and a mother of pearl dial. it retails for 37,000 Euros. Information is now accessible on the Parmigiani .
Folks, that is totally supportive of This Week in Watches. Enjoy your weekend!
