Hej, upbeat campers, it’s time during the current Week in Watches for July 6, 2019.
This week, I don’t truly have a rant-worthy topic before getting into This Week in Watches. It’s not been too hot here in Germany (sorry, Serbians, you are feeling it right now) and the ground is stable (do take care, SoCal occupants), so what’s there to mention? Well, what about this? We currently have e-Scooters wandering around in Frankfurt. That’s not a ton different than some other cities, but damn, the clients of these things don’t know what they’re doing quite yet. It’s astounding, but true, that one cannot text while utilizing one of these lest they wish to wind up as a piece of side of the road burger – but they’re trying. It makes me think that either G-Shocks or those Victorinox watches might just be the best thing to manage this thriving trend that indeed gives a gesture to humanity’s expanding lassitude. And there’s my rant…
The Longines Legend Diver – For Ladies?
So, perhaps my rant on This Week in Watches isn’t over as I got news from Longines that they will currently offer a 36mm Legend Diver that’s pointed towards the female market. Now, to be reasonable, in addition to one model that conveys the exemplary vintage dark dial, there is another with mother of pearl. But, what gets me is that watch brands want to categorize these watches into male and female models. Sure, a 50mm+ watch might be worth characterizing as a men’s piece while a 30mm and underneath piece is somewhat unmistakably positioned for ladies. But, at 36mm, the dark Legend Diver potentially answers a worry that I, for one, had with the existing, 42mm form .
Namely, that unique piece was just too damn enormous for me and the hauls apparently continue for miles. So, Longines, possibly just choose to deliver a 36mm watch and consider it a 36mm watch or, be challenging, and show both types of people wearing it! Case in point: both my significant other and I wear 36mm Datejusts. Moving on, this new more modest (see, that wasn’t hard) Legend Diver is useful for 300 meters of water resistance, contains a date, and the ETA A20.LII automatic. It’s accessible on a Milanaise network band and leather. On strap, the watch retails for 1,850 Euros and 2,080 on bracelet regardless of which dial you choose. It’s a cool watch and I think it functions admirably for both sexes. For more information, head to the authority .
Hamilton Ventura Quartz Chrono
I have a soft spot for the Hamilton Ventura, the brand’s somewhat triangular watch that debuted back in 1957 with wild styling and an electric movement. another quartz Ventura was one of my first extravagant watch repurchases in the mid 90’s, so there’s a tie with me. Today, we get a gander at the quartz Ventura Chrono in some different structures – or so I think. My eBay tinkering showed me a few dark dial, steel case models effectively in existence, so maybe models, for example, these gold-plated editions are new. Whatever the situation, we have a 1,025 CHF model on an extending bracelet to keep things 50’s. The watch estimates 32.3mm x 50.3mm. Have a glance at them here on the .
Tissot Celebrates 20 Years of the T-Touch
You know you’re in for a portion of genuine PR when the German message starts off with “Greetings, stunning Watch and Outdoor Friends”. And what we have here on This Week in Watches is a celebration of the Tissot T-Touch’s 20th commemoration called the Expert Solar II Swiss Edition. At 45mm and in titanium, this watch doesn’t appear to vary functionally from typical T-Touch’s, but it adds some interesting tone (earthy colored) and a Swiss dial design. What you’re taking a gander at on the top portion of the dial are Edelweiss blossoms and something propelled by the shirts that mountain men of Switzerland apparently wear (no compelling reason to lecture me, Swiss perusers, google took me to some interesting pictures of wrestling called Schwingen where contestants where these shirts alongside lederhosen are worn). If iconography summoning thoughts of Swiss culture are attractive to you and earthy colored is your shading, then the Swiss Edition could be your watch. At 995 Euros, take a glance at more information on the .
Breguet Turns up the Wick for Only Watch
Only Watch is a charity event and auction benefitting Muscular dystrophy. It’s held in Monaco and this year will be on November 9th. 50 watches will be auctioned off with 99% of the returns making a beeline for charity – you can see all the watches . Some brands telephone it in a bit with a shading change to the dial or a slightly different case material, but Breguet has created an erratic stunner for the event. The Type 20 brings back a plan that’s notable to collectors. First gave to French Air Force pilots in 1954, the Type 20 featured a manual breeze Valjoux 222 with a flyback complication. This more current piece has a Valjoux 235, which is of a similar heredity and contains some renovated parts. At 38.3mm in diameter and with a rotating bezel, this steel piece is basically lovely. The guesstimate on what this Breguet will sell for is 31,000 – 45,000, which I think is low. Head to for their public statement and for specification detail on the watch.
Singer for Only Watch
Singer additionally sent us information on their Track 1 for Only Watch. The authority specs of the watch can be found , but let’s hit some high points. The 43mm dark steel case just might be the star of the show in light of the fact that it’s Damascus and was created in Sweden by the pair behind ; it glimpses fantastic. Inside, there’s the Caliber AgenGraphe 6361 automatic chronograph movement and it powers Singer’s remarkable fringe style of showing time, chronograph hours and minutes, and seconds. Only Watch suggests an estimate fo 40,000 – 49,000 Euros, let’s see on November 9th. For additional on Singer Reimagined Watches, head to their .
That’s all we’ve got during the current Week in Watches – have a great weekend!
