The “Monolith” is comparative, however has a dot shot impeccable case with dark DLC covering and a coordinating dark dial.  The valuing on the Monolith will be 1,500 CHF and creation will be restricted to 125 pieces for each year.  I’ve become partial to MING’s watches and these are no exception.  With ties from Jean Rousseau Paris, a calfskin pocket from Studio Koji Sato, and bundling by Swisspack, the brand likewise centers around all the details.  Production is finished by a division of Schwarz Etienne, so there’s a dash of haute horlogerie blended in here as well.  At these costs, it’s all very compelling if the design strikes your fancy.  More details are accessible on the .


DOXA educated us that its new SUB 200 has likewise been assigned as a finalist in the 2019 Challenge classification at the GPHG.  We showed you the restricted release commemoration model of this watch in an article at some point around Baselworld 2019, yet I don’t accept we had photos of the ordinary sequential creation model.  Well, we presently have pictures and I like this model much more than the restricted version.  It’s cleaner and a straightforward jumper that will be accessible on one or the other elastic or a globules of-rice wristband once it delivers in November.  The SUB 200 is a 42mm pure piece with 200 meters of water obstruction and an ETA 2824-2.  Here, we see it in Sharkhunter pretense, however DOXA – as it will with the entirety of their watches – will offer it in six diverse dial colors.  At 990 Euros, this is a shot across the bow at numerous brands, for example, Seiko, Mido, and Certina.  Nicely done…  More information is accessible on the – at last traversable – .

Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de vache 1955

Whoa, Vacheron escaped an outright stonker this week with the Historiques Cornes de vache 1955.  The watch we are taking a gander at is a reissue of the brand’s first water safe chronograph and is authoritatively known as reference 5000H/000A-B582.  The first is an exceptionally collectible piece dressed in gold and the reissues have so far just been accessible in this valuable metal or platinum, however Vacheron decided to give us another form in spotless steel.

At 38.5mm and just 10.9mm thick, the horned 1955 contains the perfectly decorated in-house handwinding 1142 movement.   It’s visible through a presentation back and it is definitely worth viewing.  A brief counter is on the furthest right register while running seconds are on the left.  The dark dial is enhanced with 18K white gold lists and hands.  At 41,200 Euros, the freshest 1955 isn’t cheap, however it’s an outright beauty.  The most up to date Cornes de vache is currently on .

H.Moser Pioneer Perpetual Calendar MD

H. Moser sent us expression of a couple fresh out of the box new perpetual calendars donning new movements.  Available in one or the other red or blue with 42.8mm spotless cases, these watches contain a great deal of detail.  It’s hard not to see the enormous day/date show at 3:00 (and I’m not completely sure I’m on board as Moser’s dials are ordinarily the exemplification of straightforwardness) in combination with the little seconds at 6:00 and power save at 9:00.  There’s a ton happening here.

Technically speaking, Moser designed its new handwound HMC 808 development to consider date changes to be made whenever of day without mischief to the movement.  The new development additionally has a bewildering 7 days least force hold and jump year cycle pointer that’s obvious on the backside.  Oh, did I notice that with its lumed hands and 120 meters of water opposition that this watch can take a relative beating?

As I referenced, I’m not 100% sold on the feel of this piece, however you can’t deny Moser’s specialized advances and their feeling of adventure.  At 39,900, these aren’t modest, yet they’re definitely unique!  Whether you pick blue or red, just 50 bits of each will be made.  More data is accessible on the .

Seiko sent us information on Presage models with veneer dials and Spring Drive 5R65 movements.  We’ve seen various finish dialed Presage pieces (counting this stunning blue piece from a couple of years back that I checked on ), however this is the first occasion when we get one with Spring Drive.  The watches are accessible in either a dark (SNR039J1) or white dial (SNR037J1) variation, yet both contain the Didoni textual style that we’ve seen previously and the dazzling good old hands that Seiko utilizes on these models.  All are handmade by Seiko’s Mitsuru Yokosawa and a little group of gifted craftsmen.  At 40mm in width and 13.1mm in thickness, these new Presage pieces come with spotless cases with super-hard coating.  furthermore, to the date at 3:00, we likewise get the mark Spring Drive power save scale at 8:00.

Little Lange 1 Moon Phase “25th Anniversary”

Last yet not least, we have the ninth of 10 in the arrangement of the Lange 1’s 25th Anniversary pieces.  This time, we have the 36.8mm “Little Lange”.  My not exactly ideal information on German may make them consider this one the “Lange-chen”, yet that would almost certainly bring about either an eye roll or laughter.  Either way, this is, indeed, a lovely watch with its white gold case, silver dial and blue detailing.  Reference 182.066 highlights the handwound L121.2 and contains a Moon Phase work alongside the Big Date, power hold marker, hours, minutes and seconds.  At a thin 9.5mm in thickness, this is most likely the model I’d decide for my more modest wrist.  Now, I simply need to come up with the 42,300 Euros…  More data can be found on .
