REPORT – IAAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS AND SEIKO TIMING

Since 1985, Seiko is the official timer of the International Association of Athletics Federations, or IAAF in short.

LIP MACH 2000 CHRONOGRAPH BY ROGER TALLON – A TRUE DESIGN ICON

The watch industry has its own superstar designers. The first name that comes to mind for most of us is of course Gérald Genta. You also have a bunch of design studios, like Giugiaro, who has collaborated with a number of watch brands (Seiko Astron GPS for example). However, there are a handful of names in industrial ...

TRAVELING WITH THE NEW ORIS BIG CROWN PROPILOT WORLDTIMER

TRAVELING WITH THE NEW ORIS BIG CROWN PROPILOT WORLDTIMER

Roughly a month ago, Oris reached out to us and asked if we’d be interested in testing a new watch prior to the lifting of a press embargo (yes, you’re looking at a watch released “out of cycle” – not at Baselworld). Naturally, we answered affirmatively to the rhetorical question and the mystery watch was on its way. ...

BREITLING CHRONOSPACE A56012.01 – 52MONDAYZ, WEEK #33

And this week I’m going quartz again. A quartz watch from a brand which isn’t directly my favourite, however from which one or two models always had my interest.

WATCHES AND GOLF

I turned 40 this year and decided to finally pursue my long time wish to play golf. I have played field hockey as a kid and teenager so have some sense for ball sports.
