That's quite the homologation.


If they made a bronze flieger with no seconds hand, a He escape valve, on a pin and collar bracelet with fake rivets, a bronze relief count down bezel, a distressed dial with faux aged lume, and a cyclops over a roulette date, with at least 5 lines of text, in 45+mm, I think I might have a stroke.

Moser have form in creating horological mashups. I'd suggest you avoid their press releases for Baselworld next year! :D

Has the Rock embraced the trend of wearing smaller watches? No, that's a 46 mm IWC Big Pilot's Perpetual Calendar! ???

I got distracted by another Blancpain today, the Bathyscaphe Day Date 70s.

"Blancpain Bathyscaphe Seventies"

It's a steel cased piece, so a bit heavier than the titanium Big Date I saw the other day. The dial looks fantastic, I'm not so sure about the day-date functionality, though I do like the Bathyscaphe Annual Calendar, which adds another window. The strap is a distressed leather, and is great.

Haven't worn this one in a while.  I've always thought fully lumed dials should be more popular.

UTS Münich 500M

500M? The model isn't on their page...?

I've been intrigued by UTS for a while. Quite the piece of tooling...

Just a heads up that the Swatch Group will be announcing their new models this week.

During Baselworld they had a private event for dealers, and now it's the media's turn.

Incoming (S)watch porn! :D

To the surprise of absolutely no-one, Blancpain are doing a couple of Fifty Fathoms limited editions. @Giles might want to skip this post. :-X

The first is the Barakuda, and is based on a sixties design. It reminds me a bit of the Seventies model they did last year, without the day complication, and with a larger date window for @mclaincausey's presbyopic eyes.

"Blancpain Barakuda"

The second is the Naggers Nageurs de Combat, which is "inspired" by a fifties watch worn by French divers.

"Blancpain Nageurs de Combat"

More surprising is the Air Command, which is a reissue of a pilot's chronograph from the fifties.

"Blancpain Air Command"

I like the Barkuda and I like the position of the date window - time to flog a couple of GMT Masters?

In another surprise to absolutely nobody, Omega unveiled a fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11 Speedmaster. I'm not convinced by the "Buzz Aldrin exiting the lander" subdial.

"Omega Speedmaster 50th Anniversary"

There's a very orange Planet Ocean chronograph, which looks great on the tricolour NATO strap.

"Omega Planet Ocean Chronograph"

A new world timer.

"Omega World Timer"

My favourite is the De Ville Tresor in steel. Shame that it's got a date window.

"Omega Tresor Steel"

If the GMTs are living in a safe and you'd wear the Barakuda everyday, I would.
