Timepiece Tuesday: Zenith Teams Up with Mr Porter

Timepiece Tuesday: Zenith Teams Up with Mr Porter

Utter the brand name “Zenith” to some people and they might think you’re talking about a television from the ’80s or ’90s. But those in the know will recognize the name as the legendary horology house that’s best known for making one of the first automatic chronograph watches, ever, the El Primero.

And today, Zenith and Mr Porter have just unveiled their new partnership, making it easier than ever to become a Zenith-wearer...

Timepiece Tuesday: Nomos Glashütte Neomatik

Timepiece Tuesday: Nomos Glashütte Neomatik

On first glance, the stuff from culty watchmaker Nomos Glashütte looks like your typical minimalist-designed wristwear out of Europe.

But take a look under any of their neo-Bauhaus-y dials and you’ll find an in-house movement with some serious horology street cred. And now they’ve just one-upped themselves with a new, slimmer movement that’s resulted in 10 new watches.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we.

Timepiece Tuesday: Pebble Time Round

Timepiece Tuesday: Pebble Time Round

We know. If this keeps up, we might have to change this weekly series to “Smartwatch Tuesday.”

Which really doesn’t have as nice of a ring to it, but here goes...

Another new smartwatch has just been unveiled: the Pebble Time Round. You may remember Pebble from our post way back when they kicked off the whole smartwatch-that-looks-like-a-real-watch trend. But this time the watch is round and claims to be the thinnest and lightest smartwatch around.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we.

Timepiece Tuesday: Your Update on the Apple Watch Update

Timepiece Tuesday: Your Update on the Apple Watch Update

We broke down the new Apple Watch on the day of its announcement, and since then the consensus has been: it’s not quite there yet.

Now, five months after its release, they’ve unveiled the hotly anticipated second-generation operating system, watchOS 2, promising vast improvements on all fronts. That probably still doesn’t mean everyone should run out and get one just yet, but...

Here is what the watchOS 2 updates do mean for the Apple Watch:

Timepiece Tuesday: Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon

Timepiece Tuesday: Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon

Today, you’ll find most novelty watches in a gag gift shop or the sale bin, but there was once a time when tongue-in-cheek horology was celebrated as libertine art—and subsequently banned by the conservatives.

It was a more civilized time, to which Richard Mille’s RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon is harking.

And like most of Richard Mille’s six-figure creations, there’s more than meets the eye.

Timepiece Tuesday: Going Digital

Timepiece Tuesday: Going Digital

Wearing a digital watch is widely considered blasphemous in the world of watch enthusiasm, but that doesn’t mean we should overlook them entirely.

In fact, when those folks throw around “tool watch” as validation for wearing their GMT or Submariner that’s never seen a splash of saltwater, just have them take a look at the wrist of someone actually in a cockpit and you’ll probably find the likes of the Breitling Aerospace Evo (above) with a digital readout.

So this Tuesday we’re giving our five favorite digital watches some shine...

Timepiece Tuesday: Mondaine Helvetica 1 Smartwatch

We’ve been keeping an eye on this new analog-smartwatch hybrid trend, and the latest entry has just arrived from Mondaine—known best for their Swiss railway watches and their love for the Helvetica typeface.

Hence, the Helvetica 1 smartwatch, which is getting a limited first run of 1,957 pieces to commemorate the year the typeface was created, available for preorder now.

So in the event you’d like to get in on the ground floor, we’re taking a closer look at what the watch has to offer.

Timepiece Tuesday: Movado 1881 Collection

Timepiece Tuesday: Movado 1881 Collection

You can probably spot a Movado from a mile away—thanks to their notably minimalist, and wildly popular, Museum dial watches.

But the Museum watch didn’t come on the scene until the late 1940s, over a half century after Movado began making precision mechanical timepieces in Switzerland in 1881. Hence the name of their new all-automatic-movement collection of watches harking back to their roots that was unveiled at Baselworld 2015 and has just hit their webstore.

Let’s take a closer look...

Timepiece Tuesday: The Watches of Market Week

Timepiece Tuesday: The Watches of Market Week

Just when you thought all the #menswear dust had settled from NYFW: Men’s...

All of a sudden it’s Market Week here in New York—a time for buyers to stock their shops, for editors to take the pulse of the upcoming seasons and for more general menswear camaraderie. So we took stock of the Big Three (Capsule, Liberty Fairs and MAN) to find our favorite watches being previewed.

So without further ado, here they are...
