VIDEO: Panerai – the art of the tool watch, explained

All this week we’ve been asking people what Panerai means to them, and we couldn’t think of a better way of wrapping it up than hearing from Panerai collector – and a man with an eye for fine design – Michael S. Michael, or Mickey to most, manages to sum up just what makes Panerai great in under a minute. The key features that Panerai initially developed were with naval warfare in mind. They resulted in a watch that is (paradoxically)… Read More

VIDEO: The Tudor Black Bay Chrono – what it’s really like on the wrist

Earlier this week we ran a thousand or so words on the Tudor Black Bay Chrono, along with some pretty crispy pics, which are – as the saying goes – easily worth another few thousand words.

VIDEO: A just-for-fun comic inspired by the IWC Portugieser

Editor’s Note: You think you know someone. When Felix had the idea to tell a story about a fictional IWC Portugieser wearer through the visual medium of a comic book strip I was intrigued. He worked with illustrator William Webb to bring a vignette to life entirely of his own imagination – a guy living the dream facing an event most of us would quickly want to wake up from. I was impressed at his hidden talents. It’s short, sharp and purely… Read More
