Would Lil Yachty rock this Rolex Yacht-Master 40? Who knows, but it's cool

Editor's note: If you ever want to flex down at the NBAYOUNGBOAT Club, you want to have the appropriate attire — jacket, loafers, watch. And when it comes to the latter, we suggest the Yacht-Master. Surely, Lil Yachty would approve.  This cool, calm and collected new Yacht-Master almost slipped past me. I was too busy falling in love (again) with the gold and chocolate Rolesor Yacht-Master, which was distracting me and dazzling my senses. But then, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a flash of almost-iridescent blue, and my curiosity was piqued. I'm so glad it was, because this steel and platinum Yacht-Master, with its dark rhodium dial and blue highlights, is an absolute stunner, even though it's a much more restrained affair than its Everose-embellished siblings (in both Rolesor and Oysterflex variants). This is partly down to the dark dial, but it's also the bi-directional platinum bezel, which might sound weird given the material, but with a predominantly sand-blasted finish, it's actually far less in-your-face than ceramic. Not that it's plain, by any stretch. The shimmering dial, polished bezel elements and centre bracelet links means it pops where it counts, and the overall effect of metallic grey on metallic…

Understanding the IWC Pilot's family part 3 – the Classic collection

We're now more than halfway through our flyover of the various families in the IWC Pilot's family — we've covered off Top Gun and the Spitfire, but now we're hitting the Classics. As you might expect given the classic moniker, the Classic family is, well, classic. Based strongly on the original military-era pilots, these watches form the core of the collection, and are all about simplicity, function and legibility. Andrew picked out two key models from the line and, in some ways, they're polar opposites, even though the visual similarities are very strong. The IWC Big Pilot's watch Large, and very much in charge, the IWC Big Pilot is truly an icon. With its hefty seven days of power reserve and a crown that stands out from a mile away. Not that the 46.2mm case is in any way shy.  The IWC Pilot's watch Mark XVIII  In stark contrast to the bold Big Pilot, the Mark XVIII is the definition of a perfect all-rounder: timeless style in a well-sized 40mm case, and a truly great black calf strap. It's a winner.  Made in partnership with IWC. However, the opinions expressed in this article are our own in accordance with our Editorial Policy.

ANNOUNCING: Complete the Time+Tide 2019 Reader Survey, have a chance at winning a TAG Heuer Autavia

Welcome to the Time+Tide 2019 Reader Survey! That time when we put some hard-hitting questions into a survey program, work some internet magic and set it free, for all you good people out there to answer. One lucky Australian survey respondent will win a TAG Heuer Autavia chronograph for their troubles. Take the survey now You should be familiar with this heritage-inspired chronograph, but if you're not — here's what you need to know. International folks are welcome to take part, and we encourage you to, but sadly the international competition logistics make it practically impossible to open such a high-value prize up to the world.

"The watch that started it all for me" – Jean-Paul's Breitling Transocean

breitlign transocean

There's always one that started it all. The first taste that starts the passion. Like the first dunk that lit the flame in Jordan's heart. The first moment Phelps touched the end of a pool and knew he loved to win. Or the first piece in your collection that opened your eyes to the variety and complexity involved in the pursuit of good watches. For Jean-Paul, this was his first. A stunning Breitling Transocean ref. 1461 semi-perpetual calendar, that he picked up on his honeymoon in New York City. After four visits to the Wempe boutique, he decided to pull the trigger, and hasn't looked back since. The fact that you can put this many complications in a watch that small, and it's also a watch you don't see every day. I'm very happy with it. Wear it in good health, Jean-Paul.
