LIST: 7 tough watches that could help save the world in Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Back for its sixth instalment, the all-action franchise returns to the big screen with Mission: Impossible — Fallout. And sees IMF agent Ethan Hunt – played by Tom Cruise – and his crew of undercover specialists take on the bad guys, doing whatever it takes to save the world from certain nuclear destruction, with what’s sure to be another action-packed adventure, full of insane stunts and death-defying set pieces. I thought I’d join in on the fun and make a few helpful tough watch recommendations. And in true Mission: Impossible style, equip each one with an idea for its own spy tech invention. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read on. *This message will not self-destruct in 5 seconds Victorinox I.N.O.X. Automatic Spy tech suggestion: Paracord strap This was an easy one, and to be honest I didn’t need to put a lot of thought into what spy gadget would fit the ever-tough I.N.O.X. Because Victorinox already make one for it – a paracord strap. This latest version replaces the I.N.O.X’s familiar quartz movement, with an automatic movement. And while it’s not quite as indestructible as the original, it should still do the job. Seiko 1978 Quartz Diver’s…

VIDEO: The Zenith Defy El Primero 21 – a cutting-edge chronograph

Earlier this week we had a look at Zenith’s entry point into the Defy family, the solid-dialled Defy Classic. Well, today we’re going to kick it up a notch with something the brand is particularly famous for — a chronograph. And not just any chrono, but the Defy El Primero 21, a watch that marries the modern silhouette and skeletonised look of the Defy with an awesome movement. The El Primero 21 is an evolution of the revolutionary El Primero, which debuted way back in 1969, when Woodstock was the place to be and Vietnam was not the recreational travel destination it is today. And while coupling an automatic movement with a chronograph was a big deal back then, we’ve moved on a little. The EP 21 still marks time but it does so using two regulators, one for timekeeping and the other for the chronograph. The latter beats at a whopping 50Hz, allowing you to time events up to an accuracy of a hundredth of a second. In turn this means that the central chronograph hand makes a revolution every second. And yes, we know we didn’t capture that in the video – we’re kicking ourselves. All told, the Defy…

WATCHSPOTTING: 14 of the best watches spotted in ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

Jerry Seinfeld can do no wrong, and after having been streamed more than 100 million times, Seinfeld’s pet project, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, recently premiered its new season on Netflix after nine seasons as a web series on the digital network Crackle. Staying true to the title’s premise, this simple yet compelling series sees Jerry introduce a new celebrity comedian in each episode, picking them up in a unique vintage car and heading out for coffee. The pair then riff, unscripted, on all manner of topics to varying comedic degree. It’s safe to say that where there are celebrities there are luxury watches. We take a look at some of the best from this season and those that preceded it. Season 10, Episode 1: Jerry Seinfeld wears a G-Shock ‘Rangeman’ In this episode, Jerry picks up The Hangover star and Between Two Ferns host Zach Galifianakis in a ridiculous VW Thing. Based on the German World War II equivalent of the Jeep, it makes sense that on his wrist is the rugged and just about everything-proof G-Shock Rangeman. Season 10, Episode 2: Dave Chappelle wears an Apple Watch When you’re as popular and hardworking as hit stand-up comic, actor, writer and producer Mr Dave Chappelle, it’s…

WHO TO FOLLOW: @MrGrandSeiko – no prizes for guessing this guy’s favourite brand

Sydney-sider Daniel Yong (AKA @MrGrandSeik0) is a teacher by day, and Grand Seiko fanatic by night. When he’s not working, you might catch him in a random café in Sydney with either a cappuccino, espresso, or a glass of whisky (depending on his mood and time of day, of course), accompanied by good reading material. Hi Daniel, what’s your daily watch and why? It’s an Apple Watch … Just kidding, Andy! Although there’s nothing wrong with owning an Apple Watch, I believe one should own a piece of horology first. My daily wrist companion is my Grand Seiko SBGW031. It was the first “real” watch I purchased myself that spiralled my obsession with horology and, yes, Grand Seiko. I will cover why Grand Seiko later, but since purchasing it, I feel like it has grown into becoming both my comfort watch and the extra good luck charm I need when delivering an important presentation. Or quite simply, when a situation requires me at my best. Did I mention that it’s more versatile than you think? Really, it is. Just check out my Instagram page. What else is in your collection? Have you got a favourite? It’s no longer in my collection, but I loved…
