WATCHSPOTTING: 5 watches that chart Tom Hardy’s career from This Means War to Venom

We have a bit of a man crush in the Time+Tide office on English actor Tom Hardy. After a film debut in Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down there has rarely been a misstep in his career — from Batman’s arch rival, Bane, in The Dark Knight Rises to taking over the mantle of Max Rockatansky in Mad Max: Fury Road. More than just his choices in playing legendary characters, this fascination with Tom Hardy is arguably more about his swagger, cool demeanour and seeming disdain for the traditional celebrity culture — opting to keep his personal life … well, private. He has shown little…

LIST: 5 solid vintage watches you can buy in Australia right now

I don’t think we’d be telling anyone anything new by saying vintage is sooo hot right now. Price escalation, predominantly driven by the vintage Rolex market at auction, has created incredible demand for vintage timepieces. But it can seem we get the short end of the stick in the land Down Under when it comes to access, quality and quantity of vintage stock. That being said, the Australian pre-owned watch market is abuzz with quality buys at the moment, if you look hard enough. So we took it upon ourselves to explore just some of the timepieces available right now,…

WATCHSPOTTING: Ozark’s Jason Bateman continues to live his best vintage Rolex Daytona life

In a clip produced by Vanity Fair to coincide with the release of Ozark Season 2 on Netflix, Jason Bateman, Laura Linney and Julia Garner explain Ozark ‘hillbilly’ slang. We’re sure you’ll agree that they all play second fiddle to the 1979 Rolex Daytona hanging casually from Bateman’s wrist throughout. It’s not the first time we’ve spotted it on Bateman (Felix caught him at the 89th Academy Awards in February of 2017), The story goes that he traded a Rolex Sea-Dweller and a Franck Muller for it (and one suspects a cartel amount of cash), and the outcome of the flip is that he’s clearly not…

OPINION: There are 3 types of watch wearers, which one are you?

Editor’s Note: Recently we learned that there are people in the world who buy and wear broken watches. In between all the head shaking, tut-tutting and ‘what’s the watch world coming to’ etc amongst the team, we reached a surprising point. We learned that while none of us falls into this desperate and strange new category, we are, in fact, all very different watch wearers. The daily ritual for us of choosing, preparing and maintaining our watches is — if you’ll pardon the hubris — wildly dissimilar. So different that Dan took it upon himself to classify us, Indiana Jones style. These are the results of his field…

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.…

LIST: Auction madness – 6 watches you could have bought at the Jerry Lewis estate sale for less than $10k

Famed comedian, actor and director Jerry Lewis, AKA the King of Comedy, died in August 2017 at the age of 91. He left behind the legacy of an incredible career that spanned over 60 years. Known for his slapstick humour, Lewis rose to fame in the ’40s and ’50s as one-half of comedy duo Martin and Lewis, with the equally legendary singer and actor, Dean Martin. He also left behind a substantial estate, filled with objects, both precious and pedestrian, that marked key milestones in his life. On June 22, Julien’s Auctions in Las Vegas sold an extensive 409-piece catalogue…

WATCHSPOTTING: Travolta wears Gotti’s Piaget and other legendary gangster watches

Filmgoers have had a fascination with mobsters since before the advent of the talkies, all the way back to the first ever gangster film, The Black Hand, in 1906. Beginning in the 1970s, filmmakers started exploring the New York mafioso culture in classic movies like The Godfather, Mean Streets and Goodfellas. Now it’s John Travolta’s turn to “don” the overcoat in this year’s Gotti, exploring the life, and death, of Gambino family boss John Gotti. To get into character, Travolta spent time with the Gotti family and with Gotti’s personal effects, including several watches owned by the (in)famous mobster. Which got us thinking about…

HOW TO: Wear a watch like nobody is watching, featuring Jeff Goldblum, Tim Cahill and Serena Williams

There are watches we wear in our real lives and there are watches we imagine we would be brave enough to wear in our imaginary lives.

There’s a lot we can learn about owning our wrist choices from these people. So here goes, a guide to wearing a bosstown, big-boy watch like nobody is watching. Jeff Goldblum…

LIST: 4 watches Mark Wahlberg wears on a daily basis that you’ll never, ever have the stones to

Mark Wahlberg, eh. This guy! Actor, entrepreneur and unfettered watch lover who doesn’t care — not even a tiny bit — about what you think of his horological choices. And with his exciting combination of lack of you-know-whats to give and a surplus of funds comes the kind of freedom that allows his wrist to live its best life, just about every day. What does he wear? He’s got the right stuff, baby; often iced out, sometimes gem-set, near always gold or platinum. It’s a gangster’s paradise, and with yet more shots of his baller collection flooding the socials today, it’s time we…

NEWS: A Looney Patek and a million dollar Sub go under the hammer in New York

Watches belonging to Melvin (Mel) Blanc, the American voice actor famous for bringing to life nearly 400 characters in the Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera cartoons, went under the hammer at Christie’s New York in their “An evening of exceptional watches” auction. Mel Blanc brought delight to generations of children and adults alike as the voice of classic childhood favourites such as Bugs Bunny, Sylvester the Cat, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn and Barney Rubble, among many, many others. Less well known, but no less delightful, was Mel’s collection of more than 500 watches and clocks, which he proudly displayed in…

LIST: Top 10 watches from a Baselworld first-timer

Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski All Black This updated Aerofusion ‘Orlinski’ — named for the French sculptor Richard Orlinski, who collaborated on the design — is all about the angles; the muted tones of the micro-blasted black ceramic catches all the light.

LIST: The celebrity factor – 8 examples of the impact of provenance on price, from Newman to Trump

The power of ‘celebrity’ is not a new concept. As far back as the ancient pharaohs, celebrities have been put on a pedestal (sometimes literally) and we’ve obsessed into the lives of the powerful, the wealthy and the beautiful. These days, technology puts the beautiful people at our fingertips, and this all-access, always-on, microscope into famous lives continues to fuel the celebrity fire. And that desire for fame through association is at its strongest when it comes to celebrity-owned objects. Tonight, Russell Crowe will auction off a collection of movie memorabilia, jewellery and watches at Sotheby’s in Sydney as part…

LIST: 7 of the best sub-$5000 watches of Basel 2018 – from beyond the glitz of Hall 1

Much of the hype of Baselworld is transfixed on the monolithic Hall 1, where the majority of the media attention is focused on the big industry players from the Swatch Group and LVMH, as well as big indies like Rolex and Patek Philippe. But beyond the glitz, there’s another Baselworld. Hall 2, located across the way under the iconic Baselworld clock, is a building chock-full of smaller watchmakers, who sometimes produce excellent, exciting watches at great prices. I took some time out of my schedule and Hall 1, to find seven of the best. Laco Pilot Watch Leipzig Erbstück Laco…

READER COMMENT: Day 3 from Basel as you saw it, with plenty of Seiko, Oris and road accidents?

Day 3 of Baselworld is long gone, and before we get too deep into day four, we need to recap your thoughts, reactions and emotions, because that’s what we do in Reader Comment. Let’s jump into it. We need to clear this one up again. @phat nutz thinks our voice-over talent is Felix hamming it up, but we in the team know his voice could never be that deep. For those that missed previous explanations, we recently discovered the ‘Voice of Australia / tennis / AFL’, Craig Willis, is a self-described watch nut and a T+T reader. This led to the highlight of…

READER COMMENT: Day 1 of Basel 2018, from your point of view. Our favourite comments, overshares and concerns

Crowdsourcing is all the rage at the moment. And we love being on-trend as much as we love the idea of involving our community on the site, so here’s what we think we might do. For Baselworld, we’re going to publish our favourite comments from social media on a semi-regular basis. Why? Because occasionally there’s such high concentrations of wisdom, humour and ignorance that we think it would be rude not to share. In the comments, we also see a daily journey as the watches we’re unveiling cause emotions: good, bad and ambivalent. So, let’s begin. But before we do,…

INSIGHT: Predicting the Rolex Basel 2018 releases, using the last 7 years as a guide

With Baselworld 2018 just around the corner, fevers around the Time+Tide office are running hot, contemplating what Rolex is likely to drop in Basel in a few days time. Looking back at Rolex releases in Basel over the past seven years, we assess some of the mic-dropping releases in the Rolex line-up and the likelihood of seeing updates to those models in 2018. 2017 –  Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Boom. Probably the most talked about watch of Basel 2017, Rolex launched the new Sea-Dweller a mere three years after its previous incarnation, with a 43mm case (to some controversy), cyclops date window…

WATCHSPOTTING: 11 watches worn at the 2018 Oscars, feat. Montblanc, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Piaget, Apple and Rolex

It’s that time of year again where Tinseltown rolls out the red carpet for an evening of self-congratulatory grip-and-grinning, closing out the award season run with the Academy Awards, affectionately known by the name given to its ‘Academy Award of Merit’ prize in 1939 – the Oscars. Hollywood scandal and politics aside, the Oscars does produce some high-end glamour and more than a few enviable timepieces. Willem Dafoe – Best Supporting Actor Nominee – IWC Schaffhausen Da Vinci Chronograph Edition Laureus Sport for Good Foundation Timothée Chalamet – Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role Nominee – JLC Reverso Tribute…
