FRIDAY WIND DOWN: How to stay across all the action at Watches & Wonders with Time+Tide

Zach Blass

The biggest horological moment of the year is only days away. Beginning on March 27, Watches & Wonders Geneva 2023 will kick off – alongside a whole Geneva Watch Week that includes other smaller fairs like Time To Watches. Basically, a lot of new releases will be announced next week and we want to make sure it is as painless as possible for you to stay across all the madness. With three easy steps, however, it will be super simple to do so.

Step 1: Bookmark our new Watches & Wonders hub

watches and wonders hub time and tide

For this edition of the fair, we have developed a new hub that will serve as a dedicated feed for all things Watches & Wonders and any other timepieces released during the festivities of the week. This hub will be easily accessible on our homepage, but for quick access we recommend you bookmark the Time+Tide Watches & Wonders hub in your browser.

Step 2: Subscribe to our YouTube channel

I would hope most, if not all of you, are already subscribed to our Time+Tide YouTube channel. If you are not, what are you doing bud? Get on it! And, whether you are already subscribed, or about to after this PSA, definitely make sure you have notifications on (hit that bell icon) to ensure you are notified the second our videos hit the page. If you do not remember from last year, we really emphasise video coverage throughout the fair so you will definitely not want to miss what we put together throughout the week: rapid reactions to releases, CEO interviews, Time+Tide team videos, and expect some fun games with attendees as well.

Step 3: Follow @timetidewatches on Instagram

Again, if you are not already – well, I am not mad, I am just disappointed. Fortunately, it is an easy remedy to get back in my good books. Go to our @timetidewatches Instagram profile, make sure you are following us, and get ready for an onslaught of #watchporn reels, posts and stories.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Back to back watch meme of the week for @watchumor, I try to avoid repeats but they are killing it as of late. If you are familiar with Steinhart watches and their strategy, then you know just how hilarious this is. In summary: LMAO!

Wrist shot of the week: His/her GP Laureato Aston Martins? Sign me up

Last week, we ran our hands-on review of the new Girard-Perregaux Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Editions, but this week this double wrist shot entered my feed with both the 38mm and 42mm watches captured inside a green Aston Martin. Check the geo-tag, of course this happened in Dubai. Quite a flex indeed.

Time+Tide Shop select of the week: Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 Light Blue

The Tissot PRX range is distinctive for its slenderness, the strength of its design and its timeless style. Going back to its origins in 1978, the model’s wide horizontal links, typical of the era’s designs, was fully integrated with the flat, barrel-shaped case. This contemporary interpretation is on-trend and a credit to its predecessor. It retains all the essential characteristics, refines them, affirms them and gives them an improved finish, the quality of which is flawless.

Now launching with a light blue dial and automatic movement, this PRX model is powered by the Powermatic 80 with up to 80 hours power reserve. This watch is designed for those with a passion for design, eye for ingenuity and desire for autonomy.

You can purchase the Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 Light Blue from the Time+Tide shop here. Price: A$1100

Our favourite Time+Tide coverage of the week:

The new Longines Spirit Flyback is the latest entry into the rock-solid collection

This week Longines has once again looked to their rich heritage, particularly with flyback chronographs, to present the new Longines Spirit Flyback. There are two dial options, black and blue sunburst-finished and each are available on a strap or bracelet. Inside you have their COSC-certified, Longines-exclusive automatic calibre L791.4 with silicon balance spring. Read the full introducing review here.

The DOXA SUB 200 C-GRAPH II is more compact and more colourful than ever

The new DOXA SUB 200 C-GRAPH II brings the case size down from 45mm to 42mm. This is also the first time DOXA’s famous dial colours have been given a sunburst finish. Head here for our full review.

5 of the most pioneering anti-magnetic watches

Magnetism is the invisible force that threatens your mechanical watch on a daily basis. Something as simple as your iPhone could affect it’s accuracy, which is why many modern accuracy standards, the likes of METAS, subject the movements to highly potent magnetic fields. Nowadays, with anti-magnetic materials and other modern tech, magnetism is not as big of a threat as in the past, and we have the following five anti-magnetic watches to thank. Check out Borna’s full list here.
