FRIDAY WIND DOWN: June 5th, 2015

Ned Stark needs to get a new catch phrase. Winter isn’t coming. It’s well and truly here.

So in a special Winter Themed Wind Down we’ve rounded out the frostiest, and the most warming watches around.

How cold? ICE COLD


There’s something chilling about the combination of platinum and diamonds on a watch, and we’re just not talking about the price. One of the best examples of this type is, of course, Rolex. Just look at this thing. Brrrrr.

It’s chilly in Alaska

In 1970 Omega embarked on the Alaska project – a secret project aimed at developing a watch for NASA that could handle extreme temperatures on the dark side of the moon – and look cool doing it. Read all about it over at Fratello Watches.

Warm the cockles of your heart


Want a watch to go with your whisky? Try the Bremont Chivalry. Made in partnership with Chivas Regal, the limited edition of 12 watches features the Chivas shield on the dial and a bit of a whisky barrel on the back. Plus the watch is heart warming for another reason too, all 12 watches were auctioned off with proceeds going to charity.

Warm yourselves by the fire


That’s all they’re good for. Kindling.

The week in numbers
