Just like the recently released MB&F HM3 FrogX, the MB&F Horological Machine N°9 too takes horological innovation a leap forward. It’s what the Büsser and gang do best – force their way through into the depths of our minds astonishing them with mechanical art wonders.
The Spring Drive movement in the new Grand Seiko SBGE257 allows the second’s hand to smoothly glide across the dial, casting its shadow on the multi-faceted markers, and then lets the light do its magic on the forest green dial.
Sinn is the king of combining uncompromising function and high-quality design in a decently priced package. It is released as part of Sinn’s latest 105 design collection
This is a Mind (stats), Body (design features) & Soul (what’s special) review of the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Cold Brown watch.
If you are one of those who look at the conventional definition of luxury and feel it is time for reinventing the wheel, then look no further than the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire Harrods.
I think the new Sinn R500 Chronograph is a fairly different looking piece both based on the current watch industry catalogue and from Sinn, and should make an excellent addition to any collection to add a bit more variety and flair to it.
I would like to wrap this up by saying that in my opinion this ‘Batman’ is the perfect answer to the other ‘Batman’, the Rolex GMT-Master II ref.126710BLNR. The beauty of this release is that it can go on being a superhero alongside Rolex’s iconic version; both these watches are distinctive and do not necessarily ‘eat into’ each other’s market or style.
While the new Sinn 103 Sa G doesn’t offer anything revolutionary or groundbreaking from the brand, it still takes an established design language, enthuses it will a striking colour, puts in a different — read non-Valjoux 7750 — engine under the hood, and calls it a day. Honestly, it ticks the right boxes.
Overall, the GPHG winning Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Hijri Perpetual Calendar is not only a mechanical marvel but it also caters to the idea of celebrating different cultures.
The brand may have decided that this is the best time to put 19-series to sleep, but this family of watches is going out on the top of its game. The new MING 19.05 is a revelation in watchmaking; it sits in a higher pedigree that’s in rarified circles. And like I said, MING may be wrapping up 2020 on high note, but I am sure Mr Thein will be back with what I can only predict to be a stellar 2021.
