There is no more satisfying a feeling for a man than when he pairs his favorite Swiss (or German) made watch with his impeccably tailored suit.
I love me a good vintage re-issue watch, especially when things are done right. A favorite from (very) recent memory is the new Heuer Monza Chronograph.
So as some of you may have gathered by now I had to unexpectedly cancel my annual visit to Baselworld this year at the last minute. This was due to circumstances outside of my control and was made all the more frustrating by the fact that my prepaid flights and hotel were non-refundable. Consequently, I have not been able to get hands on with all the new watches I wanted to (well, not yet anyway). That being said, there were still a number of cool new releases this year that – money permitting – I would snap up sight unseen. Here’s a selection of them.
So by now you would have heard that one of the watches everyone’s talking about at this year’s Baselworld is the new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in steel. The big news of course is that the iconic chronograph now sports a black cerachrom bezel.

Today we’re taking a quick look at the newly announced Edge Double Barrel from Armin Strom, a kick ass watch from one of our under-the-radar favorites.

Sounds like a tall order; read on to find out if the Edge Double Barrel is up to the challenge.
