For the past week or so I have been fortunate enough to spend some hands-on time with the new URWERK UR-105 T-Rex. Unveiled at SIHH earlier this year as part of URWERK’s inaugural attendance at the event, the UR-105 T-Rex is a distinctive looking piece to say the least.
URWERK has decided it’s time to close the chapter on another of its multi-award winning timepieces, in this case the EMC. It’s a sad occasion to be sure but one that also signifies that the brand is officially freeing up time and resources to focus on new and no doubt exciting developments. It’s not all bad news though, as in true URWERK style, the brand is celebrating the milestone in spectacular style with the unveiling at SalonQP of one final, awesome limited edition! Presenting the EMC Pistol.
For the past few days I’ve had the pleasure of wearing quite a special new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. Part of the “First OMEGA in Space” collection – which, not surprisingly, commemorates the inaugural journey of the Omega Speedmaster into space on the wrist of astronaut “Wally” Schirra – this new model features an updated Sedna™ gold case that is just stunning.
Zenith first brought the El Primero 410 back to life in 2014. In 2015 they added some color and I was sold. Based largely on a popular model from the 1970’s, the El Primero first made its appearance as a limited edition of 500 pieces in steel with a sexy but subdued silver dial. I was quite smitten with the watch at the time but I must admit I found the monochromatic styling a little boring.
Arnold & Son is undoubtedly one of the most impressive semi-independent watch manufacturers of the 21st Century. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the new Constant Force Tourbillon.
