Watch fair season may be well and truly over but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still plenty going on; here’s five of the best articles we read last week.
Richard Mille x St Barth
Any time you get a high-end luxury watch brand in an idyllic tropical setting you know good things are going to happen, just ask the team from WatchAnish! They recently had the opportunity to travel with Richard Mille to the island paradise of St. Barth to participate in a sailing regatta called ‘Les Voiles de St. Barth’. Fortunately they remembered to pack their camera gear too and so they were able to create the awesome video above.

Seiko Prospex Air Dive “Monster”
Speaking of water sports, the guys over at Professional Watches got hands on with the new Seiko Prospex Air Dive “Monster”, going so far as to describe it as “one of the most affordable automatic mechanical movement powered dive watches on the market.” Perfectly sized for summer at 42.3mm, the new Air Dive “Monster” is a great alternative for when you just want to head to the beach without having to worry too much about your watch, especially given that pricing starts from just US$475.

Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity
The Hodinkee team also got hands on with a few new pieces last week, with one in particular really standing out to me; the Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity. Launched this year at Baselworld, the Masterpiece Gravity generated quite a lot of positive buzz for the brand thanks to its impressive level of technical complexity. Based on the review it seems like the praise was well-deserved with the watch more or less living up to expectations, representing yet another step in the right direction for Maurice Lacroix.

Gustafsson & Sjögren Bifrost Isblå & Midnight Sun
Despite the fact that I will never have even the remotest chance of pronouncing the name properly I really like the work I’m seeing from Swedish watchmaker Gustafsson & Sjögren. Fortunately it seems so too is the team from Monochrome Watches, as last week they reviewed not one but two of this cool brand’s new pieces; the Sjögren Bifrost Isblå & Midnight Sun with engraved Midgard Serpent.
Worth a closer look even if just to satisfy your curiosity as to what I am actually talking about! See all the details here on Monochrome Watches.
MB&F Legacy Machine 101
The big news on The Watch Lounge last week was of course the official unveiling of the new MB&F Legacy Machine 101, featuring the creative lab’s first ever in-house designed movement. Slightly smaller than the Legacy Machines 1 & 2 (40mm vs 44mm), the Legacy Machine 101 opens up a whole new market to the wonders of MB&F. The entry-level price of US$59,000 plus taxes certainly won’t hurt things either.
