Feature: Sub-£1,000 Watches
While £1,000 won’t get you the best watch—not by a long shot—it can still get you a good watch, and even a great one. Choose carefully, do the research, and you’ll find something worth hanging on to—or you can cheat and let us suggest something instead.
Feature: How To Cheat At Vintage
You’re one of two people. You either look at vintage watches as a challenge and an adventure, jumping in and reaping the many pleasures that are to be had by purchasing a watch that comes from an era when mechanical was current tech; or you’re someone who eyes them with caution, hesitant at the idea of owning a watch older than you are. If you’re the latter, it’s understandable—not everyone wants to take that particular leap—but it’s a shame to miss out. There is a third option however: cheat.
Feature: 3 Great Value Watches
As nice as watches from the likes of Rolex and Patek Philippe are, not everyone is fortunate enough to have the budget for them—but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some fantastic affordable substitutes out there. So, here are three expensive watches—and three alternatives for under £1,500.
Feature: 3 Watches That Are Cheaper Than You Think
Money no object, we'd all be wearing Patek Philippes, F. P. Journes and the like, but unfortunately that's not the case. With rising RRPs and a healthy collectors' market, the best watches continue to get further out of reach for many people. But there's hope yet, and we've got three of them right here.
News: Longines Avigation Chronograph Type A7 1935
So, edging along the M25 in slow moving traffic isn’t exactly the same as soaring through the skies at the dawn of the aviation age—but with the Longines Avigation Chronograph Type A7 1935, you can at least get lost in the daydream every time you look at your wrist. The watch draws inspiration from a pilot’s chronograph made for the US Army Air Force in 1935, and is not only a smart-looking watch from a premium Swiss watchmaker, but it’s also very affordable.
Review: Longines Heritage Military 1938
The idea of a military watch tends to render something a false impression in the mind's eye. When we think of military equipment, we think of armour-plated battle monsters, brim full of weaponry and gadgetry to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy, but the reality is something quite different. Like anything designed to operate where the user is in serious danger of losing their life, the brief is simplicity, quite literally. Hardware should do its job in the least complicated way possible, no more no less, whether its purpose is to be a bristling mega-tank or a straightforward wristwatch. In the arena of war, failing equipment is not an option.
News: Longines Heritage 1969
The Longines Museum, located in the village of Saint-Imier, Switzerland, is just one of several museums maintained by a variety of high-end watchmakers in the interest of preserving watchmaking tradition for future generations. It looks back at the brand’s long and winding journey since it was founded in 1832, featuring displays on notable watchmakers and horological feats, as well as exhibiting notable watches from the brand’s history.
News: Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch Chronograph
The Lépine pocket watch, named after innovator and watchmaker Jean-Antoine Lépine, is a style of pocket watch admired for its thinness. Following a development by Lépine himself that simplified the calibre and used flattened bridges to save space, it is a technique still used in modern watches today, as well as in the first ever watch made by the inimitable Longines.
News: Longines Railroad
If there's one thing you want from a railway service, it’s punctuality - and for that, you're going to need reliable timekeeping. Back in the early part of the 20th century, Longines became part of the history of the railroad when its timepieces were adopted by railway employees across the globe, all the way from the USA to Romania.
Review: Longines Single Push-Piece Chrono
I've been a fan of Longines ever since I became aware of the company's existence. Vintage Longines makes for fairly priced, reliable ownership, giving much better value than its better-known Swiss counterparts. Modern Longines too surpasses any pre-conceived expectations of quality for its price, offering watches I would gladly own regardless of budget. And I did own one: the Longines Legend Diver.
Review: Patek Philippe Nautilus 5740/1G
Forty-two years is a long time. It’s long enough to go from enjoying a carefree childhood to having a serious need to make a will, and for those who’ve spent that time hoping Patek Philippe would fit a grand complication into the quirky Nautilus, the wait was a long one. But now the wait is over.
Feature: £3,000 vs £12,000 vs £40,000 chronograph
The hand wound chronograph is perhaps the foundation of a high-end watch company’s ability to demonstrate its prowess, a complex, intricate assembly unencumbered by a rotor weight hiding the mechanical wizardry going on inside. There’s no better palette upon which to exhibit the art of fine watchmaking—but can you tell the difference between one that’s more affordable and one that’s very expensive?
Feature: Rolex Sea-Dweller vs Tudor Pelagos
If you’re looking to buy a serious dive watch, then the Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 is likely to be right at the top of your wish list. It’s got the history, it’s got the heritage—but it’s also got a problem: the Tudor Pelagos.
Feature: 3 Vintage Heuers
It’s had its ups and downs, TAG Heuer—and perhaps more recently, the ups have been outnumbered by the downs. There’s a positive future on the horizon thanks to the efforts of brand fixer-upper Jean-Claude Biver, but a look to the future isn’t always enough to give us hope—we need to look to the past as well.
