Oris Divers Sixty-Five With A Fabric Khaki Strap: Hands-On Review [01 733 7707 4064-07 5 20 22]

Oris watch sat with crown up on supplied booklet - Oris Divers Sixty-Five: Hands-On Review [01 733 7707 4064-07 5 20 22]

This watch is currently my absolute favourite Oris watch at the moment (at the time of writing). It holds a design that has tried the tests of time and succeeded. This watch was originally constructed in, as you may have guessed ,1965. luckily when Oris relaunched this updated version they didn't kill what made it so special; but, improved on it with modern manufacturing techniques and new materials.

Omega Seamaster 300m Diver Co-Axial Chronograph 44mm: Hands-On Review [212.92.44.50.99.001 ETNZ]

This Omega Seamaster watch is refreshingly different to the usual stainless steel and metal bracelet norm. This ETNZ special edition Seamaster has an unusually spartan dial, that focuses on functionality, and is of a surprisingly lightweight build for such a big chunky watch.

This is the new Moonwatch for the space race lovers who may not be able to afford an original pre-moon 105.012 or post-moon 145.012 Omega Speedmaster, being tested and certified by NASA to endure extremes in temperature, humidity, shock, pressure and vibrations. But unfortunately for some, these rare gems of timepieces also command a high asking price on the second-hand market. Costing 3 or 4 times that of the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch I'm currently reviewing here (released in 2014). Or this watch could be suited to those who don't want the hassle of buying a second-hand original. What with finding one in a good condition, with a service history, from a reputable seller, at a good price.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless Steel: Hands-On Review [116520 Black]

Hands-On Review: Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless Steel ref. 116520 (Black) - Rolex Daytona sitting on its supplied box

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless Steel is perhaps one of the most desirable luxury watches in the world and one of the most recognisable chronograph watches along with the Omega Professional Speedmaster. This is the only Rolex watch where the supply is purposefully limited to increase its scarceness and thus maintain a high value.

Theres a good reason why Oris is one of our best-selling brands on our site and the new Divers Sixty-Five is no exception, and really shows what Oris does best. Creating great mechanical watches at an affordable price point. Staying true to their outspoken slogan ‘real watches for real people’. The updated Oris Divers Sixty-Five manages the tough balancing act of updating a classic design, with modern manufacturing techniques, for an audience with different ideals. While not diluting the original spirit and charm of the 50-year-old design icon.

Rolex GMT Master II: Unboxing Review [116710BLNR]

Review of the Rolex GMT Master II [116710BLNR] aka ‘The Batman’ Dial closeup

Throughout wristwatch history Rolex have forever been at the forefront of innovation. They are known as the first major manufacturer of a completely water-resistant divers watch thanks to a series of landmark publicity stunts to promote their brand. They put another mark into the history books with the Datejust that automatically adjusted the date by itself - an unheard of accomplishment at the time. And they are also attributed with the first watch to show two-time zones with the GMT master.
