Is it real? A buyer’s guide to spotting a fake TAG Heuer

Author: John Wallis - August 29. 2018

Heuer has long been one of Switzerland's most coveted watchmakers. Founded in 1860 and legendary for pioneering what many consider to be the coolest driving watches of all time in the 1960s and 70s, the company became so successful in its modern incarnation of TAG Heuer that it has been subject to serious predation by that plague of the industry: fakes. continue reading

What watch is worth waiting decades for? Top 5 Most wanted Rolex and how to skip the queue – Hulk, Pepsi, Baselworld novelties, and more

Author: John Wallis - August 20. 2018

The new Pepsi-bezel GMT Master II unveiled this year at Baselworld was so popular that customers can no longer even get added to the waiting list. The Cosmograph Daytona ref 116500LN can be purchased from Jewellers if you are willing to wait over a decade. If a waiting time of 3 - 5 years sounds good, you can easily go for the Submariner Date ref 116610LV, aka the “Hulk”. Don’t even get us started on Baselworld novelty waiting times including the "Single Red Line" Sea-Dweller or Oyster Perpetual 39 with black and white dials. But why do these Rolex waiting lists exist, and what are the top 5 Rolex models that are the toughest to get your hands on in 2018? continue reading

Lamborghini Aventador and Rolex Daytona: What if watches were cars?

Author: Murray Clark - August 01. 2018

Cars and watches may seem about as compatible as Donald Trump and Angela Merkel. But think about it. They’re both finely-tuned objects of craftsmanship (watches and cars, not world leaders): one just guzzles petrol, the other a Swiss watchmaker’s nine-to-five. If you go top level, they’re not really that far removed in price either. Plus, watch manufactures have made a habit of partnering with automobile companies for years: Oris for F1 Team Williams, Parmigiani for Bugatti and of course, TAG Heuer for Steve McQueen. Though remember, we’re talking real cars, not a carpool-friendly Peugeot 206. continue reading
