Watchuseek readers may recall an article on the Boston Watch Company last month. The watch featured attracted just a shade under 200 likes. The Charles River Diver was created by Walter Schofield and fellow WUS member Preston Turk with a focus on offering the best quality and value for the money. The concept was proposed to the WUS community initially under the name “Newport Watch” and was subsequently refined following numerous suggestions from members.
Vacheron Constantin’s exquisite Métiers d’Art collection continues, this time with the focus on the Legend of the Chinese Zodiac; a series of timepieces based on a 12-year cycle. These watches are expertly enhanced by enamelling and engraving.
“Trust me, it can’t be done guys, it’s been tried many times, it just doesn’t work, give up.” That’s what the experts said. And if the determined founders of Lexell Watches had heeded these words today we would not be discussing the world’s first stone and steel watches.
Before you get too excited and call up Pierre De Roche to slap down the best part of $100,000 on this undoubtedly fine watch, you should know that it was launched last year, displayed at Baselworld earlier this year and there are only 11 pieces available.

Light can make you doubt everything you know. There, I like that better.
It was only two weeks ago that Hublot launched the Mexico Big Bang Ferrari. Now they have moved North of the border in order to celebrate the opening of a new boutique and the presence of the Scuderia in Texas. Hublot now unveils another exclusive edition: the Big Bang Ferrari Texas. Imbued with the DNA of both Hublot and Ferrari, the watch also pays tribute to the Lone Star State by reflecting its colours of navy blue, red and white, as seen on the state flag.
Manufacture Zenith scooped the GPHG Grand Prix “Sports Watch” category on Friday evening at the prize-giving ceremony held in Geneva’s Grand Théâtre. The Zenith El Primero Stratos Flyback Striking 10th Chronograph is equipped with what is described as the world’s most precise automatic chronograph movement, the El Primero, with flyback and Striking 10th functions. The watch accompanied Zenith Ambassador Felix Baumgartner on his successful space jump.
By one of our editors: For the past couple of days Panerai was so kind to lend me two novelties from their collection, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 PAM512 and PAM514. Before I will go into detail about both watches, let me share some of my history with Panerai and watches in general.
It may seem odd to introduce a new model that celebrates the sun when we're approaching the darkest time of the year here in Sweden. However, it was about this time last year when GoS Watches first got the idea. Its not such a bad idea after all to rem
The jury of the 13th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) has spoken and unveiled the winners yesterday evening, Friday November 15th 2013.
