GoS make jaw-droppingly beautiful watches.  If you had the opportunity to handle one of their timepieces at BaselWorld, then you may have failed to notice the hubbub of the great halls for just a few moments while you became entranced by the mystical properties of these unique artisan watch dials and cases.  Now there is a new collection to ogle over, the GoS Bifrost Isblå. Johan Gustafsson works damascus steel like no-one else, under his watchful

6o years ago Longines registered the name "Conquest", now the original typeface appears once again on one of their watch dials, this is the Longines Heritage 1954 - 2014.   For their new collections Longines often look backwards to move forwards, there is vintage-styling aplenty to be found in their portfolio, and when it comes to being sensitive to their original issues, Longines nail it time after time.   Let's get to the nitty gritty - the size.  The

Despite all the technical innovation, artisan dials and bejewelled beauty on show at Baselworld 2014, no watch writer worth his (or her) salt can ignore the latest pieces from Tudor - this is  the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Blue.     In 2010 Tudor were the darlings of Baselworld with their Tudor Heritage Chrono, in 2011 they followed up with the silky, silvered Tudor Heritage Advisor and last year the Heritage Black Bay lounged beneath the dazzling Baselworld

Nemo is alive! I loved Thomas Prescher's Time Capsule Project which gave enthusiasts the chance to be part of and enjoy the creation of his Nemo Collection.  It is a tale which is fictional, yet so authentic that it has captured the imagination of those of us who have followed it from the moment when the diver, who using his last reserve of oxygen and energy cleared the dirt from the name plate of the

Everything that Nomos Glashütte produce is understated and beautifully uncluttered, almost all of us have now dropped the "Glashütte" and now refer to them simply as "Nomos".  Now there's a new line-up of Tetra models entitled the Nomos Berlin set, available with a range of crisp, colourful and rather delightful dial colours. The beauty of the Tetra model is that it combines the signature modernism of Nomos with a small-ish square case which at 29.5mm x

This is masterful horological trickery, an astounding piece from his Régulus Collection, the Vincent Calabrese Hora Nova Tourbillon Regulator. Stripped down to its bare-bones minimum, the movement appears to float, enclosed within a sapphire case presenting a striking panorama.  The Regulator indication reduces the spectacle even further, serving to indicate the minutes whilst the hours are displayed on a sub-dial at three o'clock.  The time setting and winding operation is via a crown on the back

I love writing about watches.  I love writing about people who make watches.  Rarely do I write about a watch brand who have yet to produce a watch, but the story of  the Résilience Watch Company and the individuals behind it is one of such perseverance that it deserves to be told and needs little additional narrative in order to produce a good read. BNB Concept, the specialised watch movement maker was renowned for being a

With a movement which has been skinnied to its bare bones, this is the new Cartier Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton. Spooky, weird and eerie - that's what some of my "non-watchy" friends described this one as and, there are even some watch enthusiasts who feel strongly that such a construction falls foul of displaying just a tad too much hairy wrist on the look-see.  I however am prepared to overlook this detail and come out
