Time and Tide Watches | 23. Feb 2016 03:08 |

Time and Tide Watches | 22. Feb 2016 03:18 |

FRIDAY WIND DOWN: 19th February, 2016

Time and Tide Watches | 19. Feb 2016 08:58 |

Sit down, relax, take off your shoes. Here, let me pour you a tall glass of Pinot Noir, because this is Australia and summer is nowhere to be seen. It’s weird weather in Melbourne, the working week is done – so it’s time to kick back and enjoy our weekly wrap of watch news. …

MY WATCH STORY: David’s vintage Cyma Navystar and Omega Flightmaster

Time and Tide Watches | 19. Feb 2016 01:28 |

Editor’s Note: Watches rarely make headlines in Australia, but the recent story of a group of Liberal MPs ‘accidentally’ accepting $250k worth of watches from a visiting billionaire pushed them very much to the fore. David Langsam wrote a very astute opinion piece on the …

VIDEO: Summertime, superheroes and a new, alarmingly affordable TAG Heuer tourbillon (Carrera Heuer-02T)

Time and Tide Watches | 18. Feb 2016 03:58 |

A few weeks ago, at the height of the Australian summer, TAG Heuer highjacked Sydney. There’s no other way to say it. They took the most prominent, prestigious patch of lawn in front of the Opera House, in sight of the bridge, and put up a marquee. They then placed their …

HANDS-ON: The Bulgari Diagono Scuba

Time and Tide Watches | 18. Feb 2016 02:48 |

There’s a genre of watches that I like to call the ‘do-anything-go-anywhere’ category. The defining characteristics of this type of watch are, as you would expect, to look good – and function – in a diverse range of everyday situations – emphasis on the ‘everyday’. These …

INSIGHT: Visiting the Nomos manufacture in Glashütte

Time and Tide Watches | 17. Feb 2016 06:58 |

I didn’t know much about Nomos when I told Time+Tide I was going to be in the Glashütte area. They did minimal watches. They did some in-house movements. The Time+Tide team seem pretty into them. That was about it. Still, there was enough intrigue to put my hand up for a …

INSIGHT: The making of Tudor’s fabric watch straps

Time and Tide Watches | 16. Feb 2016 05:13 |

As anyone who’s handled a watch from Tudor’s heritage line knows, the watches come on a leather strap or metal bracelet as standard, but they also come with a very cool additional fabric strap in the box. What you might not know about is the degree of thoughtfulness and …

LIST: Six watches to lift your look

Time and Tide Watches | 15. Feb 2016 04:48 |

Finding the right watch to match your wardrobe can be surprisingly tricky – all too often your wrist overpowers (or worse – underwhelms) the rest of your outfit. But when it’s done well the watch not only looks good with your outfit, but makes it. Here are six of …

EDITOR’S PICK: Menswear painter and illustrator Sunflowerman interprets the Longines Pulsometer Chronograph (with review, …

Time and Tide Watches | 13. Feb 2016 09:48 |

Editor’s Note: It’s been almost a year since we worked with that man of vision and watercolour paints, Matt Miller, more commonly known as ‘Sunflowerman’. At Basel 2015 he spent a lot of time at the Longines booth, much more time in our HQ apartment around the corner, and …

FRIDAY WIND DOWN: 12th February, 2016, (Valentine’s Day Watch Guide Edition)

Time and Tide Watches | 12. Feb 2016 07:08 |

Love, to quote John Paul Young, is in the air. So is rampant consumerism. The world’s most romantic/over-rated day (depending on your perspective/relationship status/cynicism level) is a few days away, so there’s still time to grab that perfect something to express your …

NEWS: Bell & Ross partner with Renault Sport Formula One Team

Time and Tide Watches | 12. Feb 2016 03:38 |

Formula One and fine watches have always gone hand-in-hand. Late last year TAG Heuer shocked the F1 community when they announced they would be ceasing their 30-year relationship with McLaren, instead becoming a power unit (AKA the engine) sponsor for Red Bull Racing. In …

Time and Tide Watches | 11. Feb 2016 04:53 |

IN-DEPTH: The TAG Heuer Connected

Time and Tide Watches | 10. Feb 2016 07:23 |

The story in a second: TAG Heuer’s Swiss-designed smartwatch has been touted as the ‘traditional’ watch industry’s much-hyped answer to the Apple Watch – but what’s it like in real life, on the wrist? And not just for a minute, a week… I’ve been reviewing watches for going …

NEWS: Oops, they did it again – Aussie politicians accept $250k worth of ‘fake’ watches

Time and Tide Watches | 10. Feb 2016 05:38 |

UPDATE: 11th February, see here for WA Liberal MP Ian Goodenough’s response to the fake watch gifting controversy, a third person and yet still strangely personal watch story about his love for his (apparently very real) Rolex. How could we not publish it? For some, …

INSIGHT: Inside the new Melbourne Rolex Service Centre

Time and Tide Watches | 9. Feb 2016 01:43 |

One of the biggest issues in this industry is what happens to a watch long after it leaves the boutique on the wrist of its happy new owner. Aftersales support and servicing may not be as glamorous as releasing shiny new watches, but it matters. A lot. There’s no quicker …

HANDS-ON: The Stowa Antea Back to Bauhaus

Time and Tide Watches | 5. Feb 2016 05:53 |

Stowa’s range of excellent value watches have been under-the-radar favourites amongst watch lovers for years, with their pilots and marine chronometer-style collections often having waiting lists of several months, as the small German brand doesn’t sacrifice quality for …

INTRODUCING: The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon

Time and Tide Watches | 4. Feb 2016 05:28 |

The TAG Heuer Heuer-02T Tourbillon has been one of the worst kept secrets of the watch industry for the past 12 months. We saw pictures of it on the walls of TAG’s Baselworld booth, and every so often CEO Jean-Claude Biver posts a picture of himself wearing one on …

VIDEO: How to stir-fry, with the Head Chef of Chin Chin (and his Hublot)

Time and Tide Watches | 3. Feb 2016 08:28 |

If you want to learn how to cook an unbelievable braised beef stir-fry just like you’ve had at Melbourne’s most insanely impossible to get into restaurant, Chin Chin, you’d better block out the next three minutes because we’re at home with CC’s Executive Chef Benjamin …

MY WATCH COLLECTION: Anders’s vintage Grand Seikos

Time and Tide Watches | 3. Feb 2016 00:58 |

Editor’s Note: The world of watches is a very small and very global one. The story behind this interview is a case in point. Just before Christmas I received an instagram notification saying, “Felix, you like watches – check this guy out,” from a friend who used to work in …

Time and Tide Watches | 2. Feb 2016 03:18 |

For Jaeger-LeCoultre, SIHH 2016 was all about the Reverso. Their gentrified sports watch turns 85 this year and, proving that you can indeed grow old gracefully, the brand released a series of very handsome tribute pieces. In fact, JLC have launched an entire new Tribute …

VINTAGE BY DEREK DIER: A first date with an Angelus

Time and Tide Watches | 1. Feb 2016 02:18 |

‘Firsts’ of any event are ingrained into our memory. Who doesn’t remember their first kiss, or the taste of a new flavour on the palate? As we age, time becomes even more fluid, seconds and minutes becoming increasingly less important compared to a lifetime of firsts and …

FRIDAY WIND DOWN: January 29, 2016 (Best of SIHH 2016 edition)

Time and Tide Watches | 29. Jan 2016 07:43 |

A week has passed since SIHH, we’ve endured the 24-hour commute back to the office and the jetlag has finally receded. With the help of space, time and some icy cold locally brewed beverages (this list is brought to you by Furphy Refreshing Ale) the hundreds of watches we …

GONE IN 60 SECONDS: The IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII video review

Time and Tide Watches | 29. Jan 2016 07:43 |

In a world where the word is fast losing its value, IWC’s classic pilot’s watch is an icon in the truest sense – a utilitarian workhorse that represents the best about the brand. SIHH 2016 saw IWC give their entire pilot’s collection a revamp, with numerous new references …

OPEN LETTER: How I came to love watches, by Kris Smith

Time and Tide Watches | 28. Jan 2016 07:03 |

Time and Tide Watches | 27. Jan 2016 00:48 |
