    On Moser Specialties

    I love H.Moser & Cie. As a brand they are synonymous with amazing fume dial as well as beautifully designed cases. They are another brand where everything is just right, down to the size and shape of the crown. Over the years we’ve come to expect something zany and utterly original from Moser. Back in 2017 we received the cheese watch. A 1/1 Moser with a case made of Swiss cheese. Video here. In 2018, we got the watch who shall not be named. An homage, if you will, representing many of the major players in the game. We wrote. about it previously here. In 2019 we got the Nature…

    Presidential Watch Antics: The Joe Biden Interview

    Wednesday saw the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden.  After a difficult few years, the country is looking forward to getting back on track, defeating covid and winning, again.  We were able to get a few minutes of the recently crowned President’s time the day after the inauguration.  What did we talk about?  Watches, cars, and hype. Fake Alligator: Mr. President, firstly I want to congratulate you on the hard-fought battle in the election and whatever came after it. President Joe Biden: Thanks, so much, Marc.  You know, nothing last year was easy, but this year and for the next eight years we’re going to…

    Every year we write up a bunch of random cheap and expensive things for you to gift your friends and family and enemies. I know this list is coming a bit late, mid-December, but nothing matters this year.

It’s now become a yearly tradition to include something from Tiffany’s Everyday Objects collection. This year is no different featuring a lovely flower pot. For…

    Richard Mille Drops new Pharrell Williams Reference: RM 52-05

    Earlier this week Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille announced their newest reference, the RM 52-05 Pharrell Williams. The second of their collaborations is a manual winding tourbillon movement with hours and minutes. Pharrell Williams is a musician, producer, designer and all-around renaissance man. I first became aware of him through N*E*R*D music in the early 00s. In Search of… is one my favorite albums of all time. He produced so many hit singles in the last 20 years it would be difficult to find a top ten list of any rap or pop chart without a Pharrell / Neptunes produced track. The case color is a great match for the dial…

    The New York City Concours

    Saturday October 5 saw a Concours d’Elegance on the rooftop of the giant new Pier 17 complex in lower Manhattan.  After a 10 minute walk from the subway toward the East River we arrived and were greeted by a coupe of vintage Lincolns and a beautiful Orange Bronco.  With the sun setting, the Manhattan skyline provided a nice backdrop to a beautiful group of cars from all over the United States. After picking up our tickets at the box office, we proceeded through the metal detectors, I had to go through twice.  The first time I took out my two key rings.  The second time I woke up and remembered to take out…
