After this afternoon’s amazingly exciting Avergers film, I needed something cool to calm myself down in the evening, and this is the one! The Seiko 5 SRP481 ‘Baby Ice Monster’ has made quite a name for itself in the Seiko community and definitely reached cult status with its cool white/silvery dial, brushed SS bezel, great combination of blue, silver and black, arrow hour hand that purists love, and of course a 4R36 movement in Seiko 5 (which is not often!) This piece is extra special to me because it was the first Seiko Mrs Gav.In bought me back when we first started dating. A great watch with a huge reputation and fabulous memories 😊 And sorry about the “4” on the day window, I kept thinking todaybis Thursday 🙈😂

And waaaaaaait for it! The spectacular burst of action of the amazing Hautlence HL Sphere as it passes the top of the hour is a blur of jumping hours and retrograde minutes, and all over for another hour in the blink of the eye. Creativity, innovation and contemporary design are just some of the factors that sets the independent watchmaking sector apart from the masses, and that’s why I’m working with these amazing companies to introduce their world to Ireland - one hi-tech wonder at a time.
From the inventor of the earliest known chronograph, the Louis Moinet Memoris is a breathtakingly spectacular tribute to that important legacy. Featuring sapphire subdials and exposed chronograph mechanism it’s a watch of immense presence and pristine execution. With a hands-on look at the fascinating world of horology, make sure that you don’t miss your regular updates from The Watch Press.
Most recent find: 1951 Certina Automatic with cal. 25-45 . 1951 is the year Certina introduced their first self winding rotor, the 21J 25-45. Around 1953 they changed their logo from a cursive script to an all caps sans serif font. . This watch has an all-stainless steel case, dauphine hands, and drilled lugs. There is a nice, even patina on the dial, and the crown, though unsigned, appears to be original. The case is close to unpolished, with the bevels on the lugs and the engravings on the caseback still sharp. . It is crazy to me that watches this cool, well-made, in such great condition, with amazing in-house movements, can still be found on the ‘Bay for
Something a little bit more sensible on both price and aesthetics. Not nearly as popular as the big box brands like Rolex, but as a small independent German company, #sinn has always struck the right chords with collectors of all types. Great price point, and solid build quality. What more can you really ask for? @watchuseek
