Rolex spotted...

I have always liked the 3 guys from Top Gear (ex), currently The Grand Tour and I do like other shows and documentaries with them as the host. Recently I was watching Richard Hammond's Big. It is his new documentary on Discovery. It is a pretty cool documentary. 

Anyway...spotted this on the episode on US Air Force Super Plane (Episode 2 if I am not mistaken). I don't think I have seen Hamster wearing this before, so it must be new.

It is the Rolex GMT-Master II reference 116710LN. Looks like the Hamster is adding to his collection of Rolex watches. Cool....

Panerai 2020 Exhibition...

Yesterday I got invited to an exhibition. It was an exhibition held by Panerai and it was held at Wotancraft. It was not a big gathering but it was an interesting exhibition. 

Sadly I did not manage to take any photographs of watches as some of the watches on exhibit were prototypes and we were not allowed to take photographs of the watches.

However I did get a couple of photographs showing how some of the new cases from Panerai is made and the technology that goes behind making those cases. I do have to say it was very interesting.

Here goes....

Apologies for no photographs of watches but I have to say that from what I saw, I have to say that Panerai have indeed step up their game and the overall quality and finish of the watches have indeed improved from the days when I was collecting Panerai. Who knows, maybe one day I will get back into collecting Panerai again.

Seiko 5 watches Update...

Yesterday I posted on the new Seiko 5 watches that was released recently. Here are some updates...

The watches comes in at 40mm in diameter and is 11.5 mm thin. The lug to lug is 44mm and the lug width is 20mm. The watch does have a display back and like other watches in the new Seiko 5 range (thus far) does not have a screw down crown. The watch is rated to 100M water resistance.

And best of all?

It has lug holes and it has shoulder-less spring bars. I like. 

Anyway that is all I have at the moment. Do look out for a review of the watch soon. :)
