The watch industry is facing tough times, and offering more affordable pieces that present a real value proposition for buyers is an obvious way to reach a larger market. For mainstream luxury brands like Breitling, this means more bang-for-buck pieces like the new Colt Skyracer that we have here. In covering the release of the Breitling Colt Skyracer Watches here, we said that it has an “extremely reasonable price" at around $2,000.
As mid-range luxury fashion watches go, Gucci Swiss Designer Watches Online produces some rather cool stuff. For 2017, the Gucci Dive collection has a few interesting models that seek to combine the appeal of a sport watch with the look of embroidered fabric or printed rubber. This isn't just uncommon in general, but very uncommon for men's watches. In fact, outside of some Hublot watches for women, these are among the only watches I've seen that demonstrate this decorative embroidery technique on the dial.
March LA.B recently announced a new and very limited edition of their AM3 model which has been made exclusively for the Paris based retailer Colette. Limited to only five pieces, the AM3 Legionnaire Limited Edition is an intriguing design which mixes the recognizable style and flare we expect from March LA.B with a color scheme that pays tribute to the historic French Foreign Legion (of the 19th century).
The Speedmaster, otherwise known as the first Swiss Omega in space, has a longstanding and dramatic history with NASA. Launched in 1957, the watch has accompanied NASA astronauts on numerous missions—including the ill-fated Apollo 13 voyage to the Moon, during which astronaut Jack Swigert used his Speedmaster to accurately time the now-famous course correction of their crippled craft, bringing the crew safely home.
A couple of months ago, Robert-Jan had the opportunity to give an overview of the new collection. The watches are an interesting move from Omega Mens Watch as they were introduced outside of Basel and the debut actually occurred in New York. There’s no doubt that it has made waves. We received a lot of traffic on the article and while most found the watches attractive, most wanted to see them in the metal – umm, ceramic as it were – before rendering judgment.
