    The Retter Mistral An Accessible Thin Dress Watch with Style

    Retter isn’t a brand that many are familiar with as its first watch launched only a couple of years ago, the 22 Automatic. It was a solid first effort with the always popular integrated sports watch aesthetic, but the follow-up Mistral is a more mature and elegant dress watch, with a truly ultra-thin case (a term a bit too loosely thrown around). Both the case and dials have interesting, well thought designs that are above the microbrand norm, while the hand-wound Swiss movement really completes the package. It’s quite a leap from the 22 Automatic, which was already an impressive inaugural watch, and it comes with a palatable price to…

    Energising Summer Colours for the Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton

    Rado is synonymous with high-tech ceramic, which is used to great effect on its sleek, geometric designs and vintage models alike. Rado’s 1962 Captain Cook dive watch, resurrected in 2017, was given a high-tech plasma ceramic makeover in 2021. Not only did it feature a ceramic case and bracelet, but its dial was also skeletonised to reveal the movement. In this same vein, Rado releases a duet of Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton models with vibrant coloured bezels for some fun in the sun. The new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Skeleton models come in 43mm navy blue ceramic cases with a height of 14.6mm, a ceramic screw-down crown and 300m…

    Chopard Mille Miglia

    Making a watch truly feel authentic to a particular pastime, subculture, or market segment is an incredibly long, laborious process. Ideally, the watch in question should be associated with the desired location for decades or more, with untold thousands of hours and millions of dollars in marketing efforts to reinforce the message — take, for example, the more than half-century Omega has taken to relentlessly push the Speedmaster as the first watch worn on the moon to make it the de facto choice for space-minded watch enthusiasts. In short, authenticity is a slow and expensive game in the watch industry, which makes the Chopard Mille Miglia series all the more…

    Bell & Ross BR 03 White Steel & Gold Watch

    While Bell & Ross produces a fairly wide assortment of models, it is the classic square-shaped BR 03 collection that is most emblematic of the brand’s distinct design language. Last year, this popular silhouette got a significant overall that introduced a slimmed down 41mm case, and for its latest release of 2024, Bell & Ross has introduced a two-tone version of the time-and-date model from the collection. Officially known as the Bell & Ross BR 03 White Steel & Gold, the new timepiece rather appropriately features an opaline white dial paired with stainless steel and rose gold components, and it offers a noticeably more dressy take on the brand’s single…

Today I’ll share with you some of the biggest and smallest specimens in the HSNY library.

    Formula 1 Legend Michael Schumacher’s Watches

    Sometimes, it’s not really about the watch; it’s about the story. Paul Newman’s “Paul Newman” Daytona wasn’t the best example of the model, but it was his “Paul Newman.” And then there are times – like this week at Christie’s Geneva sale – when you have watches that are a little bit of both.
