    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Sep 11, 2017
    Today, we'll geek out a bit about watch lume, discussing Tritium Tube based lume, and contrasting it with chemical lumes ('Superluminova', 'Chromabright', 'Lumibrite', and other strontium alumate formulations). And we'll give a final conclusion as to which is probably best for your wrist.

    A Future Art-Deco Classic - Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Aerolithe Flyback Chronograph Watch Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Sep 22, 2017
    Move aside Rolex Daytona, Zenith El-Primero and Omega Speedmaster, because there's a new, cooler luxury racing chronograph in town!

    Today we take a first look at the amazing innovations of the Swiss brand Parmigiani Fleurier. We also review a very cool automatic chronograph inspired by the (almost mythical) Bugatti Aerolithe. This very unique Art Deco styled watch not only contains an in-house movement but is also a flyback chronograph. It seamlessly blends the elegance of the 1930s iconic car with a modern twist constructed with cutting edge contemporary laser engraving for flawless results.

No matter if you are a 1-watch person or have an extensive line up of timepieces, you will undoubtedly find something here useful, and the best thing is that most of these items make great gifts too. In this video I also share a sneak peek at one of my latest acquisitions, a stunning and rare yacht timer from Citizen.

    1. A spring bar tool. I recommend and use the Bergeon 6767-F:
    https://www.amazon.com/Bergeon-6767-F...

    The Gemini Astronauts' Choice & Most Underrated $1000 Pilot Watch - Fortis Spacematic Stealth Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Sep 28, 2017
    Chosen by the US astronauts themselves during training for the 1960s Gemini Space program, the Fortis Spacematic automatic has to be one of the most underappreciated watches designed for space. Today I take a look the latest 2017 update to the historic but rather forgotten line of watches called the "Stealth." This newer Spacematic has heavy flieger pilot watch design cues, a splash of its own retro 60s personality and yet it also has up to date modern materials and ruggedness. With the horologically important Fortis heritage behind it, modest dimensions, and affordable price tags, this is one amazing quality watch for the money.

    To view my review of the iconic Cosmonaut Chronograph from Fortis that was mentioned in the video, click here:

    Adjusting Mechanical Watch Day/Date Precautions & Best Time To Change Date - Watch And Learn #36
    Long Island Watch



    Published on Sep 28, 2017
    Most mechanical watch manufacturer's tell you not to adjust the day or date between the hours of 9pm and 3am. Why not? Well, you can pretty easily damage the movement such that it needs to be repaired by a watchmaker.

    Maybe you know this, and have heard this. But do you know WHY you cannot do it? Have you ever seen the mechanics in motion? Join us today as we dismantle a Seiko watch to show you how the day and date mechanically changeover, and why you should never, ever, change the day or date anywhere near midnight while setting your watch. We hope you enjoy this one!

    Under $200 Dress Watch Duel - MVMT Classic Vs Universal Genève - Fashion Watch & 60s Swiss Compared
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Sep 30, 2017
    A few weeks ago I snagged a bargain vintage 1960's Universal Genève calibre 42 off the used market. Rather than reviewing it, I decided, why not compare and duel it against it's modern equivalent?! So today, the infamous and highly successful fashion quartz "classic" watch from MVMT goes up against my manual wind beauty from Universal Genève. Both minimalist, both dress watches (supposedly), both between $100 and $200, but how do they compare? Who makes the best dress watch between them? Today it's a new millennial up start against a horological legend, brand amazon new verses vintage mid century, who will win? Feel free to follow along with you own scores.

    Why the Apple Watch is Not a Threat to the Swiss Watch Industry
    Armand The Watch Guy



    Published on Oct 1, 2017
    In this video, I would like to address the concerns that the release of the Apple Watch Series 3 will damage the Swiss Watch industry and also discuss the reasons for which I feel the industry is making such siginificant losses in recent years. These include sales, political changes and economic fluctuation.

    Why I Bought Another Tudor & How To Get The Perfect Customized Dive Watch + A Rare 1950s Seiko
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 2, 2017
    If you have ever wanted a bespoke dive watch made affordably by a professional, this is the video for you! No matter if you want it to look like exactly like a Rolex Submariner, a Tudor Black Bay perhaps, or your own crazy and totally unique design, there is no better brand to do it with than Seiko. Earlier in the year I had my own Seiko SKX007 customized, well this time I went a little deeper with a Seiko SNZH57 and had the movement to the lume and everything in between upgraded. The best part is, it's fun and you get to have the watch exactly how you want it. The result? True love! Not only do I share my latest mod project, I take a look at a very cool rare 1950s Seiko and also I unveil my latest big purchase, yes, another Tudor!

    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 4, 2017
    Today I review a brand new watch close to my heart. What started as a dream nearly a year ago, has finally become a reality! In this long awaited premiere video, I take a look at a limited edition 1521 50 Atoms I designed myself. This cult automatic dive watch now has a new addition to the line, a no date TGV version! Made with the official new Urban Gentry colours and named after the predator kings of land and sea, this is one of the most exclusive 1521's ever released.

    Armand The Watch Guy



    Published on Oct 8, 2017
    In this video, I would like to discuss some very interesting and novel watches released over the past month. It certainly can be said that it has been a very full month for watch lovers with everything from novel materials from IWC, sublime dress watches from Vacheron Constantin and a spectacular creation from A. Lange & Sohne. I haven't, however, included the new models from Doxa or Audemars Piguet as these have already sold out (to inside buyers before the release in the case of the DOXA).

    The Best Affordable Vintage Inspired Chronograph Around $200 - Dan Henry 1939 Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 10, 2017
    Dan Henry is an extremely interesting brand that has become an increasingly hot topic among watch enthusiasts. Named after a prolific collector, the Dan Henry brand draws inspiration from his own vast and impressive collection. The result is a series of watches based on some of the most iconic timepieces from the 30s, 40s, 60s, and 70s but still with their own style, just enough to set them apart. Today we take a look at the 1939, and as the name suggests, this has elements of some of the most iconic chronographs of that era. With hints of the legendary Longines calibre 13ZN and cues from the Tissot calibre 33.3, along with many more, it is quite possibly the classiest chronograph in its price range. As we all know, these classic watches from the 30s and 40s are notoriously expensive, rare and risky to buy, so what happens if you want the look without the risk? No matter if you are a seasoned watch connoisseur or just getting into watches, this is a serious value proposition to consider. How is this all achieved for such an affordable price, and what are the negatives? Today, we find out!

    Story of an Icon: Omega Seamaster 300

    Published on Oct 15, 2017
    In this video, I would like to discuss the relatively short-lived but truly legendary Seamaster 300 from its inception in 1957 to its end in 1969. This runs from the classic CK 2913 with broadarrow hands to the famous military 165.024.
