    A Preview Of My Switzerland Tour - Loves, Regrets & How It Has Changed My Perception Of Watches
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 21, 2017
    In today's video, I share a sneak peek of the videos to come over the next few months, exclusively shot in Switzerland! I discuss my first impressions of the country, things I loved, and a few things I regret. I answer two big questions:

    1. Has my perception of watches changed?
    2. Which watch did I buy during my travels in the holy land of horology and watchmaking?

    Today, we're going to look at a gem of a dive watch, the Citizen BN-0191 Promaster Diver. With all the functionality of high end diver, at a price that's less than the tax you'd pay on a Submariner, the Promaster's a great choice for diving, for sporting, and for just wearing a watch.

    Duel For The Best Everyday Luxury Watch ($2000 to $4000) - Rolex DateJust Vs Tudor Prince Date-Day
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 26, 2017
    When it comes to the best luxury watch from $2000 to $4000, few can compete with the Rolex DateJust. I should know, I have owed 3 of them over the years myself. What makes this a champion in this price range is it's versatility not only in verity but from the pool to the boardroom. With strong value retention, sporty robustness mixed with dressy elegance, accuracy and above all, luxury quality. So how does one of my personal favourites, the Tudor Date-Day compare? In this video I duel and compare my latest Tudor 76200 I recently acquired to my wife's classic Rolex DateJust 16233.

    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 28, 2017
    Today I am joined by my Rolex Explorer brother GCR, who traveled with me on my recent tour of Switzerland. We both wore our Explorers during our adventures in the holy land of horology. However, now that we are both home, it's been nice to wear some old favourites, share our recent Switzerland inspired acquisitions, and just talk watches.

    The Ultimate New Luxury Rattrapante Watch - Breitling Navitimer Split Second Chronograph Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Oct 31, 2017
    There are many Swiss iconic chronographs, but the Navitimer is without question towards the top of the list. It's heritage, history of innovation, cult following and pop culture appeal will forever keep it there. Today I review one of my favourite 2017 Baselworld releases, finally! This new Navitimer (Ref. AB031021) not only boasts a rattrapante split time chronograph but also a new in-house movement, and a truly ingenious one too! Once the ultimate aviation tool watch, now turned luxury icon, it finally has some new horological muscle to keep it's dominance as at the top of that list.

    A massive thank you to Saltzman's for lending in this stunning watch so I could film this review.. For a reputable authorised dealer as well a for watch repairs that I personally use, check them out here:

    The MeisterSinger Neo One-handed Watch: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Nov 6, 2017
    Today, we'll take a look at an odd but interesting little watch, the MeisterSinger Neo. It's very nice, but requires a very specific view of time, and a specific view of value. So, although I love the idea, and they've done lots right, ultimately, this one handily left my heart.

    I Watched Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona Sell For $18 Million | RANT&H
    Theo and Harris



    Published on Nov 6, 2017
    Christian talks about attending the Phillips auction and seeing Paul Newman’s Paul Newman sell as the most expensive wristwatch ever!


    **I Watched Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona Sell For $18 Million | RANT&H**

    In this week’s episode of RANT&H, Christian dives head first into his experience at the Phillips Auction last month, where he got to witness the legendary Paul Newman Daytona owned by the piece’s namesake being sold. Not only was he (by the grace of Paul himself) able to land a seat with the ten people who passed the application process to even BID on the thing, but he did manage to nab a few other incredible experiences that night.

    The highlight, if you ask him, is watching those people, so many of whom would be content wiping their faces with stacks of hundred dollar bills and not batting an eye, get jealous over little things the way some collectors would over a perfectly aligned SKX bezel. Collecting truly is, after all, a universal emotion, even if the hardware sells for $17.8 million instead of $178

    Enjoy!

    A Jaeger-LeCoultre Exclusive - Tour Of The Luxury Watchmaker, Grand Complications & GyroTourbillon
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Nov 7, 2017
    Today we kick off a series recently filmed during my 2017 Switzerland tour. In this first episode I visit one of my favourite Swiss luxury watch makers, and share the journey from raw materials to finished timepiece with a brand renowned for their in-house manufacturing. Jaeger-LeCoultre is like no other brand, with a long history of innovation and a plethora of iconic timepieces that proudly bear their name. In this exclusive, behind the scenes video, we take a look at some astounding ATMOS clocks, highlights from their museum, and awe inspiring watches featuring many of their grand complications. From the famous Reverso, to a duo-metre chronograph, a perpetual calendar with a Tourbillon, and of course, their insanely cool GyroTourbillons, Jaeger-LeCoultre is truly a legendary brand.

    IT COSTS HOW MUCH?? - High Horology On A Budget - Glashutte Original

    In today's episode of Federico Talks Watches I talk about High Horology watches, specifically if you want to buy a high horology watch on a budget. I think one of the kings of this segment is Glashutte Original. Glashutte Original is a small watchmaker from Germany that makes some very high end luxury watches. On the pre owned market they can be had at the fraction of their original price... High horology watches on a budget are not an easy thing to achieve!

    5 Watches Under $200 That Will Double In Value - From Star Trek To Retro Chic & Modern Art
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Nov 10, 2017
    In a previous video (linked below) I looked at watches mostly from my own collection, plus pieces that I have had experience with under $500 which I believed would double in value. Today I challenged myself to find 5 watches all under $200 that would do the same. The result was a fun hunt with some rather interesting and bizarre pieces that I am sharing with you here. Included is a bizarre Swiss made abstract art inspired piece, a watch with a flying Star Trek Enterprise, one of the coolest retro looking nautical racing chronographs, and a piece featuring a rare evolutionary step in the history of digital watches.

    Industry Insider - Where To Buy The Best Quality Microbrand Watches & 5 Brands You Should Know!
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Nov 13, 2017
    Buying microbrand watches can be extremely rewarding and equally risky. The reward is you can find gems that few others own and that are different in design to the mainstream offerings. Often, microbrand watches offer amazing value for money and a welcome alternative to the tried and tested brands we all know and love.

    The risk is there are simply so many out there to choose from, often not very good in quality and offering little in terms of security when buying online.

    What if I told you there is a website run by an industry veteran with decades of experience, offering super high end brands? A place where you can buy from a professional and quality is assured?

    Today I catch up with my good friend John Keil to discuss 5 of his favourite microbrands and where to buy them with confidence.

    Seiko Presage Watches - Not Just For "Cocktail Time"
    Long Island Watch



    Published on Nov 15, 2017
    Today's video is all about the Seiko Presage "Cocktail Time" automatic watch. A few months back, we brought you the premier of the Seiko USA "Cocktail" inspired pieces that took thier design cues from the ever popular SARB065. But there is more to Presage than the "Cocktail" watches. Presage is a higher echelon of watches within the Seiko lineup that deserve your attention.

    Every Presage watch has three characteristics:
    1) Spron material for the mainspring and hairspring
    2) Seiko's Magic Lever for efficient winding
    3) Diashock protection for the balance wheel.

    We will show you 4 beautiful Presage Automatic Dress Watches, and at the end we will dress up a Seiko USA Presage with a gorgeous strap to show you a completely different look.

    Story of an Icon: (Breguet) Type XX Pilot's Chronograph
    Armand The Watch Guy



    Published on Nov 15, 2017
    In this video, I would like to discuss the Type XX pilot's watch which is most known as a model from Breguet but which, in truth, was manufactured by multiple brands including Breguet, Dodane, Vixa & Auricoste. This model rose to fame through it's creation for the French Airforce as a flyback chronograph for the military pilot and remains and icon to this day.

    The Classiest & Best Value Automatic Dress Watch Under $500 - Orient Star Elegant Classic Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Nov 15, 2017
    Today I return to a watch brand that has not been featured on the Urban Gentry channel for a few years, and I review a hidden gem of a dress watch. The Orient "Elegant" Classic (EL09001W) is a very traditionally designed piece that has all the classy looks of a Patek 3802, or even a Breguet Classique, but at a fraction of the price. With an entirely made in Japan in-house automatic movement, astonishing detail, and a modest size, is it any wonder I had to review it?

    Sadly it is no longer in production, but this rather forgotten timepiece is still available for purchase from many online retailers, and is still an excellent value proposition when buying new. To top it all off, it performed excellently and would work equally well on a gentleman as well as on a lady's wrist. With only a few flaws, this could very well be one of the best watches of its genre to buy new at its price point.

    Which Holy Trinity Watch Should I Buy? - AP, Patek, Vacheron Constantin + Unboxing My Latest Diver
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Nov 21, 2017
    In today's quick video I seek the Gentry's advice. It has been almost 2 years since my life changing experience at Harrods of London trying on the A.Lange & Sohne Langematik. And understandably, it subsequently became my long term grail watch. However, I know all to well how short life can be and before I spend that kind of money, (and get very old in the process of saving) maybe I should consider a more affordable alternative? It just so happens that recently I fell in love with a similar watch from the famous "Holy Trinity"(Patek, AP & VC) and now perhaps my plans have changed. But before I make my moves, I hand it over to the most knowledgeable and experienced watch enthusiast community of all, the Gentry! So please share and vote on your nominations in the comments.

    I then conclude this video with an unboxing and first impression of my final purchase for my watch collection for 2017. A very cool diver indeed with some rather nifty design elements indeed.

    **Talking Two-Tone Daytonas, White Gold Submariners, & Everose Yachtmasters | ASKTNH LIVE**

    In this week's episode of ASKTNH LIVE, Christian tackles the hardest hitting questions of the week from the watchfam over on our Instagram (@theoandharris, wink wink).

    We start off with a question concerning whether wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date at 28 years old makes you a bit of a douche (short version - no, not unless you are wearing the watch and ALSO a douche).

    From there, we get into one of the most interesting debates I've ever heard: does wearing a two-tone Rolex Daytona mean that you couldn't muster up the money for a solid gold one? Me being a fan of two-tone, the obvious answer is "of course not." Some people tend not to agree, though, making it an interesting discussion.

    Then, we dig into Christian's opinion of white gold Submariners, specifically the "Smurf." Is it the ultimate under-the-radar kind of watch? If you ask me, just about any white gold piece would qualify for that distinction.

    Lastly, we respond to a viewer's conundrum: Everose Yachtmaster 40 or Patek Nautilus? Want to see the answer to that one? Hang tight to the end of the video, and make sure to tune in to our Instagram feed to be able to take part in next week's episode of ASKTNH LIVE!
