    A $20 Item Every Gentleman Should Own & The Importance Of Strategy Gaming + The Rajasthan Chess Set
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Jan 13, 2018
    Nobody can deny that daily exercise and working hard are some of the most important and essential contributing factors to a successful, happy, and healthy life. But often we forget that it is not only our bodies that need maintaining, but our minds too.

    In today's video video I share an item I believe everyone should consider owning - a handmade chess set I recently bought online. I discuss the health benefits of strategy gaming and why it is one of my favorite pastimes to help relax, stimulate my mind, and have fun with others. I discuss a brief history of chess, my favorite strategy computer games, and why chess is the king of all games.

    A Legend Returns After 100 Years - The Coolest Oris Reissue Yet - 1917 Automatic Pilot Watch Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Jan 16, 2018
    Today I am reacquainted with a watch I saw in Switzerland last year, which left a lasting impression. The Oris Big Crown 1917 (01 732 7736 4081) automatic pilot's watch is a 2017 limited edition reissue of a timepiece that is not only from the early days of aviation, but closely tied to the history of the brand itself.

    In a watch market oversaturated with mid-century and vintage inspired re-issues, this watch takes it all the way back to the turn of the century and the early days of wristwatches, resulting in something unique, classy, and refreshing. Whether you are a budding Red Baron, or just want to add a pilot watch with flare to your collection, this is definitely worth checking out.

    5 Years With The Submariner - How My Perceptions Of The Most Iconic Rolex Watch Have Changed
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Jan 19, 2018
    In the coming weeks, I’ll celebrate the 5 year anniversary marking the acquisition of my Rolex Submariner (Reference 116610LN) for a milestone birthday.

    The Sub (or Subby as I call it) has always been a grail watch for me, and out of all the watches in my current collection, it’s the one I’ve had the pleasure of owning for the longest time. One could almost say it’s a pillar of the collection or the main battleship of the fleet!

    In this video I discuss the general perception of the watch among enthusiasts, how it relates to other watches I own or have experienced, my own changing feelings towards it, and what I would like to change about it if I could. Do I still consider this the greatest Rolex watch of all time? Watch to find out!

    **Rolex's Most COMPLICATED Modern Watch: The SKY-DWELLER | RANT&H**

    In this week's episode of RANT&H, Christian dives into the more technical side of one of Rolex's most FASCINATING modern releases: the Sky-Dweller.

    While it may not seem the bit on the surface, the Sky-Dweller is actually Rolex's most complicated production model at present. The Sky-Dweller combines both the Annual Calendar and the Dual Time Zone complications to create a piece that, if we're being honest, looks far simpler than that. While Rolex certainly has a history of producing more complicated pieces, this is the most complicated modern production model by far.

    So what's an annual calendar do, exactly? Well, in short, it's a date complication that is inherently aware of which months have 30 and which ones have 31 days. Unlike a perpetual calendar, though, it has NO clue what to do about the jump from February to March. Unlike how the month is traditionally displayed (via a subdial), Rolex uses a red indicator behind each of the hour markers, corresponding with the number of each month. It's a really interesting, unique way to reimagine the traditional date display, and I really dig it.

    As for the Dual-Time indicator, that one's a bit more obvious. There's a disc in the center of the dial that is marked with numbers from 1-24, and the triangle on that subdial indicates which hour it is in the second time zone. What gets insane, though, is the ability to control all of this through one crown, without any extra pushers or crowns for the complications. This is accomplished thanks to the so-called "Command Bezel" which, depending on how it's set, indicates to the crown which feature of the watch it's controlling. It's incredibly fascinating, complicated, and looks pretty badass in the process.

    SIHH 2018 Day 1 Rewind: Featured Watch Brands, New Watch Models
    WatchBox Studios



    Published on Jan 15, 2018
    “Day One” of Watchbox’s SIHH 2018 luxury watch deep-dive began in the new Carré des Horlogers, a collection of the independent watchmakers and independent watch brands that have gravitated to SIHH from Baselworld over the last half-decade. As Baselworld had shrunk, premier independent brands including MB&F, HYT, and (Kari) Voutilainen have found their natural home among peers in the Carré des Horlogers.

    MB&F led the line with its HM8 MoonMachine 2, a collaboration with Max Busser’s “friend” Stepan Sarpaneva. The MB&F HM8 features a number of Sarpaneva’s signature design cues including his “corona” halo and man-in-the-moon moonphase blazon with… Sarpaneva’s own face. 12 pieces will be offered in each of titanium, blackened titanium, and titanium with rose gold. The MB&F Legacy Machine 2 Split-Escapement was on hand to demonstrate MB&F’s latest interpretation of “retro-futurism” in high horology.

    HYT joined the fray in 2016, but SIHH 2017 marked the hydro-mechanical watch brand’s first serious set of new model launches at the Geneva venue. HYT launched both the yellow-gold HYT H0 lug-less watch and a lug-less version of its existing HYT H2 model, now dubbed “H20.”

    Jerome DeWitt marked his brand debut at SIHH with a personal touch from him and his business manager, his wife Viviane. The DeWitt watch brand is undergoing a reorganization and rebirth for 2018, and the Jerome DeWitt took great personal pride in sharing his timepieces led by the new automatic DeWitt Academia Endless Drive, a scrolling time display with power reserve.

    The brand from Le Sentier enters 2018 with a new model line: Polaris by Jaeger-LeCoultre. The full-line Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection launches on 50th anniversary of the original 1968 Polaris – the definitive model – and the 10th anniversary of the limited-edition Tribute to Polaris. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection includes the Polaris Automatic, Polaris Date, Polaris Chronograph, and the Polaris Chronograph WT/ World Time. Watchbox Studios is proud to feature all versions of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection individually and in a full-family panning shot.

    Girard-Perregaux wants SIHH 2018 to be remembered as the year of the Laureato. The Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph is the headliner for 2018, but it is by no means alone. The Laureato Automatic Ceramic, the Laureato Skeleton Flying Tourbillon offered diversity of complication and materials. At the head of the class was a world premiere, the Girard-Perregaux Triple-Axis Tourbillon Minute Repeater. The colossal 48mm titanium repeater features exceptional chiming volume and a tourbillon that pivots – simultaneously – on three axis. Appropriately, a grand complication deserves a grand price, and the Girard-Perregaux Triple Axis Tourbillon Minute Repeater commands a cool $400,000 U.S.

    IWC Schaffhausen marks an anniversary of its own at SIHH 2018.
    IWC’s 150th Jubilee collection is topped by a flagship complication, the IWC Portugieser Constant Force. The watch, IWC reference 5902-02, features an oversized tourbillon with deadbeat seconds, a constant force mechanism, a 96-hour power reserve, and a moonphase display. The watch, a grand complication, is powered by the manual-wind caliber 94805. As a rarity among rarities, the 46mm platinum IWC Portugieser Constant Force is limited series of 15 pieces priced at roughly $250,000 U.S. It is the rarest and most costly of IWC’s 150th anniversary limited editions.

    The IWC Portuguieser Chronograph Automatic – the bestselling IWC Portuguese model of all time – receives a comprehensive redesign for 2018. Now designated reference 3716, the Portugeiser Chronograph Automatic gains an IWC manufacture caliber 69355 to replace the former Valjoux 7750.

    Vacheron Constantin opens its 2018 account with a new entry-level collection dubbed “Vacheron Constantin FiftySix.” All units of the Vacheron Constantin FiftySix collection are automatic, 40mm, and available in either pink gold or stainless steel. The FiftySix collection includes the Date, Day-Date, and Triple Calendar with moonphase. All examples are styled to include a multi-surface dial with a sunburst metallic hour track and a frosted/opaline center dial.

    Roger Dubuis enters 2018 with a heavy heart and renewed sense of purpose following the late 2017 passing of its namesake founder. The 2017 Lamborghini collaboration continues unabated at SIHH 2018. The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Aventador S is designed to take cues from the V12 engine of the Lamborghini Aventador supercar. Its twin balances are connected via a differential gear coupling that averages and cancels the error from each independent escapement.
