    Every Collection Needs A Beater! The Best Watches Under $50 - Casio Duro & G-Shock DW-5600E Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 15, 2017
    As far back as I remember I always had a "beater" watch in my collection. Many watches may come and gone but it is a task that if I only had a very few pieces, I will always designate at least one in the collection for that role. Even my grandfather had a beater pocket watch for hunting and pottering about in the garden. His was a more robust version of his smarter, solid gold far more expensive main timepiece. So this is nothing new and today I take a look at two highly regarded watches from Casio that offer so much for such a small price tag. The first is the diver styled and quartz powered "Duro" MDV-106 with its handsome classic analog look. The second is the digital G-Shock DW5600E, a modern upgraded descendent of the very first G-Shock from 1983, a true icon of horology and certified by NASA for space missions.

    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 17, 2017

I share a brief version of my watch biography from my very first Casio as a child to recent grail Rolex watches I finally bought as an adult and a lot of fun ones in between.

    A Review Of 3 Super Cool Vintage Watches - Omega Seamaster 166.088 - Seiko Pogue 6139 - 1940s Stowa
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 19, 2017
    Today I review and take a closer look at three killer vintage watches. First up is the retro early 70s "baby blue" automatic Omega Seamaster 166.088 120m diving watch I recently acquired. Secondly, I take a look at not just one, but two Seiko 6139 Pogues. These hugely iconic Japanese chronographs were not only the first Seiko automatic chronographs but the first automatics to make it into space. Last but by no means least is a stunningly elegant and classy Stowa Bauhaus inspired manual wind piece from the 1940s.

    The Best Military Tactical Beater Watch Under $100 - Casio G-Shock DW5600MS-1 Review & Comparison
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 21, 2017
    When you absolutely positively got to kill every other watch under $100 in the room, accept no substitute! It's been over 2 years since I purchased my last g-shock that I use daily as my work-out and primary beater watch. Today I replace my trusty Mudman "Military" G9000MS-1 and compare it to my latest acquisition. Introducing the DW5600MS-1, one of the best military inspired and tactical watches under $100. But this is no ordinary tactical G-Shock, I have also modded it and added various extras to make it even more comfortable, robust and generally cooler looking!

    To buy your own parts and accessories to customise your G-shock, I recommend Jay & Kays on eBay:

    Top 10 Essential Must See Movies For Iconic Watch Lovers - Rolex, Omega & Seiko
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 23, 2017
    Today's video is one of the most highly requested for me to make and for good reason too. The relationship between watches and movies is always fun but also it has the power to make watches become iconic, super desirable and uber cool by immortalising them forever in celluloid. In this video I share my top 10 favourite movies specifically for watch fans and lovers of quality cinema. I discuss what I like about each film and the watches they feature. From the super macho Seiko H558 (aka the "Arnold") to the classic dapper British gangster's gold Rolex Day-Date on Micheal Caine's wrist in Get Carter as well as many many more. What's your favourite top 10 movies with great watches? Please share in the comments.

    The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Quartz (2517.50.00): The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Mar 26, 2017
    Today, we're going to look at a very fancy, very nice timepiece, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Quartz Ref: 2517.50.00. Although it's not the highest end of Quartz movements, the term "fashion watch" echoes harshly, and the price is definitely up there with that in mind, it's a spectacularly beautiful and functional timepiece, with great accuracy and polish. It is also, sadly, one of the last models where Omega gave a damn about Quartz, so you'll have to pick it up used.

    So, if you want a great, dressy, functional timepiece, and you don't mind paying this kind of money for the accuracy and durability of Quartz, this is a great choice, and if you're just a bit more dressy than I am, this is going to be a solid addition to your watch collection, and is gonna be a highly polished Gem.

    Watch Me Destroy A Rolex Day-Date With A Hammer! - 10 Reasons Why You Should Buy An Authentic Watch
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 27, 2017
    ****The watch featured in the wrist watch check was a Timex not a Tissot, sorry for the mistake. I have Tissot on the brain after their stunning latest release at Baselworld. ***

    The watch world is very divided. There are watch snobs of all kinds. From those who have allegiance to just one brand or genre, to those who look down on anything below a certain price range. There are even some who view anything high end as simply a waste of money. Then there are some who only like contemporary 21st century tech and view anything non "smart" as pointless or dated. However, there is one thing that unites all true watch lovers and horology fans of all persuasions, so today I destroy a Rolex Day-date with a hammer to prove my point.

    The Under-Appreciated Classy Side Of Breitling - The Transocean Day & Date Luxury Watch Review
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 29, 2017
    In today's video I review the Breitling Transocean automatic Day & Date (Ref. A45310) as I continue to explore the more under-appreicated side of the brands offerings. When we think of Breitling, we typically think of macho, massive luxury watches. While still on the larger side, the Day-Date is subtle, refined, with elegant vintage inspired style and proves that you don't have to be flashy to be luxurious. The Transocean line from Breitling pays homage to an age when Breitling didn't try so hard to be cool and had a serious amount of class. But what's the catch? Watch to find out.

    To buy a Breitling in the USA, I recommend:

    My Baselworld 2017 Tudor Inspired Purchase - Watch Unboxing, Seiko Saturday Giveaway & Channel News
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Mar 31, 2017
    Today I share my initial impressions on a surprise purchase that was somewhat inspired by the releases of Baselworld 2017. The Tiger from Tudor is a bit of a forgotten chronograph that I had always liked mainly due to its similarities to the early 60s Rolex Daytona watches. With Tudor's impressive new Black Bay chronograph on the way, I felt maybe it was time to check out their earlier chronographs, so I took the plunge on a deal too good to pass up. In this episode I also have another giveaway to celebrate "Seiko Saturdays" and then finally, I discuss some exciting channel news.

    To buy a Breitling in the USA, I recommend:

    Which Rolex Should He Buy? - A Review Of A Watch Collection From Germany - Fortis, Sinn, & More
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 5, 2017
    Today I take a look at a watch collection belonging to a special viewer "Jan" from the wonderful city of Berlin. After making an extremely generous donation to charity, I offer my opinion on what watches I think he should buy next. Jan's long term grail goal is a Zenith El Primero but he also wants to scale down his rather Sporty collection in the meantime. However, he also would like to add something a little more dressy but still in keeping with his sporty collection. I think the answer is a Rolex, but which one? Which Rolex do you think Jan should get next?

    Watch Hunting In NYC - Rolex "Paul Newman" Daytona, Rare Patek Calatrava, JLC Reverso Duo & More!
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 7, 2017
    With spring in the air, it's finally time to get out of the studio and hit the big city. In the first of hopefully a new series of videos, today I attend a very exciting auction preview with my dear friend Giancarlo Roselli, who is an Urban Gentry team member, administrator and the founder of Gentilogio. In this very special episode we are invited by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers and given special access to a whole plethora of amazing horological icons. The star of the show is undoubtedly a beautiful example of the legendary Rolex Daytona Cosmograph (Ref. 6239/6262), made iconic by the one and only Paul Newman of course. Not only do we look at one of the most sought after chronographs but also a pre-moon 1963 Omega Speedmaster (Ref. S105.012-63) accompanied by an after moon 1971 Speedy to boot! (Ref. 145.022) But the awesomeness does not stop there. We then take a look at a very rare Patek Calatrava (Ref. 5090J) made exclusively for the Russian market, a stunning "Officers watch" Calatrava (Ref.5022R), an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (Ref. 25860ST), and finally (my personal favourite) a Jaeger LeCoutre Reverso Duo. With a line up like that, it's no wonder I almost forgot about the Panerai and the Rolex Submariner (Ref.16610) in there too!

    A big thank you to James for being an excellent host and the wonderful team at Leslie Hindman.
