    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 10, 2017
    In this video I review a very classy luxury dress watch from MontBlanc. The Heritage Chronometre Ultra Slim (Ref.112515) is everything a quintessential dress watch should be and from a brand synonymous with quality, style and luxury. Not only do I review a watch but I share a triple unboxing, including the highly requested Longines Legend Automatic Diver, an iconic Hamilton aviation watch and my latest vintage pick up from Omega.

    Before You Buy A Daniel Wellington, MVMT Or Michael Kors Watch - 6 Alternatives From $50 to $500
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 12, 2017
    One of the most frequently asked questions I get is what I think about the extremely successful "fashion watch" brands like MVMT, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, Daniel Wellington, Viscero, Armani etc. Well, the answers is a little complicated because there are (of course) some things I dislike about them, but there also I feel some positive things that traditional watch brands can learn from these brands too. In this video I also share my opinion on 6 brands that offer much cooler, stylish, better made and truly iconic watches costing from as less a $50 to $500.

    Tudor Tiger Prince Chronograph Watch Review - The Best Rolex Paul Newman Daytona Luxury Alternative
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 14, 2017
    In todays video I review my latest acquisition and discuss a brief history of Tudor's iconic chronographs. The Tudor Tiger Prince Date Automatic (ref. 79280) was made to honour Tudor's sponsorship of the legendary golfer Tiger Woods. However the roots of the watch are firmly in motor racing, much like it's more famous cousin from Rolex. Despite it's similarities to the Paul Newman Daytona, (especially the ref. 6239/6262) it is full of it's own combination of unique features, character and class. This makes it undoubtedly the best affordable alternative to the massively sort after and extremely expensive iconic Daytona.

    Start Your Own Legacy - The Signet Ring Guide, Meaning, Favourite Recommended Styles & Brief History
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Dec 28, 2015
    In today's video I revisit a subject I covered in the very early days of the channel a year ago. As I recently had a number of my signet rings resized, I thought why not share them, discuss their meaning, significance and give a brief history about them on the channel.
    A signet ring for me, is a very important refinement that I feel is the second most important accessory a gentleman should own, after a wristwatch of course! Today I show the four types of signet rings I own and demonstrate how you can find the best choice for yourself.
    The great thing is, there is a style for everyone! So why not have one made to enjoy , express your personality, remember a heritage or start a new one to be remembered by for future generations!

    To have your own monogramed signet ring made in the traditional Oxford style I highly recommend the following...

    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Feb 13, 2016
    After much delay I finally get to do an episode of WWT (Wrist Watch Talk) that I promised to so many. One of the most frequent questions I get asked is buying watches on the whats called the "grey market" and on Amazon. But what is it? What does it mean? What are the hidden dangers? The benefits and buying sweet spot? Whats the difference between buying via an authorised dealer and a grey market dealer? Today I answer all these questions and share my own personal horror stories and successes of buying via the grey market, authorised dealers and amazon.

    Mourning a loss, and foreshadowing a crazy new beginning...

    Published on Apr 16, 2017
    Today, we gather to mourn a loss for the channel. Rather than dwelling on tragedy, though, today, we will look to the future, towards something a bit crazy that I'll be blaming on you all.

    The Casio AE1200-WH 'Casio Royale' Wristwatch: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Apr 17, 2017
    Today, we're going to look at a great budget wrist watch, with an unconventional "Bond Watch" connection, the Casio AE1200-WHD-1A. It's got lots of features, neat design, a nice size, and a great "World Time" function, all for a solid price. But it's also a plastic crystal and case, and it's not exactly in line with everybody's fashion sense.

    So, although it's not quite passion-inspiring enough for Gem, it's a really great watch for the price, and I think if you like the design, it'll be easy to Bond with.

    Here's a link to buy this watch (and support the channel): http://amzn.to/2p11DlQ

    War Room Desk Tour - A Behind The Scenes Look At My Work Space - Inside The Urban Gentry
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 17, 2017
    Every gentleman should have a part of the home to call their own. Many have "man caves", games rooms or even an automotive workshop perhaps. Whatever form and function this space takes, what is important it should be a fun place where you can go to focus on the things you love. For the last two years my space has affectionately become known as "the war room". It is where I work, study, film vlogs and get creative. To ensure inspiration is sparked, I have filled it with many items I collect and hold dear to my heart. In this episode I talk about my many collections, from movies to watches and unveil a newest addition to my King & Country die cast collection.
