    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...

    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.

    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.

    Long Island Watch



    Published on Apr 20, 2017
    In today's episode of Watch and Learn, we will show you how to remove the caseback from your watch. We cover the 3 major types; individual screws, solid screwdown and the snap/pop back. The reason for opening your watch could be to change a battery, or regulation, or even some other maintenance.

    With a few inexpensive tools, removing the back of a watch is quite simple and hopefully you can save yourself a few dollars when you need to do your next battery change.

    Please visit us at http://www.longislandwatch.com

    The Interstellar Hamilton Khaki Pilot Day Date - The Best Automatic Aviation Watch Under $600?
    The Urban Gentry



    Published on Apr 25, 2017
    Hamilton have many iconic watches under their belt and an impressive history of amazing aviation watches at affordable price too. Trust me, I should know, I have owned many of them! Today we take a look at one of their more recent icons made famous by the outstanding 2014 Christopher Nolan movie Interstellar. The Khaki Pilot Day Date is an automatic watch (Ref. H64615135) worn by "Cooper" (played by Matthew McConaughey) It is one of two watches that featured in the movie, the second being the ultra cool "Murph" watch which I also discuss. With a cool design, excellent quality and a bit of hollywood fame behind it, this is quite possibly one of the best automatic aviation watches under the $1000 to $600 price range.

    What are Solar and Kinetic Watches? Watch and Learn #23
    Long Island Watch



    Published on Apr 27, 2017
    In today's video of Watch and Learn, we will discuss Solar and Kinetic watches. What makes these watches tick? How are they different from conventional battery watches, and what are their advantages.

    You will find a Solar or Kinetic watch is quite simpler than you imagine, and they can provide months of trouble free use without requiring any charging source. And, because they still operate on quartz crystals, they are quite accurate!

    Come check out the real "grab and go" technology.

    For solar watches shown here, please visit us at:

    The Best Value-for-Money Composite Watches on the Market
    Armand The Watch Guy



    Published on May 3, 2017
    Following much interest by email, I have decided to compile a set of what I believe to be the best of the composite watches, that is to say carbon or ceramic cased timepieces. With the ever expanding market for such new materials, it is certainly worth considering the advantages of these new creations.

    The Urban Gentry



    Published on May 6, 2017
    Today I review the aptly named Legend Diver from Longines. This watch packs a hell of a punch, and combines a cool history, elegant vintage styling, solid quality and a modest price tag, so it's no surprise that it's a cult classic. In this video I take a look at the no date version which is the rarer and more faithful of the modern reissues. Ref. L36744500
