________________________________________

DESCRIPTION ::

Ben, an incredibly thoughtful collector and watch geek, reached out to Christian for his opinion on a potential next acquisition. In this video, Christian dives into the history and value of the two watches currently in Ben's collection - the Rolex Sea-Dweller 116600 and the Cartier Ceinture Automatique - and offers his opinion of brands that could be of interest to Ben.

Ben called the Rolex Sea-Dweller the "modern milsub," meaning the watch most true to the integrity displayed by the original Rolex Military Submariner's tool function, practical and humble size-design combination. The Sea-Dweller's wearability, sturdiness, historical significance, and Rolex name all add to its function in Ben's very limited collection.

On the other side of the spectrum, is the Cartier, a dress piece with special sentimentality for Ben. His grandfather owned a Cartier Ceinture Automatique and when the watch was given to Ben's uncle, he went out and purchased his very own. This watch serves an equally valuable but completely separate purpose in Ben's collection. Its white gold case, quirky design, and Cartier "Paris" label all contribute to the stylish dress and vital design heritage this watch exudes.

His next piece? Well, we think it should be something equally as thoughtful in design and potentially ultra-thin. Enjoy!

A Complete History of James Bond Wristwatches
Armand The Watch Guy


Published on Jul 16, 2017
In this video, I would like to produce a video covering every James Bond wristwatch from Dr. No to Spectre as there is currently no video on YouTube which serves this purpose. I have tried to include every film despite speculation as to wristwatches worn in some of Sean Connery's later movies.

In this video overview, I show seven dive watches released in 2017 that caught my eye and maybe by wallet! I start with an affordable micro-brand all the way up to the grand daddy of dive watches with some fun in between. Enjoy!

The Way Of The Samurai - The Best Seiko Automatic Dive Watch Under $400? - SRPB53 Prospex Review
The Urban Gentry


Published on Jul 18, 2017
****PLEASE NOT: The lug width is 22mm not 21mm, for some reason the calibers decided give a different reading. Back to the metal ones with tape on the ends I guess?!

When it comes to the entry level serious professional dive watches, nobody does it better than Seiko. With over half a century of experience and a list of legendary divers as deep as the ocean itself, today we take a look at another classic in the making. Named after it's tough warrior looks, the re-released Samurai packs a hell of a punch for the current (July 2017) sub $400 price point. It has the presence of a Panerai Luminor, the dial like an AP Royal Oak, classic design cues from the Seiko Monster and maybe even a little bit of IWC Ingenieur in there too. All the while, powered by an in-house robust contemporary movement similar to that pf the massively successful Seiko PADI Turtle. Is there any excuse not to buy it? Well, perhaps a just few, so lets find out and dive into the review.

Alternative Luxury Watches Under £5000
Armand The Watch Guy


Published on Jul 26, 2017
In this video, I would like to discuss various interesting and different options in the sub-£5000 price point as more and more options are available which, in my opinion, offer more than the better known offerings. These watches come in the form of everything from an interesting dive watch from Longines to beautiful dress watches from Vulcain and Jaeger LeCoultre.

I Damaged My Rolex & Why It's A Good Thing - The Best Half Price ABC Watch - Casio ProTrek Unboxing
The Urban Gentry


Published on Jul 27, 2017
Today I talk about how a recent accident that caused my denting my Rolex Explorer (Ref. 114270 36mm) has made me realise that my attitude and how I wear my watches has changed greatly from my early days of watch collecting. From being very careful and overly fussy about damaging my watches, now I am able to enjoy them to a far more satisfying level. What has changed this perception and level of enjoyment? I also share an unboxing of a recent impulse buy, the Casio Pro Trek PRW3100Y-1B. With the advent of the newer Casio Pro Trek watches becoming "Smart Watches" in 2017, it has had the knock on effect that prices of their excellent 2016 previous generation of ABC watches. With 50% price reductions on both eBay and Amazon, it has never been a better time to buy one of the best ABC watches on the market today.

If You Only Want To Own 1 Luxury Watch - 5 Reason Why A Rolex DateJust Is The Best Option At $2000+
The Urban Gentry


Published on Aug 1, 2017
I get asked every day my recommendation for a luxury watch for those not looking to collect but to have one single "do it all" luxury piece. A few months ago I shared my thoughts on why the Omega Seamaster makes a great first luxury watch. But that was on the assumption it would be the first of many in a collection or part of a journey in collecting. What if you just want one watch or only need to add one luxury piece to an existing collection? The DateJust from Rolex is my top suggestion. In my opinion it has the most to offer and so, today I share my 5 reasons why. From the modernity and rugged dependability of the contemporary 11620 or 116334, to the more affordable vintage charmers like the 16200, 16030 or even quartz versions like the 17013. In terms of history, versatility, value for money, quality, and just the sheer amount of options to choose from, it's hard to beat! I also share which DateJusts I have had the pleasure of owning and a brief history, including a very special guest, sir Winston Churchill himself.

The Steinhart Ocean One Titanium 500 Wristwatch: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
Nick Shabazz


Published on Jul 31, 2017
Today, we'll check out an interesting dive watch from an underappreciated brand, the Steinhart Ocean One Titanium 500 Wristwatch. It's Titanium, it's legible, it's on a nice bracelet, and the lume is to die for. But the face is a bit flat, Steinhart doesn't get much love in the watch world, and the lugs are ridiculously long. So, it's a very, very good watch, and a near-gem, but doesn't quite hit the mark.

Also, sorry, I forgot to change after work again.

A Sneak Peak Of The New Urban Gentry HQ - Seiko SNZH57K1 Unboxing & First Impressions
The Urban Gentry


Published on Aug 5, 2017
After months of construction and having to put up with the ghastly "interrogation" room, today I can finally reveal the new Urban Gentry HQ. Please bear in mind, it is NOT finished yet and I still have yet to sound proof it. But I am proud to say, it is part of the first in some major changes for the channel over the next few months.

I wish to thank everyone who has supported me thus far and I feel extremely excited at some of the stuff planned coming up. I really could not of done it without the loyalty, exemplary respect, inspirational friendship and goodwill of my beloved fellow Gentry! I am not one to talk much (unless about watches), so I will merely walk the walk and let you see for yourself for the rest of 2017 and beyond. I am sure you are going to absolutely love the next few months. In the meantime, regular content will continue next week. In this video I also share a quick unboxing and initial impressions of the Seiko 5 SNZH57K1 that I have always been dying to get my hands on. The watch has an uncanny resemblance to one of my favourite dive watches of all time, the iconic and massively influencial Blancpain Fifty Fathoms.

Gshock DW5030C-1 30th anniversary
Random Rob


Published on Aug 6, 2017
Casio G shock dw5030 30th anniversary celebration from the 1983 first gshock square that was released. Big thanks to Zachery for selling this perfect watch to me. The heavy duty feel of this model is a true sign of the "team tough" on the dial. The brick wall on the dial also reminds me of the 80's I grew up in.
