by John Sealander  

The Only Chance You Might Ever Have
to Wear a Fine Painting on Your Wrist

Gio Monaco WatchesGio Monaco Mens 767-A2 Graffiti Collection Automatic Pop-Art Geographic Scenes Blue Dial WatchGuiseppe Ascione was a talented designer. His brother Michele was a skilled engineer. When they combined their talents with their passion for watches, a brand was born. It was no accident that their Gio Monaco timepieces were named for Guido Monaco, the inventor of musical notes and patron saint of their hometown of Arezzo, Italy. To the Ascione brothers, there has always been a connection between the harmony of music and the measurement of time.

The spectacular Gio Monaco Graffiti Automatic is a superb example of this unique fusion of fine art and Swiss technology. This amazing timepiece is unlike anything you have ever seen before. The entire dial is a work of art. Depicting colorfully iconic geographic scenes from around the world, this unique dial puts time in a whole new perspective.

A black PVD coated stainless steel bezel with distinctive inset markers frames the one-of-a-kind pop art dial. With a massive 44mm stainless steel case, a screw down protected crown and a bright blue genuine alligator leather strap, this artistic marvel is unmistakable.

The Graffiti Automatic features a premium Swiss made ETA 7753 movement and is water resistant to 165 feet. The watch features a three-hand display with skeletonized hour and minute hands and is equipped with a scratch resistant antireflective sapphire crystal.

If you share Guiseppe and Michele’s passion for art and engineering, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to wear a precision work of art on your own wrist. To reserve your Gio Monaco Graffiti Automatic, contact your nearest authorized Gio Monaco dealer today.

Fortis Mens 595.22.41 L.01 Pilot Professional Day Date Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Cockpit Fundamentals

Fortis WatchesFortis Mens 595.22.41 L.01 Pilot Professional Day Date WatchThe earliest pilot watches were basic time-tellers with a decidedly crucial purpose: to provide pilots with accurate timekeepers that had clear and simple readouts by which they could tell time quickly and easily. It’s this necessity of function that separated pilot watches from other, more complicated timepieces.

The Fortis Pilot Professional is an exceptional rendering of this highly functional tool-watch. The 40 mm, brushed stainless steel case has a narrow bezel and large sapphire crystal that provide a wide-open reading area. The crown is knurled and oversized to make it easy to grab, even with gloves on, and the padded black leather strap with prong buckle is comfortable and close-fitting whether it is worn over or under clothing.

The dial is matte black with contrasting white Arabic numerals and indices, each of which is coated in Super-LumiNova, a phosphorescent-pigment paint that glows in the dark; the hands are also generously coated, ensuring good legibility, day or night. The ubiquitous arrowhead index that appears at “12” typifies the aviator genre; in its day, the index’s primary significance was to provide upward orientation of the dial in low light.

In terms of precision, the Pilot Professional houses a 25-jewel ETA 2836-2 automatic movement, which beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and utilizes an Incabloc shock absorber to protect the balance. Another important characteristic of this movement is the “hack” or “stop-second” setting mechanism: when the crown is pulled out the seconds hand stops, allowing the wearer to set the time more precisely. Before the advent of computer-aided navigation, the hack function was a noteworthy addition to the pilot watch, since even the smallest timing oversight could lead to a critical navigational error.

For a touch of contemporary functionality, the Fortis Pilot Professional is water resistant to 650 feet, thanks in part to its screw-down steel caseback and crown. The watch’s lone complication is a day-and-date indicator featuring a bilingual day wheel in German and English, which is a nod to the significant influence that Germans had on pilot-watch development in the mid-20th century.

Louis Erard Mens 54209AS11.BDC25 1931 Silver Dial Power Reserve Regulator Watch

by Boris Pjanic  

Louis Erard WatchesLouis Erard Mens 54209AS11.BDC25 1931 Silver Dial Power Reserve Regulator WatchLouis Erard is a Swiss watchmaker who is focusing on manufacturing mechanical watches with a classic and elegant appearance. Take a look at the Louis Erard regulator presented here, which is a manual wind timepiece with an ETA Peseux movement 7001 RE9 with Louis Erard complications, including a regulator hand showing the minutes, a power reserve at 9 o’clock, and a small second at 6 o’clock, while the hour is shown in the gauge at 12 o’clock. Accordingly, the watch depicted here shows 10 minutes after 10 o’clock and about 40 seconds.

This timepiece belongs to the 1931 collection which focuses on mechanical timepieces for watch aficionados with small complications such as a power reserve or a regulator. This model features a contemporary 42mm size, complemented by a beautiful silver dial which looks very clean despite having several complications. As a result, it is easy to read and understand, which is not always the case when you look at complicated watches.

The beautifully brushed steel case possesses a see-through back which offers you an open view on the highly finished hand-wound movement. Honestly, such a beautiful movement would be a reason to wear the watch in reverse showing only the movement, as it is really exciting to watch the gears and balance spring do their work to keep this living object alive.

Montres De Luxe Mens TH7004 Thunderbolt Black Dial Chronograph


by Boris Pjanic  

Montres De Luxe WatchesMontres De Luxe Mens TH7004 Thunderbolt Black Dial Chronograph WatchMontres De Luxe is a young Italian watch brand deeply inspired by design created in the beautiful country of Italy which reflects in a playfulness and creative elegance that you only find in Italy. The Montres De Luxe TH7004 Black Dial Chronograph is part of the Thunderbolt collection which is based on the P47, an American WW2 fighter plane which assures an interesting combination of military heritage and Italian sense of fashion.

This chronograph features an automatic ETA 7750 movement which is the workhorse of Swiss made watch movements, as it is very reliable and durable. The stainless steel case is complemented by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which in combination with the Arabic numerals and round indices delivers excellent readability while at he same time displaying the day and date at 3 o’clock.

The case of this chronograph measures a popular 43 mm. Most timepieces today are over 40 mm in size, and quite a few even over 45mm. I even see a lot of women sporting such large timepieces on their wrists. I remember about 10 years ago, when I saw a young lady wearing a Submariner which is 40 mm in size, and back then I thought “oh my gosh, how can she wear such a big watch!?” Well, now, she could even wear a 44mm watch and would just fit the actual fashion trend of “big is beautiful“ when it comes to watches.

This chronograph comes with a black PVD bezel while there are several other options as well, including plain steel bezel, and while this case is made of hand polished steel, you can also chose from a PVD blackened case. This chronograph may be used for diving, as it features a screw back case and is waterproof to 330 feet.
