Calibre SC-4M1-04-079 Mauler Orange Chronograph


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Calibre WatchesCalibre is a company that specializes in sport watches for activities including sailing and diving. When you concentrate on one area you’re bound to become an expert and from Calibre’s offerings, it’s obvious they’ve perfected the art. A chronograph sports watch is one of the most adored in the category and the Calibre SC-4M1-04-079 Mauler is a great example of one with style and function.

Buy Calibre SC-4M1-04-079 Mauler WatchThere’s a reason the chronograph is particularly associated with sport. First developed for scientific study, it was later popularized when Nicolas-Mathieu Rieussec built one so King Louis XVIII, a horseracing aficionado, could time his ponies. Built for timing intervals, it later became required equipment for racecar drivers burning rubber around the track in the chase for the checkered flag.

The Calibre SC-4M1-04-079 Mauler immediately catches the eye with its striking orange dial. Not only is the color orange often associated with speed, it’s right in line with the technicolor hues that rocked the runways this summer, including, blue, green, and, of course, orange. Illuminated hands and Arabic and baton numerals give this watch great visibility when lighting conditions are less than ideal. Right in line with the sport theme, the Calibre SC-4M1-04-079 Mauler includes a tachymeter with black numerals around the flange for measuring distances and speed.

But the Calibre Mauler SC-4M1-04-079 is a chronograph, so that’s the highlight of the dial with the subdials circled in black to bring the focus here. This chronograph comes in a tri-compax layout and traditionally these dials are used for timing seconds, minutes and hours. And, the dials at 9 o’clock (30 minutes) and 3 o’clock (60 seconds) do. However, the Calibre Mauler SC-4M1-04-079 gives the extra complication of day of the week at 6 o’clock along with a date aperture at 4 o’clock.

Viceroy 47821-97 Fernando Alonso 3-Hand Date Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Engineered for Success

Viceroy WatchesAs a child, Fernando Alonso was a driving prodigy. At the tender age of three, his father recognized his son’s passion for racing and by the time he was seven years old, Alonso was dominating the local junior kart leagues. By age 12 Alonso had the support of IAME, a leading kart engine producer. In 1994 he won the Junior Spanish Championship and in 1996 he became the World Junior Karting champion. Alonso graduated to F1 in 2001 and in 2005 he became the youngest person to win the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship at age 24.

Alonso’s achievements are a result of his passion and commitment to his craft. The Fernando Alonso watch collection by Viceroy contains watches designed to embody these traits of Alonso’s life to date – inspired, youthful and successful – and one example is the model with reference number 47821-97, a watch that exudes the triumphant spirit associated with Alonso.

Like other watches in the current collection, the design is fresh and energetic, with a sizeable 46 mm case made of stainless steel. This version is coated with rose gold IP and, unlike the many chronographs in the collection, is three-handed; the simplicity and color give it a look that is poised and distinguished. In keeping with the current collection, the bezel is made of aluminum and the caseback is solid stainless steel. Mineral crystal protects the watch from the front and contributes to 164 feet of water resistance, which helps protect the dependable quartz movement inside.

The combination of rose gold and black on a sport watch of this size is exceptionally masculine, and aside from some choice white accents on the dial, the smart color scheme is maintained from top to bottom. On the dial, a solid black central base is surrounded by embossed concentric rings, over which rose gold IP hour markers are applied. The hands are also rose gold IP along with the date window frame and the Fernando Alonso checkered flag logo.

The numbers on the date wheel, as well as the minute markers at each hour index are printed in white and contrast well; the white also unites the snowy appearance of the luminous coating on the hour and minute hands. A fitted black silicone strap continues the color scheme with its bronze-tinted stitching that matches well with rose gold. The steel prong buckle is also coated with rose gold IP.

A circular band motif, represented on the dial by the aforementioned concentric rings, also extends to other parts of the watch. A profile view of the bezel reveals a three-tiered ring; the same look continues on the crown as well as the strap, which has embossed rings through its center.

Viceroy 47823-57 Fernando Alonso Chronograph


by Adrian Herscovici  

Built for Champions

Viceroy WatchesFans of two-time Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso are familiar with the driver’s ability on international Grand Prix circuits. The charismatic Alonso is also popular off-track, which made his appointment as ambassador for Spanish brand Viceroy in 2008 a natural alliance – an affable young champion for a rising, progressive brand.

Alonso’s position atop the racing stratosphere remains the inspiration for Viceroy’s Fernando Alonso watch collection, the latest of which capture the essence of sport-casual by using streamlined combinations of materials and designs to reflect the impassioned, cutting-edge nature of racing sport.

The chronograph model with reference number 47823-57 features a large polished 46 mm stainless steel case and a lightweight aluminum bezel with a gray-black hue. Novel looking chronograph pushers flank the crown; the black piston-head embellishment on each pusher further amplifies the motor-centricity of the watch and brings the pistons to life, and the look extends to the crown, too. Steel crown guards jut out to ensure no accidental pressure is applied to the crown when operating the pushers.

In a racing sport of any sort, the chronograph function is essential, allowing operators to track intervals and elapsed time. Readability is therefore important. Partially skeletonized luminous sword hands and white indexes provide excellent contrast overtop the dial’s deep-black surface. The three sub-dials appear in a classic 3-6-9 layout. The only word on the dial is the Viceroy name, which appears above the FA checkered flag logo and the font chosen for the numbers around the chapter ring adds to the watch’s automotive disposition. A mineral crystal encases it all.

Inside, a reliable quartz movement ticks away, safeguarded by a stainless steel caseback that contributes to the watch’s 164 feet of water resistance. In keeping with the sport-oriented personality of the watch, a black silicone strap featuring a prong buckle inscribed with a V is mounted to the lugs. The strap’s white stitching adds an element of refined detail and makes the watch even more versatile from a fashion point of view.

Haurex 6N506UTM Men’s Turbina II Chronograph


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Haurex WatchesJust a few years ago watch diameters increased to suit modern tastes and some brands even experimented and expanded upon the trend with truly massive watches. Italian watch company Haurex was one of them. The three-handed Turbina measured in at a whopping 52 mm, and while the watch looked cool, only certain men could accommodate the size.

Haurex 6N506UTM Men's Turbina II WatchIn the same family, the Turbina II keeps the masculine good looks of the Turbina and makes some aesthetic and functional changes. First off, the Turbina II now comes down to a more reasonable 48 mm. The watch is still large and maintains that characteristic and imposing presence, but now allows for wider audiences of men who liked the Turbina but couldn’t manage the extra 4 mm.

In a black IP coated stainless steel case, the Turbina II keeps the striking size of the Arabic numerals, which are beige, as well as the protective crown, except the crown mechanism has been moved from the left side of the case to the right, along with the chronograph pushers. Yes, the Turbina II now has a chronograph complication, adding a sporty element.

The black matte dial layout is clean and simple to read and a great backdrop for the beige numerals and hands. The chronograph minute indicator is at 12 o’clock and the hour at 6 o’ clock, while the running seconds is traditionally placed concentrically around the beige hands. There is also a date function at 3 o’clock.

Haurex 6N506UTM Men’s Turbina II Chronograph Black Dial Watch

Haurex 6N506UTM Men's Turbina II WatchKey features:

  • Precise quartz movement
  • Oversized black IP coated stainless steel case, diameter 48 mm, thickness 13.5 mm
  • Black dial with beige hands and indexes, screw down crown
  • Chronograph and date functions, second and minute counters
  • Stationary stainless steel bezel
  • Mineral crystal
  • Black silicone band, 22 mm width, buckle clasp
  • Water resistant to 330 feet
  • 2-year manufacturer’s warranty

Equipped with a precise quartz movement, the Turbina II wraps around the wrist with a comfortable silicon strap that secures with a buckle, perfect for summer and wet situations. The Turbina II is not only functional on land but also by sea. The screw-down crown keeps it water resistant to 330 feet, making it a very versatile watch.

For a bold and well-designed sport watch that possesses distinct style, the Haurex 6N506UTM Turbina II Chronograph is a worthy and desirable watch that does its predecessor proud.

by John Sealander  

When a world champion F1 racing driver like Fernando Alonso checks the time, he needs something very special.

Viceroy WatchesWhen two-time F1 racing world champion Fernando Alonso became a brand ambassador for Spanish watchmaker Viceroy, the company decided to create an entire collection based around the needs and sensibilities of top racing drivers. The resulting race-oriented Fernando Alonso Collection is a celebration of sport and competition, featuring sleek, sporty timepieces that are packed with functional features any good driver would appreciate.

Buy Viceroy Men's 47617-55 Black IP Chronograph Rubber WatchThe showpiece of this impressive collection is the stealthy looking Special Edition Chronograph.

With two well-placed 6-minute and 24-hour totalizers, along with a third free running small seconds display, this watch is well-equipped to time events of any duration.

A signature element seen in all Fernando Alonso watches are the four distinctive hex nuts that attach the bezel to the stealthy IP black case. These screws, which have the appearance of automotive lug-nuts, add a unique racing flair to this versatile chronograph. The comfortable, soft black rubber strap has been completely integrated with the protruding tapered lugs for a seamless, unified appearance. The combination of a dial that has the appearance of a racing dashboard instrument and a grooved, rubber strap that evokes images of F1 racing tires is totally compelling.
