The Most Influential & Iconic German Watch Design - The Junghans Max Bill Automatic Watch Review

When we think of iconic German watches, we think of A.Lange & Sohne, Sinn, Nomos or Glashutte Original among many others. But before all of them there was Junghans and the watch they are most famous for is also the most imitated but least appreciated watch of all German watches. We are of course talking about the Max Bill collection designed by the legendary Artist himself back in the early 60s. Today I review the unique and highly influential watch, a brief history of the Swiss designer and discuss why my favourite of the Max Bill collection is this automatic no-date version with the anthracite dial (ref. 027/3401.00). Infinitely stylish, timeless in elegance, a watch truly for the cultured and sophisticated. Nobody can deny the horological and design importance of the Max Bill watches from Junghans, PURE CLASS!

Today's video is a change from the norm as we take a trip to the dark side. As the good Gentry know, I prefer to always look at the positive sides of things. However, today I discuss 5 watches I profoundly dislike from a wide range of brands to see if there is anything I can learn from these timepieces. I discuss the Openworked Royal Oak from Audamars Piguet and how one of my favorite iconic super luxury sports watches has been ruined by after market customization. I look at the 40th anniversary Patek Philippe Nautilus and why it was a diaspointment for such an important commemorative occasion. I go on to discuss what makes the MVMT chronograph pointless, as well as the most over the top Rolex Daytona ever made and a vanity project gone wrong for Kanye West.

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.

My Ultimate Dream Rolex Trinity Luxury Watch Collection - A Response To Federico Talks Watches

***Apologies for the late video. Due to technical problems at youtube last night, this video was delayed. Thank you for being patient. On many evenings I enjoy discussions with the Rt. Hon Federico about watches. One subject that came up recently was what if we had modern Rolex ONLY watch collections? It's not something I could ever do personally but they do exist and not without good reason. Rolex has a wonderfully varied range and an unmatched reliability, along with iconic desirability that makes many of their watches investment worthy too.

Affordable Alternatives PART 2 - Rolex Submariner, Omega Speedmaster & Breitling Navitimer Watches
 
12:43
Today I follow up on a recent massively successful video where I looked at alternatives to 3 of the most iconic watches ever made. The conditions are simple. They must NOT be homage watches and have their own style from brands I respect to deliver a quality alternative. This time however, I look at choices suggested by my viewers in the comments of the previous video. For alternatives to the Rolex Submariner, in this video I suggest the Christopher Ward Trident C60 and Glycine Combat Sub. For the Omega Speedmaster, the Tissot V8 and the Longines Heritage 1954, then finally, for the Breitling Navitimer, I suggest the Sinn 903 and the Citizen Promaster Sky range.

The Hamilton Khaki King Review - One Of The Best Swiss Automatic & Iconic Field Watches Under $500
 
20:05
***PLEASE NOTE: Hamilton have since updated the movement in this watch. The watch featured now has an upgraded H40 with an extended power reserve and slower rate of operation. Thank you. Today I review an old favourite and a watch I know very well. The Hamilton Khaki King (H64455523) is exactly as the name suggests. It is the more regal and slightly more elegant version of the legendary classic Hamilton Khaki military field watch. I am a former owner of the black dial version (H64455533) but somewhat over looked is the version I am reviewing today. Unlike its manual wind iconic forbearers, this version has a stunningly attractive dial, the added day and date complication, powered by a rock solid ETA, sapphire glass, and even a display back. With its more contemporary larger size and styling still very much still based on well over a half a century of tradition, this affordable classic packs one hell of a punch for well under $500. The American born and now Swiss made Hamilton Khaki watches have served the soldiers from the battlefields of World War 2, the Korean War, Vietnam War, and many more, so with that all being said, is it still one of the best automatics you can buy new for under $500?

10 Reasons EVERYONE Should Own A Watch - Why It's Better Than A Cell Phone To Tell Time & Collect

In today's video I respond to a comment left on a recent video. A viewer made an excellent point "if cell phones have such accurate time, then what is the point of owning or buying a watch?" So in this video I share my 10 reasons why everyone should consider getting a watch. I directly compare each reason with the use of cell phones and explain why I am extremely optimistic about the future of watches and the hobby of collecting them . My ten reasons are as follows: 1. The link to the history of Horology and civilisation. 2. The importance of measuring time and how it unites us all. 3. The refinement in understanding and learning about horology. 4. The culture, hobby and community of collecting watches. 5. The tradition of owning, inheriting and passing down a timepiece. 6. The dependable practicality and functionality of a trusted technology. 7. The investment potential of buying the right watches. 8. The enhancement of ones personal style and complimenting and outfit. 9. A great way to start a conversation and meet people. 10.

Pure Ghastly! - Your 101 Watch Pet Peeves - From Patek, Seiko, Rolex, & Everything In Between
 
27:20
People who collect watches or are into horology tend to be very detail oriented, to the point of being overly fussy. This can cause divisiveness within the watch community, specifically when it comes to what we like to buy and collect. There are of course many things that unite us, such as our mutual disdain for fashion, replica or non-geniune watches. However, there are also many things that divide us, like homage watches, how we choose to wear our timepieces, and particular tastes, costs, or styles of watches. At the end of the day, what is important is that we all love horology. Even when looking at the things that drive us nuts about watches, we can all learn something, especially if you are considering buying a new watch. Regardless of whether you buy super luxury Pateks, rare vintage Rolex Submariners, or are a complete Seiko nut, you might just have to watch this first before buying your next watch.

Every Collection Needs A Beater! The Best Watches Under $50 - Casio Duro & G-Shock DW-5600E Review
 
19:59
As far back as I remember I always had a "beater" watch in my collection. Many watches may come and gone but it is a task that if I only had a very few pieces, I will always designate at least one in the collection for that role. Even my grandfather had a beater pocket watch for hunting and pottering about in the garden. His was a more robust version of his smarter, solid gold far more expensive main timepiece. So this is nothing new and today I take a look at two highly regarded watches from Casio that offer so much for such a small price tag. The first is the diver styled and quartz powered "Duro" MDV-106 with its handsome classic analog look. The second is the digital G-Shock DW5600E, a modern upgraded descendent of the very first G-Shock from 1983, a true icon of horology and certified by NASA for space missions.

Top 7 Toughest Watches For The End Of The World Or Zombie Apocalypse - The Best Options $50 To $10K In today's video I round up the 7 toughest watches that would serve you best in an end-of-civilisation scenario. No matter the budget or end of days event (alien invasion, rampaging Godzilla, giant asteroid, nuclear war, or zombie apocalypse), these choices will have the Gentry keeping time in any situation! We start with a look at my favourite mil-spec watch, the TSAR & GSAR from the legendary Canadian brand Marathon. Next I discuss the useful practicality of the Casio Protrek PRW-3000 series that could save your life. I then share my personal choice, none other than the trusty ceramic Submariner by Rolex. I follow up with the Sinn UX, perhaps one of the toughest watches ever made and the pinnacle of German ingenuity. The German theme continues with the sun powered Nomos Sonnenuhr, followed by the ever relied upon and Japanese invented G-shock. Tough as nails as these timepieces all are, there can only be one winner and that title goes to the Swiss with the Victorinox INOX, the only watch in the world that can survive being run over by a 64 ton tank and much, much more!
