This watch brand is from Pennsylvania. The watches are actually built at their factory there, something often said but this company has actually proven it. Their newest watch looks like it belongs back in the 1940's. The dial has printing that, unlike most watches now, does not stop at the subdial but continues through. Something often seen on WWII era watches. It will also have a similar size to watches from this time period. A 38.5mm case encloses an automatic Valijoux chronograph movement with a 30-minute subdial register at 12 and a 12-hour subdial at 6. The time is easy to read, even through the dial is so cluttered. The blued hands really stand out against the red and black writing on the dial. The watch will be named the Classic Chronograph Model 455. The classic refers to the time period the watch looks like it is from, chronograph is self-explanatory and model 455 is the name RGM gave to it. No information on pricing has been released yet but as with their other watches it will be high, but you will not be able to buy a six-pack of Rolexes for the same amount. I would estimate the price to be somewhere around $7K-$10K because there are only 100 being made. Pictures of this classic (and classy) watch will be found here. Thanks for reading!
Breitling is a brand known for their pilot watches. That is their heritage, their roots, their identity as a brand. Now they have just released a watch to celebrate 50 years of aviation history. This watch will be known as the Patrouille Suisse 50th Anniversary. The Patrouille Suisse are an aerobatics group who have been performing since 1964. The brand has history with the PS also. They have already released several models and now they will release another. It is a 1000-piece limited edition. The 44mm watch is from their well-known Chronomat collection. It has a special engraved caseback that acknowledges the LE and partnership between the two by showing both xxxx/1000 and the Patrouille Suisse logo. The video below was released by Breitling on their youtube channel and it offers many views of the watch while in action. Pictures of the watch and the full article can be easily found by clicking here. No information has been released on pricing yet but I would guess it would be around $6K. These watches are going to sell like hot cakes.
