The Codebreaker has been made in conjunction with the Bletchley Park Trust. Proceeds from the watch will be donated to the trust to assist with its on going restoration.
Bell & Ross has seen a meteoric rise due to their commitment to creating fine watches that relate to either an essential piece of aviation apparatus, part of a diver's kit, or a watch that is representative of a moment in history.
Nomos recently released the Lambda line of watches which happen to be available in either white or rose gold. As you'd expect, the aesthetics of this watch are simple and classic. With the exception of the over sized power reserve indication, everything about this watch is pleasingly understated. The case measures in at a width of 42 mm and a very slim 8.9 mm tall. The dial is white silver plated and viewed through a sapphire crystal. The movement is coined the DUW-1001 and is manual-wind with twin barrels giving it juice for an extended 84 hours. Six of the twenty-nine jewels are placed in gold chatons and secured down with three blue screws each. The balance cock is hand engraved and topped off with a swan neck for making fine adjustments. The combination of the screwed down chatons and hand engraving allows this watch to have a very "throw-back" vibe that reminds me of pocket watches from long ago. The plates are finished off with sunbeam polishing along with angled and polished edges.
This deep blue splashed beauty comes from the Tag Heuer Aquaracer collection. A Swiss made piece with an automatic movement and 43mm stainless steel case. A great amount of detail has gone into the construction of the dial all the way through to the attached rubber strap.
The designers of Arnold & Son’s Instrument Collection took their inspiration from the distinctive instrument-like chronometers produced by John Arnold and his son, John Roger Arnold. These delivered the robustness, reliability and down-to-the-second precision needed by marine navigators to determine longitude. The TB Victory is a scintillating combination of maritime precision with aesthetic perfection and celebrates a battleship that owed its long active life, at least in part, to the accuracy of those chronometers.
