Tonight, Tim Mosso and Josh Thanos recap the week in luxury watches. We open with a this-or-that battle between the eternal rivals; Rolex and Omega watches. Tim pits the 2017 Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 50th anniversary Baselworld debut against the 2016 Baselworld novelty Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Co-Axial Master Chronometer. Can the 600M Omega Seamaster fend off the challenge or a revitalized Rolex Sea Dweller? New luxury watches from Mido watch and Ateliers de Monaco are discussed in depth. Mido’s Inspired by Architecture initiative has produced a stunning combination of value, substance, and architecture-driven style. The limited edition Mido Inspired by Architecture draws upon the celebrated style of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of Art in New York City to produced what may be the best sub-$2,000 wristwatch of the year. Ateliers de Monaco, a joint venture or Frederique Constant founder Peter Stas and Pim Koeslag, has released a new 44mm DLC Black Titanium version of its 2016 Ateliers de Monaco Tourbillon Oculus 1297. The resulting wristwatch makes extensive use of fine finish and imaginative measures such as a sapphire crystal tourbillon bridge. It’s price of roughly $69,215 U.S. appears quite reasonable given the complexity of the mechanism and the degree of finish; it stands as yet more evidence that the luxury watch market is adjusting to price even grand complications at levels more representative of manufacturing costs. Tim announced that on November 17 and Black Friday, November 24, our Watches Live program will broadcast live on the YouTube channel of Ariel Adams and Ablogtowatch. This exciting collaboration will see Tim cover the news of the week on Ablogtowatch’s industry-leading 100,000+ subscriber YouTube channel. Josh will fly shotgun while Tim hosts and Ariel Adams makes special appearance. Finally, Tim and Josh end this week by discussing how they would spend the roughly $400,000 Word Series shares that will be distributed to each member of the Major League Baseball 2017 World Champion Houston Astros.

Nice beater man. I typically like my watches in pristine condition, but those battle scars really do add character to it.

Architecture and watches do go well together. Who will take a shot at designing a watch around the work of Gaudi?

can’t believe you didn’t hook up with Hodinkee ,and Ben Clymer as opposed to Ariel Adams and Ablogtowatch, I would have thought you learned your lesson after your original show with Ariel

Konstantinos Roumeliotis says:

This Atmos LE is a museum piece… The guys at JLC make miracles….

thumperjdm says:

The DeMonaco is a nice-looking watch.    But, as a family member of Frederique Constant, I can’t help but see the DeMonaco brand as akin to (long gone) Plymouth building a $100K luxury car to compete with Mercedes and BMW.      At the prices and features of DeMonaco, I’m looking at much more prestigious brands, with a long history and pedigree.
