Tim Mosso and Joshua Thanos of thewatchbox.com bring the popular Watchbox Studios news program, “This Week in Watches,” to YouTube’s number one watch enthusiast channel, Ablogtowatch. Tim and Josh discuss the news of the week from the world of luxury watches. This week, we consider the merits of choosing a tantalum FP Journe Chronometre Bleu over a surprising challenger, the white gold Omega DeVille Tresor with blue enamel dial. We discuss new luxury watch releases including the IWC Aquatimer Automatic Collector’s Forum #4, the new Omega Speedmaster 38mm Chronograph Black, the Moritz Grossman Atum Extreme Dubai, and a provocative RJ Romain Jerome Skylab Batman limited edition manual wind timepiece. Luxury watch industry news is a topic of discussion as we analyze the Swiss watch export data for October 2017 and consider the reasoning behind Germany’s ban on smart watches for children under 13. Ariel Adams of Ablogtowatch.com joins us for a special segment in which he answers a viewer’s question about why dive watches have come to dominate among all classes of luxury watch. Ariel explains the origins of the dive watch class and why modern watch collectors have learned to love dive watches to an extent that surpasses any other type of mechanical or quartz watch.
