Tim Mosso and Joshua Thanos of 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 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.


John Smith says:

Wow, Tim really hit the preppy douche starter pack look. What the hell are those glasses and who agreed with him that it’s a good look to wear like that, in a studio to boot, amazing.

HachiZenki says:

The ripped jeans watch. Has a nice ring to it.

Christopher Jefferson says:

Tissot also had the Powermatic 80 chronometre grade movt in their watches. I️ have one and my goodness it’s accurate for the cost!

HachiZenki says:

The popularity of dive watches in the luxury space, I blame Jacques Cousteau.

Luke C says:

Great show as always but for me personally the Ariel Adams segments are unnecessary

HachiZenki says:

Well Tim, I”ve seen a 214270 first edition unworn NIB for more than an ‘excellent condition’ box and papers second edition 214270. I think collectors are thinking of stocking up.
