Win an Oris Artix Audi Sport GMT:


Luxury watch buyers, watch collectors, and watch enthusiasts get their fill of sports watches from Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Sinn watches/uhren, Ulysse Nardin, and Breitling. We open the show with a discussion of obscure versions of popular watches; Tim covers a few of his favorites including the Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A-010 in green, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra Thin 15202 in yellow gold with green dial, the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 5004-07 Zegg & Cerlati, and the piece unique Vacheron Constantin Overseas Automatic “lefty” from Vacheron’s Les Cabinotiers custom order program. Tim tackles the topic of sports watches for the water. As summer 2018 approaches its conclusion, we review different luxury watch options for the various kinds of waterborne activities that viewers might plan for the home stretch of the summer season. For those who seek to dive, dive watches including the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver (Scuba) and the Eterna Kontiki Diver. For those who stand watch in the Coast Guard, Navy, or Merchant Marine, Tim recommends the no-nonsense Breitling Aerospace Evo; its multiple superquartz functions make it a real-world option for those in uniform. Sailors and Guardsmen who insist on a mechanical watch will find fulfillment in the Sinn 900 Diapal dual-time chronograph. At the opposite end of the spectrum, those embarking on luxury cruise will find the Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph 5990/1A-001 ideal for their needs. Even better, it might be possible to shop aboard ship since the Queen Mary 2 features a Patek Philippe/Henri Stern boutique. Enterprising sailors who plan to skipper their own vessels will find the ultimate regatta chronograph in the Ulyusse Nardin Marine Regatta, a programmable regatta timer that also works as a traditional luxury chronograph; however, the Rolex Yacht Master II 116689 in white gold and platinum remains Tim’s sentimental favorite. Also included is Tim’s analysis of the new Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface.

Thanks to a number of eagle-eyed viewers, our host names and shames some of the worst watch sales listings on eBay and Chrono24. Our show contains all of the above and watch collector wrist shots this evening on “Watches Tonight.”

These stupid sunglasses make me cringe every time. Why stick with this childish look? You’re enough of a character by yourself, you don’t need a gimmick or prop! Really makes me distrust your taste in watches. Nothing “classic” or sophisticated or cool about them. Just very dorky looking…

Did Watch Box take last week off from broadcasting?

F Poynton says:

Tim – thanks for another inspiring horological ride. The Rolex YM is a design winner – every bit a beautiful melt of perfect tonal colors, textures, metals and sportiness . The green dial gold AP is spectacular – The movement pics breathtaking – a collectors dream.The viewers pic of his blue dial Breguet however may just take the handsome cake – that s a keeper. Well done Tim.

Great episode, Tim! Keep up the great work.

Ian Gault says:

I must admit – I laugh in the face of all my American and European friends complaining of the heat and humidity they are ‘suffering’! Living in Doha, Qatar, we experience heat nothing felt this side of hell itself with temperatures regularly in the low 50 deg C in the summer and humidity that a Swedish aupair wouldn’t encounter in a Nordic steam room. The only upside is that the best form of release is a visit to the many ADs in the Malls where temptation awaits and the heat of horological negotiation is at least tempered by the soothing massage of the icy A/C that chills the brain cells. Another one knocked out of the park Tim. Required listening from the master of horology and vocabulary.

Aaron Edgerton says:

Thank you Tim and crew! Great show! I missed the live video as it’s on in the morning in Brisbane, Australia and I was working. Love that Rolex Yacht Master! What are your thoughts on the Triton Subphotique and is it worth the price tag? Thanks again
