Tonight on This Week In Watches, Tim Mosso and Josh Thanos discuss the newest luxury watches, a battle between the Omega Constellation Globemaster and the Zenith (El Primero) Captain Winsor, and new watches from Glashutte Original, RGM Watches, Czepek & Cie., Cvstos watches, and Parmigiani Fleurier. The show opens with a hypothetical showdown between Zenith and Omega for a watch buyer’s hard earned dollars. In order to provide value, complications, and strong brand support to a watch collector on a budget, we compare two complicated steel sports watches for less than $10,000 U.S.: the Zenith (El Primero) Captain Winsor Annual Calendar and the Omega Constellation Globemaster Annual Calendar. Which one offers the best value to watch buyers? Our new polling feature allows actual collectors to join the discussion. New watches will be showcased from top luxury watch brands in Switzerland, Germany, and the Unitred States. Glashutter Original has launched a new flyback chronograph called the Senator Chronograph Capital Edition. This limited edition chronograph from Saxony will be offered in steel (100 pieces) rose gold (25 pieces) and platinum (5 pieces); Glashütte Original caliber 37-01 provides 70 hours of automatically wound power. Crowdfunded Geneva brand Czapek & Cie has launched new version of its Quai des Bergues watch with engine-turned dials from Metelem. Dials in green, grey, red, blue, slate, and Havana brown are cut with traditional guilloche technique and equipment. Steel, rose gold, and titanium Quai des Bergues models are available as part of the new Czapek watch line. Cvstos of Geneva offers a new pirate-themed “Jetliner Pirate Guns” that will be available in aged steel, aged bronze, or blackened steel with rose gold accents. RGM watches of Pennsylvania, USA and its owner, Roland G. Murphy, have launched a new dual time watch called the RGM Model 350 Timezone Big Date. Parmigiani Fleurier has a new calendar watch in the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Quator Annual Calendar; it will be available in white gold and rose gold with Parmigiani automatic caliber PF339. Finally, we discuss the luxury watch industry news of the week including the death of Sinn Watches founder Helmut Sinn and the best article written this week among the ranks of luxury watch journalists: “Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic 5 Days Watch Hands-On & Why This New Mechanical Movement Matters.” Ariel does justice to the quality and significance of Baume & Mercier’s 2018 Clifton Baumatic 5-Days in chronometer and non-chronometer form. The new watch boasts an exclusive mechanical automatic caliber with a five-day power reserve, anti-magnetic silicon hairspring, low-friction silicon escapement, a five-year service interval, and – for a small premium – a COSC chronometer certification… for $2,500 U.S.
