Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Auto

Paying tribute to what would have been the King of Rock and Roll’s 80th birthday, this handsome black watch offers 80 hours of power reserve. The Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Auto breaks challenging new technical and design ground with its steeply sloped crystal and curved dial, contemporary case architecture and intricate attachment fixture. The legend lives on…

Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Quartz

Stunning contemporary case architecture, intricate design detail and an asymmetric attachment fixture are teamed with a Swiss quartz movement to make a clearly modern statement. Attached by a black leather band , the watch sits comfortably on the wrist. Just as Elvis’s fusion of country music and rhythm and blues was way ahead of its time, this unisex watch has its eye firmly fixed on the future.

Christopher Ward C70 Limited Edition Chronometers

300dpi_C70-IT1921-SRRK_1

When the original 6 C70 watches were launched I wanted to collect them but never got them all. Later a few more were added to the C70 range and so I have the C70 DBR1, The C70 Monaco, The C70  IT Rosso Corsa, The C70 US Cunningham and the C70 D-Type. Clearly, I love this range and these four are arguably the best yet. For me though, the Red one is like my Rosso Corsa, The British one is like my DBR1, the French one is like my D-Type, so the obvious choice is the Belgian beauty. Guess I better start saving. Below is the press release from Christopher Ward about these gorgeous new watches. Continue reading

I already have a Hamiton Ventura automatic  as below and I simply love this watch.  I love Elvis and I love the Ventura! I know the Ventura’s are a very provocative watch, with most people either loving them or hating them, or secretly loving them but not daring enough to wear one. Lately I have been pretty content with my watch collection and the only things catching my eye are things beyond my pocket such as a Patek Phillippe Aquanaut but when I saw this I really was smitten. However, at 42,5 x 44,6 mm in size I will have to try one on as it might just be too big for me.

The one I like is the stainless steel face with stainless steel bracelet.
