I also posted a new video review of the AVI-8 Hawker Hunter, a quartz chronograph from AVI-8. Featuring aviation inspired styling and solid build quality.

Shot a new video review of the Spinnaker Bradner watch. Pretty sweet little vintage diver. Enjoy!

My video review of the legendary Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. This is the version with the Plastic Hesalite crystal and manual movement just like the original. Hope you enjoy it!

The Breitling DC-3 wraps up its world tour

Having departed from Geneva last March, the Breitling DC-3 made its grand return to Switzerland after circling the globe, landing in Sion where 100,000 passionate enthusiasts are set to attend the Breitling Sion Airshow 2017. A new feat for this legendary plane still in perfectly flightworthy condition and which is celebrating its 77th birthday this year.

Breitling released a bang-for-buck watch made of Breitlight® which is essentially a exclusive polymer (plastic) blend that looks to contain some carbon, fiberlgass or graphite in it to strengthen it. It also happens to give it a look similar to Forged Carbon, which is very cool. Its funny though because at $2000 it is considered a budget luxury watch, but I remember not long ago we could get a Colt Automatic in Steel for around that price! How things have changed.

Breitlight® is described as a state-of-the-art material, as most high-tech polymers are, but it really is just a cool-looking, very rigid plastic. It is probably not too different from Luminox’s Carbon reinforced polymer cases, though it does look a bit different. I would like to see Breitling add a Professional III bracelet made from Breitlight® to the watch. This would make it much cooler in my opinion.
