Opinion
When a watch is more than just a watch. Like many things in life, I have found that some of my best-loved watches are not the most expensive, or prestigious, in fact more often than not they are the exact opposite, usually lesser known brands that do not command high prices.

The Collector’s Experience : Oris Air Racing Edition III by Guillaume J.

Opinion
Happy owner of a Bell and Ross model BR03-92 (which ruined my bank account when I bought it), it was five years ago my first purchase in terms of an automatic Swiss watch.

But (because there is always a but) when I went to the watch store where I had bought the B&R, which is also a Hamilton distributor, I…

Since its debut, the watch brand has made quite an impact in the world of watchmaking and now comes back in the market with again a very astonishing piece.
