This is one of the rarest and most obscure Cartier watches in existence. It’s called the Cartier Cheich and they only made four pieces. Back in the 1980s, Alain Dominique Perrin – the man in charge of brand at the time – and Paris-Dakar founder Thierry Sabine came up with an idea for a unique … More This Cartier was created for the 1983 Dakar rally. It is now up for auction
On today’s episode of “Watches That Everyone Wants But No One Can Buy”, we introduce the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Music Editions. I’m not sure who thought of this but this is genius. This watch is guaranteed to sell like hot cakes, partly because it’s an AP and also because people go crazy over … More Yay! Yet another AP Royal Oak no one can buy. It’s beautiful, though

In a recent episode of the ‘Swiss Watch Gang’, she revealed her watch collection, which features the inevitable plethora … More Supercar Blondie’s watch collection is… unboring
I’d say this is a strange, unexpected but overall interesting collaboration: Panerai, born in Italy but currently owned by the Swiss group Richemont, teamed up with Brabus for a new skeletonised automatic watch. It’s based on the Submersible and named ‘Brabus Black Ops Edition’ (ref. PAM01240), and just like Brabus cars, it is loud, carbon … More This Brabus-signed Panerai is loud and expensive, just like the cars
