    Alsta Nautoscaph II: Alsta Returns with ‘Jaws’ Watch Reissue

    The Alsta Nautoscaph watch was made famous when oceanographer Matt Hooper (as played by Richard Dreyfuss) wore it in the 1975 film Jaws. Sadly, despite the infusion of free publicity that came from the super-mega-blockbuster success of the movie, Alsta went out of business shortly after. But now, they’re back, with the Alsta Nautoscaph II. And as the company itself […]

  • The Fifth Element: An “Intergalactic Horological Weather Station” (Video)

    The Fifth Element: An “Intergalactic Horological Weather Station” (Video)

    “Intergalactic / horological / horological / intergalactic.” That’s probably the Beastie Boys parody I would propose if I were on the board at MB&F, which has collaborated with L’Epée for what they describe as an “intergalactic horological weather station” called, with apologies to Bruce Willis and Luc Besson, The Fifth Element.  The Fifth Element has four pods, each […]

    A new joint collaboration from L’Epée 1839 and MB&F is a must-own for anyone who believes their home timepieces just aren’t evil enough. It’s the Octopod, said to be inspired by “cephalopods, marine chronometers and The Abyss.” And, naturally, as per the clock‘s official press release, it takes a heavy portion of its design from the […]

    WIRED x ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Timepieces

    What time is it right now? If you have a correctly tuned watch, you know. What time is it in New York? Los Angeles? London? Tokyo? Wellington? If you have a fancy-enough watch with world clock features, you know. What time is it in the Mushroom Kingdom? No matter how nice your watch is, you […]

    ‘The Watch Book: Rolex’ Traces 112 Years of Rolex History

    One way to gauge the importance of an art’s practitioner by how well the general public, rather than followers of the art form in question, know the practitioner in day to day conversation. By that metric, Rolex has to be the greatest watch brand of all time, since it’s quite possibly the only watch brand […]
