Maratac Mid Pilot Watch

An email I got yesterday:

“Hey man, I have $300 to spend and I want an automatic watch that will last for the rest of my life. I play hard too… What should I get?”

There aren’t a lot of quality automatics on the market for that short of dough, but if I had to pick one I’d probably go with one of the Maratac government issue watches. They are Japanese movements, but they are also built like a brick shit house. My favorite at the moment is the Red Crowned Mid Pilot. You can get them here… or watch eBay for better deals.

G-Shock GB6900AA-5

I’m actually a pretty big fan of G-Shock watches – the cheaper the better. While they make a lot of “whizz bang” watches, I’m more into their classic lines that simply tell time without cluttering anything else up. That being said, this new bluetooth watch has some potential.

Check out the details.

Seamaster Bullhead

A buddy of mine at Omega just casually dropped a bomb on me. Apparently, they are getting to re-release the iconic Omega Seamaster Bullhead. It’ll be true to the original save for the modern auto movement… And count on it being VERY expensive, but man-oh-man….

ORIS AIR RACING EDITION III

I’m typically not an Oris guy. I often find their face designs and UI to be a bit stale. However, this new Air Racing Edition has caught my imagination in a major way. It feels like an aircraft gauge, but it’s not an over done birthday cake. Just really well done…

Check it out.

The Music Machine

MB&F took a break from making watches and made a music machine. It’s completely worthless and beautiful all at the same time.

See Hodinkee for more details.
