High end watchmaking - The Vacheron Constatin Fifity Six Day date | VARIO

Being a watch lover has its drawbacks, these things are expensive! In the back of your head you always have that unicorn watch which can cost as much a car, not always but if you are going to dream, dream big. For me when I started this hobby, Tag Heuer was the brand to have, I am not talking the whole spectrum of watch enthusiast, but in the 90s if you were under 20 years old a plastic bezel Tag Heuer Formula 1 was the equivalent of having a Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 today.

Timeless HMS | VARIO Review

Timeless HMS | VARIO Review

I got to know Jonathan Kopp from Watch Is This when he reviewed my Empire dress watch. We stayed in touch and recently he told me he got his hands on a cool Swiss microbrand Timeless  Watch and asked if I would like to check out their maiden watch, the HMS. Intrigued by the Art Deco influence in the design, I said yes and Jonathan sent the watch to me via La Poste. It reached my hands in 3-4 days which is impressively fast given the pandemic.

More Options for Your G-Shock Watch Strap with VARIO’s G-Shock Adapter Kit

When G-Shock Japan unveiled their Military Black Series back in 2016, tactical watch enthusiasts were on the edge of their seats. The all-black DW-5600BBN-1JF, DW-6900BBN-1JF, and GA-100BBN-1AJF were rolled out with monotone blackout faces, reverse LCDs, and patented CORDURA® straps, notorious for their resilience in the harshest conditions. Unfortunately, this left owners of previous models with limited options when it came to achieving the same look or level of durability the CORDURA® straps were providing. Short of purchasing an entirely new watch, they were stuck with standard straps of most G-Shock collections. Until now. VARIO rolled out a custom G-Shock...
