The Most Influential & Iconic German Watch Design - The Junghans Max Bill Automatic Watch Review
 
16:37
When we think of iconic German watches, we think of A.Lange & Sohne, Sinn, Nomos or Glashutte Original among many others. But before all of them there was Junghans and the watch they are most famous for is also the most imitated but least appreciated watch of all German watches. We are of course talking about the Max Bill collection designed by the legendary Artist himself back in the early 60s. Today I review the unique and highly influential watch, a brief history of the Swiss designer and discuss why my favourite of the Max Bill collection is this automatic no-date version with the anthracite dial (ref. 027/3401.00). Infinitely stylish, timeless in elegance, a watch truly for the cultured and sophisticated. Nobody can deny the horological and design importance of the Max Bill watches from Junghans, PURE CLASS!

Seiko SARB035 Automatic Dress Watch Review - Plus Comparison To My Legendary SARB033
 
12:28
After the success of my SARB033 and many requests to check out its cream dialed brother, I borrow a SARB035 and review it. This was originally intended as a domestic Japanese release only for Seiko, but now thankfully is available at my most trusted online watch retailer of choice, Long Island Watches. The SARB and SARG series continue to be the sweet spot in Seiko range, offering unbelievable higher end quality, style and rock solid reliability for a staggeringly low price. So it's only logical that I take a look and compare it to my current reigning champion of the duels, the beloved SARB033.

The Interstellar Hamilton Khaki Pilot Day Date - The Best Automatic Aviation Watch Under $600?
 
17:28
Hamilton have many iconic watches under their belt and an impressive history of amazing aviation watches at affordable price too. Trust me, I should know, I have owned many of them! Today we take a look at one of their more recent icons made famous by the outstanding 2014 Christopher Nolan movie Interstellar. The Khaki Pilot Day Date is an automatic watch (Ref. H64615135) worn by "Cooper" (played by Matthew McConaughey) It is one of two watches that featured in the movie, the second being the ultra cool "Murph" watch which I also discuss. With a cool design, excellent quality and a bit of hollywood fame behind it, this is quite possibly one of the best automatic aviation watches under the $1000 to $600 price range.

Pure Ghastly! - Your 101 Watch Pet Peeves - From Patek, Seiko, Rolex, & Everything In Between
 
27:20
People who collect watches or are into horology tend to be very detail oriented, to the point of being overly fussy. This can cause divisiveness within the watch community, specifically when it comes to what we like to buy and collect. There are of course many things that unite us, such as our mutual disdain for fashion, replica or non-geniune watches. However, there are also many things that divide us, like homage watches, how we choose to wear our timepieces, and particular tastes, costs, or styles of watches. At the end of the day, what is important is that we all love horology. Even when looking at the things that drive us nuts about watches, we can all learn something, especially if you are considering buying a new watch. Regardless of whether you buy super luxury Pateks, rare vintage Rolex Submariners, or are a complete Seiko nut, you might just have to watch this first before buying your next watch.

My 5 Least Favorite Watches Of All Time From Rolex, Patek, Audemars Piguet, MVMT & Tiret

Today's video is a change from the norm as we take a trip to the dark side. As the good Gentry know, I prefer to always look at the positive sides of things. However, today I discuss 5 watches I profoundly dislike from a wide range of brands to see if there is anything I can learn from these timepieces. I discuss the Openworked Royal Oak from Audamars Piguet and how one of my favorite iconic super luxury sports watches has been ruined by after market customization. I look at the 40th anniversary Patek Philippe Nautilus and why it was a diaspointment for such an important commemorative occasion. I go on to discuss what makes the MVMT chronograph pointless, as well as the most over the top Rolex Daytona ever made and a vanity project gone wrong for Kanye West.

10 Reasons EVERYONE Should Own A Watch - Why It's Better Than A Cell Phone To Tell Time & Collect
 
21:46
In today's video I respond to a comment left on a recent video. A viewer made an excellent point "if cell phones have such accurate time, then what is the point of owning or buying a watch?" So in this video I share my 10 reasons why everyone should consider getting a watch. I directly compare each reason with the use of cell phones and explain why I am extremely optimistic about the future of watches and the hobby of collecting them . My ten reasons are as follows: 1. The link to the history of Horology and civilisation. 2. The importance of measuring time and how it unites us all. 3. The refinement in understanding and learning about horology. 4. The culture, hobby and community of collecting watches. 5. The tradition of owning, inheriting and passing down a timepiece. 6. The dependable practicality and functionality of a trusted technology. 7. The investment potential of buying the right watches. 8.

The Hamilton Khaki King Review - One Of The Best Swiss Automatic & Iconic Field Watches Under $500
 
20:05
***PLEASE NOTE: Hamilton have since updated the movement in this watch. The watch featured now has an upgraded H40 with an extended power reserve and slower rate of operation. Thank you. Today I review an old favourite and a watch I know very well. The Hamilton Khaki King (H64455523) is exactly as the name suggests. It is the more regal and slightly more elegant version of the legendary classic Hamilton Khaki military field watch. I am a former owner of the black dial version (H64455533) but somewhat over looked is the version I am reviewing today. Unlike its manual wind iconic forbearers, this version has a stunningly attractive dial, the added day and date complication, powered by a rock solid ETA, sapphire glass, and even a display back. With its more contemporary larger size and styling still very much still based on well over a half a century of tradition, this affordable classic packs one hell of a punch for well under $500. The American born and now Swiss made Hamilton Khaki watches have served the soldiers from the battlefields of World War 2, the Korean War, Vietnam War, and many more, so with that all being said, is it still one of the best automatics you can buy new for under $500?

Affordable Alternatives PART 2 - Rolex Submariner, Omega Speedmaster & Breitling Navitimer Watches

Today I follow up on a recent massively successful video where I looked at alternatives to 3 of the most iconic watches ever made. The conditions are simple. They must NOT be homage watches and have their own style from brands I respect to deliver a quality alternative. This time however, I look at choices suggested by my viewers in the comments of the previous video. For alternatives to the Rolex Submariner, in this video I suggest the Christopher Ward Trident C60 and Glycine Combat Sub. For the Omega Speedmaster, the Tissot V8 and the Longines Heritage 1954, then finally, for the Breitling Navitimer, I suggest the Sinn 903 and the Citizen Promaster Sky range.

Seiko SARB033 Automatic Watch Review - An Affordable, Classy & Extremely High Quality Japanese Watch

A review of a highly overlooked Seiko released within the domestic market in Japan but is now widely available on Amazon internationally. This cracking little piece boasts the external quality of Grand Seiko but at a fraction of the price. Sure, it does not have the famous high end movement of the grand Seiko line, but its robust workhorse movement is just as good as many mid range swiss counterparts costing several times the SARB033's asking price. Certainly an interesting piece that has me asking more questions then it answers. http://www.longislandwatch.com/Seiko_SARB033_Watch_p/sarb033.htm Make sure you subscribe and If you have any questions please email: [email protected]

Top 7 Toughest Watches For The End Of The World Or Zombie Apocalypse - The Best Options $50 To $10K In today's video I round up the 7 toughest watches that would serve you best in an end-of-civilisation scenario. No matter the budget or end of days event (alien invasion, rampaging Godzilla, giant asteroid, nuclear war, or zombie apocalypse), these choices will have the Gentry keeping time in any situation! We start with a look at my favourite mil-spec watch, the TSAR & GSAR from the legendary Canadian brand Marathon. Next I discuss the useful practicality of the Casio Protrek PRW-3000 series that could save your life. I then share my personal choice, none other than the trusty ceramic Submariner by Rolex. I follow up with the Sinn UX, perhaps one of the toughest watches ever made and the pinnacle of German ingenuity. The German theme continues with the sun powered Nomos Sonnenuhr, followed by the ever relied upon and Japanese invented G-shock. Tough as nails as these timepieces all are, there can only be one winner and that title goes to the Swiss with the Victorinox INOX, the only watch in the world that can survive being run over by a 64 ton tank and much, much more!

If You Only Want To Own 1 Luxury Watch - 5 Reasons Why A Rolex DateJust Is The Best Option At $2000+
 
15:45
I get asked every day my recommendation for a luxury watch for those not looking to collect but to have one single "do it all" luxury piece. A few months ago I shared my thoughts on why the Omega Seamaster makes a great first luxury watch. But that was on the assumption it would be the first of many in a collection or part of a journey in collecting. What if you just want one watch or only need to add one luxury piece to an existing collection? The DateJust from Rolex is my top suggestion. In my opinion it has the most to offer and so, today I share my 5 reasons why. From the modernity and rugged dependability of the contemporary 11620 or 116334, to the more affordable vintage charmers like the 16200, 16030 or even quartz versions like the 17013. In terms of history, versatility, value for money, quality, and just the sheer amount of options to choose from, it's hard to beat! I also share which DateJusts I have had the pleasure of owning and a brief history, including a very special guest, sir Winston Churchill himself.

A Military Classic & The Best $300 Swiss Made Field Watch - Hamilton Khaki Mechanical Review
 
18:27
Today I share a long overdue review of one of Hamilton's most iconic and affordable mechanical watches. The classic Khaki manual wind military field (Ref. H69419933) watch may look simple, but its history is longer than that of most watch companies. Its ancestors have seen combat in almost every major conflict involving the United States Army of the 20th century include both world war I & II and the Vietnam war. Not only does this timepiece boast a legacy many brands should be envious of, but it also happens to be one of the best entry-level Swiss mechanical watches on the market today. Regardless of whether you are just getting into this hobby and want to dip your toe into deeper, more traditional horological waters or you are a veteran collector and wish to buy an inexpensive classic for extra fun, this watch has it all. That said, it is far from perfect and today I give my in-depth analysis of this battle hardened icon.
