A Complete Guidebook On Zenith Academy Minute Repeater Chronograph Watch

The Academy collection from Swiss Zenith is back with more, introducing this new Academy El Primero Minute Repeater Chronograph. This is a very high-end and exclusive version of the Zenith Elite design family which the model lives in. This isn’t the first Zenith minute repeater, but they aren’t common for the brand. For the right high-end collectors, this could be a very special timepiece.

On the Wrist:Panerai Luminor California 8 Days DLC PAM00779 Watch

If there is one thing Swiss Panerai is known for, it’s the ability to house a plethora of same-but-still-different watch models in the Luminor Collection. The sheer number of different flavors is enough to make one’s head spin, but it’s also what’s made the collection so wildly popular.

Presenting The New Frederique Constant Ladies Automatic Watch

Swiss Frederique Constant‘s new Ladies’ Automatic collection, introduced at a launch party in London last night hosted by brand ambassador Gwyneth Paltrow, is compelling for two main reasons. One, the company is donating $50 for every watch sold from the new collection to DonorsChoose.org, a charity chosen by Paltrow. Secondly, the watch in its basic version is pretty much exactly what you want in a classically styled everyday ladies’ watch.
