Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato Chronograph [Pricing]

Zagato of Milan exists in a pantheon of royalty in the world of car design.  Their custom coachwork stands at the pinnacle of automotive beauty and extreme design.  I mean, just look at the Aston Martin DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial and the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial.  So, when I learned that Chopard would be teaming with Zagato to create two 500-piece limited editions of their Mille Miglia Chronograph, I was excited, to say the...

Watches can be amazing.  Some watches are tools, implements of amazing craftsmanship and mechanical wizardry by which we can track the passage of seconds, minutes, hours and days with greater and greater accuracy and technical precision.  Other watches are art, objects of extreme creativity for which the telling of time works part and parcel with its design, enhancing its beauty.  And, an extraordinary few watches are both.  They have...

Introducing the HAUTLENCE Avant-Garde HLRQ 01

Whenever I see a watch like the HAUTLENCe Avant-Garde HLRQ 01, I realize just how big the watch world is and how many more I really, really want.  Hard to pronounce, but easy to look at, the HAUTLENCE Avant-Garde HLRQ 01 is one of those watches that make you fall in love with watchmaking all over again. In the same vein as brands like Urwerk, MB&F and Hyt, Hautlence was founded in 2004 to create “original concepts in reading...

Zenith El Primero Lightweight: A Lighter Side of El Primero

I really like Zenith watches.  I’ve had a Zenith Elite for about 8 years, and it’s been great.  Whenever there is a new Zenith to take a look at, I’m always excited, especially when it is one from the famed El Primero line.  So, now that Zenith is presenting an ultra-light variation of their much-lauded El Primero Striking 10th, TickTickVroom is keen to check it out.  It’s called the Zenith El Primero...

Nismo Watch Concept: A Nissan GT-R for Your Wrist [Video]

Watches and cars go very well together.  So well, in fact, that I started a watch and car blog.  There have been a lot of watch and car combos over the years.  TAG Heuer and Mercedes.  Hublot and Ferrari.  Hublot and Senna.  Girard-Perregaux and Ferrari.  Oris and RAID Suisse-Paris Rally.  Breitling and Bentley.   The list goes on and on, but, they all have one thing in common.  They are watches with car themes.  Apart from a few...

Introducing the Longines Avigation Oversize Crown

A year ago, Longines release the Avigation Watch Type A-7 pilot’s watch.  Inspired by a 1930s U.S. military pilot’s watch, it was a cool modern take on a cool old watch.  Longines has just released another Avigation watch, the Avigation Oversize Crown, inspired by a watch they produced in the 1920s.   I guess that since the Longines Avigation Oversize Crown, in all three variations, takes a cue from a watch from the...

Introducing the Longines Asthmometer-Pulsometer Chronograph

OK, fine… The Longines Asthmometer-Pulsometer Chronograph is really just a chronograph with a fancy scale painted on the dial.  But, it’s a pretty chronograph with a fancy scale painted on the dial.  Longines says their new Asthmometer-Pulsometer Chronograph is “elegance in the service of science,” and I’d have to agree.  The watch is truly lovely and elegant even if it is strikingly similar to the...

My Hamilton Ventura… Finally!

In 1957 the Hamilton Watch Co. debuted the Hamilton Electric Ventura and the Van Horn as the first two electric watches.  Both watches utilized the new caliber 500 electric movement, powered by the recently developed Button Battery, the same battery that now powers nearly every battery-powered watch in use today. The Hamilton Electric Van Horn was a conservatively designed round watch with little exterior flair.  Conversely, the...
