#TBT The Citizen 51-2273 Diver and a Welcome to the Brand

#TBT Taking a Look at the Heuer Carrera 12 Dato Reference 2547

Heuer Carrera 12 Dato

Standing on the beach with a beer in my hand. No, that’s not an alternative take on a classic hit from The Cure. It was me and it was this past August somewhere in the Algarve of Portugal.   Actually, my phone was nearby and when it rang, the Dutch-infused voice of Paul, our nearly in-house […]

Taking a Look at the Yemas at Watches of Knightsbridge

Taking a Look at the Yemas at Watches of Knightsbridge

Here on Fratello Watches, we’ve featured a number of vintage Yema models on our site. These fun, often brightly colored watches represented the affordable side of the hobby: often mimicking far more expensive Heuers with semi-similar design motifs, but costing far less in the marketplace. They were plentiful, robust – with most containing 773x movements […]

#TBT Rolex GMT-Master 1675 – An Icon

#TBT Rolex GMT-Master 1675 – An Icon

You are not a real watch guy unless you own a Rolex – you hear this comment pretty often in our community. Up to a certain extent I can agree with this. Rolex is the only brand everybody knows regardless of their country, status, annual income, gender etc. you name it. For over a 110 years (the […]

#TBT Tissot Navigator Yachting – After

Tissot Navigator Yachting Roughly 5 months ago I published a #TBT about a vintage Tissot Navigator. That article was titled „before”. Anyone who read that piece knows exactly why I gave that name to the write-up. The watch I bought was in sorry condition, the crystal was cracked and it was not original, the bezel […]

This week’s #TBT focuses on a model from brand that’s finally getting some long overdue attention: the Gallet Multichron 45. Here on Fratello Watches, we’ve had a couple articles on Gallet – and more are coming – but I’ve mainly had my attention on the larger 3-register Multichrons (Gallet’s name for their chronographs).
