Watch-Spotting: The Rolex watches of Goldfinger

We’ve been dodging the heat and humidity of UAE summer this year by grabbing our favorite spot on the sofa, and watching all manner of TV shows and movies. Most recently we fed our trusty Blu-ray player a copy of 1964’s Goldfinger – one of our favorite James Bond films. The enhanced resolution and colors gave us full sight of two very cool Rolex watches – the Rolex Submariner 6538 and Rolex GMT Master 6542.

Note the position of the bezel, and the ill-fitted regimental strap.

Omega launches the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black

Seamasters have been part of Omega’s collection for decades, and it was 2005 when Omega first added the Planet Ocean watches to the Seamaster roster. Planet Ocean timepieces are designed to be true divers watches and now, just three months after Baselworld, Omega has announced four all new Planet Ocean timepieces.

The Speedmaster is no longer the only ceramic Omega you can get your hands on. We're partial to both the blue and red references.

Bremont Terra Nova touches down in the region

Bremont is a young British watch brand with a little over 10 years of experience under its belt and, as a company, it produces just a few thousand watches every year. The company was founded in 2002 by Nick and Giles English, both of who are serious aviation buffs. (One look at a selection of Bremont’s watches should be enough to convince you of the brothers’ irrepressible love of aviation.)
