In the last week of 2016 we are going to kick it old-fashioned style by observing a typical chronometer, Wittnauer 235t. Our previous watch brand looks a very unique, bold 242 t, and today’s watches may not trigger any “holy grail alert”, which is worthy of its own because it is such a satisfying watch. Similarly, if you are a speculator, this “witty” may be a good bet but we will elaborate later. Rest with Christmas after sales, close suspicious bowl games, read a very good, now, affordable retro chronograph.

Every year, watch brands release pieces that strike closer and closer to the essence of their original, iconic forebears. In the past, this has come in an array of forms, from Zenith’s El Primero Original 1969, to the Cartier Tank Louis Cartier collection, to the reference 15202 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. This year is no different, with the release of TAG Heuer’s Monaco Caliber 11, Tudor’s Heritage Black Bay “Black,” Seiko’s Grand Seiko 62GS, and a new collection that has not gone unnoticed by many vintage-watch enthusiasts: the Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic collection.
Have you ever wondered what a modern, iconic chronograph watch would look like if it were fitted with hands designed ages ago? No? Yes? Ok, the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Time Machine Nendo Japan Limited Edition offers an answer to that fascinating question.
If you are like me, you have heard about TAG Heuer however so far did not know about Nendo. Worry not, as we shall discover right now that over the last 18 years this Tokyo, Japan-based design company has worked on everything from designing shoe stores through creating graphics and advertisements, all the way to a wide range of products – which happen to include watches. As such, in one of its latest ventures, Nendo has collaborated with TAG Heuer to create a very cool TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Time Machine Nendo Japan Limited Edition, with a set of highly unusual red hands – not linked to but strangely reminiscent of those unnecessarily large and yet strangely awesome swords flung around viciously by Japanese anime cartoon characters.
