Sinn should need little introduction to regular readers here at worn&wound. We’ve covered a number of watches from the brand over the last couple of years, and we’ve always been impressed with the quality of watches from the German company. Like last year, Sinn debuted a handful of new models at Baselworld, and today we’ll take a look at three of the more exciting pieces.
Last year Luminox announced their partnership with the Space Expedition Corporation (SXC). The SXC is part of the current privatization of space travel and is developing craft for commercial space flights. The goal of the SXC is to provide space travel to commercial clients. Each flight will be a pilot and passenger; a truly unique opportunity, for those who can afford it.
Bremont is a brand that hasn’t gotten enough coverage here on worn&wound. It’s not that we don’t like British watchmaker; on the contrary, we’re big fans of a number of their watches (the MBII and the Supermarine are two exceptional feats of engineering).
Seiko’s Prospex line of watches has previously not been available in the US market, but they’ve announced at BaselWorld 2014 that, starting in 2014 the Prospex line that will be available in the US! This is excellent news for us American Seiko fans.
MeisterSinger, known for their industry leading one-hand watch designs and unique philosophy on time telling, have released two new and exciting pieces at Baselworld 2014, the Salthora jump hour and Paleograph mono-pusher chronograph.
It’s no surprise that Casio is pushing new technological innovations at this year’s Baselworld. With smartphones gaining market share, the Japanese makers of the rugged and collectable G-Shock series are touting global positioning satellite and Bluetooth capabilities in their new line.
130 year old Swiss brand Alpina seems to be in the process of reinventing itself, going back to what made the company great. Alpina’s original Alpine 4 from the 1930s was a watch conforming to company founder Gottlieb Hauser’s four criteria for a sports watch: anti-magnetic, anti-shock, water resistant, and made of stainless steel.
