TWIW: Patek Philippe v. Rolex; New Glashutte Original, Jaeger LeCoultre; Bell & Ross; Grand Seiko

Tonight on This Week In Watches, Tim Mosso takes luxury watch collectors on a tour of new and exciting luxury watch models. The show opens with a head-to-head comparison of white gold dual-time pilot's watches from Patek Philippe and Rolex. The 2014 Rolex GMT Master II 116719BLRO receives a workout against the 2015 Patek Philippe 5524G Calatrava Pilot Travel Time; our audience decides which of these premium pilot's watches gets its boarding pass. We discuss new luxury watches from Glashutte Original, Jaeger LeCoultre, Oris, and Bell & Ross. The Glashutte Original Senator Cosmopolite Minimalist is new for 2018 thanks to the model's first appearance in stainless steel. This travel time watch is designed to accommodate 36 time zones and daylight savings time. Oris presents a blue note value proposition in the Oris Thelonious Monk limited edition of 1,000 pieces with blue dial and stainless steel case. Bell & Ross reinforces its storied Instrument Watch series with a new Bell & Ross BR-03-092 Night Lum model that sports a high-visibility dial. The new 42mm BR-03-092 Night Lum features a black ceramic case, neon green C3 Superluminova, and 100-meter water resistance. Jaeger LeCoultre's 2018 model year has been a story of the Polaris line, but the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds with chameleon-like sunburst blue-to-purple dial is a hidden highight of the Le Sentier watchmaker's 2018 novelty class. Since Tim is hosting solo tonight, we decided to double our content of "This-or-That" features. Tonight, a second comparison pits the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Blue ( M79230) against the SINN T2B (EZM15) in a battle of bargain priced titanium dive watches. Finally, we highlight the best article written this week in the luxury watch space, "Comparing the Best of Japanese Watchmaking - Grand Seiko 8 Day And Credor Eichi II" by SJX (link below).
