Everyone knows Peter for their vintage leather straps, but few know his other works, among many… myself.
I discovered his work in canvas when I bought a strap for my Bronzo 382 a few weeks ago, and I really was surprised by its quality and above all as looks put on the watch.
Now I make review about one of the most outstanding straps I see in Canvas; the Blue Canvas no#6 by Gunny.

Corrigia presents this “spring” strap; the ROGER BLU-SPECIALE fashion and ductil for wear in a Pam watches. Nice and soft taste & touch on the wrist, perhaps the keeper are too thin and may have a tendency to break easily if hard use of the strap is made, but the supplier ships with an extra free strap keeper-
One of the reasons why I’m a fan straps Peter Gunny is the background that each one of them. Peter is an artist, and his mentality when manufacturing straps is not only the production of a material, but the production of a story that wear on the wrist with a watch.
The “Tattoo Series” strap is one of my favorites, and I‘ll explain for what.
First time I see this strap, I think “-wow!! really amazing but.. I think its too strong because its “fat-” so, when wear the strap in my wrist, feeling the authentic “vintage” feeling also a confortable movement in my wrist. Of course its a “big” strap not for wear with all clothes but, honestly, the finished and details of this strap are amazing… and the quality of the leather its nice.

For 2015, has a few interesting new watches, but my favorite is the Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio 47mm aka PAM00604 (PAM604). This is really a watch for collectors, and Panerai has made especially sure that the PAM604 very much fits into Panerai lore, being available for sale exclusively in the brand’s flagship boutique store in Florence, Italy, or Firenze in Italian – the city where the Panerai brand started. Hence the name of the watch “Radiomir Firenze.” Continue reading →
Bulova saw more strong new watch offerings for Baselworld 2015 – with attractive designs and strong values. What I love about the “Bulova of today” is that in addition to its mainstream offerings, there are more and more products specifically designed for the watch aficionado, such as this limited edition version of the new Bulova Sea King – which feels like a less expensive alternative to the Omega Seamaster Ploprof watch. So let’s check out this circa $1,500 mechanical 1000-meter diver new from Bulova for 2015.
Full Review of Breitling Emergency II in two languages, English and Spanish. A watch that many hate and others worship, top technology for emergency stages of carrieres this fantastic watch in my opinion.
Breitling introduced its Breitling Emergency watch — the first wristwatch with a built-in emergency microtransmitter — in 1995. Since then, the watch has been worn and used by many professional pilots and has played a role in numerous search-and-rescue missions. At Baselworld 2013, Breitling introduced another world-first with its Emergency II, the first watch with a dual frequency locator beacon.
The original Breitling Emergency, which was designed to enable accurate homing in on pilots or passengers following a plane crash, operated on the 121.5 MHz international air distress frequency. Pilots prized it for its utility: it could be worn constantly on the wrist and serve as a supplement to standard onboard aircraft equipment. Around 40,000 Breitling Emergency watches have been sold since their launch.
The Breitling Emergency II represents the next generation of its predecessor’s life-saving microtechnology. The very first wristwatch equipped with a built-in personal locator beacon (PLB), its dual frequency transmitter is compliant with the specifications of the Cospas-Sarsat international satellite alert system and can be used both to issue alerts and to guide search-and-rescue missions.
