Each month I will post a top ten of the watches on my want list. It is a very personal list and generally will be of watches that I can actually aspire too. It is not a list I intend to tick off as life isn’t that kind and in truth it has been a long while now since I actually bought a watch, but if funds came available it would be something off this list. Each month the list will change slightly as desires and wants change, or as watches become unavailable and so on. So here is my list for August, with photos following.
1. Breitling Aerospace Evo – Grey edition.
2. Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase – blue edition.
3. Chopard Monaco Historique MF Time Attack.
4. Armani Grey faced Chronograph
5. Junkers Bauhaus Power Reserve Automatic.
6. Autodromo Stradale Grey Dial
7. Autodromo Prototipo – orange and silver edition.
8. Chopard Monaco Historique 2014 Edition Chronograph.
9. Hamilton Ladies Bagley Quartz
10. Rolex Milgauss Blue Face.

These were announced at Baselworld and have been available since August but as we don’t get out much here at Beastie Folly these have only just caught our eye. Both myself and Lady P like the look of this watch so we will track one down in the flesh to have a proper look. Hamilton’s promotional blurb is a glorious exercise in flowery language and I particularly like, “applied indexes visually…
When Christopher Ward first launched his C70 range it was quite an ambitious project for them. At the time they launched it they were a smaller company and it was a set of 6 watches all limited to 500 of each version and all commemorating the first Grand Prix circuit from the six countries in the set.
C70 Brooklands – UK
C70 Ascari – Belgium
C70 Silver Arrows – Germany
C70 Cunningham – USA
I have to admit I’m a Breitling fanboy. I’m a sucker for their videos and all the machismo that is imbued in them. I really like their analogue / digital models too. The Aerospace is a winner with me and so is this beauty. The new Cockpit B50. Here is what Breitling say about it and I ain’t arguing – hey I’m a fanboy!
