Who doesn’t love a blue dial? Sure, we have seen an abundance of blue-hued dials enter the market in recent years; specifically, stainless steel watches with blue dials, but this vivid color continues to be a fan favorite. The recent release of the Tudor Black Bay 58 ‘Navy Blue,’ with its quick to market strategy and vintage charm, kicks off this latest edition of After Hours. Join Armand Johnston, C’Q Gottlieb, and Alex Lazarus back at WatchBox’s HQ in Philly for an animated conversation about the year’s debuts to date – from favorites to least favorites – and watches from the vault that caught their eyes.
From the comfort and versatility of the Black Bay collection to the mesmerizing fumé dials of H. Moser & Cie, the exceptional collaboration between Moser and MB&F, and the captivating qualities of just about everything from the MAD Gallery – rubber duck clearly included – there’s so much packed into this episode. Highlights from the conversation include F.P. Journe’s new Chronomètre à Résonance with double remontoir, a titanium-cased Breitling Superocean with a distinct yellow dial, the uber-bright BR 03-92 Diver Full Lum from Bell & Ross, and much more.
