TAG Heuer Celebrates Its 160th Anniversary by Combining the Carrera and Montreal

2020 marks the 160th anniversary for Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer, and earlier this year, the brand had released a 1964 Carrera chronograph reissue to celebrate the occasion. Now, it’s following up with yet another limited edition, this time combining the iconic Carrera chronograph with a rather surprising watch: the first-generation Montreal.   Taking a ’70s Carrera chronograph as its base, the brand applied the design sensibilities of the first-generation Montreal, creating a truly bold chronograph filled with whites, blues, reds, and yellows, adorning all parts of the watch including the dial, indices, minute and hour hands, the vibrant seconds hand, as well as all three subdials. The case itself is stainless steel and measures in at a more classic 39mm, with a windowed caseback on the...

Watchfinder & Co. Explains Why the Omega Seamaster Trumps the Rolex Submariner

Watchfinder & Co. has just released a new video pitting two of the most time-tested (and marketed) Swiss dive watches against each other — the OMEGA Seamaster and the Rolex Submariner. Using the 116610LV Sub aka Hulk and the ref. 210.32.42.20.06.001 Seamaster as the talking points, Watchfinder & Co. delivers another video that is sure to appease anyone from those that are looking for their first luxury watch, to those that already have their collection dialed in.   The video explains that while on paper, the OMEGA Seamaster bests the Submariner in the categories: craftsmanship, history, movement, details, price, availability, to name a few, Rolex is king in something that matters most: branding.

Tesla Cuts Prices; Model S and X Long Range

Tesla is dropping the base models (again), except this time, the prices aren't increasing as they did in January. Consistent with Tesla's frequently adjusted pricing and product availability, the latest changes that quietly appeared on the Tesla website this week dropped two cheaper models of the Model S and Model X. The Standard Range cars are gone, and the Long Range cars—now the base trim—are each down $8010. That means that, for just a couple grand more than the base models that were still being made last week, the Model S is finally at eye level with gasoline-powered luxury cars, at least in estimated EPA range. The 370-mile Model S (up from the Standard Range's 285) costs $81,190. The 325-mile Model X (up from...
