The 90’s: The TAG Heuer Carrera 1964 Re-Edition of 1996


After an eleven-year hiatus, the Heuer Carrera chronograph returned in 1996 as a high-fidelity re-edition original Carrera from 1963/64. Only the name “Carrera” was missing on the dial because of a conflict between brands. The reproduction encased hand-wound Lemania Caliber 1873. The first Heuer Carrera chronographs were still equipped with Valjoux Caliber 72.

Borrowed Time: Hands-on with the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator

Ocean Crawler is an independent, small-scale brand based out of Rochester, NY that I first learned about through Instagram. My initial impression after looking through its online presence was one of interest. The technical details were impressive, and it seemed like each model boasted true tool watch functionality, while the designs used an attractive variety of bright orange, black, and blue hues. Each model was unique and stood on its own, yet there was a vague sense of familiarity to many of...

Longines, a watch brand that has long led the field in “neo-vintage” watches, has once again demonstrated its skill in this arena with the new Heritage Skin Diver. The dive watch — which comes on the heels of the critically-acclaimed Legend Diver watch, a 1960s super-compressor-style diver, and last year’s Avigation BigEye, based on a 1930s aviation chronograph— is a further expansion of the brand’s popular Heritage collection.

This new piece is based on a skin diving (or shallow-water...
