Posted by Troy Barbagallo at

  “A perfect circle in a perfect square” is how CLERC describes its famous and unique Hydroscaph case architecture design.

Perth's HOROLOGIST takes part in epic custom Harley Sportster project - inspired by watches

Posted by Troy Barbagallo at

MISS UNIVERSE: SHAW SPEED’S HARLEY 48 CUSTOM   We don’t see many Sportsters with a racy slant. But this new machine from ShawSpeed & Custom shows what is possible.

He promptly got in touch with Shaw’s larger-than-life principal Steve Willis, and they started kicking around ideas.   “Troy wanted a custom motorcycle in his garage, but it had to be his own, something unique,” says Steve. “Inspirations were his love of timepieces, working movements and...

Posted by Troy Barbagallo at

Linde Werdelin presented two new additions to their Spidolite family this year at Baselworld, the Spidolite Titanium and Spidolite Gold. The new watches continue the Spidolite theme of reduction in the name of weight loss, presenting an open worked dial layout first seen on the Spidospeed.
