Welcome to the new format for isochron Media’s watch publications. Having published iW since 1990 and AboutTime since 2012, It’s now time to bring these two disparate publications together under the Isochron Media umbrella as a singular print publication. 

Over the years, I have noticed a recurring pattern with collectors that are new to the vintage watch market. There seems to be a tendency to compulsively buy too many watches at once without clear motivation as to why. 

As someone with a dual role in the watch industry, I’ve had what is probably an unusual vantage point on many things. My colleague Marc Frankel of Island Watch certainly knows what I am referring to as well. Having a position working in the editorial world and being a watch distributor and manufacturer is not an easy mission to juggle, but it also makes for an interesting perspective.

The new Ball Watch Company Engineer II U.S. Marine Corps is actually a series of steel-cased 40mm or 43mm three-hand watches or GMT steel watches, also made in two sizes (40mm or 44mm). And while all the watches are designed to fit within Ball’s Engineer collection, this new iteration salutes the 245th Anniversary of the U.S. Marines with the Marine Corps emblem on the dial of each model. 

Frank Sinatra is once again announcing “it’s Bulova time.”

The famed late singer is the star of a new series of ten Bulova watches named after well-known Frank Sinatra songs. The brand’s new Frank Sinatra Collection is dedicated to Sinatra – who was known for wearing Bulova watches – and features watches inspired by designs from the 1950s and 1960s. 

The story of Waldan Watches is an inspiring one. I’ve followed the progress of the company since the early days of International Watch way back in 1990, and with the re-birth of the brand led by the next generation of Waldans, it’s time to revisit the story and introduce its latest collection.
