In addition to the regular bi-monthly issues of WatchTime, we also publish numerous tablet-only specials that keep you well informed about particular topics. A new e-special appears monthly, each focused on a topic of interest to watch enthusiasts. Our editors choose a compilation of popular articles from the WatchTime archives for each e-special. These include our independent WatchTime watch tests, along with profiles and in-depth explorations of certain models and historical pieces on significant watch brands. Find everything you need to know about your favorite brands and models – or the brands and models that might become your favorites. WatchTime informs you with an independent voice, in great detail, and with infectious enthusiasm for watches. In addition to the e-specials, you’ll also find our Watch Tests special issue for downloading. Our online store allows you to access WatchTime’s unrivalled expertise on the world of watches via a simple download.
Are you planning to buy a pilots’ watch? With our e-special, you’ll be able to make an informed decision after reading nine tests of pilots’ watches from Breitling, Bell & Ross, Zenith, Tutima and other brands. Are you interested in finding the best chronographs for your particular tastes? Learn more in our compilation of tests featuring the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, the Zenith El Primero Striking 10th, the IWC Portuguese Yacht Club and the Seiko Ananta Automatic. Would you like to know more about Omega’s most important historical models? We introduce you to Omega’s milestone watches from 1892 to 2011. There’s also an e-special for fans of divers’ watches, where you’ll find the results of WatchTime’s tests of models from Omega, TAG Heuer, Oris and other brands. Another popular e-special is the “Omega Speedmaster Triple Feature,” where you can read about Omega’s history, tests of its watches, and detailed descriptions of its special editions. Our e-specials devoted to Rolex and Breitling are also extremely popular. But don’t take our word for it: read them and see for yourself.
WatchTime’s e-specials are also excellent sources of information for aficionados who are newcomers to the world of watches. Our e-special, “A Trio of Starter Watches” tells you whether it would be worthwhile to invest in a Rolex Air-King, a Panerai Luminor Base Logo or an IWC Portofino Automatic.
In addition to these e-specials (which are released monthly but can be downloaded at any time), WatchTime also presents its big “Watch Tests” special issue, in which you’ll discover a host of test features culled from the previous year’s worth of WatchTime issues. This special issue provides the perfect basis for your next watch purchase. The findings of the tests, and the characteristics of each watch, are presented in a comprehensive yet easy-to-grasp way that gives you exceptional insight into the pros and cons of each model. You’ll find out which divers’ watches, pilots’ watches and chronographs offer the best cost-benefit ratio. You’ll learn about each watch’s horological complications and how each holds up in the areas of accuracy, legibility and overall value. WatchTime’s test issue will help you find the best model for you and for every occasion.
