Watches and cars go hand in hand so it shouldn't be a surprise that Blackbird launches a new title focused solely on watches. Blackbird Watch Manual shares in the same appreciation of heritage and design with stories from the watch world and beyond.
"In this first volume of Blackbird Watch Manual, we take a closer look at the A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk on the 10th anniversary of the introduction of the collection, which has gone from being a niche product designed out of technical curiosity to a pillar of the brand’s identity, spawning multiple models, including the recently introduced Zeitwerk Date. We also share a detailed investigation of the Rolex reference 6538 Submariner, exploring its variations in configurations and the production batches that define the series, as well as another in-depth feature sharing how watches have been used as a canvas by artists and brands alike.
Rounding the issue out, we have features on the quest for chronometric precision, the life of the famed watchmaker George Daniels, the Cartier ID concept watches, a tour of both Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works and the new factory of furniture maker Vitsœ, the F.P. Journe Tourbillon Souverain Vertical, together with musing about the current state of the industry and what future vintage watches may consist of."
