Welcome back to our regular weekend feature, Watching the Web. In this series, we take a look back at interesting articles from across the wider web of watch sites, as well as highlighting some of the most read articles from our own sites. From our friends in the world of watch writing, we have a limited-edition Seiko, a Davosa hands-on, and an editorial around the accuracy of mechanical watches. From our own pages, we have the latest bronze Steinhart, a dual timezone watch currently on Kickstarter, our latest entry in our “Interview with a Watch Maker” series, and a great roundup of options to keep your pockets organized.
Wow. If you are really into vintage-inspired watches, this is the time for you. Specifically, if you are in the original MilSubs (you know, just like that famous Rolex Submariner and the like), then this really is the time for you.

Have you caught all the Pokemans? Well Romain Jerome wants you to know that you probably haven’t, you poor excuse for a gym master, because now they are releasing a…
Who carries stuff in their pockets? Well, just about all of us, I imagine. Sure, you might have some things that bounce around in your laptop bag, but there are certain items that you always have on your person. And, if you’ve been following the articles we have been highlighting from Everyday Carry, well, you probably have a few more things jangling around than you did before. If that’s you, then their latest roundup on pocket organizers just might be of interest.
Nomad watches are an interesting watch in the most genuine use of the word. Patrick and I looked at our first email from Nomad and the attached images we got, and Patrick’s first comment was that the shape of the watch was “interesting.”
Zelos has made a watch that looks equal parts jet engine and landmine and named it after an Eagle. The Eagle E-1A is an automatic behemoth that is sure to be noticed on the wrist of anyone with the arm-strength to wear it.
