Bulova Goes For The Gold with the Joseph Bulova Collection First Edition

When it comes to watches from Bulova, we tend to see them as being nicely designed pieces, mostly quartz driven and affordable. In other words, a good watch, but not necessarily something that you take notice of. Of course, if that’s the thinking, then you are ignoring things like their crazy-accurate chonograph (ABTW LINK). These days, you would also be ignoring the new direction they attempting to take things in, which is underscored by the Joseph Bulova Collection First Edition 24-Karat Gold watch.

Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Squelette, a Modern Skeleton

The concept of a skeleton watches intrigues me, but the execution (at least for affordable ones) usually leaves underwhelmed. I love the way that the mechanical movements are exposed, but they end up visually very busy, and they tend to be overly ornate. When Tissot offered to loan me the Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Squelette for a review, I jumped at the opportunity. Here was a watch that looked modern and readable, while still showing off the mechanical movement that makes a skeleton interesting. Unbeknownst to me, Patrick also decided to review this watch, albeit for A Blog To Watch. He didn’t get it hands on, but his impression was that the watch lacked some of the showmanship that you see on really high end skeleton watches, but still had a design that was readable while showing off the important parts.

Introducing the Void V03P Petite

If you are recalling our last Void review (on the V03M) then you might be wondering the brand would be calling a watch lineup petite. Well, in comparison to the 36mm case that the V03M had, this new watch lineup is actually quite petite, while still keeping some bolder lines on the case. So, let’s jump in and see what makes the new Void V03P Petite.
