Why the details matter

When it comes to watches, we have a tendency to pore over, even obsess, about the details. Sure, at some higher level we can have some sort of a gut reaction to a watch (positive or negative), but as we spend some time with it, we find ourselves down in the details of the watch. For instance, handset sizing, or the type and style of indices on the dial. You know where else the details matter? In your own personal style.

Introducing the Astor + Banks Pilomatic

Checking out new watches is almost always a fun proposition. And when the maker of said watches is local? Well, all the better, because then you get to have a conversation with the guy behind the brand, as well as have a peek around the workshop, and maybe see something new that’s in the works. Well, it’s been awhile since I have been over to Astor+Banks, so I cannot say that I was privy to what was being cooked up. That’s ok, because we still have all the details for you on the recently announced Astor+Banks Pilomatic.

Watching the Web for August 20, 2016

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 crowd-funded smart watch, the sale of Glycine, a crazy dial color from Armida, and some votes for the ugliest watches out there. From our own pages, we have our review of the new NTH Subs, Vario Straps, and the latest from Brew Watch.

Introducing the Scuro Dive Watch

Titanium. Dive Watch. Kickstarter. With those three descriptors, it would seem that we have all the makings for one crazy popular watch. And, judging by the results of the funding project (which finished at 115% of their goal), the popularity has been proven out. While we did not have access to fully-functional versions of the watches the brand was flogging, we did have some pre-production samples in. While funding has closed, we’re certain that these will be hitting some form of retail sales, so read on to see if you’ll be wanting to pick up a titanium Scuro dive watch.
