I don’t really care for smartwatches. The ones that most interest me, thus far at least, have been ones like the Withings or Hoptroff that integrate a smartwatch feature into an analog watch. Well, the LG G Watch flipped that technique, taking the look of an analog watch and integrating it into a full blown smartwatch. It is, in my opinion, the best looking smartwatch out there.
This week, we’ve got another look at some Every Day Carry components, this time around from an aspiring PhD student. There’s a great set of items she’s carrying, including a rather nice Bulova Accutron.
Welcome to the HourTime show, the best 30 minute (+/-) hour podcast on the web. This week it’s all about Amish watches, Movado, and the Pocket Touch. MUSEUM QUALITY WATCH!…
If there is one complication (or class of complication) that I have become an ardent fan of, it is the world timer. While this often takes the form of a secondary hand to track another time zone, this can also take the shape of a cities disc that rotates around (as with this Baume & Mercier Capeland), or even a second time register. When we have a secondary time register, this is often synchronized to the main time display, as on this Techne. With the Ritmo Mundo Corinthian World Time, that second register can actually be independently set.
When it comes to watches that offer a tremendous value, the catalog coming from Christopher Ward has been offering a lovely variety of watches, with various price points on tap for all budgets. Lately, they have expanded the range into something more approaching luxury territory, and the brand has also expanded to have some of their own movements. This has been most prevalent by their Johannes Jahnke’s designs, of which we now have a third iteration in the form of the Christopher Ward Jumping Hour Mark III.
Who doesn’t like a little glow in their lives? I think that may be what Ziiiro is hoping for with the release of the Metalic version of the Ziiiro Eclipse. The updated version offers one completely new color and new stainless mesh straps on their two hand watch which uses a ring of lume to illuminate the time, and a bit of your night life.
