Detroit Watch Co Ponchartrain 02

Detroit Watch Company 1701 Ponchartrain and L’Horloge, Now in Fun Size

I don’t get to wear my 1701 from Detroit Watch Company, my wife stole it from me. Well, steal is a tough term. I really like the styling of the watch, but she isn’t into watches the same way I am, and she rarely comments on what I wear, let alone take an interest in one. That changed with this watch. So with domestic tranquility in mind, I allowed her to permanently borrow the watch. She is tall (almost 6 feet) and has always liked large watches, so this model worked for her. But if you are not into the look of a 44mm case that stands proud at 13.5mm, You now have options. The Detroit Company 1701 Ponchartrain and L’Horloge models are available for pre-order in 39 mm x 11-12 mm cases.

James McCabe Belfast Review

The last time we took a look at the James McCabe catalog, I found the Lurgan to be a bit of a mixed bag, but the Master was definitely more up my alley. When taking a look at what they might have interesting for a review, then, it was not much of a surprise that the James McCabe Belfast grabbed by attention. It has some similarities to the aforementioned Master, but does take things in a slightly different direction. So, without further ado, lets take a closer look at the James McCabe Belfast.
