There are a variety of finishes and styles available for dials these days, and you can pretty easily find something that is to your liking. If you want something that is unique to the piece, but do not actually want to go the route of a custom watch, natural materials are your friend.

There are a couple of companies producing dive watches with cushion cases, and I have seen quite a few bronze divers of late, but there are not a lot of bronze divers with a cushion case. Well the Benarus Bronze Moray 42 is here to help fill that niche. Offered in two dial colors with two design options each, this limited production watch is a statement on your wrist.
Welcome back to the Watch Video Rewind series where we highlight some interesting videos that we’ve run across on the web that we think you might enjoy seeing.
Welcome back to our weekly installment, Watching the Web, where we have a quick look at some interesting watches and articles that have popped up across the World Wide Web over the last week (or so), as well as taking a second look at what some of our more popular articles this week. From the outside world, A Blog To Watch reviewed the first in-house watch out of Porsche Design and Worn & Wound spent some time with the Tempest Commodore Dive watch. Looking inward, this week’s highlights are the a field watch from Triwa and John Bigg’s take on the coming smartwatch paradigm shift.
