RGM’s North Pointer GMT

Posted on 29 December 2008 by John Biggs


RGM is a watch company in Pennsylvania dedicated to recreating and preserving the watch know-how of the classic old American makers. Back in the 1880s, America’s watch industry was booming along with the growth of the railroads. A little savvy marketing and the rise of the automobile killed all the huge factories of Hamilton, Ohio and Elgin, Illinois but the dream is still alive.

Review: Buscum Ducis BD I

Posted on 08 December 2008 by John Biggs

Starting your own watch company is hard. Unlike, say, hiring a factory in Taiwan to make a bunch of MP3 players for you, creating a watch takes patience, an understanding of the history of horology, and a willingness to risk failure. Thankfully, Buscum Ducis’ Svan van Der Zande has all of these attributes.

$100 off the Serket Reef Diver 2.0

Posted on 08 December 2008 by John Biggs

Serket, formerly Scorpion, makes really nice dive watches. They’re not very flashy but they’re well-made and use real Swiss Movements inside an American-designed case. I’ve reviewed the 1.0 version of this watch and I really liked it.

Botta Uno Automatic: Dude, I think you lost something

Posted on 06 December 2008 by John Biggs


If you don’t really look, it’s a conservative, 42mm watch based on the workhorse automatic movement of Europe, the ETA 2824. But it has only one hand. No minutes, seconds, or day, just an hour hand. Look a little closer, and you’ll note that there are too many hash marks between the hours. The markings are five minute increments between the hours. Wait, what?

How to buy a watch

Posted on 02 December 2008 by John Biggs

I’m just full of helpful hints this week. This one comes after seeing a comment on my other site, WristWatchReview about the BR02, a 1000M diver with a fairly striking design. I liked it when I saw it but at $4,800 I could probably pass. But did you know you could get it for a mere $168?

How to polish a watch

Posted on 02 December 2008 by John Biggs


OK. I just suffered a fairly hair-raising situation with my new baby. Due to my own carelessness, I dinged the Jaeger a few times and wanted to polish them out. I got a few types of polish including one designed for delicate metals and tried to do it by hand. BAD IDEA. This created a fog of fine scratches that only I could really see but that drove me crazy nonetheless. So I tried Flitz by hand. More scratches. I was at wits end.
