Everything old is new again – the B&R Vintage Collection

Posted on 31 August 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Bell & Ross has come out with a new line they’ve dubbed their Vintage Collection.  As with all of their watches, they are heavily-influenced and informed by aviation and the delightful (from a style perspective) analog gauges that can be found in old planes.

Of this collection (which is comprised of the Original, Heritage, and Officer models), I’m most drawn to the Heritage pieces – there’s just something about B&R’s use of black and tan in the color combinations that draws me in. Continue Reading

Lucky Number Seven – a Harry Winston Opus

Posted on 30 August 2011 by Patrick Kansa

If you ask me to choose a number between one and ten, I’m invariably going to choose seven.  And, while perusing Harry Winston’s Opus page, I was drawn to model number seven.  I really do suggest you go to their page (after you’re done reading this article, of course!) and view the larger image they have available – it really is quite a stunning watch. And in some ways, I was surprised that I was drawn to the watch. Continue Reading

Here’s one way to commemorate the 2012 Olympics

Posted on 29 August 2011 by Patrick Kansa

It wouldn’t be a world sporting event without Omega being involved.  To that end, they’ve produced a limited-edition Seamaster.   This watch is being limited to 1,948 pieces, as 1948 is the last time that Omega timed the Olympics in London.  Also of importance is the fact that 1948 is when the Seamaster was originally introduced.  There are two flavors of the watch Continue Reading

Another digital suntimer – the Casio FTW100D-7V

Posted on 28 August 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Since this is the third post I’m writing in a week’s time on watches that feature sunset times on it, I think it’s safe to say that this is a category my interest is growing in.  The Forester series model offers an alternative to the G-shock line, but still offers many of the same functions and features.

Think watches today are too “loud”? Try the Mutewatch

Posted on 27 August 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Today I ran across an interesting digital watch that has touch controls – the Mutewatch.  Simply to look at it, you might think someone was wearing an oddly-stylized silicone wristband for some cause or another.  However, when you touch the face of the watch, it springs to life.

Posted on 26 August 2011 by John Biggs

We’ve been talking about Cadence for a while now and I got the chance to sit down with Vanya Buvac, founder of the company watches and creator of some nice, inexpensive timepieces (including the dirty, dirty 4:20 watch).

Shooting the breeze with the Artya “Son of a Gun”

Posted on 25 August 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Artya is introducing a line of firearm-inspired pieces with their first, the Son of a Gun. I’ve got to say, it’s not something I’d necessarily look to strap on my wrist, but I understand the appeal.  Just don’t try to wear it when going through security!
