Time Piece: A Beautiful Movie On Swiss Watchmaking

Posted on 30 November 2011 by John Biggs

Time Piece – Switzerland from HODINKEE on Vimeo.

It’s not hard to make watchmaking look good but this film takes the cake. It’s by Kat Mansoor and features two master watchmakers, Vianney Halter and Philippe Dufour.

Another Look At Tsovet

Posted on 30 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

In yesterday’s post, I brought another American brand (Tsovet) to your attention with one of their dressier offerings.  Today, I’d like to take a look at something that I’d consider as more of an “every day” sort of a watch.

So, This Is An American Brand?

Posted on 29 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Apparently, it is!  The brand in question is Tsovet – and they’re based out of California (established in 2008).  I’ll admit – based purely on the name, I simply assumed it was a Russian (or Soviet-inspired) brand, and simply never took a closer look.  The other day, though, curiousity got the best of me, and I began poking around their collection (and history).

Xetum is Offering Up A Free Strap With Purchase

Posted on 28 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Just had an interesting email cross my inbox that I thought I’d share out.  If you purchase a watch today (the 28th) or tomorrow (the 29th) directly from Xetum Automatic Watches, they’ll throw in a free leather strap for you to have as a spare.  All you need to do is forward your order confirmation email to service@xetum.com, letting them know what color strap you want.

Pretty good deal if you were thinking about getting a watch from them, if you ask me.

WristWatchReview Is Seven Years Old

Posted on 28 November 2011 by John Biggs

I was just poking around when I noticed that WWR was born in June, 2006 and, having missed the big day, I thought I’d celebrate now.

It’s been a long couple of years, many of them dry and desiccated thanks to my many intervening gigs including EIC of Gizmodo and now TechCrunch. But I founded this site to learn more about watches and now, it seems, that I’ve gotten my money’s worth. I’ve written nearly a thousand posts on this site and also written 100,000 words on watches for other sources. I’ve also recently started working with Ariel Adams and we’re already at episode 86 of the Hourtime Show. Pretty nuts.

A Resurrected Diver

Posted on 28 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

A few days ago, I brought to your attention what seems to be a good deal on an solid watch.  Today, we’re going to take a look at another deal I came across – but I’m not so sure it’s as good as it seems.

Orient Opens Up

Posted on 27 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

At least, they have with a few of their automatic models showing an open dial.  For today, we’ll take a closer look at their Esteem (FDB08005W) model.  While I’ve not experienced an Orient watch first hand, they seem to have a good reputation – and as such, worth taking a closer look.

Seiko’s Homage to the Fifty Fathoms?

Posted on 26 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

If you didn’t give the pictures a closer look, you might simply think that we’ve got another Seiko 5 Series diver with nothing much of  interest to it – and that would be understandable.  However, this one has something quite interesting on offer – that bezel isn’t just painted, it’s domed!
