Posted on 29 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

 

GoS_Midnight_Sun-1200

At least here in the northern hemisphere, summer is just a distant memory, as the fall dips into colder temperatures. To help counteract that (and ensure you always can see the sun), GoS has released their latest model, the Midnight Sun. Continue Reading

Wild Turkey Watch

Here in the States, we’ve got a little holiday going on known as Thanksgiving Day.  So, for those of you getting your turkey-induced food comas on, enjoy your day, and enjoy it responsibly (especially if that watch above in on your wrist).

Regardless of if you’re celebrating the day, I just want to say thanks to you, our readers, for sticking with us and giving us feedback on the articles and reviews we’re creating for you.  And, if you’ve never spoken up, consider this your invitation – start commenting on posts, our FB page, or even drop us an email to let us know your thoughts.

Precious Metals for Your Wrist

Posted on 27 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

You know what I’m thankful for, here the day before Thanksgiving?  Well, lots of things, actually, but one I want to focus on is watch-related.  I’m quite thankful our pal Matt Himmelstein scours the crowd-funded crowds, and picks out the interesting watches to bring to your attention.  Today, he’s got a very interesting silver (or gold) watch for your consideration.

Posted on 26 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

 

Ocean7-LM7-Ploprof (1)

So, remember back when I wrote about the original Omega PloProf (here) earlier this month?  If you do, you’ll recall that I mentioned our friends over at Ocean7 have a model inspired by the original, their LM-7 Professional PloProf Hardened Titanium Diver.  Today, we’ll be taking a look at their original version (they just introduced a two-tone bezel variant).

Historical Horology: Taking A Look At Omega

Posted on 24 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

Omega isn’t the oldest watch brand in existence today – but it is one of the older brands that we have with us today. When I write about Omega, I’m often looking to what they’re doing today (which is interesting). Or, if I’m looking to their past, it’s in conjunction with an older model a current one is referencing. Today, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a quick look at the history of the brand. Continue Reading

Watching The Web: On Break For November 23, 2013

Posted on 23 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

Sorry, folks – the week just got away from me here, and I did not have time to put a roundup together.  If you’re looking for that sort of a high-level summary today, you may want to check out aBlogtoWatch’s “Best From”, which just published yesterday, here.

We’ll see what shakes out for next week, if it makes sense to have one (or not) with the holiday weekend.  I can say we will have an interesting Historical Horology for you tomorrow, so be sure to stop on by for that.

Posted on 22 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

 

kisai_console_wood_led_watch_from_tokyoflash_japan_05

TokyoFlash has been experimenting with some different case materials as of late, and wood seems to be one of their current favorites. That meant it was only a matter of time before we saw one that was a mashup of ’70s scifi and decor. At least, that’s what I’m picking up from their latest, the Kisai Console Wood. Continue Reading
