Welcome back to our weekly installment, where we have a quick look at some interesting watches and articles that have popped up over the last week, as well as taking a second look at what some of our more popular articles this week were. Read on for coverage on a tour of the Cartier Tank factory, ten things about Rolex you should know, a new Kickstarter project from a familiar company, and one of the latest dive watches I’ve reviewed from an independent brand.

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

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.

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. Continue Reading

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.

Omega isn’t the oldest watch brand in existence today – but it is one of the older brands that we have with us today.

Today, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a quick look at the history of the brand. Continue Reading

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.

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
