Introducing the Martian Notifier

Posted on 27 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Let’s keep the smart watch ball rolling, shall we? Yesterday we saw a smart watch merged with an analog quartz piece, and today we’ve got the same – albeit one with a much smaller display. As a matter of fact, this isn’t the first time we’ve taken a look at Martian – you can see our review of their first entry right here. Their latest, though, has a much more refined look, and has a notification trick up your sleeve. Continue Reading

Introducing the Cogito Smart Watch

Posted on 26 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Love ‘em or leave ‘em, the smart watch category is one that is certainly not one that is going to be going away any time soon. While many of the devices that have been coming out as of late really do seem to be miniature versions of your phone (sometimes literally, as seen here). There is another type of watch in this genre, however, that skews more to the traditional end of things, and that’s what we have here from Cogito. Continue Reading

A Kickstart Flyer on a Flieger

Posted on 25 February 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

rebel 01

If you are in the market for a nice looking, sporty and inexpensive watch, the Rebel on Kickstarter (project page) may fit the bill. The specs are not overly impressive, though keep in mind that the watch is only 55 Pounds, which comes out to about $90 USD, including shipping. The watch is a mix of the classic Flieger A and B styles, with both the hour and minute markers of the B style, but the hours more prominent, as with the A. Continue Reading

Boschett Reef Ranger Review

Posted on 24 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Boschett-Reef-Ranger-10

Time and again, dive watches have proven to be one of the most popular design styles – and it’s not an allure I’m immune to. While I myself don’t go diving, there’s just something about having a watch that’s built to withstand those pressures (and the design language that comes along with it) that has an appeal. While many of the options on the market today are impressive (and massive) pieces, Boschett’s latest has gone in an different direction, creating one of the more compact modern divers I’ve spent time with.

Marvin’s Malton Military Cushion Review

Posted on 23 February 2014 by John Biggs

scaled-scaled-2758

I’ve been following Marvin for a while and I’ve been impressed with the understated styling and acceptable pricing of this brand. This piece, the Military Cushion, for example, retails for about $1,500 which is more than acceptable for a hand-made, Swiss watch. It uses a non-manufacture Sellita SW 200 movement (Sellita is the AMD of watch movements, with ETA being the Intel) and features a nice, solid steel case and “camo” strap.

Historical Horology: What The Presidents Wore

Posted on 23 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

LBJ Memovox Caseback

When it comes to political figures, it’s always interesting to figure out what exactly they’re wearing in a particular photograph. As of late, there have been some brands that are officially endorsed as being “the” president’s watch (as evidenced by this Jorg Gray). But what if you wanted to go back further, and see what, say, George Washington tracked the time with? Continue Reading
