Lew & Huey Cerberus Prototype Review

Posted on 30 June 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Lew-Huey-Cerberus-03

We’re on a bit of a Lew & Huey streak here, coveringquite a few of their watches. We’ve also been fortunate to be in a unique position with the brand, being able to spend time with prototypes (and, eventually, the production version) of their watches. Given that, we’re able to give you a hands-on take on their latest project – the Lew & Huey Cerberus.

Posted on 29 June 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Bell-Ross-BR-01-Carbon

Often in our Historical Horology posts, we go delving back in to the history of a brand, or even of a specific model/lineup from a brand.  In today’s look at Bell & Ross, however, we’re going to stick a little closer to current day.

Hands-on Review: TRIWA Walter Lansen Chrono

Posted on 27 June 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Triwa-Walter-Lansen-Chrono-01

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a TRIWA watch review on our pages – the last one we looked at I deemed to be a perfect watch for summer, so I think it’s a bit fitting that we’ve got another one landing on the pages with summer waiting in the wings. Now, you might be tempted to think that the TRIWA Walter Lansen Chrono is part of the “Sort of Black” line (which Matt covered here), but it’s definitely not.

Purpose Driven Watches With Smarts

Posted on 26 June 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

BeFunky_Withings Active 03.jpg

A lot of smart watches I see try to be everything.  Email, facebook posts, texts, weather, and so on and so on.  They are not watches in a traditional sense, but rather wearable computers that display the time.  Today, I wanted to highlight two purpose driven watches that are more “connected” watches than a “do everything” wearable.  The HotBlack by Hoptroff.com and the Withings Activé are connected devices designed to do a single task, with the former connecting you to your favorite football (soccer) team and the latter tracking your daily fitness goals.  Interestingly, both watches are coming out of the UK.

Tokyo Flash Rogue 01

TokyoFlash has made a name for themselves creating digital watches that can be… a wee bit tough to read.  With one of their latest designs, the Kisai Rogue Touch Silicon, they have bucked their own trend a bit, and created a watch with two time zones that is actually readable at a glance, with a minimal amount of training.

Detroit Watch Co 1701 01

Like that Clint Eastwood/Chrysler Commercial from the 2012 Superbowl, Detroit is not done yet.  Shinola has done a good job in marketing their American Made roots with their quartz driven watches, and now the Detroit Watch Company is offering automatic watches made in the Motor City, though of foreign sourced parts.

The Lew & Huey Acionna, Take III

Posted on 23 June 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Lew Huey Acionna 11

If you think you have seen the Acionna by Lew & Huey on our pages already, you would be correct.  I wrote up the Kickstarter project for the site back when I was still a “friend of the site,”  and Patrick had a chance to spend a little time with a prototype.  Now that they are in production, the company sent over a pair of watches for a final hands-on review.
