Writer on, and amateur collector of, watches of all types. Along with my writings here, you can find additional watch-related thoughts from me over on aBlogtoWatch. If you're on Twitter, you'll find me there as @ABTW_Patrick (for the watch stuff) and @pkansa (for everything else).

Reintroducing the M&Co PIE Brass Watch from Projects Watches

As should be no surprise to readers of our site, Projects Watches creates watches that are driven first and foremost by design. These are not the watches you’ll see in the local mall that many will dismiss as “fashion” watches. No, these are watches that pull designers in from other industries and give things an interesting look. Until recently, I was not aware that they started collaborating with M&Co – a design shop of some reknown – back in 2005. Drawing on that relationship, Projects Watches is reintroducing the M&Co PIE Brass Watch.

Spending Time with the Dietrich OT-3 Organic Time

It does not seem like it was all that long ago that spring was just, well, springing, and I was writing about the Dietrich Organic Time.

Does it hold up to my assumptions in the earlier article? Well, read on for our review of the Dietrich OT-3.

Reviewing the U8 Pro Smart Watch

There is no denying that smart watches are a very popular segment these days. We here at WWR (and over at ABTW) have kept a close eye on these products, as they do seem to be a harbinger of something coming – we are just not quite sure what, as of yet. While most of the attention has gone to higher-end smart watches (say, $300+), I think that it’s worth checking out what the lower end has to offer. With that, we have a review of the U8 Pro Smart Watch.
