If you are not already a member of Touch of Modern, you really should join up. It is a site that highlights cool designs, furnishings, clothes and toys, and offers them on sale for a few days. There is new stuff on the site every day, and the sales only last for a couple of days. We have highlighted a number of watch realted sales on the site, and I found three recent ones that I thought were worth mentioning. Tavannes Watch Company has three versions of their skeleton watch up for sale; Catorex has 18 Swiss watches and pocketwatches on the site; and Rapport of London is selling a variety of watch winders and display/storage cases.

If you have read the site for a while, you should be aware of TokyoFlash Japan, a watch maker that specialized in… alternative displays built into digital watches. We have reviewed a number of their watches to date, and they just reached out to us for a launch deal on the new TokyoFlash Japan Kisai Kaidoku Wood. Through around 7:00 Pacific on July 30, you can get this watch for the introductory price of $109 (I don’t know what it goes up to after that). Continue Reading

Just quick note here – I saw today over on Touch of Modern that they’ve got a sale going on a variety of Egard models, including the Passages which I wrote about here. They’re a young brand, but in the conversations I’ve had with them, they’re growing and adapting. You can see some of our hands-on reviews here (none of these show up in the sale, however).

This mornings, Touch of Modern (join here is you have not done so already) popped up four watches, three of which are former Kickstarter projects I have reviewed in the past. First up was a favorite I did not pull the trigger on, but am temped to do so now. The Cobre de Calibre is an automatic watch with a Miyota Calibre 9015, a textured ceramic dial and a sapphire crystal. The watch is on sale for $365 to $395, depending on the model, a little less that the Kickstarter campaign price. On offer are 5 models, including the no-date model and the red ricing stripe model. My take on the watches was posted here, and the sale page is here at ToM. Continue Reading

I’ve covered some Android USA watches in the past (here and here), but those were from before the whole smart watch segment really started to get some traction. Well, all the big new is the Android Wear, but that doesn’t mean that Android USA (not affiliated with Google) doesn’t have something in the segment. Continue Reading

Christopher Ward is a brand that we’ve been pleased to come across here at WWR. This British company offers a great combination of styling and affordability, with many of their lineup offering your choice of either a mechanical or quartz movement, whichever your budget might allow. Now, they’re making those prices even better on one of their collections. Continue Reading

If you’ve been thinking about picking up a new watch box, then Amazon’s Gold Box deal will likely be of interest to you. They’ve got a 5-slot Wolf Designs watch box on sale today. Normally it goes for $75, but you can snag it for only $49 (here), while their stock lasts.
Thanks to our pal Peter for the tip!

Summer is definitely drawing to a close – school buses are back on the road, the local pool is closed down, and temperatures are starting to dip down a bit more. Along with swapping out the rubber straps for leather, you might be looking to pick up a new piece to herald in the last quarter of the year. Continue Reading
