Christopher Ward C60 Chronograph 03

Christopher Ward C60 Trident Chronograph Pro 600, Now Available for Pre-Order

The diver’s chronograph is an interesting combination of features, and the Christopher Ward C60 Trident Chronograph Pro 600 is the latest entry, and the brand’s first, into that category. Now, I own a diving chrono (not from CW, another brand), and I like the look, but the complication is certainly not going to be useful for diving. With the screw down protectors for the pushers, it can’t be operated underwater, so it is a stylistic choice here. You want a diver as you swim deep into the paperwork at your desk, and you like the features of a chronograph. The usefulness of the complication aside, I do think it is a very attractive watch.

Cobra de Calibre Corrsfire 001

Cobra de Calibre Crossfire, I Told You to Back This Watch

I told you guys to back this project back in November. Well, good things come to thee who wait, because the Cobra de Calibre Crossfire, is currently back on Kickstarter, at a reduced price (and fully funded at this point). I have looked at a number of Cobra de Calibre watches, and keep saying “hey you should check this guy’s work out.” There great success stories where one project turned into two or three and then into a full blown brand, and I am hoping that John Lee will developed a cult following that funds all his projects.

Introducing the Limes Endurance II

For many of us (myself included), there is no denying the appeal of a cleanly designed diver. Now, you might argue that the Limes Endurance II is not truly a dive watch, as it only carries a 100m WR rating, and I would concede that point. It most certainly fits into the category as a tool watch, and the timing bezel gives it those hints of a diver

Sunday Rewind Reviews: Benarus Vintage Moray and Van Speyk Dutch Diver

This Sunday I am doing something a little different. Instead of showing off a few videos, I am going to do a pair of re-reviews, Rewind Reviews if you will, second looks at watches that we have featured here at the site. I have a pair of divers that Patrick reviewed the Benarus Vintage Moray and the Van Speyk Dutch Diver. I have had some time with both watches, and I like them both, though they are very different.

Tempest Viking V2 05

Snag a Deal of the Tempest Viking V2

Sales, sales, sales, that seems to be the mantra of the season (at least in the retail world), and we are happy to pass along these notifications to you, our dear reader, as long as they come from a brand we know and trust. And this is the case with the Tempest Viking V2, a serious dive watch with a 2,000 meter depth rating (yes, it is overkill) and a helium escape valve. For the holiday, Tempest is offering 10% off the Viking V2 if you use the coupon code “xmas2015” prior to check out.

Hands-on with the Van Speyk Dutch Diver

It was back in July that we first brought you word of a new Dutch brand, Van Speyk, and their inaugural watch. As I concluded in that writeup, the Van Speyk Dutch Diver had a thread running throughout it – familiarity with differentiation. That observation was all based off of what I was seeing in the photos. The question loomed, however – would that impression hold up after seeing the watch in the steel?
