AVI-8 Hawker Harrier II Banner

AVI-8 Hawker Harrier Hawker II

AVI-8 was nice enough to offer a AVI-8 Hawker Harrier II watch for a hands on review, and I was expecting to see it with the black dial, but instead I opened the watch and saw the green dial. For me, this is the perfect color for the watch, so it is a happy accident. That is not to say it does not look good in black, but the green suits is very well.

Watching the Web for March 28, 2015

Welcome to our regular weekly feature, Watching the Web, where Patrick and I point you toward watch related articles across the web, and toot our own horns by pointing out some of the more popular articles over the last week or so from WWR. With Baselworld recently concluded, there is a plethora of coverage of new models from the fair, and I am going to highlight some articles from A Blog To Watch, Worn and Wound, Gear Patrol and WristReview. From our own articles, we have Patrick’s review the Tempest Carbon watch and the Tissot Vintage.

The Griffin Emblem Automatic, Open Heart to Semi-Skeleton

There is an old saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I think this must be the motto of the Griffin Emblem Watch Company, since they are back with a second batch of watches on the crowdfunding site, Indiegogo. The Griffin Emblem Automatic is offered in three general flavors and several case options for a total of 10 watch configurations, and the designs are only slightly different than the previous campaign. There are three levels of skeletonization in the watches, a small open heart window for the balance wheel, a larger central open heart, and a semi-skeleton design.

Techne Dual Time 01

Techne Dual Time, Pilot Friendly

Techne is a brand that we have not focused on much recently, but both Patrick and I have an appreciation for what the brand is doing. They create attractive and affordable aviation inspired watches, with many of the watches tied to modern fighter planes. Though the Techne Dual Time is not tied to a specific plane this time around, it is pilot oriented with a day/date and a single hand GMT complication.
