G-Gerlach-Orzel-85A-Featured

Soaring With the G. Gerlach Orzel 85A

We are almost at the two year mark since we first brought you word (and did our first hands-on review) of a watch from G. Gerlach (the Otago). We of course have written about the brand since, but have not had a piece in for review since then. Today we’re back with another model that honors a famous Polish ship, the G. Gerlach Orzel 85A.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is coming up, and as a service to those gift challenged male readers out there, I though I would highlight a few watches that you may want to get for the woman (or women) in your lives. I am mainly going to focus on watches that we have reviewed relatively recently, though there are a few extras tossed in here. So without further ado, here is out Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

Swatch Sistem 51 008

Swatch Sistem51 Update, Something for Everyone

When Swatch debuted the Sistem51 automatic, I was excited about the prospect of a very affordable Swiss made automatic, but I was not all that excited by the design choices. The original four designs definitely showed the Swatch DNA, but they were not designs I would wear, other than as a novelty. With the Swatch Sistem51 update released earlier this year, there are 5 new watches in the family, really expanding the appeal.

Watching the Web for April 11, 2015

Thanks for taking the time to check out our weekly installment, Watching the Web, where we point you toward some interesting watches and articles that have popped up over the last week (or so), and take a second look at what were our more popular pages. Today, I am going to highlight the Roger Dubuis Excaliber Tourbillon from ABTW, the Time Bum’s review of the Prometheus Piranha, and Tempus Fugit’s lunch with the Michael Happ√© from Gavox. From our site, we have the Ventus Caspian on Kickstarter, the AVI-8 Hawker Harrier II, and The Christopher Ward C7 Rapide Chronometer.

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.

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.
