The GoS Bifrost Dresses Up

Posted on 28 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

GoS-Bifrost-Isbla-02

I have long been a fan of the creations coming from Gustafsson and Sjögren (aka GoS) Watches, with the inclusion of damascus-process steel. They pair the amazing patterns they fold into the steel with treatments that introduce colors evocative of different scenes, to great effect. While many dress watches tend to go for a look that will not attract undue attention, the GoS Bifrost instead has a stunning dial that invites commentary. Continue Reading

Christopher Ward C70 3527 GT Chronometer, How do you upcycle a Ferrari?

Posted on 20 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

C70 3527 GT Chronometer 01

Not many of us are going to be able to afford a truly limited edition car, let alone one that is as steeped in racing history as a Ferrari GTO.  After all, one did sell at auction for the princely sum of $52,000,000.  But what if you could own a piece of one?  A small sliver, but a piece none the less?  That is what Christoper Ward is offering with the C70 3527 GT Chronometer, a bit of the metal from one of these cars built into the watch.

The Frederique Constant Healey Tribute

Posted on 13 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Frederique-Constant-Healy-24H-04

As we’ve written on these pages before, the Venn diagram overlap between watch enthusiasts and car enthusiasts is not small, by any means. Mix in a specific brand, and it might limit things some, but for those the brand meshes with, it’ll be right up their alley. So, is the Frederique Constant Healey GMT 24H for you? Continue Reading

Ritot Projection Watch, Too Big to Ignore

Posted on 12 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Ritot 03

I view a lot of crowd funded projects, and have backed a couple of watch projects myself, but every once in awhile a project just blows up on a crowd funding site, and that is what has happened to the Ritot Projection watch on Indiegog0.  With the project slated to end funding on August 21, the watch project has already garnered over $750,000 in pledges against a goal of $50,000.  And it is a very cool concept.  I just wonder if it will ever make it past the point of being a concept.

Projects Watches Twirl, Get Your Floating Hands Here

Posted on 11 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Project Watch Twirl 01

Projects Watches is an interesting brand, putting out low cost quartz watches driven not be fashion, but by design aesthetic.  We have covered them on our pages before, and recently they reached out to us for a new watch they are debuting, the Projects Watches Twirl.  The brand’s tag line for the watch is “a new interpretation of time,” but I see it more as a unique but still readable variation on the standard 2-hander.

Introducing the Magrette Dual Time – Double the Time, Double the Crowns

Posted on 07 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Magrette-Dual-Time-08

If you’ve been reading here for any amount of time, you know I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for New Zealand brand Magrette. Most of this stems from the fact that the Regattare 2011 was the first automatic I ever had. As of late, though, it’s of course influenced by the tremendous value I feel you get your for money. You may also realize that I love a good GMT complication. While this new watch doesn’t quite hit that mark, the Magrette Dual Time has a fun trick up it’s sleeve. Continue Reading

Introducing the Smith and Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch

Posted on 04 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Smith-Bradley-Ambush-05

Ok, so that last Kickstarter project I put up was a bit of a last minute affair (that’s what we get for having me cover these instead of Matt, eh?), so I’m making amends this time around. We’re giving you plenty of advance notice for the latest US-built watch on Kickstarter, the Smith and Bradley Ambush. Continue Reading

Posted on 30 July 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Tokyoflash Kisai Kaidoku Wood 03

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).
