Void-V03P-Featured

Introducing the Void V03P Petite

If you are recalling our last Void review (on the V03M) then you might be wondering the brand would be calling a watch lineup petite. Well, in comparison to the 36mm case that the V03M had, this new watch lineup is actually quite petite, while still keeping some bolder lines on the case. So, let’s jump in and see what makes the new Void V03P Petite.

Christopher Ward Trident Collection, A Four Pronged Update

Christopher Ward gets a fair bit of love here at WWR, mainly because they produce high quality, attractive watches at affordable price points. Now in their 10th year, the company is updating their line of dive watches, the Christopher Ward Trident Collection. The new collection offers four choices of movements, along with a number of other improvements and two case sizes.

Introducing The Boxer Watches Black Ice

We first brought you word of the new brand Boxer Watches back in 2012, when we did a hands-on review of the Zeus (LINK; verify it was a review). A few years on, and they are back with their second model. As with the Zeus, they have gone with a skeletonized movement, this time in a squared-off case. Let’s have a look at the Boxer Watches Black Ice.

Cobra de Calibre Chronograph el Grande, Another Pretty Face (and Caseback)

I first saw the Cobra de Calibre brand when the creator, John Lee, introduced his cushion cased first watch on Kickstarter. At the time, I really liked the style, but I had recently purchased something else, and didn’t have the cash. Then he brought out his bronze twin crown, which I liked a lot, but passed on because of another purchase. Now, he has a third watch on Kickstarter, the Cobra de Calibre Chronograph el Grande, and I will let you guess what is going through my head.

ManchesterWatchWorks Tatoskok, The Water Beast

We see a lot of dive watches here at WWR. We even have a special category for divers, making your search on our site easier. Plus, I am a diver myself, so we enjoy writing up attractive and sensible dive watches. And that is where this retro inspired new diver comes in. The MachesterWatchWorks Tatoskok automatic is the third shot at the crowdfunding market, and I think they hit a good mix of design, features and value.

Shinola-Black-Blizzard-19

The Shinola Black Blizzard Review

Titanium seems to be a popular material for watches these days. At least, that is, for watches that have been crossing my desk. As we saw with the Tempest Commodore, titanium helps cut down the weight of a watch while still offering strength and durability. Today, we’ll take a look at another one that leverages those attributes, the Shinola Black Blizzard.

Elliot Havok Timepieces, Kickstart a Little Havoc

Hubris is an interesting thing in the watch industry. You have to have it, or else you are never going to put out a watch. It takes an ego to try and sell a product that (hopefully) lots of people will wear on a daily basis, especially in an already crowded market. But too much hubris and you come off looking silly. By the response that Elliot Havok Timepieces is having with their Kickstarter launch, they seem to have struck the right chord.
