Cars and watches seem to go together, don’t they (Morris Mini/Mini Cooper, Ferrari, Aston Martin, the whole Scuderia catalog…)? And one of the staff favorite brands, Christopher Ward is making yet another entry into this field. The Christopher Ward C70 D-Type is set to pay homage to the Le Mans winning Jaguar D-Type from the 1950s. In line with the previous car/watch pairings (the Ferrari and Aston), the watch is based on the C70 quartz chronograph and color matched to the car.
It was not all that long ago where we brought you word (and a side-by-side comparison) of the Benarus Sea Snake. As you may or may not know, Raven is…
If you have been reading our site for some time, you no doubt have caught on that I have been a fan of watches that manage to re-use materials. This most commonly takes the form of watches that house old movements brought back to life (ala Archer Watches or the Wrocket ), or perhaps materials being repurposed in the strap. When it comes to REC Watches, the recycled material actually shows up in the dial.
Tissot is a brand that we do not often write about here. It is not because we have a dislike for the brand – far from it. It’s just that, for whatever reason, they seem to fly under our radar, even with their combination of affordability, styling, and Swiss movement. That certainly changed with one of their latest, the Tissot Visodate Milanais.
Even though I’ve been covering watches for a decent amount of time now, it is still a pleasant surprise to come across a brand doing something unexpected, especially one that has been established for a bit. That is especially helpful when they decide to apply the appellation of Retro to a new model – at least there is some back catalog to derive from. That is precisely what we have here with the Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro 43.
When it comes to the watches from Triwa that we’ve taken a look at, they’ve generally been rather colorful – either in the case pattern (as seen here) or just in the overall aesthetic (as seen in this review). This time around, I want to focus some attention on a watch that’s a bit more monochromatic in its presentation – the Triwa Stirling Hvalen.
Christopher Ward is a brand that certainly needs no introduction to readers of this site. We have long been fans of their affordable styles, and have followed with interest their forays into some higher-end models, and variants of existing models. Today, we have one of those variants for you – the new Christopher Ward C11 Titanium Extreme 1000.
Today, we are going to take a venture into luxury watch territory that I do not often take us on here at WWR. Jacquet Droz is part of the Swatch Group portfolio, and they have been making some rather exquisite-looking watches, as well as some perfectly amazing novelties (just check out this Bird repeater). What’s most interesting to me about the Jacquet Droz Grande Second Quantieme Ivory Enamel is the dial material.
