The Christopher Ward C9 Harrison 5 Day Automatic Goes In-House

Posted on 07 July 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Christopher Ward C9 01Christopher Ward is a watchmaker that gets a fair bit of space on our pages.  Not because they pay us, or advertise on the site, but because they make really nice watches and sells them at affordable price points.  I have one, a friend of mine has one, and I am pretty sure Patrick has one.  But all of these have someone else’s watch movement ticking away beneath the attractive design.  Well, CW just changed the equation.  The C9 Harrison 5 Day Automatic houses the brand’s first in-house movement, boasting a (you guessed it) 5 day power reserve.

Posted on 30 June 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Lew-Huey-Cerberus-03

We’re on a bit of a Lew & Huey streak here, coveringquite a few of their watches. We’ve also been fortunate to be in a unique position with the brand, being able to spend time with prototypes (and, eventually, the production version) of their watches. Given that, we’re able to give you a hands-on take on their latest project – the Lew & Huey Cerberus.

Purpose Driven Watches With Smarts

Posted on 26 June 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

BeFunky_Withings Active 03.jpg

A lot of smart watches I see try to be everything.  Email, facebook posts, texts, weather, and so on and so on.  They are not watches in a traditional sense, but rather wearable computers that display the time.  Today, I wanted to highlight two purpose driven watches that are more “connected” watches than a “do everything” wearable.  The HotBlack by Hoptroff.com and the Withings Activé are connected devices designed to do a single task, with the former connecting you to your favorite football (soccer) team and the latter tracking your daily fitness goals.  Interestingly, both watches are coming out of the UK.

A Dive Watch for the Office

Posted on 29 May 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Christopher Ward C65 01

Both Patrick and I are fans of Christopher Ward.  And we both like dive watches.  But as a diver, I see the days of needing a dive watch as long gone.  But the ruggedness of a dive watch, that is something which should stick around.  And if you take that ruggedness, and tone it down so it works as a true business watch, then you have a nice product for the real world.  Which brings me to the Christopher Ward C65 Trident Classic, available as a pre-order right now.

Christopher Ward Slims Down

Posted on 13 May 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Christopher Ward C5 Slimline 03

Christopher Ward is a name that is well known to the site.  My favorite watch that I own is a C11, I am pretty sure Patrick has at least one CW, and a friend of mine recently picked up a dress quartz from the company.  With direct sales, quality products, and a broad design appeal, they are a company that I can easy recommend to anyone looking for a watch.  Right now, they are accepting pre-orders for the C5 Malvern Slimline, due to ship at the end of June.

Magrette Leoncino, A Nod to the Past

Posted on 05 May 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Magrette Leoncino 1

Magrette is offering fans a chance to order a new watch from them, the Leoncino (Little Lion), an automatic that takes its design cues from the styles of the 60s.  The case is a squared off cushion style, with lugs that taper from the edges of the case to the strap.  The finish is polished stainless steel (brushed on the sides), perfect to go with bright chrome fenders.  The dial, however, that is pure Magrette DNA with a clean modern look.

Hager-Professional-01

We recently got word from our friends over at Hager about their newest watches in the pipeline, along with some pre-order discounts that are available.  If you recall, we took a look at their crowd-funded project about a year ago.  That project didn’t end up hitting the funding levels, but Hager is back at it with production of affordable watches with clean style and solid movements here in the US of A.

Christoper Ward Wants You To See Red

Posted on 17 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Christoper-Ward-C7-Italian-Red-05

Ok, so the trend I started to predict last week (about a string of watches that prominently featured different date displays) didn’t hold true, but I do have a continuity for you – today we’re going to talk about another new model from Christoper Ward. This time, we’re going to have a look at their latest version of the C7 Chronometer, this time around in Italian Racing Red. Continue Reading
