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

Looking For A French Connection – The G.Gagnebin & Cie Karaktero Review

Posted on 27 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

 

G-Gagnebin-Karaktero-06

While I’ve had a few languages represented by the watches that cross my desk, I’ve never had one with French on it come in for a closer look. When you add in the fact that watches with brown dials are far from common, then you know we are in for a rather rare treat in todays review of the G.Gagnebin & Cie Karaktero. Continue Reading

JeanRichard Aquascope Hokusai Review

Posted on 22 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

JeanRichard-Aquascope-Hokusai-02

A year ago, I couldn’t have told you one thing about the JeanRichard brand. My, how times have changed. In that intervening period, I’ve reviewed their Aeroscope (link) and Terrascope (link), which is how I really came to appreciate their case construction and styling. If you couldn’t tell by the names, those watches were air and land oriented. That leaves just one family in the lineup, their divers. And for that, we’ve got something pretty special – the JeanRichard Aquascope Hokusai. Continue Reading

Aegaon Brings Big Watches From Estonia

Posted on 21 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Ageaon-05

We’ve featured a variety of crowd-funded watch projects on here, with a good bit of diversity in the products being presented. One thing that hasn’t been as diverse are the countries these watches are coming out from. It’s in that light (and my own family background) that I found myself rather interested to see a watch coming from Estonia – Aegaon. 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

Touch of Modern Deals on Watches (and Accessories)

Posted on 05 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Tavannes 01

If you are not already a member of Touch of Modern, you really should join up.  It is a site that highlights cool designs, furnishings, clothes and toys, and offers them on sale for a few days.  There is new stuff on the site every day, and the sales only last for a couple of days.  We have highlighted a number of watch realted sales on the site, and I found three recent ones that I thought were worth mentioning.  Tavannes Watch Company has three versions of their skeleton watch up for sale; Catorex has 18 Swiss watches and pocketwatches on the site; and Rapport of London is selling a variety of watch winders and display/storage cases.

Diving In With The Mühle-Glashütte Kampfschwimmer

Posted on 18 July 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Muehle-Glashuette_Kampfschwimmer_M1-28-92-NB

Time and again, dive watches prove themselves to be a popular style of watch, as do military watches. While there are some brands that can tie themselves at some point in their heritage to a military diving unit, finding a current production watch that’s in use by a naval unit is a decidedly rarer thing. That is, until the Mühle-Glashütte Kampfschwimmer became available. Continue Reading
