Thomas Earnshaw Meteorite Watch Review

There are a variety of finishes and styles available for dials these days, and you can pretty easily find something that is to your liking. If you want something that is unique to the piece, but do not actually want to go the route of a custom watch, natural materials are your friend. This often takes the form of colorful stones (think marble) or even semi-precious stones. For something a bit more “out of this world”, you might opt for something like the Thomas Earnshaw Meteorite.

Benarus Bronze Moray 42, Go Big, Go Deep

There are a couple of companies producing dive watches with cushion cases, and I have seen quite a few bronze divers of late, but there are not a lot of bronze divers with a cushion case. Well the Benarus Bronze Moray 42 is here to help fill that niche. Offered in two dial colors with two design options each, this limited production watch is a statement on your wrist.

Deep Blue Divers on Touch of Modern

We like to feature Touch of Modern sales here on WWR, for good reasons. They often have interesting timepieces at pretty decent discounts. The site does require you to sign up in order to buy, so if you have not done so already, you can join here. Right now on the site, they are featuring two interesting watch sales, one on a range of divers from Deep Blue, and the other on high end automatics from Azimuth.

Azimuth Watches on Touch of Modern

A new watch sale popped up on Touch of Modern for Azimuth Watches. The site has three distinct and different designs for this Swiss watchmaker that does things… a little differently. Touch of Modern is a member-only sales site, so if you are not already a member, you can sign up through this link.

Introducing the Breitling Transocean 38

Breitling is very likely a brand that needs no introduction for most of us. While I can’t say I’m intimately familiar with all of the lineup, I have a passing knowledge of the brand. And it has stayed passing, because I have not found watches in their lineup that have appealed to be previously. While I appreciate the aviation heritage, the dials have often felt too cluttered for a landlubber like me. That is, until I came across the Breitling Transocean 38.

Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase, One for the ladies

For whatever reason (maybe it is because Patrick, John and I are all guys?) we don’t cover a lot of women’s watches here on WWR. For my part, I see a fair number of watches that would qualify as unisex, and most of the women I know (including my wife) tend prefer larger watches, not 50mm big, but at least around 40mm. But if you want something smaller, and with some high end materials (and a high end price tag), then the Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase might be the ticket (Christmas is just around the corner…).
