Mother’s Day is coming up, and as a service to those gift challenged male readers out there, I though I would highlight a few watches that you may want to get for the woman (or women) in your lives. I am mainly going to focus on watches that we have reviewed relatively recently, though there are a few extras tossed in here. So without further ado, here is out Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
The watches created by Uniform Wares have been interesting beasts. They create watches that are very clean, both in terms of the styling executed, as well as the lack of branding and text on the dial. While prior watches from the brand have been on the more casual end of the spectrum, they have now introduced a much dressier creation. Let’s take a closer look at the Uniform Wares C40.
I am a fan of Touch of Modern, and have bought a number of items for myself and my house through the site, including a watch back before I started wring for WWR. The site, as I have mentioned here previously, is a members only sale site (join here if you are not a member) specializing in modern goods that skew toward a male audience. Sales are limited time, and frequently include watches. Right now, there are several watch deals on Touch of Modern, including Cobra de Calibre, Vintage Rolexes, and watches from Jean Marcel, Ballast, and Alessandro Baldieri.
Last month was the annual watch show known as Baselworld. In the run up to the show, we had a lot of press releases coming in on things that were to be announced. Then of course as the show got underway, there was another tidal wave of information. This meant that there was a watch I had intended to write about that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle. While Baselworld is now behind us, I think its still worthwhile for us to take a look at the Savoy Epic Vault.
Today, we have a writeup of a watch that I have patiently bided my time to have come in. Back in November of 2013, I first wrote about the Egard Passages over on aBlogtoWatch. As I had already established a relationship with the brand, I figured we would be seeing one in fairly quickly after that. Well, circumstances are what they are, and its a year and a half later. So, was it worth the wait to spend some time with the official watch of William Shatner, the Egard Passages?
British company Time Factors has a variety of interesting watches, many in smaller runs, and certainly with designs that are not found quite anywhere else. While the company has already been stewarding the Sewills name (more on that later), they have decided to introduce a new watch bearing that name. Over the past two years, they have been working to pull everything together to create the Sewills Ferreira.
Watches that allow me to see the time in different places – whether it be via a GMT complication or a true world-time function – have been my fascination of late. I could easily argue that I do not really need any complications after a seconds hand and a date display, but those ancillary time zones appeal to me, even though I do not find myself traveling as much these days as I used to. I have also not made any secret of my thoughts that most of the Breitling collection is simply too busy for a non-pilot for myself. There have been a few models that break that mold, and the new Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT seems to be in that camp.
Back in January, I previewed Christopher Ward’s update to their Trident line of watches. For the automatics, the update included newer, longer lasting lume and a ceramic bezel, as well as an increased depth rating. At the time, I wanted to see if I could get a watch for a hands on review. Well, the brand obliged and I opened the box of a Christopher Ward C60 Trident GMT with a ceramic bezel in green just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, luck of the Irish indeed.
