Christopher Ward Trident Collection, A Four Pronged Update

Christopher Ward gets a fair bit of love here at WWR, mainly because they produce high quality, attractive watches at affordable price points. Now in their 10th year, the company is updating their line of dive watches, the Christopher Ward Trident Collection. The new collection offers four choices of movements, along with a number of other improvements and two case sizes.

The Shinola Black Blizzard Review

Titanium seems to be a popular material for watches these days. At least, that is, for watches that have been crossing my desk. As we saw with the Tempest Commodore, titanium helps cut down the weight of a watch while still offering strength and durability. Today, we’ll take a look at another one that leverages those attributes, the Shinola Black Blizzard.

CT Scuderia Scrambler, Take the Bullhead by the Horns

How do you create a brand identity in an industry as large and as old as watchmaking? Many brands have a go-to handset, some rely on logos, and yet others will use styling cues that carry over watch to watch. CT Scuderia is in that last camp, but they go further in their commitment that many others, with every watch in the line a bullhead style (though they do invert it for the Dashboard). The company was nice enough to lend me a second watch for a hands on review, the CT Scuderia Scrambler. The quartz chronograph is well made and pretty unique in the current marketplace.

Bremont ALT1-C /PW, Just Remember It As The Polished Stainless Classic

Bremont is one of those small, high end watch companies in Britain that is not very well known in the US. We have covered the brand a few times, and I highlighted the MBI/MBII a while back. New for November is the polished stainless steel version of their Classic Line, the Bremont ALT1-C /PW, joining the line that already sports a variety of colored dial versions and a rose gold case version.
