Taking a Look at the MOTA SmartWatch G2

Posted on 29 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Mota-G2-01

Everywhere you look, smart watches are cropping up. The incoming Android-powered watches (and the long-rumored iWatch) of course take the lion’s share of the attention. While those high-tech devices are attention-grabbers, for sure, to focus only on them ignores a whole other slice of the smart watch segment. Today, we’ll be taking a look at one of those, the MOTA SmartWatch G2. 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

Posted on 27 August 2014 by John Biggs

You’re in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It’s crawling toward you… how do you train yourself to outrun it? I like to think you’d probably want a $400 Fenix 2 from Garmin.

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

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.

Rumba Time Brooklyn, Have I Got a Deal For You

Posted on 06 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Rumba Brooklyn 01 Why is it when someone wants to talk about an unbelievable deal, a swindle really, they talk about selling the Brooklyn Bridge?  What is it about that deal where anyone thinks that someone was gullible enough to think they were actually buying the bridge?  Well, I am not going to sell you a bridge, I am going to go after something else named Brooklyn, the Rumba Time Brooklyn watch.

Trintec Zulu-03, Flying High

Posted on 05 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Trintec Zulu 03 01

There are a whole lot of companies out there making modern aviation inspired watches. There is one company that has been doing it longer, and doing little else, and that is Trintec. I contacted them when I was reviewing their recent Kickstarter campaign, and they were nice enough to loan me one for their production watches for review, the Trintec Zulu-03. Continue Reading

Cognitime Classic, the Digital Analog Alternative

Posted on 31 July 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Cognitime Classic 01

One of the things I struggle with as a watch reviewer is how to discuss a watch that I don’t dislike, and there is nothing wrong with it, but it is just not for me.  However, it may be perfect for other readers of the site. After all, I do not represent every watch buyer, I probably don’t even represent the average watch buyer. Continue Reading
