TRIWA’s ‘Sort of Black’ Flips it Around

Posted on 17 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Sort-of-Black-Gold-Chrono_04

TRIWA (Transforming the Industry of Watches) is a Scandinavian watch company more aligned with the fashion of watches than the intricacies of the mechanics.  They sell in fashion boutiques and follow the fashion calendar, with two releases a year.  For the Spring collection, they have taken their existing Sort of Black Watch (all black with a bit of gold on the hands) and reversed the color scheme, producing a gold watch with a bit of black on the hands, in both a 3-hander and chronograph version.

Void-V03M-Automatic-12

Not too long ago, we brought you word of Void’s first automatic watch, the V03M (right here). At the end of that article, we mentioned we were working on getting in a review sample, and this is the day we deliver on that effort, with our hands-on review of the little guy. Continue Reading

Miró Watches, Hands On

Posted on 15 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

IMG_3571

Miró Watches is a relatively new brand, founded in 2012, bringing a clean, minimalist look to their watches.  Though the name is taken from a Spanish (Catalonian) Surrealist Artist, the design cues for the watch are pure Scandinavian, simple and functional.  Miró was kind enough to loan me a quartz watch in the Creme/Honey combination, but there are 5 different dial colors and 4 different strap options, so you have plenty of options.

Do you want an accurate watch?  Is a certified automatic too inaccurate and a quartz too, well, uninteresting?  How about an atomic clock.  Not a quartz watch that uses the atomic clock broadcasts, but an honest to goodness atomic clock that you can wear on your wrist?  Well Bathys has the Kickstarter project for you, the World’s 1st Atomic Wristwatch.

CT Scuderia Master Time Review

Posted on 11 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa

CT-Scuderia-Master-Time-09

Today, we’re welcoming another CT Scuderia model back to our pages, the Master Time. In our review of the Salt Flat Racer, I noted that the case, with it’s crown layout, evoked a stopwatch. The Master Time, by contrast, brings that association to the forefront, with the pushers flanking the crown up top, as well as a “lanyard loop” on the step of the crown. In some ways, it also puts me in mind of those early “trench” watches that were pocket watches with lugs soldered on so they could be put on a strap. Obviously, CT Scuderia has a much more polished offering for us than something with a strap hacked on to it. Continue Reading

Refined Hardware Robber Baron Watch Review

Posted on 07 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Refined-Hardware-Robber-Baron-02

The last time we took a look at a watch from Refined Hardware (here), I really grew to like their machine, or industrial, aesthetic. They’ve continued to build on that strength, and have released some additional models that are definitely cut from the same cloth. With the Robber Baron line, they’ve changed things around a bit, and have, well,  refined things a bit more, making for a compact piece. Continue Reading

Posted on 04 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

241-Speedmaster_Mark_II_327.10.43.50.01.001

45 years ago, man first walked on the moon.  And an Omega was there.  And Omega wants you to know that.  That year, they released the Speedmaster Mark II, featuring the same movement that was in the watch worn by the astronauts.  And now it is time for an update and reissue.  The new Speedmaster Mark II retains the overall look of the original, but also provides nice modern updates.

Benarus Sea Snake (v2) Review

Posted on 02 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Benarus-Sea-Snake-v2-18

Benarus is a brand I became familiar with early on in my career here at WWR, and we’ve covered a number of their pieces. I was almost two years ago that I first took a look at their Sea Snake diver (parts one, two) and today, we’re going to revisit the watch, as they’ve recently released a new version of the piece.  As the v1 is one of my personal watches, we’re also able to bring you some side-by-side photographs as well.
