The Zenith of Lightweight Chronographs

Posted on 24 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

10_2260_400_69_R573

There is a term for cyclist that applies to those of us who ride that are obsessed with getting a bike as light as it can get.  They are called weight weenies.  Well, for you weight weenies out there, meet your watch.  Zenith is releasing a limited run of their El Primero Chronograph that tips the scales at a mere 15.9 grams.  That is a bit over 1/2 an ounce, or to put it in another context, about 3 seedless grapes.

Magrette-Moana-Pacific-Professional-24

Earnshaw Longcase Hands On Review

Posted on 21 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

P1030164

I have long been fascinated with skeletonized watches.  Apart from the sweep of the second hand, there is not a lot to indicate that a watch is an automatic, especially if it is on your wrist and the caseback is not in view.  With a skeleton, the guts are on display with the balance wheel, at the very least, ticking away the time.  The Earnshaw Longcase brings a skeletonized automatic down to an attractive price point, with the list at $640 ($600 for stainless), but the street price can be significantly lower.

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.

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
