Exclusive Review: The Filson Journeyman GMT

We first brought you word of the new Filson (by Shinola) watches in February. While they are, at their heart, Shinola watches, they have a different look and feel to them that switching to the Filson name allows (sort of how auto manufacturers go for different styles on the same basic platform across brands). My preferences being what they are, I found myself drawn to the GMT models being released, along with their tincloth straps. To the best of my knowledge, we are the first site able to bring you a hands-on review of the Filson Journeyman GMT

To The Stars: The Egard Passages Review

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?

Earnshaw 1805 Grand Calendar, for Date Night

When asked why he threw the watch out the window, the little boy answered, “I wanted to see time fly.” OK, it is an old, bad joke (and one of my dad’s favorites), but that sentiment is part of the reasoning why (at least in my mind) you buy a watch with an exposed fly wheel. The Thomas Earnshaw 1805 Grand Calendar is a pretty watch that isn’t going to break the bank, and you get to watch time fly, or at least wiggle back and forth.

Going Hands-On With The Tempest Carbon

Back in December, we brought you word of the latest offering from Tempest, the Tempest Carbon. In that writeup, I lamented the fact that our friends over at aBlogtoWatch were able to spend some time with the prototype. Well, supporting the saying that “good things come to those who wait”, we actually got to spend some time with the prototype ourselves. So, what is it like having the Tempest Carbon on the wrist

Hands-on With the Fossil Machine

You know who we have not had on our pages in some time? Fossil, that’s who. While they are ostensibly a more fashion-oriented brand, they do offer a large variety of styles at rather affordable price points. Today, we have a hands-on look at a watch they consider to be in their dressier collection, the Fossil Machine.

Introducing The Boxer Watches Black Ice

We first brought you word of the new brand Boxer Watches back in 2012, when we did a hands-on review of the Zeus (LINK; verify it was a review). A few years on, and they are back with their second model. As with the Zeus, they have gone with a skeletonized movement, this time in a squared-off case. Let’s have a look at the Boxer Watches Black Ice.
