Introducing the Astor + Banks Pilomatic

Checking out new watches is almost always a fun proposition. And when the maker of said watches is local? Well, all the better, because then you get to have a conversation with the guy behind the brand, as well as have a peek around the workshop, and maybe see something new that’s in the works. Well, it’s been awhile since I have been over to Astor+Banks, so I cannot say that I was privy to what was being cooked up. That’s ok, because we still have all the details for you on the recently announced Astor+Banks Pilomatic.

Introducing the Scuro Dive Watch

Titanium. Dive Watch. Kickstarter. With those three descriptors, it would seem that we have all the makings for one crazy popular watch. And, judging by the results of the funding project (which finished at 115% of their goal), the popularity has been proven out. While we did not have access to fully-functional versions of the watches the brand was flogging, we did have some pre-production samples in. While funding has closed, we’re certain that these will be hitting some form of retail sales, so read on to see if you’ll be wanting to pick up a titanium Scuro dive watch.

Introducing the Tissot Le Locle Automatic Regulateur

When it comes to truly old school designs, I must admit that I am a fan of the regulator watch. While it was originally used for timing and setting other watches back in the day, I think that it still has a purpose these days. While there are scenarios where you might need to be mindful of the hour of the day, we generally have a good feel for that. More commonly, it seems that where we are within an hour is the more critical element, and that is where a regulator shines. With that setup, let’s have a look at the newly launched Tissot Le Locle Automatic Regulateur.
