Introducing the Hager Aquamariner

Wow. If you are really into vintage-inspired watches, this is the time for you. Specifically, if you are in the original MilSubs (you know, just like that famous Rolex Submariner and the like), then this really is the time for you. Janis Trading recently made a huge splash with their NTH Subs (full review forthcoming), and now Hager comes along with their interpretation of things, with the Hager Aquamariner.

Spinnaker Watches: Hands-on

Spinnaker is a company with a large catalogue of watches. They approached us to offer a few for review, and we said yes.

Here’s how this part of the process works. Some enterprising soul will email us and offer a review, and we’ll talk amongst ourselves about all the things right with what we see, and all the things wrong with it, and then Patrick will say we pass on it. He’s often right. We set out to only review the best of the best, the things that appeal to us.

Rounding things out with Art Mécanique Watches

I have taken heart from the mix of watches that have been showing up as of late on the various crowd-funding sites. While there are still plenty of minimalistic three-handers populating the pages, there are others that certainly offer things we have not seen before, in terms of design elements. One of the latest to cross that threshold is Art Mécanique Watches.

Introducing the Steinhart OCEAN 1 Bronze

If you are in the market for a bronze watch these days, you are certainly spoiled for choice. The material has shown up across numerous brands, often with an eye towards what the eventual patina is going to make the watch look like. Now, I am not saying that the Steinhart OCEAN 1 Bronze won’t develop a patina (as it likely will). It’s just that, at first glance, it really seems to playing up a higher-end look, with the bronze (and the bezel insert) giving things more of the look of a gold watch.

Reader Reviews: Magrette Dual Time

Guess who’s back, back again. Yes, that’s right, it’s time for another reader review! Ok, sure, it has not been that long since we featured one but we really enjoy sharing what our readers are wearing, and what they think of the watches they are spending quality time with. Today, we have a review from Jose C of the Magrette Dual Time watch, the spiritual successor to the Magrette Regattare 2011. On with the show!

The CJR Airspeed Regulator

The CJR Airspeed Regulator watch launched on Kickstarter a short while ago, and so far, has raised over 93,000 US dollars. It’s powered by a Miyota 9015 movement. It’s got a really nice leather strap, sewn with cotton thread. I could tell you all these things, but none of that would tell you how cool a watch this is.
