The Zenith of Lightweight Chronographs

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.

TRIWA’s ‘Sort of Black’ Flips it Around

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.

Kickstart a Minimalist Chronograph

Talley & Twine wants to upgrade your style. They want you to buy a watch from the “World’s Best Dressed Watch Company.” Now, I am going to say that it is pretty unlikely that Talley & Twine is the world’s best dressed watch company. Maybe they are, but I have my doubts. Buying a watch from them will not put you on a list of 10 best dressed gentlemen. But the Worley Chronograph that is available now on Kickstarter is a pretty nice looking watch. I would hazard that it could possibly make you a better dressed, depening on what else you might have on your wrist.
