Introducing the moVas GMT III Diver

Dive watches. Who likes ’em? Well, just about everybody. How do you make a tool watch like a diver more useful? Via complications, of course. One of my personal favorites is the GMT, and that is what you get (as well as the date) with the just announced moVas GMT III Diver. Oh, you also get a somewhat quirky shape for a dive watch all in the bundle.

Hands-on with the Filson Dutch Harbor

Back in March, we brought you word of the newest watch from the Filson and Shinola collaboration, the Filson Dutch Harbor. In that overview, I felt the watch was a slick take on a dive watch. How does that impression hold up now that I have spent some time with the Filson Dutch Harbor on the wrist? Let’s dive in and have a look.

Introducing the Filson Dutch Harbor

As we spoke about in our initial hands-on review of the Filson Journeyman GMT, I view the Filson line of watches as a way for Shinola to sort of play around with their designs a bit, and take things in slightly different directions. While I would not go so far as to say that the Filson Dutch Harbor is breaking new ground, it is definitely a rather comely implementation of a dive watch.

Help Design the new Prometheus Manta Ray

Prometheus is a brand that I started working with pretty early on in my watch writing career here at WWR. While we may not have gone hands-on with their products for a little bit now, I have definitely kept tabs on what the company is producing. Their latest effort is going to be a redesign of the Prometheus Manta Ray.

Diving in with the Halios Tropik

Sometimes, it certainly can feel like you’re trying to drink from a firehose when it comes to keeping up with all the indie watch brands on the market these days. Even if you limit yourself to a single type of watch (for instance, divers) and shy away from those mushrooming up on Kickstarter, you are still left with an embarrassment of riches. This also means that, for us here at WWR, we can sometimes overlook a particular brand or watch. Vancouver-based Halios is one of those brands. For whatever reason, they were in my periphery, but I never focused in on them. That is, until I caught sight of the white-dialed Halios Tropik.

Introducing the TWCO Sea Rescue Diver Tactical

Who likes dive watches? You like dive watches. I like dive watches. Frankly, it seems, just about everyone likes dive watches. When they come from an popular indie brand with a combination of good looks and functionality? Well, that just about seems like a slam dunk. While the TWCO Sea Rescue Diver was first introduced in 2012, it focused on a higher-visibility color (in that case, yellow). Orange was the next logical step after that, and now its time for another refresh. This time around, the TWCO Sea Rescue Diver Tactical is going stealthy.
