When it comes to watches, I am generally able to figure out how to read the time on the watch, as well as grasping at least the basics of how it is things are being indicated on the dial. With a simple three-hander, there’s not much to decipher, as it’s rather familiar. You can get into some esoteric designs and displays though, and then it gets a bit trickier. I will admit, when I first saw the images of the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches, I finally had to ask the brand to enlighten me as to how it was working.
Welcome to the very first entry in what we hope will be a new continuing series – Reader Reviews. That’s right, gentle reader – you too can submit a review. More details on that at the end – for now, let’s get on to see what Erik Sorensen-Braasch thought of the Benrus H-6.
This watch has a delicate dial design with concentric rings pressed in the aluminum dial from the center of the watch to the outer chapter ring. Its use of small numerals contrasted with its larger, 42mm case.
A while back I took a look at the Mr Jones Watches Sun and Moon Miyamoto, which was a limited edition watch to honor the creator of the Super Mario games. At that point, we had covered more than a few Mr Jones Watches, but neither Patrick nor myself had been able to check out one in person. Well, a few emails later, a Mr Jones Watches Sun and Moon Miyamoto, now part of the regular collection, was on its way for me to check out. The bottom line: it is fun, well finished, and colorful.
When it comes to the watches coming from London-based Mr Jones, we have seen quite a variety of designs, mostly centered around interesting visual ideas and cues. Their latest, the Mr Jones Chatterbox, is certainly in that vein, with a variety of colorful characters decorating the dial. Oh, and telling the time.
Ah, summertime. Temperatures are warming up, and the strap collectors are swapping out their leather straps for nylon and rubber options, getting ready for the outdoor activities. What if, however, you are looking for something new to add that gives you something bright and lightweight, and easy on the wallet? Well, then, the Tissot Quickster Lugano may be just what the doctor ordered.
If you find yourself drawn to watches that take design inspiration from industries outside of watches, we have shown you over time how Projects Watches can fit that bill. The pull designers from all walks of life and put together some rather interesting designs. No, personally do not find myself drawn to each and every one, but I can certainly appreciate the decisions that go into making what they make. One of their more recent releases is the Projects Watches Meantime.
Looks like this Issey Miyake watch costs $205 and is pretty hot right now with the Japanese fashion watch set. I’d say pass, but do what you feel. Product Page…
