Lew & Huey Orthos, Lets Go Diving

Posted on 29 July 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Lew Huey Orthos 01

For a lot of guys, a diver is the default tool watch.  The cases are usually fairly beefy, and that translates to masculine, the watches themselves are rugged, they serve a purpose, and they broadcast to the world that you are a man of action.  So you might as well inject a little style into the watch as well.  That is where the Lew & Huey Orthos comes in with their latest Kickstarter campaign.  These ‘friends of the site’ have put their fifth model up for sale, and the first true diver of the bunch.

Like the previous watches from the brand, this one is an automatic, powered by a Seiko Calibre 4r36 (NH35), which is both haking and hand winding, with a 41 hour power reserve.  The 42mm case and bracelet are done in brushed stainless, and there is a slightly domed sapphire crystal up front.  The watch offers 30 ATM (990 feet) or water resistance and a 120 click uni-directional bezel, so yes, this is a true diver’s watch.  Not that you have to wear it diving.  Visually, the dial is very attractive with both a color fade and a sunburst pattern.  After reviewing their Acionna, I can attest that they make interesting dials that really pop in the sunlight.

With this as their fifth model debuting on Kickstarter, I have to commend the brand for doing things right on the site.  This is a new model, and the prototypes do not always match the final product.  The project page does a very good job in laying out how the watch is going to change from prototype to final project, something I think all watch makers looking to move to crowd funding should understand and emulate.  The price for a watch is $400, and there are a number of other types of rewards offered.  There are two versions a red and a blue face.  I like the looks of the red face, but I also really like the orange bezel on the blue watch.  And no, I would not suggest pairing them, as I think it would be too much.  The lume on the watch also looks to be well done and appropriate for this type of watch.  If you are looking for a budget minded diver, check out the project pagelewandhuey.com

Watch Overview

  • Brand & Model: Lew & Huey Orthos
  • Price: $400
  • Who we think it might be for: Everyone needs a diver.
  • Would I buy or recommend it just on the photos?:  Yes, the brand delivers on their watches.
  • If I could make one design suggestion, it would be: Expansion built into the clasp.
  • What spoke to me the most about this watch:  I like the color fade in the dial.

The Lew & Huey Acionna, Take III

Posted on 23 June 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Lew Huey Acionna 11

If you think you have seen the Acionna by Lew & Huey on our pages already, you would be correct.  I wrote up the Kickstarter project for the site back when I was still a “friend of the site,”  and Patrick had a chance to spend a little time with a prototype.  Now that they are in production, the company sent over a pair of watches for a final hands-on review.
