I hope everyone here in the US has enjoyed their Thanksgiving and there were no fired turkey disasters. For our readers outside the US, I hope you had a lovely Thursday and Friday as well, and welcome to Watching the Web for November 28. We take this time to highlight some interesting watch reviews and watch related posts from other sites, as well as highlight our own more popular posts of the last week or so. This week, you can get your freak on with Ulysse Nardine, Zenith pulls your chain, and the FTC clears the air. From our own site, we have the 2015 Gift Guide, Lew & Huey’s sale, and the Van Speyk Dutch Diver.
Black Friday, Cyber Monday, doorbusters on Thanksgiving itself, this is the start of the discount season, at least here in the US, and Lew and Huey and getting on on the excitement. From now through December 1, the brand is giving a discount of $100 on any Acionna or the Spectre, $75 on any Cerberus, and $50 on the Orange/Blue and Red/Gray Orthos.
We just received word the other day from our pals over at Lew & Huey about a handful of updates, so we thought we’d share the news out here as well, as it is likely of interest to our readers. This roundup contains information on the Lew & Huey Phantom pre-order, a handful of replacement dials, and some new strap options.
How do you breathe new life into your watch? Well, one way is to swap out the strap. We have covered a lot of straps here on the site, but that only goes so far. What if you really want to change things up a bit? Or what if you like a watch, but just not the exact color scheme on offer? The folks at Lew & Huey have you covered (if you have a Cerberus or Orthos) with their current pre-sale on Lew & Huey modification parts for these two watches. You can either order them for a watch you already own, or order a new modified watch from the brand.
Lew & Huey have been somewhat of a crowd source darling company, launching their watches to date through campaigns on Kickstarter. Now, with a mature fan base, several models on the market, and good name recognition for a new, independent brand, the Lew & Huey Phantom is going on sale, with pre-orders (opens noon Eastern on 4/20, link is not active until then) direct from Lew & Huey.
The Lew & Huey Legends Racer is a great combination of classic racing watches in a modern, and affordable, package.
Lew & Huey are back at it again, with their sixth watch project launched on kickstarter. This time, the Lew & Huey Legends Racer is a square case design that harkens back to the look of the Tag Heuer Monaco, with a bit of the look of the Tudor Heritage Chrono.
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.
