Refined Hardware Robber Baron Watch Review

Posted on 07 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa


The last time we took a look at a watch from Refined Hardware (here), I really grew to like their machine, or industrial, aesthetic. They’ve continued to build on that strength, and have released some additional models that are definitely cut from the same cloth. With the Robber Baron line, they’ve changed things around a bit, and have, well,  refined things a bit more, making for a compact piece. Continue Reading

Omega Speedmasters Mark II and Apollo 11, Back to the Future

Posted on 04 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein


45 years ago, man first walked on the moon.  And an Omega was there.  And Omega wants you to know that.  That year, they released the Speedmaster Mark II, featuring the same movement that was in the watch worn by the astronauts.  And now it is time for an update and reissue.  The new Speedmaster Mark II retains the overall look of the original, but also provides nice modern updates.

Benarus Sea Snake (v2) Review

Posted on 02 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa


Benarus is a brand I became familiar with early on in my career here at WWR, and we’ve covered a number of their pieces. I was almost two years ago that I first took a look at their Sea Snake diver (parts one, two) and today, we’re going to revisit the watch, as they’ve recently released a new version of the piece.  As the v1 is one of my personal watches, we’re also able to bring you some side-by-side photographs as well.

Ocean 7 LM-8 Professional Deep Diver, Hands On

Posted on 31 March 2014 by Matt Himmelstein


Ocean 7 was nice enough to ship out their LM-8 Professional Deep Diver watch for a review, and I was able to spend a few days with it.  The first thing you notice when you take it out of the box is that this watch is substantial, which is to be expected for a watch rated to 2,000 meters.  OK, it is more than substantial, it is heavy.  And big.  There is a possibility that I have held heavier wrist watches (I am sure there are some beasts out there that I have not seen as well), but if I have, it was not by much.  Continue Reading

Jaquet Droz Announces The Signing Machine

Posted on 27 March 2014 by John Biggs

In what has to be one of the oddest Novelty announcements I’ve seen in a while, Jaquet Droz has released something their calling the Signing Machine, a mechanical pantograph that signs your name again and again, essentially allowing your fingers to rest comfortably in a bowl of human growth extract while you sign paperwork.

Kickstart a Minimalist Chronograph

Posted on 25 March 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

TT Leather

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, depending on what else you might have available to put on your wrist.

In today’s review, we’ll have a look at a watch that features styling and functionality we’re more used to seeing in a men’s watch. Continue Reading

Marvin M025 Ladies Watch Review

Posted on 18 March 2014 by Patrick Kansa


We’ve reviewed quite a few different watches from Marvin over the last couple of years, but to date, we’ve not had any of their women’s models in for review. Today, we’ll take a look at the first of two that we had sent over for review, a tweed-equipped model from their M025 lineup. Continue Reading
