Today’s watch, on the other hand, was a bit of a “shock to the system” you might say. The Titan Edge is by far the lightest and thinnest watch I have ever worn.
One of the great things about being a watch reviewer is the fact that watch companies will give you the opportunity to wear their watches for a while, gather your thoughts about them, and then review them. The bad part about it is that you have to be ready to part with the watches when you are done. When I opened box for the Detroit Watch Company 1701 automatic, I knew that giving this watch back was going to be tough. This is my favorite watch which I have had the opportunity to review hands-on in my tenure here at WWR.
Tritium-equipped watches are nothing new to these pages. We have taken a look at a few different brands and varieties over the past few years, and I always have come away enamored with the light output (and colors of said light) of the watches. Today, we have got something a bit different with regards to the tubes used. For the first time here, we will be featuring a watch that has flat tritium tubes – the Nite Icon T100.
TokyoFlash Japan is no stranger to our site. They produce fun digital watches that typically have unique ways to display the time. Recently, they reached out to us offering a watch for a hands on review, and I thought it would be interesting to look at the TokyoFlash Japan Kisai On Air, a digital take on a one hand watch.
Today, we are taking a second look at the Borealis brand, with our first look of course being Matt’s earlier review. While he was looking at the model, we will be talking about the Borealis Sea Hawk, the first 1500m rated diver that I have had on my wrist.
Bremont is one of those small, high end watch companies in Britain that is not very well known in the US. We have covered the brand a few times, and I highlighted the MBI/MBII a while back. New for November is the polished stainless steel version of their Classic Line, the Bremont ALT1-C /PW, joining the line that already sports a variety of colored dial versions and a rose gold case version.
There are a variety of finishes and styles available for dials these days, and you can pretty easily find something that is to your liking. If you want something that is unique to the piece, but do not actually want to go the route of a custom watch, natural materials are your friend. This often takes the form of colorful stones (think marble) or even semi-precious stones. For something a bit more “out of this world”, you might opt for something like the Thomas Earnshaw Meteorite.
There are a couple of companies producing dive watches with cushion cases, and I have seen quite a few bronze divers of late, but there are not a lot of bronze divers with a cushion case. Well the Benarus Bronze Moray 42 is here to help fill that niche. Offered in two dial colors with two design options each, this limited production watch is a statement on your wrist.
