You’re in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It’s crawling toward you… how do you train yourself…
A year ago, I couldn’t have told you one thing about the JeanRichard brand. My, how times have changed. In that intervening period, I’ve reviewed their Aeroscope (link) and Terrascope…
Not many of us are going to be able to afford a truly limited edition car, let alone one that is as steeped in racing history as a Ferrari GTO. After all, one did sell at auction for the princely sum of $52,000,000. But what if you could own a piece of one? A small sliver, but a piece none the less? That is what Christoper Ward is offering with the C70 3527 GT Chronometer, a bit of the metal from one of these cars built into the watch.
Why is it when someone wants to talk about an unbelievable deal, a swindle really, they talk about selling the Brooklyn Bridge? What is it about that makes anyone think that someone was gullible enough to think they were actually buying the bridge? Well, I am not going to sell you a bridge, I am going to go after something else named Brooklyn, the Rumba Time Brooklyn watch.
There are a whole lot of companies out there making modern aviation inspired watches. There is one company that has been doing it longer, and doing little else, and that is Trintec. I contacted them when I was reviewing their recent Kickstarter campaign, and they were nice enough to loan me one for their production watches for review, the Trintec Zulu-03.
One of the things I struggle with as a watch reviewer is how to discuss a watch that really is not for me, but may be perfect for other readers of the site. After all, I do not represent every watch buyer, I probably don’t even represent the average watch buyer. And the Cognitime Classic watch is exactly the type of watch i struggle to review. I like the construction, it wears well, and it presents time in a unique way, but it ultimately is not the watch for me. It may be for you though.
If you have read the site for a while, you should be aware of TokyoFlash Japan, a watch maker that specialized in… alternative displays built into digital watches. We have reviewed a number of their watches to date, and they just reached out to us for a launch deal on the new TokyoFlash Japan Kisai Kaidoku Wood. Through around 7:00 Pacific on July 30, you can get this watch for the introductory price of $109 (I don’t know what it goes up to after that).
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.
