Today, we are going to walk through the most recent creation from British brand WT Author. This young company has an ambitious goal, to create models that represent periods across…
You know who we have not had on our pages in some time? Fossil, that’s who. While they are ostensibly a more fashion-oriented brand, they do offer a large variety of styles at rather affordable price points. Today, we have a hands-on look at a watch they consider to be in their dressier collection, the Fossil Machine.
We first brought you word of the new brand Boxer Watches back in 2012, when we did a hands-on review of the Zeus (LINK; verify it was a review). A few years on, and they are back with their second model. As with the Zeus, they have gone with a skeletonized movement, this time in a squared-off case. Let’s have a look at the Boxer Watches Black Ice.
Titanium seems to be a popular material for watches these days. At least, that is, for watches that have been crossing my desk. As we saw with the Tempest Commodore, titanium helps cut down the weight of a watch while still offering strength and durability. Today, we’ll take a look at another one that leverages those attributes, the Shinola Black Blizzard.
When it comes to dive watches, the past few years have seen an explosion of brands offering very competent and well-designed pieces, often times powered by Japanese automatic movements. Tempest is one of those brands, and they first caught my eye with the high-domed Viking. Today, we are taking a look at their latest offering, the Tempest Commodore.
Tissot is a brand that I am aware of, but have not been around much. This changed recently when then loaned me the T-Touch Expert Solar and the Tissot Quickster for hands on reviews. The Swiss watchmaker produces a variety of watches, including these two models that are geared toward the action oriented.
When it comes to watches, I have honed my own personal preferences down over the last few years. When it comes to case sizing, I tend to prefer something that falls under 44mm; when we are talking about complications, a GMT hand has become one of my favorites. The combination of those two items really is not a rare thing, but it is nice when they come together in a clean, legible package. That is exactly what we have in today’s review of the Butler Professional Series GMT.
The last time we took a look at the Smith & Bradley Atlantis, we were spending time with the model that launched on Kickstarter. At the time we were looking at it, we were made aware of changes that were in the works for the production (ie, non-Kickstarter) version of the watch. Today, we will run through some of the changes and upgrades made to the Smith & Bradley Atlantis.
