The watches created by Uniform Wares have been interesting beasts. They create watches that are very clean, both in terms of the styling executed, as well as the lack of branding and text on the dial. While prior watches from the brand have been on the more casual end of the spectrum, they have now introduced a much dressier creation. Let’s take a closer look at the Uniform Wares C40.
I am a fan of Touch of Modern, and have bought a number of items for myself and my house through the site, including a watch back before I started wring for WWR. The site, as I have mentioned here previously, is a members only sale site (join here if you are not a member) specializing in modern goods that skew toward a male audience. Sales are limited time, and frequently include watches. Right now, there are several watch deals on Touch of Modern, including Cobra de Calibre, Vintage Rolexes, and watches from Jean Marcel, Ballast, and Alessandro Baldieri.
We first brought you word of the new Filson (by Shinola) watches in February. While they are, at their heart, Shinola watches, they have a different look and feel to them that switching to the Filson name allows (sort of how auto manufacturers go for different styles on the same basic platform across brands). My preferences being what they are, I found myself drawn to the GMT models being released, along with their tincloth straps. To the best of my knowledge, we are the first site able to bring you a hands-on review of the Filson Journeyman GMT
As of late, TokyoFlash really seems to be into a sort of 70’s SciFi sort of a motif, mixing wood (for the case and bracelet) with angular shapes and vivid LED displays. This latest somehow manages to call to mind the consoles of Star Trek The Next Generation (which of course is a different era of scifi). Not that they had circular displays, but just the use of color and the segments. Perhaps I am getting ahead of myself here a bit, though. Let’s take a look at what the TokyoFlash Kisai Satellite X Wood has on offer.
Origin stories for crowd funded watches are long past redundant at this point, especially if you search out for these projects. What I really care about is how the watch looks, and is it a good enough value to jump in and take a chance. With the Ventus Caspian Watches currently funding through April 25, the watch looks great and the value seems to be there.
