It seems to be that I am drawn in by classic designs, especially when they are well-executed in more compact packages. If you find yourself in the same boat, then the Archimede 1950’s is one you will want to sit up and take notice of.
We here at WWR have long been fans of what Benarus has been putting together. Much of the lineup is on the beefier side, as you would expect from a boutique-brand diver. The Moray has been prime evidence of this, having been made available in 47mm and 44mm variants. Now, for those of us looking for something a bit more compact, the Benarus Moray is now available – in the 42mm that we have seen in the past, as well as a 40mm variant.
Kickstarter is full of watch projects where the creators claim that they are trying to do something new, or they couldn’t find the watch they wanted so they made their own… To be honest, however, it is rare that these projects are actually really unique. They may be attractive and a good value, but rarely are they unique. Tempest just posted a project that certainly fits the unique bill though. The Tempest One Forged Carbon Watch is not only an attractive watch and a pretty good value, but it is going to be the envy of all your tech-loving friends.
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.
Over the weekend Touch of Modern put up three new sales that I though would be interesting to our readers. If you have not visited the site, it is a member’s only, limited time sale site that highlights a lot of cool products to wear or have around the house, mainly catering to guys. If you are not yet a member, join here, if you are already a member, head straight to the product pages.
Wow, is it Holiday season already? Halloween is behind us, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and then comes Chanukah in early December, Christmas (on the tradition date, go figure..), and Chinese New Year in February. So we put our heads together at the site and present you, the dear reader, with our Wrist Watch Review Holiday Gift Guide. Not everyone has the same budget, so we are trying to put together options at several price points for each of the categories.
Just about a year ago, we brought you word of a new British brand, W.T. Author, and their inaugural watch, the 1909. At this point, of course, you might think they are overdue to introduce a new model, and that is exactly what they have done. At this time, you can pre-order your own W.T. Author 1914.
