It’s a brand new month, and that means one thing here at WWR – it is time for a new giveaway! This month, we have teamed up with Torgoen to give away one of their very well-built (and affordable) watches. I rather like GMT complications, so we have na opportunity for you to win a Torgoen T5 GMT.

CT Scuderia Watches on Touch of Modern, Timing is Everything

Patrick and I have been able to conduct hands-on reviews for a pair of of CT Scuderia watches out of the four reviews we have posted here on the site, and we both are on board with the brand’s signature bullhead design. Probably the one knock is that they are priced into the “aspirational range,” at least for my pocket book. Well, for the next couple of days, there is a sale on CT Scuderia Watches on Touch of Modern, a members only sale-of-the-moment site we point you toward from time to time.

BaselWorld, Shinola, and new Argonite Movements

It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were bringing you word of a new collaboration between Shinola and Filson (link).

Shinola was not about to let those go unused in their own lines, and at BaselWorld, they introduced, formally, two new Argonite movements.

When it comes to the world of smart watches, one of the big complaints I have heard (and read about) is that they simply are not designed to be appealing to those who appreciate watches. Many of them are gadgets first, and just happen to be able to be strapped to your wrist. That argument is losing a lot of steam now, especially with the announcement of the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch.
