Touch of Modern (join here is you are not already a member), is a limited time, members only sales site that features lots of guy-centric goods. For our audience, it is the watches that really matter, and the site does feature a lot of watch sales. Right now, Davosa Swiss Automatics are on sale at Touch of Modern, plus one quartz chrono for the budget minded.
The Visitor Watch Co Duneshore is getting closer, and you can still order one at a discount for the next few days.
Christopher Ward gets a fair bit of love here at WWR, mainly because they produce high quality, attractive watches at affordable price points. Now in their 10th year, the company is updating their line of dive watches, the Christopher Ward Trident Collection. The new collection offers four choices of movements, along with a number of other improvements and two case sizes.
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.
How does that Hair Club for Men commercial go, “I’m not just the President, I am also a client.” Well, with Zelos, I am not just a blogger, I am an owner; when the Helmsman launched, I put my money down for the Bronze/brown with Serial #1. Now, Zelos Watches is back for their third launch on Kickstarter, the serious bronze diver, the Zelos Abyss.
Prometheus is a brand that produces nice looking serious dive watches at affordable price points. Through January 31, 2015, they have a pre-order opportunity for their newest dive watch, the Prometheus Poseidon. This is a serious (read overkill) automatic dive watch, water resistant to 3,500 meters with a helium escape valve and several other bells and whistles.
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.
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.
