Torgoen is not a brand that is a stranger to our pages. Most of the watches that we have written about from the brand, however, have focused more on aviation-related styles – and that makes sense, as that is where the brand started out. What we have for you today, in the form of the Torgoen Scorpion, takes much more of a tactical watch feel.
Look up. It’s a bird, a plane. No, it’s a Luminox P-38 Lightning 9421 GMT watch. This large 44 mm brushed stainless steel bad boy is easy-to-spot on the wrist or, in my case, on the shelf of a local retailer.
Christoper Ward C8 01 Christopher Ward is one of our favorite brands here at WWR. They produce high quality watches, sell direct, and are generally priced fairly. They are also vary their designs, so there is something to fit most everyone’s taste, and they cover different sizes. Of late, we have featured their diving watches, a number of auto-inspired watches, and dress watches, but we haven’t done an aviation inspired watch in a while. I love my C11 (I own one of these), but the new Christopher Ward C8 Flyer Collection goes away from the instrument style case and back to the more traditional round case.
When it comes to the watches that we bring to your attention, we generally like to point out watches that are currently available – I.E., something you can actually buy today. With the moVas Bronze Officer, I am taking a bit of a risk. I caught wind of this watch when a special newsletter subscriber email went out, for which there was a special “insider” pre-order sale kicking in. Given that there are only 50 pieces of this model being made (more on that in a minute), there is a chance that, when the pre-order opens up to the general public, there may not be any pieces left. Even so, this is a pretty interesting watch in my book, so I thought it was worthwhile bringing it to your attention.
Here we are for the mid-July edition of Watching the Web, where Patrick or I get to point out interesting watch related articles that we have run across on the net, and highlight the most popular articles from our own site as well. This week, ABTW featured the exact type of watch that made me into a fan of high end watches, Worn and Wound has a nice watch from the other end of the price spectrum, and Wound for Life has an article on the benefits of silicon (in your watches). From our own pages the Mark Carson Ka La GMT, Patrick’s Historical review of the watches of Jacques Cousteau, and an older article on Ingersoll watches were all popular.
When it comes to stylish and affordable watches, Christopher Ward is generally one of the names at the top of most people’s lists. Given how “new” the brand feels, it is almost a surprise to realize that they have been creating these watches for ten years now. On the occasion of that anniversary, they went back to their very first watch, and released some new colors of their current-version Christopher Ward Malvern.
When it comes to new watch releases, there are a handful of features that always seem to grab my eye. First amongst those is a GMT complication, as it has quickly become my favorite one to have in a watch. Throw in some vintage styling (especially with a white or off-white dial), and you can consider my interest to be fully piqued. Needless to say, when I saw the photos of the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Dual Time, I knew it was a watch I would be writing about.
Tool watch, dress watch, dress watch tool watch; what to wear, what to wear? H2O Watch has an idea that maybe you don’t need to decide any more, you can get a nice tool watch that is elegant enough to wear as a dress watch, and does not have the price tag of a Panerai attached. The H2O Watch Hydra is currently open for pre-order, letting you pick from case finish/material, dial color, bezel design, and even crown to create a watch that fits your style, from the boardroom to the beach.
