TRIWA’s ‘Sort of Black’ Flips it Around

Posted on 17 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Sort-of-Black-Gold-Chrono_04

TRIWA (Transforming the Industry of Watches) is a Scandinavian watch company more aligned with the fashion of watches than the intricacies of the mechanics.  They sell in fashion boutiques and follow the fashion calendar, with two releases a year.  For the Spring collection, they have taken their existing Sort of Black Watch (all black with a bit of gold on the hands) and reversed the color scheme, producing a gold watch with a bit of black on the hands, in both a 3-hander and chronograph version.

Void-V03M-Automatic-12

Not too long ago, we brought you word of Void’s first automatic watch, the V03M (right here). At the end of that article, we mentioned we were working on getting in a review sample, and this is the day we deliver on that effort, with our hands-on review of the little guy. Continue Reading

Miró Watches, Hands On

Posted on 15 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

IMG_3571

Miró Watches is a relatively new brand, founded in 2012, bringing a clean, minimalist look to their watches.  Though the name is taken from a Spanish (Catalonian) Surrealist Artist, the design cues for the watch are pure Scandinavian, simple and functional.  Miró was kind enough to loan me a quartz watch in the Creme/Honey combination, but there are 5 different dial colors and 4 different strap options, so you have plenty of options.

New Watches on Touch of Modern

Posted on 14 April 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Cobre de Calibre No Date

This mornings, Touch of Modern (join here is you have not done so already) popped up four watches, three of which are former Kickstarter projects I have reviewed in the past.  First up was a favorite I did not pull the trigger on, but am temped to do so now.  The Cobre de Calibre is an automatic watch with a Miyota Calibre 9015, a textured ceramic dial and a sapphire crystal.  The watch is on sale for $365 to $395, depending on the model, a little less that the Kickstarter campaign price.  On offer are 5 models, including the no-date model and the red ricing stripe model.  My take on the watches was posted here, and the sale page is here at ToM.

Do you want an accurate watch?  Is a certified automatic too inaccurate and a quartz too, well, uninteresting?  How about an atomic clock.  Not a quartz watch that uses the atomic clock broadcasts, but an honest to goodness atomic clock that you can wear on your wrist?  Well Bathys has the Kickstarter project for you, the World’s 1st Atomic Wristwatch.

Interesting Android SmartWatch Over at ToM today

Posted on 07 April 2014 by Patrick Kansa

AD721BK-2T

I’ve covered some Android USA watches in the past (here and here), but those were from before the whole smart watch segment really started to get some traction.  Well, all the big new is the Android Wear, but that doesn’t mean that Android USA (not affiliated with Google) doesn’t have something in the segment.

Kickstart a Minimalist Chronograph

Posted on 25 March 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

TT Leather

Talley & Twine wants to upgrade your style.  They want you to buy a watch from the “World’s Best Dressed Watch Company.”  Now, I am going to say that it is pretty unlikely that Talley & Twine is the world’s best dressed watch company.  Maybe they are, but I have my doubts.  Buying a watch from them will not put you on a list of 10 best dressed gentlemen.  But the Worley Chronograph that is available now on Kickstarter is a pretty nice looking watch.  I would hazard that it could possibly make you a better dressed, depending on what else you might have available to put on your wrist.

A Wooden Arrow

Posted on 19 March 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Arrow 3

I am a fan of watches made from alternative materials, and have always likes wooden watches, though I have yet to pull the trigger on one myself.  A new watch project on kickstarter, The Arrow Project Watch, is an easy way to jump on the wooden watch trend yourselves.  The watch itself is a basic quartz three hander with date, styled like a diver.  The movement is not specified, so it is pretty likely that the watch is not going to contain a name brand movement, especially not for $99 Australian Dollars ($90 US), plus shipping.
