I think that it is safe to assume that, if you are reading articles here on WWR, you are in to watches. Yes, we all have our own favorite styles, complications, and brands, but it all falls under the umbrella of watches. Are you as in to watch straps are you are the watches themselves? I have come to realize that I am (Hi, my name is Patrick and I’m a burgeoning watch strap collector).
As you saw the other week, a crowd-funded project caught John’s eye. He wrote up the Manchester Watch Works Morgan, while (unbeknownst to him) a prototype of one of those very watches was winging its way my direction. I have spent a little bit of time with the watch, and now it’s time to give you my impressions of the watch.
Now, if you are going to introduce a new watch, and want to ensure that people know it’s a diver, calling it a Submarine is certainly the way to go. That’s what we have here with the recently-announced G. Gerlach Submarine.
Every few years, an article gets posted about the apocalypse coming, when SWATCH group will stop selling ETA movements to small independent watch makers. It’s struck fear in the hearts…
We here at WWR have said it time and again – we in the watch world are being overrun with minimalistic, thin, quartz watches. On one hand, there is nothing…
Have you ever sat down on a park bench, drinking in the afternoon sun, and thought “The world needs now is another crowdfunded racing-styled quartz chronograph?” Well you’re in luck….
Warm weather is here, which means a lot of us are going to be spending a lot more time in the outdoors. If you are looking for a great watch to accompany you, the military-esque styling of a field watch is certainly a solid look to go for. To that end, the newly announced (and quite affordable) Momentum Atlas 38 is something you may consider.
As you might imagine, we get all manner of emails coming in here at WWR telling us about new watches. While this is an invaluable stream of information, it sometimes can have a frustrating signal-to-noise ratio. Fortunately, most of those messages contain an image or two of the watch that is being introduced, and this lets us easily hone in on what is of interest to us and our readers. Even though I did not know anything about the specifications (or even the pricing) of the Alvieri Firenze, when I saw the images, I was fairly certain this would be a watch we would cover.
