The Nite Icon T100 Review

Tritium-equipped watches are nothing new to these pages. We have taken a look at a few different brands and varieties over the past few years, and I always have come away enamored with the light output (and colors of said light) of the watches. Today, we have got something a bit different with regards to the tubes used. For the first time here, we will be featuring a watch that has flat tritium tubes – the Nite Icon T100.

While Touch of Modern (join here for free if you are not a member) does sales all the time, we are seeing more watches right now, and it seems like a good idea to pass the opportunities on to you, our dear readers. Starting today, Trintec goes on sale at the site, with discounts of 37% on several of their quartz and automatic watches.

NUVO Discovery Collection, Wood on the Inside

For a while, I was very enamored with the ideas of a wood watch case. But the more I saw, the more I realized the limitations of the material. You can’t make it tough and thin at the same time, it is hard to waterproof, and the all-wood cases are often pale imitations of regular case designs. For those reasons, I am more interested in watches that incorporate wood into the watch, without using it as the case material. This led me to take a closer look at the NUVO Discovery Collection of watches, put together by a fledgling watch company out of Australia.

Wrist Watch Review Holiday Gift Guide

Wow, is it Holiday season already? Halloween is behind us, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and then comes Chanukah in early December, Christmas (on the tradition date, go figure..), and Chinese New Year in February. So we put our heads together at the site and present you, the dear reader, with our Wrist Watch Review Holiday Gift Guide. Not everyone has the same budget, so we are trying to put together options at several price points for each of the categories.

Anicorn Series 000, Spin You Right Round

I frequently write that too many crowd funded watch campaigns complain about the lack of interesting designs, and then the offered project ends up being another generic design. So I like it when I find a project that really tries to differentiate themselves. And this is the case with the Anicorn Series 000 Automatic watch. At the very essence, it is a three hander, but it is the chapter rings that rotate with the time, while the pointer stands still. It is not the first time I have seen this concept, but it is not a common way to build a watch.
