Watching the web for July 16, 2016

Welcome to Watching the Web for July 16, our mid-July foray into watch related articles and watch reviews we find across these inter-webs. This week, I wanted to point out a Prometheus diver, a “value” dress watch, and an interesting woman’s watch, all excellent articles hosted on other watch sites (yes, there are other watch sites). We also get to crow about the articles we write which are popular, is I will point you to our posts on the Timemachinist Naval Destroyer, all that is wrong with watch payola, and the Steinhart Ocean 1 in bronze.

Welcome back to our regular weekend feature, Watching the Web. In this series, we take a look back at interesting articles from across the wider web of watch sites, as well as highlighting some of the most read articles from our own sites. From our friends in the world of watch writing, we have a smart watch that looks quite like the non-smart watches that preceded it, a bracelet review, and an editorial on watch guys. From our own pages, we have our recent editorial on watch reviews for hire, a reader review, and two hands-on reviews.

Watching the Web for July 2, 2016

Thank you for stopping by to kick off the long holiday weekend with us and checking out Watching the Web, where we find and highlight articles on other sites that we think are interesting. This week, I am going to start off with a round-up of 8 quartz watches that may be worth a consideration, move over to a Swiss made Royal Oak Offshore inspired chrono, and finish up with a warning about forcing the patina on your bronze and brass watches. The other purpose of this post is to highlight the articles on our own site that you found most interesting this week, which were reviews of the Arcane Watch and the CJR Airspeed Regulator and a reader’s review of their own Sapaneva Korona K3 Northern Starts watch.

Welcome back to our regular weekend feature, Watching the Web. In this series, we take a look back at interesting articles from across the wider web of watch sites, as well as highlighting some of the most read articles from our own sites. From our friends in the world of watch writing, we have new of an American brand creating their own (American-made) movement, a hands-on review of a watch that we previewed this week, and another hands-on article that focuses on new watches created by a former watch modder. From our own pages, we have a trio of hands-on articles, and a bonus one that covers some hot EDC gear.
