Introducing the RJ-Romain Jerome Skylab 48

When it comes to RJ-Romain Jerome, they do certainly have a distinctive way of going about things. They like to create watches with unique materials (say, using metal from the Titanic) and interesting dials (my favorite? The Batman DNA, of course!) Often, the focus is on the exterior of the watch, with the case and/or dial taking pride of place. Well, this definitely changes around with the RJ-Romain Jerome Skylab 48. Sure, the case is very familiar for the brand, but the star of this show is the movement.

Reviewing the CCCP Time Aurora

It’s been almost a year since we last looked at something from the CCCP Time catalog, so I’d say we were due. While the CCCP Time lineup is largely more of a Russian-influenced design (rather than being what most would consider a true Russian watch, at least in vintage terms), they do have a distinct style to them. This latest one, the CCCP Time Aurora, introduces some colored crystals to the design, for interesting effect.

Exclusive Review: Shinola Rambler GMT

Back when I reviewed the Filson Journeyman GMT, I noted that, while I liked the watch, the world timer bezel was rather difficult to manipulate (due to a combination of a tough spring and not much area to grip). Today, we are going to take a look at a version that has made some improvements to that bezel – the Shinola Rambler.

Gavox-Aurora-Featured

Introducing the Gavox Aurora

Gavox has had some interesting models lately. Most recently, it was the Gavox Squadron (more on that here and here) which was purpose-built for military pilots. Now, with the Gavox Aurora, they have another watch for pilots (designed with input from aviators) that offers something you do not often see with a world-timer – the ability to account for time zones that do not simply shift time by an hour.
