Garmin Approach S6, The Smartwatch I Might Want

Posted on 14 August 2014

Garmin Approach S6 03

OK, I am not all that enamored with Smartwatches.  I carry my phone and love my iPad, but I don’t see where I really need to see who is calling or texting by glancing at my wrist.  And I am plenty active, I don’t need a fitness monitor either, so that functionality does not excite me either.  But I am also a golfer, albeit a terrible one, and the Garmin Approach S6 may finally be the smartwatch that I want to own.

The Frederique Constant Healey Tribute

Posted on 13 August 2014

Frederique-Constant-Healy-24H-04

As we’ve written on these pages before, the Venn diagram overlap between watch enthusiasts and car enthusiasts is not small, by any means. Mix in a specific brand, and it might limit things some, but for those the brand meshes with, it’ll be right up their alley. So, is the Frederique Constant Healey GMT 24H for you? Continue Reading

Ritot Projection Watch, Too Big to Ignore

Posted on 12 August 2014

Ritot 03

I view a lot of crowd funded projects, and have backed a couple of watch projects myself, but every once in awhile a project just blows up on a crowd funding site, and that is what has happened to the Ritot Projection watch on Indiegog0.  With the project slated to end funding on August 21, the watch project has already garnered over $750,000 in pledges against a goal of $50,000.  And it is a very cool concept.  I just wonder if it will ever make it past the point of being a concept.

Projects Watches Twirl, Get Your Floating Hands Here

Posted on 11 August 2014

Project Watch Twirl 01

Projects Watches is an interesting brand, putting out low cost quartz watches driven not be fashion, but by design aesthetic.  We have covered them on our pages before, and recently they reached out to us for a new watch they are debuting, the Projects Watches Twirl.  The brand’s tag line for the watch is “a new interpretation of time,” but I see it more as a unique but still readable variation on the standard 2-hander.

Historical Horology: The Overshadowed Breitling 765 AVI Co-Pilot

Posted on 10 August 2014

Breitling-AVI-collection2

When it comes to aviation watches, and chronographs specifically, Breitling is a brand that is no doubt near the top of the list for most people immersed in that particular style of watch. And when you hear Breitling, you probably call to mind the Navitimer, as it’s just about the iconic model for the brand. What you may not know is that they had another equally capable watch, the Breitling 765 AVI / Co-Pilot. Continue Reading
