The Ralston Recon 6 is a Survival Kit on Your Wrist

Posted on 23 July 2014

Ralston-Recon-6-05

Today, we’ve got a bit of a last-minute Kickstarter notice for you. I know normally we bring these to your attention with plenty of advance notice, but this one fell into my backlog, and, well, I’d rather pop this one up there than ignore it, as it’s bringing something to the table that I’ve not seen in a watch before. If you’re looking to have a survival kit built into a watch, the Ralston Recon 6 is your device. Continue Reading

Brigade 7 Scope – Taking Aim at a Budget Automatic

Posted on 22 July 2014

Brigade 7 Scope 01 I like finding good values in a watch, without resorting to too many compromises.  There are values to be had at all different price points, but at the entry level point, I find that you have to sacrifice more of what you would want to get a good value.  Enter a Kickstarter campaign for the Brigade 7 Scope watch, an automatic with a lot of features for a very low introductory price.

CCCP Shchuka Watch Review

Posted on 21 July 2014

CCCP-Shchuka-13When you first start getting into watches, you find yourself swimming in the waters of familiar brands. Then you venture out into some deeper waters when you find the online forums, and you start running across a wide variety of brands, especially if you’re talking about older, second-hand watches. A large segment of those older watches (at least from when I was on that path) seem to revolve around watches coming from the former Soviet Union. They’ve got their ardent supporters, for sure, and now there’s a new brand playing in that pool. Today, we’ll take a look at the CCCP Shchuka. Continue Reading

Welcome back to our weekly installment, Watching the Web, where we have a quick look at some interesting watches and articles that have popped up over the last week, as well as taking a second look at what some of our more popular articles this week were.

Diving In With The Mühle-Glashütte Kampfschwimmer

Posted on 18 July 2014

Muehle-Glashuette_Kampfschwimmer_M1-28-92-NB

Time and again, dive watches prove themselves to be a popular style of watch, as do military watches. While there are some brands that can tie themselves at some point in their heritage to a military diving unit, finding a current production watch that’s in use by a naval unit is a decidedly rarer thing. That is, until the Mühle-Glashütte Kampfschwimmer became available. Continue Reading

Timex Weekender Deal at Amazon

Posted on 17 July 2014

timex-weekender

I just caught word of this Timex Weekender Deal over at Amazon, so I thought it was worth it to pass it along.  At $20 apiece (there are currently five varieties available), this is practically a no-thought purchase, especially if you’re looking for a weekend beater, or something affordable for a friend or family member.

You can see some of our Weekender reviews right here.

Orbital by element watch, A Family Affair

Posted on 17 July 2014

Orbital by element watch 02

There are a lot of kickstarter watch projects where the creator has a dream of designing a watch, and then connects with a manufacturer in China to produce the watch.  Well, element watches adds a twist to that formula, in that the watch manufacturer back in China is owned by the designer’s father.  The Orbital by element watch is the company’s second bite at the kickstarter apple, and in my opinion it is a more attractive watch than the (unsuccessful) first project.

Tsovet SVT-RS40, California Dreaming… In the Space Age

Posted on 16 July 2014

Tsovet SVT RS40 05

You learn something new every day.  I had seen Tsovet watches on-line and in stores, and with the “Swiss Made” designation, I just figured they were a European brand selling their wares on these shores.  Little did I realize that the brand is actually out of Newport Beach, a mere couple of miles from where I sit writing this review.  The Watch Co., an authorized retailer of Tsovet watches was kind enough to send me one a Tsovet SVT-RS40 men’s analog watches for review, and I have really enjoyed wearing it.
