As we have mentioned before (and will no doubt harp on again and again), watches on the crowd-funding platforms really need to differentiate themselves. In other words, yeah, we get it it that you like your slimline, minimal two- (or three-) hander, but there are a gazillion of them, with some different ink printed on the dial. So, we have set out before to identify what we ask ourselves, and what you should ask (do you feel lucky, punk?) Fortunately, with this project, I really didn’t have those questions on my mind, because the quirky look of the Finn Watches – the Causeway and Fingal’s Cave – really caught my eye.
That you all for popping in to check out this week’s Watch Video Rewind, where we bring you videos on watch related topis we feel are of interest. In yesterday’s Watching the Web, I pointed you toward Monochrome’s retrospective look MB&F’s wrist watch collection. Today, I am going to follow the MB&F rabbit hoe a little deeper with a look at their clocks as well.
Welcome to Watching the Web, our weekly series of a peek around the internet to find interesting watch related articles. And, we also get to crow out the articles you found most interesting over the last week or so. This week, Hodinkee gives us Shinola’s responds to the FTC, ABTW checks out the Ressence Type 5, and Monochrome brings us the full line of MB&F watches. From our website, you guys found our articles about the Momentum Atlas 38, G. Gerlach Submarine, and TWCO Salvage Diver the most interesting (or at least the most read).
As you saw the other week, a crowd-funded project caught John’s eye. He wrote up the Manchester Watch Works Morgan, while (unbeknownst to him) a prototype of one of those very watches was winging its way my direction. I have spent a little bit of time with the watch, and now it’s time to give you my impressions of the watch.
We are a bit overdue for showing our pals over at Everyday Carry some love, so today we are going to give you a one-two punch from their recently published articles. The first item is a pocket dump that features a watch John recently wrote up, and the second is a gear roundup of their top items from May.
Now, if you are going to introduce a new watch, and want to ensure that people know it’s a diver, calling it a Submarine is certainly the way to go. That’s what we have here with the recently-announced G. Gerlach Submarine.
The Omega Deep Black series, like the seminal Smell The Glove, comes in black. How much more black could it be? The answer is none, none more black. These new…
There must be something in the water in the Netherlands, as there have been more than a few interesting watches – all divers – coming out of the country over the last year. The latest to come to our attention from those shores is the TWCO Salvage Diver.
