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.

Introducing the Gavox Squadron: Military-Issue, Civilian-Ready

Posted on 15 July 2014

Gavox-Squadron-01

When it comes to military-inspired watches, we really don’t have a shortage of options. When it comes to watches that have actually been issued to a military force, and then made available to the general public, well, that’s a much smaller pool of companies. One of the latest to join those ranks is the Gavox Squadron. Continue Reading

Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal Review

Posted on 14 July 2014

Klaus-Kobec-Taj-Mahal-04

Often when a watch draws inspiration from something in the world – be it a car, plane, or even a city – things are limited to smaller touches, or perhaps something on the caseback. With the Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal, however, you’ve got the namesake inspiration front and center. Continue Reading

The TNT SEAHUNTER1 Combat Diver: Recycling a Rare Movement

Posted on 11 July 2014

TNT-SH1-1

While I don’t write on this class of watches all that much, I do love running across a watch brand that breathes new life into an older movement that might otherwise be headed for the bin. Then again, if you run across an signed (but older) Blancpain movement, odds are that it’s going to get used in some form. That’s exactly what TNT has done with their Seahunter1 Combat Diver.

The Ball Fireman Storm Chaser Pro: A Refined Tritium Chronograph

Posted on 10 July 2014

Ball-Fireman-Storm-Chaser-Pro-07

When you think tritium-equipped watches, there are likely a few brands that jump immediately to mind. That aside, what sort of watch do you picture in your head when you read the words “tritium watch”? Probably something that’s at least sport-oriented, if not outright “tacti-cool”. As you should be well aware, that’s not the only choice we have. You can definitely have a very refined look, along with tritium illumination, as the Ball Fireman Storm Chaser Pro proves.
