Just an update: my new book is now 99 cents on Amazon, a steal at twice the price. I had some great fun last weekend when William Gibson, my favorite…
A while back I took a look at the Mr Jones Watches Sun and Moon Miyamoto, which was a limited edition watch to honor the creator of the Super Mario games. At that point, we had covered more than a few Mr Jones Watches, but neither Patrick nor myself had been able to check out one in person. Well, a few emails later, a Mr Jones Watches Sun and Moon Miyamoto, now part of the regular collection, was on its way for me to check out. The bottom line: it is fun, well finished, and colorful.
Torgoen is not a brand that is a stranger to our pages. Most of the watches that we have written about from the brand, however, have focused more on aviation-related styles – and that makes sense, as that is where the brand started out. What we have for you today, in the form of the Torgoen Scorpion, takes much more of a tactical watch feel.
The Historical History series has one that has become a good bit more infrequent, and I have played around with some different ways of approaching it in the more recent appearances. Today is another experiment, one that I hope you will find a bit easier to consume. It’s a bit more of a roundup (rather like our Saturday posts), and gives you some bite-size summaries into some deeper topics. Today, we have articles covering watches that Elvis Presley owned, an editorial about the earliest form of chronograph, and then an article about the very first watch created by Giulio Papi.
Welcome back to our weekly roundup, Watching the Web.
When it comes to MeisterSinger, most people immediately think of their single-hand watches. While that particular style is not to my own preferences, I have become a fan of their models that also incorporate a jump hour complication. This of course keeps the single hand aesthetic while still giving you accurate time telling. While that is certainly what I would opt for, their latest model – the MeisterSinger Benjamin Franklin – offers up something rather more intriguing.
Overbuilt dive watches are not very rare. Inexpensive dive watches, even ones with automatic movements are not super hard to come across. But an overbuilt diver for less than $250 (currently on sale), those are not all that common. But this is what we find with the Deep Blue Sun Diver 1K dive watch. Patrick has looked at a couple of Deep Blue watches previously, but all have been north of $500.
Look up. It’s a bird, a plane. No, it’s a Luminox P-38 Lightning 9421 GMT watch. This large 44 mm brushed stainless steel bad boy is easy-to-spot on the wrist or, in my case, on the shelf of a local retailer.
