The Christopher Ward C9 Harrison 5 Day Automatic Goes In-House

Posted on 07 July 2014

Christopher Ward C9 01Christopher Ward is a watchmaker that gets a fair bit of space on our pages.  Not because they pay us, or advertise on the site, but because they make really nice watches and sells them at affordable price points.  I have one, a friend of mine has one, and I am pretty sure Patrick has one.  But all of these have someone else’s watch movement ticking away beneath the attractive design.  Well, CW just changed the equation.  The C9 Harrison 5 Day Automatic houses the brand’s first in-house movement, boasting a (you guessed it) 5 day power reserve.

Happy Fourth of July

Posted on 04 July 2014

fourth-of-july

Once again, it’s time that those of us in the US of A commemorate the birth of our country with barbecue, beverages, and good ol’ blowing stuff up (aka fireworks).  Since it’s a holiday a good chunk of us are observing, there’s really no watch post for this fourth of July.

If you’ve got a hankering for some American-made watches, though, feel free to search through our archives to see what we’ve written about in the past.  Barring anything unforeseen, we’ll be back tomorrow with our normal schedule.

Keep safe, and have a happy Fourth of July.

The Swatch Sistem51 Hands-On Review

Posted on 03 July 2014

Swatch-Sistem51-25

It’s not uncommon for there to be great anticipation when a new product is announced, and then we anxiously wait for it to actually hit the market. The watch industry is certainly not immune to this effect, and there’s been one mechanical watch that has been generating a lot of buzz over the past months – the Swatch Sistem51.  The day has finally arrived, and Sistem51 is here on our shores. On July 1 it was unveiled at the flagship store for Swatch in Times Square, and on July 8 a pop-up store hits San Francisco (101 Grant St) for the watch.

The holiday is approaching in a few days, and we just caught wind of the Lum-Tec July 4th Sale; all the details are in the images above.  Commercialism?  Sure, but if you’re in the market for a watch (and one with crazy lume at that) this could work nicely for you.  lum-tec.com

The Moment Smartwatch Does It All

Posted on 02 July 2014

Moment 01

The other day I wrote about 2 new smart watches that are driven by a single purpose, one to give you the score for your favorite soccer team, and the other to help you track your fitness.  Today’s watch goes in the other direction, a connected device that has the goal of being a complete interface with your smart phone.  The Moment Smartwatch is more of a full screen smart bracelet that interacts with your phone, and also tells the time.
