Flash Giveaway: A Suigeneric Strap

Today marks the day four years ago when I started off on this watch reviewing journey here at WWR, and I like to give back to you, our readers, when that occasion hits. So, to that end, I am going to run a quick flash giveaway – just for today – for the Suigeneric straps we reviewed a bit back.

Introducing the Obris Morgan Explorer II

In the course of writing about affordable watches here at WWR, we very often come across new brands, and we write about a good number of them. Sometimes those freshman outings are not the greatest. The issues we see can often be overlooked given the price points that things come in at, and we call out what we see as oversights in a model. While not totally uncommon, it is more rare that we continue to be in contact with a brand, and see a marked contrast (and improvement) in what is being offered. That is precisely what we have here today with the Obris Morgan Explorer II.

Introducing the Projects Watches Ora Major

Projects Watches is not a brand that seems to rest on its laurels. Sure, they have re-issues from their back catalog (like the Newark Museum Watch), but they also are creating new designs. We have featured a few different ones over the last year, and their latest takes a love of geometry and pushes it to the stars. That watch, designed by Alessio Romano, is the Projects Watches Ora Major.

The CJR Watches Velocita, One Unique Bull

Chronographs are one of the more popular complications for watches, though their actual usefulness can be debatable. I have one chrono which I wear quite often, though I use the chronograph function fairly infrequently when it is on. As a timing device, I find that a rotating bezel is usually good enough to time when I put the meat in the smoker, when I need to get back to the parking meter, or how long I have until the laundry is done (have I missed anything?). But if you want a chronograph to actually time things, the bullhead arrangement, where the pushers are located at top of the watch, is a useful arrangement. Which brings me to the CJR Watches Velocita currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. CJR was nice enough to lend me their two prototypes for a hands on review before the funding period ends on August 20.

A Banker’s Everyday Carry

Our last couple of EDC posts took a look at the longer form articles and topics that Everyday Carry had produced. Today, we are going to get back to what is perhaps the most user-engaging feature, where users submit either a good-old “pocket dump” (where they empty the contents of their pockets and send in a photo), or an organized look at what users carry with them on a daily basis, which generally gets into things that are carried along in a bag as well (not just in the pockets).
