Introducting the Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro 43

Even though I’ve been covering watches for a decent amount of time now, it is still a pleasant surprise to come across a brand doing something unexpected, especially one that has been established for a bit. That is especially helpful when they decide to apply the appellation of Retro to a new model – at least there is some back catalog to derive from. That is precisely what we have here with the Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro 43.

Introducing the Triwa Stirling Hvalen

When it comes to the watches from Triwa that we’ve taken a look at, they’ve generally been rather colorful – either in the case pattern (as seen here) or just in the overall aesthetic (as seen in this review). This time around, I want to focus some attention on a watch that’s a bit more monochromatic in its presentation – the Triwa Stirling Hvalen.

The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde – Now In Enamel

Today, we are going to take a venture into luxury watch territory that I do not often take us on here at WWR. Jacquet Droz is part of the Swatch Group portfolio, and they have been making some rather exquisite-looking watches, as well as some perfectly amazing novelties (just check out this Bird repeater). What’s most interesting to me about the Jacquet Droz Grande Second Quantieme Ivory Enamel is the dial material.

A Review Of The ITAnano Phantom Carbon 43 Quartz

I have had quite a few different case materials cross my desk over the last three years, though most of them tend to be a metal of some sort. I have also had a handful of watches with carbon fiber dials, so I’m not unfamiliar with the material. That all said, I have not spent any time with a carbon fiber monocoque case – that is, until the ITAnano Phanton Carbon 43 Quartz came in for review.
