Morning Dew On A Web Desktop Background

Watching the Web for December 6, 2014

It is the weekend once again, so it is time for our weekly feature, Watching the Web, where take a spin about the World Wide Web to look at some interesting watches or watch related news that we have found this week. We also get a chance to highlight a few of our own articles that have been popular over the previous week (or so). For this week’s roundup, I thought Wound For Life’s essay on Shinola was interesting, and I found a watch related way to honor the LA King’s capturing of Lord Stanley’s Cup. From our own pages, we have two looks at the Lew & Huey Legends Racer and the second project from Helgray, the Silverstone Chronograph.

Helgray Silverstone, A Little Less Vintage

Helgray Watches came out of the gate a few months back with a four watch launch on Kickstarter. All four watches were modern takes on a WWI vintage look, and, to put it mildly, they blew up with $159,000 in pledges against a $12,000 goal. Now they are back on Kickstarter with their second, or is it fifth, watch, the Helgray Silverstone 60’s Racing Chronograph.
