Anicorn Series 000, Spin You Right Round

I frequently write that too many crowd funded watch campaigns complain about the lack of interesting designs, and then the offered project ends up being another generic design. So I like it when I find a project that really tries to differentiate themselves. And this is the case with the Anicorn Series 000 Automatic watch. At the very essence, it is a three hander, but it is the chapter rings that rotate with the time, while the pointer stands still. It is not the first time I have seen this concept, but it is not a common way to build a watch.

Hands On With The Visitor Watch Co. Duneshore

Today, we are going to mix things up a little bit for you. Obviously, Kickstarter watches are not anything new. What is new (or at least different, as of late), is that it will not be Matt covering it. As it turns out, Visitor Watch Co. is a short train ride from Chicago, so its owner, Phil Rodenbeck, hopped on over to give me a hands-on look at the debut models in the Calligraph collection: the Visitor Watch Co. Duneshore.

H2O Kalmar 2, Have it Your Way

I see a lot of crowd funded projects, and many of them state that the creator couldn’t find the watch they wanted, so they went off and created one. Some times the watch is fairly unique in an aspect or two, but other times I could easily find similar watches with minimal searching. But still, there is a desire to design something and make it your own. Which is what is intriguing about the H2O Watch business model, and the H2O Kalmar 2 which is available for pre-order. There is a full menu of options for the watch that lets you customize it the way you want, and still get a high performing dive watch.
