Today, we are taking a second look at the Borealis brand, with our first look of course being Matt’s earlier review. While he was looking at the model, we will be talking about the Borealis Sea Hawk, the first 1500m rated diver that I have had on my wrist.
Over the weekend Touch of Modern put up three new sales that I though would be interesting to our readers.

Bremont is one of those small, high end watch companies in Britain that is not very well known in the US. We have covered the brand a few times, and I highlighted the MBI/MBII a while back.

When it comes to iconic dive watches, I am sure we all have many of the same ones pop to mind, most often coming from Rolex and, due to their more recent resurgence, Panerai. Back in the 1950s, though, there was another brand that produced what I feel is an iconic diver as well – the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. That is the watch we will be going through in today’s edition of Historical Horology.
It is the weekend, so it is time once again for our weekly feature, Watching the Web, where take a spin about the internet 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 am pointing you to a watch that will appeal to the computer nerds out there, a review of the Alpina Startimer Automatics from ABTW and a peek at what 3D printing can bring to the watch world. From our site, we have Patrick’s first hand look at the Visitor Watch Company inaugural offering and a DIY Diver from H2O.
Wow, is it Holiday season already? Halloween is behind us, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and then comes Chanukah in early December, Christmas (on the tradition date, go figure..), and Chinese New Year in February. So we put our heads together at the site and present you, the dear reader, with our Wrist Watch Review Holiday Gift Guide. Not everyone has the same budget, so we are trying to put together options at several price points for each of the categories.
Today, Touch of Modern kicked of a very nice set of deals on some LÜM-TEC watches. In fact, they have twenty-four different styles on offer
