Or, more accurately, they want to be timing other, very skilled, bicycle riders. With their just recently announced sponsorship of the Tour de France, it seems like the Swatch Group…
So here’s what’s up: I don’t know if WWR can last through 2016. I’ve been paying my guys out of pocket and managing the servers for about 5 years now…
You know who we haven’t heard from in awhile? Projects Watches, that’s who. Late last year we had a good spate of coverage on different watches they’ve released, and we even ran a giveaway for a Michael Graves-designed Newark (LINK to original writeup).

Hello and thanks for swinging by to check out our Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we look for cool watch related videos from around the web, and bring them to your attention. Today we have a manufacturing video, a manufacture visit, and a collector interview.
Welcome back to our weekly Saturday feature, Watching the Web, where we highlight interesting watch related posts that we come across on other sites, as well as take a moment to look back at our own popular recent articles. From the wide world of watches, we have a collectors take on a Bugatti watch, a writeup on the resurgence of pocket watches, and an opinion piece on what Instagram is doing to watch collectors. From our own site, we have the Deep Blue DayNight, a three-for AVI-8 review, and some old-school Seikos.
I have been aware of the Minuteman brand for some time now, but the watches they were creating really never piqued my interest. Sure, the concept behind the brand – using watch sales to assist veteran’s charities – is admirable, and now they finally have a watch that I think merits some discussion, regardless of whatever other good work may be done by the brand (just consider it a bonus). So, with that, let’s see what the Minuteman Independence has to offer.

We here at WWR like to focus on a wide variety of watches, and we certainly enjoy when we get to showcase something that is built in our neck of the woods. One brand we have not focused on as much, for whatever reason, is Ohio-based Lum Tec. They just recently announced their new-for-2016 models, and there was one in particular that caught my eye – the Lum Tec Combat B33 GMT.
