Last month was the annual watch show known as Baselworld. In the run up to the show, we had a lot of press releases coming in on things that were to be announced. Then of course as the show got underway, there was another tidal wave of information. This meant that there was a watch I had intended to write about that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle. While Baselworld is now behind us, I think its still worthwhile for us to take a look at the Savoy Epic Vault.
We here at WWR are fans of seeing watch startups kicking off here in the ‘States, and I have personally had an enjoyable time getting to know the guys behind Smith & Bradley, as well as the watches they are creating downstate from me. Just a little bit ago, we brought you a breakdown of what was going on with their upgraded Atlantis, which already had quite a few options to choose from. Now, you have the ability to create your own Smith & Bradley custom Atlantis (originally reviewed here).

Bausele is a brand we’ve not heard from since we took a look at their Surf Watch back in early 2012. Well, the Australian brand hasn’t fallen off of the edge of the earth. To the contrary, they’ve been plugging along, and now they’re back with their first automatic model.
Earlier this year, we brought you word (here) of the Sans-13, the first crowd-funded watch from Smith & Bradley (you can see my hands-on review of it right here). When I met with the company, they had said they were planning an automatic for the future. Well, that future has arrived, and Matt Himmelstein is giving us his thoughts on their recently-launched Kickstarter campaign.
Our pal Matt Himmelstein is back with another Kickstarter watch, the Mouve M01. If you ask me, this one definitely has hints of Panerai and/or Tsovet – which I’ll leave…
Aviation watches. These seem to be one of the more popular styles of watches, second perhaps only to dive watches (this is solely based on the types of watches…
