Watching the Web for May 31, 2014

Welcome back to our weekly installment, where we have a quick look at some interesting watches and articles that have popped up over the last week, as well as taking a second look at what some of our more popular articles this week were. Today, we’ve got a very nice Seiko that features a GMT complication, and a look at a watch brand I’ve not heard much about, Szanto.  After those, we’ll highlight (as usual) some of our more popular posts from the last week. Read on to see what we’ve got in store for you.

The Grand Seiko lineup is one that many of you likely don’t need any introduction too.  Sure, when you first hear about the line and the prices they go for (you don’t expect a four-figure Seiko, at least not when you’ve just picked up a Monster), you’re stopped in your tracks.  Do some research on them, and you may change your tune a bit, realizing the quality (and accuracy) they’re building.  While they’ve been a curiosity for me before, I’ve never given them too much thought.  That changes with the introduction of a GMT complication.  The team over at Monochrome give the watch a rundown, including word on the price (fortunately for my watch box, well out of my price range).

szanto

Going over to the opposite end of the pricing spectrum, TheTimeBum has a look at a brand I’ve not seen much attention on before, Szanto.  This looks to be a pretty massive watch (46mm) that wears a tad smaller, with some rather vintage looks (inspiration is supposedly drawn from the 1940s).  What I found the most interesting about this quartz chronograph was the fact that none of the subdials, or the date window, cut into the main numerals.  Sure, if makes things a bit “squished” in the middle of the dial, but it does give you full-size numerals, which is a common complaint on chronos.  Check out the review right here.

Christopher Ward C65 03

Now, let’s head back to our own pages.  First up, we’ve got Matt’s look at the newest model in the Christopher Ward Trident lineup, the C65.  We’re big fans of CW here, and I really enjoyed my time with the C60 Trident.  This latest version (well, when it’s available in June) takes the basic design in more of a dressy direction.  Sure, I miss the inclusion of a GMT complication, but for a clean three-hander for the office, this is a compelling (and affordable) option.

Bremont MBII 2

Next up we’ve got another of Matt’s articles, this time talking about a Bremont that most of us will never have the chance to own.  The reason being is that we’ve not ejected from a plane in a Martin-Baker ejection seat, which is a pre-requisite for owning this particular watch.  Should you like the styling, there are some civilian-ready variants, of course.  Check out Matt’s article for more details on the lineup.

Last, but certainly not least, don’t forget that you have a day left to enter our May giveaway!  Head on over here and get your entries in.

With that, we’ll wrap things up. As always, if there’s something you think we should be covering, feel free to drop us a line. If you bring something up that we end up writing about, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.

Want To Have Just One Watch? Bremont Has A Candidate For You

Posted on 24 September 2013 by Patrick Kansa

 

Bremont-Solo (1)

Now, I know, for most of us watch folks, the idea of having just one watch to put on your wrist sounds like something akin to heresy, as we like to change up what we’re wearing to match changing whims. I’m not here to advocate for or against it (though, one day, I could see having just one to declutter, as well as obtain a grail), if you are, why not have a watch who’s name ties in with the goal?

Is This Watch Super?

Posted on 19 October 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Bremont certainly thinks so, as they’ve labelled it the Super Marine.  At first, you might say that this name owes a lot to it’s 500 meter water resistance rating.  However, once you dig into the history of the Bremont company (established 2002; first watch produced in 2007), you learn that they’re a British company, and that Super Marine was actually the company that manufactured the Spitfire fighter plane.

Now that we have that mini-history lesson out of the way, let’s turn our attention to the watch itself. Continue Reading

Bremont U-2 watch review

Posted on 14 June 2010 by John Biggs


ABlogToRead has another in-depth review of one of our favorite watches, the Bremont U2. The watch is styled after the instrumentation of the U-2 spy plane and includes a specially protected movement inside a special material that allows the watch to survive – get this – a freaking cockpit ejection at full Gs. There is even another little treat for those in the know:
