Vincero Watches – Heart and Stone

Posted on 18 August 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Vincero Watches 02

I find it interesting when alternative materials are integrated into watches in an attractive way.  That is why I am drawn to some wooden watches, and also why I was interested in the Vincero Watches project up on Kickstarter right now.  For those of you who’s interests turn more to the solid feel of stone, this project may be something you want to check out.

Introducing the Waves Design Tesoro

Posted on 08 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Waves-Design-Tesoro-13

It seems as of late, there’s truly no shortage of watch designs hitting the various crowd-funding sites. Some of them are taking things in the brand’s own direction, others pay homage to popular designs of the past – or current day. The latest we’ve run across, the Waves Design Tesoro, is definitely in that latter camp. Continue Reading

Introducing the Smith and Bradley Ambush Digital Analog Watch

Posted on 04 August 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Smith-Bradley-Ambush-05

Ok, so that last Kickstarter project I put up was a bit of a last minute affair (that’s what we get for having me cover these instead of Matt, eh?), so I’m making amends this time around. We’re giving you plenty of advance notice for the latest US-built watch on Kickstarter, the Smith and Bradley Ambush. Continue Reading

The Ralston Recon 6 is a Survival Kit on Your Wrist

Posted on 23 July 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Ralston-Recon-6-05

Today, we’ve got a bit of a last-minute Kickstarter notice for you. I know normally we bring these to your attention with plenty of advance notice, but this one fell into my backlog, and, well, I’d rather pop this one up there than ignore it, as it’s bringing something to the table that I’ve not seen in a watch before. If you’re looking to have a survival kit built into a watch, the Ralston Recon 6 is your device. Continue Reading

Crowd-funded Watches: When It Rains, It Pours

Posted on 19 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

rubicon 50 01

If you saw yesterday’s article, you saw Matt’s return to our pages, with both a lamentation of watch projects on Kickstarter, and a celebration of those to be found on Indiegogo.  It would appear the powers-that-be heard his cry, and a handful of projects have come up on that elder statesman of crowd-funding.  Read on to see what he’s found.

Looking For A Yes Man?

Posted on 21 January 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Yes-Man-001

Now, in popular vernacular, being a “yes man” is not something that many  of us would aspire too (if you’re not sure what this is, just envision Smithers from The Simpsons, and you’re a long way there).    There’s a new Kickstarter project that just recently started up (and already hit 100% funding) that is hoping you can overcome that association.

Kickstarting Military Watches From Another Era

Posted on 17 January 2014 by Patrick Kansa

wristlet 03

Over the weekend, I wrote about the history of the B10 (aka NATO) strap. While the nylon B10 has become almost a paragon of minimalism when it comes to watch straps, there’s another style that has military ties (just like the B10), but goes in almost the exact opposite direction, stylistically. That style is known as the “wristlet” – read on to learn more about this recently-launched Kickstarter project. Continue Reading

An End of the Year/New Year Kickstarter

Posted on 02 January 2014 by Patrick Kansa

The Atlantis: American Built by Smith & Bradley

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.
