Introducing Finn Watches

As we have mentioned before (and will no doubt harp on again and again), watches on the crowd-funding platforms really need to differentiate themselves. In other words, yeah, we get it it that you like your slimline, minimal two- (or three-) hander, but there are a gazillion of them, with some different ink printed on the dial. So, we have set out before to identify what we ask ourselves, and what you should ask (do you feel lucky, punk?) Fortunately, with this project, I really didn’t have those questions on my mind, because the quirky look of the Finn Watches – the Causeway and Fingal’s Cave – really caught my eye.

The Alvieri Firenze bubbles up on Kickstarter

As you might imagine, we get all manner of emails coming in here at WWR telling us about new watches. While this is an invaluable stream of information, it sometimes can have a frustrating signal-to-noise ratio. Fortunately, most of those messages contain an image or two of the watch that is being introduced, and this lets us easily hone in on what is of interest to us and our readers. Even though I did not know anything about the specifications (or even the pricing) of the Alvieri Firenze, when I saw the images, I was fairly certain this would be a watch we would cover.

Rossling & Co looks to fund their new Metropolitan

It can be quite a treat to see a brand come along and then start to explore new avenues of design. One such of those brands would be Rossling & Co. We became aware of them early on in their kickstarted existence, and just recently they started up a new project, with a design that takes their previous design in a new direction. So, what does the new Rossling & Co Metropolitan collection have in store for you?

Introducing the Xeric Soloscope Collection

After what seemed to be a drought of interesting watch-related projects on the crowdfunding sites, we have been seeing a flood of more interesting things cropping up. Xeric (which the guys from Watchismo started up) has been creating watch designs that break from normal conventions, keeping in line with the quirky and interesting designs that they offer on their site. Their latest designs, in the form of the Xeric Soloscope collection, mix in some elements of previous models and bring some new things to the table.
