We are normally all about watches, but when the guys at Smith & Bradley put together the Smith & Bradley Beacon Box, I wanted to get the word out.
The Lew & Huey Legends Racer is a great combination of classic racing watches in a modern, and affordable, package.
Lew & Huey are back at it again, with their sixth watch project launched on kickstarter. This time, the Lew & Huey Legends Racer is a square case design that harkens back to the look of the Tag Heuer Monaco, with a bit of the look of the Tudor Heritage Chrono.
Today, we are going to mix things up a little bit for you. Obviously, Kickstarter watches are not anything new. What is new (or at least different, as of late), is that it will not be Matt covering it. As it turns out, Visitor Watch Co. is a short train ride from Chicago, so its owner, Phil Rodenbeck, hopped on over to give me a hands-on look at the debut models in the Calligraph collection: the Visitor Watch Co. Duneshore.
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.
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.
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?),…
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.
