The CJR Airspeed Regulator

The CJR Airspeed Regulator watch launched on Kickstarter a short while ago, and so far, has raised over 93,000 US dollars. It’s powered by a Miyota 9015 movement. It’s got a really nice leather strap, sewn with cotton thread. I could tell you all these things, but none of that would tell you how cool a watch this is.

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.
