Grieb & Benzinger Creates A Market For Grey

Posted on 21 October 2013 by Patrick Kansa



I’ve featured a variety of watches on these pages that have made use of “recycled” vintage watch movements, breathing new life into something that would otherwise be destined for the back of a drawer or the smelting pot. Many of these are placed into competent, modern watches, hidden away under a dial. With the Grieb & Benzinger “Shades of Grey” (yes, probably riffing on that book title) lineup puts those restored movements front and center. Continue Reading

And Now, A Retrograde Quartz

Today’s post was originally intended to be a hands on review of a watch from the newer brand Antonius Graf Strachwitz (for brevity, referred to as AGS throughout). However, due to an unfortunate issue with customs, it looks like that hands-on review isn’t to be. That said, I think the piece has some interesting styling, so I still want to cover it today.

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?

Keeping Those Watches Safe

Posted on 18 September 2013 by Patrick Kansa



Have you given thought to how you protect your growing watch collection? Sure, if you only have a few, perhaps a nearby drawer will do. Then the collection may grow, and you start looking into things like watch boxes, or maybe creating your own custom solution using pick-n-pluck foam. But what if you’re getting into some really high-end pieces? Continue Reading

BZ ONE (6)

If you’ve been following my Historical Horology articles, you’re well aware that wrist watches have clocks in their family tree.  Up until recently, the firm Buben & Zorweg has been known as a creator of some rather high-end clocks.  Following in the path of tradition, they’ve now decided to create their own watch.

Kickstarting a High-End Watch?

Posted on 06 July 2013 by Patrick Kansa


Canopus Week Planner 01

We’ve seen a variety of Kickstarter projects cross these pages, thanks to the keen eye of our pal Matt. Most of those have fallen into the affordable end of the market, being driven by either quartz movements or Chinese-sourced automatics. Recently, though, a project (page) launched from A. Manzoni & Fils that’s headed to the luxury end of the market. Continue Reading
