Hands-on with the Filson Dutch Harbor

Back in March, we brought you word of the newest watch from the Filson and Shinola collaboration, the Filson Dutch Harbor. In that overview, I felt the watch was a slick take on a dive watch. How does that impression hold up now that I have spent some time with the Filson Dutch Harbor on the wrist? Let’s dive in and have a look.

Introducing the Greyhours Essential Collection

As you might imagine, we here at WWR are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to what we are going to cover. While a lot of it comes from relationships we’ve established with brands, some true surprises come out of a cold contact from a brand that we’ve not heard of. One of these recently came in from Hong Kong, in the form of the Greyhours Essential collection.

At last – hands-on with the WT Author 1905

WT Author is one of those brands that I’ve been pleasantly surprised to run across. They have been creating watches unlike what we had seen prior (at least in the modern era of watches), and they have an overarching plan (and timeline) for how their total collection will play out. We saw it start off with the WT Author 1905 (link), then move on to the 1914 (link), and most recently, the 1929 (link). While we had been able to provide hands-on impressions of the latter two models, that first had been limited to just the pictures we had seen, and viewing it through the lens of the design cues that carried forward onto the subsequent models. As fortune would have it, we were able to work with WT Author to have a WT Author 1905 sent over, so let’s travel back in time and have a look at what it offers.
