You know who we have not had on our pages in some time? Fossil, that’s who. While they are ostensibly a more fashion-oriented brand, they do offer a large variety of styles at rather affordable price points. Today, we have a hands-on look at a watch they consider to be in their dressier collection, the Fossil Machine.
We here at WWR are fans of seeing watch startups kicking off here in the ‘States, and I have personally had an enjoyable time getting to know the guys behind Smith & Bradley, as well as the watches they are creating downstate from me. Just a little bit ago, we brought you a breakdown of what was going on with their upgraded Atlantis, which already had quite a few options to choose from. Now, you have the ability to create your own Smith & Bradley custom Atlantis (originally reviewed here).
Christopher Ward gets a fair bit of love here at WWR, mainly because they produce high quality, attractive watches at affordable price points. Now in their 10th year, the company is updating their line of dive watches, the Christopher Ward Trident Collection. The new collection offers four choices of movements, along with a number of other improvements and two case sizes.
When it comes to watches, I have honed my own personal preferences down over the last few years. When it comes to case sizing, I tend to prefer something that falls under 44mm; when we are talking about complications, a GMT hand has become one of my favorites. The combination of those two items really is not a rare thing, but it is nice when they come together in a clean, legible package. That is exactly what we have in today’s review of the Butler Professional Series GMT.
Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind.
Today’s watch, on the other hand, was a bit of a “shock to the system” you might say. The Titan Edge is by far the lightest and thinnest watch I have ever worn.
If you’re even passingly familiar with my writing on watches, you’ll know that I’ve really been drawn to GMT watches over the past year or so. Add in the fact that I like showcasing good, affordable watches here on WWR, and our latest review on a Torgoen watch really clicks on a few different levels.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at some more watches from the new brand AVI-8. In our last review on an AVI-8 piece, we covered their background, so we won’t need to rehash that here. Instead, we’ll jump right on in to the review. Well, actually, it will be three reviews in one, as we’ve got three different models from their Hawker Harrier II lineup on-hand.
