Whenever a new iteration of the Christopher Ward C60 is introduced, I pay rather close attention. This is because the Trident was one of the first watches from the brand…
Over the past few years, I have had the pleasure of sampling a variety of different watches from Ball, with quite a few different styles in play. For all of that variety, I had yet to go hands-on with anything from their Engineer line (Engineer II, yes, but not Engineer). Well, we saw fit to rectify that particular oversight, and got to spend some time with the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon.
While we here at WWR like to primarily feature watches that fall into the affordable category, we do take the occasional foray into the world of higher-end, or luxury, watches when one catches our eye. It is interesting to see how brands that make up that higher end segment differentiate their products from the other end of the spectrum, which often takes the form of higher-end materials and different movements than we might expect to see; that is what we have here with the Meerson D15.
Whatever watch it is that we bring in for review, we always make sure to run down the “hard specs” on a watch. This includes the physical dimensions of the watch, as well as its weight. For our August 2015 Giveaway, we will be giving away the lightest (at 36g) and thinnest watch (< 4mm) watch I have ever reviewed - the Titan Edge.
Titanium seems to be a popular material for watches these days. At least, that is, for watches that have been crossing my desk. As we saw with the Tempest Commodore, titanium helps cut down the weight of a watch while still offering strength and durability. Today, we’ll take a look at another one that leverages those attributes, the Shinola Black Blizzard.
When it comes to dive watches, the past few years have seen an explosion of brands offering very competent and well-designed pieces, often times powered by Japanese automatic movements. Tempest is one of those brands, and they first caught my eye with the high-domed Viking. Today, we are taking a look at their latest offering, the Tempest Commodore.
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.
Christopher Ward is a brand that certainly needs no introduction to readers of this site. We have long been fans of their affordable styles, and have followed with interest their forays into some higher-end models, and variants of existing models. Today, we have one of those variants for you – the new Christopher Ward C11 Titanium Extreme 1000.
