Introducing the Momentum Atlas 38

Warm weather is here, which means a lot of us are going to be spending a lot more time in the outdoors. If you are looking for a great watch to accompany you, the military-esque styling of a field watch is certainly a solid look to go for. To that end, the newly announced (and quite affordable) Momentum Atlas 38 is something you may consider.

Scaling Heights with the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon

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.

Introducing the Meerson D15

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.

The August 2015 Giveaway: Titan Edge

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.

The Shinola Black Blizzard Review

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.

Hands-On Review of the Tempest Commodore

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.
