If you are not already a member of Touch of Modern, you really should join up. It is a site that highlights cool designs, furnishings, clothes and toys, and offers them on sale for a few days. There is new stuff on the site every day, and the sales only last for a couple of days. We have highlighted a number of watch realted sales on the site, and I found three recent ones that I thought were worth mentioning. Tavannes Watch Company has three versions of their skeleton watch up for sale; Catorex has 18 Swiss watches and pocketwatches on the site; and Rapport of London is selling a variety of watch winders and display/storage cases.

Just quick note here – I saw today over on Touch of Modern that they’ve got a sale going on a variety of Egard models, including the Passages which I wrote about here. They’re a young brand, but in the conversations I’ve had with them, they’re growing and adapting. You can see some of our hands-on reviews here (none of these show up in the sale, however).

Touch of Modern, a web site that I like to browse and where we point readers from time to time is running a limited time sale of Swiss dive watches from Squale Watches. The watches range from the basic diver, the Atmos (below), to a vintage Tiger (above) from the 70s/80s that has been rebuilt housing an ETA 2892 movement, new hands, new gaskets, and a new rubber strap.
All the watches house Swiss automatic movements, either the ETA 2824-2, the Valjoux 7750 in the two chronographs offered, or the custom built Swiss movement in the Master Steel watch (below) with a 600M depth rating and power reserve indicator, along with a unique locking bi-directional bezel.
Prices range from $649 for the Atmos with 50oM of water resistance to $999 from the chronographs with screw down pushes are 200M of water resistance to $1,999.99 for the Master Steel, limited to a production of 600 pieces. Check out their web site if you want more information on Squale Watches. From some quick research, the ToM deal gives a discount of at least a couple $100 over internet retailers. The sale ends at noon, Pacific, on Saturday, June 8, and less than 12 hours in there are already a few watches with fewer than 5 available. touchofmodern.com

We’ve covered a few different Refined Hardware models here on WWR (see Gatsby and Robber Baron). Through those, we’ve seen that’s there’s definitely a design DNA running through the brand, something that I took to calling an industrial aesthetic. While there certainly were similarities in the pieces, they did have their own unique twists, and we see that showing up in the Refined Hardware Atlas. Continue Reading

I’ve covered some Android USA watches in the past (here and here), but those were from before the whole smart watch segment really started to get some traction. Well, all the big new is the Android Wear, but that doesn’t mean that Android USA (not affiliated with Google) doesn’t have something in the segment. Continue Reading
