WWR is making our first watch – let’s make a chrono!

0

You’re one of our best-dressed, handsome readers. You have strong opinions about what looks good, what doesn’t, and what you’ll wear. You look like a million bucks, even if your watch doesn’t cost a million. We’re making a watch for you.

We’ve developed our watch tastes for the past 18 years (WWR, founded 2004), and have kept up telling you when something’s good, or not. Now we’re making a watch, and need you to tell us you’re on board for one.

Recently released: Frederique Constant Highlife Chronograph

Now you’re living the High Life. That’s what one beer brand would have us believe, and now you can fully embrace that with a new addition to the Frederique Constant Highlife collection. No, they’ve not paired up with Miller to create a new watch (but, why not?). Instead they’ve introduced a new complication to the collection with the Frederique Constant Highlife Chronograph.

01 733 7766 4187-Set - New York Harbor Limited Edition

As we’ve seen over the last year or two, Oris has really leaned into supporting causes that support various initiatives, particularly those of an ecological sort that focus on our waterways. Their latest watch supports efforts to clean up the water in New York Harbor – the Oris Aquis New York Harbor LE.

For the footie fans: Christopher Ward X Everton

0

Well, there aren’t any Everton-themed watches just as of yet, but we have to imagine that’s just a matter of time. While most of America feels that football is a game with an elongated brown ball, most of the rest of the world views football as a white-and-black ball (aka soccer). A few days ago, British watch brand Christopher Ward became the official timing partner of the Everton Football Club.

Recently released: a bevy of new Tissot PRX models

What do you do when you’ve got a successful (and iconic in it’s own way) watch design out there? Aside from continuing to produce more of the same, that is? You figure out how to do a remix and expand the family, that’s what you do. At least, that’s what Tissot recently did with their PRX line.

As we’ve become more acquainted with Zodiac watches (you can see all our reviews of them here) as well as what they’re targeting to do as a watch company (which we covered in this review), we cannot help but to like what they’re doing, and the full embrace of their “vintage” design cues. While they had introduced a professional diver not that long ago, another is being released on June 24th that turns the dial up to 11 – meet the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro Diver Titanium LE.

Partnerships seem to be all the rage in the last year or two. By pairing up with another popular brand, it’s a way to inject some fresh excitement into an existing watch design. The latest to capitalize on this is the Maui & Sons X Fossil release of two different watches.

The Corum Bubble Skull X-Ray gets inside your head

0

Corum is a weird company. They have a few very definitive watches – the Bubble being their biggest seller – but this time they seem to have gone off the deep end. The Corum Bubble Skull X-Ray is a rehash of Corum’s original Bubble watch with a twist – it displays the glowing X-ray of a human skull through the big and bold crystal.

In review: Aquatico Poseidon Blue Ceramic diver

0

Over the past few years, I have reviewed several Aquatico watches. So far, none of them have disappointed me, which means I’m always up for checking out their new stuff. Being a diver I don’t just like the look of a good dive watch, I also want one that I can actually use for its intended purpose. The vintage no nonsense look of the Aquatico Poseidon really appealed to me, and I was able to get one in for review.

Recently Released: Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda

As of late, we have seen no shortage of recycled materials showing up in watches. A majority of those have featured recycled ocean plastic in cases and straps, and a few have snuck in with some recycled metal components. Well, Alpina is upping their commitment in that area with the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda.

01 733 7730 4158-07 8 24 05PEB - Aquis Date

We’re fans of the watches that Oris produces, especially as many seem to just pass by them when considering a new watch. The Oris Aquis Date is one of their most approachable – and versatile – pieces, and they’ve just introduced some new colors to the family.
