You know it’s that time of year where any number of brands are coming up with deals and discounts to entice you to pick up their wares. Rather than dedicate an article to each and every one, we’ll put them all in this one spot, so you’ve just got one page to check; we’ll add to it as we come across others.
Cheers from all of us at WristWatchReview. Thanks for reading us, thanks for hanging with us, and thanks for being the nicest group of watch lovers on the Internet. All the best to you and yours from Joanna, Victor, John, Patrick, and Nicholas.
While many companies are talking to you about all their sales and discounts that they’ve got coming up this Friday, Shinola is going in a slightly different direction. They’re releasing a limited-edition version of one of their chronographs, the Shinola Canfield Speedway Lap 03.
While I was fairly certain I had reviewed a SevenFriday before, it took some digging. Turns out, it’s been over eight years! Since then, the brand has kept on producing their watches, hewing closely to that formula that we first saw 8+ years ago, not that long after the brand started out. Still, when we had a chance to get a loaner in of their latest – the SevenFriday Caipi – it was easy to say yes.
As an older nerd, the Grid 4S hits all kinds of sweet spots. Created by Grid Studios, the Grid 4S is part of their Grid Tech series which consists of framed gadgets that have been blown up to show all of the parts inside our favorite gear. The model I received, the Grid 4S, is a blown up iPhone 4S and it’s really cool.
When it comes to smoking paraphernalia there are two aesthetics. The first is He-Man Zippo Soldier gear that looks like part of the Terminator’s spleen and the other is hippie-infused, patchouli stuff that looks like it’s part of Jerry Garcia’s.
You know Berd Vay’e, right? I mean, you should, as we’ve covered them a decent amount. Simply put, they take old watch movement parts, clean them up, and then place them carefully into some clever, clear sculptures. I’m partial to their “Borg Cube” models (officially called Galaxy or Time Squared), but their latest collection should be of particular interest to the The Queen’s Gambit crew – the Berd Vay’e Checkmate.
On a sun-bright tarmac in the middle of Dallas a set of four classic fighter planes idled under a late-Fall sky that was nearly severe clear but studded with small clouds. This was the launch of Breitling’s new Super AVI line, watches styled to recollect the P51 Mustang, the Vought F4U Corsair, the Curtiss Warhawk, and the de Havilland Mosquito. These small and light warplanes once dotted the sky over Berlin and Normandy and now they’re collectors items, flown by men and women who strive to keep their unique memories alive. These watches, a set of four unique pieces, were built to continue that tradition.
If you recall, not that long ago we told you about the Kickstarter campaign for the Yonger & Bresson Le Singulier (you can see that here). That campaign exceeded it’s funding goal (and there was a brief Indiegogo InDemand campaign after), so these are watches that should be getting onto peoples wrists. We recently spent some time with the watch, and are here to give you our thoughts on the Yonger & Bresson Le Singulier.
Earlier this month, Swatch launched their collaboration with Peanuts – perfect timing, set as it is in the midst of when we start seeing the Peanuts specials airing on TV. My oldest kid has been super into Peanuts for as long as we can remember, so I was rather interested to see this launch announced.
