While there are a few brands that have leaned into watches made from ocean plastic, it’s just a single model most often. Just recently, Tom Ford released their second model (we covered the prior ones here) that embraces the recycled plastic taken from the oceans. Meet the Tom Ford N.004.
When it comes to a watch to head into the outdoors with, there are a number of smartwatches you could go with, or you could opt for a no-nonsense digital watch to keep things simple. If you feel like you need something that’s somewhere in-between, it would be hard to argue against the Protrek lineup. Just recently, they released another model that relies on bioplastics, the Casio Protrek PRG340.
While I’ve been known to enjoy many a different comic book character, show, or movie, I’ve always leaned a bit more towards DC. While Batman is where I put the #1 tag, the whole of the Justice League has some interesting folks. Well, ok, Aquaman has always felt a little underwhelming, at least until we got Jason Momoa’s interpretation of the character. While I’m not sure what sort of watch Arthur Curry would actually want or need, the Undone Aquaman does look like it could get the job done.
A few weeks ago, we brought you word of the latest collaboration between Jeff Staple and Fossil (you can read about that here). Since the time we wrote that, we’ve been spending some time with this funky automatic holographic sundial watch. Read on for what the Staple x Fossil has in store for you.
Recently, another new model hit the moVas website – the moVas Bronze Diver II. This is, as you might correctly guess, an update to their prior Bronze Diver. While there is a lot to like about this large bronze diver, it seems to us that the dial is the clear start of the show.
Continuing the theme of collaborations that we’ve been seeing this year, we’ve been told about another one that brings together two Danish brands – Soulland and Skagen. Soulland is a fashion brand, and this collaboration design was on the runway at the fall 2022 Copenhagen Fashion Week. Meet the Soulland x Skagen Grenen.
As with most anything, there are a wide variety of designs available for you to choose from in the watch world. Not only that, you’ve got new stuff, more recent but still pre-owned, as well as stuff that is properly considered vintage. While those older looks can be timeless, there’s something to be said about modern manufacturing techniques, as well as movement reliability and accuracy. In that regard, the Szanto Heritage Aviator gives you the best of both of those worlds.
Benrus has long been synonymous with “field watches,” basic tool watches with an absolute focus on legibility and durability. We looked at their Type II a few weeks ago and now we got the watch in our hot little hands and I’m pleased to report that it’s a solid and striking field watch with enough history to warrant a second look.
When we reviewed the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander after it’s release (which you can see here), I was particularly taken with the compact GMT (and there are other complications available as well). While I found the 39mm to be quite comfortable on the wrist, you may prefer something a bit more compact on your wrist. If that’s you, then you’ll want to check out the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander 36mm.
