As Obi-Wan may have been tempted to say: “Helson – now there’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time.” That’s because it’s been almost 9 years since we last talked about the brand. Doesn’t mean that they’ve closed up shop or have stopped producing watches – quite the contrary. In fact, they just recently released a new watch, the Helson Shark Diver 38 Brass.
New from Timex: a Space Invaders-themed T80 that, at just $89, could make a great gift for the old school gamer in your life. Hopefully my friends are reading.
Recently, Lum-Tec sent out information on their new models for 2022. While there are four lines being introduced (or updated), there are two that I want to focus in on today – their solar line, and their Combat B line.
Obris Morgan is a brand that I became familiar with back when I first started writing for WWR. Just as I like to think that I’ve come along in the intervening years, so has Obris Morgan. At the end of last year, they introduced their latest watch, the Obris Morgan Port.
Tot el camp (plam plam plam) és un clam (plam plam plam), som la gent blau-grana!
I bet you didn’t expect to see the opening words of the FC Barcelona theme song here on WristWatchReview, but then again I never expected the team to partner with Casio for the creation of a limited edition, $230 G-Shock, formally known as the G-SHOCK x MATCHDAY GBD100BAR-4.
Back over the summer, we brought you word that Tom Ford was getting into using recycled ocean plastic for one of their watch designs. That was a fairly basic three-hander that certainly got the job done. However, if you want something that looks and feels a bit more robust, then the recently announced Tom Ford Ocean Plastic Sport should have your ears perking up.
It’s Monday, you know what that means: another exciting edition of The HourTime Show, the official podcast of WristWatchReview.com! Stay awhile, and listen.
Back in December, Tockr released a watch in commemoration of the new Amazon show Wheel of Time. Well, to be fair, the show is new but the story not so much, as it’s based on the books by Robert Jordan. For the watch, that’s most prominently shown by the luminous snake motif. For the next few days, you’ve got a chance to win one of your own.
When Freddie Palmgren, the man behind SÖNER, asked for a bluntly honest review of his watch, I wasn’t sure that’s what he really wanted. Most of his watches had been quartz-powered, large, and tank shaped. Basically, in a world of round watches, that are returning to more middle-ground sizes, Freddie went the opposite direction. This is his first mechanical-powered watch, using the Miyota 9039 no-date movement. And it’s not wrong. This is the SÖNER MOMENTUM.
As we all know Timex are known for their collaborations and today I give you there two latest collaborations, the Timex x Huckberry Navi XL Automatic and the Timex X Patta. Both are designed for those who like exploring the great outdoors but while I think one is an absolute bargain, the other left me wondering “what if?”
