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.

Now Funding: Luxury Watch Rolls Travel Cases

0

A small startup called Luxury Watch Rolls is crowdfunding some interesting-looking travel cases for your tickers. Priced at $95 for a single slot model the cases are made of leather and have a soft internal structure and ingenious watch mounting system.

The cases come in multiple sizes including a three-watch model for folks who can’t leave their house without dragging a half-dozen watches with them.

From the site:

The innovative luxury design of our watch rolls allow watches to be stored in a high quality, entirely handcrafted roll. The exterior of the watch roll is made of Italian vegetable-tanned leather, and each edge is hand oil painted in the French style. The use of this style of edge finishing removes the possibility of frayed edging providing the highest durability. The contrasting deep brown interior of the watch roll is the softest material for maximum protection against scratches. Each watch pillow is removable on a sliding rail for easy access (with no metal snaps to risk damaging your watch). Each pillow has it’s own individual compartment inside the watch roll, with sturdy fixed separators providing the greatest protection against damage. The watch roll has a flat base to prevent unintentional rolling or tipping.

The double slot unit costs $126 while the three-slot unit costs $156. It’s a bit pricey but don’t your watches deserve first-class travel too?

Introducing: Triwa Summer Breeze

0

By now, we hope you’re familiar with the Triwa Time for Oceans line, as we’ve written about it a few times now (if not, check out this article). Just recently, they launched a new pair of watches into their line, known as the Triwa Summer Breeze Turtle and Orca.

In Review: Q Timex GMT

0

Last month, we brought you word of the latest Q Timex release that featured my favorite complication, a GMT hand (you can read about that here). As fortune would have it, we’ve been able to spend some time with this release, so we’ve got a hands-on review of the newest Q Timex GMT.

In Review: Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Skin

0

Now, we’ve reviewed a number of Zodiac watches over the past few years, but today’s review marks something different. In the past, their releases were rather limited numbers, and once they were sold, they were gone. To address the interest, there’s a new “Core” lineup that is being introduced, containing watches that should be more broadly available. The first watch we’ve seen from this new range is the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Skin.

WTAuthor’s Final Countdown watch is bold as hell

0

WTAuthor. A small, hand-made, hand-assembled watch shop in Shropshire, England. It all sounds so proper. It’s a lie. The WTAuthor Final Countdown watch is not a watch you wear when you’re invited to social functions.

Final Countdown is the watch you wear when you’re in your finest zebra stripe Lycra, crashing the fucking party. It’s badass, takes-no-prisoners, and doesn’t care that you don’t think it’s fit for polite society.

Introducing: Shinola Monster GMT

0

Long-time readers of WWR know that I’ve got a soft spot for watches that come from Shinola. They’ve got a number of nice designs, and their automatic movement Monster line have been very competent divers, and nicely sorted. What if you’re like me, and really enjoy a GMT complication? Well, Shinola has heard us, and just announced the Shinola Monster GMT.

Introducing: Seiko Presage Arita

0

As we’ve talked about on the Hourtime Podcast, Seiko is a brand that everyone knows about, but sometimes can have difficulty understanding how the brand segments its watches. I mean, we all had an inexpensive Seiko at some point (I’ve still got my OG Orange Monster), and then we have the rarified air of the Grand Seiko line. What if you want that legendary Seiko reliability, and some hints of the higher-end touches that GS does, at a price someone in the middle? Then the Seiko Presage Arita could be what you’re looking for.

Recently Released: Corum Admiral Automatic Grenadier fendu

0

Now, yes, the Corum Admiral is not particularly a new watch, as the model has been around for some time (I reviewed one about 4 years ago). So, what sets these new versions apart? For one, the colors, but more critically, the dials of these new Corum Admiral Automatic models have a unique design.

Introducing: Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage

0

Alpina is a brand that we tend to think of for aviation or just good all-around watches. Want something that gives you a diver? Then look no further than their Seastrong collection. If you want something that’s vintage-look, they’ve got you covered, particularly with a new all-green version of the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage.
