As we’ve been saying over the past few years, Timex really seems to have found their groove with coming up with some pretty sharp designs, the sort of watches that appeal to both casual folks, as well as those super into watches. Some of those highlights have come from their partnership with Todd Snyder, and we recently spent some time with their latest collaboration – the Timex + Todd Snyder MK1 Bootcamp.
If you’re not familiar with Long Island Watch, you really need to be. We’ve worked with them in the past with getting in some various loaners, so they can be a good source for stock watches. But are you aware that they’ve also branched out into their own designs? Recently, we spent some time with one of their latest, the Long Island Watch ISL-38.
One of the smaller brands that we’ve become closely acquainted with over the years now are the folks out in Kansas with a brand by the name of Raven. Before that name, you may have been familiar with them as Benarus. Regardless, over the last few years, Steve Laughlin has really honed in on his design aesthetic, as has been turning out some rather lovely pieces. One of the latest, which is up for pre-order now, is the Raven Airfield.
Over the last 10+ years, I’ve been fortunate to experience quite a number of different watch brands, and get to meet people (at least via email exchanges) from all over the world. One of the latest international travelers to cross my review desk calls Australia home. Friends, meet the Houtman Pilbara Rock.

Here in the States, it’s a long holiday weekend known as Labor Day Weekend. Rather than try to throw some half-baked articles at you, I decided instead to give you the gift of time.

It was 50 years ago that the airwaves were first greeted with the sight of people standing on a hillside, with the song “I’d like to teach the world to sing…” following closely after. Even though that commercial was created well before I landed in this world, I still can picture it in my mind (and if you can’t, we’ve embedded it below). Given how iconic that commercial was – for quite a long time – it’s no surprise that we’ve now got some watches looking to capture the hope of, if not that era, at least the commercial. Introducing the Timex x Coca-Cola Unity Collection.
I’ve been an interested observer of the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf line up, from when I first reviewed one (seen here), to them introducing a GMT movement into the lineup (I still really like the one I’m calling the G+T edition). Now, if you’re not a fan of all the bright colors, and want to present yourself as “serious world traveller person”, then perhaps the just-announced Zodiac Super Sea Wolf World Time is where you want to look.
As we saw a few weeks back, Oris likes teaming up with organizations making a positive change in the world, and particularly those that rely on aircraft to fulfill their mission. I mean, Oris is a aviation-derived watch company, after all. Their latest releases is renewing their partnership with Rega, the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Rega Fleet L.E.
