Bell & Ross has two new limited edition chronos produced for lifestyle pubs The Rake and Revolution that caught our eye today. Based on the 40mm Bellytanker, they’re named after the negroni (red) and spritz (orange) cocktails that, with any luck, we’ll be able to enjoy with friends again sooner rather than later.

Introducing the Triwa Ocean Plastic Sub

0

I’ve long been a fan of Triwa for their approach to taking classic designs, tweaking things a bit, and then applying their experience and mastery with plastics to come up with some sharp looking pieces. As of late, they’ve been working with recycled ocean plastic, and we’ve featured those before (here and here). Well, now they’re back with a design that’s intended to let you go back into those oceans – the Triwa Ocean Plastic Sub.

In Review: Tutima M2 Coastline Chronograph

0

Long-time readers of WWR by now know that I’m probably the most chronograph-averse person on the team here. While I appreciate the sheer mechanical wizardry that goes into the movement, it’s something that I just simply do not have a good use case for in my day-to-day life (much in the same way I’m not much for smart watches past workout tracking). Even so, Tutima keeps working on me, and I recently got to spend some time with the Tutima M2 Coastline Chronograph.

We’re generally big fans of Grand Seiko (and plain old Seiko) round these parts, which makes today a good day. That’s because there’s not one, not two, but three new 40mm Grand Seiko GMTs that were just announced, powered by the brand’s highly accurate 9F86 quartz movement.

In Review: Swatch Big Bold Jelly

0

While I know that Swatch – as a corporation – encompasses a wide variety of brands and watch styles, when I actually hear “Swatch”, it calls to mind brightly-colored, plastic-encased watches. That’s because they were all the rage back in my junior high days. Yeah, the digital Ironman watches were popular as well, but those bright Swatches were all the rage. Well, I’ve recently been spending some time with one that is that memory writ large – the Swatch Big Bold Jelly.

Introducing: Citizen Promaster Aqualand

0

For most of us, I’m going to venture to say that dive watches are something we appreciate more for the style and ruggedness, and not necessarily so much for, you know, actual diving. There are folks who do use them for their intended design, and since 1985, the Citizen Promaster Aqualand has been doing it in a way that automatically knows when you’re in the water and switches to depth tracking mode.

Welcome back to The HourTime Show, the official podcast of WristWatchReview.com. John, the patriarch of the program, is unfortunately out sick this week so that leaves it to Victor and Nicholas to steer the pod.

Accutron’s Latest Legacy Collection Release Harkens Back to the TV Age

In the Olden Days, before streaming took over the world, folks would gather around a gadget called a television to watch linear programming delivered over the air. That may seem somewhat quaint now that we all own mobile supercomputers that can display basically anything on demand, but TV was a Big Deal–and Accutron was there, with its 261 aka the “TV Watch.”

Casio drops a chromed titanium G-Shock

0

I bet none of us had a $1,700 G-Shock on our 2021 Bingo Cards, but here we are. The new Casio GMWB5000TR-9 is a watch that uses a new type of titanium called “Tran Tixxii,” “jointly developed over a six-year period by Casio and Nippon Steel Corporation.”

In Review: Roebuck Scuba

0

Hey, so you all remember Roebuck, right? Sure, the name is pretty synonymous (at least in my mind) with the Sears & Roebuck catalog, but it’s also the name of a watch brand that calls Texas home. We reviewed their prior models, the aptly-named Alpha and sophmore effort, the Diviso. Well, just as with the Diviso, we got the Roebuck Scuba well in advance of it’s Kickstarter launch. That’s right – you can’t buy this yet, but will be able to in a few months.
