I spend an inordinate amount of time cruising the #watches tag on Instagram, and if there’s one type of dial that I don’t see too often it’s the railroad dial. Perhaps this latest release from Accutron can help change that.

Introducing the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3


Say, friend – you just ordered up your new Porsche 911 GT3, and are just now realizing that your watch isn’t quite up to the standards of what you configured with your new road rocket? Bemoan no more, because you can now get your own watch – customized and matched to your car – in the form of the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3.

Introducing the Timex Marlin Beagle Scout


It’s starting to feel – to me – like Timex has come to terms with the platform they’ve got with the Marlin Automatic lineup, and have been customizing it for some interesting looks. We reviewed a California dial version recently, and now they’ve come out with one extending their Peanuts lineup, the Timex Marlin Beagle Scout.

Introducing the Triwa Time For Peace 2.0


I’ve long been a fan of how Triwa utilizes interesting materials in the construction of their watches. More often than not, those take the form of non-metallic things, like acetate and plastics. They do have a very special metal-cased watch in the collection, and now a new one has joined in.

The three amigos of The HourTime Show are back this week! On the docket: How many watches you need to be a true “watchhead” and what, exactly, is watch journalism, anyway.

Going Green with the Aquatico Sea Star V2


I have done quite a few Aquatico watch reviews which you can see here. As of yet I have not been disappointed. This new Aquatico Sea Star V2 just came in the mail and it was green, Vintage green. At first I wasn’t sure about the color but it quickly grew on me. The more time I spent with it the more I liked it. Read on and see how you feel.

Introducing the Grand Seiko “White Birch”


To be perfectly clear, that is not the name Grand Seiko has given the watch – instead, they prefer to call it the Grand Seiko SLGH005. While I admire the artistry and total dedication to superb finishing in their watches, GS doesn’t give near as much love to naming them. Hence, me calling it the White Birch.

Hodinkee acquires Crown and Caliber continuing to amass their empire


Hodinkee has acquired Crown and Caliber, an online wrist watch retailer.

Hodinkee began life in 2008 as a wristwatch blog much like our own. (We started in 2004.) They developed into a retailer, selling neckties, pocket squares, and eventually, wristwatches.

Crown and Caliber has always sold pre-owned luxury wristwatches. But there’s more to this acquisition than meets the eye.

Rolex wants to take a microbrand’s trademark


Kiger, a watch micro brand made by Mark Kiger is the David in a David vs Goliath battle with one of the biggest Swiss watch brands you know: Rolex.

Why would Rolex pick on a small-time watch guy with just one watch model for sale? Because they want his trademark.

Funding Soon: the Iridium Torpedo


It was a little over a year ago that we brought you word of a new watch from Audric. Product cycles being what they are, they forged through the pandemic problems, and are now ready to introduce a new watch shortly – and a new sub-brand while they’re at it. This all takes shape in the Iridium Torpedo.
