Make your ceramic sporty with the Rado Captain Cook


When I think of Rado, I think of ceramic. They’ve been making some lovely pieces out of that high-tech material, but their creations have largely been in a dressier, or more refined, look and feel. In general, I’m fine with that, but they’ve recently expanded the material into something that’s definitely more sporty – the Rado Captain Cook.

A new calibre takes up home in the Ball Engineer M Pioneer


Someone in the Ball design department seems to have my number, as this new Ball Engineer M Pioneer has all of the things I like about their watches in one place. Or, maybe I’m just another sheep in the herd, and happen to like a lot of things other folks like. Regardless, there’s another new technical innovation hiding in this watch.

Just released: Swatch BioCeramic


Swatch is certainly no stranger to playing around with how they use plastics in the manufacture of their watches. They’ve done quite a bit with plastic and all the colors they’ve brought to wrists around the world.

Introducing the Q Timex Color Series


I don’t know that I’ll ever get tired of the Q Timex watches, these just feel like designs that get so much so right. Lately, I’m sure the automatic version of the M79 has gotten all the love, but I say there’s nothing wrong with having a solid quartz in your lineup, and we’ve got some brand-new colors coming in on the Q Timex Color series.

Arnold & Son: That’s (no) moon


Arnold & Son has released a new moon phase piece that is quite a stunner. The manual wind movement features a massive, rotating marble and glass moon in the middle of the face, allowing you to really, really, really tell the current moon phase at a glance.

It’s stunning.
