Introducing the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 3

April 24, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Today, we are in a bit of an odd situation. Here at WWR, we like to tell you about watches that are currently available, or will be available soon. Well, with the recent launch of the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 3, we’re breaking that mold a bit. You see, with the Iconik series, MWW only…

Introducing the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Jumping Hour

April 20, 2017 . by Jim Manley

The Malvern Massacre continues, and this time it’s personal. No watch will be spared in Christopher Ward’s march to modernity; their jumping hour timepiece is the next to undergo a makeover inspired by the C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve. The old C9 Jumping Hour MKIII is one of my personal favorites (which I’m coincidentally wearing…

I do not remember when I first came across Canadian brand Halios, but I do remember being struck by their Tropik line of watches.  They’ve had a few different iterations, but the one that has stuck with me was the white-dialed version.  They’re just-announced watches – the Halios Seaforth – seem like they might be…

I’ve written about the NTH Submariner homage watches by Chris “Doc” Vail before, and also talked about his Tropics compressor style watches again. Doc is back at it with a new set of Sub case watches. The original run of NTH Subs paid homage to early Submariners and Tudor divers, picking out key elements of…
