The Ripley Alien watch you don’t know about


Everyone is familiar with the Giugiaro Seiko chronograph worn by Sigourney Weaver in the role of Ellen Ripley. It’s a classic 1980s design and we love it. But what about the Casio F-100?

In Review: Farr + Swit Wayfinder


It’s hard to believe, but it’s actually been two years since we last looked at a watch from Farr + Swit (that time, it was the Seaplane). While the case looks to be mostly the same, the Farr + Swit Wayfinder is definitely charting it’s own course.

Kross is Space Jamming


It really seems that a number of watch brands have signed deals to create watches for the recently-released Space Jam movie. We’ve covered a few so far (here and here) that were definitely on the more affordable end of the spectrum. If you prefer your movie tie-ins to be very high-end, and come in a crazy display case, then the Kross Space Jam Tourbillon is, well, your jam.

Introducing: Benrus Wrist Alarm


UPDATE: As there questions around the authenticity of the movements contained in these watches, Benrus has stopped selling this watch and are investigating what happened.

It’s one thing for a brand – whether it’s newly resurrected or not – to dive back into their catalog to reproduce a watch from the past. It’s another thing entirely to not only revive an old design, but to ALSO find a cache of NOS movements to really bring a vintage vibe to a watch. Well, that’s exactly what has happened with the Benrus Wrist Alarm.

Now Funding: DWISS Floating Hours


DWISS has created a number of different watches, and they’re making changes – as of late – within their existing lines. The latest one to get this treatment is their Racing line, which brings us to the DWISS Floating Hours, aka the DWISS R2.

Now Funding: Atowak Ettore Drift


Often, watches that show up on Kickstarter are just a tired retread of things that came before. It’s one thing to draw inspiration from the big brands, but to just flat out copy them (or even copy the littler brands) that’s just not what we’re here for. However, if you can bring something that reminds me of an Urwerk or MB&F? Then you’ve got my attention – and that’s the Atowak Ettore Drift, for sure.

Final days of Funding: Roebuck Scuba


Hey, remember the Roebuck Scuba that we reviewed a little bit ago? Well, right now, the Kickstarter campaign has just 5 days left to go, so if you were thinking of backing the project, now is the time to do it! campaign page

Introducing: the Undone Space Jam collection


A little over a week ago, we brought you the first Space Jam watch collaboration we saw; today, we’ve got another one to talk about. This time around, it’s the crew over at Undone bringing two models to us, one limited and the other with some customization options.

In Review: Dream Arcades Magic Arcade


I’m in love. The Dream Arcades Magic Arcade is that good. It’s a $999 DIY arcade cabinet with two controllers and a rollerball that can play any game ever, within reason. It is a font of joy, a source of fun, and it’s a great product from folks who have been building these things for years.

Yeah. You can say I’m stoked.
