Not that we’d need a special occasion to don a square, but Casio has just announced a limited edition G-Shock DW5600 that commemorates the 40th anniversary of the first Space Shuttle launch.

Baltic bring the compressor to the surface with the Aquascaphe Dual-Crown


Baltic have made some very nice watches over the past few years. They’re best characterized as tasteful, traditional watches with modern quality. So far, they’ve made dress watches, dive watches, a GMT, and a two register chronograph.

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.

The Vesuviate Attivo is live on Kickstarter


Just a quick reminder – remember that Vesuviate Attivo we reviewed a little bit ago? Well, it’s live over on Kickstarter (has been for a bit), so you can pop over there and get your own before things close up on April 29th.

Now Funding: WT Author 1973


It’s been many a month since we’ve had WT Author on our pages. When they were starting up, we actually went through a number of their watches (1904, 1914, 1929) before we took a break. Well, as you can tell from that lineup, they’ve been bringing their watch design through the decades, and time marches ever forward. Now, they’ve launched the latest – the WT Author 1973 – on Kickstarter.

Tudor watch updates Black Bay with precious metals, new chrono models, and more


Tudor, the brand that likes to bill themselves as the “affordable subsidiary of Rolex”, has launched 5 variations of existing models. To the surprise of exactly no one, they are all named “Black Bay”.

Introducing the Timex Q 1978


Aside from all of their Peanuts collaborations (like this one) and the broader Marlin lineup, I think where we’re seeing the heat in the Timex lineup is in their Q lineup. While the bi-color bezel ones get the attention, there are some other really nice re-issues coming along, such as the Timex Q 1978.

Tudor Watch completely screwed up their launch, site offline for over an hour


I know, it’s not nice to kick someone when they’re down. I am truly sorry for the web admin that has to work on Tudorwatch.com. The site was down for 1 hour and 30 minutes. What happened?

Rolex 2021 Explorer 1 – back in its original size at 36mm


Rolex announced their 2021 models online this year, instead of at an event like Baselworld. The big news is, the Rolex Explorer 1, which has been 39mm since about 2005, is now available again in its original 36mm size.

Introducing the Tutima Flieger Slate Grey


When spring rolls around, we tend to think about getting more colorful. Partly this is because we’re coming out of the monochrome of winter, but it can also be done to offset the dreariness that springtime can bring with cloudy skies overhead (or is that just a Midwest thing)? That said, I find grey to be a universal color – much like black, it just goes with everything, just a bit more subtly. If you agree with me, then the new Tutima Flieger Slate Grey is worth noting.
