WWR is making our first watch – let’s make a chrono!

0

You’re one of our best-dressed, handsome readers. You have strong opinions about what looks good, what doesn’t, and what you’ll wear. You look like a million bucks, even if your watch doesn’t cost a million. We’re making a watch for you.

We’ve developed our watch tastes for the past 18 years (WWR, founded 2004), and have kept up telling you when something’s good, or not. Now we’re making a watch, and need you to tell us you’re on board for one.

WTAuthor’s Final Countdown watch is bold as hell

0

WTAuthor. A small, hand-made, hand-assembled watch shop in Shropshire, England. It all sounds so proper. It’s a lie. The WTAuthor Final Countdown watch is not a watch you wear when you’re invited to social functions.

Final Countdown is the watch you wear when you’re in your finest zebra stripe Lycra, crashing the fucking party. It’s badass, takes-no-prisoners, and doesn’t care that you don’t think it’s fit for polite society.

Introducing: Shinola Monster GMT

0

Long-time readers of WWR know that I’ve got a soft spot for watches that come from Shinola. They’ve got a number of nice designs, and their automatic movement Monster line have been very competent divers, and nicely sorted. What if you’re like me, and really enjoy a GMT complication? Well, Shinola has heard us, and just announced the Shinola Monster GMT.

Introducing: Seiko Presage Arita

0

As we’ve talked about on the Hourtime Podcast, Seiko is a brand that everyone knows about, but sometimes can have difficulty understanding how the brand segments its watches. I mean, we all had an inexpensive Seiko at some point (I’ve still got my OG Orange Monster), and then we have the rarified air of the Grand Seiko line. What if you want that legendary Seiko reliability, and some hints of the higher-end touches that GS does, at a price someone in the middle? Then the Seiko Presage Arita could be what you’re looking for.

Recently Released: Corum Admiral Automatic Grenadier fendu

Now, yes, the Corum Admiral is not particularly a new watch, as the model has been around for some time (I reviewed one about 4 years ago). So, what sets these new versions apart? For one, the colors, but more critically, the dials of these new Corum Admiral Automatic models have a unique design.

Introducing: Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage

0

Alpina is a brand that we tend to think of for aviation or just good all-around watches. Want something that gives you a diver? Then look no further than their Seastrong collection. If you want something that’s vintage-look, they’ve got you covered, particularly with a new all-green version of the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage.

Get fancied up with the Glashütte Original SeaQ

0

We know what you’re thinking – hasn’t the Glashütte Original SeaQ been around for a bit? Well, sure, it has, and it’s still a good-looking and quite capable dive watch. If you’re feeling the need to get a higher-end look to your standard summertime dive watch, look no further than the latest Glashütte Original SeaQ.

Recently Released: Hamilton Khaki Aviation Pioneer Mechanical Chronograph

0

In our article yesterday, we featured a watch that, while vintage-inspired, did not look out of place in a modern context. On the other hand, if you really like the look of designs from days gone by, but don’t want to have to worry about babying a vintage watch, brands can certainly cover you there. One of the more recent releases to do that is the Hamilton Khaki Aviation Pioneer Mechanical Chronograph.

Introducing: Citizen Promaster Mechanical Diver

1

Sometimes, when you’re looking for a dive watch inspired from history, you don’t want something that looks overly influenced by military applications, or the very unique styles that came out of the 1960s. If you instead want something that looks almost as contemporary today, then the new Citizen Promaster Mechanical Diver is what you need to be looking at.
