In Review: Shinola Detrola Sea Creatures

0

Back in June, we brought you word about the latest entry into the Shinola Detrola lineup, featuring materials made from recycled ocean plastic courtesy of the crew over at #tide. As we talked to the brand about the watch, we realized that the Detrola line was one we’d not actually seen in person. So, in came a loaner of the Shinola Detrola Sea Creatures.

In Review: UNDONE X STAPLE

0

Early last month, we brought you word of a collaboration between UNDONE and STAPLE. On paper, it seems to make sense, as UNDONE is all about customized watches, and Jeff Staple got his start customizing sneakers. Not being a sneakerhead myself, I was still intrigued by the design. As we do, we got a sample in of the UNDONE X STAPLE, and have been spending time with it.

The Ripley Alien watch you don’t know about

0

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

0

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

0

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

0

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

0

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.
