Accutron’s Latest Legacy Collection Release Harkens Back to the TV Age

In the Olden Days, before streaming took over the world, folks would gather around a gadget called a television to watch linear programming delivered over the air. That may seem somewhat quaint now that we all own mobile supercomputers that can display basically anything on demand, but TV was a Big Deal–and Accutron was there, with its 261 aka the “TV Watch.”

Casio drops a chromed titanium G-Shock


I bet none of us had a $1,700 G-Shock on our 2021 Bingo Cards, but here we are. The new Casio GMWB5000TR-9 is a watch that uses a new type of titanium called “Tran Tixxii,” “jointly developed over a six-year period by Casio and Nippon Steel Corporation.”

In Review: Roebuck Scuba


Hey, so you all remember Roebuck, right? Sure, the name is pretty synonymous (at least in my mind) with the Sears & Roebuck catalog, but it’s also the name of a watch brand that calls Texas home. We reviewed their prior models, the aptly-named Alpha and sophmore effort, the Diviso. Well, just as with the Diviso, we got the Roebuck Scuba well in advance of it’s Kickstarter launch. That’s right – you can’t buy this yet, but will be able to in a few months.

Now Funding: Redux & Co Titanium Watches


Now, I can’t say as I’m overly familiar with Redux & Co (I mean, it’s been over 5 years since Matt wrote about them last), but there’s something to be said about a brand coming gunning right out of the gate. You generally see one watch with some variants in a Kickstarter campaign. That wasn’t enough for Redux & Co – no, they’ve decided to put four designs out there, all at once.

Introducing the Jake Burton Carpenter Shinola


Even if you’re not a snowboarder (I most certainly am not), you are no doubt familiar with the snowboarding gear brand Burton. Well, as with most brands, it actually started out as the brainchild of one person. In this case, it was Jake Burton Carpenter back in 1977 who decided standing sideways on the snow was the way to go. He passed about a year ago, and this new Jake Burton Carpenter Shinola is being done in honor of what he built.

May is Star Wars month, and you know what that means: hot watch talk on The HourTime Show!

May 2021 WWR Giveaway: Agelocer Moonphase


Did you see our review of the Agelocer Moonphase, and find yourself wondering what it would be like to have that aventurine dial on your own wrist? Well, then, now you’ve got a chance to win the very one we reviewed courtesy of our friends over at Agelocer.

Introducing the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander Collection


Things have been a bit quieter from Christopher Ward as of late. In 2020, it seemed we had a number of releases from the brand, and then it just sort of went radio silent. Well, that is, until now. While many folks reading this site no doubt have a number of watches, many others prefer to have just a single, versatile watch. Or perhaps you want to get yourself down to “just one watch”. With the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander Collection, you could ostensibly do just that.

Citizen’s analog-digital Star Wars watch is pan-galactic cool


Star Wars is as much a space opera for kids who grew up with it on Disney as it is fond memories for Gen Xers. Citizen is capitalizing on this by putting Star Wars Rebel DNA into a period-perfect Ana-Digi 1980s watch. How does any of this make sense? Bear with me.

Introducing the UNDONE x Simple Union: Sometsuke


I don’t know about you, but I’ve been seeing more and more about the practice of kintsugi, where pottery is repaired, but not in a way where the mending is hidden. Instead, it’s highlighted via the use of gold, given a sort of well-earned beauty to a piece (you can read more about it here). Now we have a watch that honors that idea, the UNDONE x Simple Union: Sometsuke.
