Serket, formerly Scorpion, launches Reef Diver 2.0

January 30, 2008 . by John Biggs

One of my favorite homebrew watchmakers, Serket, just launched the Reef Diver 2.0, a beefy automatic with a beautiful huge bezel. I loved the original Reef Diver and this new model looks extra good. It costs $999. Product Page

Invicta sucks – It’s confirmed

January 28, 2008 . by John Biggs

I always though Invicta was shady but here’s some confirmation. This poor guy gets his watch back in WORSE condition than when he sent it in. I sent my Invicta Dune diver back to Invicta in October of last year to have them replace the lume dot on the bezel, which had fallen out, after…

Nike Amp+ Review – I don’t get it.

Tibida expresses three functions through its name; time, binary and date. Created using 42 white LEDs, this design offers three conceptually different ways to tell the time; hour-centric, minute-centric and binary. Combining a…

Nooka Zirc: How big! How bold!

January 17, 2008 . by John Biggs

I’ve been clearly failing our dedicated watch readers with my coverage of odd and sexy designs. Take the Nooka Zirc for example. It has a 45mm face with a 22mm band and looks like a Dick Tracy watchphone — but isn’t. The dots show the hour and the long bar shows the minutes. It’s $350…
