Overbuilt dive watches are pretty easy to find, with depth ratings going into the 1,000s of feet territory, well beyond what all but the tinniest percentage of technical divers could ever hope to come close to needing. But watches that get into the 10s of 1,000s, that is getting in the rare air (or deep water to be more apt) of specifications. Two new models of the H2O Kalmar 2 watch do just that, with ratings of 6,000 meters (~20,000 feet) and 8,000 meters (~26,000 feet) respectively.

Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind. In this series, we bring to light watch related videos which we feel are interesting and worth sharing with our readers. This week, I have a couple of videos from Tudor showing men (and a few women) doing studly things while wearing their watches. It is an interesting lifestyle branding, since the videos don’t really go into the watches themselves.

Welcome back (or just welcome if this is your first time here) to our weekly installment, Watching the Web, where we point out interesting watches and articles that have popped up over the last week (or so), and we take a second look at our more popular posts over the same span. Today, I am going to highlight the Urwerk UR-105 TA from A Blog to Watch, Hodinkee’s look at the NOMOS Lambda, and a Kickstarter campaign for hand made watch boxes. From our site, we have an exclusive review of the Filson Journeyman GMT, a look at the Swatch Sistem 51 update, and for the 3rd week in a row, the Ventus Caspian on Kickstarter.

Mother’s Day is coming up, and as a service to those gift challenged male readers out there, I though I would highlight a few watches that you may want to get for the woman (or women) in your lives. I am mainly going to focus on watches that we have reviewed relatively recently, though there are a few extras tossed in here. So without further ado, here is out Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
