Welcome back to our weekly Saturday feature, Watching the Web, where we highlight interesting watch related posts that we come across on other sites, as well as take a moment to look back at our own popular recent articles. From the wide world of watches, we have a collectors take on a Bugatti watch, a writeup on the resurgence of pocket watches, and an opinion piece on what Instagram is doing to watch collectors. From our own site, we have the Deep Blue DayNight, a three-for AVI-8 review, and some old-school Seikos.

I have been aware of the Minuteman brand for some time now, but the watches they were creating really never piqued my interest. Sure, the concept behind the brand – using watch sales to assist veteran’s charities – is admirable, and now they finally have a watch that I think merits some discussion, regardless of whatever other good work may be done by the brand (just consider it a bonus). So, with that, let’s see what the Minuteman Independence has to offer.

We here at WWR like to focus on a wide variety of watches, and we certainly enjoy when we get to showcase something that is built in our neck of the woods. One brand we have not focused on as much, for whatever reason, is Ohio-based Lum Tec. They just recently announced their new-for-2016 models, and there was one in particular that caught my eye – the Lum Tec Combat B33 GMT.

Do you like large watches? Of course, you have to define what a large watch is, and that varies from person to person, but anything around 50mm for me qualifies as a large watch. The largest watch I own is a 47mm, and it is noticably larger than the rest of my collection. Well, now I may need to rethink my upper end. The IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch comes in two flavors, with the smaller of the two sitting at 48mm. The larger one, a very robust 55mm.

Hello and thanks for swinging by to check out our Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we look for cool wacth related videos from around the web, and bring them to your attention. Today I have the marriage of centuries old watch making technology and the latest tool for rapid prototyping, a 3D printed tourbillon. An article at Hodinkee tipped me off to this, and the Swiss engineer’s YouTube page has these videos and more.

Welcome back to our weekly Saturday feature, Watching the Web, where we highlight interesting watch related posts that we come across on other sites, as well as take a moment to look back at our own popular recent articles. From across the vast collection of watch blogs, I thought I would highlight a reworking of the Urwerk UR110, a review of the Steinhart Ocean One Titanium, and a very sporting looking Grönefeld Parallax Tourbillon. From our own site, we have reviews of the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon, the Moto Koure MK I, and the Deep Blue Master 1000’ Automatic.
