Carve out some time for Projects Watches

May 25, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

By now, you are no doubt aware that we here at WWR dig into the design details of the watches we learn about and review. One of the many areas of focus is often the dial. With this, we often wax semi-poetically about the various levels and changes of texture on a dial – or,…



Introducing the Maen Manhattan

May 23, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

If you didn’t see any pictures, and I told you another thin (under 7mm) quartz-driven watch hit Kickstarter, you would probably be on to the next article without a second thought. Fortunately, we do have images, and as you can see there up above (and down below), the Maen Manhattan is not your average watch…



Field testing the Aevig Corvid

May 22, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Whenever a brand reaches out to see if we want to take a look at a new watch, I generally start from a position of “yeah, why not?” In other words, the watch is innocent until proven guilty. Sure, there have been some, shall we say, less-than-preferable pieces crossing the review desk with that policy….

May 4, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Guess who’s back?  Limes is back!  Well, they were never gone, but the Limes Pharo DayDate has not been available for a bit now.  While we have focused – in the past – on their sportier pieces, there’s something to be said about a well-executed dress watch, and the Limes Pharo DayDate is precisely that.



A slimmed-down homage in the bronze TC-9 Navy Watch

May 2, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

To this day (not that it was THAT long ago) I remember the very first mechanical watch I bought.  I had become entranced with the vintage looks and sandwich dials of the Panerai – or, more precisely, the various homages that were floating around available on the internet (and still are).  When I finally pulled…



The May 2017 WWR Giveaway: The Melbourne Watch Co Portsea Heritage

May 1, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

This month, we have an opportunity for you to win a Melbourne Watch Co Portsea Heritage.  This is a watch we originally wrote about back in 2014 (here), and while we’ve not been hands-on with the watch, it’s one that should make the winner quite happy.



Introducing the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 3

April 24, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Today, we are in a bit of an odd situation. Here at WWR, we like to tell you about watches that are currently available, or will be available soon. Well, with the recent launch of the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 3, we’re breaking that mold a bit. You see, with the Iconik series, MWW only…
