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…



Diving back in time with the Halios Seaforth

April 18, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

I do not remember when I first came across Canadian brand Halios, but I do remember being struck by their Tropik line of watches.  They’ve had a few different iterations, but the one that has stuck with me was the white-dialed version.  They’re just-announced watches – the Halios Seaforth – seem like they might be…



Celebrating 60 years of the Breitling Superocean

April 13, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

As Victor noted in a recent discussion he and I were having (talking about Baselworld releases), this really seems to be the year of the anniversary.  Quite a few brands are celebrating milestones for various watches, and Breitling is another one to join that particular party.  For me, I have a bit of a love/hate…



It’s like a ring of fire!

While I – and many immersed in the watch world – tend to have our favorite sorts of complications (and complexities) for watches, there is no doubt that a well-sorted, time-and-date-only watch will certainly hold interest for most folks.  Well, today, we are dipping our toes into the waters of simple (again, in terms of…



G Gerlach Declares – Enter the Dragon!

April 7, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Fortunately for you and me, that does not mean we’re about to see our life flash before our eyes as Bruce Lee smacks us into next year.  What it does mean is that they’ve decided to go and create a decidedly dressier watch – and one that, for the first time (as far as I…



Hands-on with the Minuteman RWB Prototype

April 6, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Back in December, we brought you word of the first automatic watch coming from Minuteman Watches.  While they are still officially in a pre-order phase for the watches (which ends April 30th), we were able to spend some time with a prototype of the Minuteman RWB.
