Back from the pyre, it’s the Tempest Viking


To borrow the phrasing from a meme – Tempest, there’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time. We had a lot of Tempest watches on the pages here, and they were the first to get the forged carbon cases in at sub-$1000 pricepoints. Well, we got word that the flagship Tempest Viking was back and available to order (until it’s gone forever), and wanted to let you know.

Now, if you’re not aware of what the Tempest Viking is, you can read that review I linked there from all the way back in 2013. That’s the v1, but the main change in the v2 is that it has a titanium caseback that reduces the weight some.

Now, this is a very limited release that we’ve got going on here – there are only a total of 40 pieces being produced in Black/White and Black/Gold (and the black/gold is a new color combo) so you’ll want to move quickly on this. The pricing is just $750 and orders placed will start shipping on January 2nd. tempestwatches.com

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
