As you may or may not be aware, all of our editors here at WWR have Instagram accounts.  Until yesterday, however, we did not have a presence on the ‘gram for WWR itself.  That grievous, grievous oversight has now been corrected.

Rolex just launched the 2020 Submariners, and they’re all new – and fat.

Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date

Rolex updated their most popular watch, the Submariner for 2020. The new model number is now 126610LN. Keen submariner fans will notice this is still a six digit Sub, but instead of the 116610, it’s now incremented a digit. What do we get with this new number?

Chrysler has made that slogan pretty famous, and it’s one I like to use (since I used to be from there).  And watch-related businesses have been springing up (see Motor City Watch Works), but now we’ve got a company building watches in the Motor City.

It’s (Almost) Time To Spring Ahead

spring ahead

That’s right – time to complain about losing an hour of sleep!  Or, just move your watches (yes, all of them) forward an hour when you go to sleep tonight so you don’t show up late tomorrow.  In other words, we spring ahead, even with snow still on the ground.

Bremont Flying High With New 2018 Releases

As many of our readers know, last year marked the first time in many years that Bremont did not attend Baselworld. They decided to release their new-for-2017 models at their own event in London dubbed, appropriately, Bremont Townhouse. Following up on a successful 2017 event, Bremont is rinsing and repeating for 2018, kicking off their 3-day Townhouse event on February 27th (the day I write this). Let’s take a closer look at what’s been announced.

Happy Birthday, Matt!

That’s right, today is the birthday of our very own crowd-funded-watch-covering Matt Himmelstein!  While I don’t think he’s particularly short, I could not pass up Ye Olde Meme, verily (and forsooth).  Here’s to wishing you a great day!
