Time Flies For The Human Time Project

0

 

 

We first brought your attention to the Human Time project back in October of last year, and they’re still going strong.  As a matter of fact, now that they’ve hit their one-year anniversary, they have a special model that they’re coming out with.

For The Price Of A Cup Of Coffee…

2

Hi, all. A year ago I set up a Patreon Page for WristWatchReview and, quite nobly, someone gave us a dollar. That is arguably a dollar the team didn’t have before but it is arguably also pretty rough. Here’s what’s up: I want to hire a few more people for the site. I want to pay Patrick and Matt more. I want to make this far better than it is today. And I don’t want to be beholden to watch brands to do it. So that’s where you come in.

Pop over here. Pledge a dollar per month. If enough of you do that we’ll be out of the red and into the black. I will be able to give this site the focus it needs and the lads will finally be able to afford to feed their watch habits. This has ALWAYS been a labor of love, from day one in 2004, and I think we can make some amazing stuff together. Please help if you can.

As if I weren’t busy enough, I invite you to try a new super short podcast I’m doing with my buddy Charlie White. It’s called Top 5 Coolness Countdown and you can subscribe in iTunes here and grab the feed here.

Scorpion is Now Serket

Scorpion, makers of the Reef Diver, is now called Serket. Why? Who knows, but I think the name is much cooler.

In Egyptian mythology a Serket was originally the deification of the scorpion. With our new name and new website, we are unveiling our next model, The Serket Reef Diver 2.0.

Roar!

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.

New TC-9 1970’s Bronze Diver – Now on Kickstarter

Taking inspiration from the 1970’s Seiko divers, TC-9 has done their own versions but in bronze. I really like bronze because of the natural patina that forms on it, and gives it such character. Last year I reviewed TC-9’s 1970’s Bronze Diver, and now, a little more than a year later, TC-9 has their second generation version available on Kickstarter. They were able to send me out one of their pre-production models so I can see what sets this second generation apart from their first 1970’s Bronze Diver. Both are very nice, but there is so much more that sets this apart from their first generation model. Lets take a look and see what’s new with this TC-9 1970’s Bronze Diver.

Introducing The TokyoFlash Kisai Zone

Tokyoflash Japan has just released a new watch design called Kisai Zone, and it’s the first time I think I’ve seen hexagons showing up on a dial.

It’s not a pros and cons list – it’s the Horologicon!

This is a bit outside the realm of our normal coverage, but we thought it would be of interest to our readers – especially those in the New York area – so we thought we’d pass the word along.

Xetum is Offering Up A Free Strap With Purchase

0

Just had an interesting email cross my inbox that I thought I’d share out.  If you purchase a watch today (the 28th) or tomorrow (the 29th) directly from Xetum Automatic Watches, they’ll throw in a free leather strap for you to have as a spare.  All you need to do is forward your order confirmation email to service@xetum.com, letting them know what color strap you want.

Pretty good deal if you were thinking about getting a watch from them, if you ask me.

Let’s Make WWR Amazing

0

Hey, guys. I tried this for Hourtime and it worked so I’m going to try it here. Basically I’ve created a Patreon page that allows you to pledge to WWR on a monthly basis. Think of it as a tip jar. I want to pay Patrick and Matt what they’re worth but, as you can see, the site doesn’t make much in advertising and I’ve never gone out of my way to suck up to watch companies for ad dollars. Hence, I pay these guys and for the server fees out of my pocket.
