Earlier this year I was attending an alumni event and the subject matter turned to watches (how I turned it there I don’t recall). One of the group asked what I would recommend for her to get her boyfriend as a gift. My first question was how much money she wanted to spend. When she said roughly $1,000, I immediately recommended a Weiss. Her question also got me thinking about how I could organize the 2015 holiday gift guide. So for this iteration, I will recommend my favorite watch (or watch related gift) in each of several price ranges. Chances are, if I like it, especially if it under about $1,500, we have covered it in the past, since that is the kind of people we are; but there may be watches here (especially at the high end) that have not graced our pages.

Hello and welcome back (I hope) Watching the Web, our weekly installment where we highlight interesting watches related articles from other sites, and point out own more popular articles over the last week. Today, we have a review of the Borealis Seahawk 1500 from a diver’s perspective, a photo essay from a watchmaking class held by Audemars Piguet, and a tutorial on how to remove scratches from a watch crystal. From our site, Patrick swept the top spots, with his recent reviews of the Shinola Rambler GMT, the Gavox Aurora, and the Steinhart Military 42.
