ManchesterWatchWorks is one of those brands that we have gotten to watch grow over the past year or so, and we have sampled quite a few of their watches. We have of course taken a look at both their TatoskoQ and TatoskoK, as well as the more recent Westminster and Vergennes. While the more recent watches were trench watches, for this new release, MWW is getting back to where they started – a dive watch. So, let’s have a look at what the newest ManchesterWatchWorks Armada has on offer.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day and stopping by to check out our regular Saturday feature, Watching the Web, where we take a little bit of time to highlight interesting watch related articles and watch reviews we find on other sites across the web. We then take a little time to promote our own popular articles from the last week or so. Today, I wanted to point you to reviews of the Bovet Sergio Pinanfarina Split Second Chronograph 45, the URWERK EMC Pistol, and the Junghans Meister Pilot Event Edition. From our site, the most popular posts over the last week or so have been the reviews of the Vejrhøj Nautic, the Manchester Watch Works Tatoskok, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five.

I have said it many times before, and I will likely say it many times more – dive watches are simply one of, if not the, most popular styles of watches today. Most of them show on the wrists of those who don’t dive (such as this writer), so it really becomes more of a style choice. Sure, there is some appeal to the capability that a dive watch represents, but for most desk divers, it is the look of the watch that draws them in. So, then, if a new brand is bringing a diver to the market, it should offer something unique – and that is what we have with the Manchester Watch Works Tatoskok.

We first brought you word of the Manchester Watch Works Vergennes and Westminster watches not all that long ago (link). Of the two trench watch-inspired pieces, I found myself drawn the most to the white-dialed one. As fortune would have it, there was one of those available for us to go hands-on with, even though the Kickstarter project (link) is still running. Without further ado, let’s get into our review of the Manchester Watch Works Vergennes.

Another week is in the books, so it is time for another edition of our Saturday feature, Watching the Web, where we take a spin around to other web sites and find recent articles that have piqued our interest. We also use this as a chance to highlight the articles from our site that managed to grab the most views over the last week or so. First, from the rest of the watch watching world, I wanted to point you to a side by side comparison of two budget dive watches, a look at the HYT H2 Aviator, and a special Star Wars themed watch. From our own site, the reviews of the ManchesterWatchWorks Westminster and Vergennes watches, the Tactico Geomaster GMT, and the Tag Heuer AquaRacer Ceramic were all popular this week.

While we have covered quite a few different Kickstarter-sourced watch brands (due to the diligent coverage of Matt), there have not been all that many that we have seen repeat their efforts on the crowd-funding platform. One of the brands that I was impressed with via some time with a prototype (here; of note, we are working on a review of an automatic update to the watch) is back, this time heading back to an era where pocket watches jumped to the wrist of servicemen. Those are colloquially known as trench watches, and ManchesterWatchWorks is back with their Westminster and Vergennes models to commemorate that era.
