I hope you all had a “safe and sane” July 4th (well, at least safe), and thanks for checking in with us for our weekly spin around the internet, Watching the Web, where we look a other watch sites, and recap our more popular articles. This week, I am going to point you to the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 Watch, an article about one of the first watches in space, and some common sense ways to spot a fake watch. From our own site, we have the Benarus Megalodon, the Mercer Watch Company Wayfarer GMT, the H2O Watch Hydra, and a monochromatic EDC.

There are a number of watch complications out there, and one that Patrick and I both really like is the GMT. With the Mercer Watch Company Wayfarer GMT, this new company is bringing this complication to market in their sophomore watchmaking effort. I wrote about the Brigadier automatic back in March, and it looks like that watch is getting in the hands of the backers, with a positive response. With that project in its final stages, Mercer is back on Kickstarter looking for funding for project #2.

Sometimes we look for the next cool watch and overlook a well made, but not overly exciting watch. I am not going to say I overlooked the Brigadier, but it did take me a little while to get to writing about it. And it is a watch worth writing about on its own, since the Mercer Watch Company Brigadier on Kickstarter is a pretty three hander that looks like it is well designed and made, even if it is not super exciting.
