Introducing the Undive Dark Sea 500M Professional Diver

July 19, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

We cover a lot of crowd funded watches here. Many of them are kind of, been-there-done-that kind of watches, or some have little quality quirks that a new brand may have, but every now and then there is the wow watch. Undive is starting their Kickstarter campaign in August and so far from what I see,…



The Caliper Slide Watch is the perfect piece for your post-apocalyptic jaunts

July 18, 2017 . by John Biggs

When the apocalypse finally arrives, those with the booksmarts will be the upperymen. Maybe somebody you know will be the readerwriter and maybe somebody you know will learn how to make the brandywine and maybe you’ll have a bakerman among you but who will be the mather? The mather will be the one with the…

July 18, 2017 . by John Biggs

Bonjour, mes amis! Bibliothèque, croissant les halles? Oui oui! That’s what Axiom watches latest creations would say if they could talk.

We wanted to cover off on a new watch that just hit Kickstarter, from a new brand called A Matter of Time (AMOT).  Now, to be certain, this is not the first time we’ve seen modular concept watches hitting these pages (see Evarii and Eldon for some history and context).  However, as it is certainly a break…

Last year, we reviewed the CJR Airspeed, the first watch from CJR. Now, they’re back from outer space with the CJR Commander, a skeletonized movement, and an open dial. CJR shipped one to us prior to launching their Kickstarter, and it’s worth having a look.

Are you ready to fight the unending violence inherent in the monetary system? Do you like watches? Bam. Bitcoin Watches. These Kickstarter pieces don’t sell for BTC but cost $239 for quartz and $2,386 for an automatic Eterna movement. This isn’t full of complications, much like the blockchain, and the main value in being able…



With Glass Watch by Orsto your glass (watch) will always be half-full (of watch)

July 5, 2017 . by John Biggs

A skeleton Miyota movement? A brass number plate in gold or silver? A glass case that looks like something Breguet coughed up on a particularly hard day at the atelier? Sign me up! The Orsto is a glass three-handed watch with some very unique styling. Based in UK, the crowdfunded piece looks to be raising…
