Minus-8 Diver review: What I like about you.

November 25, 2016 . by Victor Marks

What happens when you take titanium, anti-reflective coating, and a sense of playfulness about the design of a dial and case? If it’s the good alternate timeline we’re in, you get Minus 8’s MINUS-8 DIVER: An Automatic Titanium Dive Watch. First of all, I love titanium. I love watches that are titanium. I once spent…



Skyscraper Art Deco Watch is like wearing the Chrysler Building on your wrist

November 21, 2016 . by Jim Manley

We reviewed the original version of this watch—the “Crash of ’29”— hands-on back in August 2015. The updated “Skyscraper” uses the same big art deco case, but changes almost everything else. These updates make a very unique watch a bit more accessible, bringing down the price from $3,500 to $925 or $1,200 (depending on the…

Ronald Steffen Creations is Kickstarting a new pilot watch inspired by the company’s own WWII-era P-51 Mustang fighter plane.

SVSTEM Vintage-Inspired Watches

James Lucy Watches of London is going Gaucho

November 3, 2016 . by Neal Goodacre

James Lucy is a crowdfunded company looking to create an elegant and timeless timepiece at a reasonable price. What makes them different from other crowdfunded watches out there? That would be their watch straps. The watches are a simple, clean, and dressy design. Looks a bit like my fathers old Bulova. There will offer date…



AERCY Watches Kickstarter reboot promises the end of “Inflated Swiss Watches”

November 2, 2016 . by Jim Manley

AERCY’s Allure watches are like a pair of basic khakis: classic style without a hint of drama. It’s hard to object to the simple, neatly organized dial with raised baton indices all the way around and date at 3 o’clock. It sits atop the workhorse Ronda 515 quartz movement and is topped off with a…
