Hands on with the Nodus Trieste diver

May 12, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Dive watches are a dime-a-dozen, and independent brands sometimes skimp on quality or originality to make a market. Not the Nodus Trieste. It stands out with exceptional build quality, subtly unique details, and two price points that both deliver great value. This is the first watch from LA-based Nodus—I hope it’s the first of many.

April 18, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

I do not remember when I first came across Canadian brand Halios, but I do remember being struck by their Tropik line of watches.  They’ve had a few different iterations, but the one that has stuck with me was the white-dialed version.  They’re just-announced watches – the Halios Seaforth – seem like they might be…
