Introducing the Maen Manhattan

May 23, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

If you didn’t see any pictures, and I told you another thin (under 7mm) quartz-driven watch hit Kickstarter, you would probably be on to the next article without a second thought. Fortunately, we do have images, and as you can see there up above (and down below), the Maen Manhattan is not your average watch…

Limes wants you to see their new Pharo DayDate

May 4, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Guess who’s back?  Limes is back!  Well, they were never gone, but the Limes Pharo DayDate has not been available for a bit now.  While we have focused – in the past – on their sportier pieces, there’s something to be said about a well-executed dress watch, and the Limes Pharo DayDate is precisely that.

Fortunately for you and me, that does not mean we’re about to see our life flash before our eyes as Bruce Lee smacks us into next year.  What it does mean is that they’ve decided to go and create a decidedly dressier watch – and one that, for the first time (as far as I…

While this is an invaluable stream of information, it sometimes can have a frustrating signal-to-noise ratio. Fortunately, most of those messages contain an image or two of the watch that is being introduced, and this lets us easily hone in on what is of interest to us and our readers. Even though I did not know anything about the specifications (or even the pricing) of the Alvieri Firenze, when I saw the images, I was fairly certain this would be a watch we would cover.

The Reverie watch company “had me at hello” with its sea-wave-inspired guilloché dial and cushion shaped case. The micro brand is offering mega value with its first watch that relies on classic design elements, a Japanese automatic movement and a thoughtful attention to detail.
