Recently Released: Type 1 REV Grail Watch


A few days ago, word came out about the very first watch from Grail Watch, a brand started by Wei Koh and Revolution. For the very first release, they swung for the fences and hit a home run by combining two of the more unique designers in watchmaking today – Benoît Mintiens of Ressence, and Alain Silberstein. From them sprung the Type 1 REV Grail Watch.

Preorder Alert: moVas Oceaner 3

You know who we haven’t heard from in a long time? moVas, that’s who. Well, that’s more on us than them. moVas has been out there, still creating watches, and they’re back this time with a iteration of a previous model (one we’ve not written about, actually). Meet the moVas Oceaner 3.

Introducing: Shinola Traveler

The weather is starting to warm up here in the northern hemisphere, and that means thoughts turn to getting outside. After the last two years, you may even be thinking it’s time to get on the road – or in the air – and explore some new locales. If so, the just-announced Shinola Traveler seems aptly named for your journey.

Introducing: Venezianico Redentore Riserva di Carica


You might be looking at that design, or perhaps the logo, and wondering if this Venezianico crew is trying to pull a fast one? Well, no, they’re not. Turns out, the brand we knew as Meccaniche Veneziane has rebranded themselves as Venezianico (with an explanation for that here). So, the first watch we’ll be telling you about from this new name will be the Venezianico Redentore Riserva di Carica.

Introducing: Nodus Avalon II

It was about this time two years ago when we went hands-on with the original Nodus Avalon (you can read about that here). Two years can be an eternity in the watch world, and now they’ve come back with a newer version of the watch, the aptly-named Nodus Avalon II.

Introducing: the Oak & Oscar Humboldt GMT

If you recall, it was not all that long ago that we were talking to you about the Oak & Oscar Humboldt, and it’s trip to the Olympics on the wrists of the US Men’s Curling Team. While the original version has been around for over three years, there’s a new one hitting the streets – the Oak & Oscar Humboldt GMT.

In Review: Vesuviate Viaggio


As with our review of the Vesuviate Attivo, we’re reviewing a watch today that you can’t buy – yet. Recently, we spent some time with a prototype of the Vesuviate Viaggio, and can give you our thoughts well in advance of the Kickstarter campaign kicking off.

Recently Released: Helson Shark Diver 38 Brass


As Obi-Wan may have been tempted to say: “Helson – now there’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time.” That’s because it’s been almost 9 years since we last talked about the brand. Doesn’t mean that they’ve closed up shop or have stopped producing watches – quite the contrary. In fact, they just recently released a new watch, the Helson Shark Diver 38 Brass.

SÖNER by Sweden makes you a tank watch… if you’re built like a tank


When Freddie Palmgren, the man behind SÖNER, asked for a bluntly honest review of his watch, I wasn’t sure that’s what he really wanted. Most of his watches had been quartz-powered, large, and tank shaped. Basically, in a world of round watches, that are returning to more middle-ground sizes, Freddie went the opposite direction. This is his first mechanical-powered watch, using the Miyota 9039 no-date movement. And it’s not wrong. This is the SÖNER MOMENTUM.

Recently released: Shinola Forged Carbon Monster

Over the past few years, I’ve been rather vocal of my support of Shinola, a brand that hails from the same part of the Mitten State that I grew up in. In addition to touring their factory, I’ve reviewed just about every watch collection that they’ve released (you can see those here). I was rather to see them introduce automatic movements with their Monster lineup (my favorite of the bunch is reviewed here), and now they’ve done something new for that lineup yet again, with the Shinola Forged Carbon Monster.
