A true kickstarter, it’s the Altitude Pilot Watch

It seems that I’ve been having a lot of Flieger-style (or Flinger-Inspired) watches crossing my virtual desk these days. Many of these have taken other designs and mixed it up with a Flieger handset. IF you want something that is a bit more of a traditional, barebones style Flieger, then the Altitude Pilot Watch may be the one for you.

Who needs a flux capacitor when you’ve got the OVD Time Traveller II ?

Some of the more interesting projects that we come across on Kickstarter come courtesy of other folks we know telling us about projects that they’ve decided to back. The most recent case of this is the watch we’re talking about today, which came to my attention courtesy of Ben over at Tempest Watch. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what makes the OVD Time Traveller II an interesting piece.

Introducing the Ball Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT

In many ways, it can be quite easy to predict what I may like. Does it have Batman or Bob Ross in it? Insert “Shut up and take my money” meme right here. More precisely, when it comes to watches, a GMT movement will immediately grab my eyes. Throw in some tritium tubes, and well, that’s buttercream icing on the cake. Which is why Victor knew he needed to send the info on the Ball Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT my way once he ran across it.

You have just 7 days to back the Hamtun H2 Kraken

Oh, sure. I could have led with some awful “release the Kraken” comment. I could have resorted to that sophomoric sort of humor, or I could have referenced the epic film of my youth, Clash of the Titans. “The Kraken is the end of us. A colossal, elemental beast. Even the gods fear it.”

And it’s true. The Kraken’s gaping maw of teeth, and the ability to destroy whole cities, lives on in that madman’s mind, Hamtun’s creator Ross Davis, and the H2 dive watch named humbly, The Kraken.

To the fields! It’s the Minuteman A11

You know me – I like to support the small guys. They tend to provide us with some unique designs and some really great value. Minuteman is one of those brands, and we’ve written about them before, quite a few times. Well, their latest – the Minuteman A11 – brings a splash of color to a tried-and-true design. It also brings along a movement that is poised to make a big splash as well.

Glowing carbon fiber rings – those are (apparently) my jam

As you know, I’ve recently gotten into the world of glowing rings (here and here), primarily from Rune Refinery and Anilo Carbon.  Well, they’ve got a new project underway (because CarbonFi is a sister company), for the CarbonFi Aurora.

Dive into multiple time zones with Zahnd & Kormann ZK No. 2

All the way back in 2017, we brought you word of Zahnd & Korman’s first foray into the watch world.  While chronographs don’t really do it for me, it must’ve worked for a good number of people, as the brand has come around with their next version, one that has me rather intrigued.  This new watch is simply named – it’s the Zahnd & Kormann ZK No. 2.

Take a spin with the Uriel Geneqt Mechanics Cufflinks

Do you remember back to when I first told you about the Uriel Geneqt cufflinks in 2017, and then earlier this year brought you a hands-on review of those same links?  Those are a fun way to get your watches integrated into your suit (aside from, well, wearing a watch). Not everyone wants to track the time on their cuffs, though, so perhaps you would find the Uriel Geneqt Mechanics Cufflinks more to your liking.

Heading downtown with the S&B Watches Skyline

As I mentioned in our article on the Zew Box Luxury Watch Kickstarter, S&B Watches (also known as Smith & Bradley) was the main brand behind the club starting up.  While the campaign has closed (and was fully funded), we got to spend a little bit of time with a S&B Watches Skyline, the Swiss automatic offered at one of the tiers in the club.  So, you backers at the Executive Club level, consider this a preview of the watch you’ll be receiving.

The Oak & Oscar Humboldt is how it’s done

Over the years, I’ve gotten to see a lot of great watches, and have been introduced to so many new brands that I’ve lost count.  There are a few of them that I’ve come across that call my hometown their hometown, and those have been great ones to find.  You can meet up with the maker in their space, see what they’re designing, and play around with some of the fun things they have in the works.  It’s been some time since I’ve sat down with Chase Fancher, the guy behind Oak & Oscar, but that’s understandable – this is a busy guy.  His latest watch, part of the permanent collection, was just introduced – the Oak & Oscar Humboldt.
