Tapping out a tune with the moVas Exotica Incognito Bluey

March 24, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

While I personally find myself more drawn to the, shall we say, more classic designs that moVas creates, I can’t help but to find the crazier stuff (now finding a home under the Exotica banner) at least interesting to consider – and perhaps to dream about wearing.  The most recent introduction to this line is…

At Baselworld 2017, Tudor has been laying out a number of new watches for fans to drool over, and one of them is Tudor’s newest chronograph addition to the lineup, the The Black Bay Chronograph Ref. 79350.

Benson wants to tower over lesser watch winders

March 22, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Watch winders occupy a category that even the most die-hard of the WIS crew do not pay much attention to.  You start searching online, and you can find plenty of cheap options, but a closer read reveals that they’re plastic, noisy, and perhaps not all that long-lasting.  Then you come to stuff like what Benson…

“The Connected Modular 45.” A name that truly drips off the tongue. So full of promise, of beauty, of the potential for connecting modules!

Ok, the only thing that’s really plain on this watch is the dial, and why yes, they did that on purpose. So, though I answered my own question, we do have a little more to talk about.  I really like the line of Limes Endurance dive watches(which I talked about here). This new model, the Limes Endurance PD kind of…



Introducing the Eberhard Scafograph GMT

March 13, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

It really should be no surprise that I was drawn to the Eberhard Scafograph GMT that was just announced, should it?  Then again, why should the addition of a relatively simple complication elevate a basic sports watch so much in my book?  I have my reasons for it, most simply because it mixes up what…
