July 20, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

If you are a fan of tritium watches then you should know the brand MB-Microtech. MB-Microtech is the leading manufacturer, if not the only manufacturer of tritium tubes for the watch industry. Their tubes are also used in gun sites and anything else the requires these self-luminated vials. Aside from providing these tritium tubes to…



Introducing the Undive Dark Sea 500M Professional Diver

July 19, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

We cover a lot of crowd funded watches here. Many of them are kind of, been-there-done-that kind of watches, or some have little quality quirks that a new brand may have, but every now and then there is the wow watch. Undive is starting their Kickstarter campaign in August and so far from what I see,…



Hands-on with two Christopher Ward jumping hour watches

July 14, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Like a subtle sonnerie, the jumping hour complication audibly announces each hour. Instead of chiming like a grand sonnerie—and costing tens of thousands of dollars—a jumping hour clicks at the top of the hour as a digital hour wheel “jumps” to the next hour. Not unlike the sound of a date wheel snapping into a…

The Casio GPW-2000-1A Gravitymaster will lift you up where you belong

July 11, 2017 . by John Biggs

With a name like GRAVITYMASTER the Casio GPW-2000-1A had better make you fly. Sadly, it doesn’t. However, it can help you while you jet from spot to spot. The $800 GPW-2000-1A is specifically designed for pilots and travelers. It connects to your phone or the local GPS positioning satellites to set the time at your…



Hands on with the Isobrite Master Diver

July 7, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Isobrite makes a pretty cool line of military, law enforcement, and tactical style watches. Along with those they also have a pretty cool diver called the Master Diver. There are two versions of this master diver, the ISO504 with the rubber strap and the ISO502 with the PVD coated stainless steel bracelet. I really like…
