Welcome to Watching the Web, our weekly series of a peek around the internet to find interesting watch related articles. And, we also get to crow out the articles you found most interesting over the last week or so. This week, Hodinkee gives us Shinola’s responds to the FTC, ABTW checks out the Ressence Type 5, and Monochrome brings us the full line of MB&F watches. From our website, you guys found our articles about the Momentum Atlas 38, G. Gerlach Submarine, and TWCO Salvage Diver the most interesting (or at least the most read).
Warm weather is here, which means a lot of us are going to be spending a lot more time in the outdoors. If you are looking for a great watch to accompany you, the military-esque styling of a field watch is certainly a solid look to go for. To that end, the newly announced (and quite affordable) Momentum Atlas 38 is something you may consider.
As I have mentioned previously , there is just something about a steel-encased three-hander that makes for a very flexible watch. There are, of course, no shortage of options, and I have recently run across one from a brand that we have not had on our pages in some time – Momentum. With the Momentum Logic, there also exists the possibility for you pick up a his-and-hers combo, were you so inclined.
Today I want to point you two watch offerings from Momentum Watch Company, the Torpedo and the Steelix, that are what you might consider budget buys. Momentum makes a number of watches, including some diver offerings, which is where the Torpedo sits, which the Steelix is more of a Field watch. Both watches have a 44mm diameter brushed stainless steel case with the crown at 4:00. The watches contain a Japanese quartz movement, have anti-glare coated mineral crystals and are depth rated to 200 feet.
The last time we looked at a watch from Momentum, it was a model that packed a lot of functionality into it’s titanium case. Today, we’re going in a different direction in their catalog, with a simpler women’s model, one of their newest – the Alter Ego.
