Clockwork Synergy Straps Team Review

April 5, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

We’re no stranger to strap reviews here, and, over the years, we have gotten to sample quite a variety from brands small and large. All of those reviews have been singular affairs, in that we have had one person evaluating the straps for the article. This time around, we are trying something different. For our…



Flying High with Panzera Flieger 47 Mechanica

March 31, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Panzera is an Australian watch brand that was established in 2009, with  models that cover land, sea, and air. They currently offer the Aquamarine 45 diver, the Breuer 44 and 47 dress, and the Flieger 47 pilot. After reaching out to them, they were kind enough to loan us a Panzera Flieger 47 Mechanica for review. So what is a…



Hands-on with the new Christopher Ward C5 Malvern Automatic MK III

March 30, 2017 . by Jim Manley

When we previewed the new Christopher Ward C5 Malvern Automatic MK III there were obvious design inspirations from the flagship C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve. Hands-on, that inspiration is still evident, but it’s faint. Everything that made the C1’s design special is here, but more muted. Still, this is a far cry from the stuffy old…

March 29, 2017 . by Victor Marks

After Baselworld showed us wonderful things from Breitling, Tudor, and Carl F. Bucherer, I want to take a moment and go back to the affordable end of the pool. I want to talk to you about the Spinnaker SP–5033 Cahill. This is one of my favorite affordable watches.



His and Hers Hands-on with MJW Colour Venn and Cyclops

March 23, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Precision is overrated. You obviously agree, or you wouldn’t be here reading about inherently inaccurate mechanical watches. You and I appreciate the fact that craftsmanship and style are usually more important than down-to-the-second accuracy. Mr. Jones Watches takes that appreciation to the extreme with two of its more colorful watches: Colour Venn and Cyclops. My…



Hager Aquamariner: Better down where it’s wetter

March 14, 2017 . by Victor Marks

Hager makes a small, but tight-knit assortment of diver-based watches. Whether it’s the Commando Professional, a milsub-homage, or the new GMT Traveler, you can be sure of one thing – the watches are well-made interpretations of the watches they pay homage to… like the Hager Aquamariner. Aquamariner is a pretty faithful interpretation of one recent…



All Hail the Prometheus Poseidon, the watch god of both fire and the sea!

March 8, 2017 . by John Biggs

Prometheus watches is a fan favorite with some interesting pieces. Most recently they’ve begun releasing the Poseidon collection, a set of mechanical divers that come on steel bracelets and, for a mere $750, give you a great design and a face made of meteorite(!!). The watches are water resistant to 3,500 meters (hence the Poseidon)…
