September 30, 2016 . by Victor Marks

Rubbin’ is Racin’. Tradin’ Paint. American Racin’ goes round and round with just left turns. F1. Bonneville Salt Flats. Watches and autos have gone together for as long as people have been pushing motorcars past the limits of good sense.

Introducing the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches

August 10, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

When it comes to watches, I am generally able to figure out how to read the time on the watch, as well as grasping at least the basics of how it is things are being indicated on the dial. With a simple three-hander, there’s not much to decipher, as it’s rather familiar. You can get into some esoteric designs and displays though, and then it gets a bit trickier. I will admit, when I first saw the images of the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches, I finally had to ask the brand to enlighten me as to how it was working.



Lighting up the night with the Luminox 1924

In the vast panoply of watch brands, it is inevitable that there are some brands that we simply have never covered, whatever the reason may be. Luminox is one of those brands. For me, I was always aware of them (I still remember seeing the workbench ads in Popular Mechanics), but we just never made contact. Well, that is, until recently. I had run across a particular model (as it turns, a rather old one), and went chasing things down to get some solid contacts with the brand. As it were, that watch was no longer available, but of course, there was plenty of others in the catalog to have a look at. And that, dear reader, is how we arrived at today, with my review of the Luminox 1924.
