Watching the Web for August 29, 2015

August 29, 2015 . by Matt Himmelstein

Welcome once again (or just welcome if you are a first time reader) to our regular Saturday post, Watching the Web. Here, Patrick and I take turns scouring the internet for interesting watch related articles we can point you towards, and we get a chance to crow about our own more popular posts over the last week or so, just in case you missed them. For the external links this week, I wanted to point out a review of the Seiko Spirit SCVE003, an essay on not owning a Rolex, a review of a single hand MeisterSinger watch, and a little wrist time with the MB&F Legacy Machine 1. From here at Wrist Watch Review, the most popular articles were the Deep Blue Sun Diver 1K, the Torgoen Scorpion, and a look at a pair of EDC posts.

Some Watch Deals on Touch of Modern

April 22, 2015 . by Matt Himmelstein

I am a fan of Touch of Modern, and have bought a number of items for myself and my house through the site, including a watch back before I started wring for WWR. The site, as I have mentioned here previously, is a members only sale site (join here if you are not a member) specializing in modern goods that skew toward a male audience. Sales are limited time, and frequently include watches. Right now, there are several watch deals on Touch of Modern, including Cobra de Calibre, Vintage Rolexes, and watches from Jean Marcel, Ballast, and Alessandro Baldieri.

Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind. In this series, we bring to light watch related videos which we feel are interesting and worth sharing with our readers. This week, we have the first desk clock I’ve taken an interest in for some time, a run down of how you can spot a fake Rolex, and a look at the interface of the Apple Watch.

Sheer Magnetism, Darling: You Can Own James Bond’s Buzzsaw Rolex

October 14, 2011 . by John Biggs

Live And Let Die was one of the most gadget-filled Bond movies, featuring a Rolex watch with built-in high intensity magnetic bullet shield and buzzsaw as well as robotic voodoo figures and a taxi that enclosed the rider in a cage of bulletproof glass. Although the figures and taxi aren’t for sale, you can own…

Chad Recommends: Get thee a Rolex 1675

August 10, 2010 . by John Biggs

It’s a little aged, but the Rolex 1675 is now going for about three grand and it has a GMT hand, which meets my “at least one complication” law when it comes to three-handed watches. Chad could probably find you one but do some searches. Watch out for eBay, though. Those guys are punks. In…

Up for auction is a 1940s Rolex sold to a prisoner of war while he was incarcerated. A 1940s Rolex chronograph that belonged to a British prisoner of war at the Stalag Luft III camp in Nazi Germany is coming up for sale at Antiquorum in Geneva on May 13 and 14. With it is…

Rolex Concept Phone Coming from LG?

October 10, 2007 . by John Biggs

I doubt they’ll make it — Rolex knows not to bastardize their brand — but it is pretty interesting. You’ll have to trust me on this one, as I wasn’t allowed to take photographs inside LG’s mobile demonstration room. But one wall has a display of concept mobile phones, including a model that’s basically a…
