I am not the ‘official gift guide curator here art WWR, but I have been doing them throughout my tenure, and it is December, so I figured I would put out my version of the 2016 Holiday gift guide.  I am going by price, with the least expensive products (yes, there are things other than…



Forging ahead with the Tempest Carbon2

August 8, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

One of the absolute great things about being a watch reviewer is the number of watches that we get coming across our desks. Yeah, it can be overwhelming at times, but the sheer variety keeps things interesting. It’s even better when you start a relationship up with a brand, and you get to experience their watches changing and improving over time. It was only a year and a half ago that we got to talk about the most affordable forged carbon watch at the time, the Tempest One. Well, as you can guess with that title up above, the second gen has arrived. Read on to see what we thought of the Tempest Carbon2 in our time with it.

December 28, 2015 . by Patrick Kansa

A little bit earlier this month, Matt brought you his thoughts on what the top 5 watches of 2015 were. That seemed to click pretty well with you, and, as we all have our own opinions and preferences, today is my turn to pontificate. Given the wide variety of watches that crossed my desk this…

In this Fathers Day gift guide, I am going to point out some of my favorite watches and accessories that have crossed our (real or virtual) desks over the last few months, organized by price.



Going Hands-On With The Tempest Carbon

March 16, 2015 . by Patrick Kansa

Back in December, we brought you word of the latest offering from Tempest, the Tempest Carbon. In that writeup, I lamented the fact that our friends over at aBlogtoWatch were able to spend some time with the prototype. Well, supporting the saying that “good things come to those who wait”, we actually got to spend some time with the prototype ourselves. So, what is it like having the Tempest Carbon on the wrist



Hands-On Review of the Tempest Commodore

January 8, 2015 . by Patrick Kansa

When it comes to dive watches, the past few years have seen an explosion of brands offering very competent and well-designed pieces, often times powered by Japanese automatic movements.
