Going flat out with the CT Scuderia Testa Piatta

June 7, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Seems to be that, when we’re reviewing watches from CT Scuderia, we tend to hit them all at once. That happened the last go-round, and now seems to be the case this time around. It was not that long ago that we reviewed the CT Scuderia Scrambler, and now we’re hitting another one that’s a…

May 4, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Guess who’s back?  Limes is back!  Well, they were never gone, but the Limes Pharo DayDate has not been available for a bit now.  While we have focused – in the past – on their sportier pieces, there’s something to be said about a well-executed dress watch, and the Limes Pharo DayDate is precisely that.

Well, not really, but we are getting word of a new generation, aka the Raven Defender II.  This time around, along with the three-hander plus date style we’ve seen, we’ve got a GMT complication in the mix.



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…
