Trayvax Element is a beer-popping minimalist wallet

May 8, 2017 . by John Biggs

I went digging recently for another minimalist wallet and boy did I find one. My old one, two pieces of titanium attached with a rubber band, was getting too old and things were falling out. I did a quick hunt and found a few very flat minimalist wallets, but nothing that seemed to be rugged…



Hands on with Bronze TC-9 Navy

May 3, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Just yesterday, Patrick wrote up the new TC-9 Navy which is available on Kickstarter. Pictures from the company are all well and good but nothing beats holding the actual product in your hands, and better yet, wearing it on your wrist. Fortunately for you, our connections to a lot of these new startups run deep, and we were able to…



A slimmed-down homage in the bronze TC-9 Navy Watch

May 2, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

To this day (not that it was THAT long ago) I remember the very first mechanical watch I bought.  I had become entranced with the vintage looks and sandwich dials of the Panerai – or, more precisely, the various homages that were floating around available on the internet (and still are).  When I finally pulled…



Hands-on with the new Christopher Ward C3 Malvern Chronograph MK III

April 28, 2017 . by Jim Manley

The design revolution continues apace at Christopher Ward. The new C3 Malvern Chronograph MK III checks a lot of the same boxes as its automatic cousin, the C5 Malvern Automatic MK III. That means it has a nice slim case (but with some extra finishing), an uncluttered dial (even with two extra registers), and a solid swiss…



Hands on with a Grayton Automatic Dress Watch

April 27, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Grayton Watch Co. is a relatively new watch brand that started out in 2015. Grayton focuses mainly automatic dress watches that are well-made and affordable. I am not normally into dress watches, but I must admit that their designs caught my eye. I reached out to them and they we kind enough to send me out…

April 24, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Today, we are in a bit of an odd situation. Here at WWR, we like to tell you about watches that are currently available, or will be available soon. Well, with the recent launch of the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 3, we’re breaking that mold a bit. You see, with the Iconik series, MWW only…



Casio’s new Edifice line connects to your phone, your soul

April 18, 2017 . by John Biggs

The future, they say, is here but just not evenly distributed. Luckily Casio’s new Edifice line is full of it. Their two new models, the $300 EQB501XDB-1A and EQB501XD-1A, have all of the standard Edifice tricks – 3D dials, lots of functions – but with a few new surprises. The watches use Casio’s Tough Solar…
