Introducing the Manchester Watch Works Iconik 3

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…



Introducing the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Jumping Hour

April 20, 2017 . by Jim Manley

The Malvern Massacre continues, and this time it’s personal. No watch will be spared in Christopher Ward’s march to modernity; their jumping hour timepiece is the next to undergo a makeover inspired by the C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve. The old C9 Jumping Hour MKIII is one of my personal favorites (which I’m coincidentally wearing…



Hands on with SEVENFRIDAY Q2/01 Regulator

April 19, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Since their first watch release of the P1/01 back in 2012, I have always been intrigued by SEVENFRIDAY. Their funky dials housed in odd shaped cases make all their models stand out and call for attention. Up to now I have only seen them in pictures and had to admire them from afar.

Your eyes do not deceive you – the James McCabe Belfast is back on our pages in a hands-on review.   For reference, you can see our 2015 review here. The model McCabe sent me is the James McCabe Belfast JM 1020-CP-2.  Although this is very similar to the previous one we looked at, there are…



Celebrating 60 years of the Breitling Superocean

April 13, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

As Victor noted in a recent discussion he and I were having (talking about Baselworld releases), this really seems to be the year of the anniversary.  Quite a few brands are celebrating milestones for various watches, and Breitling is another one to join that particular party.  For me, I have a bit of a love/hate…



Flying along with the Bremont Solo

April 10, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

While I – and many immersed in the watch world – tend to have our favorite sorts of complications (and complexities) for watches, there is no doubt that a well-sorted, time-and-date-only watch will certainly hold interest for most folks.  Well, today, we are dipping our toes into the waters of simple (again, in terms of…
