Make a better choice than I did: get an Airman Purist for really cheap

May 22, 2017 . by John Biggs

Last week I finally pulled the trigger on a Glycine Airman ($695 on Jomashop) but I had to decide between a Purist model with a true 24-hour movement and a standard model with steel band. I chose the steel band model – I liked the styling better – but now I wish I had waited…

It stands out with exceptional build quality, subtly unique details, and two price points that both deliver great value. This is the first watch from LA-based Nodus—I hope it’s the first of many.

Limes wants you to see their new Pharo DayDate

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.
