Hands-On Review of the Luminox P-38 Lightning

Editor’s Note:  Today, we are taking a look at a brand that we have not had on our pages for some time – Luminox – courtesy of one of our long-time readers, Ken Nichols.  If you like his stuff, you can check him out on Instagram and Twitter.

Look up. It’s a bird, a plane. No, it’s a Luminox P-38 Lightning 9421 GMT watch. This large 44 mm brushed stainless steel bad boy is easy-to-spot on the wrist or, in my case, on the shelf of a local retailer.

Introducing the moVas Bronze Officer

When it comes to the watches that we bring to your attention, we generally like to point out watches that are currently available – I.E., something you can actually buy today. With the moVas Bronze Officer, I am taking a bit of a risk. I caught wind of this watch when a special newsletter subscriber email went out, for which there was a special “insider” pre-order sale kicking in. Given that there are only 50 pieces of this model being made (more on that in a minute), there is a chance that, when the pre-order opens up to the general public, there may not be any pieces left. Even so, this is a pretty interesting watch in my book, so I thought it was worthwhile bringing it to your attention.

Previewing the Mark Carson Ka La GMT

Mark-Carson-Ka-La-GMT-02

I almost entitled this article as an “Introducing” piece, but that would be a bit misleading, as the Mark Carson Ka La GMT has actually been available for some time – it’s just taken me awhile to get it bubbled up to where I had time to write about it. And, as long as I’m “fully disclosing” things, I’ll be up front and point out that the man behind Individual Design, Mark Carson, is also a team member over at aBlogtoWatch. That said, he did not even bring this one up with me to write about, it was just one that I ran across and was interested in. So, with that, let’s have a preview look at the Mark Carson Ka La GMT.

Introducing the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Dual Time

When it comes to new watch releases, there are a handful of features that always seem to grab my eye. First amongst those is a GMT complication, as it has quickly become my favorite one to have in a watch. Throw in some vintage styling (especially with a white or off-white dial), and you can consider my interest to be fully piqued. Needless to say, when I saw the photos of the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Dual Time, I knew it was a watch I would be writing about.

The Mercer Watch Company Wayfarer GMT, Kickstart your Travel Kit

Mercer Wayfarer GMT 01There are a number of watch complications out there, and one that Patrick and I both really like is the GMT.  With the Mercer Watch Company Wayfarer GMT, this new company is bringing this complication to market in their sophomore watchmaking effort.  I wrote about the Brigadier automatic back in March, and it looks like that watch is getting in the hands of the backers, with a positive response.  With that project in its final stages, Mercer is back on Kickstarter looking for funding for project #2.

Exclusive Review: Shinola Rambler GMT

Shinola-Rambler-GMT-18

Back when I reviewed the Filson Journeyman GMT, I noted that, while I liked the watch, the world timer bezel was rather difficult to manipulate (due to a combination of a tough spring and not much area to grip). Today, we are going to take a look at a version that has made some improvements to that bezel – the Shinola Rambler.

Exclusive Review: The Filson Journeyman GMT

Filson-Journeyman-GMT-12

We first brought you word of the new Filson (by Shinola) watches in February. While they are, at their heart, Shinola watches, they have a different look and feel to them that switching to the Filson name allows (sort of how auto manufacturers go for different styles on the same basic platform across brands). My preferences being what they are, I found myself drawn to the GMT models being released, along with their tincloth straps. To the best of my knowledge, we are the first site able to bring you a hands-on review of the Filson Journeyman GMT.
