Hands on with the Pantor Sea Lion Diver

February 17, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Pantor is a watch company based in Hong Kong and – up till now – they only had one model, the Sea Horse. After success with that model, they have released their next model, the Sea Lion.  While not as “extreme” a name as some other brands may use, I personally love the “Sea Lion” name. In my…



Measuring time with the Chotovelli Gauge

February 8, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

While I have been on a bit of a GMT kick as of late (in terms of watches I have been reviewing), I also am now, apparently, on a bit of an Italian kick.  Not that long ago, I reviewed the TCM Orienteering, and now we’re back into the world of Italian watch brands, this…



The Manchester Watch Works Equinox has hit the starting line

January 30, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

We have been covering the releases from Manchester Watch Works since they first hit the crowd-funding scene.  Each one has been something interesting, so I was interested when I saw a new email come in from the brand announcing their latest model.  The Manchester Watch Works Equinox series just went live on Kickstarter today.



These are the voyages of the Ball Fireman Enterprise

December 14, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Well, ok, this particular watch was not bouncing around galaxies for five years, nor did it hit warp speed.  What it did do, however, it set a mark for the most affordable Ball watch yet, as well as spending a good bit of time on my wrist.  With that, let’s have a look at what…



Squaring up with the Shinola Guardian

November 29, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Once again, I find that Thanksgiving is coming up on the calendar, and I have a new Shinola on my wrist for review.  This is a happy coincidence, as I’m often headed back home for the holiday, which is just up the road a bit from where Shinola is based (you can check out our…



Building a look with the help of Grand Frank

November 28, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

As you’re no doubt aware, we here at WWR have started to broaden our focus.  Yes, watches will be our primary mission (that is not changing), but we are expanding into taking a look at interesting items that would fall into the category of “Men’s Style”.  Then again, a watch could simply be viewed as…



Getting smart with the Fossil Q Marshal

November 23, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

I have reviewed a few different watches that would fall into the smartwatch category, but none that would fall into the “true” smartwatch category (i.e., ones that run an operating system and can have apps installed).  As I am not an iPhone user, picking up that watch really made no sense, and in the Android…
