Back in November, we brought you a hands-on review of the Electricianz Stone Z (you can see that here). While that dial presented a more refined look for their aesthetic, I’d wager to say that their Cable Z watch is the more recognizable one for the brand. They’ve taken that basic design, and jumped into the Matrix with their latest release, the Electricianz Matrix.

In my book, if you’re going to have more than one watch banging around in the bureau drawer, at least one of them should be a dive watch. It’s a classic and sporty look that also (usually) denotes a watch that’s ready to stand up to some abuse in day-to-day life. In other words, a tool watch. One of the more iconic styles is the compressor-style, easily deciphered by the dual-crown layout (more on that in a second). The most recent I’ve had cross my desk is the Circula Super Sport.
Today, we’re going to be looking at a watch from a brand we’ve not had on our pages before: SYE. They are a French brand that started up a few years ago, and have landed on a unique way of attaching a strap to their watches. While they’ve got a total of five models now, we’re starting out with one of their first – the SYE MOT1ON Automatic 24H.
Lupin III (Lupin the Third) is a 1967 manga and anime from Japan, written by Monkey Punch. If you’re a fan of Hiyao Miyazaki, The Castle of Cagliostro stars the same characters. Lupin the Third is descended from the French master thief, Arsène Lupin. In it, one of the characters wears a watch that did not exist until 2019.
In our book, Oris is a brand that is somehow (and dare we say criminally) overlooked in the broader world of Swiss watches. They constantly produce high-quality and interesting designs. We’ve written about a number of them (you can see those here), and I’ve found myself partial to the Big Crown and GMT-equipped diver lines. However, if you’re like me, you sometimes want something a bit more compact and dressier to slip on your wrist. That, friends, is where the aptly-named Oris Rectangular comes in.
The last couple of time we’ve been talking to you about Hemel, it’s in in reference to any of a number of air-related watches that they have released (you can see more about those here). They’ve also released some diver models, and just recently, their third iteration (aka the HD3) was released – the Hemel Sea Dart.
Oris is a brand that we feel is criminally under-represented out there in wide world of watch writing. They consistently produce solid designs paired with robust construction and movements. Add in that they’ve got a wide variety of designs that would appeal to a wide range of folks, you’ve got recipe for success. Their latest release, the Oris Big Crown X Cervo Volante, turns focus on sustainable deer leather.
