Ross Davis is a man of conviction and forthrightness. These traits extend from his no-bullshit approach to people to watchmaking. Here’s how…

Hands on with the Holland //01

Neonos is a team of four industrial designers, who have come together to make a forged carbon watch housing an automatic movement. Called HOLLAND //01, it’s an interesting fusion of modern and heritage.

Introducing the Scuro Dive Watch

August 19, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Titanium. Dive Watch. Kickstarter. With those three descriptors, it would seem that we have all the makings for one crazy popular watch. And, judging by the results of the funding project (which finished at 115% of their goal), the popularity has been proven out. While we did not have access to fully-functional versions of the watches the brand was flogging, we did have some pre-production samples in. While funding has closed, we’re certain that these will be hitting some form of retail sales, so read on to see if you’ll be wanting to pick up a titanium Scuro dive watch.

Raven stretches their wings with the Trekker 40

August 17, 2016 . by Victor Marks

At WWR, we’re no stranger to Raven watches. We covered the Raven Vintage, and Raven Vintage 42. Both of those models were strong homages to very early gilt dial Submariners from a well-known company whose name begins with ‘R’.

Yeah, it can be overwhelming at times, but the sheer variety keeps things interesting. It’s even better when you start a relationship up with a brand, and you get to experience their watches changing and improving over time. It was only a year and a half ago that we got to talk about the most affordable forged carbon watch at the time, the Tempest One. Well, as you can guess with that title up above, the second gen has arrived. Read on to see what we thought of the Tempest Carbon2 in our time with it.

Wow. If you are really into vintage-inspired watches, this is the time for you. Specifically, if you are in the original MilSubs (you know, just like that famous Rolex Submariner and the like), then this really is the time for you. Janis Trading recently made a huge splash with their NTH Subs (full review forthcoming), and now Hager comes along with their interpretation of things, with the Hager Aquamariner.

Hands-on with the Filson Dutch Harbor

May 6, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Back in March, we brought you word of the newest watch from the Filson and Shinola collaboration, the Filson Dutch Harbor. In that overview, I felt the watch was a slick take on a dive watch. How does that impression hold up now that I have spent some time with the Filson Dutch Harbor on the wrist? Let’s dive in and have a look.
