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…



Doxa SUB 300 50th Anniversary Edition – the 300 is back!

January 23, 2017 . by Neal Goodacre

Doxa has been in the watch making business since the company was founded by Georges Ducommun in 1889. Doxa had patented its 8 day watch movement back in 1908 and this movement was so good that Bugatti used Doxa instruments in their racing cars. There’s a long and storied history leading up to today’s 50th…



The Stevral Megalodon (in bronze) is now up for pre-order

December 7, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

I have reviewed a great many of the Stevral (formerly Benarus) watches, and have a first-gen Sea Snake in my personal collection.  In fact, since I started working with the brand, I think John has only managed to go hands-on with an earlier Megalodon, so great has my affinity been for the brand.  I can’t…

November 18, 2016 . by Victor Marks

The Christopher Ward Trident 600M is a looker. It’s comfortable on the wrist and wears nicely when out and about. More than that, it’s Swiss, powered by a Swiss ETA 2824-2 or Sellita SW200 movement.



DWISS M2 – A Swiss-powered watch with looks

August 13, 2016 . by Victor Marks

The awkward-to-pronounce name aside, what we have here is an interesting watch. What makes it unusual is, well, almost everything. M2 is the third model made by DWISS, and they’ve funded their kickstarter to the tune of $376,668 USD at this time. The hours in the M2 (the name of this new model) are represented through…



Jubileon Superellipse, a Swiss Made watch by way of Singapore

August 4, 2016 . by Victor Marks

Imagine the classic shot of an old world map, with a DC-3 propeller plane and a dashed line trailing behind it showing the journey. If I were making a promotion video of this watch, I would totally use that shot with the line going from Singapore to Switzerland, with a fade to the Jubileon Superellipse watch on the wrist of a gentleman holding a glass of scotch while traveling first-class.



Help Design the new Prometheus Manta Ray

March 14, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Prometheus is a brand that I started working with pretty early on in my watch writing career here at WWR. While we may not have gone hands-on with their products for a little bit now, I have definitely kept tabs on what the company is producing. Their latest effort is going to be a redesign of the Prometheus Manta Ray.
