This month marks five years since John took a chance on an unknown writer, and put me on the path of checking out all sorts of watch-related coolness. It also happens to be my birthday this month. With that double event, I thought it was time for presents – but for you, dear reader!
We have reviewed all manner of straps over the past few years, mostly focusing in on what is available in terms of custom leather options, and affordable (but still higher-end) two-piece straps. It’s not that we do not like NATO straps. That’s not the case at all, as we have certainly reviewed some in the past. It is just that there is such a wide variety of inexpensive ones out there, that we really do not need to cover them. When you can pick them up for under $10 apiece from your favorite outlet, do you really need a review? On the flip side, there are ones out there making something quite different, like Suigeneric, or the brand behind today’s review, Vario.
It’s a new month, which means it is time to kick off a brand new giveaway for you, our loyal readers. This time around, we are going with a dressier option, because everyone should have some sort of dress watch handy. Can’t exactly wear a G-Shock to the summer wedding, can you?
It’s a brand new month, and that means one thing (generally) here at WWR – it’s time for us to spin up another giveaway. While last month gave you the chance for a mechanical with a lot of calendar-related complication, this month we have something that is much simpler – the very spacey G. Gerlach Kosmonaut.
This month, we have an opportunity for you to win a copy of the reissued Benrus Sky Chief.
Our giveaway this month is offering you a chance to win a Projects Watches Newark Museum Watch.
Whatever watch it is that we bring in for review, we always make sure to run down the “hard specs” on a watch. This includes the physical dimensions of the watch, as well as its weight. For our August 2015 Giveaway, we will be giving away the lightest (at 36g) and thinnest watch (< 4mm) watch I have ever reviewed - the Titan Edge.
