Time for some new cufflinks? Uriel has you covered!

June 21, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

When it comes to Kickstarter projects, it takes something well out of the ordinary to make the dark, cynical hearts of us watch editors (at least here at WWR) to take notice.  Then you have something like the Uriel Geneqt GE001 cufflinks come along, and you just have to rub your eyes, wondering if you’re in a dream (feverish or otherwise).



Laventure Marine promises l’aventure marine

June 15, 2017 . by John Biggs

As you all well know I’m not a big fan of three-handers but friends, just look at that face. This Kickstarter watch promises some lovely French design with an actually Swiss movement and a price tag – oh that price tag – that might make your Madame blush. Laventure is founded by Clément Gaud, a…

When we announced the first release from Zahnd & Kormann—a Valjoux 7751 automatic chronograph at a fairly reasonable price—we celebrated that “all it takes to start a watch company these days is to be a couple of thirty-something guys from Switzerland. Or Australia. Or anywhere in between. And that is fantastic.” And it still is…



It’s like a ring of fire!

April 11, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Unlike the one that Johnny Cash sang about, though, this one shouldn’t burn you.  Rings with luminous material have been pretty popular as of late, and I’ve been interested in them ever since I ran across Black Badger a few years ago.  I have also rather been a fan of the patterns inherent in damascus…
