The Division Furtive Type 50 Sets the Time in Lights

February 19, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Well, as I mentioned when I finally got our long-awaited review of the Division Furtive Type 40 up, the review of its younger brother, th Division Furtive Type 50, would not follow that far behind. This is for a few reasons. One, it just plain made sense to group them together, as they are rather…



Spending Time with the Division Furtive Type 40

February 18, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

This review is one that has been a long, long time coming. While we tend to work to get things turned around rather quickly on reviews, this is one that slipped down the queue time and again. This is because, you see, this Division Furtive Type 40 is actually my own watch – the first (and only) watch I backed on a Kickstarter project – and as such, got bumped in priority for those coming in on a loan. Well, that oversight is being corrected today. Even though the Division Furtive Type 40 is no longer available, it’s review will set the stage for a later model in the lineup what we will also be reviewing.



Going Steampunk with the Starling Watch Inception

January 15, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

Though it seems to have lost some of it’s luster and momentum lately, there is no denying that steampunk styling is an active, well, “thing”, for lack of a better term. This is an aesthetic that I had some interest in some years ago, and I still look keenly upon steampunk reimaginings of things. Today, we have a pocket watch – the Starling Watch Inception – that goes for a steampunk feel with an interesting bit of very modern technology hidden under the dial.



The TokyoFlash Kisai Sequence – as Cryptic as You Want To Be

July 9, 2014 . by Patrick Kansa

While some of the offerings from TokyoFlash have been exercises in relearning to tell time, some of their more recent releases have been much easier to read. Their latest, the TokyoFlash Kisai Sequence, is definitely in that easier-to-read camp.



TokyoFlash Puts The Seventies On Your Wrist

November 22, 2013 . by Patrick Kansa

  TokyoFlash has been experimenting with some different case materials as of late, and wood seems to be one of their current favorites. That meant it was only a matter of time before we saw one that was a mashup of ’70s scifi and decor. At least, that’s what I’m picking up from their latest,…



TokyoFlash Spins You Right Round

August 30, 2013 . by Patrick Kansa

  No, no, not like a record, like a propeller.  At least, that’s what I think they’re getting at with their new Blade watch (no, this watch will not turn you into a daywalker either).  The Blade is through and through an aviation-inspired piece, something ala the Perrelet Turbine.  For the bargain-hunter, though, this watch…



Time-It Looks To The Crowds

April 13, 2013 . by Patrick Kansa

  Back in January (here), we brought you a hands-on review of the Time-It watch, a silicone and LED slap bracelet of a timekeeper.  They’re back now with a new model that they’re hoping to bring to market.
