Scribing Lines with the Richard Mille RMS05 Fountain Pen

January 26, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

While we have featured a lot of different watch brands at WWR over it’s 11+ year history, I am fairly confident that Richard Mille is not one to have graced our pages. This is not due to their watches being bad (they’re not) or some other snub. No, simply put, what they offer, while exciting, does not mesh with our mission to bring you news from the more affordable end of the market. This does not necessarily change with the Richard Mille RMS05 Fountain Pen – but when I saw it, I knew I had to write about it.

Thinking Spring With the Dietrich Organic Time

May 4, 2015 . by Patrick Kansa

When it comes to watches, you suffer no lack of choice when it comes to case shapes. You have your classic styles, your vintage/historic shapes, and then you have a category where a brand comes up with something that is perhaps viewed as taking things in a new direction. Some of these case shapes do not work out well, and others (such as on the Visitor Watch Co Duneshore) are rather stunning. As to where the Dietrich Organic Time falls, hard to say without seeing it in the steel, but I think it’s making a claim to the positive.

Introducing the Savoy Epic Vault

April 17, 2015 . by Patrick Kansa

Last month was the annual watch show known as Baselworld. In the run up to the show, we had a lot of press releases coming in on things that were to be announced. Then of course as the show got underway, there was another tidal wave of information. This meant that there was a watch I had intended to write about that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle. While Baselworld is now behind us, I think its still worthwhile for us to take a look at the Savoy Epic Vault.

Introducing a revived brand and new watch: the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière

March 9, 2015 . by Patrick Kansa

  Late last week, we caught wind that a “new old” brand was starting up. Angelus is a company that likely not many of us have heard of, but it is a brand that has a history, one that includes some rather interesting innovations. Of course, we have seen nameplates resurrected before, and the history…

Grieb & Benzinger Creates A Market For Grey

October 21, 2013 . by Patrick Kansa

  I’ve featured a variety of watches on these pages that have made use of “recycled” vintage watch movements, breathing new life into something that would otherwise be destined for the back of a drawer or the smelting pot. Many of these are placed into competent, modern watches, hidden away under a dial. With the…

  Today, I want to cover a brand we’ve not really looked at here at WWR – JEANRICHARD. They’ve created a variety of higher-end sports watches, and I want to focus in on one that I don’t know I’ve seen covered recently.

And Now, A Retrograde Quartz

September 27, 2013 . by Patrick Kansa

  Today’s post was originally intended to be a hands on review of a watch from the newer brand Antonius Graf Strachwitz (for brevity, referred to as AGS throughout). However, due to an unfortunate issue with customs, it looks like that hands-on review isn’t to be. That said, I think the piece has some interesting…
