Mido Multifort TV Big Date: ready to watch

Mido Multifort TV Big Date: ready to watch

Sure, sure, televisions aren’t really in this shape anymore (and current TV ratios would make for an odd watch on your wrist), but hey, history is what it is. And when you’re going back 50 years in the catalog, you get something that hearkens to the old square tube TVs. The latest Mido Multifort TV Big Date is done up in classic Mido colors.

Recently Released: Breitling Superocean

Recently Released: Breitling Superocean

Breitling is a brand that we are all no doubt aware of. John wrote about them not that long ago (seen here), but I’ve tended not to cover them that much. Not out of any personal animus with the brand, it’s just that their very aviation- and chronograph-focused just have not caught my interest, to put it bluntly. So, it was a pleasant surprise with the release news came in about the new Breitling Superocean collection.

The Zodiac Astrographic is back from outer space

The Zodiac Astrographic is back from outer space

Zodiac has been on a tear. As evidenced by how quickly their Basel release (which we wrote about here) sold out, they know how to take their “old” designs and refresh them for modern consumers. If a pure dive watch isn’t your thing, how about something from the Space Age era? The Zodiac Astrographic made its debut back in 1969, and it’s back again now, 50 years later.

Going Retro with the Certina DS PH200M

Going Retro with the Certina DS PH200M

Back in the 1960’s Certina made the PH200M dive watch. This is a no nonsense, get the job done, sort of a diver. For being “just” a tool watch, it still looks good. There are still some vintage models floating around out there, but now you can get a new one. Certina has brought it back with their new Certina DS PH200M. I was able to get a hold of one to review, and I am liking it.

REVIEW: Original Penguin Dino

 

 

And now, we come to the third brand we’ll be reviewing from the Zeon group of watches.  Original Penguin itself is a brand that’s seen a resurgence as of late, with some retro-inspired clothing. How do I know this? Some of their shirts have actually found a home in my closet – even before this review opportunity.

A Resurrected Diver

A few days ago, I brought to your attention what seems to be a good deal on an solid watch.  Today, we’re going to take a look at another deal I came across – but I’m not so sure it’s as good as it seems.
