It’s a new month, to be sure, but we’ll be looking back over the last (and into last month) to bring you some interesting articles I ran across, as well as what you’ve been reading on these pages.
First up, we’ve got a really great overview article on electric watches. While I know that this category has confused me a bit in the past (due to the terminology), this post over at aBlogtoWatch really clarifies things, showing them to be defined as a sort of bridge between the mechanical watch era and the true, full-quartz, era. There are definitely some interesting models in this segment, and Matt Boston runs down the top ten. source
Next up, over at Hodinkee, they’ve showcased something I’ve never seen before – a lumed date display. Frankly, I’m surprised we haven’t seen this in the past (and if you know of other examples, let us know!) as it makes for a great bit of visual flair, for sure. If you want to read some more about this intriguing A. Lange & Söhne model, head on over to the source.
Next up from our own pages, we’ve got a recent review. But first, there was a surprising amount of interest in a post John put up last year that, while primarily about guitar players, showcased a picture of Slash wearing a Breitling. Tenuous associations to horology aside, this could be an interesting book for all you guitar players.
Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got our review of the Berkbinder & Brown T46 V2. When we first saw the watch, we had it in bronze. This time around, we had a much lighter watch to try out, as it was made of titanium. Have no fear, bronze is still available (as is steel). Perhaps I’ve got a little hometown pride here (these watches are made outside of Chicago), but I’ve had fun watching these pieces, and the brand, come along. Take a look at this latest review, and keep an eye out, as we plan to bring you more news as new models are introduced.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
