Welcome back to our weekly installment, Watching the Web, where we have a quick look at some interesting watches and articles that have popped up across the World Wide Web over the last week (or so), as well as taking a second look at what some of our more popular articles this week. From the outside world, A Blog To Watch reviewed the first in-house watch out of Porsche Design, and Worn & Wound spent some time with the Tempest Commodore Dive watch. Looking inward, this week’s highlights are a field watch from Triwa and John Bigg’s take on the coming smartwatch paradigm shift.
Ariel over at A Blog to Watch reviewed the Porsche Design Timepiece No. 1, the first watch designed in-house after Porsche Design split from its previous watch partner. Porsche Design has always put out attractive, clean products, and this first effort fits in well with the overall line.
Getting a little bit more grounded, at least in terms of price, Worn & Wound put together a hands on review of the Tempest Commodore Dive Watch. The watch has a titanium case, ceramic bezel, and Japanese automatic that is running in the $500 to $1,000 range, a worthy consideration in that price bracket.
From our pages, the Ball Engineer II Magneto S garnered a lot of views, but that was from over a week ago, so the top review from this week is the Triwa Partisan Lansen. Patrick likes the upscale feel of this affordable take on the green field watch concept. The quartz three hander list for $230.
An article/essay put together by our fearless leader, John Biggs garnered a lot of views this week. He opined about the coming Apple Watch and what it may mean for the watch industry as a whole.
And finally, this is the last week to enter into our current giveaway, so head on over here to for your chance to win a Thomas Ehrnshaw Longcase Automatic.
With that, we’ll wrap things up. As always, if there’s something you think we should be covering, feel free to drop us a line. If you bring something up that we end up writing about, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.

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.
