Welcome to the mid point of January, and our third installment of Watching the Web for 2015, where we here at WWR point out watch related articles across the interwebs that we find interesting, as well as highlighting a couple of our more popular posts over the last week. Looking at other sites, A Blog to Watch had a nice write-up of Arnold & Sons Golden Wheel watch and Worn&Wound reviewed a favorite of mine, the Nomos Metro. Looking back at our own pages, we have Patrick’s review of the Shinola Black Blizzard and my take on the H2O Helberg CH5.
We have covered Arnold & Son here on WWR quite a bit, mainly because they keep producing really pretty and interesting watches. I was considering writing up the Golden Wheel, but since ABTW beat me to it, I will point you toward Ariel’s impressions of this watch. The watch layers in several complications, meshing a jumping hour star wheel complication with a true beat second hand.
Nomos is one of a few German watchmakers who create beautiful, interesting, and modern looking watches with clean, minimalist designs. The Metro adds a splash of color with red and sea-foam green, a choice you don’t see in a lot of watches. Worn & Wound has a nice write up on the watch, as well as news about the brand’s continued development of its in house movements.
Here at Wrist Watch Review, Shinola watch reviews are always very popular, so it was not surprise that Patrick’s review of the Black Blizzard was a top article for the week. The watch houses a quartz chronograph movement in a titanium case with a nicely legible design.
Another popular article was my review of the H2O Helberg CH5, an aviation styled watch from a company that specializes in divers. The beefier case, especially the bezel, made for a mix of style in my opinion. The Miyota automatic powered watch comes in your choice of two styles and is a good value.
As always, we close with a reminder for our monthly giveaway. This month, we are offering the Areion White Chronograph. Patrick reviewed the watch back in September. So if you have not entered the drawing yet, head over to the contest page.
With that, I will 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.
