  1. News from the Watch Industry
    Bronze watches are more prevalent now than they've ever been, to a point that I'd argue that there's more bronze than platinum available in the watch market at present day. The appeal is simple. To some, it's nothing more than a colorful alternative to steel, titanium, or DLC. To others, it's...

    UPDATE - June 16th, 2020:As you can imagine by looking at the site, things are still a little limited in terms of time, but after a bit of pondering, we've decided to update this page again with a distinct focus on more entry-level pieces. We polled you all via our Instagram feed, and while not...
  3. News from the Watch Industry
    Regardless of whether or not we're facing a global crisis, there has always been the need for something 'tanky' in any well rounded watch collection. Something capable of taking a beating (though most of us are prone to avoid letting a watch get banged up), or just something we can throw on...
  4. News from the Watch Industry
    It's hard to beat the appeal of a travel watch-even in a time when we're travelling a whole lot less. First of all, they're super functional, as someone who Googles 'International meeting planner' on a weekly basis, being able to glance down at the wrist and quickly gauge the time in some...
  5. News from the Watch Industry
    I've been meaning to pen this review for some time now, yet in hindsight, taking additional time to digest the Moser Pioneer Perpetual Calendar MD is a good thing for several reasons. Most importantly, it's a matter of not letting the sparkle and sheen of its visual characteristics distract...
  6. News from the Watch Industry
    Troubled as these times may be, a handful of brands have decided to forge ahead with the announcement of their latest releases; thus is the case with the innovative indie powerhouse of MB&F. Their 10th Horological Machine-a series dedicated to what we can call 'less than conventional'...
  7. Seiko
    While it may not qualify as one of those 'where were you when…' moments, the forthcoming launch of the Seiko Prospex 55 th Anniversary Collection is certainly a milestone for Seiko and its ardent global tribe of dive watch collectors. Two years ago, Seiko launched the 1968 Automatic...
  8. News from the Watch Industry
    The speculation has been circling for weeks, months even, about the now confirmed cancellations of Baselworld and Watches & Wonders (aka SIHH) for 2020 as the Swiss ramp up their collective defenses against the spread of COVID-19. Time To Move-the big Swatch Group to-do-was the first to fall...
  9. Accutron, Bulova, and Caravelle
    While hunting for details on another new Bulova release that we will be covering shortly, we seem to have fallen on early news that the brand is about to drop cover on yet another classic reissue- the Bulova Deep Sea Chronograph, AKA the 'Surfboard' . These chronographs have been in the...
  10. News from the Watch Industry
    Watchuseek editor-in-chief JMF reviewed the URWerk UR-100 SpaceTime in September of last year , and was duly impressed. Now, the independent watch company-started by watchmakers Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei over 22 years ago-recently launched the URWerk UR-100 SpaceTime Gunmetal , and...
  11. DOXA S.A.
    Today we're going to dip our toes into the world of well-priced vintage-styled dive watches. It's a category with a lot (a LOT) of options, and a comprehensive overview of all the possible choices would be as exhausting as it would be exhaustive. So I've whittled it down to three watches that...
  12. Omega
    You've likely all seen/heard/read the big news this morning-occurring on the overplayed "Speedy Tuesday", no less-about the release of Omega's new Moonwatch Calibre 321 in steel. That's right, as we've been expecting/waiting for, the relaunched hand-winding (and I hate the term) icon of a...
  13. Accutron, Bulova, and Caravelle
    As always, it seems like there are fewer hours in the day and days in the month than there should be. Amidst the backlog that is Watchuseek content I found myself staring at a screen-working on something that I simply didn't have the heart for-and decided my last hours of 2019 deserved to be...
  14. Oris
    Much like that the Alliance fleet finding a fully operational Deathstar in orbit around the moon of Endor, we were surprised to see these two out-of-this-world licensed limited editions from Oris. The first is the Oris Star Wars Darth Vader Limited Edition , and the second is the Oris...
  15. Jörg Schauer & STOWA
    We are celebrating a modest 3-year milestone of Flieger Friday at Watchuseek this December. Our very first post was a review of Stowa Ikarus flieger on December 2016. Over the last three years we have covered pilot watches from around the world including Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy...
  16. News from the Watch Industry
    2019 has been a pretty significant year for the automatic chronograph, and not just because we saw a slew of new additions to the 'most-popular-complication-except-possibly-the-date-of-all-time' category. No, 2019 is the year the automatic chronograph turned 50. In 1969 Zenith, Heuer, the rest...
  17. TAG Heuer
    We watch people just love us a blue face, don't we? The hue of the sky and the sea, it's only natural for a dial - even a chronograph dial - to look fitting in the regal color, no matter the shade or gradient, and no matter the texture applied. I'll personally take most versions of blue over a...
  18. Accutron, Bulova, and Caravelle
    It's been interesting watching the modern evolution of Bulova in the last handful of years, especially when looking at their commerce and distribution model. Being a high-volume entry-level brand, the traditional retail game can be a tough one, which has led the brand to making some fairly...
  19. News from the Watch Industry
    The field watch should be relatively simple, right? By definition, these were meant to be watches worn in the fields of war-super simple to read, not overly complicated in design, and relatively light in weight. The telling of the time should be the field watch's main purpose-in war, timing is...
  20. News from the Watch Industry
    Of the list of industries, interests, and other facets of life that have impacted the world of watchmaking, racing has been in the upper tier of influence for quite some time. It's a logical relationship-where there's racing, there's a need for timing, and since the advent of the chronograph...
