  1. Review of two FinWatchStraps

    Straps & Bracelets
    I'd like to offer my thoughts on two straps that I've purchased from FinWatchStraps. First and foremost I've been really well pleased with all interactions that I've had with FinWatchStraps. Their website is informative and easy to use. They are responsive and each strap that I've purchased...
  2. Personal Review: IWC Portofino 40mm

    IWC
    IWC has been one of the more popular watch brands around the world. You name those three letters and most people associate them with their infamous Pilot watches, the Big Pilot, the Spitfires, you name it. However, I find their pilot watches, albeit great ones, are never to my liking. I prefer...

  5. Dailos Waveform - Affordable Titanium Diver

    Reviews
    I spent a little under a week with the Dailos Waveform prototype. This watch is scheduled to go live on Kickstarter in a month or so. I think if they can fix some of the (minor) QC issues on the dial and the bezel for the final production units, this one will be a big success. The dial is quite...
  6. Vario Empire Tuxedo - Art Deco, Affordable & Attractive

    Reviews
    Finally got around to posting my review of this beautifully designed and affordable Art Deco inspired watch from Vario. This was also my first encounter with the Miyota 6T33 hand-wound movement, and I'm glad they put an exhibition caseback on it, because it is quite an interesting looking...
  7. Alkin Model Two - Diver with exceptional legibility!

    Reviews
    I just published my review of the Alkin Model Two, a compressor style diver that has an almost 'minimalist' approach to dive watch design. I love how legible the entire dial is and how effortless it is to read. Detailed written review with macros - Alkin Model Two – Beans & Bezels Happy...

    Omega
    Previously I have also reviewed the constallation line, but for the generation prior to this one. You can find it here Personal Review: Omega Constellation Double Eagle 38mm... That one is sold quite some time ago, and I manage to acquire a newer generation of it. Like my previous review, I...
  9. The Collection Expands! Armin Strom Gravity Equal Force Oster Jewelers LE

    High-end watches
    This was my first High End purchase from an directly from an AD. Really excited about this one, so don't mind the the wall of text ;) I have long been a fan of Armin Strom's work, but only from an artistic and engineering standpoint. Then they released the Equal Force Gravity, which brought a...

  12. Personal Review: Vintage Longines Cal. 30L Gold Watch

    Longines
    Longines have always been the dark-horse of the watch industry, they have a long winding history that dates back even before my parents were born, and is the first company to have ever patented their logo/brand in the watch industry. They have been the “value for money” watches for a longggggg...
  13. Personal Review: Chopard Mille Miglia 42mm Race Edition 2018

    High-end watches
    I don’t understand why Chopard doesn’t have their own sub-forum, because I think they make some really great watches. And their Mille Miglia line does have it’s following. However, of course, compared to other more “traditional” watch brands, Chopard is “miglias” behind! Hahaha... Anyhow, that...
  14. Laco Augsburg Blaue Stunde 39 - The Blue Flieger on a Budget!

  17. Personal Review: Franck Muller Cintree Curvex 5850 SC “Sunset”

    High-end watches
    The Franck Muller brand was a very reknowned, admired, and very saught after back in the days. They created some of the most whimsical complications one can ever imagine, and combined with their daring aesthetics, play of colours, and distinct shape and numerals, one cannot mistaken a Franck...
  18. Hanhart Pioneer Preventor9 - A Month On The Wrist

    Public Forum
    I posted this on the German Watches sub-forum, but figured I'd share it here too. I got to do a more long term review with this watch (over a month, compared to my typical 5-7 days) and I'm glad I was because I love this watch. It seems to have gone completely under the radar and has been a...

    I got to do a more long term review with this one (over a month) and I'm glad I was because I love this watch. It seems to have gone completely under the radar and has been a silent piece in Hanhart's catalog, but this watch just goes to show that there's more to Hanhart watches than the red...
