Ariel Soltura

Ariel Soltura has had a passion for watches since an early age; one that was passed onto him by his father, who was one of a handful of people to own a Rolex GMT on the island of Cuba, where Ariel was born. Ariel Soltura, who is a full time police officer, husband, father and Dive Watch aficionado, is well respected in the watch community for his honest thoughts and comments on "all things watches." When not patrolling the streets, throwing footballs with the community's youth or perusing various watch forums, he can be found hanging out with his six year old son, Aric, his greatest passion of all.

Review_Barrington_Double_Watch_Winder

To wind, or not to wind, that is the question. For years, automatic watch enthusiast and others who share our passion have asked themselves whether a watch winder is a much needed support tool for their collection, or can they simply continue to manually wind each piece from scratch when their time in the rotation comes up. For others, the tipping point becomes a matter of this or that: Should I s...

elysee siphon watch review

The Sithon, by Elysee Watches, is a timepiece that admittedly is a bit outside of my comfort zone since I’m one whose palate has become accustomed to the taste of larger than life tool divers. As the saying goes, “variety is the spice of life,” and the German born Sithon was just what the doctor ordered: A watch that pretends to be nothing more than an elegant timepiece that tells the time that ma...

Reactor Titan Watch Review

When does a ‘tactical’ watch become ‘tacti-cool’? When you’re wearing REACTOR’s new Titan, a watch purposefully designed to be as tough as the people that wear them. In 2003 the company set out with an ambitious goal. Their intent was to not only create a line of sport watches that would break free from the sport watch norm, but one that would redefine wristwatch performance. Much like human DNA, ...
