I've been an avid watch lover since the age of 7. Watches are not only my hobby but a passion. My favorite style used to be dive watches, but field or non bezel watches have been growing on me. When I'm not reviewing watches I am either cooking or with family and friends.

Rhodus Watches Skull Diver

Rhodus Watches Skull Diver hodus Watches is an upcoming brand, and their first model is the Rhodus Watches Skull Diver. The owner, David, is a watch lover and a somewhat recent microbrand lover and decided he wanted to create his own brand. His first watch is vintage skin-diver inspired, but his special touch is the skull. Skulls and watches are not normally associated with each other, and when it...

Rec RNR Beach Runner

REC RNR Beach Runner ars and watches seem to go hand in hand with collectors, which is why the REC RNR Beach Runner watch seems like a winning combination, at least on paper. Rec Watches is known for recycling parts from vintage or iconic (in some cases, both) airplanes, automobiles, motorcycles, and more to create unique watches that have a story. Their latest endeavor was to take two very differ...

Seiko Sumo Ice Diver Hands-On Review

Seiko Sumo Ice Diver he Seiko Sumo Ice Diver is the latest of numerous Seiko Special Editions to hit the market. This model comes in 3 different colorways-all meant to be examples of colors that reflect off of glaciers, hence naming it “Ice Diver”. The result is two somewhat unique colors for Seiko-the silver/grey dial shown here and a light blue variant, along with a green dial that I am not quit...

Oris Aquis Calibre 400

Oris Aquis Calibre 400 Review t is here. This is the unveiling. The first watch to get the newly announced Oris in-house Calibre 400 is the Oris Aquis Calibre 400, which is quite aptly named. A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to have this watch and a sample movement encased in plastic sent for a first look and review, and while I only had it in hand long enough for photography and to record t...

Audaz Sea Armour Watch Review

Audaz Sea Armour ike many this year, everyone is looking for a deal, or something more affordable, and that extends to watches as well. The Audaz Sea Armour is listed at $400 on their website, but also listed on their website is the opportunity for 30% off by signing up for their newsletter. That brings the price of this large diver to $280, a pretty good price for all that it offers. I am not sur...

Undone Batman Quantum

Undone Batman Quantum aped Crusader. The Dark Knight. The Undone Batman Quantum. Part of the 80th Anniversary of Batman, Undone has been licensed by DC to commemorate this special occasion with some very unique watches. The first two in the series were nice, but both pretty similar cushion-shaped cases with chronographs. For the third watch in the series, Undone went a whole other direction with t...

Ollech and Wajs C-1000 Diver

Ollech and Wajs C-1000 Diver intage, Vintage, Vintage. I say it all the time. Vintage is all the rage. The Ollech and Wajs C-1000  is a vintage inspired diver with a unique dial layout, custom made case, massive crown, and 1000m of water-resistance. The 60s and 70s had some great looking watches, most of them now iconic, so it makes sense to look to the past. Let’s face it, these days, we al...

Stella Felix Dress Blues Hands-On Review

Stella Felix Dress Blues ith all that has happened this year in 2020, it has not seemed to slow down the watch brands, especially microbrands. Enter the Stella Felix Dress Blues.

Pancor P03 Diver

Pancor P03 Diver here are a lot of watches in the microbrand world that are homages. Why do you ask? Well, there are plenty of reasons, but that topic is one that deserves its own article. In this case, some have debated if the Pancor is truly an homage to the Oris Sixty-Five diver, or simply just a nod to the watches of the 60s, where this style was very popular. Well, I would probably say it is ...

Nine Four Successor

Nine Four Successor Despite all that is going on this year, watch brands are still producing new watches. The Nine Four Successor is a new brand and model to me and with a recent wave of Genta inspired designs that I have had in for review, I was not quite sure what to expect, especially considering the very low prices of the Successor. Fortunately, the Successor is not only a very nice watch for ...

Stalingrad Kursk

Stalingrad Kursk Let’s be real. Brand name, no matter the product plays an important role in whether someone will purchase or not. The Stalingrad Kursk, a bronze watch made in Hong Kong, has one of those names that I think many will pass on. There is no getting around it, it is a strange choice for a name of a watch brand. But, a name alone does not make a watch, so what is the $600 price ge...
