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.

Nezumi Studios Baleine Diver

Nezumi Studios Baleine Diver Smaller, sleeker, retro. These are three words that would describe the trend going on in the world of watches. While over-sized watches are still a thing, they are not as prevalent as they were years ago. More and more companies from microbrands to the big boys are producing watches in the 40mm to 42mm range and the Nezumi Studios Baleine Diver is no different. For me,...

Ginault Ocean Rover Blue Gold

Ginault Ocean Rover Blue Gold Here is a video and many photos of the Ginault Ocean Rover Blue Gold, one of the newest variations from the Ginault Brand. I did a full review on and video on the first Ocean Rover released and also a follow up video with a slightly different variation. The point of this third video and follow up is more about how I am trying to understand the company, their intention...

Favre Leuba Sky Chief

Favre Leuba Sky Chief   The Favre Leuba Sky Chief is another model from the recently revived brand. A few months ago I reviewed the Raider Deep Blue, a dive watch from Favre, this time we take a look at a more casual/dress piece, the Sky Chief. When I hear the name Sky Chief I immediately think of a pilot style watch, though this model looks nothing like any pilot watch I have ever seen. From...

Geckota K1 Pilot

Geckota K1 Pilot We try and cover a decent amount of affordable or budget friendly watches here at Watchreport. I personally have done a few this year, but none has surprised me as much as this Geckota K1 Pilot and I am not sure if it could be topped at this particular price range anytime soon. When it comes to high end or luxury watches, you know what to expect. The best of the best. And while yo...

Dan Henry 1968

Dan Henry 1968 Dan Henry Watches are a hot commodity these days. Many, many watch enthusiasts have been grabbing at least one of the 5 different collections Dan Henry offers. There are good reasons for that. One, of course, is the price. They are very affordable with their most expensive model only being $250; that would be the compressor style diver I reviewed here a few months ago, the 1970. The...

Marc & Sons Diver Watch Professional

Marc & Sons Diver Watch Professional Bucking the trend of smaller watches is the slightly upgraded Marc & Sons Diver Watch Professional. At 46mm and 17mm it is quite big and chunky, though not massively over-sized like most Invicta Watches. These days 42mm is really my sweet spot, so wearing this for a week was slightly uncomfortable, though I did so and even though I would not personally ...

Armand Nicolet J09 | Watch Review

Armand Nicolet J09 Armand Nicolet is a brand that I know in name, but not overly familiar with their watches. It is not one that I see the watch community post about on social media, such as Instagram or Facebook Watch groups often. After receiving this model for review, the Armand Nicolet J09 Day/Date, I honestly had to wonder why this brand has not been getting the love it deserves currently. No...

Nodus Trieste | Watch Review

Nodus Trieste The microbrand watch segment continues to grow, and if you are a follower of us here at Watchreport, you know we review many different microbrands, from the new to the established. Today, we look at a new one, the Nodus Trieste. Microbrands share a lot in common for the most part, but one thing that differentiates some from the others is what type of watch they bring to the market. S...

Favre Lueba Raider Deep Blue

Favre Leuba Raider Deep Blue The name Favre Leuba has been around since 1737. It is the second oldest watch brand, in name, ever. I can go on an on about their history, but that can be easily googled. The brand has changed hands a few times since going defunct in the 1970’s, but was purchased by Titan Co. Ltd in 2011. It took a few years to bring the company back from the ashes, but late las...

Gruppo Gamma MKIV Vanguard

Gruppo Gamma MKIV Vanguard Many here know I have long been a supporter of Gruppo Gamma. They continue to improve their watches and the Gruppo Gamma Vanguard MKIV is no different. With this latest release, there a couple of firsts for the brand. One is the 42mm case size, their smallest to date; an exhibition case back is another and a super sandwich dial. The quality, as usual, is there, especiall...

Victorinox Swiss Army Titanium INOX : Watch Review

Victorinox Swiss Army Titanium INOX The Victorinox Swiss Army Titanium INOX is one of the latest versions of the INOX, and quite possibly my favorite so far. I know they have also recently released a forged/molded carbon fiber version, and though I have not seen that one in person, I think I can still safely say my favoritism lies with the titanium. I have quite a few reasons for that, which I wil...

Dreyfuss and Co. 1924

Dreyfuss and Co. 1924 It still amazes me when I come across a brand I have not heard of. That would be the case with the Dreyfuss and Co. 1924 Series. I had to do some research, unlike some brands that I review, as I knew absolutely nothing about this brand. That of course makes reviewing it a little difficult. Yes, I have the watch in hand, so I can obviously see if it is quality or not, but wher...
