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.

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. Many people have started a watch brand but how many can say they have had 25 years experience before starting one? Not many, unless you are Marcella Dolan from Stella Watch Company. Yes, Marcella has been in the business ...

Rotary Super 7 Scuba Hands-On Review

Rotary Super 7 Scuba ince Seiko announced last year that the SKX was indeed discontinued, watch enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for a replacement. Rotary is not part of the Seiko family, but they have created the Rotary Super 7, a dive watch that could indeed be a replacement. The SKX007 was released in 1996 and quickly became one of the most popular dive watches from Seiko. The design was c...

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...

Marathon MSAR Arctic White

Marathon MSAR Arctic White The Marathon MSAR is one of the smallest watches offered from Marathon Watches and is now available with a white dial, dubbed the Marathon MSAR Arctic White. At 36mm and 14mm thick, it is a beefy but small watch, available in both automatic or quartz variants.

Zelos Thresher GMT

Zelos Thresher GMT The Zelos Thresher GMT, an all-new model from Zelos, a brand that seems to be pumping out new models and new variants this year, despite the pandemic going on. An exciting and intriguing design, the Thresher is a massive hit for good reason. Such a hit, that only the black dial you see in this review is available, all other colors and variants were sold out quickly during the fi...

D1Milano Atlas

D1Milano Atlas The D1Milano Atlas is one of only a few automatic watches available from the Italian based company, known for this specific style of watch case in many different variations. I was not overly familiar with the D1Milano brand, and after checking out their site, I saw that they have a lot of quartz models, but the few mechanicals they do have, which come in a few different colors and c...

Melbourne Burnley Watch Review

The Melbourne Burnley The Melbourne Burnley is a new model from the Australian based company that is inspired by one of Gerald Genta’s famous designs, but at a much cheaper price than what you would expect to pay for a Genta design. Now, as always, some people are against homages or inspired pieces of any kind, and it does get exhausting as most microbrands (not all) are homages of some kind...

Great Lakes

Ocean Crawler Great Lakes The Great Lakes is a new model from Ocean Crawler, a brand known for producing dive style watches since they hit the scene a few years ago. If you follow Watchreport, you have probably seen quite a few reviews of the brand, as I am quite fond of the watches they produce. This Great Lakes is the first dual crown watch with an internal bezel, but not the only one in the lin...

Alkin Model Two Watch Reveiw

Alkin Model Two The Alkin Model Two is the second model from Alkin, a Britain based microbrand. Their fist model, named the Model One, was a field style watch, but this time they give it a go with a diver, and not just any style dive watch, but a dual crown super compressor style dive watch. Available in 3 dials colors and all equipped with a Miyota 9039 automatic movement, sandwich dial, 300 mete...
