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.

Pablo Profundo Rolex Homage

Pablo Profunfdo Rolex Homage Do you know a statement that is not regularly said in the watch community? “We need another Rolex homage!” There is a good reason for that, as the watch world is flooded with these homages, especially for the submariner style or dive style of watches that Rolex produces. Today I am looking at the Pablo Profundo Rolex Homage. These days, its all about the vi...

Phoibos Great Wall | Hands-On Review

Phoibos Great Wall Break the Walls Dowwwnnn! That is what has been going through my head as I write this review. If you are familiar with Chris Jericho you will get that reference, but on a more serious note, the Phoibos Great Wall is the latest upcoming model from this Chinese microbrand and is another watch that offers a lot for not that much money, just $500 to be exact. That $500 gets you a re...

Hanhart Racemaster GTM

Hanhart Racemaster GTM It is no secret that I have a soft spot for Hanhart Watches. This Hanhart Racemaster GTM is no different. I have long been saying that Hahhart makes not only amazing watches but the value is incredible and this latest model I am reviewing only reaffirms that. This model is more expensive than most Hanhart watches but that does not mean you are not getting any less, if anythi...

Vero Watches SW

Vero Watches SW American watchmaking used to be very prominent but as many things do, that changed and for the most part, was a thing of the past, that is up until the past 8 years or so. Many brands, especially start-up or microbrands are assembling their watches in the USA, including brands like Nodus and Lum-tec. A few brands are actually machining the cases and even making movements in the US,...

Victorinox Alliance Sport Chronograph

Victorinox Alliance Sport Chronograph A Swiss Army was one of my first “real” watches, purchased from a now-defunct jewelry store back in the early ’90s. It was a Calvary model, and it was about $100. Prices have sure gone up since then and the watches are no longer branded Swiss Army as we all know, but now Victorinox. The brand still holds a special place in my heart and while ...

Outsiders Revolution

Outsiders Revolution Today, we are going to veer off the normal review path a little. I am sure many know that Baselworld is almost over at the time of publication and Outsiders Watches apparently made a spectacle at the watch fair, or so they have said. Their first watch, the Outsiders Revolution diver is a $500 Swiss Made Submariner style homage and there is a lot to delve into when it comes to ...

Zelos ZX Chronograph

Zelos ZX Chronograph With so many new microbrands these days, you would think some older brands such as Zelos would get lost in the shuffle. Taking a look at this Zelos ZX Chronograph and how many of them have already sold out, you can see that is not the case. Zelos and its owner Elshan has continued to push forward and he keeps coming out with new designs and believe it or not, this is actually ...

Rebel Aquafin

Rebel Aquafin The Rebel Aquafin was a Kickstarter funded that funded back in 2017, though watches did not start to ship really till December of 2018. I am not sure what issues in manufacturing that the brand had, but the watch did finally start reaching the customers who backed early. Kickstarter is usually a place where you can get a really good price on a watch, after all, you are helping to fun...

Boldr Globetrotter GMT

BOLDR Globetrotter GMT If the BOLDR Globetrotter GMT looks somewhat familiar to you, that would be because it is an evolution of the BOLDR Odyessy, a watch I reviewed HERE last year. The Odyessy was a very nice watch, but a little on the large size for myself and others, and also a little more fashion over function, at least for me. The Globetrotter is smaller in diameter but also has quite a few ...

Crafter BLue Mechanic Ocean

Crafter BLue Mechanic Ocean Crafter Blue started out making custom rubber straps for a few popular Seiko and Tudor watches and have not crossed over into producing watches as well. Their fitted rubber straps are great no doubt and can really change the look and comfort of your watch. Let’s face it, most Seiko rubber straps leave a lot to be desired. Entering the extremely crowded (some would...

Elliot Brown Holton

Elliot Brown Holton Indestructible. Tough. Reliable. These are some of the words I have seen used to describe the Elliot Brown Holton.  The Holton is a watch that had significant input from a branch of the British Military and is the first British Military issued watch in over ten years, claims Elliot Brown. Now, I say claims, as I do not really have any way to dispute that, at least not without s...

Jubileon Superellipse Chronograph Watcha Edition

Jubileon Superellipse Watcha Edition Jubileon Singapore is about to launch their latest watch, the Jubileon Superellipse Chronograph. There will be a preorder and possibly a Kickstarter but today I will be concentrating on the Watcha Edition. If you are not familiar with Watcha, it is a popular Facebook Group and website and they have collaborated with Jubileon to do a special edition of this upco...
