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.

Hammerhead II

Zelos Hammerhead II Long-time fans of Zelos surely know the Zelos Hammerhead, a chunky cushion-shaped style dive watch that has proven to be one of their best selling models.  Because of that, Zelos has recently released the Hammerhead II. While the Hammerhead has had a few variations through the years, this second edition is updated with a slightly new dial, a Helium Release Valve and a new brace...

Crafter Blue Hyperion

Crafter Blue Hyperion Earlier this year we had an article about the Crafter Blue Hyperion when it launched on Kickstarter. The initial batch of watches has now shipped and the Hyperion is available for purchase on the Crafter Blue Website. I have to say, this is an unusual review for me, as I don’t believe I have ever reviewed the same (or mostly the same) watch twice by two different brands...

Marloe Morar

Marloe Morar Beacon Dive watches are some of the most popular watches out in the market, and that probably will never change. The dive watch is functional, sporty, generally attractive and can be worn in almost any setting or any activity. The Marloe Morar is Marloe Watch Company’s take on a dive watch, and while it may look derivative at first, I feel they put their unique spin on the dive ...

EMG Horizon

EMG Horizon Are you a Breaking Bad fan? Steve McQueen maybe? Been lusting after a Tag Heuer Monaco but just don’t have the cash? Well, the EMG Horizon is somewhat close, and much more affordable, coming in at under $400. While most homage watches are copies of Rolex or Panerai, EMG went a different route and gave us their interpretation of a classic square chronograph. Though similar to the ...

Seiko Street

Seiko Street Series Seiko USA has released two exclusive versions of the very popular and affordable solar tuna divers, dubbed the Street Series. Part of the Prospex line-up, these versions are only available through Seiko USA. Yes, these are not entirely new models and while the changes for these versions are mostly aesthetic, the new look is very attractive. Both models have a new handset, with ...

Formex Essence

Formex Essence The Formex Essence has been making a big splash in the watch community and it is easy to see why. Available with a COSC or standard Swiss Movement in all variations, the one we are looking at today is the Degrade or gradient dial. All versions look great but the COSC version is the big deal here, especially at a price of well under $1,500. Yes, a COSC certified watch for $1,265. Not...

Raven Solitude

Raven Solitude If you have always been a fan of Raven, but maybe they were just a little too expensive for you, the Raven Solitude should be a little more within your grasp. Yes, this is a budget model from Raven, but when I say that, it makes the watch sound cheap. I don’t believe this to be a sub-par watch compared to other models, but yes, a few things were done to get the price down lowe...

Ocean Crawler Dream Diver

Ocean Crawler Dream Diver If you are a fan of dive watches, Ocean Crawler is a brand you want to check out. Their latest model, the Dream Diver, is a bold offering, with a 44mm case, large indices and hands, 600 Meters WR and a helium release valve. Internally, you are looking at a Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement. Ocean Crawler releases quite a few models each year and shows no sign of slowing ...

Boldr Expedition 2019

Boldr Expedition 2019 Boldr Supply Company is quickly becoming one of the most popular microbrand watches companies out there, and for good reason. Their latest model, the all-new and redesigned Boldr Expedition is a fresh take on their field watch and integrates some elements from their Odyssey lineup yet retains much of the original Expeditions’ DNA. The brand has also kept the price affor...

Bern Milford Diver

Bern Milford Diver The Bern Milford Diver and the journey to their¬†Kickstarter Campaign have not been an easy one. One of their first prototypes, (shown in this review) did not have a rotating bezel. It also was not QC’d very well either, as you can see in many of my photos that there is a lot of dust under the crystal. Yes, that is the watch that was sent to me for review, but knowing this ...

Bangalore Mach 1

Bangalore Mach 1 Often, many of the brands I present might be new to you, but sometimes they are new to me as well. Take this Bangalore Mach 1, and the Bangalore Watch Company, a brand I had never heard of before I received an email from them. The Mach 1 is not their first model, but one the brand is really proud of and one they want to get the word out about. Starting at $680, the Mach 1 is a cla...

Titoni Cosmo Automatic

Titoni Cosmo Automatic Have you always wanted a Rolex Datejust, but just do not have that much coin? Do you like sunray dials or just a somewhat flashy but not overdone dress watch? All those things describe the Titoni Cosmo Automatic and with a price of around $1000 USD, it is not a bad pickup. Titoni is a brand that has been around for 100 years, (starting out as Felco) and claims to be one of t...
