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.

Phoibos Eagle Ray

Phoibos Eagle Ray The Phoibos Eagle Ray is the latest model from the young Chinese company, and as I state in the video review, a good step in the right direction. If you were to look at the Phoibos website, you will see most of their watches have been somewhat homages (some more than others), and the Eagle Ray is a departure from that. This model has a lot more of its own identity and is still a ...

Marc & Sons Diver Sport

Marc & Sons Diver Sport We have reviewed many Marc & Sons watches over the years and they have always proved to be a decent value and good quality for the price, especially the ones with ETA movements. The Marc & Sons Diver Sport is built as well as the others we have reviewed and while it definitely is a familiar style, there are a few differences that allow it to not be a straight co...

Lum-tec Combat Field X1

Lum-tec Combat Field X1 I have long been a fan of Lum-tec watches and I have shared that here many times. Their latest model, the Combat Field X1 might rank at the top if not be the definitive Lum-tec for me to date. The X1 at first glance might look like  other Combat models from Lum-tec, but is actually a modernized version of a field or trench watch. I love when a brand can think outside the bo...

Scurfa Bell Diver

Scurfa Bell Diver Some of you reading this may already be familiar with the Scurfa Bell Diver and it might seem like this review is a bit late. Yes, Paul from Scurfa came out with this watch over a year ago, and I have just recently got one in hand. For whatever reason, I never reviewed this watch when it originally debuted, and to be honest, I am glad that I didn’t, because now it comes wit...

Votum Blue Ocean

Votum Blue Ocean Sometimes I just never know what to expect when a watch for review arrives. You may be thinking, well, you know generally what watch the company is sending you and what it looks like, right? In most cases, yes, though sometimes I do not. In this instance, I was familiar with Votum as I reviewed a previous model a few years ago, but I can say the Votum Blue Ocean exceeded my expect...

Carpenter Brooklyn Field

Carpenter Brooklyn Field Classic. Traditional. Vintage. These words are what comes to mind when I look at the Carpenter Brooklyn Field. It is a field watch that looks like something maybe my grandfather would have worn. At 40mm, it is probably a little larger than a true vintage piece, but 40mm is the new “it” size these days with a lot of brands. The trend seems to be smaller and more...

Sea King SK-1

Sea King SK-1 I’ve always said that it must be hard to start a new watch brand, not just on the financial side but also because of design. So many people say they want something different, then they see the price tag and claim that is outrageous. So then we come to the homage side of thing, and we all know how many out there are vocal about not liking homages. I have my own limits on homages...

Obris Morgan Nautilus

Obris Morgan Nautilus “Man, Obris Morgan watches all look the same!” “I wish Obris Morgan would do something different! ” To the people that posted comments like these or similar, Obris Morgan did something different. Immediately when I saw their latest model, the Nautilus, being posted on social media a few months ago, I said, well, they went against the grain for sure. Fo...

Spinnaker Bradner Dual Crown

Spinnaker Bradner Dual Crown Spinnaker Bradner Dual Crown Specifications: 42mm Stainless Steel Case 50mm Lug To Lug 14mm Thick 22mm Lug Width Seiko NH35 Automatic Movement 150 Meters Water Resistant Leather Strap Price $285.00  https://www.spinnaker-watches.com/pages/spinnaker-vintage-bradner-collection-sp-5057 I have reviewed a lot of Spinnaker Watches over the years here on Watchreport, but I ca...

Crepas Loggerhead

Crepas Loggerhead If you are not familiar with Crepas Watches, you have probably not been following microbrands for that long. Crepas hit the scene a few years ago and between Crepas and their sister brand Tactico, they have surely made a name for themselves. Some of their more popular releases have been the El Buzo, the Tektite and the Cayman 3000. That brings me to the one I have in hand today, ...

MTM Special OPS Hypertec-Hands on Review

MTM Special OPS Hypertec When I think of MTM Special OPS watches, this Hypertec watch is not what really comes to mind. It is not chunky, it is not overly “tactical”, it doesn’t have any special lighting system and is not touted as being a military watch or a professional diving watch.  I am still not sure what genre to list this Hypertec in other than a sports watch, and I think...
