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.

Formex AS1100 Chronograph

Formex AS1100 Chronograph Things are changing in the watch world, and have been the past few years. There is a lot of competition in the marketplace with new brands popping up all the time, and along with a  bad economy, and we have seen some brands have to close their doors or sell the company just to keep it afloat. Formex Watches saw the changes happening, and recently they have changed their s...

Elliot Brown Tyneham

Elliot Brown Tyneham The Elliot Brown Tyneham is a hard use watch that does not necessarily look like the typical hard use watch. Think the INOX, but without all the marketing hype. When I say marketing hype, I am not trying to downplay the INOX, I have reviewed 2 different models here on Watchreport. I think they just went a little overboard with the marketing. With the Tyneham, there are some gr...

GSD Pilot Watch

GSD Pilot   The GSD Pilot is the first watch from custom strap maker Greg Stevens. If you are familiar with custom straps, you probably know who that is. For those that don’t, Greg has been making custom leather watch straps and accessories since the mid 2000’s and was one of the first custom strap makers on the scene. His venture into watches has been a slow one. A few years ago he rel...

Stowa Flieger Klassik 40 Ikarus

Stowa Flieger Klassik 40 Ikarus When it comes to Flieger style watches, we tend to think of large or over-sized watches, as that is what they were historically. Stowa has a line of Flieger models that have the aesthetics of pilot watches from the past, but in an array of sizes to fit all wrists. Today I review the Stowa Flieger Klassik 40 Ikarus, a beautiful 40mm German Made wristwatch, with an el...

Momentum Torpedo Blast

Momentum Torpedo Blast It is rare to find an ultra affordable watch with quality components and a nice design. At least not the quality most watch enthusiasts look for. Now, when I say ultra affordable, I know $150 is still considered a lot to the general public to spend on a watch, and while there are many Seiko and Citizen watches out there in this price range, I think this Momentum Torpedo Blas...

Gruppo Gamma Divemaster

Gruppo Gamma Divemaster One of the great things about being a reviewer is getting to see a brand grow. I have reviewed quite a few Gruppo Gamma watches over the years and they have come a long way from the very first model I reviewed. The Gruppo Gamma Divemaster is by far the best watch the company has produced to date, as it should be. Any company that produces a product should always strive to i...

Dan Henry 1970

Dan Henry 1970 It is not very often that I am genuinely surprised by a watch I get in for review here at Watchreport. Most of the time I have a good idea of what the watch is going to be beforehand, but in the case of the Dan Henry 1970, I had no idea what to expect. Saying I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. Now, let me be clear, so there is no confusion, as some people like to...

SJOO Sandstrom UTC Extreme II

SJOO Sandstrom UTC Extreme II SJOO Sandstrom, a brand you may not be familiar with, and might not be able to correctly pronounce (see how I completely butchered the pronunciation in the video). Pronunciation aside, SJOO Sandstrom has quite the array of models, and though I have only seen one in hand to date, I will say I am excited to see more if the opportunity presents itself. Their models are n...

Cobra De Calibre Crossfire 500m

Cobra de Calibre Crossfire 500m If you are not familiar with Cobra de Calibre, they have been around for about 3 years. They have stayed consistent with design, and in fact all models have been variants of this Crossfire 500m. This latest incarnation gives some new dial choices, this being the Classic, and improved water resistance. We cover a lot of microbrands here on Watchreport, as many of the...

DELTAt UMI

DELTAt UMI There are a lot of microbrands out there, new ones popping up all the time in fact. So it goes without saying, just like most products, sometimes you will see some that look similar. While the DELTAt UMI is not a direct copy of anything, the case design is similar to some others out there on the market, though much more affordable. The brand that immediately pops into my mind is Heroic ...

Eterna Super Kontiki Chronograph

Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph When it comes to spending $4700 on a wristwatch, this is not a decision most watch enthusiasts take lightly. The fact is, that is a huge chunk of change and in that price range of luxury watches there are countless options. If you are reading this review, I am pretty sure you read other review sites as well (Don’t worry, its okay). I do so from time to time, ...

Spinnaker Tavolara

Spinnaker Tavolara The latest in the vintage inspired lineup from Spinnaker is the Tavolara. From the website, this model was named after the small island off the northeast coast of Sardinia, Italy which is a haven for scuba divers due to its incredible array of coral and marine life. I would say that is a good name to give to a dual crown dive style watch, though for the watch itself, I would cla...
