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.

helm_watches_vanuatu_watch_review

*Update 4/13/18* New Video on V4 of Helm Vanuatu  One of the newest micro brands to emerge is Helm Watches, and their first model is the Vanuatu. (Pronounced Van-Wa-Tu). Manufacturing and shipping out of Hong Kong, Helm Watches are your typical micro brand budget diver, and has that “tool” diver look many watch guys like these days. The case, dial and bracelet take cues from a few different brands...

Maurice_Lacroix_Pontos_watch_review

Maurice Lacroix Pontos I can’t deny I am pretty excited to share this timepiece with our readers, the Maurice Lacroix Pontos Diver. A vintage styled, luxury (in my opinion) diver. Since it was first released last year, I fell in love with it via pictures. Getting it in hand for review only strengthened that love, although there are a few things that could be improved. Though I have a few minor qui...

elysee_dual_timer_watch_review

Elysee is a brand that I have covered here on WatchReport a few times, and for the most part they deliver a solid & attractive watch at a good price point. The Dual Timer I am covering here today is no different, and while not necessarily a bang for your watch, it is not offensively overpriced compared to what is on the market. The Dual Timer comes in 3 color variations, the black with lime gr...

exa_osprey_watch_review_watchreport

In the world of micro brands, there are many choices these days. Many new upstarts, and many different styles being offered. Dive watches still seem to be the most produced, as there is something about that rugged style the dive watch offers, even if most of us never even dive. Hexa is not necessarily a new brand, or a 2-month-old brand, as they have been around for about 3 years or so. Hexa’s fir...

Sablier_Grand_Cru_watch_review

While I get to review many watches here on WatchReport, there’s no doubt that some watches strike me more than others. The Sablier Grand Cru is one of them. The funny thing is, it is not particularly my style, but yet I truly am enamored with it. Why you may ask? No, it does not have the prestige of say a Rolex, JLC or many other brands, nor have an inhouse movement, or even a movement that ...

tired_watch_co_trail_blade_watch_review

Watches and Tires?  Seems like a common pairing when you think about it. Many watches use rubber in the seals and gaskets, and of course with bezels, pushers and most commonly, rubber straps. Tires are of course made of rubber. Some brands have been doing Tire inspired watches for years, most notably Chopard with their racing series. That brings me to my latest review, the Tire’d Trail Blade. If y...

Nezumi_Studios_Voiture_Chronograph_kickstarter_review

Today we get to take a look at the Nezumi Studios Voiture Chronograph, a watch designed with that 60’s/70’s vibe, a throwback if you will. Vintage style watches have become all the craze lately, with Omega, Tudor and others doing modern renditions of their classics and micro brands have been getting in on the action as well. Nezumi Studios is a Swedish Company known for producing denim...

Gruppo_Gamma_Vanguard_Titanium_Watch_Review

Gruppo Gamma, a brand that I have reviewed here a few times, continues to improve and impress. Now, before I continue, I want to get something out of the way. Yes, the Vanguard and other models get their inspiration from Panerai of old. And so does Benarus, along with many other countless brands. I understand there are purists out there that only like the “real” deal. Well, unfortunately everyone ...

Aubert_Freres_Durand_watch_review

Its funny how sometimes you can come across a watch brand that has history dating back to 1881, yet have never heard of it. With the amount of watch brands out there though, it’s just hard to keep track of every one, no matter how old they might be. That brings me to the watch and brand I am reviewing today, the Aubert Freres Durand. Aubert Freres has quite a history as well. Here is the lin...

helberg_ch8_watch_review_WatchReport.com

In the micro brand world there are a few extremely popular watch brands, and this one I am discussing today, Helberg, is near the top for sure. For those not familiar, Helberg is sort of the sister brand of H2O watches. Both are geared mainly towards dive watches, though Helberg did release a model that was more a pilot style. The difference between the two is there are not as many options with He...

Erroyl Heritage Royal 300 Watch Review

Let’s get dressed up!!! That is something I do not say often. These days I do not have to get dressed up that often, but I can say that putting on the Erroyl Heritage 300 had me looking at the girlfriend and saying lets get dressed up and go for a night on the town. Maybe you get dressed up more often, whether for work or play, and a nice affordable dress watch will fit right into your rotation. O...
