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.

Luxmento Naylamp Rescue II watch review

I am always amazed at what you can get these days in the watch world, for an affordable price point. ($300 and under). Of course affordable is subjective to your income, but I think many can agree that 15-20 years ago it was different. Before the internet became huge, and we had watch forums and blogs galore and online retailers, for this price point you were going to a department store or mall je...

glycine combat sub

Sometimes in the watch hobby, (myself included), I think we use the term value incorrectly. Or maybe that “value” is subjective to each individual. Either way, I feel the Glycine Combat Sub is a great value. It might not be ultra affordable, but it definitely has a lot to offer for the price. Many might be familiar with the Glycine Combat Sub line, and some may not, but I often feel this model is ...

Alessandro Baldieri SM-46 Seamonster

  Baldieri SM-46 Seamonster   In the world of micro brand watches, there are a lot of homage watches, and some original designs. Today I get to discuss the latter, an all original design, in the form of the AB SM-46 Seamonster. For those not familiar with the brand Alessandro Baldieri, it is named after the owner, whose former career was an interior designer. Alessandro was born in Italy...

Bertucci A3-T Navigator Ti-Matic

Last July I was able to review the Bertucci Vintage 44 Illuminated Field Watch here on WatchReport. You can see that review HERE . I was impressed with the look and feel of the watch and the overall construction, as Bertucci in my opinion really tries to create the perfect watch for those out in the field, or someone wanting a casual watch that is still rugged and can take abuse. That particular m...

Scurfa Watches Diver One Silicone

As the title states, this is a look at the upgraded Scurfa Diver One Silicon. You might remember the review that Michael Wolfe did on the previous version last year.. if not check it out HERE What Scurfa, and owner Paul Scurfield decided to do was give it some upgrades, and keep the price basically the same. So now you have a lumed ceramic bezel instead of aluminum, a domed sapphire crystal., a si...

Gruppo Gamma Vanguard

Gruppo Gamma Vanguard Watch Review Gruppo Gamma. It might be a brand you have heard of , and it may not be. Either way, right up front, Gruppo Gamma for the most part, produces homage watches, mostly Panerai inspired homage watches. Now, I know some people have issue with homage watches, but Gruppo Gamma has become a popular brand in the internet watch community, and I decided to review one here f...

obris morgan explorer 2

Obris Morgan is a brand that continues to impress me. Some might say I could be a fanboy of them, and for the most part, I would say that is probably true. But there is a reason. Obris Morgan continues to build a fantastic watch for what might be the best value when it comes to micro brand dive watches. The Explorer 2, is an update to the Explorer model released in 2013. While there are not a ton ...

momentum m50 mark II

When it comes to dive watches, I have reviewed many here, from the affordable to the more high end, automatic and quartz. Quartz is sometimes a word that is taboo in the watch community, as many people tend to prefer automatics. But there is something to the “grab and go” quartz, at least to me, and a no nonsense dive watch. Enter the Momentum M50 Mark II, this time with a full luminous dial. This...

zelos chroma

Recently, the talk of Zelos Watches has been centered around their upcoming Abyss Diver, but their second model, the Chroma is still relatively new and recently I was able to take it for a spin, and give my opinions of it. The Zelos Chroma comes in two different versions, a standard 3 hand with a solid dial and a skeleton dial. This review will be on the solid dial version. The first thing that st...

glycine_f104

I am admittedly a big fan of Glycine. They are more mainstream than some brands and many of the watch community own at least one of their models, or have at least heard of them, but they are still somewhat more niche than say Tag Heuer or Hamilton. They have a wide range of models, from the Combat Diver models, to the Lagunare, to their classic dress watches and the ever popular Airman models. Tod...

minuteman

We here at WatchReport review a lot of watches, myself included of course – this is a review site after all. I always try and concentrate on the watch and the price when doing my reviews, and while this review is not really different, it is rare that I can discuss the motivation behind the company. Yes, the Minuteman Brand makes watches, but they have also had knives produced for them and ar...

panzera flieger

Black and Blue. The burger you ask? No. A bruise? Nope, not that either. The new Panzera Flieger 47? Yes, that would be what I am referring to. As the name would imply, the Panzera Flieger is 47mm and is another take on your standard pilot/flieger watch. There’s definitely a strong similarity to an IWC Big Pilot, though you can get a Panzera Flieger for a fraction of the price. But will it b...
