Don Evans

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.

Brera Orologi SuperSportivo Square

Brera Orologi continues to impress me, and their newest release, the SuperSportivo Square is no different. While it is true that I am primarily a lover of dive watches, the unique design and attention to detail with this new model is hard to ignore, and hard to not appreciate. With a brushed gunmetal case and just a few areas highlighted with polished steel, a multi-layer dial and a square case wi...

anstead_oceanis

Today we get to take a look at the Anstead Oceanis – a dive watch that that is currently selling for $499. While the Anstead is technically a dive watch, I feel it is a great all occasion watch whether in the ocean, the office, or just your everyday watch. This is technically the second version of the Oceanis, or the evolution of the first model. Many might remember that model or still own o...

szanto_5100_5103

Szanto has released their latest model, technically their second diver model, the 5100 series. The specific model I am reviewing today is the 5103, which has the radiant sunburst blue dial. Other dial colors available are black and a silver/grey. Equipped with a Miyota 2415 quartz, a water resistant leather strap, applied markers, and AR coated mineral crystal. The specifications of the 5103 on pa...

Tom_Carter_black_Carbon

Tom Carter is a new brand, with their headquarters based in Cyprus. If you are not familiar, Cyprus is an island below the country of Turkey. The model that I will be talking about here in the review is their upper tier model from the collection, even though the watch is only priced at $360: the Tom Carter Black Carbon. It has a Miyota quartz movement, carbon fiber dial, sapphire crystal, and is 5...

prometheus-piranha

For many out there in the watch collecting world that follow micro brands, I am sure you are familiar with Prometheus Watches. If you are not, then this will be a great introduction for you, as I consider the Prometheus Piranha the best model from Prometheus to date. Now, that is not to say that previous models from them were sub par, there are many great Prometheus models that I have been fortuna...

charmex-swiss-army-conger-nero-suto

Lately I have been reviewing a lot of boutique or micro brands. They are all great values for the most part, but today we get to talk about a more mainstream brand; one that is known for their deep divers such as the record-breaking 20,000ft diver. Today, we take a look at the Charmex Swiss Military Conger Nero Auto, in DLC. The Conger Nero Auto is not their deepest dive watch, but still comes in ...

borealis-sea-hawk

Ah yes, it is time to talk about the Hawk of the Sea. Wait. Hawk of the Sea? Is that such a thing? Well, actually it is. (I had to look it up, I know about watches, not birds). A Sea Hawk, or its official name, the Osprey, is a fish eating bird of prey. What does this have to do with a new micro brand diver? Well, I guess not much really, but I just wanted to share my research with you. Onto the n...

strider-watch-ltd-hyperdrive

Prepare to go into Hyperdrive!! No, wait. I’m sorry…Hyperdive. Yes, a play on words somewhat, but in my latest review we take a look at the Strider Hyperdive. The Hyperdive is the first release from Strider Watch LTD, a new brand that is designed by Jim Skelton. Please take a look at this very comprehensive video (20 minutes), where I cover a lot of detail and point out as much about the wat...

LIV Watches

LIV is a new Swiss Watch company that achieved their funding goal on crowd funding site Kickstarter in just 11 hours, and doubled it just 3 days into their campaign.

Zelos Chroma

Zelos, a newer upstart company, has put up their second model for funding through Kickstarter. Back in July, WatchReport reviewed their first model, the Helmsman. You can revisit that review HERE .

Panzera-Breuer-44

Panzera has released their second model, the Breuer 44. The Breuer, which I describe as a more classic dress watch, but updated to a modern size, is much different than their first offering, which was a Flieger model. The reason that I mention this, is while I love dive watches, so many new companies start off with dive watches. Panzera has gone in the opposite direction. Because, after all, we al...

Elysee-Rally-timer

Start your engines! Today I am taking a look at the Elysee Rally Timer. Before I get into this new Rally Timer model, for information on Elysee Watches, please see a review of their previous model HERE. The Rally Timer, as the name would imply, is a racing inspired chronograph watch. This model comes in two versions: Black Dial and White Full Lume Dial. The full lume dial version is the watch bein...
