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.

Athaya Vintage Lamafa watch review

If you are a fan of vintage looking watches, especially a fan of the vintage Seiko 6105-8110 diver, but would rather something a little more modern in terms of materials, then you are probably going to love the Athaya Vintage Lamafa. Athaya is a brand out of Indonesia, and this is their second model. Their first was a Laco Pilot homage. Now, while this is an homage, it is an homage of a piece that...

hager watches commando professional

Hager Watches was founded in 2009 by Pierre Brown, or as he likes to be called, Pete. Their first model was the Commando series, which was a Mil-Sub homage with a Seagull auto and came in around $260. It was a nice enough watch, and a good entry point for the brand. But the Commando Professional series is definitely a step up for the brand, and a much higher quality watch, with a HGR 52 movement (...

momentum m1 mini

Today I discuss something not normally seen in a WatchReport hands on review; a ladies watch. But hey, women like watches too, and Momentum makes a very nice classic sized diver in the form of the M1 Mini (amongst a few other ladies watches). With a retail price of $185 on the bracelet (as reviewed), and a around $130 for the rubber strap version, it is certainly not going to break the bank, and f...

Titoni Seascoper

Today I get to share with you a brand that you are probably not familiar with. As a matter of fact, I had never heard of it myself. Which is surprising seeing as the company has been producing watches since 1919. Well, kind of. In 1919 Fritz Schluep started making watches in Grenchen, Switzerland. In 1952, they transitioned officially to Titoni. Today, they are still making quality Swiss Made Watc...

Brera Orologi Eterna Chrono II

Today I take a look at another Brera Orologi Watch. This will be the third watch I have reviewed from Brera Orologi and while they are mostly quartz and quartz chronographs, which I know is not the most preferred choice of movement for the watch enthusiast, Brera makes up for it when it comes to attention to detail and finishing. This model is the new Eterno Chrono II and comes in 4 versions, but ...

Morpheus Master Chef Culinary Watch Review

Today I review something a little bit different. Many watches have a theme, such as a dive watch, pilot watch, sailing, yachting, field watch etc, today we look at the Culinary Watch, by Morpheus Fine Watches, or its full name the Master Chef Culinary Watch. Now, while most of the theme or styled watches I spoke of are modeled after or meant to be used in those specific categories, the Culinary Wa...

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...
