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.

Ragazzo-R1

Ragazzo is a brand you might not have heard of, and for good reason, as they are new to the market. Owner and designer, Andrea Ragazzo, has always had a passion for watches, and the Ragazzo brand not only reflects his passion, but also a lifestyle. Andrea is of Italian origin, and raised in Switzerland, which is why the inside of the presentation box has a picture of Piacenza, Italy, which as he d...

Glycine-Airman-17-Sphair

The Glycine Airman 17 Sphair debuted at Basel 2013. While it might be last year’s release, it certainly is not a model for the past. The Glycine Airman is a great looking model with a 24-hour dial, 24-hour rubber bezel and GMT hand. Here are the full specs and the price: Material stainless steel / rubber Diameter:  46mm without crown Height: 10.75 mm with see-through back Finish:   satin/polished ...

Boschett-Reef-Ranger

Today we look at another model from Boschett Timepieces, the Reef Ranger (Version 2). This upgraded and redesigned version of the Reef Ranger, is definitely a more aggressive style, but still refined with some nice improvements in both design and function. The newest Reef Ranger, equipped with a 42mm case, uses hex screw bars for the bracelet attachment, does not have a cyclops over the date like ...

UNIQ-gaf44-watch

Taking a look at the Uniq GAF44, we find a very clean and military inspired watch with just enough bells and whistles to satisfy the collector. The GAF 44 is modern sized, clean, legible, and a good-looking watch that should serve its user for many years. The majority of Uniq models are military inspired; from pilot style to the rugged military style you’ll see here. This is the second version of ...

Triwa-Nevil-Blue-Steel-Watch-Review

Triwa was an unfamiliar brand to me prior to getting the chance to review the Nivel. As always, it is great to check out a new brand and be able to report on it. All Triwa Watches are designed in Sweden (not sure if assembeled there, but more on that later) and use Miyota Quartz movements. The Blue Steel Nivel is a newer variation of their Nivel line, and can be bought retail for $350 USD, which i...

Boschett-harpoon-white-dial

If you belong to watch forums or follow boutique watch companies, you have undoubtedly heard of Boschett and their Harpoon model. Released in 2012, Boschett quickly sold out of the 100-production run, and dive watch fans have been waiting impatiently for the second batch. Well, finally the wait is over! Boschett has two new versions of the Boschett Harpoon, a black dial and a white lume dial. Besi...

Ballast-Odin-watch-review

The Ballast Odin is one of the newer releases from Ballast Watches.  The Odin is a casual, yet rugged watch with some elegant touches. A nice grab and go option being a quartz powered watch. The Odin comes in a variety of color options, grey dial, cream dial, dark copper dial, blue and finishes with PVD and Rosetone. The model being reviewed here is the black dial with brown leather nato style str...

Borealis-Seafarer-Dive-Watch

If you have been looking for an affordable, quality, homage to a Rolex DSSD and/or Tudor Pelagos, well, you don’t have to look further than the Borealis Seafarer. The Borealis’s newest dive model is a combination of a Rolex inspired case and dial, but on a larger scale, with Tudor Style Snowflake hands. Borealis makes no bones about it that it is a homage, actually, they consider themselves for th...

Alpina-Heritage-Pilot

The Alpina Heritage Pilot is a large, classic aviation style watch, which replicates Alpina’s own 1926 pilot watch.  It is a limited edition of 1883 pieces, 1883 being the year the Alpina brand was created.  But let’s not concentrate on the past, and let’s talk about the present and this beautiful new Alpina Pilot. Alpina Heritage Pilot Specs: ALPINA HANDWINDING MECHANICAL CALIBER AL-4...

Magrette Moana-Pacific-Pro-Diver-G14

Newly released from Magrette is their latest version of the Moana Pacific Pro Diver, or MPP Diver as it’s come to be called, in the stainless steel/grey dial. This is about the 5th or the 6th variation of the MPP, and might be, in my opinion , the best. First, let’s take a look at the packaging, which is also new from Magrette. If you have purchased from Magrette in the past, you are probably fami...

Uniq-P-47-Thunderbolt

Uniq’s P-47 Thunderbolt is a nice take on a pilot watch, at a large but manageable size. Using  elements from the P-47 Thunderbolt Plane itself, Uniq has captured the nostalgia and history into their design, especially with the subdials that were modeled to look like the P47’s cockpit. Let’s start this review off with the very “Uniq” packaging they have used for this model. The watch arrives...

Pope-Watches-P70

You might not have heard of Pope Watches yet, as they are a very new brand, but they have released their first model the P70 and so far has been successful. Originally funded through Kickstarter, they are now fully produced and available direct from the Pope Watches Website. Owner Perry Dickson set out to create a vintage Aviation style timepiece and designed everything himself, except the movemen...
