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.

obris-morgan-pradata

No, no, no. Not Prada. Pradata. The Obris Morgan Pradata. The name might be a little weird, and I am not sure of the origin, but one thing is for sure, after my time with this new diver model from Obris Morgan, it is an excellent value when it comes to a dive watch. These days, many of us watch enthusiasts are always looking for a good value or bargain, or as some say “bang for your buck”. Sometim...

Magrette Dual Time

Magrette has announced the preorder for their new Magrette Dual Time. Taking cues and inspiration from their Regattare 2011 model they have designed a new version in a slightly smaller case that comes in at 42mm.  

arimida-a10

I don’t want to alarm everyone, but there has been a Panda invasion. Well, kind of, at least in the micro brand watch world. Armida has recently released their take on a classic, the Rolex Daytona Paul Newman edition, or as Armidas are calling it, the A10 chronograph. The A10 comes in a choice of two dial colors – black with white subdials, or white with black subdials and there is also two ...

Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moonlite

The exclusive Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moonlite was unveiled at Baselworld 2014. Limited to only 59 pieces worldwide and a price tag of roughly $20,000 USD, this watch is certainly more for your high rollers, or the upper echelon of the watch buying public. But, just because you or I might not be able to afford it does not mean we can not marvel at its unique case material and design, its 23 jewel a...

Brera-Orologi-Dinamico-watch-review

-Brera Orologi Dinamico First Impression Video- I’ll be the first to admit watches such as the Brera Orologi Dinamico are not usually my typical style. I like more of a rugged timepiece, but there is always a place for a nice casual/dress chronograph in everyone’s collection. Especially when dressing up for a night on the town or going to the office. Brera Orologi is a brand I was not too familiar...

Lum-tec Combat B 2015 Concept

Following up with their success of the Combat B line, Lum-tec has recently shown concept renderings of the Combat B 2015. This new Combat B, would be not only an affordable quartz option, but the case made of a new material for Lum-tec: Aluminum. 6061 Aircraft Grade aluminum to be exact. I personally am not familiar with aluminum watches , so this is something that has intrigued me. Lum-tec has st...

zelos helmsman

  Zelos Helmsman   These days, there are many companies that are funding their watch projects through Kickstarter. This is how Zelos Watches received their funding, and was extremely successful as they were able to produce their first model, the Helmsman. I have been following Zelos’ progress for some time, as the Helmsman looked intriguing to me as it’s not like every other diver or mic...

bertucci Vintage 44 Illuminated

Bertucci Vintage 44 Illuminated First Impression   What is a field watch? What kind of watch would someone want when in the “field”, or hiking, camping, or other outdoor activities? Solid construction. Easily readable. Fewer breakable components. Night-time illumination. Light weight. This is what we have with the Bertucci Vintage 44 Illuminated. Solid titanium construction, including the sol...

elysee-Hemmersbach-watch-review

One of the great things about reviewing watches is the ability to take a look at brands you have never heard of, or are not too familiar with. That would be the exact case with the Elysee Brand and the Hemmersbach model I am reviewing today. When there is not enough information to go off, I don’t really have any preconceived ideas about the watch, which means I get to really get a true first look ...

Haigh-&-Hastings-m2-diver

In the world of micro-divers there is no shortage of competition, and just when I think that I know all of them out there, another brand pops up. This time it is Haigh & Hastings and their M2 Diver. Haigh & Hastings headquarters is located in Perth, Australia.  Now I could be wrong, but unlike a lot of micro brands these days, they did not do a preorder, and just went into production and r...

Ballast Jolly Roger Hands On Review

 If you have been paying attention to fashion over the past couple of years, you might have noticed that skulls, in all forms, have been popping up in the jewelry and watch world around the globe. From rings and necklaces, to high end and fashion orientated watches and more. And all types of skulls as well, from the traditional, to sugar skulls, to even the more cartoonish. As a result, we have th...

Kentex-Marineman-watch

A friend of mine introduced me to the Kentex brand, and put me in touch with the owner. From talking to the owner by email and doing some research on the info he sent to me, I found out that Kentex has actually been around since 1989. They started as Kentex Time, in 1989, as an OEM manufacturer, and in 1998, they started producing watches under the Kentex brand. The model I reviewed is the Kentex ...
