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.

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...

TW Steel Mitchell Niemeyer Special Edition

One of TW Steel’s newest releases is the 45mm Canteen Mitchell Niemeyer Special Edition. Please take a look at my video below for an HD look and my initial impressions. Since posting sneak peeks on social media and checking out other sites that have posted about it, I noticed some said they found the stars on the dial to be tacky. I guess that is just one of those subjective things as I found the ...

resco-manus

Recently, I was fortunate enough to get a Resco Manus Chronograph sample in for review. I say fortunate only because I have wanted to check out a Resco product for a few years, and now I get to share my hands on experience with all of you. For some that are not familiar, Resco Instruments was started in 2009 by Rob Smith and his wife Nicole. Rob is an active duty Navy Seal, and as such, the watche...

elliot-brown-canford

Some of you may remember the Elliot Brown Bloxworth review Michael Wolf did awhile back, here on WatchReport. If not, you can read Michaels review HERE , and also get some info on Elliot Brown and how this newer brand started their journey. Michael’s review got me interested in the brand, and so I reached out to Elliot Brown to have their other model, the Canford, sent to me for review so I can se...

Szanto-4101

  When you think of fashion watches, you think of watches that really do not have quality components, because the watch was designed more for aesthetic. Some people would consider fashion watches “cheap”, or cheaply made. I occasionally agree. When I found out about Szanto Watches and spoke with the company, I was told the bulk of the collection is fashion orientated. So when the watch arrive...

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.
