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.

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...

Deep-Blue-Master-Explorer-1000

I’m very glad to be able to review this new model from Deep Blue. The Master Explorer Diver 1000, as they call it, is a great dive watch for under $500, and one that I am really impressed with.Coming in at 45mm wide and 16mm thick, the Master Explorer 1000 is not a small watch, but not too large to be cumbersome. The Master Explorer 1000 wears flat against the wrist, making it a very comfort...

Ocean7-LM-8

Ocean7 Watch Company’s newest model is the Ocean7 LM-8, a homage to a Rolex Deep Sea Sea Dweller (DSSD), but with enough of its own added features to not make it a blatant copy.  A friend of mine had recently purchased a LM-8. He raved so much about it, I had him send it to me so I can do a hands-on review. First, we take a look at the packaging. Ocean7 delivers on both presentation and prot...
