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.

Stowa TO2 Flieger

Stowa TO2 Flieger Simple. Clean. Refined. That is the Stowa TO2 Flieger in a nutshell. Oh, did I forget beautiful? Yes, it is downright beautiful as well. For those that did not watch the video yet or maybe are unfamiliar with Stowa, let me just say, do not let the adjective simple mislead you. This is not one of those Alibaba “minimalist” Chinese $5 watches that new “brands” pop up with all the t...

Pontvs Nessi

Pontvs Nessi I can’t imagine it is easy to start a watch company. Sure, these days, we have the internet and it may be easier than ever to hook up with a factory and get a product produced, if you have the money. If you don’t have the money, you have crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter. Sure, you will still have to put in some initial money on your part for renderings, prototype...

AVI-8 Flyboy Bronze

Avi-8 Flyboy Bronze If you are familiar with AVI-8 watches then you are probably familiar with the Flyboy line as it is definitely one of the most popular in their lineup. We have reviewed a few of them here at Watchreport and this time I will be taking a look at the bronze version. Most of the time when someone says bronze watches, you probably think of dive watch, but here we have a bronze pilot...

Elliot Brown Broadstone

Elliot Brown Broadstone A lot of companies claim they make tough, hard use watches. Whether it be dive watches, field watches, you name it. Most of those companies do not back up their claims though; they do not even attempt to. Elliot Brown does. The Elliot Brown Broadstone is not only  worn by the skippers of the Clipper Round the World Race this year, they have also bolted one to the bowsprit o...

Zelos Abyss II

Zelos Abyss II Even though the bronze fad is over (sarcasm), the Zelos Abyss II is one of the latest models from the brainchild of Elshan Tang. There are a few differences from the first version, but overall it retains its look. Different chapter ring, the dual crowns are now bronze and not PVD and possibly the biggest change, the movement. The Abyss II houses the Sellita SW200 Swiss Movement inst...

Ventus Mori Diver

Ventus Mori Diver Ventus has released another version of the Mori Diver, this time in a gunmetal PVD steel and a stainless steel with blue. Previous versions of the Ventus Mori Diver only came in brass, so this is a variation for those who do not like brass or bronze watches. Ventus is what most call a budget or value brand, as the watches do offer a lot in terms of quality and materials for not a...

Andersmann Oceanmaster II

Andersmann Oceanmaster II I have admired Andersmann Watches from afar since they hit the scene, which was about 2 years ago. I could tell these were high quality watches just from the pictures on the website. Then I started to see pictures on Instagram and other blogs and I KNEW they were high quality. Andersmann is not your typical microbrand, at least not in the way some have come to think of mi...

Tockr Air Defender

Tockr Air Defender I have a soft spot for German style inspired watches, so when I saw the Tockr Air Defender, I needed to check it out. I will get into the inspiration for this watch later on, but I wanted to talk a little bit about how this company came about. I have had a few conversations with Austin Ivey, part owner of Tockr Watches and he did something that is rarely seen these days in the w...

Origin Vintage Field

Origin Vintage Field Classic. Ageless. Timeless. These are all good descriptors for the Origin Vintage Field Watch. A watch that will always be in style, no matter what decade. Something you can wear whether you are 20 or 80. Boy, that sure does sound like an advertisement, but I do enjoy this watch. There is something about the simplicity that draws me in. Just because it is not flashy does not m...

Ocean Crawler Lume Rush

Ocean Crawler Lume Rush I am not a diver, nor have I ever claimed to be. I just happen to love dive watches. Being real, this watch I am reviewing today might never be used for diving either, though I am pretty sure as far as construction goes, it could handle it. The Ocean Crawler Lume Rush Diver is not your typical dive watch, especially with the sandwich cut-out dial, but it is fun to look at, ...

Scurfa Diver One 2.0

Scurfa Diver One 2.0 The dive watch. We all love them. Well, at least I do. What is better than a really well built, classic looking dive watch? An affordable one. Yes, the Scurfa Diver One 2.0 is using a quartz movement, but it is also $234 shipped and it has all the bells and whistles we look for, including a custom made rubber strap. An evolution to the Rolex Comex divers, and an evolution to i...

William L. 1985 Vintage Diver

William L.1985 Vintage Diver Vintage. It is a word that is said a lot these days. I cannot even begin to count how many watches I see or review that are vintage or retro inspired. It is the trend these days, for how long; who knows, but many brands will ride the train until we are on to the next trend. Many brands are coming out with vintage designs these days but not many are doing vintage sizing...
