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.

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 ...

boschett-legacy-watch-review

Dress Watch. Classic. Modern. Elegant. Affordable. Quality.  These are all terms that might not always be synonymous with each other, but that is how I describe Boschett’s first dress watch, the Legacy. This is my third installment of Boschett reviews, as I have recently reviewed the new Bochett Reef Ranger 2 and the Harpoon. Boschett Legacy The Legacy is a bit of a risk for Boschett, seeing as th...

Meister-Racer-Chronograph-watch-review

In the world of cushion case watches, especially the Panerai style, you don’t see many chronographs. So it was exciting to see the Meister Racer Chronograph, which brings these two elements together. Housed in the 45mm Stainless Steel case is a Seiko VD53 Quartz Chronograph Movement, a carbon fiber dial, and it uses a mineral crystal. This version has a 3 link oyster style stainless bracelet and r...

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.

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 ...
