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.

Alpina Heritage Pilot Watch Review With Video Review

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.

Magrette Moana Pacific Pro Diver G14 Watch Review and Video Review

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 Watch Review and Video Review

Let’s start this review off with the very “Uniq” packaging they have used for this model. The watch arrives...

Deep Blue Master Explorer 1000 Watch Review and Video Review

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 Watch Review with Video Review

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...
