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.

Magrette Regattare 11

Magrette Regattare 11 With similar specifications to the Waterman, the Magrette Regattare 11 is not a huge change for the lineup of the New Zealand brand, though it does have a different look, and a different appeal. The Waterman was more vintage inspired with its dial and hands, and especially the protruding sapphire crystal.  The Regattare 11 is an updated version of their 2011 model, coming in ...

Victorinox Swiss Army Inox Diver

Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Diver Debuting at Basel earlier this year, (along with a few other versions of the INOX), was the Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Diver. This updates the original version with an added dive bezel, and also a bump in size to 45mm. The price has stayed basically the same, so they did not go crazy with a price hike for a few added features and while overall I like the new INOX D...

Swiss Military GMT

Swiss Military GMT When it comes to inspiration or design, there is no doubt the Swiss Military GMT used Rolex as an example, more specifically the Sub C in my opinion. The case and crown guards are obviously similar, though the dial, hands and markers are completely different. In my view, the Swiss Military is more of an homage than most, as most homages are almost copies with a different name on...

Spinnaker Vessel

Spinnaker Vessel Wood watches have risen in popularity for the fashion watch segment in the past few years. The Spinnaker Vessel is one that combines wood and stainless steel, in a classic chronograph look that definitely lies in the fashion watch segment. Why do I say fashion watch? It is more about style over function in a sense. Mineral crystal and a Japanese quartz movement are the biggest thi...

Marc & Sons Pilot

Marc & Sons Pilot Marc & Sons is another brand that my fellow colleagues have reviewed here on Watchreport, and I of course read/watched the reviews and felt that the watches while homages for the most part, were well made, especially for the price point. Getting the new automatic Pilot in hand has only strengthened my opinion on them. I honestly thought it might be a little cheap feeling ...

Magrette Waterman

Magrette Waterman The Magrette Waterman is the latest release from the New Zealand microbrand, and one many have been looking forward to. Well, if you are a fan of micro brands or Magrette that is. And when I say they have been looking forward to it, not exactly this particular model, but one that measures in at 42mm. Yes, Magrette released two new models so far this year, both 42mm in size, this ...
