glycine_f104

I am admittedly a big fan of Glycine. They are more mainstream than some brands and many of the watch community own at least one of their models, or have at least heard of them, but they are still somewhat more niche than say Tag Heuer or Hamilton. They have a wide range of models, from the Combat Diver models, to the Lagunare, to their classic dress watches and the ever popular Airman models. Tod...

panzera flieger

Black and Blue. The burger you ask? No. A bruise? Nope, not that either. The new Panzera Flieger 47? Yes, that would be what I am referring to. As the name would imply, the Panzera Flieger is 47mm and is another take on your standard pilot/flieger watch. There’s definitely a strong similarity to an IWC Big Pilot, though you can get a Panzera Flieger for a fraction of the price. But will it b...

meister_mstr_aviator

Lately, I am on a kick enjoying reviewing watches that present themselves as truly good values. Today, I’d like to share my thoughts about a new Aviator model from Meister (MSTR) Watches. Good looking Aviator style watches can be difficult to locate at times, especially at a reasonable price. Before we get into the watch, I want to share a little bit about MSTR watches as described on their ...

Momentum Announces the Vortech GMT (with an Alarm!)

Here is an announcement we can really get excited about. Canada’s Momentum Watches has announced a very cool looking titanium aviator that features both GMT and alarm complications. This new model is called the Vortech GMT and, given its feature set, should make for a very practical and easy-to-wear watch. This new model will be available soon and sports a 44mm titanium case with a lug to lu...

Casio GW-3500B-1A Review

I like analog-digital watches, and Casio makes some of the best. Today we review the GW-3500B-1A, a new entrant from their Aviation series of G-Shocks. Designed for flying and high acceleration, this reverse-LCD model is on the high end of the line: Case is 49.1mm by 16.4mm, 75g, rubber and plastic with stainless steel caseback. Domed mineral crystal Radio set, six bands ‘atomic timekeeping&...

Casio-G-Shock-GW-3000B

Big, bold and analog: this is the GW-3000, from the G-Shock Aviation line. Today we review the GW-3000B, the version with an orange dial and metal bracelet. Let’s get started with the basic features and measurements: Available in blue or orange with a PVD case, and orange/white with a unplated steel case. Tough solar power, 5 month power reserve 6-band atomic timekeeping, accurate to within ...

Bell-&-Ross-Instrument-BR-01-92-Compass

Bell & Ross has just caught my eye with one of the more interesting aviation watches I've seen in some time: the Instrument BR 01-92 Compass. As you can see, the design is inspired by a traditional aviation compass. Rather than hands that move around a dial, the movement contains...

Casio-G-Shock-GW-2000

Casio G-Shocks play many roles: fashion icons, hardcore tool watches, respectable divers, etc. Today, we look at something of a new phase for the G-Shock line in the form of a “multi role fighter.” The Casio G-Shock GW-2000 sports aviation styling while retaining the GMT features of many of its...
