The Zenith Espada

There are few high-end brands that we respect as much as Zenith and you don’t have to look much further than their website to understand why. Zenith is responsible for the stunning Elite Captain Dual Time, the very cool Striking 10th and even the Captain Windsor which boasts both an annual calendar and a chronograph for a price that is literally without competition. All Zenith timepieces are...

Brand Highlight: March LA.B Watches

One brand which has caught our eye in the past few months is the California and Biarritz, France based March LA.B watches. March LA.B seem to be very capable of making drool-worthy dress and casual watches with a unique blend of retro and European styling. While they feature a full men’s and women’s collection, we will highlight only a few pieces that have kept us returning to their si...

Dress watches to know

Along with the slow-moving trend back towards thin watches, dress watches have also been enjoying some increased amount of the spotlight. For whatever reason, brands are returning to the simple and classic stying of 50’s and 60’s to inspire new and modern timepieces. Here are just a few models that stand out for being beautiful, simple and aestetically versatile enough to suit a wide r...

OCEAN7 Classic and AirNautic Classic 24 Review

OCEAN7 and its sister brand AirNautic, are well known for making sport and dive watches with a variety of styles and quite a few models have been seen on Watch Report in the past. After so many dive and aviation watches it was surprising to see a modern dress watch come from OCEAN7 but they have made one and its known simply as The Classic. We  have two examples to show you today one is the O...

Review of the Bianci H262LWS

We don't have as many reviews of women's watches as we should, so this one will be a welcome addition. Say hello to a newcomer, Bianci Watches, and their ceramic model H262LWS. Let's start off with specifications: Swiss quartz movement using a conventional battery. 38.4mm wide by 12.2mm thick; 42.7mm...

Review of the Seiko SBQJ015 Perpetual Calendar GMT

View the Seiko SBQJ015 Photo Gallery. When I realized that most of my collection had shifted toward divers and sports watches, I started to keep an eye out for something a little more elegant — something that might be slightly more at home with dress shirt than a 15mm high...

Review of the Xetum Tyndall

There aren't a lot of American companies making watches these days -- RGM, Kobold, Bathys; a handful of others. So let's welcome new San Francisco brand Xetum -- the brainchild of founder, Jeff Kuo. He's started a new company with two original-design, Swiss-movement watches: the Tyndall (pictured), and Stinson. Jeff...

The New Rolex Explorer

Rolex's second announcement this year at BaselWorld 2010 was a redesigned Explorer. I've always loved the Explorer for its unparalleled simplicity and stark elegance, but at only 36 millimeters, it was a tad bit diminutive by today's standards. Not anymore. The size of the new Explorer is much more in...

Review of the Stowa Marine Original Limited Edition II

This review is of a watch with a minimalist design, the Stowa Marine Original Limited Edition II. Part of a series of 120 (of which 80 were sold in the US) the Limited Edition looks almost identical to the regular Marine Original Black with Arabic numbers. Specifications: Handwinding Unitas 6498...

Review: The Poljot Traveller Alarm

Russians aren't generally known for their electronics or their cars, but you may want to pay attention to their watches. The Poljot Traveller Alarm hails from the motherland and does so with simple style, interesting features, and some old-world charm. I bought this watch second hand and in the spirit...

Review of the Citizen Chrono-Time AT

View the Citizen Chrono-Time AT Photo Album. The choice for an "always right" (solar-powered, atomic time synchronized) dress watch has, up to now, been somewhat limited. Apart from the Japan-only Seiko Brightz, the only watches in this space have been from Casio (and their Oceanus brand). The Casio watches that...

JS Watch Co and the Frisland 42mm

Last week, Watch Report received an email from a very kind reader in Iceland who wrote to inform us of the JS Watch Co brand based in Reykjavik, Iceland. JS Watch Co is certainly worth a look on style and attitude alone. The small company only produces 5 models but...
