Reactor Poseidon Review

As I mentioned in a past review, I have been fortunate to see numerous Reactor watch models over the last few years and each time I come away impressed. One of my personal grail watches since its release has been the Poseidon. The model just seemed to demonstrate the values of the Reactor company better than any other model released at that time; “big and bold.” Reactor promotes &ldquo...

Jenny Caribbean 300 Review

Earlier this month, I was fortunate enough to receive a watch that I’ve longed for but never had the courage to pull the trigger on. The reason why wasn’t quite clear to me, and it was from that view point that I set out to review this iconic brand. Jenny Watches, which is actually pronounced “yen-ny,” is a brand that is historically rich, with patents dating as far back as...

Panzera Breuer 44 Review

Panzera has released their second model, the Breuer 44. The Breuer, which I describe as a more classic dress watch, but updated to a modern size, is much different than their first offering, which was a Flieger model. The reason that I mention this, is while I love dive watches, so many new companies start off with dive watches. Panzera has gone in the opposite direction. Because, after all, we al...

Elysee Rally Timer Review

Start your engines! Today I am taking a look at the Elysee Rally Timer. Before I get into this new Rally Timer model, for information on Elysee Watches, please see a review of their previous model HERE. The Rally Timer, as the name would imply, is a racing inspired chronograph watch. This model comes in two versions: Black Dial and White Full Lume Dial. The full lume dial version is the watch bein...

Gavox Squadron

I am constantly on the hunt for great looking military style watches, especially with a Sinn watch brand type appearance to them. The Gavox Squadron really delivers this at a much more affordable cost. Some background information direct from Gavox Watches indicates the company was registered in 2011 by the grandson of one of the legendary “Flying Tigers”. Gavox strives to produce timin...

MVMT White/Tan Leather Review

If you recall, a while back I reviewed the Black on Black model from MVMT’s collection line. After a few emails and comments inquiring about the leather band option, I figured a follow up review was in order. MVMT offers 2 variations of their watches; leather or stainless steel bracelet, totaling six different variations. Keeping it simple, MVMT (or better know as Movement) uses the sam...

Resco Manus

Recently, I was fortunate enough to get a Resco Manus Chronograph sample in for review. I say fortunate only because I have wanted to check out a Resco product for a few years, and now I get to share my hands on experience with all of you. For some that are not familiar, Resco Instruments was started in 2009 by Rob Smith and his wife Nicole. Rob is an active duty Navy Seal, and as such, the watche...

Elliot Brown Canford

Some of you may remember the Elliot Brown Bloxworth review Michael Wolf did awhile back, here on WatchReport. If not, you can read Michaels review HERE , and also get some info on Elliot Brown and how this newer brand started their journey. Michael’s review got me interested in the brand, and so I reached out to Elliot Brown to have their other model, the Canford, sent to me for review so I ...

Momentum VS-3 Altimeter

Over the last several years, I’ve dabbled a bit in the tactical watch category since it happens to be the best type of watch for my full-time job as a police officer. While G-Shocks and iPhones seem to dominate the profession, I can’t help but like the convenience an ABC watch offers the user; in this case, me. For those that feel clueless about what an ABC watch is, do not fret, as ma...

Reactor Valkyrie Rob Holland Signature Edition

  I have been fortunate to see numerous Reactor watch models over the last few years and I am always impressed each time I get to check out anything from their collections, especially something new. I recently acquired a Poseidon and was so satisfied with each and every aspect of that model and my feelings are no different toward the Valkyrie Holland Signature Edition, the subject of this rev...

Detomaso Matera

Detomaso is a German based watch company that was founded in 1993. As I mentioned in a previous review, the company has various watch models that would be perfect in a wide range of venues such as sporting environments, a night out on the town and even in the executive board room. The Matera model DT1007-C is another model that I believe is part of the Classic collection from Detomaso, which incor...

Szanto 4101

  When you think of fashion watches, you think of watches that really do not have quality components, because the watch was designed more for aesthetic. Some people would consider fashion watches “cheap”, or cheaply made. I occasionally agree. When I found out about Szanto Watches and spoke with the company, I was told the bulk of the collection is fashion orientated. So when the ...
