RGM Watches: True American Timepieces

We don't usually talk about high-end dress watches, and even more rarely about custom-made mechanical pieces, so this article is a bit of an experiment for us. But RGM -- both the company and the watches -- is too unique not have some mention on Watch Report. As amazing as...

Review of the Seiko Kinetic Scubamaster “Stingray”

View the Seiko Kinetic Scubamaster photo gallery. It took a long time to add the Seiko Scubamaster "Stingray" to my collection of divers. I don't remember where I first came across this watch, but since the moment I saw it, I was smitten. After over a month of frantic and...

The 1977 Pulsar Calculator Watch

I came across this classic while doing some shopping on eBay the other day. After 18 bids, it ended up going for $1,125 -- not bad for a 27-year-old timepiece. Although the watch is nearly as old as I am, I was actually able to dig up some pretty interesting...
